Dr. Demento – Mental Hospital lyrics

Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees and begged you
Not to leave because I'd go berserk?

Well!

You left me anyhow and then
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 hee hee 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 a joke and so
You laughed, you laughed
When I 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 hee hee ha ha
To the happy home
With flowers and trees and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes and
They're coming to take me away ha ha!

I cooked your food I cleaned your home
And this is how you pay me back
For all my unselfish loving deeds

Hah?

Well you just wait, they'll find you yet
And when they do they'll put you in
The aspca you mangey mutt

And

They're coming to take me away ha ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho hee hee 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!

To the happy home
With flowers and trees and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes and
They're coming to take me away ha ha!

(Mumbled) 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!
