Everybody's Boppin!

My analyst told me (what) that I was right out of my head the way he described it (how) he said I'd be better dead than live I didn't listen to his jive I knew all along he was all wrong and I knew that he thought (what) I was crazy but I'm not oh no oh no oh no

My analyst told me (what) that I was right out of my head he said I'd need treatment (yeah) but I'm not that easily led he said I was the type that was most inclined when out of his sight to be out of my mind and he thought I was nuts (nuts) no more ifs or ands or buts oh no oh no oh no

They say as a child I appeared a little bit wild with all my crazy ideas but I knew what was happening I knew I was a genius what's so strange when you know that you're a wizard at three I knew that this was meant to be

But I heard little children were supposed to sleep tight that's why i drank a fifth of vodka one night my parents got frantic didn't know what to do but I saw some crazy scenes before I came to now do you think I was crazy I may have been only three but I was swinging

They all laughed at A. Graham Bell they all laughed at Edison and also at Einstein so why should I feel sorry if they just couldn't understand the reasoning and the logic that went on in my head I had a brain it was insane oh but they loved to laugh at me when I refused to ride on all those double decker buses all because there was no driver on the top (no driver on the top she's twisted what's the matter with her)

My analyst told me (what) that I was right out of my head the way he described it (how) he said I'd be better dead than live I didn't listen to his jive I knew all along he was all wrong and I knew that he thought (what) I was crazy but I'm not oh no oh no oh no

My analyst told me (what) that I was right out of my head but I said dear doctor (yeah) I think that it's you instead 'cause I have got a thing that's unique and new it proves that I'll have the last laugh on you 'cause instead of one head I got two and you know two heads are better than one

Note...

I had trouble figuring out one line in Twisted: the reasoning and the logic that went on in my head. A Web search revealed at least three versions: the idiomatic logic, the litany and the logic, and the reasoning and the logic. That last sounds right to me. (Anyway, it did several years ago when I created this page— now I'm not so sure. I received an email in October 2005 with several corrections for this page (Thanks, Erin!), including the idiomatic logic— and now I keep hearing the litany and the logic!)
