Nervous breakdown
Roccuzzo - 1958

I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.
A mental shakedown.
See my hands how they shiver.
See my knees how they quiver.
My whole body’s in a jitter.
I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.

Oh, well, I went to see a doctor just the other day.
I’m about to tell you what the man had to say.
Well, he says, Eddie boy you just gotta slow down.
You can’t keep a-traipsin’ all over town.
I have to give you a physical check.
I’ve come to the conclusion you’re a total wreck.

I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.
A mental shakedown.
See my hands how they shiver.
See my knees how they quiver.
My whole body’s in a jitter.
I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.

I made up my mind, I better change my way.
My shattered moods have seen a better day.
Well, no more girls for a week or two.
No more running ’round with the usual crew.
No more movies or a stayin’ out late.
My baby has to find herself another date.

I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.
A mental shakedown.
See my hands how they shiver.
See my knees how they quiver.
My whole body’s in a jitter.
I’m a-havin’ a nervous breakdown.
