The Ballad Of Sigmund Freud

Harry Belafonte

The Ballad of Sigmund Freud
Written and performed by the Chad Mitchell Trio

Well, it started in Vienna not so many years ago

When not enough folks were getting sick

A starving young physician tried to better his position

By discovering what made his patients tick

He forgot about sterosis and invented the psychosis

And a hundred ways that sex could be enjoyed

He adopted as his credo "down repression of libido!"

And that was the start of Doctor Sigmund Freud

Well, Doctor Freud, oh Doctor Freud

How we wish you had been differently employed

But the set of circumstances

Still enhances the finances

of the followers of Doctor Sigmund Freud

Well, he analyzed the dreams of the teens and libertines

Substituted monologue for pills

He drew crowds just like Will Sadler

When along came Jung and Adler

And they said by God, there's gold in them darn' ills!

They encountered no resistance

When they served as Freud's assistants

As with ego and with id they deftly toyed

But instead of toting bedpans

They wore analytic deadpans

Those ambitious doctors Adler, Jung and Freud!

Now the big three have departed

But not so the code the started

No, it's being carried on by a goodly band

And to trauma shock and force us

Someone's gone and added Rorschach

And the whole thing's got completely out of hand!

So old boys with double chinsies

And a thousand would-be Kinseys

They discuss it at the drop of a repression

And I wouldn't be complaining

But for all the loot I'm paying

Just to lie on someone's couch and say confession!
