My baby is a basket case
Face like an angel--she's a perfect waste

Smoke on the water, water on the brain
My baby is a basket case
She's gonna make a madman outta me

The friskiest psycho that I ever knew
My baby is a basket case
My baby's gonna celebrate
Got my straitjacket on and I'm taking her place

She finally made a madman outta me
She finally made a madman outta me
