"Wart Hog" as written by Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Johnny Ramone....
(Wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)

(Wart hog) I shot some dope, I feel so sick
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
Drugs and bitches and junkies and fags
Artificial phonies I hate it, hate it

Sick, sick, sick, it's the price I pay
It's a sick world, what can I say?
Bullshit scum, they desintegrate
They steal, they cheat, they take-take-take

(Wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)

(Wart hog) I want to puke, I can't sit still
There's sex and drugs in a nightmare world
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
It's a hopeless life, I hate it, hate it

It's the drugs and the lies and the ripoff bet?
It's an outlaw life, we're a renegade band
Drugs and bitches and commies and queers
Artificial phonies, I hate it, hate it

(Wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog)

(Wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog)

(Wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog, wart)
(Wart hog)

    General CommentI think this song reflects the way Dee Dee felt back in the 70s, when he was depressed and heavily screwed up on drugs. I don't think it was intended to be homophobic, but just paranoid.

    General CommentThat's the same with many Ramones songs. When I heard "All the girls are in love with me" in Teenage Lobotomy, I had no idea what it meant. But this is a really cool song, even if you can't understand it.

    General CommentPersonally, I think the line is:
    "It's an outlaw life for a renegade band"

    But I'm not absolutely positive. Good song though.
