I can’t seem to face up to the facts
I’m tense and nervous and I can’t relax
I can’t sleep, 'cause my bed’s on fire
Don’t touch me, I’m a real live wire

Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh
Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh oh, ay ay ay ay ay, woo

You start a conversation, you can’t even finish it
You’re talking a lot, but you’re not saying anything
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed
Say something once, why say it again?

Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh
Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh oh, ay ay ay ay ay

Ce que j’ai fait ce soir-là
Ce qu’elle a dit ce soir-là
Réalisant mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire, okay
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they’re not polite

Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh
Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa, far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away
Oh oh oh oh, ay ay ay ay ay, woo

Alternate second verse:
I passed out hours ago
I’m sadder than you’ll ever know
I closed my eyes on this sunny day
Say something once, why say it again?
