"I'm Bugged" is a song written by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1977 debut album White Music. Oddly enough, the keyboards were not recorded by Barry Andrews; they were in fact recorded by a couple of roadies who had no idea how to play the keyboards.

A live in-studio version, for John Peel, appeared on Drums and Wireless, later on the 1998 Transistor Blast box set.

QuotesEdit

Andy (on the live version): “A ludicrous song; the lyrics don't particularly mean anything. I just loved the phrase ‘I'm Bugged’. This is a very scratchy sounding version, like the amps were being abused.”

LyricsEdit

I'm bugged

You all look like insects

In your brand new sunspecs

I'm bugged I'm bugged

I drop a little note through my sympathetics door

I think I'm going ga ga

I just can't take anymore

At first I see 'em swarming from a dark and midnight nest

And when I see 'em fiddling well I think you've guessed the rest!


I'm bugged

You all look like insects

In your brand new sunspecs

I'm bugged I'm bugged

I wake up in a cold sweat and I run into the street

And just like in my nightmare they are jiggling at my feet

I take a dead man's lighter and I burn them to the floor

But where there was a dozen there are now a hundred more


I'm bugged

You all look like insects

In your brand new sunspecs

I'm bugged I'm bugged
