Basket Case

Eb               Bb
Do you have the time
C                G
To listen to me whine
G#                 Eb                Bb
About nothing and everything all at once
Eb            Bb
I am one of those
C              G
Melodramatic fools
G#                Eb               Bb
Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it

G#           Bb              Eb
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G#           Bb                Eb
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
G#              Bb
It all keeps adding up
Eb             C#    C   (drums come in)
I think I’m cracking up
G#             Bb
Am I just paranoid?
I’m just stoned

Interlude: x2
Eb Bb C Bb

I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it’s lack of sex that’s bringing me down
I went to a whore
He said my life is a bore
And quit my whining ’cause it’s bringing her down

Chorus x1

Interlude: x4
Eb Bb C Bb

G#             Bb
Grasping to control
So you better hold on

Verse x2

Chorus x1

Eb C G# Eb Bb x4
G# Eb Bb (Let ring..)

  1. Eat a third and drink a third and leave the remaining third of your stomach empty. Then, when you get angry, there will be sufficient room for your rage.
