Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Fats Domino

Check out the index.

Christmas Gumbo album at
Fats Domino's, "Ain't That A Shame "
The Lyrics:
You made me cry
when you said, "goodbye"
Ain't that a shame?
my tears fell like rain.
This song may have a nice, jazzy beat to it (as is true of nearly all Fats Domino songs), but that doesn't change the fact that it's sung from the point of view of a guy whose girlfriend/wife/whatever has left him.

Fats Domino's, "Blueberry Hill"
The Lyrics:
The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody.
But somehow the vows you made
Were never to be.
Though we're apart,
You're part of me still.
For you were my thrill
On Blueberry Hill.
Although the tune is upbeat and the breezy setting stirs with nature's vibrancy, and "love's sweet melody" is referred to, the song is basically a lament about lost love.
