Lyrics:

A tattooed madman, I am hell on wheels
Born a wicked child left alone in the fields
My father was the wind, my mother was fire
Raised by the wolves and I grew up wild
A kamakazi man, a hollering "Banzai"
Never crash and born, never gonna die
Cannibal is me, ya squeal and shout
I chew ya up and spit ya out
Storms a c-c-coming and it's gonna be me
Here comes Trouble, with a capital "T"
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way, all the way
Chewbacca in the rye
The water of fire,
A terror in the flesh, a killer for hire
California man
I'm white line, "Homer"
The unruly one they call the "Blond Bomber"
Scooter gypsy, I'm a renegade
An orphan of the road
A live hand grenade
Never gonna quit before my time
When the moon gets high, then I'll be blind
Mad dog 20-20's king
I drink that stuff and start getting obscene
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way, all the way
I'm a motorcycle man
Don't never give a damn
I lie when the truth serves better
The Marquis De Sade
I cheat and steal and rob
A Heavy Metal Creature
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean motherfucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way
