Chicks love to hang this song over guys’ heads.  Like, guys are supposed to feel all honored that their girlfriends are crazy?  It’s a total bunch of crap.  And in nine out of ten cases, the answer is yes.  Yes.  The guy is “strong” enough to be your man.  The more important question is what is the crazy woman doing to make the crazy worth it.  Guys have huge capacity for crazy.  Abraham Lincoln was President and had to fight a whole war and his wife was batshit.  Then again he won the war so maybe having a crazy woman helps.

History is probably full of examples of guys with crazy wives doing great things.  Henry the 8th had so many wives one of them had to have been crazy.  P.T. Barnum.  Jesus.  The list goes on and on.  So next time you are a woman and thinking this song really “nails it” like that Marmaduke cartoon you have in your cube, remember that your man is plenty strong and if you are good to him then you can be as crazy as you want.  Except no knives.  Unless they are sexy.

Sheryl Crow – Strong Enough

God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I’d be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing’s true and nothing’s right
So let me be alone tonight
‘Cause you can’t change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I’ll believe
Lie to me
But please don’t leave
Don’t leave
Don’t leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
Just try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?
My man

Are you strong enough to be my man?
Are you strong enough to be my man?
Are you strong enough my man?

When I’ve shown you that I just don’t care
When I’m throwing punches in the air
When I’m broken down and I can’t stand
Would you be man enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I’ll believe
Lie to me
But please don’t leave
