Lyrics for Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne:

Intro
All aboard! Hahahahahahahaaaa!
Ay (Ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay)

Verse 1
Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love and forget how to hate

Pre-Chorus
Mental wounds not healing
Life's a bitter shame

Chorus
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

Verse 2
Let's go!
I've listened to preachers, I've listened to fools
I've watched all the dropouts who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role

Pre-Chorus
Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane

Chorus
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

Bridge
I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words, yeah, yeah!

Guitar Solo

Verse 3
Heirs of a cold war, that's what we've become
Inheriting troubles, I'm mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I'm living with something' that just isn't fair

Pre-Chorus
Mental wounds not healing
Who and what's to blame?

Chorus
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
