Twisted - Annie Ross, Wardell Grey

    My analyst told me
    That I was right out of my head
    The way he described it
    He said I'd be better dead than live
    I didn't listen to his jive
    I knew all along
    That he was all wrong
    And I knew that he thought
    I was crazy but I'm not
    Oh no

    My analyst told me
    That I was right out of my head
    He said I'd need treatment
    But I'm not that easily led
    He said I was the type
    That was most inclined
    When out of his sight
    To be out of my mind
    And he thought I was nuts
    No more ifs or ands or buts

    They say as a child
    I appeared a little bit wild
    With all my crazy ideas
    But I knew what was happening
    I knew I was a genius...
    What's so strange when you know
    That you're a wizard at three
    I knew that this was meant to be

    Now I heard little children
    Were supposed to sleep tight
    That's why I got into the vodka one night
    My parents got frantic
    Didn't know what to do
    But I saw some crazy scenes
    Before I came to
    Now do you think I was crazy
    I may have been only three
    But I was swinging

    They all laugh at angry young men
    They all laugh at Edison
    And also at Einstein
    So why should I feel sorry
    If they just couldn't understand
    The idiomatic logic
    That went on in my head
    I had a brain
    It was insane
    Oh they used to laugh at me
    When I refused to ride
    On all those double decker buses
    All because there was no driver on the top

    My analyst told me
    That I was right out of my head
    But I said dear doctor
    I think that it's you instead
    Because I have got a thing
    That's unique and new
    To prove it I'll have
    The last laugh on you
    'Cause instead of one head
    I got two
    And you know two heads are better than one.
