MR. Crae Crae

Your crazy makes my crazy
Not seem crazy at all
After giving it a second thought
Do not ever give me a call
Things you say and do each day are
Not the way I want to live at all
You surely act a bit off the wall
Dealing with you I believe my life
Would be weird and bizarre
Yeah Mr Crae Crae you are not
for me by far
Something is pretty screwy you
Are a Giant screwball in my eyes
Special some would say but
Schizo Psycho I have come to
Way beyond plain nutty and fruity
You are full blown nutty as a
Plain CRAZY, peculiar no lie
Now better than later for me to say
Good ridders…BYE BYE!!!!!
