You've got to pick up the pieces C'mon, sort your trash
You better pull yourself back together Maybe you've got too much cash
Better call, call the law When you gonna turn yourself in? Yeah
You're a politician Don't become one of Hitler's children

Bonzo goes to bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

Shouldn't wish you happiness, wish her the very best Fifty thousand dollar dress
Shaking hands with your highness See through you like cellophane
You watch the world complain, but you do it anyway Who am I, am I to say

Bonzo goes to bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

If there's one thing that makes me sick It's when someone tries to hide behind politics
I wish that time could go by fast Somehow they manage to make it last

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

My brain is hanging upside down I need something to slow me down

    General Comment:It wasn't actually Dee Dee's choice. Johnny forced Dee Dee to change the name for the album, or it wouldn't go on (due to Johnny's Right-Wing, Pro-Reagan beliefs).

    General Comment:Bonzo is supposed to be Ronald Regan (if I'm not mistaken) and his trip to Germany.

    General Comment:Reagan took a lot of flack for that trip, since he participated in a memorial at a cemetery which held quite a lot of dead Nazis. Dee Dee later weakened his dislike of Ronnie and changed the title to "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down."

    General Comment:This song is about Ronald Reagan\'s controversial trip to a nazi cemetary in Bitburg, Germany. Also, \"Bonzo\" is the name of a monkey that appeared in a movie with Reagan

    General Comment:As said before it's about Reagans controversial trip Germany to be a part of a memorial service that paid respect to some fallen Nazi soldiers... Johnny hated the idea of the song cos he was strictly right wing

    General Comment:This song has the BEST song lyrics, I remember listening to them when I was younger and it making me want to kick those facious, controlling authoritarian figures right in the face! Not that I actualy did... but one can dream.
