Lyrics
Do you have the time To listen to me whine About nothing and everything All at once (Verse 1) I am one of those Melodramatic fools Neurotic to the bone No doubt about it
Sometimes I give myself the creeps Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me It all keeps adding up (Chorus) I think I'm crackin up Am I just parananoid Am I just stoned
(Bridge)
I went to a shrink To analyse my dreams He said it's lack of sex That's bringin me down (Verse 2) I went to a whore He said my life's a bore So quit my whinin Cuz it's bringin her down
(Chorus) (Bridge) (Interlude) (Chorus)
