Ooh yeah...
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Well, well, well, well

Stick it in your ear
'Cause it ain't exactly clear
What you people hear
I tell you that's right, oh yeah

Sucker in the middle
Blowing hot and cold
Cracking his whip
On the American horse

He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse, well
He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse, well

Feather in his mane
Showing no fear
Of a twisted shady fool
I tell you that's right, ah-ha, that's right
Truth's a mighty clear

Forever on and on
Never break a spirit
Of the American horse, well
Don't you shoot him down

He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse
He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse, yeah

He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse
He's gone crazy, completely crazy
Trying to tame the American horse
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Crazy
On the day they tried to tame the American horse, yeah
Crazy
On the day they tried to tame the American horse, ow

Riding on a pony
Riding against the wind
And in came Brando
And he told it like this
