Motorhead - Walk A Crooked Mile Lyrics

If you were in the movies,
Who would you play?
If you were tried for murder
What could you say?
And if you were out to lunch
What would you eat?
We wanna know the answers
Who do you want to beat?

Don't show your fear,
Keep it out of site,
Don't loose your place in here
And you might be all right

Don't say nothing shut your mouth
Out of time work it out
You're leaving in a cruel world
And your face is out of style
Boogey man, magic word,
Walk a crooked mile.

If you were Armageddon
Who would you spare?
If you were judge and jury,
Why would you care?
And if you were out of breath
How would you breathe?
The world deserves the answers,
What do you have up your sleeve?

Can't show your hand
Find another way,
Can't play that ace in here,
Never see another day.

Plead no contest, pass the buck,
Running scared, you ain't so tough
We hold rehearsal for your death
We're tired of your smile
Boogey man, see what you get
Walk a crooked mile.

Standing in the spotlight,
What would you need?
If you were a soldier,
How would you bleed?
And if you were in the rain,
What would you wear?
We're hungry for the answers,
Don't seem right, bu we don't care.
Don't bring your friends,
Send them all away
Don't meet your end in here,
Don't throw your life away.

Don't you change, don't drop your guard,
Double bluff throw down your cards,
Death has put his mark on you
Man and boy and child,
Boogey man, back to start
Walk a crooked mile.

  16. Simply_Blue

    I get a feeling that this album would go perfectly with those gruesome early 2000’s torture porn horror movies.

  17. Katy Kats

    Forgive me I don't mean to be stupid but could anyone shed some light on the meaning of this song absolutely love Lemmy and Motorhead. His songs are like the greatest poetry ever written but just like in college poetry class sometimes I fail to decipher the meaning this one has stumped me for years.

    I loved this album. There wasn’t an album Motörhead did that I didn’t like. I love Lemmy’s inimitable style a man who can make albums with as diverse sounds as On Parole, Another Perfect Day and Hammered.

  66. Felclaw

    To the 20 people who "disliked" this song, Snaggletooth will impale you with him tusks and then make you walk a crooked mile!


    A lot of people hated this song when it came out because of the very melodic chorus. Lemmy himself admitted that people flat-out told him they didn't like it.

    Kris Sisu

    F 'em! This song is amazing!! @Bleak5170

  67. Albert Anvil

    I never heard this album before, but by default I knew that I were going to love it, and I'm doing. Motörhead is the law.

    Pom Pom7x7

  84. K3yBoardMani4c

    I really dig this more melodic approach they took on Hammered, it's very different compared to the other albums.


    +K3yBoardMani4c Yeah, gotta love their ever so slight diversity with every album!

    Jerzy Dziś

    K3yBoardMani4c alternative

    Until it Sleeps

    Exactly, like Sacrifice is very thrash metal and Another Perfect Day is a bit proggy.

    John H

    @Until it Sleeps Another Perfect Day had Brian Robertson ex Thin Lizzy which is why lemmy never liked it, well either Brian or the end result, I do though but whatever!


    K3yBoardMani4c The Melodic sound was very definitive to the early 2000’s

  85. Iron Rottweiler

    Motorhead - Greatest band ever
    Bigger than Iron Maiden and Fakealica

    Havin Hadburger

    +john m cancer

    Harninder 1

    +john m about 3 days before your comment


    +john m You could definitely say greatest, but saying they're bigger than Maiden and Metallica is quite a stretch, Motorhead isn't the biggest, but who cares because it doesn't change the quality of their music

    Bravo Travo

    +crazycamkalani it's not a big claim who started the double kicker thrash drum style Philthy animal philosophy Taylor you listen to Lars and he even says Philthy and Motorhead invented thrash you watch int

    Bravo Travo

    +crazycamkalani it's not a big claim who started the double kicker thrash drum style Philthy animal philosophy Taylor you listen to Lars and he even says Philthy and Motorhead invented thrash you watch interviews with Cliff and he even said that Lemmy was his number one influence so Motorhead bigger I'm yes vote grandfather of thrash Philthy most definite overkill first official thrash song prove me wrong

  86. Paul Chester

    gotta love the true rawness

    Vinyl Diary666

    Always! \m/

  87. Jens Neborowski

    Complitly underrated....I love it

  88. Roger Demaine

    There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
    He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
    He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
    And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

    Tim Perks

    Roger Demaine when i saw congering 2 i knew that came right from moterhead..r.ip Lemmy


    @Tacklecentral Fishing Xo5 Her pussy was crooked

    Hgjjjcgj Bguj ki

    Tacklecentral Fishing Xo5 maybe he was so crooked that he was bent

    Yasmina Valls

    @Tim Perks i thought it came from Agatha Christie, and she took it from a popular english song... 🤔

    Kittelizer Laurelott

    He wasn't crooked. He got BENT.

  89. Manti Core

    You don't even know.......(shakes head) whats coming

  92. spittinslim

    seems to me that this album was produced lousily.


    +spittinslim how so?


    Damn millennial.

  93. kevin hanson

    Anyone talking shit on Motörhead, for any reason at all, you better not do it in my presence.

    badass mofo

    same goes here, im no tkugh guy and id happily give or take a beating defending motorheadds legacy

    Nicky -73-

    kevin hanson Let anyone talk shit about anything and don't worry about it. Lemmy could handle himself. He didn't need you to defend him. I grew up where he did and you get rained on a lot. He gave what he had to give. Take it or leave it and leave others in peace. I know Lemmy would've wanted it that way.

    Fredo Bulsara

    You better run

    Kristina Daniel

    I agree bro

    Tyrone Jones

    So you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're", but you're going to try to act like a condescending intellectual. lol

    If you were in the movies, Who would you play? If you were tried for murder What could you say? And if you were out to lunch, what would you eat? We wanna know the answers Who do you want to beat? ... Who and what ...

    Think hes talking in 3rd person about himself
