Lesley Gore – Paranoia


Paranoia’s just the loose side of tight
Behind the plot to do you in
When you hear a siren screaming in the dead of night
Are you sure your mail’s been opened before
Paranoia, you got paranoia
Hey, don’t despair

Do you feel that red light waited for you
You got company there
Do their answers leave you wondering why
Paranoia, you got paranoia
Paranoia’s gonna save your life someday

[Chorus]
You got company there
Hang on to all the crazy things you do and say

Paranoia, you got paranoia
And they try to strip your madness away
[Chorus]
Is the butcher poisoning your pork chops
When at last they really come to get you
Is the dude behind the desk, behind the smiling skin
Paranoia, you got paranoia
Hey, don’t despair

Paranoia, you got paranoia

Paranoia’s just the left side of right

[Chorus]
You got company there
Paranoia’s just the black side of white
Hey, don’t despair
Are they coming, ’cause they know you’re getting high
Paranoia, you got paranoia
