About You're Driving Me Crazy

"You’re Driving Me Crazy" is an American popular song composed (music and lyrics) by Walter Donaldson in 1930 and recorded the same year by Lee Morse, Rudy Vallée & His Connecticut Yankees and Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians (with vocal by Carmen Lombardo). The song became a hit and was added to the 1930 musical comedy Smiles, starring Marilyn Miller and Fred and Adele Astaire. It was also recorded in 1930 by McKinney's Cotton Pickers and by Nick Lucas & His Crooning Troubadors. Nick Lucas's version, released on Brunswick, was a No. 7 hit: Brunswick 4987 (E-35404). The chords of "You're Driving Me Crazy" form the basis for Bennie Moten's great "Moten Swing." In 1931, cartoon character Betty Boop sang a sexy version of the song in the pre-code cartoon Silly Scandals. As Boop sang the song, her dress slipped down repeatedly, revealing a lacy bra and causing her to squeal. Later in the song, Betty was joined on stage by a line of mechanical dancing penguins who stomped out the beat in accompaniment to her singing.

You, you're driving me crazy.
What did I do?  What did I do?
My tears for you make everything hazy
Clouding the skies of blue.

How true were the friends who were near me,
to cheer me, believe me they knew
That you were the kind who would hurt me,
Desert me, when I needed you.

Yes, you, you're driving me crazy
What did I do to you.

How true were the friends who were near me,
to cheer me, believe me they knew
That you were the kind who would hurt me,
Desert me, when I needed you.
