    Hey, girl, stop what you're doin'!
    Hey, girl, you'll drive me to ruin.
    I don't know what it is I like about you, but I like it a lot.
    Won't let me hold you, Let me feel your lovin' charms.

    Communication Breakdown, It's always the same,
    I'm having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane!

    Hey, babe, I got something I think you ought to know.
    Hey, babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so.
    I wanna hold you in my arms, yeah!
    I'm never gonna let you go, 'Cause I like your charms.

    Communication Breakdown, It's always the same,
    I'm having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane!

                      SOLO

    Communication Breakdown, It's always the same,
    I'm having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane!

    Communication breakdown .... I want you to love me
    I want your love ....
