They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!
by Dr. Demento



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 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 hee hee 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 and
They’re coming to take me away ha ha!

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house and this is how you pay 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 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! 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 and
They’re coming to take me away 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.
