Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Loco To Stay Sane Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Doctor, Doctor, can you cure me?
A little pill, a little something to assure me
I’m gonna feel better when I walk outside your door
(He said) Son, son, son, I don’ know what you’re needin’
Your body is fine, it’s your soul that’s bleedin’
I got the same disease, ain’t nobody yet found the cure
But if you find it, bottle it. You’ll be a rich man for sure

[Chorus]
This ain’t no joke (oh no!)
You gotta know how to bend
If you don’t wanna get broke (oh no!)
Keep your piece in the Big Bad Game
You know you gotta go a little loco
To stay sane

[Verse 2]
General, General, I gotta ask it:
With my new uniform, do I get a casket
And a one-way ticket, or do you plan to bring me back home?
(He said) Son, son, son, ‘t’s a mighty good question
Ain’t got your answer, just a suggestion:
Join up, find out, hope you ain’t accident prone
Cause even in the very best company, boy, we’re always alone

[Chorus]
This ain’t no joke (oh no!)
You gotta know how to bend
If you don’t wanna get broke (oh no!)
Keep your piece in the Big Bad Game
You know you gotta go a little loco
To stay sane

[Bridge]
The more we dig in, the deeper the hole
We’re comin’ off the rails when we get on a roll
Hangman ‘s tyin’ a noose on the line
So keep a couple screws loose, ‘n you’ll be fine

[Verse 3]
Fortune teller lady, what do you see?
Are there swerves, are there curves
In the road up ahead of me?
Will I die rich or poor, lose my mind
Or come to some sour end?
(She said) Son, son, son, step into my booth
You look like a nice young man, let me tell you the truth
It’s a secret, now
Don’t tell any of your friends
But I ain’t never seen the end of no story
‘cause no story ever ends

[Chorus]
This ain’t no joke (oh no!)
You gotta know how to bend
If you don’t wanna get broke (oh no!)
Keep your piece in the Big Bad Game
You know you gotta go a little loco
To stay sane

[Chorus]
This ain’t no joke (oh no!)
You gotta know how to bend
If you don’t wanna get broke (oh no!)
Keep your piece in the Big Bad Game
You know you gotta go a little loco
To stay sane
