The Lyrics

Not politically correct, but "The Mentally ill Person Sleeps Tonight" doesn't have that ring to it.
(Oh, We're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko)
(We're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko)

In the long halls with soft padded walls
The looney sleeps tonight
Medication and deep sedation
The looney sleeps tonight

Institutions for your delusions
The looney sleeps tonight
Your illusions cause you confusion
The looney sleeps tonight

Hush my darling take your injection
The looney sleeps tonight
This is only for your protection
The looney sleeps tonight

(Oh, We're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko)
(We're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko, we're all wacko)

Take 555 milligrams of Haldol, Paxil, Thorazine, and Prozac, and call Doctor Phil in the morning.

Short and sweet, unlike a frontal lobotomy. Nice work! 5-4-4
