A Good Sad Book is a song from A King and His Hawk.

Lyrics[]

First Version[]

Theo: Well, Sometimes I Get Teary When I Read The Hero Dies.

Sometimes I Cry A River, When I Read The Princess Cries.

When Kittens Lose Their Mittens,

Or Away The Birdie Flies!

Oh Yes, I Love A Good Sad Book!

I Laugh When I Read Comics, And I Think When I Read Facts.

But Give Me Something Tragic, When I'm Looking To Relax.

When Knights Fall Off Their Horses,

Or When Humpty Dumpty Cracks!

I'm Crazy For A Good Sad Book!

Some Folks Love History, Or Maybe A Mystery!

Or Poetry, Or Something Really Gory!

I Swear I'm Not Lying,

I Simply Love Crying.

When It's Only A Sad, Sad, Story.

Yes, If A Book's Depressing, It Makes Me Tickled Pink!

Someone's In The Desert Sun Without A Drop To Drink!

Or Somebody Gets Shipwrecked,

Or The Dino Goes Extinct!

Oh....Yes!

I Love A Sad Sad Book! (Such A Sad Sad Book)

Oh Yes I Love A

All: Good Sad Book....

(All Crying)

Theo: I Swear I'm Not Lying,

I Simply Love Crying.

When It's Only A Sad, Sad, Story.

All: Well, Sometimes I Get Teary When I Read The Hero Dies.

Sometimes I Cry A River, When I Read The Princess Cries.

When Kittens Lose Their Mittens,

Or Away The Birdie Flies!

Oh Yes, I Love A Good Sad Book!

I Love A Good Sad Book!

Oh Yes I Love A

All: Good Sad Book....
