They’re Coming To Take Me Away:Napoleon XIV.
#3 in 1966.

(Recorded by Jerry Samuels (Napoleon)..a recording
 engineer at Associated Recording Studios in New York,
 N.Y. He used a VFO (variable pitch oscillator to
 vary his voice. There was no music in the original
 but my band played it in key of G because we didn't have a
 VFO.)PS: Some radio stations refused to play it for fear of
      offending mental health organizations. Personally, we
      thought it was hilarious (at the time) and got many 
      requests to play it. The flip side is the song played 
      backwards.)
 
#1. G C D

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and 

begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?? Well!!!!  

You left me anyhow, and then the days got worse and worse and 

now you see I've gone completely out of my mind...and..

CHORUS:

They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!!

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha..

to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time,

and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean 

white coats, and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

#2. 

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed, when 

I had said that losing you would make me flip my lid. Right???

You know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed, you 

laughed and laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm 

utterly mad..and..

CHORUS:

They're coming to take me away, ha-ha,

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha,

to the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds,

and basket weavers who sit and smile, and twiddle their thumbs 

and toes, and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

#3.
I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you

pay me back, for all my kind unselfish loving deeds. Huh??

Well, you just wait, they'll find you yet, and when they do 

they'll put you in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!!! and...

 
CHORUS:
 
They're coming to take me away, ha-ha.

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha,

to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time,

and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean

white coats, and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds,

and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs

and toes, and they're coming to take me away, ha-haa!!!

To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time..

OUTRO:

They're coming to take me away, ha-ha.

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha,

to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time,

and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean

white coats..(Fade.)


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.

Wild song, we always loved it as well. But then we were kids then and loved anything offbeat. Thanks for the lyrics!
