I'm on the verge of a nervous collapse
I don't know what to do

Working 49 hours a week
To bring some money home to you

Can't stand this job
I'm pushing buttons baby

They work my fingers to the bone
And call me lazy

And some madman has the atom bomb
That's what I heard on the news

I got to make something out of my life
It'll be over soon

Nuclear war's gonna ruin my chances baby
I can't take it anymore
I'm going crazy
If I don't make it in time
Would you still love me so

Everybody's breathing down my neck
I'm really losing my cool

You keep me up all night
I'm sleeping in the other room

You toss and turn
Baby you make me dizzy

I want to make you feel alright
But it ain't easy

And some doctor's talking on TV
Who tries to tell us what to do

How can I make it through the end of the world if I'm not with you

Nuclear war's gonna ruin my chances baby
I can't take it anymore
I'm going crazy
If I don't make it in time
Would you still love me so

Nuclear war's gonna ruin my chances baby
I can't take it anymore
I'm going crazy
Come here and give me a kiss
before the big one explodes

I'm gonna make some real money
You won't have to work at the department store
We'll find a place
We won't have to live in this apartment anymore

I'm coming up with a plan
It's long overdue

Play my guitar and sing a song or two
About you

Get on the phone
I got connections baby

I got a demo and I know it might be crazy

But if they can use the atom bomb
what have I go to lose?

Nuclear war's gonna ruin my chances baby
I can't take it anymore
I'm going crazy
If I don't make it in time
Would you still love me so

Nuclear war's gonna ruin my chances baby
I can't take it anymore
I'm going crazy
Come here and give me a kiss
Before the big one explodes
