Since You Went Away (Monkees):

 

starts off like a broken-hearted break-up song: 

 

"You said you couldn't tell the doormat from my face
You said if I had brains I would pawn them"

 

But the mood quickly turns to glee:  

" the plants have grown
The dog came home
The bills are all getting paid
Things are much better since you went away"

Ready or Not (Jackson Browne):

 

"Someone's gonna have to explain it to me
I'm not sure what it means
My baby's feelin' funny in the morning
She's having trouble getting into her jeans
Her waist-line seems to be expanding"

Escape (The Piña Colada Song)-Rubert Holmes

 

So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant
I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady
And she said, "Aw, it's you"
Then we laughed for a moment
And I said, "I never knew"
