"Millie And Billie" as written by Bernie Taupin, Alice Cooper and Bruce Roberts....
Billie I wonder why are we insane
Will we ever get better
Will we stay the same
Billie I'm worried

Millie don't worry
No one knows our pain
Being in love is crazy not alone that way
I know you're worried today

God made love crazy so he wouldn't feel alone
He was thinking of us he was thinking of us
God made love crazy so he wouldn't feel so alone

Billie my mind seems to wander
To events of a night long ago
Driving alone with our guilt well concealed
In the trunk of your '68 Olds

Millie our world's an asylum
And our minds like you say ain't that straight
But you know and I know our passion's
Not deformed it's true to say
We'll love our lifetime

God made love crazy so he wouldn't feel alone
He was thinking of us he was thinking of us
God made love crazy so he wouldn't feel so alone

Billie I dream of our children
They're frightening and gruesome and sad
And I don't want them growing inside me
They're no price for the love that we have

Oh Millie oh Billie criminally insane
Oh Millie oh Billie

Oh Billie it's fresh in my memory
The night that it had to be done
You with your pick axe and scissors
And you with your shovel and gun

And I liked your late husband Donald
But such torture his memory brings
All sliced up and sealed tight in baggies
Guess love makes you do funny things

Oh Millie oh Billie criminally insane
Oh Millie oh Billie

    General CommentNo one here is incorrect as what the song is about, however, the hitch is..Millie and Billie are brother and sister.

    That's the rhyming names and the verse "Billie I dream of our children/They're frightening and gruesome and sad/And I don't want them growing inside me/hey're no price for the love that we have

    In "Golf Monster" Alice explains very little about Millie and Billie, other than to say no one actually knew what their relationship was.

    General Commentthis is from his "from the inside" album n he wrote it when he was in a mental alylum and it almost seems to be about 2 personalitys. or its about the obvious... 2 people in the asylum who love each other so much it drives them crazy. thats what i think anyway

    General CommentI think these two were crazy before the asylum, as they cut up her late husband Donald and sealed him up in baggies, cause love makes you do funny things.... I think this is a great song, cause if you listen to how actually pretty the song is, you almost feel sorry for Millie and Billy

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite love song of all time.

    Basically it's about this couple Millie and Billie who were already married when they met and became lovers. They ended up killing eachothers spouses so they could be together. Now they're homocidal lovers in the asylum.

    Love makes you do crazy things.

    General CommentYes, it's definitely about 2 crazy people in an insane asylum. I htink i agree with the interpretation that the love made them crazy and homicidal. I wish i could remember what Alice said when i heard him talking about this song!!!

    General Commenti love this song! I especially love the fact that because it was his first album after he came out of the asylum, all the characters ion the songs are based on real people that he met! I hink it gives the song that disturbing edge (as if the lyrics didnt anyway) that makes you stop and think hang on a minute there really are people out there like that...
