Bonkers  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
     
      I know that I'm bonkers  
      Stupidity conquers   
      Forgive me I know not what I do  
      The cunning behaviour  
      Takes up every acre  
      Of emotional cage in the zoo  

      You know how it goes  
      The volcano blows  
      Eruptions hold the duvet down  
      The words on the lips  
      The sticking out ribs  
      As I try to push my weight around  

      I'm sorry please witness  
      This act of forgiveness  
      Itís all I can do for her to see  
      That I was the sad case  
      A mouse in the rat race  
      Wonít somebody pass me the cheese  

      The size of her breasts   
      Like woodpeckers nests  
      Would comfort me on winter nights  
      The brains in my pants  
      Create milli amps  
      Of pleasure with seconds of delight  

      I'm bonkers believe me  
      A Federico Fellini  
      I'm swinging on the windmills of my mind  
      Where I have been ground down  
      I'm still walking down town  
      I'm leaving all this madness behind  

      Laid back on the couch  
      With me the old slouch  
      For an Oscar on the silent screen  
      There's no time to waste  
      As I fill my fat face  
      With a  pizza slice and custard cream  

      I'm sorry I hurt you  
      I'm bonkers believe me


  • Chords
  • FROM THE ALBUM: Domino.
  • Frederick Fellini: Federico Fellini (1920-1993) was an Italian filmmaker, the director of such world cinema classics as La Strada, Nights of Cabiria, La Dolce Vita, and 8 1/2. His is one of the most unique visions in film history, an inimitable, strange point of view populated by a variety of grotesques. The word felliniesque is recognized by most major dictionaries as describing this inimitable, off-kilter imagination.
  • Windmills of my mind: "The Windmills of Your Mind", an Oscar-winning song by Michel Legrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman, from the film The Thomas Crown Affair (1968).
