GREEN DAY


Basket Case Lyrics

Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once?
I am one of those melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone, no doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned?

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's a bore
So quit my whining 'cause it's bringing her down

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned?

Grasping to control
So I better hold on

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned?

Wow. I've been thinking that when they say 'Grasping to control' They said 'Must spin to control' so i've been hearing wrong all the time xD

This song basically describes myself. I'm a huge Green Day fan & this song is one of my favorites. I have most of their albums. I need 2 more

When my daughters were teens they listened to this over and over, so I memorized the words. In karaoke I now, at age 64, do a rap version (can't sing) and everyone loves it. Thanks.
