==========

 G               D        Em          Bm
Do you have the time to listen to me whine
  C                  G               D
About nothing and everything all at once
G             D
I am one of those
   Em          Bm
Melodramatic fools
   C             G
Neurotic to the bone

No doubt about it

   C         D                G
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
   C         D                    G
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
    C               D
It all keeps adding up
    G         F      Em
I think I'm cracking up

Am I just paranoid?

=========
   G         D
I went to a shrink
     Em        Bm
To analyze my dreams
     C                 G                    D
She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me__ down
   G         D
I went to a whore
    Em               Bm
He said my life's a bore
     C                G                    D 
And quit my whining cause it's bringing her__ down
--------------------------


-------------------------
[Chorus]
======
   C         D                G
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
   C         D                    G
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
    C               D
It all keeps adding up
    G         F      E(m)
I think I'm cracking up
   C           D
Am I just paranoid?

Ee Ya ya ya.
