CHORUS:
I'm a-havin' a nervous breakdown
A mental shakedown
See my hands, how they shiver
See my knees, how they quiver
My whole body's in a jitter
I'm a-havin' a nervous breakdown

Well I went to see a doctor just the other day
& I've got to tell you what the man had to say
Well he said "Hey boy, you just gotta slow down
You can't keep a-traipsin' all over town
After givin' you a physical check
I've come to the conclusion you're a total wreck

(chorus)

I've made up my mind I'd better change my ways
My shattered nerves have seen better days
There'll be no more girls for a week or 2
No more runnin' 'round with the usual crew
No more movies or stayin' out late
My baby have to find herself another date

(chorus)
