    "to come busted" idiom

    Hello,
    does anybody know what "to come busted" idiom means?
    For example,
    Ozzy Osbourne says : "Miracle man,come busted..." and so on :)

    Thank you in advance.

    It's not a standard idiom to "come busted."
    Busted means broken, or it means with no money.

    If you order a new product, you don't expect it to arrive broken - so you'd be upset if it came busted.

    I don't know the Ozzy Osbourne song - sorry.

    To Barb_D
    Thank you. I think Ozzy means a broken man who has no money.
