Katie Melua - Mad, Mad Men Lyrics

(Mike Batt)

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls
It’s always the mad, mad men
And the wild, wild women who change the world

Oscar, he was a wayward child
No one could forsee him fail
With his pen he went a little wild
And ended up in Reading jail
Looking at the world through cold steel bars
Lying in a gutter but looking at the stars, oh

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls
It’s always the mad, mad men
And the wild, wild women who change the world

Joan of Arc seemed like a ditzy dame
Claiming she was from the lord
But she won her battle and she made her name
She must’ve had a magic sword
Then somebody shouted heresy!
She went up in flames and down in history

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls
It’s always the mad, mad men
And the wild, wild women who change the world

Ooh you know it don’t really matter
You can be as mad as a hatter too
And you can climb that ladder
To the top!

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls
It’s always the mad, mad men
And the wild, wild women who change the world
