"Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment" as written by and Thomas/cummings Erdelyi....
I was feeling sick, losing my mind
Heard about these treatments by a good friend of mine
He was always happy, smile on his face
He said he had a great time at the place

Peace and love is here to stay and now I can wake up and face the day
Happy-happy-happy all the time, shock treatment, I'm doing fine

Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
I wanna-wanna shock treatment

I was feeling sick, losing my mind
Heard about these treatments by a good friend of mine
He was always happy, smile on his face
He said he had a great time at the place

Peace and love is here to stay and now I can wake up and face the day
Happy-happy-happy all the time, shock treatment, I'm doing fine

Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
Gimme-gimme shock treatment
I wanna-wanna shock treatment

    General Commentif you like punk, how can you not stand the ramones. that is like loving football and not liking the overrated Super Bowl. Overrated? it took them a long time to get big. it doesn't matter i'm sure the ramones could give a rats ass if you like them pictures.in.words. that's why they rock

    General CommentIn terms of music, I think the Ramones are slightly overrated. In terms of influence they definately are not. They didn't start punk, but they made it big. Although their music was great, there were better punk bands.

    General Commentramones are god. I can see where youre comming from saying they arent that good but thats the whole glory to it. theyre so "not good" that it made them so good and revolutionary. i mean they were like amongst the best punk bands and yet their songs were so simple.

    am i making any sense at all??

    General CommentRamones are, besides Sex Pistols and The Clash, the most important punk rock band in the world and have inspired so many other bands. They are great.

    General Commentramones started punk, but they lost their way in trying to make money. i think the real problem is the american dream, and that they focused too hard on north america, where punk can't really take off - there is too much hope. they stayed around way past their welcome, trying to succeed. that's why the brits succeeded so much (and why they are so popular in south america) - because if you were born in the slums, odds-on are that you were going to die there. whereas american you always hear stories of the poor bloke getting the football scholarship etc. people in american can't truly understand punk - you have to be british. and who cares what they music is like? punk isn't about that.

    and what the hell is the song about?
