  • They called them crazy when they started out
    Said seventeen's too young to know what love's about
    They've been together fifty-eight years now
    That's crazy

    He brought home sixty-seven bucks a week
    He bought a little two bedroom house on Maple Street
    Where she blessed him with six more mouths to feed
    Yeah, that's crazy

    Just ask him how he did it, he'll say, "pull up a seat"
    It'll only take a minute to tell you everything
    Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse "I love you"
    Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
    Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
    And love like crazy

    They called him crazy when he quit his job
    Said them home computers, boy, they'll never take off
    He sold his one-man shop to Microsoft
    And they paid like crazy

    Just ask him how he made it
    He'll tell you, faith and sweat
    And the heart of a faithful woman
    Who never let him forget

    Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse "I love you"
    Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
    Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
    And love like crazy

    Always treat your woman like a lady
    Never get to old to call her "baby"
    Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
    And love like crazy

    They called him crazy when they started out
    They've been together fifty-eight years now

    Ain't that crazy? Writer/s: Doug Johnson, Tim James
