I'm crap at doing links, so if anyone can help... This - Skeeter Davis - End of the world.
It's what Morrissey sang when coming on stage at Wembley Arena last Saturday, very emotional.

They're coming to take me away ha-haaa
They're coming to take me away ho-ho hee-hee ha-haaa
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men
In their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away ha-haaa

Stay away from me - The Sylvers.

No idea about the song but the title fits!

Here is the chorus!

So stay away from me
So stay away from me
Just stay away from me
Do you hear?
Just stay away from me

Ooh ooh

Elton John - No Man Is An Island

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_HJAWe8z9I

From the Poem of the same name by John Donne ( Meditation XVII - Meditation 17 )

No man is an island,
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a manor of thy friend’s
or of thine own were.

Any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind;
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.

Stronger Together
