[Intro]
A  A/E

A  A/E
F7 F7 E7
F7 F7 E7
F7 E7 F7 E7
F7 E7

[Verse 1]
A                         F
I'd like to be a princess on a throne
Bm7b5                   C#
To have a country I can call my own
N.C.
And a king
N.C.
Who's lusty and requires a fling
N.C.
With a female thing

[Post-verse 1]
C#m
Great, men will be men
      D#      G#   C#m
Let me turn on the gas
E/G#          A/E
I caught them in the den with
N.C.
Marvin grabbing Whizzer's ass

[Verse 2]
A                               F
Oh sure, I'm sure, he's sure he did his best
Bm7b5                      C#7
I mean he meant to be what he was not
F#m           F#m/E                B7
The things he was are things which I forgot
N.C.
He's a queen
N.C.
I'm a queen
N.C.
Where is my crown?

[Chorus 1]
             A
I'm breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
           D
My life is shitty
                         E7
And my kid seems like an idiot to me
              A
I mean that's sick
            A7
I mean he's great
            F#
It's me who is the matter
F#/G#
Talking madder
F#/A             F#/A#   Bm7
Than the maddest hatter

[Post-chorus 1]
   E        A
If I repeat one more word
  D          C#7     F#m
I swear I'll lose my brain
  C#m                    B
Oh, what else should I explain?
N.C.
Oh, yes it's true
N.C.
I can cry on cue
N.C.
But so can you

[Chorus 2]
             A
I'm breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
D       Dm7
Down, down
            A         A/G# F#m    F#m/E
You ask me "Is it fun to cry over nothing?"
N.C.
It is, I'm breaking down

[Instrumental]
A  A/E
F7 F7 E7
F7 F7 E7
F7 E7

[Verse 3]
A                         F
Now let's consider what I might do next
Bm7b5                   C#
I hate admitting I've become perplexed
N.C.
I'm bereaved
N.C.
I've cried, I've shook, I've yelled, I've heaved
N.C.
I have been deceived

[Post-verse 2]
C#m
As enemies go
       D#    G#   C#m
Whizzer is not so bad
E/G#           A/E
It's just he's so damn happy
N.C.
That it makes me so damn mad

[Verse 4]
A                        F
I want to hate him but I really can't
Bm7b5                          C#7
It's like a nightmare how this all proceeds
F#m                          B7
I hope that Whizzer don't fulfill his needs
N.C.
Don't is wrong
N.C.
Sing along
N.C.
What was the noun?

[Chorus 3]
             A
I'm breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
            D
I'll soon redecorate these stalls
              E7
I'd like some padding on the walls
         A
And also pills
        A7
I wanna sleep
                F#
Sure, things'll probably worsen
F#/G#             F#/A             F#/A#  Bm7
But it's not like I'm some healthy person

[Post-chorus 2]
     E            A
I've rethought my talks with Marv
    D        C#7   F#m
And one fact does emerge
C#m                B
I think I like his shrink
N.C.
So that is why I might turn to drink
N.C.
I'm on the brink

[Chorus 4]
            A
Of breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
D       Dm7
Down, down
       A           A/G# F#m       F#m/E
I only want to love a man who can love me...
N.C.
Or like me...
N.C.
Or help me...
N.C.
Help me!

[Bridge]
A                D
Marvin was never mine
D/C#                        D/B           D/E
He took his meetings in the boys' latrine
              E
I used to cry
                  D/E
He'd make a scene
           E7
I'd rather die
E7
Than dry-clean
E7
Marvin's wedding gown

[Chorus 5]
             A
I'm breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
          D
It's so upsetting when you've found
               E7
That what's rectangular is round
          A
I mean it stinks
            A7
I mean he's queer
            F#
And me, I'm just a freak
    F#/G#          F#/A        F#/A#  Bm7
Who needs it maybe every other week

[Post-chorus 3]
     E             A
I've rethought the fun we've had
    D        C#7 F#m
And one fact to emerge:
C#m
I've played the foolish clown
N.C.
The almost virgin who sings this dirge
N.C.
Is on the verge

[Outro]
            A
Of breaking down
             A7
I'm breaking down
D       Dm7
Down, down
         A                    A/G# F#m       F#m/E  A  A7/G  D/F#  Dm(maj7)/F
The only thing that's breaking up is my family
         A                    A/G# F#m       F#m/E
The only thing that's breaking up is my family
      B7             A D7/F# Dm7/F A
But me, I'm breaking down
