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. . .

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!

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. . .

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!

I cooked your food
I cleaned your house
And this is how you pay me back
For all my kind, unselfish loving deeds?!!
Hah. . .

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
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-haaa!

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!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone begging to another person not to leave them because he/she is being taken away. IDK. Just my thought on the song.

    Yay first Comment

    MemoryJeez, when/where did Stone Sour cover this song? I remember hearing this on the oldie's station all the time when I was growing up! I actually want to hear their version out of morbid curiosity...

    MemoryI found this cover in "Click Here To Exit".
    Seemed to be a DEMO album in which Stone Sour was named as "SuperEgo".

    As you will see below, it has some tracks included on their 2001 DEMO.
    Tracklist is something like this:

    01. Omega
    02. Get Inside (this is an unedited version, guitar solo is quite different)
    03. Kill Everybody
    04. Ending Beginning
    05. The Wicked (seems to be an alternative version with voices and introduction)
    06. Idle Hands
    07. Talk (this is like a break, voices only)
    08. Road Hog
    09. Dead Weight (the first part of this is another song now known as "Rules Of Evidence").
    10. Bother (the same as happened with "Get Inside", unedited even clearer than the final result).
    11. All I Know
    12. Silent Type
    12. The Dance Of The Frog Fish (as I wrote before, this is the Napoleon XIV's cover called "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-haaa!", just a few words changed and it includes some voices on intro and outro).

    General CommentThis is the song which is played every time before Stone Sour starts to play live.
