Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Weird Al Yankovic

Check out the index.

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Happy Birthday"
The Lyrics:
The monkeys in the Pentagon are gonna cook our goose
Their finger's on the button, all they need is an excuse
This song always makes me unhappy. The name of the song is "Happy Birthday", but the lyrics to this (especially the ones shared in this entry, as an example) are just kind of morbid.

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Skipper Dan"
The Lyrics:
Oh, the critics, they used to say.
I was the new Olivier.
Thought I'd be the toast of Sundance or even Cannes.
Aw, but don't bother tryin' to IMDB me.
The only place you might possibly see me.
Is ridin' my little boat around Adventureland.
It ain't exactly what I planned.
The song is about a aspiring actor who fails to make it and has to take a different job.
