Italian X Rays
(Steve Miller and Gary Mallaber)

I went to bed late last night
Pulled down the shade
And turned out the light

I fell asleep, and I began to dream
The most extraordinary beautiful dream
Incense and perfume filled the air
The sound of music was everywhere

I met a woman by a babbling brook
She was gifted, she was wise
She was reading a book
She talked about virtue
She talked about vice
She acted kinda naughty
But she looked real nice

I could see her body move
To the rhythm, to the beat
Of a powerful groove
Her lips are red
Her body is soft
She is a movin' volcano
Man, I mean she's hot

She got the long cool legs
She got the sexy sexy style
She got the cool sweet walk
She got the beautiful smile

When I awoke, it was the break of day
I got to go to work, I got to earn my pay
I am a man who works on the line
I'm the muscle, I'm the blood, I'm the overtime
I gotta lift that bail
Work my fingers to the bone
You know I can't stop the train
I gotta let it roll on

No need to dream about it anymore
Cuz I found my dream lover on the 13th floor
Incense and perfume filled the air
The sound of music was everywhere

I met a woman by a babbling brook
She was gifted, she was wise
She was reading a book
Her lips are red
Her body is soft
She is a movin' volcano
Man, I mean she's hot

No need to dream about it anymore
Cuz I found my dream lover on the 13th floor

She got the long cool legs
She got the sexy sexy style
She got the cool sweet walk
She got the beautiful smile

She got the long cool legs
She got the sexy sexy style
She got the cool sweet walk
She got the beautiful smile

Her lips are red
Her body is soft
She is a movin' volcano
Man, I mean she's hot

No need to dream about it anymore
Cuz I found my dream lover on the 13th floor

She got the long cool legs
She got the sexy sexy style
She got the cool sweet walk
She got the beautiful smile

She got the long cool legs
She got the sexy sexy style
She got the cool sweet walk
She got the beautiful smile

Who Do You Love?
(Steve Miller and Tim Davis)

Whooooo
Whooooo
Ever since time began
Man loves a woman
Woman loves a man
This is the way it was meant to be
Through the pages, through the books
Of our history

You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love, now
You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love

One and one and one are three
I love you, do you love me
This is the place, now is the time
Give me your love, and I'll give you mine

You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love, now
You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love

This is simple, and it's true
There's a shining light all around you
You're the one, you're the fire
You can make it higher and higher

This is the place, now is the time
Tell me now darlin', will you be mine

You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love

Put your arms around me
Ah, hold me tight
Ah, cuddle up darlin'
Ah, in the still of the night
Ah, you are the one
Ah, that I adore
Ah, you are the one that I love so well

This is the place, now is the time
Tell me now darlin', will you be mine

You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love, now
You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love, now
You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you love, now
You, you, you
Do you love me, do you love me, do you love me, now
You, you, you
Who do you love, who do you love, who do you loveback to top

Out of the Night
(Steve Miller and Tim Davis)

Out of the night
You came movin'
Out of the night
Movin' so cool

Lookin' for a lover
Lookin' for a friend
You must surely be some new kind of cool

Out of the night
You came running
Didn't have to baby
But you just couldn't stop

Said that you love me
But you won't tell me why
You better watch it
Watch it, watch it, watch it, watch it
Pretty baby or you're gonna make me cry

I wear my heart on my sleeve
You know the one I love, I'll never leave
I'm not blind to the shining light
Of a heart that's true in the middle of the night

Out of the night
You came movin'
Out of the night
Movin' so cool

Say that you love me but don't tell me why
You got to want me, want me, want me
Got to want me pretty baby
Or you're gonna make me cry
Take me for a lover, take me for a friend
Cuz you know if you do
I will stay here with you to the end

I wear my heart on my sleeve
You know the one I love, I'll never leave
I'm not blind to the shining light
Of a heart that's true in the middle of the night

Out of the night
And into the dawn
We keep movin', movin', movin', movin', movin'
Pretty baby, we keep movin' on

Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
Or yesterday
We got to live this life
That we love from day to day to day to day to dayback to top
Golden Opportunity
(Gary Mallaber and Kenny Lee Lewis)

Watching the hands strike midnight
Reading the writing on the wall
Just in time to chase your dream
You got a chance to make it
You got a chance to take it all
Don't let it slip through your fingers

Runnin', hide'n
Slippin', slide'n
Wastin' time
You been there before

Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity

You got a hometown sweetheart
She's got love that won't stop
She's so satisfied to be right by your side
And if you both believe it
You know you can achieve it all
Don't let it slip through your fingers

Runnin', hide'n
Slippin', slide'n
Wastin' time
I've been there before

Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunityback to top
The Hollywood Dream
(Steve Miller and Byron Allred)

Baby got into her car
Drove all the way to New York City
Um Hummmm

She played her guitar there
They made her a star in New York City
Um Hummmm

She went to Paris, France
That's where she got the chance
To be a movie star

I got a post card from Rome
Then she was headin' home
To America
A superstar
She'd come so far

Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o

Well, it wasn't very long
Till she was back out on
That old freeway
Um Hummmm

She drove across the mountains
The prairies, the deserts
Of the U.S.A.
Um Hummmm

Hollywood gave her a call
She went and lived it all
On the silver screen

Sometimes she laughed and she cried
She kept it all inside
For the magazines
The silver screen
The Hollywood dream

Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o

She lives in an ivory tower
A tower built by fame
Um Hummmm

She's got the wealth and power
But she hasn't got a man
Um Hummmm

No matter how hard she tried
She was so empty inside
So lonely

She hung her head and she cried
Was it the love she denied
Never satisfied
Deep inside
She said goodbye

She paid the price for her fame
Everyone knows her name
America
A superstar
She'd come so far

Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o
Dit dit die o

One in a Million
(Steve Miller)

Oh, I'd like to be like a bird up in the sky
Hoppin' from branch to branch and learning to fly
I'd fly right over the hill
Right to your window sill, your window sill
I'm just crazy about you darlin'
You're one in a million

Or I'd like to be like a fish down deep in the sea
Swimmin' from canyon to canyon and feeling free
I'd pull up on your line
Let you catch me any time, any time
I'm just crazy about you darlin'
You're one in a million

Or I'd like to be like a great big bumble bee
I'd live in a hive that was hangin' from your tree
I'd make sweet honey for you
That's just what I would do, only for you
I'm just crazy about you darlin'
You, you, you
You're one in a millionback to top
