Osmonds – Crazy Horses lyrics

There's a message floating in the air
Come from crazy horses riding everywhere
It's a warning, it's in every tongue
Gotta stop them crazy horses on the run
What a show, there they go, smoking up the sky, yeah
Crazy horses all got riders and they're you and I
Crazy horses, crazy horses
Never stop and they never die
They just keep on puffin'
How they multiply?
Crazy horses, will they never halt?
If they keep on moving then it's all our fault
What a show, there they go, smoking up the sky, yeah
Crazy horses all got riders and they're you and I

So take a good look around, see what they've done
What they've done, they've done, they've done, they've done, they've done, they've done, they've done
Crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses, crazy horses

    Think this song is about mad, rabid, fire-breathing horses? Think again - it's really about automobiles and the air pollution they were generating back when this song was written (1972). Cars were running on leaded gas and they really were "smoking up the sky," especially in metropolitan areas like Los Angeles. Fortunately, now that most cars run on unleaded gas, air quality has noticeably improved. (Diesel engines are still a health hazard, unfortunately.)

    Why horses? Because the term "horsepower" is used to measure the strength of piston engines, the kind that automobiles use. "Crazy horses all got riders and they're you and I" - riders = drivers and passengers.

    Bottom line: This was a protest song against air pollution caused by car exhaust fumes.
