“Come here baby
You know you drive me up a 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 somn’
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

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
but I know you ain’t wearin’
nothin’ underneath that overcoat
and it’s all a show

That kind of lovin’
makes me wanna pull
down the shade, yeah
that kind of lovin’
yeah now I’m never, 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’ crazy

I need your love, honey
I need your love

Crazy, crazy, crazy, I go crazy
you turn it on
then you’re gone
yeah you drive me
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 your gone
yeah you drive me”.

Crazy is a power ballad performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith and written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Desmond Child. It was the final single from their massively successful 1994 album Get a Grip. It was released as a single in 1994 and peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, #7 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and #3 in Canada. In the United Kingdom, it was released as a double-A side with “Blind Man“, which reached #23. The song’s lyrics are about a woman who comes and goes, and whose “crazy ways” drive the narrator “crazy.”
The video for the song was directed by Marty Callner and received heavy rotation on MTV. It was one of the most requested videos of 1994. It featured the third appearance of Alicia Silverstone in the band’s videos, and was the career debut of Steven’s then-teenaged daughter Liv Tyler. The decision to cast Liv in the video for “Crazy” was based on the video’s creators having seen her in a Pantene commercial. The video is film-like and depicts the two as schoolgirls who skip class and run away, driving off in a black Ford Mustang convertible in a manner similar to the 1991 hit film Thelma & Louise. The two use their good looks to take advantage of a service station clerk, and needing money, enter an amateur pole-dancing competition. The video is noteworthy for its risque and sexually suggestive scenes. The video is edited to show the similarities in stage moves of Steven Tyler and daughter Liv. The girls win the dance competition, then spend the night in a motel. They continue their joyride the following day, where they encounter a young sweaty and shirtless farmer (played by model Dean Kelly) aboard a tractor tilling land in the countryside. They persuade him to join them in their journey, where they all go skinny dipping in a lake. The girls take off with his clothes and leave him behind at the lake. Naked, he chases after them, and rejoins them in the convertible. The final seconds of the video show the word “Crazy” spelled out in cursive in the cropland by the still-running tractor. Jason London makes a short cameo at the end in a tag scene, reprising his character from the “Amazing” video. A longer director’s cut of the video appears on the compilation Big Ones You Can Look At. This version features a few more provocative clips, and a longer, more risque version of the pole-dancing competition scene. It also removes the scene in which the girls abandon the farmer after skinny-dipping with him. Both versions of the video include an extra reprise of the chorus which is not included on the album and radio versions.
The song was the second highest chart performance for the band out of all the singles for Get a Grip. It also earned the band a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal in 1994. This was the band’s second Grammy win for Get a Grip and third overall. The video for “Crazy” was selected #23 in VH1’s Top 100 Music Videos of All Time. The song appeared on a several compilations including Big Ones, A Little South of Sanity, O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits and Devil’s Got a New Disguise. Despite bringing much success for the band in the mid-1990s, Aerosmith rarely performed it on tour until it was added to international shows on their 2007 World Tour due to overwhelming demand from fans. It is covered in Glee by Jacob Artist and Melissa Benoist, mashed up with Britney Spears‘ “(You Drive Me) Crazy“.
