Shrink, tell your problems to your shrink
Tell her everything you think
That's what a shrink is for
Fifty, fifty minutes in a chair
And ninety bucks from God knows where
That's more than most people make in a day

Your shrink is your friend, she'll be there for you
If you feel like you want to cry
She'll offer her hand and empathy too
When you're shriveled up inside

Notes, process and content down in notes
So she won't forget what she wrote
In two weeks at your next appointment
She looks at what your body language says
So she can get inside your head
And foster everything to nothing

Now your shrink is your mom, she should cook for you
And give you presents at Christmas time
But she don't love you enough for to do
The things all outside your mind

Don't bitch about your stair cause I don't really care
Don't tell me about your hair, tell it to your shrink
Don't tell me about your sex or why you're gender perplexed
Don't ask me to touch your breast tell it to your

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
