They're Coming to Take Me Away by Jerry Samuels

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berzerk?
Well, you left me anyhow and 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 he he 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 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 he he 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
They're coming to take me away ha ha...
I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you paid 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 he he ha ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see those nice men in their clean white coats
They're coming to take me away 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
They're coming to take me away Ha Ha Ha
Your home the one the bank foreclosed, You cried to me Monogamy is the way we both must live or you'll feel hurt.
But, I see, I see there's someone new, your anxious poly-pure-bred coat was even gone at our place while I paid the rent, thanks!
And They're coming to take me away Ha Ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the loony bin with all you can eat perscription drugs like thorizine, and lithium, and electric shock and insulin
They're coming to take me away Ha Ha

THIS DUDE NEEDED TO BE LEFT

Well when your sanity is contingent on another person giving you love and approval then eventually the men in what coats will indeed come for you. The men in costs are of course a metaphore for the absolute madness you experience when you feel to pain of separation and the pangs of conditional love. It's the type of love we all are taught to persue. I think this is a Dr. Demento song but it's actually pretty profound. I also hated listening to it because it is spastic and has a lame melody.

Well. the chick that kicked him to the curb obviously was correct in doing so since he was like a simpering puppy begging for attention. I have always hated songs where the person is like "hey look at me,. Look at how you breaking up with me ruined my life". Because there is one thing I learned early in my dating exploits its that if someone dumps you they do not give a shit about how you feel about it. That's why they broke up with you. I learned it is best to pretend you don't give a shit. That drives them crazy. Then they are begging to be with you again. But as soon as you show you care at all FFFFTTTT its back to the curb. All you young'ins that follow this blog take note.
