"Black Bart Blues" as written by and Dickinson Harris....
'What the fuck is that?'
'Hi, guys, are you in a band or something?
I mean it would be so cool
If you were in a band 'cause you're
Driving a big bus with band on the front of it'
'Why don't you shut up and get on board will ya?'
'Wow! I have it here you got a stereo and a microwave
And, and you got a beer,
I'd like a Heineken if you've got one'
That's real cool, that's great, yeah!'
'Would you like to see Black Bart?'
'Who's Black Bart?'
'Let me introduce you'

Black Bart's seen it
Black Bart knows
Black Bart's done it
The Black Bart blues
Suspended in suspension
Medieval nights in Tennessee, and elsewhere
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart's truckin' ain't what it seems
Black Bart's lookin'
Don't know where she's been
Maybe she's an acrobat
Spends her evenings dancing on a pole
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart tried most anything
Black Bart liked it but he couldn't sing
So he asked me to tell ya
Try it for yourself and you will see
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

'What did you do that for?'
'I'm sorry, I just, I guess I'm not used to...
'Shut up and get on with it will you'

Black Bart's livin' across the ocean now
Black Bart's lookin' to come back somehow
So if you are a dancer,
You could dance his pole in May
That's a maypole

Black Bart's coming
Now Black Bart's gone
Black Bart did it so I wrote this song
Whatever and however,
In and out or several at a time mmm yes!
We all got to do the Black Bart blues
Here comes the guitar solo

We all got to try the Black Bart blues
Yowsa! Yowsa! Yowsa!

    General CommentSupposedly Bruce Dickinson saw a suit of armor on display somewhere in the US (a gas station?) and convinced the original owner to sell it to him. They kept it in the back of the tour bus and had sex with groupies with it sitting there, hence this song.

    General CommentWell, it obviously has mention of Black Bart. Black Bart is a gentleman theif in America in the late 1800s sort of a common day robin hood who gave to the poor, he was eventually captured and died in prison.

    General CommentIf I'm not mistaken, I heard a story somewhere that this song was not just inspired by the suit of armor but by an incident where a drunk girl stumbled onto the band's tour bus looking for food and alcohol. Bruce, who was there alone at the time, struck a deal with her that he'd give her booze in exchange for a blow job. Apparently the (lucky!) girl agreed to the terms and they did it in the back lounge of the bus, with the suit of armor sitting there.
