The Rascal King
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Lyrics


Well he was fueled by a lack
Drew inspiration from a need
So many problems to crack
And mouths to feed
Crooked was the path
And brazen was the walk
A cocky swagger, up the ladder
And could he ever talk
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
The love of God
And constant contradictions
With just a smile, wink or nod
What's stranger, fact or fiction?
And never ceasing to amaze
On a regular basis
First hand into his pocket
Or first fist into the faces
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
A legendary character
When? Only then
Where? Only there
A hero or a hooligan?
Well, that part's never clear
Pride or shame, it's all the same
Who's innocent and who's to blame?
Politics or just a game?
Well in the end they knew his name
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them

Well he was fueled by a lack, drew inspiration from a need.
So many problems to crack and mouths to feed.
Crooked was the path, and brazen was the walk.
A cocky swagger, up the ladder, and could he ever talk.

The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again.
The Rascal King behind the bars
or the one in front of them.

The love of God and constant contradictions,
With a smile, wink, or nod.
What's stranger, fact or fiction?
And never ceasing to amaze me on a regular basis.
First hand in his pocket or first fist into the faces.

The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again.
The Rascal King behind the bars
or the one in front of them.

A legendary character.
When? Only then.
Where? Only there.
A hero or a hooligan? Well, that part's just never clear.
Pride or shame, it's all the same.
Who's innocent or who's to blame?
Politics or just a game?
Well in the end they knew his name.

The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again.
The Rascal King behind the bars
or the one in front of them?

GOOD SONG❗️❤️

& Here’s A Quote
From ‘The Billionaire’s Trust’
Via Ms. Swann:

“Money, Power, Control -
None Of It Mattered
When Weighed Against
The Love
Of A Good Woman.”

Well he was fueled by a lack
Drew inspiration from a need
So many problems to crack
And mouths to feed
Crooked was the path
And brazen was the walk
A cocky swagger, up the ladder
And could he ever talk
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
The love of God
And constant contradictions
With just a smile, wink or nod
What's stranger, fact or fiction?
And never ceasing to amaze
On a regular basis
First hand into his pocket
Or first fist into the faces
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
A legendary character
When? Only then
Where? Only there
A hero or a hooligan?
Well, that part's never clear
Pride or shame, it's all the same
Who's innocent and who's to blame?
Politics or just a game?
Well in the end they knew his name
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The Rascal King behind the bars
Or the one in front of them

I need to meet the guy who edited this. He cut on the clauses like a friggin beast and kept the pacing up the whole time with perfect continuity. Well done sir

Alex Morgan

Honestly it took me to reading the comments before I realized this was cut from a 50's movie. I just thought they had good casting.

@GroundUpProduct most everything is cut/edited to the timing of the music. Even to the point where the mob boss tapping his pen is to the beat, he finishes his dance at the end of the breakdown before going back into the chorus, etc.

My high school aged daughter saw the Bosstones at a concert yesterday. She said she was the youngest one by far that was dancing and singing the words. Somebody asked her how she knew these guys, and she credited me. Made my day when she told me about it!

Goal Digger

Time flies...... met you in the concert besides the gate...
