Don’t Play Sad Songs

Don’t play me those sad songs
When I am feeling down
Play me something with a base
Or the meanest shit around.

If I am suffering heartbreak
Don’t want to hear a similar sound
Better play me ‘My Girl’
Or something upbeat from Motown.

Tell me something different
Or only of the highs of love
Never tell me straight
Especially, when you should.
