"Bad to the Bone" as written by Rolf Kasparek and Ian Hamilton Finlay....
Fifty years ago with the world at war
Hands bloodied - devestated
Better believe they're back for more
Pounding the world with a fist of steel
Jack booted, heavy handed
Careless of the pain we feel

Bastards - throwing life away
Killers - Alive today

(Chorus)

Woah-oh-oh-oh
Don't tell no lies
I see through your eyes
You're bad to the bone
Woah-oh-oh-oh
Don't tell no lies
You can't hear the cries
'Cos you're bad to the bone

Times have changed but he don't know
Zoot suit, black tie
Careless that the lies are low
One for all and all for one
Talking smooth - hidden truth
Time bomb ticking just begun

Bastards - throwing life away
Killers - Alive today

(Chorus)

Standing alone for the world to see
Non-starter - push harder
Be all that you can be!
He still believes his time will come
Small wonder - old thunder
Can't he see that he's wrong

Bastards - throwing life away
Killers - Alive today

(Chorus x2)

Bad to the bone!
