This song is about the feeling of love, describing how that euphoria can make you do crazy things. Or, as Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore described it less delicately to told us: "'Bonin' in the Boneyard,' that was about having sex, man. Bonin'. Everybody in high school, all the guys, they want to get the p--sy."
Fishbone's producer David Kahne had a hand in writing this song along with their bass player John Norwood Fisher and lead singer Angelo Moore. "I remember David was in the studio writing about that: My pole is in your hole, got me bonin', man," said Moore. "We were just sittin' around clownin' and writing it down. Oh, the gold rush."
A snippet of this song is used in the song "Good Time Boys" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
