"Crazy" as written by Desmond Child, Joe Perry 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 Commentgreat song,describing the pain of a guy who's girl messes him about but he still loves her no matter what. Excellent guitar solo from Mr Perry, and check out 1 of the last lines where Steven goes so high pitched, it sounds like a high guitar note...in fact, i cant tell if it is or not!

    General Commentto me the song means: they love each other and he is willing to put up with her crazy love. he is use to it by now. She just has to get it out of her system and she will be back and then it start all over agian like a rollercoaster.

    General CommentThis is great song!! I think the meaning is pretty obvious. The guy is in love with a girl who's a lot of drama, and she plays games, but he's willing to deal with all her drama cause he's crazy about her, he loves her and he needs her. The lyrics tells the story.
    I love the harmonica in the background, excellent guitar, this song has a very nostalgic sound, it's awesome!! That part at the end of the song when Steven goes so high pitched you almost can't tell if is steven's voice or a high guitar note.
    I really like the begining of the song, when he talks before start singing. I think this song is a favourite for all of us Aerosmith lovers!!

    General Commentturtonhof is patrialy right. It´s about t a love he couldn´t get back, about a crazy girl he fell in love with. It´s about some one that drives him completly crazy... all in all great song

    General CommentI'm listening to it right now. I read the comment about how great the overcoat line is just as it got to that point! Spooky lol!

    Anyway, this song is brilliant, and I love the solo. I love all the solos in all the songs though. I'm having an Aerosmith day today, just gonna sit here playing all their songs and singing along.

    General CommentHaha I didn't like this song at first either & now it's one of faves from this band. streetsweeper, the "overcoat..." line simply means that she's faking like she's going to leave him, she's even dressed for the part ("...you're packing up your stuff...trying to tell me that its time to go...its all a show...")but he knows it's all gonna end the same way it does every time this goes on...they're gonna make up.

    General CommentI believe that it's not the girl that is crazy but it's the fact that she's completely different from him that makes him go crazy and at the same time that makes him crazy about her.
    She messes up with his certainties, she changes him constantly (That kinda lovin', yeah, now I'm never, never, never gonna be the same).
    The fact that he accepts her as she is, that he thinks more about her then about himself and that he is willing to change is what I believe love is.
    He's not judging the girl, he is loving her as she is.

    At least I wish it was like that :)

    It's too bad that at the beginnig he says " Girl, you got to change your crazy ways"
    But love is a challenge

    General CommentThis is one of the most awesome songs by Aerosmith. I'm so lucky to have them as a favorite band. The lyrics in this are awesome, its more like a story than a song. Really awesome!
