  • Mama, I found someone
    Like you said would come along
    He's a sight and so unlike
    Any man I've known

    I was afraid to let him in
    'Cause I'm not the trustin' kind
    But now I'm convinced that he's heaven sent
    And must be out of his mind

    Mama, he's crazy, crazy over me
    And in my life is where he says
    He always wants to be

    I've never been so in love
    He beats all I've ever seen
    And mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me

    And mama, you've always said
    You better look before you leap
    But maybe so, but here I go
    Lettin' my heart lead me

    He thinks I hung the moon and stars
    I think he's a livin' dream
    Well, there are men, but ones like him
    Are few and far between

    Mama, he's crazy, crazy over me
    And in my life is where he says
    He always wants to be

    I've never been so in love
    He beats all I've ever seen
    Mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me
    Oh mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me
