Basket Case

Words & Music:

Billy Joe Armstrong (Green Day)

D               A       B            F#

Do you have the time to listen to me whine

G                   D               A

About nothing and everything all at once?

D           A         B         F#

I am one of those, melodramatic fools,

   G            D                   A

Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it.



G           A               D

Sometimes I give myself the creeps.

G             A                   D

Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.

G            A           D          C        B

It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up

G         A                  D

Am I just paranoid? I'm just stoned.



D   A   B   A  [2x]


I went to a shrink to analyze my dreams.

She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down.

I went to a whore, she said my life's a bore.

And quit my whining cause it's bringing her down.
