Very Sad Sack is a sad bag
Very, very sad
Very Sad Sack

Withered Hope says she is his friend, to the end
But she doesn't like Very Sad Sack

Today Withered Hope saw the Very Sad Sack
And she tried not to meet his eyes
As he cut out a paper heart,
Pinned it to his arm,
Told her everything he was holding in his head,
This is what he said:

Withered Hope, I'm in love with you,
Wanna live with you, Withered Hope!
Are you gonna say to me, this can never be,
Are you gonna say to me, Withered Hope?

Saaad Saaaaaaaaaack!
Saaad Saaaaaaaaaack!

Withered Hope says she has a soul mate
Living in a city in another state
But the soul mate thinks about a picture in a book
Of a beautiful crook
But the picture in the book, of the crook, is in love
With a brand new motorbike
But the motorbike doesn't like crooks
...it's in love with the Very Sad Sack!

Sad Sack, I'm in love with you,
Wanna live with you, Sad Sack!
Are you gonna say to me, this can never be,
Are you gonna say to me, Sad Sack?

Saaad Saaaaaaaaaack!
Saaad Saaaaaaaaaack!
