Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no. Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no (yeah).

| Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) |
History in the making. Part two, it’s so crazy right now.

Verse 1

||: Dm N.C | N.C :||
I look and stare so deep in your eyes,
I touch on you more and more every time.
When you leave, I’m begging you not to go,
call your name two, three times in a row.
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain,
how I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame.
(Yeah, yeah) ‘Cause I know I don’t understand, just how your love can do what no one else can.

Chorus 1

||: Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) :|| x4
Got me looking so crazy right now, 
your love’s got me looking so crazy right now (your love).
Got me looking so crazy right now, 
your touch got me looking so crazy right now (your touch).
Got me hoping you’ll page me right now, 
your kiss got me hoping you’ll save me right now.
Looking so crazy, your love’s got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

Breakdown

||: Dm N.C | N.C :||
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no. Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no. Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no

Verse 2

||: Dm N.C | N.C :|| x4
When I talk to my friends so quietly,
(who he think he is?) Look at what you did to me.
Tennis shoes, don’t even need to buy a new dress,
if you ain’t there, ain’t nobody else to impress.
It’s the way that you know what I thought I knew,
it’s the beat that my heart skips when I’m with you.
But I still don’t understand, just how your love can do what no one else can.

Chorus 2

||: Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) :|| x5
Got me looking so crazy right now, 
your love’s got me looking so crazy right now (so crazy).
Got me looking so crazy right now (your love),
your touch, got me looking so crazy right now (love).
Got me hoping you’ll page me right now, (hey)
your kiss got me hoping you’ll save me right now (hey).
Looking so crazy, your love’s got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.
I’m looking so crazy in love’s got me looking, 
got me looking so crazy in love (I’m warmed up now, let’s go)

Rap

||: Dm N.C | N.C :|| x4
Young ‘Hov, y’all know when the flow is loco.
Young B and the R-O-C, uh oh (oh).
Ol’ G, big homey, the one and only.
Stick bony, but the pocket is fat like Tony Soprano (oh no).
The ROC handle like Van Axel.
I shake phonies, man, you can’t get next to.
The genuine article, I do not sing though.
I sling though, if anything, I bling yo.

| Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) |
A star like Ringo, war like a Green Beret, crazy bring ya whole set.

||: Dm N.C | N.C :|| x4
Jay Z in the Range, crazy and deranged.
They can’t figure him out, they like, “Hey, is he insane?”
Yes sir, I’m cut from a different cloth, my texture is the best fur, Chinchilla.
I been iller than chain smokers (uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no).
How you think I got the name Hova? I been realer, the game’s over (uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no).
Fall back, Young, ever since I made the change over (Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh, no, no).

Chorus 3

||: Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) :|| x3

I’m not myself, lately I’m foolish, I don’t do this.
I’ve been playing myself, baby, I don’t care.

Crazy In Love chords and progressions

Being in the key of Dm, but mainly moving between chords IV and IIx, Crazy In Love‘s chords are actually pretty unique.

The horn line has been indicated in brackets above as ||: Bb5 (D E F G F) | G5 (D E F G F) :||

Should you want to name the chords, using these notes it would be Bb5 Bb Bbadd#11 Bb6 Bbadd#11, and G5 G G6 G7 G6.

The initial 5 chords are what you as a guitarist play as the horns move up and down the Lydian mode for Bb, and the Mixolydian mode for G.

The G is actually a modal interchange, the chord should have been minor and Dorian, making it major, turns the mode into Mixolydian.

The Dm stabs, which make up the rest of the song are chord VI.
