Psychotherapy

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the theories of Freud.
He has taught me all the evils that my ego must avoid —
Repression of the impulses results in paranoid,
As the Id goes marching on!

Chorus:
Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!

There was a man who thought his friends to him were all superior,
And in this complex he imagined made Life drearier and drearier,
Till his analyst assured him — that he really was inferior!
As the Id goes marching on!

Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!

Do you drown your superego in a flood of alcohol?
And the running after women till you're just about to fall?
You may think you're having fun, but you're not having fun at all,
As the Id goes marching on!

Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!

Oh sad is the masochism, the vagaries of sex,
Out to tempt the population into total nervous wrecks,
But your analyst can cure you, Long as you can pay the checks,
As the Id goes marching on!

Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!

Is your body plagued with aches and pains that you can't understand?
Compound fractures, ingrown toenails, floating kidneys, trembling hands?
There's a secret to your troubles — you're in Love with your old man!
As the Id goes marching on!

Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!

Freud's mystic world of meaning needn't have us mystified
It's really very simple what the psyche tries to hide.
A thing's a phallic symbol if it's longer than it's wide!
As the Id goes marching on!

Glory, glory psychotherapy!
Glory, glory sexuality!
Glory, glory now we can be free,
As the Id goes marching on!
