The Lyrics

Lithium unbalanced up or down,
You might be Mister Hyde, quite snide.
Lithium unbalanced up or down,
Might see the Jekyll side.
'Cause the point of this drug--
To get bipolar thoughts under control good,
So you won't go on a shootin' blast
In your neighborhood.

To keep him at peace, his doctors handed
Him prescription planned to ban-
Ish all of those pesky impulses
That made him a madman.
'Cause the point of this drug--
To get bipolar thoughts under control good
You don't have to shoot it. . .comes in tab
That gets in your blood.

Many a man has tried this out
In lieu of old Nembutal.
The man who's got Lithium balanced,
He's got Lithium balanced,
He's the sedatest of them all.

This drug for a girl can help stave off
Behavior that's schizo. Stay on
It once you've become peaceful;
If you stop, you might get PO'd.
'Cause the point of this drug--
To get bipolar thoughts under control good
So you won't mow folks down with a gat
In your neighborhood.

Not alone, quite crazed, thinking two ways,
One day he saw the light. That a white
And button-like pill could help
Get his bifurcated mind right.
Stem the foment of a whirling mind full blown,
Doing dervish-like turns.
When two minds are chemically severed,
Only one returns.

The ringing in the head's now out,
Under a Lithium pall.
The man who's got Lithium balanced
He's got Lithium balanced
He's the sedatest of them all.

The points totalled five is the only score that John Barry understood. When it comes to bringing lots of laughs... he is mighty good.
