This is in the UD from 2006, because I put to there. I've now finally found
an independent cite:

"I've got a love jones
 For your body and your skin tone
 Five minutes alone
 I'm already _on the bone_"

Clifford "Method Man" Smith. All I Need. Def Jam Records, November 15, 1994

Naturally, I've known this expression since ca. 1947.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
