​What Makes Me Tick

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Coal Miner's Daughter (1971).

Gonna have my head examin'
'Cause my mind's in bad shape
The way that you've been actin'
I think that you've gone ape.

The way I let you treat me
It's enough to make me sick
I'm gonna have my head examin'
And find out what makes me tick.

If I had the brains of a dummy
I'd be smart
'Cause there ain't no feelin'
In a poor dummy's heart.

And when it comes to cheatin'
Honey, you know every trick
I'm gonna have my head examin'
And find out what makes me tick.

Gonna have my head examin'
'Cause I know my mind is broke
Tonight I saw you kiss her
You said, "Can't you take a joke?"

Now, I won't be your monkey
You'd better change in quick
I'm gonna have my head examin'
And find out what makes me tick.

If I had the brains of a dummy
I'd be smart
'Cause there ain't no feelin'
In a poor dummy's heart.

And when it comes to cheatin'
Honey, you know every trick
I'm gonna have my head examin'
And find out what makes me tick.

I'm gonna have my head examin'
And find out what makes me tick...
