The tiny pill I take Is round It puts me down It makes me what I ain’t Complaints Without a frown I may forget a day Or two When I’m with you But really I can’t say I say I say Pick me up Pick me up And anytime I’m sad It’s gone And all along I want to feel alright And do But not for long And anytime I think I change And shrink away But really I can’t say I say I say Pick me up Pick me up Pick me up Pick me up I’m so low I’m so low I’m so low I’m so low I’m so low I’m so low I’m so low To be is up to me You see I want to leave And all I have to do Is try But actually I like to change my mind And do It all the time But really I can’t say I say I say I say I say

Left his home At the age of seven He never made it Through the first day of school Left his home At the age of seven He never made it Through the first day of school Could have been A wise clock-counting man But now he's a Counter-clockwise man He’s a boy With a cerebellum He’s the kid with The cool chemicals Another boy With a cerebellum Just a kid with Some cool chemicals Now he's rocking backwards With the band Cause he's a Counter-clockwise man Hits the radio to eleven When he's listening To top rock & roll Hits the radio to eleven He’s always listening To top rock & roll Keeping time When no one Understands Cause he's a Counter-clockwise man Should have been a Wise clock-counting man But now he's a Counter-clockwise man

She hates the color orange And always has And always has She eats her country porridge From the cardboard bag From the cardboard bag I never, never knew Someone could have so much Hatred of the color orange Hatred of the color orange She waits inside at home Til the sun come down Til the sun come down She don’t mind her daytime cold Or the big black clouds Or the big black clouds I never understood Somebody really could have a Hatred of the color orange Hatred of the color orange I never understood How anybody could have a Hatred of the color orange Hatred of the color orange Hatred of the color orange

And I want you And I need you And I’d take you To the day If I liked you I could try to Ask the sky who Took the rays Don’t let the sun set on you here And I'm tired Sipping cider While the fire Keeps me warm What to cry for What to die for When that knock Is on your door Don’t let the sun set on you here Don’t’ let the sun set on you here If they've come to Carry bad news Singing sad tunes From the state I would save you From the blame you've Always wanted To escape Don’t let the sun set on you here Don’t let the sun set on you here Don’t let the sun set on you here Don’t let the sun set on you here

She's been working hard Hanging off my arm She’s been working Working like a charm She's been looking good Every chance she could She’s been working Working like she should She's been saying things I don't know what she means She's been working Working like a dream
