"They're Coming To Take Me Away"
by: napoleon XIV
songwriters: N. Bonaparte (aka Jerry Samuels)

Remember when you ran away and
I got on my knees and begged you
not to leave because I'd go berzerk?
Well, you left me anyhow and the days got
worse and worse and now you see
I've gone completely out of my mind.
And They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time,
and I'll be happy to see those nice young men
in their clean white coats and
they're coming to take me away ha ha

You thought it was joke and so you laughed,
you laughed when I had said that
losing you would make me flip my lid, right?
You know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed,
you laughed and laughed and then you left,
but now you know I'm utterly mad.

And they're coming to take me away Ha Ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and
chirping birds and basket weavers who
sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
They're coming to take me away ha ha...

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house,
and this is how you paid me back
for all my kind unselfish loving deeds.
Huh? Well you just wait they'll find you yet,
and when they do they'll put you
in the ASPCA you mangy mutt.

And They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
and I'll be happy to see those nice men
in their clean white coats

They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and
chirping birds and basket weavers who sit
and smile and twiddle thier thumbs and toes
They're coming to take me away Ha Ha Ha

Your home the one the bank foreclosed,
You cried to me Monogamy is the
way we both must live or you'll feel hurt.
But, I see, I see there's someone new,
your anxious poly-pure-bred coat was
even gone at our place while I paid the rent, thanks!

And They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the loony bin with all you can eat perscription drugs
like torizine, and lithium, and electric shock and insulin
They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
