Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Terry Jacks

Check out the index.

Seasons in the Sun album at
Terry Jacks', "Seasons in the Sun"
The Lyrics:
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons out of time.
The original song was performed by Jacques Brel and it was called 'Le Moribond (The Dying Man)' and it was more cynical than the Terry Jacks version with a haunting 50's style guitar riff.
