Rock & Roll
Well here, babe, look at you, and you with someone else,
Turned out like all the others, leave me by myself,
That´s how it works I guess, and you like all the rest
Guess I can handle it, if that´s the way it is

´Cos I´m in love with rock ´n´ roll, satisfies my soul
If that´s how it has to be, I won´t get mad
I got rock ´n´ roll, to save me from the cold
And if that´s all there is, it ain´t so bad
Rock ´n´ roll

I never been a one to have no stedy girl,
I love the way I live, runnin´ round the world
I like to fool around, love to tear ´em down
And if I leave, you love to miss me when I´m gone

´m in love with rock ´n´ roll, satisfies my soul
If that´s how it has to be, I won´t get mad
I got rock ´n´ roll, to save me from the cold
And if that´s all there is, it ain´t so bad
Rock ´n´ roll

I can´t imagine growin´ old with anyone
Marching to a different drum, I hear a different song
I swear I love ´em all, I don´t care if they´re small
I don´t care if they´re tall, love ´em anywayback to top

------------------------------------------

They say music is the food of love,
Let's see if you are hungry enough,
Take a bite, take another, just like a good boy would,
Get a sweet thing on the side,
Home cooking, homicide,
Side order, could be your daughter,
Fingerlicking good

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a bitch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the rich

Sittin' here in a restaurant,
Tell the waiter just what you want
Is that the meat, you wanted to eat,
How would you ever know?
Hash browns an' bacon strips,
I love the way that you lick your lips,
No fooling, I can see you drooling,
Feel the hunger grow

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a bitch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the rich

Eat up, eat you, eat me,
Eat two, get one free
Shetland pony, extra pepperoni
Just pick up the phone,
Eat greek, or eat chinese,
Eat salad, or scarf up grease
You're on the shelf, maybe eat yourself,
Come on, bite my bone

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a bitch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the richback to top
Blackheart
Two sides to all of us, with me you get 'em both,
My good side's wonderful, tho' I don't like to boast,
Better not cross over 'cos the other side's a beast
But don't expect the most if you can't take the least

[Chorus:]
Blackheart, what you think of me,
Blackheart, you want to believe,
The dark side's all you want to see
Blackheart, Blackheart
What you wanna do,
Blackheart
You know it's always true
Give back what I get from you,
Blackheart

I know the ones I win, I know the ones I lose
I can't apologise, I know I paid my dues
I can't be sorry, if I ain't always a saint
Like to be a nice guy, but don't blame me if I ain't

[Chorus]

So that's the story, what you see is what you get,
No doubt there's better men than me
But I ain't met one yet
No doubt the dancer calls the tune,
So you can call on me
I'm all I''ve got, and what I am is what I'll be

Pay your money, take your choise, everybody's free,
I know nobody's perfect and if they are it won't be me
I'll be the bad guy in the movie of your life
Just thank your lucky stars I didn't use a knife

Blackheart, what you think of me, Blackheart,
You want to believe
The dark side is all you want to see

Stone Deaf in the USA
Crossed the ocean in a silver bird,
Flying into another world,
Flying down the Pacific coast,
Flying up in a silver ghost
Love to be back in Los Angeles
L.A.X. what a sight to see,
Stone fox women, crazy days,
Table hopping at the Rainbow, babe,

Stone Deaf in the U.S.A.
Stone Deaf in the U.S.A.

Coming back to New York City
Just as crazy, ain't so pretty,
People running like crazy fools
Know you got to break the rules
You can have yourself a real good time
You can have yourself a life of crim
Hit the Limelight, make my day
Get me back to J.F.K.

[Chorus]

Been to Texas, can't get enough
Gold Virginia, fell in love
Detroit where the bad boys are
See Chicago, make you a star
Boston, Cleveland and Buffalo
Another shake, another show
Shake your ass, San Francisco Bay,
I hate to leave, I want to stay

[Chorus]back to top
The Wolf
We never see the evil deed,
Nobody cares as long as they got what they need
Don't look for help, under attack,
Blind eyes are daggers, gonna stab you in the back
The wolf is at your door,
The wolf

This ain't the time, to talk of love
That word's forgotten when the fist is in the glove,
Don't you rely, on passers by,
They'd sooner look, the other way, and let you die
The wolf is at your door,
The wolf

Don't ask for why, don't ask for help,
Don't ask for anything, that you can't do yourself
The wolf is here, he's at your side
You better fight him, or it's you that's gonna die,
The wolf is at your door,
The wolf

Owwwwwwwwwww!!!back to top
Traitor
You stand accused of treason, you offer no good reason
You are a bloody liar, yours is the stake the fire,
You say you are innocent, but you be caught and spent
And now you pay the price, for avarice, your vice
Intrigue your sole desire, you sold your wife, your child
You sell your oldest friends, you sold your countrymen
And yet we know your name, traitor, traitor

And now your face is shown, and so your fate is known,
We have discovered you, we have uncovered you,
You say you were led astray, fall on your knees and pray,
Pity is not for you, we'll make things hot for you,
Our hearts we make to harden, for you there is no pardon,
For you the spike awaits, upon the traitors gate,
And crows will eat your eyes, traitor, traitor

Delight we find in you, as we are binding you,
You look in vain for friends, you only find revenge
We give you blood and steel, we break you on the wheel
The ones you hope to sell, will send you straight to hell,
As we dismember you, we shall remember you,
You are abomination, you that betray the nation
You shall take long to die, traitor, traitor!!!back to top
Dogs
Here we are in confusion
Could be it's all an illusion
Who knows the times to come
The years to face, the race to run
We believe in graven image
We believe in the fight to the finish
We desire the almighty dollar
The pound of flesh, the golden collar
Lick the hand, we give our land to dogs

Here we are in the years
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Have made us bondage slaves
In a world that we never made,
The politicians lick our bones,
The tacticians, hearts of stone
They turn us against our brothers
Make us fight and kill each other
Locked in lust we put our trust in dogs

Here we are again,
The dead still look the same
Who cares they're soon forgotten
Nobody loves corpse that's rotten
Your fathers, mothers, daughters, sons
Have been taken by the chosen ones
But don't forget you made the choise,
You made your mark, you raised your voice,
They're all the same, you're all to blame
You're dogsback to top
All for You
Still can't believe it, can't stand to leave it
But I know the rules
We were doomed babe, too much too soon babe
Acting like fools

[Chorus:]
Tried to fly and climbed too high
We saw it all, we had to fall
But I swear it's true, was all for you
I swear it's true, was all for you

Making love all the time,
Never let the day go by, or a night
Sweet music in the dark
You always found the spark to light my light

[Chorus]

The only one babe, to ever break my heart
Was you, such a shame,
Though guys never cry, but that'll be the day I die,
Speaking your name

[Chorus]back to top
Boogeyman
You know everybody's scared,
Everybody better beware
Scared of spiders, scared of rats,
Scared of being crossed by cats
Scared of everything that moves,
Scared of things with cloven hooves

I ain't scared, live my life allright
I ain't scared, to stand and fight
I ain't scared, 'cos I believe
Ain't scared, to wear my heart on my sleeve
Ain't scared to show my hands
But I'm scared of the boogeyman

[Chorus:]
You can't boogie with the boogeyman,
You can't boogie with the boogeyman,
You can't boogie with the boogeyman,
You can't boogie with the boogeyman,
Hold out any way you can,
But don't mess with the boogeyman

He's hiding underneath your bed,
He's hiding inside your head
He's hiding behind your eye
He be there until you die
Ridin' shotgun in your new transam
Slide over for the boogeyman

[Chorus 2x]back to top
Cradle to the Grave
Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, could've been a loser
Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, rather be a boozer
Standing at the crossroads, see where the wind blows
Following the white line, following my nose

You've been living on a razor's edge, soon as you learned to shave
Make sure you live, be a long time dead
Cradle To The Grave

Ain't too good, don't look good, but it'll get worse
Don't look good, don't feel good, it's gonna take years
Life drives you nuts, babe, 'cos you ain't certain
Kicks you in the guts, babe, and leaves you hurting

Don't matter up or down, sideways, in or out
If it makes you feel good, do it, and then get out
Don't spend your life on your own bed
Cradle To The Grave

Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, could've been a junkie
Ain't so bad, ain't all bad, could've had a monkey
You can't take it with you, not even if you earn it
So find out what you need babe, then you'd better learn it

It don't matter who you are, millionaire or whore
Just get out and scrape that jar, that's what they've got it for
You've been living on a razor's edge, one way to behave
Make sure you do it, it'll cut you dead
Cradle To The Graveback to top
Just 'Cos You Got the Power
You might be a financial wizard,
With a sack of loot,
All I see is a slimy lizard,
With an expensive suit,
Go on and run your corporation,
Go and kiss some ass,
You might buy half of the nation,
But you can't buy class.

You bastards think it's funny,
Lyin' and thieving all your life,
Think all there is money,
Got your future strapped up tight,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

You can take my fingers babe,
You can take my eyes,
You can take my past and future,
It won't make you wise,
You can have me thrown in jail,
You can steal my booze,
You can even read my mail,
Step on my blue suede shoes.

You bastards must be clever,
Got it mapped out in black and white,
But don't forget you'll never,
Get a dog to walk upright,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

Go on out make another deal,
Feed your big fat face,
Go on out and cop a feel,
Get on somebody's case,
You surely would be satisfied,
If you could have it all,
But time ain't on your side,
You're going to the wall.

You think that life's all dollars,
Greed and lust and spite,
But I wasn't born to follow,
Like to get my sleep at night,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.back to top
