We Want the Airwaves
9 to 5 and 5 to 9
aint gonna take it
its our time
we want the world
and we want it now
we're gonna take it, anyhow

we want the airwaves (x2)
we want the airwaves, baby
if rock is gonna stay alive

oh yea-well all right
lets rock-tonite
all night

where your guts
and will survive
and dont you wanna
keep rock and roll music alive
mr. programmer
i got my hammer
and im gunna
smash my

radio

we want the airwaves (x2)
we want the airwaves, baby
if rock is gonna stay aliveback to top
All's Quiet on the Eastern Front
Watch the watch the way i walk
Can't you think my movements talk
2x

See me silently quietly creep
I am too amped to sleep
lamp rays shining down
street lamps make the bussing sound
Subway creaking down below
garbage piled up and ready to go

Lock the windows the gates on
taxi in the distance coming along
Stalking the streets till the break of day
New York beauty take my breath away
Near some cats but dogs don't bark
Cool cats strolling after dark

Watch the watch the way i walk
Can't you think my movements talk
2x

Shakey lock and kicky door
Smokey air that I adore
down in the alley is where I hunt
all is quiet on the eastern front

Stalking the street till the break of day
New York beauty take my breath away

Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk
Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk
Can't you think my movements talk
Can't you think my movements talkback to top
The KKK Took My Baby Away
She went away for the holidays,
Said she's goin to L.A.
She never got there, she never got there, she never got there
They're saying


She went away for the holidays,
Said she's goin to L.A.
She never got there, she never got there, she never got there
They're saying

(chorus)
The KKK took my baby away.
They took her away, away from me
The KK took my baby away.
They took her away, away from me.

I dunno where my baby can be.
They took her from me, they took her from me.
I dunno where my baby can be.
They took her from me, they took her from me.

Ring me, ring me, ring me.
Up the president
And find out where my baby went.
Ring me, ring me
Up the FBI
And find out if my baby's alive.

Yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh-- oh oh
Oh oh oh oh-- oh oh


She went away for the holidays,
Said she's goin to L.A.
She never got there, she never got there, she never got there
They're saying


She went away for the holidays,
Said she's goin to L.A.
She never got there, she never got there, she never got there
They're saying

You Sound Like You're Sick
Well I can't understand
Anything about you
Help you if I can
What can I do

Here's your new home
That's where you must be
In the institution
'Cause you're so lazy

But if you must act up
Again & again
'Cause everybody knows
You're a hopeless problem

Here's your new home
That's where you must be
In the institution
'Cause you're so lazy

You sound like you're sick
You look like your sick too
You sound like you're sick

But if you must act up (rep.)

You sound like you're sick (rep.)

Well I can't understand
Anything about you (rep. verse)

You sound like you're sick
You look like you're sick too
You sound like you're sick
You sound like you're sick
You look like you're sick too
Well you sound like you're sick
You sound like you're sickback to top
It's Not My Place (In the 9 to 5 World)
My mom and dad are always fighting
and it's getting very un-exciting
to get a good job
You need the proper schooling
now who the hell
do ya' think you're fooling

but it's not my place oh-no
no it's not my place no no
no it's not my -not my-not my place
in the 9 to 5 world
and it's not my place
in the 9 to 5 world
and it's not my place
with 9 to 5 girl
it's not my place
in the 9 to 5 world

hangin' out with Lester Bangs you all
and Phil Spector really has it all
Uncle Floyd shows on the t.v.
Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, 10cc

But it's not my place
(repeat)

Don't wanna be a working stiff
lose my identity
cause when it comes
to working 9 to 5
There ain't not place for me
ain't my reality, to me

Vin Scelsa's on the radio
Ramones are hangin' out in Kokomo
Roger Corman's on a talk show
With Allan Arkush and Stephen King, you know

But it's not my place
(repeat)back to top
She's a Sensation
She's a sensation
She's a sensation
She looks so sweet

She's a sensation
She's a sensation
Good enough to eat

She's a sensation
Oh-oh-oh
She looks a so fine
She's a sensation
She's a sensation
I'm gonna make her mine

No matter what you do
I give my heart to you
And oh-oh-baby
I will give it to you
No matter what they say
Yeah, we can find a way
And oh-oh baby
We can find a way

I didn't find a way
Till I walked you home
That, I feel the way I do
And I don't care
What the neighbours say
I always will be true
I always will love you
Love you
A wo wo wo woback to top
7-11
I met her at the 7-11
now I'm in 7th heaven
tell me, tell me
can this be true
I never though I'd ever
meet a girl like you

She was standing by the Space Invaders
So i said can I see you later
Yeah we went for a little spin
down to the Holiday Inn

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
and you're the only girl
I'm ever thinking of

We went down to the record swap
the kids were dancing
to the blitz krieg bop
Bop-shoo-wop shoo-wop- shoo-wop
Bop-shoo-wop shoo-wop shoo-wop

What ever happend to the radio
and where did all the fun songs go
summer fun, with the Beach Boys on
But we all know what went wrong
Oh-wo-wo

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
and you're the only girl
I'm ever dreaming of

and so we went down to the dance
Which turned into a whole romance
and after just one night
I never knew that things could be so right
Oh-no-no-no-no-no-no-no

I kissed and hugged her
and I said goodbye
last thing I knew
She wouldn't make it alive
On-coming car went out of control
It crushed my baby
and it crushed my soul
now all I've got is sorrow and pain
standing out here in the rain
the crash, shattering glass
the sirens, and pain
is driving me insane oh-yeah

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
and you're the only girl
I'm ever thinking of
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeahback to top
You Didn't Mean Anything to Me
Skies were cloudy everyday
Nothing wanted to grow
We had our last chance
I think I told you so
every dinner was crummy
nothing was on T.V.
I was ready to pack it up
Our heads were so achey

You didn't mean anything to me
You didn't mean anything to me

We got to get away
Another lawn to mow
We had our last chance
I think I told you so
every dinner was crummy
even the ones for free
I was ready to pack it up
Forget the agony

You didn't mean anything to me (2x)

Everybody was cranky
even the maids were mean
We ran into a miracle
There was beer in the soda machine
every dinner was crummy
even the ones for free
I was ready to pack it up
forget the agony

You didn't mean anything to me (4x)back to top
Come On Now
Come on now
We got no wheels to race

Come on now
Come on now
police are everyplace

Come on now
Come on now
we got no skirts to chase

I'm just a junk food guy
now I am telling you why
I am living at the matinee, yeah

I just want to sleep and play
Come on now
Come on now
When the folks are not around

Come on now
Come on now
Nagging 'bout the Sound
Come on now
Come on now
to turn that racket down
I'm just a comic book boy
there's nothing scary to enjoy
freak admission stroll inside
I was born on a roller coaster ride

Come on now
Come on now
we got no wheels to race

Come on now
Come on now
police are everyplace

Come on now
Come on now
We got no skirts to chase

I'm just a comic book boy
there's nothing scary to enjoy
freak admission stroll inside
I was born on a roller coaster ride

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah come on now (4x)back to top
This Business Is Killing Me
I'm sick to death
I'm a nervous wreck
This business is killing me
you know
This business is killing me
you know
it's really killing me
yeah

(repeat)

oh-no oh-no oh-no
oh-no oh-no oh-no
oh-no oh-no oh-no
oh-no-ho

This business is killing me
and so they say

run around, run around
love giving you
the run around

run around, run around
love giving you
the run around

oh-no oh-no oh-no oh-no
oh-no oh-no oh-no oh-no
oh-no oh-no oh-no oh-no

This business is killing me
and so they say
hey, hey

You work, you work
You write all night
until the early morning light

Can't please all the people
all the time
all the people
all the time
but then they don't
please me

Well I can't take it no more
no, I can't take it no more

run around, run around

(repeat)

Well I can't take it no more
no, I can't take itback to top
Sitting in My Room
Record player on
Sitting in my room
humming a sickening tune
Sitting in my room
Something to do soon

We know what we think of them
the problems just keep piling in
They got complains about everything

It's us against them
It's us against them
It's us against them

They just wanna worry
that's not what any kid
should have to do
They just wanna be so lame
Maybe they should
try and sniff some glueback to top
