One Night
I ain't got no money, but I sure got style
And if you got the time, girl, I'll show you how to smile
Come on make your mind up, ooh baby take a chance
Before this night is over, I'll show you how to dance, yeah

You like the danger, it's in your eyes, I can see it there
Throw your dance with a stranger, kiss him goodbye, yeah, bye bye baby

Chorus:
One night ain't no love affair, but I won't ask no more from you
One night with you anywhere, heaven knows what we can do

So sophisticated, I like the way you dress
The way you move your body, ooh, baby I'm obsessed
I don't want no lifetime, I just want tonight
Come on, take a chance, girl, I know you know it's right, yeah

I've got this feeling, it's feelin' so strong, when I first saw you
You've got me reelin', don't prove me wrong, oh come on, baby

(chorus)

(Solo)

Yeah, you like the danger, it's in your eyes, I can see it, baby
You took a chance with a stranger, kiss him goodbye, bye bye baby

(chorus)back to top
Shake It Up
I'm so blind, ooh I just can't see, what kind of love you expect from me
Let me know, you gotta sort this out
Come on babe, I've had enough of this doubt

I thought I knew what you wanted, just goes to show I was wrong
I'm twice the man that ya, you think I am, this time I'm gonna be strong, yeah

Chorus:
Shake it up - ooh yeah, put the world to right
Shake it up - this gotta be, babe, that's alright
Shake it up - yeah baby, you ran out of luck
Shake it up - yeah yeah yeah

Whoo, you don't know, ooh what you've done for me
You built me up, baby, can't you see
Don't seem right that after all this time
I found out you're no friend of mine

You knew that sooner or later, you knew it deep in your heart
All the troubles that ya, you gave to me, babe
Were gonna tear us, tear us apart

(chorus)

You had me searchin' for answers, you had me livin' from day to day
I guess you ran out of chances, whoo babe, there was no other way

(Solo)

I thought I knew what you wanted, just goes to show I was wrong
I'm twice the man that ya, you think I am, this time I'm gonna be strong, yeah

(chorus repeats out)back to top
No Smoke Without A Fire
Ooh, you're like a book with a page torn out
You can turn from a whisper to a shout, ooh yeah
You come running just as fast as you can, into the arms of another man, yeah

But you can do what you wanna do now, tell me what you wanna say
You can take what you wanna take, babe, take it all away

Chorus:
Oh, there's no smoke without a fire, and there's no heat without a flame
Oh, there's no love without desire, but I won't play your games

Ooh, you've got the looks that can turn a head
You've got a turn that can leave a man dead, ooh yeah
You keep tellin' me our love is alright
You disappear, you don't come home all night

Just tell me what you wanna do now, tell me where you wanna go
It's your life, you can do what you want, baby let me know

(chorus)

Please don't ask me why
'Cos I can't quite explain, I'm like a moth to your flame

(Solo)

Yeah, just tell me what you wanna do now, tell me where you wanna go
It's your life, you can do what you want, baby let me know, yeah

(chorus) - let's talk about it

(chorus repeats out)back to top
Bad Man
I take what I want, I take what I need, ooh yeah
I do what I like, I like what's right for me, ooh yeah

You might think that you're gonna change me, ooh girl, don't even try
So many others tried so hard to tame me, so many others cried
I'm tellin' you baby

Chorus:
I'm a bad bad man, that's what I am, I'm bad for you
I'm a bad bad man, oh yes I am, so whatcha gonna do?

I say what I mean, I mean what I say, ooh yeah
You should know me by now, I like my own way, ooh yeah

You might think I can't live without you, ooh but girl you'd be wrong
'Cos I know whatever we've got here, it won't last too long
I'm tellin' you baby

(chorus)

You think it's just a game I'm playin', ooh wait 'til I begin
Just listen hard to these three words I'm sayin', you can't win, you can't win

(Solo)

Ooh yeah, you might think that you're gonna change me, oh girl, don't even try
So many others tried too hard to tame me, so many others cried
I'm tellin' you baby

(chorus)

I'm a bad bad man, oh yes I am, so whatcha gonna do about it?
I'm a bad bad man, that's what I am, too bad for you
I'm a bad bad man...back to top
Dangerous Age
She's gettin' ready to dance tonight
Black high heels, a dress that clings on tight
Skin so smooth, a young man's dream
Lips so red, she's only just sixteen, yes she is

She knows where to go, she knows all the wildest parts of town
She walks in real slow, baby, ooh and every man's head turns around

Young girl has found her stage, watch out, she's a dangerous age
Headline news, front page, ooh girl, you're a dangerous age, yeah

She don't care what her parents say
She's out all night, holdin' 'til break of day, yeah
So outrageous, she's dressed to kill
And everybody, the girl just loves to thrill, ooh you know she does

She knows all the tricks, she got all the moves and words to say
She's livin' with kicks, livin' to dance the night away

Young girl has found her stage, watch out, you're a dangerous age
Headline news, front page, ooh girl, you're a dangerous age

(Solo)

She'll play your fire, yeah she'll play you things you won't understand
She wants to get high, yeah, she's a star, she's got it all planned, oh yeah

Young girl has found her stage, watch out, she's a dangerous age
Headline news, front page, ooh girl, you're a dangerous age
You're a dangerous age, ooh yeah, you're a dangerous age

Dirty Boy
Whoa yeah!

She came walking in like a vision, everybody's school boy dream
Ooh yeah, she could be my teacher, ooh yeah, she could be my queen

Me and the boys, we stopped talking, she came walking through
And one by one the subject got around, yeah, got around to you, thank God

I've got no secrets, I've got no clue
And all I really wanna do, is get next to you
You know what the world's about, and I'll be your dirty boy

Well your clothes are made by designers, you only wear the best perfume
You're so cold and chique, yeah, you're so unique
But when it comes to me, don't think that you're immune, no

I've got no answers, I've got no doubt
I know you wanna show me baby, what the world's about
Don't treat me like I broke your toy, and I'll be your dirty boy

I wanna be your dirty boy, be your dirty boy...back to top
Rock Of America
She knocked down my money, she knocked down my fame
Just wanna feel I'm a part of the game
On the radio, on tv, it's like a heartbeat deep inside of me

Know what I want, know how to get, it's like the sound of a hot Corvette
Start it up, let it roll, come on baby, let's lose control

Ooh yeah, I wanna live it up, ooh yeah, don't wanna give it up, oh no

I wanna rock the rock of America, yeah baby rock the rock of America, ooh yeah

I hear the beat everywhere, smalltown streets, union squares
Every city's got that sound, it's in the open, not underground
Turn it up all the way, you can't escape it, it's here to stay
Sounds like thunder in my soul, come on babe, let's lose control

Ooh yeah, I wanna live it up, ooh yeah, don't wanna give it up now, no no

I wanna rock the rock of America, yeah baby rock the rock of America, ooh yeah

(Solo)

Ooh yeah, I wanna live it up, ooh yeah, don't wanna give it up now, no

I wanna rock the rock of America, yeah rock the rock of America
An' I've gotta rock the rock of America, you know what I want
Rock the rock of America, yeahback to top
Something About You
I've only known what it is to be lonely
When into my life, you came walking through
Can this be real, I don't know what I'm feeling

Ooh, there's something 'bout you

And I can't believe the way that you know me
You sense every mood, ooh you know when I'm blue
But here in my heart, ooh there's mixed up emotions

Ooh, there's something 'bout you

I never wanted anybody, and I won't start now
I never planned it, I don't understand it, so tell me what can I do
Don't turn away, ooh I think I'm still learning

Yeah, there's something 'bout you

(Solo)

Ooh, here in my heart, ooh there's mixed up emotions

But there's something 'bout you
You know there's something 'bout you
There's something 'bout you, you came shining through, babe
Now there's something 'bout you, I don't know, I don't know what I'm feeling
There's something 'bout you, I don't know, I don't know
Yeah there's something 'bout youback to top
The Way That It Goes
That's the way it goes

I've been waiting for the perfect woman, to come and rescue me
Well there she is and I can almost touch her, oh, but I just can't speak

Whoo yeah

Chorus:
Sometimes that's just the way that it goes, some you win, some you lose
Sometimes that's just the way that it goes, there ain't much you can do

I've been dreamin' 'bout a '50 Shevy, dry and red of gleaming chrome
Saved up my money and bought some beat up wagon, ooh but now I'm walking home

Don't you know - (chorus)

They say that life's the luck to the draw, well I ain't had no cards
I only know that nothing's for sure, and the only luck's hard

(Solo)

Cars and girls on an endless highway, the all American dream
Girl I'd better try, yeah try and find it, and it ain't what it seems

Don't you know - (chorus) (repeats 2x)

Sometimes...back to top
Love Attack
You hit me with a body blow, you hit me fast, then you hit me slow
You knock me out with the way you look
You have me hanging, baby, on your hook

I think about you all day and all night, my friends all swear I'm going insane
Now I don't care who is wrong or who's right, 'cos you're the cure for my pain

Chorus:
I'm coming down with a love attack, I surrender, I can't turn back
Coming down with a love attack, stay with me the rest of my life

Lay a little love on me

You don't know what you've done to me
You hit me hard, but you still can't see
I need your love every single night, I don't know why it feels so right

I got the fever, I sure got it bad, you touch me and my heart catches fire
I can't find it, you're driving me mad, you send my temperature higher

(chorus) - and make a little love

(Solo)

Every thought seems to lead to you, I can't decide what I'm gonna do
There's only one thing that can put this right
I'm gonna tell you how I feel tonight

I got the fever, I sure got it bad, you touch me and my heart catches fire
I can't find it, it's driving me mad, you send my temperature higher

(chorus)

I'm coming down with a love attack, coming down
I'm coming down, there's no turning back, coming down

(chorus to fade)back to top
Excited
I've had enough of watching everything you do
It's just too much, I feel I'm going crazy over you
When you smile, I'm burning with a hundred flames
You're my dream, and you don't even know my name, yeah

There's something about you, you've been on my mind
Oh I can't live without you, so now is the time to get

Excited, tonight's the night, you know that I'm
Excited, tonight's the night

Don't you know, ooh I'm looking over your shoulder
Tell me now, exactly what you feel for me
Set me free, can't you see I'm starting to smoulder
I'm on fire, tell me that you feel the same, yeah

I'm feeling a hunger, it's starting to show
Oh I know you're the one, girl, so baby let's go and get

Excited, tonight's the night, we're gonna get
Excited, tonight's the night, you got me
Excited, burning with desire, you know that I'm
Excited, yeah I'm on fire, see me burn, yeah

(Solo)

I'm feeling a hunger, it's starting to show
Yeah, I know you're the one, girl, so baby let's go and get

Excited, tonight's the night, you'd better get
Excited, ooh tonight, you get me
Excited, and now's the night, and I'm
Excited, you know I'm right, let's get
Excited, let's get
Excited, and I'm gonna set you in flight
