"Crazy on You" as written by Ann Wilson, Nancy Wilson and Roger Fisher....
If we still have time, we might still get by
Every time I think about it, I want to cry
With bombs and the devil, and the kids keep comin'
No way to breathe easy, no time to be young

But I tell myself that I was doin' all right
There's nothin' left to do at night
But go crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh

My love is the evenin' breeze touchin' your skin
The gentle, sweet singin' of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early moonlight
And you don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
My love, the pleasure's mine

Let me go crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, ohhh

Wild man's world is cryin' in pain
What you gonna do when everybody's insane
So afraid of one who's so afraid of you
What you gonna do, ohh

(Ah-ah-ah-ah)

Oohh crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

I was a willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
Sang you the song that I heard up above
And you kept me alive with your sweet flowing love

Crazy
Yeah, crazy on ya
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh
Crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, yeah

(Ah-ah-ah-ah)

Crazy on ya
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

    General CommentA love song for the despair of the seventies, when the hot and cold wars raged (the bombs), big business was blamed for everything (the devils), and the ecologists thought overpopulation was going to consume the globe (the kids keep coming). If you believed the rhetoric, you'd surely believe the end was near, it's a "wild man's world ... crying in pain," and "everyone's going insane."

    But the song is about romantic love, and particularly romantic passion, which survives all of this, which makes a life worth living despite all the tragedy.

    And it holds up beautifully over time - it's a song for any time you really feel like the world is in a disastrous state - but you're still not ready to sacrifice your spirit - or your passion for those who share your love.

    General Comment(This is missing the verse:
    "Wild man's world is cryin' in pain
    What you gonna do when everybody's insane
    So afraid of one who's so afraid of you
    What you gonna do...ohhh...")

    I think it's about the war.

    "Every time I think about it I want to cry
    With the bombs and the devils
    And the kids keep coming
    Nowhere to breathe easy...no time to be young"

    All the teenagers are sent to war. There they basically go through hell. They can't breath easy anywhere while in the war, and they have to grow up right now.

    "My love is the evening breeze touching your skin
    The gentle sweet singing of leaves in the wind
    The whisper that calls, after you in the night
    And kisses your ear in the early light
    You don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
    And my love, the pleasure's mine
    Let me go crazy on you"

    It's the last night with her lover until he gets shipped off to fight. "The whisper that calls, after you in the night" is the draft.

    "Wild man's world is cryin' in pain
    What you gonna do when everybody's insane
    So afraid of one who's so afraid of you"

    The world cries in pain during wars. People accusing others of everything, death, and people saying this will be the end of the world. Wars drive people crazy -- look at the vets. And the craziest thing: You are terrified of the people you are fighting... and they are terrified of you.

    "And you keep me alive with your sweet, flowing love"

    The only thing that keeps her from dying from the pain of losing her lover is the fact that he loves her...


    Anyway, that's what I think. The song kicks ass, as does the ladies. :)

    General CommentMaybe in this song they are trying to say that no matter what happens they'll be together because of their love. And when they are together she can't kept her hands off him
