YOU MAY BE RIGHT, by Billy Joel, is one of my favorite songs. It doesn’t matter to me what it means to him or anybody else who listens to it.
“You may be right, I may be crazy, but it might just be a lunatic you’re looking for…” something like that.
That’s it. That’s what I love about this song. The words, those words, were raw and pure. I can never remember them though. I just heard the song on the radio and had to go to You Tube to see if they had it. They did.
Those are the words that stuck out in that song – for me.
“You may be right, you may be wrong.”
