Chuckie said, “I don’t know what’s goin’ on.
I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.
Been up and down this New York town,
Lookin’ for a break. Just a fair shake of it.
But the people all got concrete in their eyes and their points of view.
The taxis and the mailboxes all want to make love to me ’xactly like you used to do.”

And oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m (ah uh uh) a-losin’ it.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.

Here come a cop, “I heard she left you, son.
But it’s time that you picked up the pieces.
The whole town’s talkin’ about you
Ever since your waitress gave you the deep freeze.
Now, she’s runnin’ with a cab driver who swears he’s the crucified King of Siam.
But Jesus is comin’. So hold on tight. He’s just stalled up around the bend.”

And oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m (ah uh uh) a-losin’ it.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.

You say, “Why don’t you go see a shrink?”
But I don’t need to spend a grand a month
To know that I’m out of my head
’Cause you said you’d be better off dead
Than livin’ with me.

My boss said, “What the hell’s goin’ on?
The whole firm knows that you’re losin’ it.”
I just jumped up on his desk, did a Celtic war dance,
Teach that fool a lesson.
Then, I burned all your lingerie, and I tried stitchin’ it back together again.
And then, this clock started tickin’ in my head, and oh, oh, oh, oh, here I go again.

And oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m (ah uh uh) a-losin’ it.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m (ah uh uh) a-losin’ it.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m (ah uh uh) a-losin’ it.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m down on my knees. I’m (ah uh uh) losin’ it.
