 DJ Punky Bones

When I was growing up as a lovable London lad
Back in the late 1980's and 90s, dance music was the fad
The acid smiley face and the trance warehouse venues
Where getting totally off your face was your choice too choose
Now around this time a DJ called Frankie Bones from Chicago
Was reshaping the dance scene, playing hardcore techno
Across the sea, in London in 1994, I was just starting university
Where I required the nickname ‘Punky'
In the halls I was living in I met this young man
Who was 2 rooms down from me, whose name was Dan
He was from Liverpool and he became a really good mate
And I used stay in his room practising DJ'ing till very late
He taught me all the tricks
Especially how to mix
I spent all my money on buying vinyl dance tunes
And DJ'd in other students rooms
Then Dan became the university entertainments boss
And handed me loads of DJ'ing Jobs
So all I needed now was a name
So I added the Bones from ‘Frankie' and ‘Punky' my nickname
DJ Punky Bones was now born and ready to rock the clubs
And for three years I played around other universities and London pubs
From hard house too trance and techno
I was spinning tunes and putting on a show
I then finished university and went back to live in Ealing
And sold my decks to fund my travelling
But now 10yrs on, when I find myself with nothing to loose
I have turned to my old records and not the booze
The return of Punky Bones has reared his head
And out have come all my records from under my bed
One gig a month should clear my debts I owe
So I will be playing in a club near you soon? Well you never know?
