Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Wake Up Little Susie"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Weve both been sound asleep
Wake up, little Susie and weep
The movies over, its four oclock
And were in trouble deep
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well
What are we gonna tell your mama
What are we gonna tell your pa
What are we gonna tell our friends
When they say ooh-la-la
Why They're Dirty:
I don't think that this song is dirty at all, but I remember that my mother thought it was scandalous. She thought that they fell asleep after having sex. I just think that they fell asleep watching TV.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Cathy's Clown"
The Lyrics:
Don't want your love anymore.
Don't want your kisses, that's for sure.
I die each time I hear this sound,
"Here he comes, That's Cathy's Clown."
Why:
This is a story of a guy becoming an object of ridicule because the title Cathy has humiliated him with lies. When I heard it as a kid it stuck out in my mind as one of the most quirkily romantic tunes of the early sixties. Quirky, yes, because it does have a few points where a slightly downbeat note betrays the song's angst. But when I was a kid, that was easily overlooked and it still sticks in my mind as one of the most dreamily romantic tunes of the era, consistent with a notion I then had, not understanding most of the words, that any song about a clown must surely be cheerful. And even now that I understand the lyrics, the tune alone still seems predominantly upbeat, for all the angst being conveyed.
