Lyrics
Being in love is never easy,
'Specially with a guy who drives you crazy.
Call me a liar, my heart's on fire -
Crazy all the time ...
You're on my mind
Ooh on my mind,
You're on my mind
Ooh on my mind.
When I'm down or feeling under,
Crazy come and shout like thunder,
Lifting me up a-higher, higher,
There I always find ...
You're on my mind
Ooh on my mind,
You're on my mind
Ooh on my mind.
"Lord,
Open th' door open th' door that leads to ya heart
Open th' door open th' door that leads to ya heart
Ya like a breath-a-light come thru' th' daylight
I love ya so much, said I high like a kite".
Living hard or living easy, moving fast or moving slow,
Doesn't matter if I'm busy, where you go you're always
On my mind ...
When the sun is up an risin'
Day or night he is hypnotisin'
Lifting me up a-higher-higher
There I always find.
You're on my mind
Ooh on my mind ... Rpt.
"Lord,
Open th' door open th' door that leads to ya heart
Open th' door open th' door that leads to ya heart
Ya like a breath-a-light come thru' th' daylight
I love ya so much, said I high like a kite-
They call me wanderer from town t' city
But my body shivers if ya not near with me
You're my love you're sweet you're my star apple
But I love ya so much I'm gonna tell the people".
Living hard or living easy, moving fast or moving slow,
Doesn't matter if I'm busy, where you go you're always
On my mind ...
Need I need I need I need my baby
Rpt. ...
Day and night - Ba daba daba di
Day and night - 'Cos I need ya
Day and night - Ba daba daba doh
Day and night - 'Cos ya need Joe
Day and night - I'm gonna catch ya
Day and night - I'm gonna hold ya
Crazy Joe - I'm gonna touch ya
Crazy Joe - I'm gonna get ya
But will you really love me,
Say when I'm growing old, Crazy Joe?
"Gonna love ya when ya young
I would-a-love ya if ya young
I would-a-love ya if ya old
Don't push me 'way like ya gon' too cold
I would-a-love ya if ya old
I would-a-love ya if ya young
Oh girl ya my honey bun ..."
Playing Crazy Joe like a puppet-on-a-string
All your shaberankin' talking, it don't mean a thing, C.J!
"Oh don't treat me like a puppet-on-a-string
Don't ya I'm only doin' me chanting-
Don't treat me like a puppet-on-a-string
To me you are my everythin' ..."
Oh you're a crazy fella tellin' me what I should do
You've got funny notions and you've got funny shoes...
"Oh you're hurting me girl,
You're hurting me with your p____s and barbs
Don't ya know they are hurting me hard
Touchin' me like a poison dart ...
You're a little boy
... Girl don't ya have no heart ..."
Moaning all the time
I'm looking for some man
Who can give me good time C.J!
"A good time! Got no money in my pocket
But I still give ya love, No money in my pocket
But I still give ya love ... Don't ya treat me like no
Barbel dove, don't ya know you are my turtle dove!
Ah girl, girl ...... Don't ya go cold on me ...
Well I've money in my pocket ... Don't ya go cold on me ..."
And I put it there myself
I've money in my pocket,
And I ain't on no shelf, C.J!
"Oh girl ... oh why ...
You're a superstar ya gonna go far
But please don't ya ever leave me also
You're a superstar don't ya ever go too far
Don't ya ever leave me and go too far ..."
Hey little boy ... "Ah no ...
Go back where you come from ... I'm coming to you"
I am liberated,
Yeah I am woman, C.J!
"A liberated woman and you're very strong
You're a liberated woman and you're very strong
Oh don't ya see I'm kind-a handsome
Oh can't ya see I'm your only one
I'm gonna hold ya and hold ya strong ..."
Hey liberated woman ...... "Don't ya let go"
Hey liberated woman ...... "Don't ya let go"
Hey liberated woman ...... "Don't ya let go"
You don't need no one ... "Of Crazy Joe"
You don't need no one ... "Of Crazy Joe"
Hey liberated woman
You don't need no man, C.J!
"Ah girl, your barbs 'em p____ me
With your conscience ...
With your conscience ...
I love ya so much, I love ya so much ..."
Bye bye Crazy,
Bye bye Crazy, C.J.
"I love ya so much ...
I love ya so much ...
I'm missing your tender touch
Ya touch me back, ya could've touch toe
Please don't forget Crazy Joe!
Ya touch me limbs ya could've
Touch me heart, but ya buds like poison dart ..."
Yeah we had a good time
Funny time with you
But baby I am out to find somebody new, C.J.
"Don't, don't go ..."
Bye bye
"Don't say that ... "
Bye bye
"Ah God"
Day and night
Day and night, I'm looking
Day and night ... etc.
