"Deuces Are Wild" as written by James Douglas Vallance and Steven Tyler....
Come here, baby.
You know you drive me up the wall
The way you make good on all the nasty tricks you pull.
Seems like we're makin' up more than we're makin' love.
And it always seems you got somethin' on your mind other than me.
Girl, you got to change your crazy ways.
You hear me?

Say you're leavin' on a seven thirty train,
And that you're headin' out to Hollywood.
Girl, you been givin' me that line so many times
It kinda gets like feelin' bad looks good. Yeah.

That kinda lovin' turns a man to a slave.
That kinda lovin' sends a man right to his grave.
I go crazy, crazy baby, I go crazy.
You turn it on, then you're gone.
Yeah, you drive me crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby.
What can I do, honey? I feel like the color blue.

You're packin' up your stuff,
And talkin' like it's tough
And tryin' to tell me that it's time to go. Yeah!
But, I know you ain't wearin' nothin' underneath that over coat.
And it's all a show. Yeah!

That kinda lovin' makes me wanna pull down the shade. Yeah!
That kinda lovin', yeah, now I'm never, never, never gonna be the same.
I go crazy, crazy baby, I go crazy.
You turn it on, then you're gone.
Yeah, you drive me crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby.
What can I do, honey? I feel like the color blue.
I'm losin' my mind, girl, cause I'm goin' cra...

I need your love. Honey, yeah!
I need your love.
Crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby,
I'm losin' my mind, girl, cause I'm goin' crazy.
Crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby.
You turn it on then, you're gone.
Yeah, you drive me...

Ooh, ooh, ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ow, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, now baby, baby, baby, baby

    General Commentyeah.. I have a hard time believing nobody posted about thsi song either! it is REALLY good..i remember when i first bought the Gold CD, i must have listened to it over and over again a million times. It's just the ultimate song of dedication, it's showing how much the singer loves this girl, he's loved her for all his life and he will love her forever. maybe "deuces are wild" could be saying that she's just a crazy person and he loves her for that.. her spirit is wild and free and that's what he wants in a person..? It's just such a good song, even the melody is so nice, this would definetely make my pick of best romance songs.

    General Commenthas anyone here read walk this way the aerosmith autobiography? if you have you will know about Diana the young girl Steven was dating. The lines

    It's you that's in my dreams I'm begging for
    But I woke up when someone slammed the door

    makes it seem like hes singing about her as he people would try to stop him seeing her.
    also the repeated words "little girl" and "mamas little baby" as Diana was very young ,14, when Steven was 28. Dont know if this is right, but thats what pops in my head when i listen to this song. Anyone share my opinion?

    My InterpretationMy daughter & I were musing about the meaning of this song and came to the conclusion that Aerosmith was singing about one of their daughters' growing up. For instance, "I love you 'cause your deuces are wild" could refer to changing diapers, as in dropping a deuce. In addition, lyrics such as "been lovin' you since you was a child" and "'cause you & me are two of a kind" can easily be attributed to the affections of a father.

    Also, the song was written by Steven Tyler in the winter of 1988 when his daughters Liv & Mia were age 11 & 10, respectively--a time when one would expect a father to look back and reminisce about his children growing up. Plus, shortly after the song was written, Liv changed her last name to Tyler (her mother admitted Steven was her biological father when Liv was 8 or 9 years old).

    Just a thought...

    General Commentmaybe it's more cliché...but the way they sing it, write it down and all that feeling in it makes it better then some ppl think.

    General CommentNo1 posted on this song! well this is awesome a pure rock love song here. obviously explaining his addiction to this girl hu could also simulate his drug addiction he had. hmm food for thought there!

    General CommentDrug addiction? Where does it say anything about drugs? I'm not saying you're wrong, i'm just saying I see no mention of drugs, literally or metaphorically.

    Seems to me that he's just in love with this girl who is perfect for him, she's exiting and constantly full of suprise, hence her 'deuces' being wild. I may be wrong to, I was confused for a long time with the line 'Deuces are wild'. I'm really just settling on the theory i cam up with that fits it most... I'm not satisfied though - which is what this site is for. Would be great if more people posted their opinions on this great track though.

    General CommentI like the intro to the song, and when the first lines hit; it makes them pretty powerful, and it makes it sound like his giving all of his emotion.
    Ditto to the previous comments-I'm surprised no one likes this song that much. I was going through my iPod and found it and thought it was pretty cool, otherwise I might never have listened to it again. ;)
    Anyone, as for the chorus, it seems to me that the "Deuces are wild" line would have to do with "two", like the two of them are wild together, or as he says, they are two of a kind. I dunno, but I really like the song.
