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. 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 haaa They're coming to take me away ho ho hee hee ha haaa 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 haaa
