Are You Happy Now?


by Richard Shindell
V1:	You took the toaster when you went, you never paid your half the rent
You took the spices from the rack, but you don’t have to put them back
‘Cause in your haste on Halloween, you left your camera on the bed
We played roles in black and white, you left the roll of black and white
I set the timer, I thought of you, put the lens up to my head
I took a photograph for you, what comes out grey is really red

 V2:	I smashed your pumpkin on the floor, the candle flickered at my feet
As goblins flew across the moon, children peered into the room
A cowboy shivered on the porch, and Cinderella checked her watch
A hobo waited in the street, an angel whispered “trick or treat”
But what was I supposed to do, but to sit there in the dark
I was amazed, to think that you would take the candy with you too
[2 & 3]

 C:	Are you happy now?  Are you happy now?  Are you happy now?

 V3:	Sat all night, but now its gone, and I could not believe my eyes
There’s garbage strewn across the lawn, where we once stared up at the sky
Streams of paper filled the trees, that covered over you and me
Shaving cream covers the car, that we picked up in Baltimore
Though I know its hard to tell, I hope that, what’s his name treats you well
I still maintain that he’s a bum, but its your money, have some fun

  C:	Are you happy now?  Are you happy now? 	Are you happy now?

 V4:	You always asked why I had not
Written you a verse or two
Since that’s the one thing I regret
I dedicate this one to you
[4]
Gm - - - /    / C - - - /    / Gm - - - /    / Bb - - - /    //

  C:	Are you happy now?  Are you happy now?  Are you happy now?
  T:	Are you ... ?
