Album: Sad Man Happy Man (2009)
  • songfacts ®
  • Mike Doughty wrote this song after his now ex-girlfriend sent him a terse e-mail. Doughty says in the album's official press release: "It's my Gloria Gaynor moment. The message of the tune is: 'You’re f--ked, but it doesn't matter. I'll keep on with my spiritual journey.' Yes, I really am that much of a hippie." >>
