BALLAD OF I'M GONE CRAZY
S.G. Swain - 1982
Moma's in the back room making up the bed
Popa's in the front room shaking his head
Brother's in the bathtub with his boyfriend Fred
& I'm gone crazy today.
Sister's in the backyard climbing in a tree
she's hanging from a limb like a chimpanzee
I'm in the front yard staring at my feet -- IGCT.
My high-school teachers say that I'm a problem kid
Got plenty of brains, but don't use my head
But they never listened to a word I said -- IGCT.
English and Government and History and Gym
I took 'em all once and now I'm taking 'em again
what it all means is my bulb's a little dim -- IGCT.
My girlfriend hopes that I'm a gonna settle down
with kids and a house in the middle of town
she's looking in the catalogue at the wedding gowns -- IGCT.
Boss man down at the grocery store says
"Bag deze grossrees, den bag sum mower"
He don't know it but I'm pretty sure -- IGCT.
The president's gonna go and start another war
he'll call me up and I wonder what for
"overseas son, hut two three four" -- IGCT.
They got A-bombs, B-bombs, C-bombs, D-bombs,
He-bombs, She-bombs, Flea-bombs, Free-bombs
here a bomb, there a bomb, everywhere a bomb bomb, -- IGCT.
Preacherman says that Armageddon's coming pretty soon
maybe in the morning maybe in the afternoon
says we'll all regret the day we left our moma's womb -- IGCT.
Annihilation, damnation, tribulation, too
punishment, judgement, doom and gloom
what's a little boy like me supposed to do ? -- IGCT.
I keep hearing tiny voices whisper in my ear
"Hey, let's do a rendezvous, we'll take you of there!"
The signal's coming in loud and clear -- IGCT.
Now I'm standing in the cornfield, looking at the sky
just hoping for a spaceship to drop on by
for a close encounter of the third kind -- IGCT.
Well, the sky's turning black and it's sure a erie sight
I'm hypnotized by those blinking lights
it's a UFO on a kidnap flight ! -- IGCT.
Now I'm standing at the window, looking down at planet earth
I'm waving good-bye for all I'm worth
Man from Mars is a fine chauffeur -- IGCT.
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye.
