Let's Go Crazy

Spoken Intro

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called "life"

Electric word, life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you
There's something else
The afterworld

A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night

So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything'll-Be-Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby

‘Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life
You're on your own

And if the elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy [Punch a higher floor! ]

Verse 1

If you don't like
The world you're living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends

Called my old lady
For a friendly word
Picked up the phone
Dropped it on the floor
And then [Ah ah] is all I heard

Before chorus

Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh, no lets go!

Chorus

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Let's look for the purple banana
Until they put us on the truck, let's go!

Verse 2

We're all excited
We don't know why
Maybe it's ‘cause
We're all gonna die
And when we do [When we do
What's it all for [What's it all for
You better live now
Before the grim reaper comes knocking at your door

Before chorus

Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let's go!

Chorus

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
And let’s look for the purple banana
Until they put us on the truck, let's go!

Ad lib / Instrumental break

C'mon baby
Let's get nuts!
Let’s get crazy
Yeah

Let's go crazy!

Before chorus

Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let's go!

Bridge

Let’s go crazy
Let’s go [Let’s go!
Let’s go crazy
Let’s go [Let’s go!
Let’s go [Let’s go!]

Verse 3

Dr. Everything'll-Be-Alright
Will make everything go wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill
Hang tough children

He's comin'
He's comin'
He’s comin'

Guitar solo

Outro

When I was in sixth grade
All the little kids said if they wanted to have sex with Vanity or Apollonia
And they said “Which one?”
And I said “When I grow up, I’mma have sex with them both at the same time”
Take me away!
Take me away!
Take me away!
Yeah!
