Facts:
  • In the early '60s, unlikely as it may sound, psychiatry was a big fad and this song fit right in. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • From the album- "Against the World" (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    It happened in Vienna not so very long ago
    when there weren't enough people getting sick
    That a starving young physician
    tried to better his position
    by discovering what made these patients tick

    (chorus:)
    Oh, Dr. Freud, oh, Dr. Freud
    How we wish you had been differently employed
    For this set of circumstances now enhances the finances
    of the followers of Dr. Sigmund Freud

    He forgot about sclerosis, but invented the psychosis
    plus a hundred ways that sex could be enjoyed
    He adopted as his credo, "Down repression, up libido!"
    and that was the start of Dr. Sigmund Freud

    (chorus)

    He analyzed the dreams of the teens and libertines
    and he substituted monologues for pills
    He drew crowds just like Will Sadler
    When along came Yung and Adler
    and they said, "By God! There's gold in them thar hills!"

    (chorus)

    They encountered no resistance
    as they served as Freud's assistants
    and with ego and with id they deftly toyed
    And instead of toting bedpans
    they wore analytic deadpans
    Those ambitious doctors, Adler, Yung and Freud

    (chorus)

    Now the Big Three have departed
    but not so the thing they started
    For it's carried on by quite a goodly band
    And to trauma, shock and more shock
    Someone went and added Rorschach
    Now the thing has got completely out of hand

    (chorus)
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
