"Crusher" as written by and Daniel/ramone Rey....
Now I want to wrestle in the garden
I'm on my way to stardom
I know I'm ready, I know I'm great
But first I've got to get in shape!

Cause I got my eye on the Russian Bear
Gonna tear him up, I swear
This guy, thinks he's the champion
Gonna take his belt, gonna beat him!

I'm the Crusher, king of the ring (4x)
I'm ready for a match with the Russian Bear
Gonna pile drive him, pull his hair
I might have a foreign object in my trunks
I might have to use, on that punk!

Got the hardest hold you can put on anyone
If you're my victim you're beaten
I'm a lean, mean, fighting machine
Powerful and strong, like King Kong!

I'm the Crusher, king of the ring (4x)
Started having second thoughts I was scared as hell
The last thing I wanted was me hearing the bell
I mean the Russian Bear, could probably tear
Me limb from limb
He'd probably grin be real happy with himself
This is not, good for my health
I'm not comin' outta this dressing room
And get beaten up, by that goon!

Go back to Russia
Go back home
Don't want to get a broken bone
Or a lump on my head
I ain't gonna hide under the bed!

I'm the Crusher, king of the ring [Repeat x4]
I'm the Crusher (Crusher!) [Repeat x2]

    General CommentCJ is a damn good singer. Wouldn't you agree? He should have sang more than he did. This song is a cool sort of story about a wrestler but I didn't need to tell you that, everyone that's heard this song can tell from the start. I love the turn around the crusher has, kinda funny.

    General CommentThere's a funny story about this song. When Dee Dee left the band, he went on to start a (godawful) rap career. Needless to say, it didn't last very long, and by one album, he started writing for the Ramones, again. The Ramones suggested they covered The Crusher, as it was their favourite song on the album. They changed the lyrics a little and made it more guitar-heavy. Dee Dee liked the cover so much, he played it like the Ramones version on his Solo punk album, Hop Around.
