"Deuces Are Wild" as written by James Douglas Vallance and Steven Tyler....
I love to look into your big brown eyes
They talk to me and seem to hypnotize
You say the things nobody dares to say
And I'm not about to let you fly away
My lover with no jet lag
We'll stay up all night in my sleepin' bag
You got a heart-beatin' rhythm from the subterranean
I really love you little girl, I don't need to explain
I love you 'cause your deuces are wild, girl
Like a double shot of lovin' so fine
I been lovin' you since you was a child, girl
'cause you and me is two of a kind
Like deja vu I feel like I've been here
Or somewhere else but you've been always near
It's you that's in my dreams I'm beggin' for
But I woke up when someone slammed the door
So hard I fell out of bed
Screamin' mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread
And the moral of the story, I can testify
I get stoned on you girl, that's the best reason why

    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.
