I'd Have to Be Crazy
(to Be Crazy 'bout You)

1) I never thought I’d meet someone like you
But there she was, she looked exactly like you
Matter of fact, she even acted like you
Guess who it was, it was you, dear

2) Everyone thought I was out of my mind
You were the kinda girl I never could find
No one believed you’d be the least bit inclined
to be the one I call mine, dear, they said

I’d Have to Be Crazy to Be Crazy ‘bout You
I’d have to be going insane
Lacking a clue, losing a screw to think that
someone like me could be with someone like you

3) Everyone said I was losing my head
I’d never get a girl like you in my bed
They said that you and I would never be wed
They said that I should forget it

I’d Have to Be Crazy to Be Crazy ‘bout You
I’d have to be out of my mind
What should I do, it’s too good to be true
because you’re too good for me and I’m too good for you

Bridge) We’re good for each other, no one can say we’re not
So whatever they say, we’re gonna say so what
‘Cause whatever we got, it’s totally hot
Maybe I’m crazy but I’m crazy ‘bout you

4) Everyone warned me when you first appeared
Now that I know you, it is just as I feared
I always thought you were a little bit weird
You’d have to be, to like me, dear

You’d have to be crazy to be crazy ‘bout me
You’d have to be totally out of your tree
Missing some gears, between the ears
I mean your six-pack would have to be missing some beers

Bridge) But it takes one to know one and there’s no one like you
You’re one of a kind, and one and one makes two
Now I know what I want, and what I want is you
My crazy little loony-toon screwball you
My crazy little loony-toon you

(Instrumental)

I’d Have to Be Crazy to Be Crazy ‘bout You
I’d have to be out of my brain
A bug must’ve bitten, I’m totally smitten
‘cause you’re cute as a kitten, your jeans are tight- fittin’
It’s too late for quittin’, this is Greater than Britain
because baby I’m in love with you

I’m ever so coo-coo, yes I’m crazy ‘bout you
Forever incurably nuts
So I’m spending some bucks, I’m renting a tux
and then we’ll go on a honeymoon and have some good yuks

Bridge) I’d Have to Be Crazy to Be Crazy ‘bout You
And likewise, dear, you’d have to be crazy too
It’s a crazy old world, but one thing is true
I’d have to be crazy not to be crazy
I’d have to be crazy not to be crazy
I’d have to be crazy not to be crazy about you
