YOU DON’T KNOW CRAZY I’m looking for somebody And I know what I want You don’t have to be some stupid debutante A troubled girl is perfect for me because even diamonds are full of flaws and It doesn’t matter if you’re falling apart I’m just looking for somebody with a beautiful heart She's flipping tables and She's mentally unstable but You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy She’s lighting shit on fire But that don’t even phase me You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy at all I don’t date models of good behaviour I like a girl with a sense of danger I don’t want no one from the magazine rack I just want someone who has my back, well I want a girl who will call me on my shit if she’s crazier than me well I wouldn't a mind bit She's flipping tables and She's mentally unstable but You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy She gets a little bit stabby But my memory is hazy You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy She’s 27 but she’s going on 12 She looks like heaven but she treats me like hell Well I don’t care cuz She might just save me You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy at all I met her down at the mall maybe it’s true maybe we’re all just a little unhinged and a little unglued without a net I'm walkin’ on a tightrope They called the cops on us And then they tazed me They threw the book at us but they only grazed me 90 years from now when we're pushing up daisies I’ll be dead but she’ll still be crazy She’s 27 but she’s going on 12 She looks like heaven but she treats me like hell Well I don’t care She just like me You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy at all You Don’t Know Crazy You Don’t Know Crazy at all Like I know crazy y'know

I’m always thinking that I’m always broke Where are my keys at? I don’t remember! Who put the mattress on the lawn? Where is my TV set? Where’s my receiver? I can’t remember where the money gone? Who did this? Who did this? I don’t know! I’m drawing a blank I’m drawing a blank Ok Ok Ok Ok Let’s figure this out Who ate up all these pills? Who maxed out my credit card?

about

Hey everybody. This is an album of some of the songs featured in the Jesse Jams documentary. We are missing the track Hit The Hole (which is about aimless roommates and damp bathrooms) and is a humdinger of a tune. If this dang virus subsides we'll get HTH finalized and up here as part of the pack. Anyone who supports this album now will get a free bonus when life resumes! All money from album or track sales will go to Jesse (hopefully for a tuner). boom!!

In the meantime check out Trevor Anderson's spot-on documentary on the man, the myth, Mr. Jesse Jams.
