Action
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

So you think you'll take another piece of me
To satisfy your intellectual need
Do you want, do you want
Action, action, action, action
Gonna bring you down
'Cause you've been pushing me
You've got to recognise my superiority

Liar, liar, liar, liar
You know you believed it
Higher, higher, higher, higher
'Cause I'm the main man
And that's why
Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the action

Oh, I was suicidal 'cause you was my idol
Baby, baby, baby, bring it to your knees
Oh, there was a time I would have walked the line
But you bled me dry with your insatiable greed

Liar, liar, liar, liar
You know you believed it
Higher, higher, higher, higher
'Cause I'm the main man
And that's why
Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the action

Do you want, do you want action?

Everybody wants, everybody needs
Everybody wants, everybody needs

Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the actionback to top
4th of July
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

The fool got up and hit my face
I couldn't make it to the door
I took a sip and drained the tap
And life became a thing to stab
Aha

I couldn't understand it
My days were in a daze
Is it bloody Sunday
I'd better save my prayers
Oh yeah, oh yeah

And when the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higher

Believe the lies I told myself
I wasn't into something I own
No way
I held my breath I count to ten
So turn around round round
And do it again

I couldn't understand it
My life was all a blaze
Is it bloody Sunday
My days were in a daze

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higher

And when the stars fell down
You know I' m gonna burn up the town
It's the 4th of July
And I was getting so high

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higherback to top
Cockroach
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

You crawled into my bed
Like a cockroach
The things you said
Made me lose my head
Like a waterfall
You've got a mouth
Like a DC ten
But I love you

You've got me in your arms
And your special charms
My yah ah yah
You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
But I don't want nobody but you

You fucking laugh at my inolations
You made a fuss 'bout my eating purse
By my mothers's side
You feel away like a sherman tank
But I love you

You're gonna take me there
I don't really care
My yah ah yah
You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
I don't want nobody but you

Turn you on to me to bring your Mama
The way she freaks gives me the creeps
She's a mainline ma'am
You've got to know
what you're doin' to your Daddy
'Cos I love you
You've got me in your arms
Ooh your precious charms
Ah yah ah yah

You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
I don't want nobody but youback 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
Fox on the run...back to top
She Gimme Lovin'
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Pains in my heart
Torturin' me with desire
And when we part
Emptimess puts out the fire
Walkin' down the street, there's nobody there
Cry in my sleep
As long as I'm with her I don't care

She gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' (lovin'), gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' like I never had
Lovin' (lovin'), gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' like I never had

Child in the night
I'll always be by aside
Beatin' all night
Our lives will forever be tight
Shoutin' my name whenever I'm with her
Crying out loud
Whenever I break I don't care

She gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' (lovin'), gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' like I never had
Lovin' (lovin'), gimme lovin' (lovin')
Lovin' like I never had

Ooh, if she won't let me free
I'm never fall asleep
Wanna be inside her
Ooh, she won' t say I'm her man
She'll never understand
Somehow I'm inside her

She gives me love, love, love
Oh baby, oh a little love, love, love, love, love
Give me some love, oh I've gotta give you love
Give me some love
She gave me love that I'm allrightback to top
Hard Times
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Whatever I do
It turns out wrong
Bought a brand new car
It didn't last long
They were lyin', cheatin'
Takin' my money

I just can't get it right
So all they give me is hard times
Hard times, hard times
All I get is hard times

It took a long time
And I didn't earn a dime
To get what I've got
Now they only take lot
We were smokin', we were jokin'
Throwin' it away

Well, it's one long fight
And all they give me is hard times
Hard times, hard times
All I get is hard times

Got music to play
Day after day
No free talk wonder
I don't care what they say
You ain't with it
So don't dig it
Just wastin' my time

I'm gonna get it right
So don't give me those hard times
Hard times, hard times
All I get is hard timesback to top
Midnight to Daylight
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Her face was turnin' red
'Cause everybody's talkin' bout
The thoughts inside her head
Was it six or seventeen
And old enough to know about
The things that should have been
You know just what I mean

The things that I do at midnight
You ain't gonna say at daylight
Daylight

I knew she couldn't see
She said she'd never played a star
But played it just for me
My head was in a state
'Cause every time she came with me
She said that she was late
I should have had her mate

The things that I do at midnight
You ain't gonna say at daylight
Daylight

The things that I do at midnight
You ain't gonna say at daylight
Daylight, daylightback to top
Live for Today
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

They thought you were crazy
When you took a walk right through the door
They don't know the reason
You just couldn't take it anymore
The lies that they told you
And the times that they sold you
Down the line

Live for today - don't need your politician
Live for today - don't want no inquisition
Live for today - you gotta throw the rules away

You gotta, you gotta
Live for today - don't need your politician
Live for today - don't want no inquisition
Live for today - you gotta throw the rules away

Counterfeit city
Spending your life in their charade (sorry for yourself)
Sincerely phony
This musical mascerade has gone too far far far
You sold your clothes
Now it's cold up your nose
And you frooze

Live for today - don't need your politician
Live for today - don't want no inquisition
Live for today - you gotta throw the rules away

Live for today - don't need your politician
Live for today - don't want no inquisition
Live for today - you gotta throw the rules away

Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Live for today - don't need your politician
Live for today - don't want no inquisition
Live for today - you gotta throw the rules away
You gotta live for today
You gotta throw it away
Gotta gotta live for today
You gotta throw it away
Get out of my way
I'm only live for today
Live for today
Throw it away...back to top
Windy City
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Listen to you
Listen to me
No one knows the reason
Why they wanna be free
Workin' all night
Workin' all day
Waitin' for my money
And I can't get away
I wanna be rich man
But I'm only poor man
I got to get away

Waitin' for the risin' sun to shine on windy city
You can find a place to hide yourself in windy city
I've got to get away from windy city

Your dad's in the slam
Your mama's a whore
No one understands you
Couldn't help bein' poor
But when I get rich
I'll get my kicks
From givin' it all away
Wanna be free
'Cause livin' ain't easy
Wanna be free
Cause that's how it's gonna be
I gotta be free

Waitin' for the risin' sun to shine on windy city
You can find a place to hide yourself in windy city

Gotta be free
Now I'm a rich man
Gotta be free
Don't wanna be this man
I gotta be free

Waitin' for the risin' sun to shine on windy city
You can find a place to hide yourself in windy city
I've got to get away from windy city
I don't wanna be a poor man
Don't wanna be a rich man
I gotta be free
I wanna be freeback 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
Breakdown
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Yesterday I flew straight into tomorrow
Today I'm gonna lose
The ups and the downs
And the seeds that they sow

Blowin' hot and cold
Must be getting old
Everybody knows,
The cubes that you knock back
Won't reincarnate
You are trapped it's your fate
Very soon it's too late
So you give up and

Break down, stay down
Break down, low down
Break down, stay down
Stay down, break down

Head is playin' tricks
Colours are appearin'
But black and white don't mix
With stories I'm hearing
They're bringing me down

If you don't help me soon
I think I'm going crazy
I just broke up the room
Give me a piece of the
World that I know
Where the seeds that I sow
Are the minds that I blow
So I give up and

Break down, stay down
Break down, low down
Break down, stay down
Stay down, break downback to top
