Lyrics

I’M THE CRAZY ONE

 

Aunt Joan has a twelve foot crucifix on her front lawn

She claims all the Christian souls she knew are dead and gone

Her own son is a Buddha lover living chant to chant

She says she forgives him but she knows the good lord can’t

 

Robbie went to Ink Extremes about a month ago

Got himself a tattoo on his heel where it won’t show

A tiny cross and words that say keep walking with me lord

He says it’s pretty lame but it’s the best that he can afford

 

Chorus

But in my family

I’m the crazy one

A black sheep brother

And a lazy son

A dreamer sleeping through his wakeup call

And they’re scared to see someone like me

Can love them all

 

Bill dined at Lord Jasper’s Court to try the gourmet fare

Paid 300 dollars and was told what not to wear

It’s worth the tiny portions and a night beyond his means

To be apart from slobs like me in flannel shirts and jeans

 

Chorus

 

I could go on naming names

But what’s the sense

They don’t like me having fun

At their expense

But I’ll keep on singing

Don’t count me out just yet

Someday I might be famous

For the things I just don’t get

 

Chorus
