The Lyrics

If you have problems with everyday life
And they're driving you up a brick wall
And you cannot avoid fighting with your wife
After she bought a dress from the mall
You have a temper, and it will destroy you
Therapy should be, high on your list
And if you think you're right but your act was wrong
Please go see a psychiatrist

The lifestyle that you're living is too fast paced
You're living the American lie
And the neighbor next door has a white picket fence
And the price he's paid for it's too high
So today you think back childhood memories
See pressure and abuse through the mist
Obsessive-compulsive behavior it can kill so
Please go see a psychiatrist

If you had just an hour to talk to a medical professional
Would you tell her your emotions are suppressed?
All because of a trauma.
Now get it all out 'Cause you will be just fine,
You will no longer act so pissed
And the things that disturbed you were repressed memories
Keep seeing a psychiatrist

(instrumental)

Get your emotions out in the open so you don't have to use a gun
Isn't mental health as important as physical?
Its superseded Freud, and its role in modern health is hard to avoid
And your psyche is something that no one destroys
If it's damaged here's some good advice I insist
Please go see a psychiatrist

I didn't think that many besides me knew this song. :) Good work!

Meriadoc, while the patient is snoozing, it would be a great opportunity to put Freud's dream analysis theory into practice.

Great job on the parody! I read your parody, now how bout you read mine? "Come On Over" to the Shania Twain section and "Check It Out"

Tim, this one seems a lot better paced than "Dear Mister Idiot". I'd have to listen to the OS to be sure but from my memory the 2nd verse seems very well aligned to the OS version...and also does a good job of maintaining and advancing your story. It's pretty late now so I won't be able to check the OS tonight...maybe after work tomorrow night...I like this one.
