I got the devil in me

I got the devil in me

Gosh! I know what I like. Short ago the wife called me crazy, twice, and said, “Honey! Where is your common sense? Why don’t you grow up?” And for the holly virgin of crazy-land, and the holly father of manly men, is there an exorcist in the audience? I think I got the devil on me. Or is it that I like things that go fast?

I like things that go fast

Because I know that good things don't ever last

I like believing in what I want to

Don't like no one to tell me what to do

And I like the times that we've had

But I couldn't tell you what's good or bad

I'm only hoping that you understand

This feeling that I'm feeling when I'm holding your hand

I know what I like

I know what I like to do

I know what I like, well what about you?

More than one wife I know say to her honey, 'are you crazy or what ?' I doubt someone maybe define as 'or what', crazy most likely. But why is that some equal 'crazy' to been out of place, absurd, or maybe stupid. Craziness is more than that. Is inventive, diversion, is evolution, and inspiration. There is nothing wrong if you like the absurd or the sound of breaking glass.

I like the sound of breaking glass

And if you don't believe me, why do you ask?

I like leaving town, and coming back home

I'm going to show you, when we're all alone

And I like staying up all night

Watching old movies 'til the morning light

I don't pretend to know what's right or wrong

But I won't like leaving, if I stay here too long

I know what I like

I know what I like to do

I know what I like, well what about you?

It is common that the crazy transforms things, disagree with the game rules, with routine, and invent things that may change people’s life. These crazy; or radicals, defend their twisted points of view that may generate tendencies, and may open roads to innovation.


Famous French actress enthusiastically expresses her admiration:

“Believe, Monsieur Dalí, I admire you greatly.”

“Me too, Madame.”

“Ha! What an honour, the Monsieur has seen my work ? ” said the actress.

To what Salvador Dalí responds.

“I am not talking about you, Madame, but about me. I admire myself greatly too.”


We should all understand craziness as the dynamic to men kind evolution. And maybe the understanding will help us live in peace with crazy ideas, like those that pass us through daily. Maybe an idea is absurd today, but who knows tomorrow. We all maybe dead by then. Don’t get me wrong, you may like things that don’t change.

I like things that don't change

Because the more something changes, the more it stays the same

I might be simple, I take it easy sometimes

But I can be stubborn when I've made up my mind

I know what I like

I know what I like to do

I know what I like, well what about you?

Hey! Let’s be stubborn but not mediocre because mediocrity talks lauder, processes ideas as mixer, and turns everything into a deform mass. Mediocrity exterminates details, the taste of everything, and make us all equal.

And regretfully common sense too transforms everything into one thing, and often is a non-sense.


'The only difference between a madman and me, is that I am not mad.'

Salvador Dalí.


I know what I like, what about you?
