all Ratt lyrics



City to City
Street fights all the time
I take a chance into the night
I've got to hear the thunder

Night life dies hard
Keeps me on my guard
It's like a spell I'm under

Cause I'm runnin' city to city
And all points in between
I'm movin' city to city
You can find me on the streets
Feel my heat

Dead heat makes me blind
You might think I'm a rebel kind
There ain't no way I'm gun shy

Dizzy blonde out of reach
All my stuff on the asphalt beach
I know you think I'm crazy

Cause I'm runnin' city to city
And all points in between
I'm movin' city to city
I'm runnin' between the sheets

Oh!

City
(City)
City
(City)
City
(City)

Oh sit

Cause I'm runnin' city to city
And all points in between
I'm movin' city to city
I'm runnin' between the sheets

I'm runnin' city to city
And all points in between
I'm movin' city to city
I'm runnin' between the sheets

On the streets (On the street)
Feel the heat (Feel the heat)
City
Hey!back to top
I Want a Woman
C'mon baby
C'mon baby
C'mon baby
C'mon baby

Yeah!

Don't wanna talk about it
And I don't wanna hear what's for sale
Just move on baby
Time has got you by the tail
Your tail

You don't know what you got till it's already gone
And now this gone as you can get
I try to reason with you but there's no reason at all
While I'm banging my head up against a brick wall

I want a woman
Not some little girl
Who had to grow up
In daddy's big world
I want a woman
Who can really love me, yeah
Dead ringer of a woman

You think I'm like a truck
Even I ain't gonna walk on glass
Well no chance
I try to love ya baby
But sometimes you're just a pain in the ass

The problem with you is that I can't get through
And all this proves is I can get
I take you up north and then you wanna go south
You're just leaving another bad taste in my mouth

I want a woman
Not some little girl
Who had to grow up
In daddy's big world
I want a woman
Who knows how to love me, yeah
Baby that's what I want

I want a woman
Not the teacher's pet
Who tried to grow up
But hasn't made it quite yet
I want a woman
Who makes me feel like nobody can

I want those legs
Groovy lips
(I want a woman)
With high heels
Shake those hips
(I want a woman)
Red dress
What a scene
(I want a woman)
C'mon baby
You'll be my wildest dreams, yeah!
(I want a woman)

I'm thinkin' now down the week so much
Think the chances that that woman's touch

I want a woman
Not some little girl
Who had to grow up
In daddy's big world
I want a woman
That knows how to love me, yeah
Baby that's what I want

I want a woman
Not the teacher's pet
Who tried to grow up
But hasn't made it quite yet
I want a woman
Who makes me feel like nobody can

I want those legs
Red dress
(I want a woman)
Groovy lips
Shake those hips
(I want a woman)
With high heels
C'mon baby
(I want a woman)
What a scene
You'll be my wildest dreams, yeah!

Way Cool Jr.
Oh
Oh

New kid in town
Got fancy clothes
Old T-Bird car, baby
And you can tell your nose
He said, "Where is all the action in this town?"

Stop working on the women
It's on real slick
Heard enough about sin, girl
Gonna make it stick
Hey! What makes him so special anyhow?

She said, "So good lookin', that's a fact
Steel guitars run across his back"
The girls all know he's Way Cool Jr.

Check him out on his good side

Heard he came from Memphis
Somewhere down south
Started hangin' with the blues crowd
That's how he got that crazy sound
What is all this talkin' goin' round?

She said, "So good lookin', turns me on"
Out all night, keeps me up 'til dawn"
The girls all know he's Way Cool Jr.

You know you can't have fire without the flame
Can't keep the fortune without the pain
That's how he makes it when he's on his own

Way Cool Jr.
You don't live it up or never live it down
Way Cool Jr.
He's the hottest thing to ever hit this town

Go man go

She said, "So good lookin' and that's a fact
Steel guitar scratched off the back"
Everybody knows it's Way Cool Jr.

You know you can't have fire without the flame
Can't keep the fortune without the pain
That's how he makes it when he's on his own

Way Cool Jr.
Always comin' 'round the bend
Way Cool Jr.
He's gonna live it up or never live it down
Way Cool Jr.

Don't Bite the Hand That Feeds
Bombs away
Down in the city
Somewhere
You're a cruel survivor
A little bit goes a long way
So they say

You always want what you can't have

Like love
I'm the one
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you
If you want
What I got
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you

Stealin' hearts
And all your cheap talk
Like Hell
I wouldn't put it past you
But sooner or later you'll pay
That's okay

You always want what you can't get

Like love
It ain't funny
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you
You want money
I'll tell you honey
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you

I'm a man with a strange appetite
And I'll be takin' you home tonight
If you can take the bed out of my head
But you can't take away the fun
So many times I still wonder why
You tried to keep me in line, yeah

You can take the bed out of my head
But you can't take away the fun

'Cause that's love
I'm the one
Don't you bite the hand that feeds you
If you want, baby
What I've got
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you

If you want (You want)
What I got (I got)
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you
Like love (Like love)
I'm the one (I'm the one)
Well don't you bite the hand that feeds you

Bite me
Oh yeah

Don't you bite the hand that feeds youback to top
I Want to Love You Tonight
Trading places is that all you do
You leave no traces in the way you choose
You're always sayin' to me, "Baby be true"

You're wakin' up when I am going to sleep
I'm makin' up for nothin' under my sleep

I want to love you tonight
(Wanna love you, ah!)
Gonna make everything alright
(Yeah, yeah, yeah!)
(Ah!) I want to love you tonight, yeah, yeah, yeah

That's the way you pull me tight

It's now or never
I'm torn forever

Chain Reaction
Ah yeah yeah

Wedding rings and pawns
Like the calm before the storm
Ten on the ten scale
When will the sun fail

When you're with me
I just can't breathe
Ooh such a wild time
If there's a way to make you
Turn around come
Hit the ground

Chain reaction
One, two, three
Satisfaction
Guaranteed

That's a chain reaction
Just you and me
The only thing that gets me off
Will bring you to your knees

Like a dog without a bone
Twilight without the sound
Like ships without the sails
RATTs and Abbott tell no tales

When you're with me
I'm out of control
Ooh such a wild time
If there's a way to make you
Turn around and come
Hit the ground

Chain reaction
One, two, three
Satisfaction
Guaranteed

We got a chain reaction
It's you and me
The only thing that turns me on
Will bring you to your knees

Hey!

Livin's easy when you think you've got control

Leave your problems behind you, take a hold

Why live your life with no surprise
I'll tell you something
(Tell you something)
Why waste your time, it's no surprise
You've got everything

You spoke the oldest crossing well over mine
You're running home cause I'm workin' late at night
And the way that you're move me, you make me wanna scream
One in a million, you're right out of my dream

Why live your life with no surprise
There's only one thing
(Tell you one thing)
Why waste your time, it's no surprise
You've got everything

If they wanted your charms, you couldn't play their games
If they wanted your life, you couldn't push them away
After fighting for days, they couldn't beg you to stay
Now you're gonna live your own way

Why live your life with no surprise

Why waste your time, it's no surprise
You've got everything

Bottom Line
Right here
Is where
Your arm belongs
And I knew
From the start
I knew it all along

Feeling all my feelings
Playing with my fire
Make the next move
Kindles my desire

And I know what I'm thinkin'
That you know what I know
One thing's for sure's
That I'll never let you go

Some things last forever
Stand the test of time
It's you and me together
That's the bottom line

Come Hell or high water
Till the end of time
It's you and me forever
That's the bottom line

Was it love
Or a strange
Twist of fate
Hand in hand
Heart to heart
We took it on blind faith

Turnin' back the pages
And tryin' to find the facts
Our love is gettin' stronger
There's no turnin' back

No more nasty looks
You play no dirty tricks
Nothing here is broken
So there's nothing here to fix

Some things last forever
Stand the test of time
It's you and me together
That's the bottom line

Never say never
Till the end of time
We'll go through Hell together
That's the bottom line

Ow!

If you want it
You know where to find it
It's forever
That's the bottom line

Don't forget it
You'll never regret it
We're together
That's the bottom line

Ow!

Some things last forever
Stand the test of time
It's you and me together
That's the bottom line

Come Hell or high water
Till the end of time
It's you and me forever
That's the bottom line

Some things last forever
Stand the test of time
It's you and me together
That's the bottom line

Come Hell or high water
Till the end of time, yeah!

No, no, never say never
That's the bottom line, yeah!

Some things last forever
Stand the test of time
It's you and me together
That's the bottom lineback to top
What's It Gonna Be
Oh yeah!

My, my, my

The long nasty fingers
The sensation lingers
You make your love better than you make up your mind

My finger's been shakin' (Shakin')
It's my heart you're breakin'
The promise was we're empty and your blood runs cold

So tell me

What's it gonna be sweet Elena
Just cut to the straight, is it him or me?
What's it gonna be my Elena
Should I be waiting for the Heaven to fall?

I can feel the danger (Danger)
We're living like strangers
It's two different worlds
And maybe you can live in both

Are you sin or sinner (Sin or sinner)
Who'll keep me warm this winter?
I can tell something's wrong
You've fallen for another man

Is that true?

What's it gonna be sweet Elena
Just give it to me straight, is it him or me?
What's it gonna be my Elena
Should I be waiting for the Heaven to fall?

What's it gonna be sweet Elena
No matter what you say, it's gonna end up the same
What's it gonna be my Elena
Burnin' all your bridges, we'll put out the fire

I'm not Dutch

I missed the message but I sure got the point
That shook his nerves of steel
Should keep my distance but what can I say?
I find it hard to keep her pushin' away

I, I just got to know

What's it gonna be sweet Elena
Just give it to me straight, is it him or me?
What's it gonna be my Elena
Should I be waiting for the Heaven to fall?

What's it gonna be
What's it gonna be
Should I be waiting for the Heaven to fall?back to top
What I'm After
If you had the feelin'
That I'd be back again
And I've been out there dealin'
I thought it'd never end

And you know what you're missin'
And I know what you want
Just take a look and listen
Don't keep me hangin' on

You know what I'm sayin'
There's no point in playin'
I'm after you

Can you hear me callin'?
Baby quit your stallin'
It's you

You're what I'm after
Gonna get to you anyway
You're what I'm after
And nothin's gonna turn me away

It's been a long time comin'
And now I can't pretend
Now you can stop your runnin'
From your long lost friend

And you know what I'm missin'
And you know what I want
Just take a look and listen
Don't keep me hangin' on

You know what I'm sayin'
There's no point in playin'
I'm really missin' you

Can you hear me callin'?
Baby quit your stallin'
It's you

You're what I'm after
I'm gonna get to you anyway
You're what I'm after, you
Every time I see your face
You're what I'm after
And nothin's gonna turn me away
You're what I'm after, you
And now I'm after you

Years go by
How time flies
And now I've got to reach you
Feels like it's never been before
Before

You're what I'm after
I ain't playin' no fun and games
You're what I'm after, you
And nothin's gonna turn me away
You're what I'm after
Every time I see your face
You're what I'm after, you
And now I'm after you

You're what I'm after
And now I'm after you
You're what I'm after
Hey girl, and I'm after youback to top
