Short Trip to Slightly Mad
By Mike Stevens
Based on the Queen song "I'm Going Slightly Mad"
I need to take a trip by train,
I really need a break from feeling slightly insane
Or maybe it should be by boat
But if I don’t get away, that’s all she wrote!
I’d take my car, but it’s missing one wheel,
But I seem to be a little short on the money deal
Right now, I couldn’t even get shipwrecked, for,
If the trip’s by boat, I’d be one wave short!
But whichever way I choose, I hope there’s a doctor on board,
For there’s a voice in my head that roars and roars
Seems lately, I’ve been feeling sick
Yes, a vacation should do the trick
And, I’m coming down with a fever,
I’ve been misdiagnosed, it’s really the deceiver
For the doctors, they can’t figure it out
But that I’m losing it, there is NO doubt!
Lately, when I look in the mirror,
I see a banana tree; oh, dear
Its image is staring back at me
So as you can plainly see,
I really need a vacation!
I need to get away from ‘Insanity Nation”
I thought I’d brew up some nice sanity tea,
But the damn kettle boiled over, and got crazy, all over me!
I think I’ll pass the time on the trip playing solitaire,
But I’m missing one card that I can’t find anywhere
I just hope that on the short trip to slightly mad,
I don’t have the worst trip I’ve ever had!
Feel like I’m knitting with only one needle
Sweater keeps unraveling so fast, looking kind of feeble
So, you see my dear, I really need to get away,
Before my grip on reality continues to fade!
