No Bone Movies


Ozzy Osbourne

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Ozzy's bass player Bob Daisley wrote the lyric to this song, which is about a dislike of pornographic movies. Daisley got the idea after going to an adult film with Ozzy and their guitarist Randy Rhoads. Randy called it a "bone movie," which is a phrase Bob had never heard before, so he made it that basis for the song.
"Bodge" is British slang for breasts, hence the line "X-rated demon that lives in my head, hungry for bodge and he wants to be fed." (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada)
This is the only track on the Blizzard of Ozz album co-written by drummer Lee Kerslake. After Ozzy left Black Sabbath, he formed a band called Blizzard of Ozz with Bob Daisley and Randy Rhoads. They wrote most of the songs for the album before they had a drummer, but this one was composed after they selected Kerslake. The band became a solo project when the album was released and Ozzy Osbourne's name was printed on the cover in big letters next to a picture of the singer.

"Bone movies" was a term Randy and his friends used. The lyrics were written by Bob Daisley, not Ozzy.

I would just like to comment that the song is not necessarily about "how Ozzy can't stop watching porno". Most of Ozzy's songs are in first person, but it doesn't mean that they are necessarily about him, or his opinion. It is just a point of view, or subject he wants to call attention to. He introduces "characters" for that matter. For instance, he sings Mr. Tinkertrain. Does this mean that Ozzy is a child molestor? Hardly.

I had no idea what this song was about but I knew I loved it..."silver screen, such a disgrace, I couldn't look her straight in the face".....makes sense that its about porn and ones addition to it.

Erm, its just about an addiction to 'em. Not about his or anyone elses. just an addiction.

"Inspiration thats blue and uncut.."

The song is about how Ozzy can't stop watching porno, as in he wants to quit, but just can't.

Ozzy doesn't like pornos? But, he was watching one on an episode of the Osbournes.

"Let me smell the moon in your perfume..." It took a rough mix and an extra verse, but Steve found his "calling card" song, which is always the encore.
