Album: Sonic Temple (1989)
  • Ooh yeah...
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Well, well, well, well

    Stick it in your ear
    'Cause it ain't exactly clear
    What you people hear
    I tell you that's right, oh yeah

    Sucker in the middle
    Blowing hot and cold
    Cracking his whip
    On the American horse

    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse, well
    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse, well

    Feather in his mane
    Showing no fear
    Of a twisted shady fool
    I tell you that's right, ah-ha, that's right
    Truth's a mighty clear

    Forever on and on
    Never break a spirit
    Of the American horse, well
    Don't you shoot him down

    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse
    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse, yeah

    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse
    He's gone crazy, completely crazy
    Trying to tame the American horse
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Crazy
    On the day they tried to tame the American horse, yeah
    Crazy
    On the day they tried to tame the American horse, ow

    Riding on a pony
    Riding against the wind
    And in came Brando
    And he told it like this Writer/s: IAN ROBERT ASTBURY, WILLIAM HENRY DUFFY
