Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees
And begged you not to leave
Because I'd go berserk?
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...
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
With their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha
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
With their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha

You thought it was a joke
And so you laughed, you laughed
When I have 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

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
With their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha
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 chipping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house
And this is how you pay me back
For all my kind, unselfish, loving deeds?
Ha!
Well you just wait, they'll find you yet
And when they do
They'll put you in the ASPCA
You mangy mutt

And...
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
With their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha
They're coming to take me away, ha ha
They're coming to take me away, ho ho
To the happy home
With trees and flowers and chipping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they're coming to take me away, ha ha

They're coming to take me away...
