Ramones - R.A.M.O.N.E.S. Lyrics

New York city, N.Y.C
Pretty mean when it wants to be
Black leather, knee-hole pants
Can't play no high school dance
Fuzz tone, hear 'em go, hear 'em on the radio

Misfits, twilight zone
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S

Bad boy rock, bad boy roll
Gabba gabba, see them go
C. Jay now hit the gas
Mark takes it up the ass
Go, Johnny, go, go, go
Go, Tommy o-way-o

Misfits, twilight zone
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S

Bad boys then, bad boys now
Good buddies, mau mau mau
Keep it up, rock n roll
Let the music save your soul
Dee dee, he left home
Joey calls me on the phone

Misfits, twilight zone
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S

  13. Lily Flower


  14. Adrian Pajamas

    I found the joey ramone version!!! Its on the, "weird tales of the ramones" cd

  15. El Choncho

    mark takes it up the ass

  16. Paynsicles Productions

    The Ramones are now Motoramones. A 5 piece.

    Aces Up My Sleeve

    Paynsicles Productions technically a six piece as the original drummer for Motörhead is also dead

    ArcadeAngel 81

    ive heard it. its in a live performance

  27. Roy Szweda

    The only thing wrong with this song is that it is too short... but then that is the point I suppose. It may be Lemmy's finest moment. Hope dah bruvvers and Lem n co are rocking the afterlife!

  28. HardRock93

    "Go Johnny go go go"
    I understood that reference

    Fresh Prince Of Darkness

    I don’t get the reference but damn, *Johnny be good* on that guitar!


    @Fresh Prince Of Darkness Joey and Johnny can't stand each other, because of Linda.

  38. Pera Detlić


  39. Myron Aruta

    whose cover is this?

    Dru Calling

    It's not a cover, CJ is singing instead of Joey.

    Juan David Jordán González

    Actually, it is a cover. The original Is by Motorhead.

  40. Captain Freedom

    0:36 "Mark takes it up the ass."

    joao henrique

    mark quick some ass * i thik

    Mr. NormalPuff

    at 1.25 speed that part killed me

  41. Kevin Mizell

    I think when Lemmy wrote " marky takes it up the ass " he's means where he sits to play drums. Lemmy was cool !


    Kevin Mizell that line was different in the original version written by Lemmy.


    in the lyrics it says hear marky kick some ass but clearly cj did a joke take and they used it on accident

  42. nigpil Woodbine

    bin sicher das ist Motörhead

  43. Sebastian Ramones

    Cj the best

  44. Dr_ Feelgood


  45. Adam Duke

    wWHO is this>>??/

  46. red drib

    Here's what I've always wondered: Why isn't Richie in the song?


    i guess because he was in the band for a really short while... like elvis ramone, too

    lord fuckwodd

    Don't forget Giles ramone

  47. melvin shermen

    Ramones version is better then möterhead

    melvin shermen

    Daniel Velazquez

    The Ramones & the cassualities come in different era. Ramones came first.

  55. incomprius

    Love the denial... Hear marky kick your ass? Hahaha this era Ramones only makes screeching weasel more legit. And hey, fuck you I love both bands

  56. Joey Ramone

    Don't ask me why CJ's singing instead of me, I don't remember how that ended up happening either


    Joey already sung it in the japanese version of adios amigos. At least know about their songs before trying to impresonate him.

    Aaron Ramone

  66. Geralt of Rivia

    Why does Marky takes it up the ass? Hhahaha, why are they making fun of him? Any answers?

    Ramones Music

    +DKJello Cj dated markys neice

    Geralt of Rivia

    @DKJello Yeah but how come Marky didn't object this? He is on drums here isn't he? 

    Ramones Music

    @Stormy Molnjavichen because johnny liked it, and what johnny likes, goes

    Geralt of Rivia

    @Ramones Music I thought Marky was pretty influential in the band. 


    Thats right old Johnny ran the group like a boot camp but he wrote very little of the music.

  67. escobar mohammed

    great song

  68. L. Salisbury

    In a 1995 (?) interview with ROX Lemmie said he'd love to tour with the Ramones! With the Damned as an opening act! Too bad that triple bill never materialized...!


    They toured with Ramones in South America though

    Steve McQueen

    Lemmy played in a version of the Damned for a few gigs in the late 70`s

    William Bowman

    Hate the Damned. As a lifelong punk, they're the one band i just couldn't stand. [hey that rhymes]
    Maybe a few others too.

  69. Kantankerous

    Just imagine: if the afterlife exists, then the Ramones and Lemmy are now together. God doesn't stand a fucking chance.


    lemmy is god

    Jason Kreitzer

    +God of Geckos:  God is rocking out to them.

    Admirał Hax

    +Jason Kreitzer Well said.

  70. Mario Kess

    Ramones du Motörhead sind die einzigen Hard Rock Bands die einem nichts vormachen. Leider sind die meisten schon tot. Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee und Lemmy RIP. Fuckin Rock´n Roll till the end. Born to rock. Viva FC St. Pauli and legalize them

    No Name Yet

    +Mario Kess I love you Germans.

    A cover of a tribute song.

  75. cshancock38

    I love that the lyrics say "Marky kick your ass" but for anyone who isnt deaf it clearly says "Mark takes it up the ass"

    max Vicious

    dardevVI hear Marky kick some ass

    Khaki Sellers



    It says that, I guess CJ didn't like and still don't like Marky lol


    Thank god I thought i was the only one who heard this

  76. leglo parcova

    Joey was a unique vocalist, C.J.'s vocal is a lot different.

    Gabriel Elstner

    +Rhapsodian Para mi es bueno CJ

    I Probably Dislike You

    To me CJ seems more Pop Punk in his vocals. Maybe Skate Punk.


    yeah i was thinking the same thing one of those days,CJ makes the whole song sound like it could be from a 90's pop punk band

    James Kiricov

    CJ was a good Ramone

  77. Yy Gh

    Ей а где Джоуи?:(((
