Love the song but feel the people it talks about are not particularly authentic. I suspect that is why the song was written.
Don’t get me wrong I have met some lovely, genuine people but I am not a big fan of the whole “Fake it, till you make it. ” concept.
To quote my Israeli boss,
“If you no like why you no say you no like.”
I suspect this is a much healthier attitude.
Fake happy people remind me of that line from Shakespeare:
“A goodly villain with a smiling cheek.”
