Should It Have Been So Chirpy?

When we were growing up, we loved listening to these Golden Oldies tape compilations my father had. One of the songs that we listened to over and over, was Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep (some of the others were Petula Clark's Downtown, Sandie Shaw's Puppet on a String and Bonnie Tyler's Lost in France).

However, reading the lyrics today, I don't quite understand why Middle of the Road's song was so "chirpy"...
