Them bones, them bones, them dry bones
Now they're the working of the Lord

Bones are heard of, but seldom seen
Except each year around Halloween
But I've got a shockeroo
Right now there's a skeleton locked up inside of you! (Ha-ha-ha)

Minus bones you're just a blob
Being framework's their main job
All your organs, muscles, too
They need your bones to hold them safe and sound inside for you
Your heart and lungs are tucked away
In there behind your ribs
Those bones have been protecting them
Since we were little kids

Look out! Here comes a bonehead play!
Birding his brain (tweet, tweet, tweet) what a day!

Don't take much to overwhelm it
But luckily those bones up there work like a built-in helmet!

Shin bone connected to the knee bone
(That means the tibia connects to the patella)

Knee bone connected to the thigh bone
(That means the patella connects to the femur)
And here's how they really fit together

Ligaments are what link bone to bone
Cartilage that cushions in between
Muscles hook on by the tendons
So here's what's happening in your knees
Most every time you bend them

Now there's a lot of skeleton
We never get to see
But it holds other little parts
That show quite obviously
I'm talking about those thirty-two
That we all call our teeth
We got to feed them right and keep them clean
Or they can come to grief (OUCH! Ow!)

So please remember
You've got to do it while you're young
Feed your bones some good old calcium
Drinking milk - a glass or two
Will help your bones to stay in shape
And do their job for you

(Your skeleton)
It's a framework (yes, yes) holding you together
Shielding organs, yeah, that's its job, too!

    My InterpretationThis song is a much deeper meaning then the lyrics give on I believe it's about the singers heroin addiction and his bones inside him are really him trying to get out of the body he is trapped inside
