STOP YOUR SOBBING S/HE'S AN IDIOT

Christine Lavin's so cool. She not only wrote this incredible song (and made it adaptable for either gender) but she has offered both versions as freely available mp3 files!:

You cannot buy this song, but as a public service to wronged people everywhere I am making it available here as a free mp3 download.
-- Christine Lavin


From http://www.christinelavin.com/stopyoursobbing.htm

Free mp3 downloads

Christine asks: Are you a man or a woman who recently had your heart smashed to pieces by someone it turns out all your friends hated anyway? Or do you have a friend who is wallowing in neverending emotional agony over a boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife who left them -- but you are secretly happy because you hated this horrible person who done them wrong? If you can answer "Yes" to either question -- have I got a song for you. In fact, two songs: "Stop Your Sobbing HE'S An Idiot (Happy Dance)" and "Stop Your Sobbing SHE'S An Idiot (Happy Dance)."

Free mp3 downloads of:

"STOP YOUR SOBBING HE'S AN IDIOT
(HAPPY DANCE)"

(4.4mb mp3, 4.46 in length)

"STOP YOUR SOBBING SHE'S AN IDIOT
(HAPPY DANCE)"

(4.4mb mp3, 4.47 in length)"

You cannot buy this song, but as a public service to wronged people everywhere I am making it available here as a free mp3 download. Please send this to everyone you know who needs help getting over a breakup. The lyrix are posted below so you can even sing and dance along (which helps speed up the healing process). People have asked me what exactly is 'the happy dance' that I sing about here, and the best way to describe the dance move (it's only 2 seconds long) is this: raise both fists shoulder high, shake them for a second as you run in place. There's not a whole lot you can do in 2 seconds, and any variation on that basic move is enthusiastically encouraged.

STOP YOUR SOBBING HE'S AN IDIOT (HAPPY DANCE)
by Christine Lavin

No one thought he was right for you
but no one dare utter that out loud
when the preacher said, "speak now or forever hold your peace"
an uncomfortable silence fell over the crowd

Then we watched you try to make him happy
as the days and weeks and months and years rolled by
then one morning you woke to find that he had left
now you cry and you cry and you cry

Stop your sobbing he's an idiot
we never liked him and we never understood
why you fell for this stupid cretin
when you are so sweet and kind and good

Behind your back we are doing the happy dance (Happy Dance!)
we're thrilled we never have to see him anymore
be glad you are no longer tethered to
the world's biggest ingrate and bore

All you remember are the happy times
that the two of you supposedly shared
but all we remember is how hard you tried
to please him when the truth is
he barely cared

Then we watched you lose your zest for living
we're here to tell you, you can get it back
he's been an unhealthy addiction
think of him as potato chips dipped in chocolate then crack!

Stop your sobbing he's a heartless meanie
we never liked him and we never understood
why you fell for this witless weenie
when you are so smart so kind so good

Behind your back we are doing the happy dance (Happy Dance!)
we're thrilled we never have to see him anymore
be glad you are no longer beholden to
the world's biggest ingrate and bore

Was he as bad as we've made him out to be?
let's think about this . . . no, he was worse
but what a stroke of luck
you are no longer stuck
to the human equivalent of a spooky voodoo curse

Don't waste one more precious moment
on someone your friends are so sick of
look at what you had
a little good but a lotta bad
and where was the love? where was the love?

Welcome back to the land of the living
we missed you we are so glad you have returned
now's the time to let bygones be
halleluja you are free
let's all be grateful for the lessons learned

Stop your sobbing he's a cheap right wing xenophobe
we never liked him and we never understood
how you fell for a mental snowglobe
when you are so decent, kind and good

Join us now as we do the happy dance (Happy Dance!)
we're thrilled we never have to see him anymore
be glad you are no longer married to
the world's biggest ingrate and bore
he's the world's bigest ingrate and bore!
HAPPY DANCE!
