I think I'm going mad
And I think I'm going mad
Think I'm going mad
Think I'm going mad

Life goes by so fast
Time whirls by so fast
You drink my wine and soul
All the women come and go

Think I'm going mad

Think I'm going mad

Think I'm going crazy

All the highs and lows don't mean a thing to me
Don't give a damn

Think I'm going mad

Think I'm going mad


Every season that I pass
Think will be my last
I know my mind's afloat
Sometimes I feel so young and sometimes I feel so old

I think I'm going mad

I think I'm going mad
I think I'm going mad
I think I'm going ma... crazy

Think I'm going crazy

All the highs and lows don't mean a thing to me
Don't give a damn


Yeah, you want to see, you want to see all the kids all laugh
And they're thinking, they say that fool is crazy
They say that, they say that guy is insane
And I think, and I - and I think I'm going crazy
And I think, I think I'm going mad

And I think, and I think I'm going mad
Yeah, think I'm going crazy
Think, think I'm going crazy


All the highs and lows don't mean a thing to me
Don't give a damn


You ought to see my shaking hands

You ought to see my shaking hands

I think I've been drinking (...) cup of coffee
I think I've lost my head
I think I should be sacrificed
Think I should be put away
Save your...
And I think, and I think I'm going mad

And I think I’m going mad
Ah, and I think I’m going mad
Think I'm going...
Think I'm going crazy
Think this world's insane
Think this world's insane
Think...
