Ballroom Blitz
Are you ready, Steve? Aha.
Andy? Yeah! Mick? OK.
Alright, fellas, let's go!

Oh it's been getting so hard
Livin' with the things you do to me, aha
Oh my dreams are getting so strange
I'd like to tell you everything I see
Oh, I see a man at the back
As a matter of fact his eyes are red as the sun
And a girl in the corner let no one ignore her
'Cause she thinks she's the passionate one

Oh, yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the man at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said
Boy, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz

I'm reaching out for something
Touching nothing's all I ever do
Oh, I softly call you over
When you appear there's nothing left of you, aha
Now the man in the back
Is ready to crack as he raises his hands to the sky
And the girl in the corner is ev'ryone's mourner
She could kill you with a wink of her eye

Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
And the band started leaving, 'cause they all stopped breathing

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the man at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said
Boy, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the man at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said
Boy, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz

It's it's a ballroom blitz, it's it's a ballroom blitz
It's it's a ballroom blitz, yeah, it's a ballroom blitzback to top
The Six Teens
Where were you in sixty-eight
In sixty-eight Julie was Johnnie's date
Two kids growin' together
Livin' each day as if time was slippin' away
Oh, they were just sixteen
And their love a teenage dream
They passed the time, they crossed the line
The line that ran between
Julie and Johnnie now you've made it

But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

Suzie and Davey got to make the big time
Maybe they can put it all together
In a show that lasts forever
Oh they would walk the strip at nights
And dream they saw their name in lights
On Desolation boulevard
They'll light the faded light
Suzie and Davey you can make it

But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

So where were you in sixty-eight
When Bobby and Billy thought
That sixty eight was out of date
They took the flowers from their hair
And tried to make us all aware
Too bad, too late
So they lived from day to day
And tried to do it all their way
But sixty-eight was sixty-eight
No matter what they say
Bobby and Billy maybe you'll make it one day

But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteensback to top
No You Don't
(Chinn/Chapman)

You keep telling me you hang around while you play around
With the clowns that you've found
It ain't right
Now and then I get tired of the sounds
Of you putting me down while you're playing the town
Every night

I'm getting hung up
Yes I am, yes I am
And you don't give a damn

No you don't - have to treat me like a fool
No you don't - have to be so bloody cool
No you don't - have to make up all the rules
No you don't - no, no, you don't
No you don't

You keep on playing your reckless games
That will give you fame
But I'll take the blame for your name
Well you think you've got my life in your hands
But I'm a man, I'm a man
And I've got my own plans, I'm a man

I'm goin' down
Yes, I am, yes I am
And I don't give a damn

No you don't - have to treat me like a fool
No you don't - have to be so bloody cool
No you don't - have to make up all the rules
No you don't - no, no, you don't
No you don't

No you don't - have to treat me like a fool
No you don't - have to be so bloody cool
No you don't - have to make up all the rules
No you don't - no, no, you don't
No you don't

No you don't - no you don't
No you don't - no you don't
No you don't - no you don't...back to top
AC/DC
(Chinn/Chapman)

She got girls
Girls all over the world
She got men
Every now and then
But she can't make up her mind
On just how to fill her time
But the only way she can wind

Chorus
A.C. D.C.
She's got some other lover as well as me
A.C. D.C.
She's got some other women as well as me
She's got some other women as well as me

She's got phone
But they call her bump
She got sick
You wanna see her dingaling
Well let's be in it together
I'll guess she'll be in it forever
You've got to take it now and ever

Chorus

She got girls
Girls all over the world
She got men
Every now and then
But she can't make up her mind
On just how to fill her time
The only way she can unwind

Sweet F.A.
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Well it's friday night
And I need a fight
And if she don't spread
I'm gonna bust her head
The guy's gone mad
'Cause his chicks been had
But what can we do
When there's four of you

Sweet f.a. - never gonna make it
Sweet f.a. - people think we fake it
Sweet f.a. - now we're gonna take it
Sweet f.a.

Try to pull me out
Like a roustabout
Gonna spend my bread
Then I'll kick your head
You're just my size
But if you're so wise
See the chick in black
Maybe she'll come back

Sweet f.a. - never gonna make it
Sweet f.a. - people think we fake it
Sweet f.a. - now we're gonna take it
Sweet f.a.

Yeah, the hurstle's now
Really nice somehow
See the street car scene
From the black limousine
Shout it out
Let it all hang out
But you won't get rough
'Cause it's all a bluff

Sweet f.a. - never gonna make it
Sweet f.a. - people think we fake it
Sweet f.a. - now we're gonna take it
Sweet f.a.back to top
Fox on the Run
I don't wanna know your name
'Cause you don't look the same
The way you did before
O.K. - you think you got a pretty face
But the rest of you is out of place
You looked allright before

Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy is on the run
F - foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away

You - you talk about just every band
But the names you drop are second hand
I've heard it all before
I - don't wanna know your name
'Cause you don't look the same
The way you did before

Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy is on the run
F - foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away

F - foxy
Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away
Foxy is on the run
F - foxy
Fox on the run
And hide away
Fox on the run
Fox on the run
Fox on the run

Set Me Free
(Andy Scott)

Gagged, ball and chained
Feel just the same
Heads on the wall
Maybe you're just playing games
Set me free
Mauled by a hound
Hangin' around
Is this for real
I don't know when I'll be found
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from you

Taken by force
By you of course
Far from my bed
I know I'd rather be dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from you

Fire in my brain
Burn me insane
Making your mark
Don't leave me here in the dark
Set me free
Call me a saint
That's what I ain't
Inside my head
Maybe I'll feel better dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from youback to top
Into the Night
(Andy Scott)

I was a king thought of everything
Into the night
Then I was out everybody shout
Into the night
I kinda was having lots of fun
Into the night
And now I've lost gotta count the cost
Into the night

I couldn't lose
When I was on top
I couldn't lose
But now it's all stopped

I wore a crown then began to frown
Into the night
I cast a spell and it fell on me
Into the night

I dig a hole 'cause I got no soul
Into the night
I hear a phone then began to moan
Into the night

I couldn't lose
When I was on top
I couldn't lose
But now it's all stopped

I'm in a sea floating on one knee
Into the night
I think I'll drown oh I'm going down
Into the night
Is this a dream in agolden beam
Into the night
I look up high and there's no sky
Into the night

I couldn't lose
When I was on top
I couldn't lose
But now it's all stoppedback to top
Solid Gold Brass
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Heart of a woman
But she's a child
Something inside that's gonna drive you wild
You, you go take a walk
I don't need that kind of talk
'Cause I'm a man not a mother

Solid gold brass got a mean streak
And it's running through my veins
Solid gold brass gotta green streak
And it's going to my brain
But she helps me hang on in there
Solid gold brass

Stars in her eyes
She'd playin' her game
Smooth words and T birds
Her only claim to fame
Hey, just watch what you say
Don't talk about her that way
You know I said I'm a man not a mother

Solid gold brass got a mean streak
And it's running through my veins
Solid gold brass gotta green streak
And it's going to my brain
And she helps me hang on in there

Solid gold brass got a mean streak
And it's running through my veins
Solid gold brass gotta green streak
And it's going to my brain
And she helps me hang on in there
Solid gold brass

Heart of a woman
But she's a child
Something inside that's gonna drive you wild

Solid gold brass got a mean streak
And it's running through my veins
Solid gold brass gotta green streak
And it's going to my brain

Solid gold brass got a mean streak...back to top
