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 alive
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
don't know

My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head
He said I 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 laughed at Edison
And also at Einstein
So why should I be 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 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, I 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.

Bette Midler also does a great version.
I used to sing this as a kid! She may have songs that are prettier or more profound, but this is my personal favorite! Fun Fun Fun!!! :lol: :D :lol: :p

I thought I'd read negative criticisms.. but now I know better. What's wrong with this song? At least... what's so terribly wrong about it? I just don't understand certain attitudes towards music.
SUCKO BARFO

Thanks for playing Twisted. This is my favorite song on the album. This song really showcases Joni\'s great range (at least back when she was younger)
