ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?
As recorded by Richard Shindell on "Courier" (2002)

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 'em back,
'Cause in your haste on Halloween,
You left your camera on the bed.
Where we played roles in black and white,
You left a roll of black and white.
I set the timer, thought of you,
Put the lens up to my head.
I took a photograph for you.
What comes out gray is really red.
So are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

I smashed your pumpkin on the floor.
The candle flickered at my feet.
As goblins flew across the moon.
The children peered into the room.
A cowboy shivered on the porch.
Cinderella checked her watch.
A hobo waited in the street.
An angel whispered "trick or treat."
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.
So are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

I've sat all night and now it's dawn
And I cannot believe my eyes.
There's garbage strewn across the lawn
Where we once stared up at the sky,
And streams of paper fill the tree
That hovered over you and me,
And shaving cream covers the car
That we picked up in Baltimore.
And though I know it's hard to tell,
I hope that what's-his-name treats you well.
I still maintain that he's a bum,
But it's your money; have some fun.
And are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

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.
So are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Are you?
