Lyrics
I was talking
When I should have been listening
I didn't hear a word that anyone said
It must not have been so very important
'Cause I was concerned about instead

So what's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?
What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?

What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?
What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?

I was talking
When I should have been listening
I didn't hear a word that anyone said
It must not have been so very important
'Cause I was concerned about instead

What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?
What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?

What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?
What's going on (what's going on?) going on
Inside my head?

What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?
What's going on, what's going on
What's going on inside my head?

What's going on (what's going on?) what's going on?
What's going on?
