The Bonecrusher

…still receives regular airplay in many parts of the country (the most regular being Johnny Walker’s 5pm spot on Fridays (KLBJ- -FM, 93.7 Austin), in addition to being included on the soundtrack of a nationally released NBA “Jams” video and the soundtrack of the American release of “Tekken”. The former is of note, in particular, because Walker always plays the full-length version of Bonecrusher, which was only made available to radio stations (though it features more verses and profanity than the LP version). Though Walker has received complaints about the content of the song, he continues to play it every Friday at 5 p.m. to celebrate the start of Austin’s weekend.

We’re willing to concede a couple of the lines may be wrong. We haven’t seen the lyrics printed out, so we translated it ourselves. This was the best we could come up with. These are the lyrics to the “extended version”.

Well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher and I live way out west
I’m a gambling’ man by nature but bonecrushin’s what I do best,
Yea well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher and I’ll crush your bones for a buck
I got a Ph.D. in knife fighting and saying fuck,

That’s what I’m sayin’, with the Bonecrusher all day
That’s what I’m sayin’

I’m the mighty Bonecrusher, yes I got some class
Took my funky RV to the White House and I parked it up on the grass,
I slipped inside the Oval Office, man I slipped in oh so fast
Got the President by his necktie and I wiped my funky ass,

That’s what I’m sayin’, with the Bonecrusher all day
That’s what I’m sayin’

Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
Askin’ nicely won’t help you don’t you know?
Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
You know I lost my hearing so long ago…

Big bad Bonecrusher, stand eleven foot tall
Line you perverts up like cans and watch me crush you all,
Well I say whatever I want to, don’t pay attention to grammar
Got a big long middle finger, shaped just like a ball-peen hammer,

That’s what I’m sayin’, with the Bonecrusher all day
That’s what I’m sayin’

Well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher, I just got back from Hell
Where I crushed the Devil and I fucked his wife & the little demons as well,
I got a big, bad bonecrushin’ snake that crawls up and down my back
I got a bad couple’a bulldogs that I keep high on crack,

That’s what I’m sayin’, with the Bonecrusher all day
That’s what I’m sayin’

Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
Askin’ nicely won’t help you don’t you know?
Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
You know I lost my hearing so long ago…

Now that I’ve grown, gonna crush everything I see,
Even the little, small flowers

(break)

Well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher, now don’t you get saucy with me
I got no concept of tenderness, I know that’s hard for you to believe,
Well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher, and I swear I was born to be
Well I’m gonna keep on crushin’til somebody crushes me,

I crushed my wife because I didn’t want to hit her
And I keep on smoking cause I don’t want to be no quitter,

Well I’m the mighty Bonecrusher, I crushed NYC
Wasn’t nearly half as bad as they make it look like on TV,
I jumped down from the Empire State, landed on my head
Got up and did a little funky dance, just to prove that I wasn’t dead yet,

That’s what I’m sayin’, with the Bonecrusher all day
That’s what I’m sayin’

Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
Askin’ nicely won’t help you don’t you know?
Say Bonecrusher, please don’t crush my bones
You know I lost my hearing so long ago…

So long ago, So long ago, So long ago…
