Things That Scare Me (2014 Club Version​)​)

from by Marla Mase

lyrics

There are so many things that scare me
I can’t even begin to count
There are so many things that scare me
I never thought I’d amount
To being
A mother, a sister, a writer, a daughter, a debtor, an actor, a lover

To tell you the truth people, I’m in a state of shock
It’s a miracle given my predilections that I ever left this dock
Cause let me tell you all
when I say, I fall, I mean it, I fall

I’m a schizoid diuretic
Germaphobic diabetic
Borderline depressive
Bipolar repressive
Introverted neurotic
Extroverted psychotic and
Hyperactive narcissist

Don’t you dare
try and diagnose me
Don’t you dare
ry and diagnose me
Don’t you dare try and diagnose me
Cause you’ll never ever catch me

Chorus:
Cause I’m slippery when wet
I got dangerous curves
You better yield when you merge
Next to me
I’m under construction
Men at work all around me
I suggest you take that detour
Cause my pavement is icy
Caution – Speed Bump ahead

There are so many things that scare me
Ever since I was a kid
There are so many things that scare me
And still I haven’t rid
Like electric-shock therapy
Being tortured in a war
The Incredible Mr. Limpet
or having a panic attack on tour
Meetings with lawyers really get my goat, as do journalists with terrorist slits in their throats,
dophins being slaughtered, jelly fish on my hind quarters and suicidal daughters.

Still I have made it here today
to being

A mother, a sister, a writer, a daughter, a debtor, an actor, a lover

To tell you the truth people, I’m in a state of shock
It must have been a slip of my mind

cause
I’m an Impulsive Catatonic, hebreonic, Byronic, hedonistic platonic sardonic histrionic, Teutonic despotic, bubonic Maseonic, Supersonic Bionic 21st Century Fox.


Don’t you dare
try and diagnose me
Don’t you dare
try and diagnose me
Don’t you dare try
and diagnose me

Cause You’ll never ever catch me

Chorus
Cause I’m slippery when wet
I’ve Got dangerous curves
You better yield when you merge
Next to me
I’m under construction
Men at work all around me
I suggest you take that detour
Cause my pavement is icy
Caution – Speed Bump ahead

I ain’t what I seem
So If I appear in your dream
It just might mean
I flew in through your window screen
I’ll invade all your thoughts
Can’t take me to court
Cause I’ll manage to thwart
All the rules that you’re taught
Cause I can’t be caught
But don’t be fraught
With worries about me
Cause I’m just a Party Planner……

I make fun parties (Party People)
Funnnnnn
Fun fun fun funf fun fun
Fun parties people (party people)
Oh yeah
I make so fun parties
Wooo yeah woo
Hey listen it’s about fun people
It really is, it’s all about funnnnnn
so don't worry about the placement of your napkin or if all the colors match
or whether or not you have a sub-zero refrigerator
because it's all about fun
fun fun fun fun fun Fun fun fun fun fun fun funn
Fun Fun
and fun spelled backwards is NUF
I hope I didn't leave my cat in the dryer
