"Bonkers" as written by Dylan Kwabena Mills and Armand Van Helden....
I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
Everybody says that I gotta get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

Bonkers

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
Everybody says that I got to get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Bonkers

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
Everybody says that I got to get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nothin' crazy about me

    General CommentMan!!!!
    I f**kin' love this tune. I've gotta be honest, I'd never really listened to much of Dizzee Rascal's song's before this cause it's not really the kind of music that I'm into but from the very 1st time I heard Bonkers, I just love it.

    It's one of those tracks, I suppose that you're either gonna love it or hate it but when I listen to it, it just makes me want to go mental!!!!

    The lyrics are quality. "I let sanity give me the slip!!" hehehehehe!!!

    I suppose it just sums up exactly how I feel as do, millions of other people about music. I'm into trance but it's exactly the same, regardless of what kind of music you're into.

    "A Heavy Bassline is my Kind of Silence!!!!!"

    General Commentno its basically about dizzee bein a prick and making a bad impression on young kids.
    "And all I care about is sex and violence" is not something that impressionable children should be hearing.

    General Commentonly 5 (well, now 6...) comments?! wow!
    anyways, i sort of agree with kibby3188. it well could be about dizzee saying that 'yes, i knows i'm a total prick, or i'm BONKERS, and giving kids the wrong impression.' he's just repeating what people think of him in first instead of third?
    look at this, i've just replace all the i's and stuff with dizzee's.

    Dizzee wake up, every day is a daydream
    Everything in his life isn't what it seems
    He wakes up just to go back to sleep
    Dizzee Rascal act real shallow but i think he's in in too deep
    And all Dizzee care about is sex and violence
    And a heavy bass line is his kind of silence
    Dizzee has got to get a grip
    But he just lets sanity give him the slip


    Some people think Dizzee Rascal's bonkers
    But he just think he's free
    Man, he's just living his life
    There's nothing crazy about me
    Some people pay for thrills but he gets his for free
    Man, he's just living his life
    There's nothing crazy about me

    General Commenthey if you guys think this music is a bad influence on kids then DON'T LET THEM LISTEN TO IT. it's very simple, I mean, it wasn't aimed at kids or written for kids.
