She showed up at her psychiatrist's
she blew her nose, and he looked delighted
Her tumours spilled out into her handkerchief
the good doctor lit his pipe and grinned
'Cause everybody knows her paranoia
was solely caused by a transdimensional shift
She files her teeth down for all of her boyfriends
and everybody calls her Mean Old Missus Schmidt

She can't stand romantic melodies
She don't get where she fits in
She just bolts and shudders miserably,
"Mister! Mister! Try again."

Don't linger long by the cemetery
You can't be sure where all those hands have been
Don't let the boys help with that load you're carrying
Gallantry's dead, and what's more it's a sin
Take it as it comes and choke it down
Take it as it comes and choke it down
Take it like a lover and choke it down
Take it as it comes and choke it down

She can't stand romantic melodies
She don't get where she fits in
She just bolts and shudders miserably,
"Mister! Mister! Try again."
