Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Richard Harris

A Tramp Shining album at
Richard Harris', "MacArthur Park"
The Lyrics:
MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet green icing flowing down. Someone left the cake out in the rain. I don't think that I can take it, 'cause it took so long to bake it. And I'll never have that recipe again.
This song mentions about a man who loves a girl, but she wants something else. Donna Summer later released a Disco version of this which is more upbeat, but the lyrics are still depressing.
