19th Nervous Breakdown
You're the kind of person you meet at certain
Dismal, dull affairs
Center of a crowd, talking much too loud
Running up and down the stairs

Well, it seems to me that you have seen
Too much in too few years
And though you've tried, you just can't hide
Your eyes are edged with tears

You better stop and look around
Here it comes, here it comes
Here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown

When you were a child, you were treated kind
But you were never brought up right
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys
But still you cried all night

Your mother who neglected you
Owes a million dollars tax
And your father's still perfecting ways
Of making sealing wax

You better stop and look around
Here it comes, here it comes
Here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown

Oh, who's to blame?
That girl's just insane
Well, nothing I do don't seem to work
It only seems to make matters worse, oh please

You were still in school when you had that fool
Who really messed your mind
And after that you turned your back
On treating people kind

On our first trip, I tried so hard
To rearrange your mind
But after a while, I realized
You were disarranging mine

You better stop and look around
Here it comes, here it comes
Here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown

Oh, who's to blame?
That girl's just insane
Well, nothing I do don't seem to work
It only seems to make matters worse, oh please

When you were a child, you were treated kind
But you were never brought up right
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys
And still you cried all night

Your mother who neglected you
Owes a million dollars tax
And your father's still perfecting ways
Of making sealing wax

You better stop and look around
Here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
