Twisted
words by Annie Ross, music by Wardell Grey
rec by Joni Mitchell

. . . . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . G9
My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
. . . . . . . . . . . . D9
The way he described it he said I’d be better dead
. . . . G9
Than live   I didn’t listen to his jive
. . D9 . . . . . . . . . . .B7
I knew all along that he was all wrong
. . . . . Gj
And I knew that he thought
Bbj . .Aj . .Abj . . . .D . . . Bm7.E7.A7
I was crazy but I’m not, oh, no

. . . . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . G9
My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
. . . . . . . . . . . . D9
He said I need treatment but I’m not that easily led
. . . G9
He said  I was the type that was most inclined
. . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . . .B7
When out of his sight to be out of my mind
. . . . . . . Gj
And he thought I was nuts
Bbj . . . .Aj . . Abj . . . .D . . Bm7.E7.A7
No more ifs or ands or buts

. . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . .G9
They say as a child I appeared a little bit wild
. . . . . . . . . D9
with all my crazy ideas
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .G9
But I knew what was happening, I knew I  was a genius
D9 . . . . . . B7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Em7
What’s so strange when you know that you’re a wizard at three?
A7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .D . Bm7.E7.A7
I knew that this was meant to be

. . . . . . D9 . . . . . .G9 . . . . . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . .G9
Now I heard little children were supposed to sleep tight
D9 . . . . . . . G9 . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . D7
That’s why I got into the vodka one night
. . . G9
My parents got frantic, didn’t know what to do
. . .D9 . . . . . . . B7 . . . . . . . . . A-
But I saw some crazy scenes before I came to
. . . . . . .Em7
Now do you think I was crazy?
A7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . D.Bm7.E7 . . A7
I may have been only three but I was swingin’

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . .G9
They all laughed at Al Graham Bell
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . D9
They all laughed at Edison and also at Einstein
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .G9
So why should I feel sorry if they just couldn’t understand
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . D9
The idiomatic logic that went on in my head?
F#m7 . . . . Fm7 . . . . . . . .Em7
I had a brain, it was insane,  oh, they used to laugh at me
. . . . A7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . D . . . . . . . . . E
When I refused to ride on all those double-decker buses
. . . . . Em7 . . . . . . . . . . .A7 . . . . . . .D
All because there was no driver at the top

. . . . . . . . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . G9
My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
. . . . . . . . . . . . . D9
But I said, “Dear doctor, I think that it’s you instead
. . . G9
Because I've got a thing that’s unique and new
. . . D9 . . . . . . . . . . . . B7
To prove it I’ll have the last laugh on you
. . . . . . . . Gj . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . {a capella}
‘Cause instead of one head,  I got two
{a capella} . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . D9
And you know two heads are better than one”
