Mystery of the Gangster Ghost
(Curtain closes and SINGER [REMMY or MAYA] steps out)
ACT 1 SCENE 2 - SONG
When You’re Good You’re Lonesome -
Song and Lyrics by Grace Doro
I feel so sad and lonely I wish I knew just why Every one is
happy, While all I do is sigh. I walk the straight and
narrow path I’m good as I can be; Maybe that’s just what is
wrong, For it seems to me.
My mother always told me "Be very, very good;" I took her
advise, Like a good child always should. I went to bed at
eight o’clock But what did that get me? I have missed an
awful lot, Now I plainly see.
When you are good, you’re so lonesome, And when you’re
lonesome you’re blue; Sometimes it seems very hard to
believe Every dark cloud has a silver lining I think it’ll
get me a sweetie who’ll make afuss over me, Just love and
pet me all the day; Then I’ll never have to say When you are
good you’re so lonesome, And when you’re lonesome you’re blue.
