  • Lyrics
  • Screams break the silence
    Waking from the dead of night
    Vengeance is boiling
    He's returned to kill the light
    Then when he's found who he's looking for
    Listen in awe and you'll hear him

    Bark at the moon

    Years spent in torment
    Buried in a nameless grave
    Now he has risen
    Miracles would have to save
    Those that the beast is looking for
    Listen in awe and you'll hear him

    Bark at the moon

    Hey, bark at the moon

    They cursed and buried him Along with shame
    And thought his timeless soul had gone
    In empty burning Hell-unholy one
    But now he's returned to prove them wrong

    So wrong, uh yeah baby

    Howling in shadows
    Living in a lunar spell
    He finds his heaven
    Spewing from the mouth of hell

    And when he finds who he's looking for
    Listen in awe and you'll hear him
    Bark at the moon
    Yeah bark at the moon
    Yeah bark at the moon

  • Jodie from XxBob Daisley is such a talented guy. He has written so many great lyrics for Ozzy. Greg Dana Strum from Slaughter is the one who introduced Randy to Ozzy, not Sharon.
  • Michael from Santa Cruz, Ca"Listen in awe,and you'll hear him...Bark at the moon...".One of My favorite lyrics...
  • Greg from Slidell, Laozzy wouldnt hav even started a solo career if it werent 4 sharon.after he got kicked out of sabbath he drank and got high all day until sharon hooked him up with rhoads.then his career took off...if it werent 4 sharon we would stil b listening 2 sabbaths slow ass riffs instead of amazing songs like this
  • Robert from Atlanta, GaIf you ask me, there is nothing scarier than a werewolf that is also a ghost! anyway, this song is awesome!
  • Donald from Corpus Christi, TxThis song is in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on V-Rock.
  • Vic from Melbourne, AustraliaActually, it was Bob Daisley (again) who wrote the lyrics for "Bark at the Moon". Bob and Jake E Lee got together in New York to write and work on the music. Jake NEVER tried to sound like Randy, I think he did a great job in his own style, especially considering what he was up against. For the record, Bon Scott and Bob Daisley were great mates before Ozzy ever met Bon. It was BOB who wrote the song "Suicide Solution", but it wasn't about Bon Scott, it was about Ozzy drinking himself to death.
  • Josh from Detroit, MiActually, Suicide Solution was written by Bob Daisley before Bon Scott died. It was written about how Ozzy was drinking himself to death. Ozzy and Sharon have told many lies regarding the writing of the first five Ozzy albums.
  • Soutiman from Mumbai, IndiaThe song rocks absolutely. Superb energy.
  • Lester from New York City, NyBrad Gillis (of Night Ranger) was Ozzy's guitarist on the live album 'Speak of the Devil'.
  • Tom from Chicago, Ilbest song ozzy sings
  • Josh from Las Vegas, NvSuicide Solution was a tribbute to the death of AC/DC's Bon Scott, a friend of Ozzy. (Also one Of my Idols!)
  • Jason from Dover, PaBest Ozzy Solo Song Ever
  • Brian from Paoli, InFrom Tony Iommi, to Randy Rhoads, then to Jake E Lee, and now Zakk Wylde. Ozzy has had some of the best guitarist ever.
