I've got a crazy little mama
Lord, she's my heart and soul
I don't even have to tell ya
she knows how to rock and roll
makin' everything all right
I don't even have to tell ya
she makes things seem outta sight
all right

whenever I'm down
and nothings going right at all
I just think about my baby
and all I've got to do is call

when the evening's looking pretty
and the day's hanging out too long
I know my baby cares about me
right or wrong

it took a long time to find her
it took a lot of laughs and tears
it took a long time to find her
it took me 22 years

[guitar solo]

I've got a crazy little mama
said, Lord, she's my heart and soul
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I don't even have to tell ya
she know's how to rock and roll

well this crazy lovin' mama
makin' everything all right
yeah
I don't even have to tell ya
she makes things seem outta sight
all right

it took a long time to find her
it took a lot of laughs and tears
it took a long time to find her
it took me 22 years
oh my
22 years
22 years
22 years
22 years
22 years
22 years
22 years

    General CommentI know every damn Styx song ever written, and this ain't one of them! Man, they must be sticking all the songs from the band's solos into the band itself! That's just not cool.

    General CommentActually, this is a Styx band song. It's from "The Serpent is Rising," one of their early Wooden Nickel albums. If you like Styx, especially their earlier stuff, you should listen to their Wooden Nickel recordings, because there are a few songs that should be rediscovered.

    General CommentOS Was Here, Although Dennis and J.Y. share the vocals on this song, it was actually written by co-member John (J.C.) Curulewski. I am guessing that the song was dedicated to his then-wife Janice. And it may also be him that does the lead guitar on the song.
    And as gillusion mentions, it is from 'The Serpent Is Rising' LP. Styx did have a different sound prior to Tommy Shaw during the 'Wooden Nickel' days.
