basket case lyrics – warren zevon

my baby is a basket case
a bi-polar mama in leather and lace
face like an angel, she’s a perfect waste
my baby is a basket case

dracula’s daughter, calamity jane
smoke on the water, water on the brain
she’s pretty as a picture and totally crazed
my baby is a basket case

she’s gonna make a madman out of me
she’s gonna make a madman out of me

she’s manic depressive and schizoid too
the friskiest psycho that i ever knew
we’re paranoid lovers lost in sp*ce
my baby is a basket case

bab-bab bab-bab bab-bab basket case
bab-bab bab-bab bab-bab basket case

my baby’s gonna celebrate
i’m being dragged through the nut house gates
got my straight jacket on and i’m taking her place
my baby is a basket case

she finally made a madman out of me
she finally made a madman out of me
my baby made a madman out of me
she finally made a madman out of me

she made a madman, madman out of me
she made a madman, madman out of me
she made a madman, madman out of me
she made a madman, madman out of me
