The song is told from the perspective of a once-successful performer, who laments about his current lack of success and appeal to audiences because he sings “sad” songs. He refers to his past successes, including his ability to entertain large crowds and repertoire of mainly uptempo, “happy” songs. However, his personal life is anything but happy, and it affects his performing style; he soon begins performing only heartbreak songs, songs he quickly finds his fans don’t want to hear. His fans soon begin alienating him, and soon nobody is coming to his shows. Worse, when he tries to rekindle his success by performing his previous “happy” songs, he finds he is unable to credibly do so because of his personal heartbreak.
Later, the performer’s tour manager contacts him and announces he is dropping him from the tour. He admonishes him: “What happened son, you had it made?/Why’d you change the way you played?”

Ronnie Milsap – Nobody Likes Sad Songs lyrics

You’ve seen the way I entertain a crowd
I use to pack ’em in for miles around
And I play the happy songs that made ’em smile
Why’d you want to go and change my style?
Nobody like sad songs, the ones about goodbyes
Songs about broken hearts with tears in your eyes
Nobody like sad songs, since you went away
Seems like sad songs are all I can play
The crowd gets restless and they drift away
Lately no one wants to hear me play
I tried to do the songs I use to do
Ah, but then I think of you
And nobody like sad songs, the ones about goodbyes
Songs about broken hearts with tears in your eyes
Nobody like sad songs, since you went away
Seems like sad songs are all I can play
The boss just told me, “Ronnie, things aren’t going well”
Hes gonna let me go, I can tell
He said, “What happened son, you had it made
Why’d you change the way you played”
Cause, nobody like sad songs, the ones about goodbyes
Songs about broken hearts with tears in your eyes
Nobody like sad songs, since you went away
Seems like, seems like sad songs are all I can play
Nobody like sad songs, the ones about goodbyes
Songs about broken hearts with tears in your eyes
Nobody like sad songs, since you went away
And it seems like sad songs are all I can play
Nobody like sad songs, the ones about goodbyes
Songs about broken hearts
