LyricsEdit

There she is 
Sittin' there
Out behind the smokehouse in her rockin' chair
She don't say nothin'
She don't see nothin'
She don't feel nothin'
She don't know nothin'
Maybe she's crazy I don't know.
But maybe that's why I love her so.

Her papa was a midget.
Her mamma was a whore.
Her grandad was a newsboy 'til he was 84, what a slimy old bastard he was.
Man don't you think I know that she hates me?
Man don't you think I know that she's no good?
Man don't you think I know she's crazy?
I think she'd kill me if she could.
Maybe she's crazy I don't know
But maybe that's why I love her so

I'm not afraid of the grey wolf
Who stalks through our forest at dawn
As long as I have her beside me,
I have the strength to carry on

Today we will be married
And all the freaks that she knows will be there
And all the people that I know will be there 
To congratulate us
I will carry her across the threshold.
I will make dim the light
I will attempt to spend my love within her
But though I try with all my might

She will laugh at my mighty sword
She will laugh at my mighty sword
Why must everyone laugh at my mighty sword?
Lord, help me if you will

Maybe we're both crazy, I don't know.
But maybe that's why I love her so.

Notes Edit

The track also exists as an unreleased demo from a practice tape.
