  • Song Lyrics:
    Can Mary fry some fish, mama
    I'm as hungry as can be
    Oh lord, how I wish, mama
    You could stop the baby cryin'
    'Cause my head is killing me

    I saw my ex again last night mama
    She was at the dance at Miller's store
    She was with that Jackie White mama
    I killed them both
    And they're buried under Jacob's sycamore

    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    I didn't mean to break your cup
    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    You better let 'em lock me up

    Oh, don't hand me Johnny's pup mama
    As I might squeeze him too tight
    I'm havin' crazy dreams again mama
    So let me tell you 'bout last night
    I woke up in Johnny's room mama
    Standing right there by his bed
    With my hands around his throat mama
    Wishing both of us were dead

    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    I just killed Johnny's pup
    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    You'd better let 'em lock me up

    Oh you recall that little girl mama
    I believe her name was Betty Clark
    Oh don't tell me that she's dead mama
    'Cause I just saw her in the park
    We were sitting on a bench mama
    Thinking of a game to play
    Seems I was holding a wrench mama
    Then my mind just walked away

    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    I didn't mean to break your cup
    You think I'm psycho don't you mama
    Mama why don't you get up?

    As a youngster in 1979, this song used to really freak me out. It's about a guy who kills his neighors, then confesses to his mother ("Ya think I'm psycho, don't ya, momma? You'd better let 'em lock me up.") He even sings about killing a little girl and burying her under a tree or something like that. Finally, the song infers that he even snuffed his mom. Creepy.
