The Lyrics

I'm smelling thighs of people I see;
Doc says I am completely crazy.
I'm sound (really, I'm sound)
I'm sound (clownin' around)
I'm sound (completely sound).

But the doc's staff comes and pins me down.
This is no laugh-ing matter--I'm sound!

In thigh sticks a syringe, plunged all way--
"Lithium will help keep him at bay!"
It's down--the plunge went down
Went down--all the way down
I'm down--chemically down.

And then the jack-et is wrapped around,
Clasped in the back--it's no dressing gown.

I'm all alone. . .rubber room--no one else;
I can't roam and can't handle myself.
I'm bound (I'm really bound)
I'm bound (bound, jacket-wound)
I'm bound (I'm really wound).

Wrapped in this jack-et--won't come unwound;
"Gown" has me strapped; I can't get unbound.

Don't they know that I'm sound
(I'm really sound)
But they say I'm unsound
(But I am sound)
Clowning around
(I clowned around)
Clowned around; now I'm bound
(I'm really bound)
Sound, bound, wound.

What's it say about me that I thought from the title sub this would be some sort of S&M spin? :-)
Enjoyed, maybe more, what it turned out to be, esp. the jack-et/back-it's couplet.

Psychiatric hospitals are no joke (google "Oregon State Hospital", and you'll read about a leading example of hell on earth), nor are they truly funny despite all the jokes and novelty songs about them, but this parody sure is funny. John Barry, you are "bound" to get 5s for your efforts, but you certainly won't get gagged.
