Overview

Lyrics

Bone On Bone (ver. 5)

You thought you'd make it out
Oh man, how you were wrong
This place is bone on bone
No room for hangers-on

We're all survivors here
And if you're not, you die
Piss off those weaklings
They gotta squint their eye

Here all the men are men
And not a woman cries
There ain't no kids at all
'Cause all the children died

We used to eat fresh strawbs
On Sunday afternoons
But then they took me here
I got hard real soon

This place is bone on bone
So you better get back to your kitchen
This place is bone on bone
So you better get back to your home

No room for whiners here
They'll take your head right off
Nobody wants to hear
Some bitches sounding off

You gotta take it all
With a big stiff upper lip
Just like the British did
Way back in World War I
Way back in World War I

This place is bone on bone
So you better get back to your kitchen
This place is bone on bone
So you better get back to your home

Beautiful music
Beautiful singing
Beautiful laughter
Beautiful dreaming
But under the sheen I'm still a disaster
I'm trying, dying
