Thin and long
He was a ticking bomb

Gutter Mouth
Bred in the deeper South

Billy Bones
As he was always known
Was a horror of a human being

Hand grenades
Rockets and razor blades

Fifty tins
Of nitro glycerine

Billy Bones
Spent all his time a lone
Lost in pyrotechnic dreams

Billy Bones
What an awful creature
(Billy Bones...)
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
'Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things

Breaking news
Billy has blown his fuse

Out of hell
Into a padded cell

Billy Bones
Throwing sticks and stones
When the doctors came to take him in
(What a naughty boy...)

Billy bones
What an awful creature
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things

Billy Bones
What an awful creature
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
(What an awful creature)
Billy Bones
(Better get the preacher)
Billy Bones
(What an awful creature)
Billy Bones
