Slip of the Tongue
Sometime after midnight, the heat begins to rise
Girl you'd shame the devil with the look that's in your eyes
I know what's on your mind and I can't run away
If I don't give you what you want there's gonna be some hell to pay
Creeping up behind me, knocking at my door
I'd never be too blind to see just what you're looking for
You roll me over, make me moan
Ooh, such a velvet touch, you'd melt a heart of stone
(chorus:)
Anytime, anyplace, I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love and keep you young
All it takes and no mistakes is just a slip of the tongue

And if I want a little love I gotta take a little pain
Make me think a thousand times before I kiss again
I'm waiting on your, every day and every night
If I don't try to satisfy there's gonna be a fist fight
(chorus)

The sun is slowly rising and I'm sinking to my knees
I'm dying just to close my eyes, I'm begging, darlin' please
I hear you calling and I'm crawling cross the floor
I give you everything I got and still you ask for more
(chorus)back to top
Cheap an' Nasty
I get so confused but my heart knows you're one of a kind
Leather and lace, an angel's face
Riding on a one track mind
You're fully loaded with cruise control
My four wheels rock with your backseat roll
(chorus:)
You're cheap an' nasty, all you wanna do is give it up, give it u
Cheap an' nasty, c'mon and do the dirty with me

I get so excited babe, when I'm invited to ride in your limousine
You drive it every day, burn it every night
I wonder how you keep it so clean
Smooth accelerator, you get me so loose
You keep your motor running til'I run out of juice
(chorus)

I never knew it could be this way, and I never thought I'd ever complain
But gimme just a second just to catch my breath, babe, before you do it again
All the boys call your name down the wishing well
'Cause baby, when you go you're like a cat out of hell
(chorus)back to top
Fool for Your Loving
I was born under a bad sign, left out in the cold
I'm a lonely man who knows just what it means to lose control
But I took all the heartache and turned it to shame
Now I'm movin', movin' on and I ain't taking the blame
(chorus:)
Don't come running to me, I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you just makes a hard loving man
So I can say it to you, babe: I'll be a fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying\
A fool for your loving no more, I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'm tired of hiding my feelings, you left me lonely too long
I gave my heart and you tore it apart
Oh, baby you done me wrong
(chorus)back to top
Now You're Gone
Now you're gone, I can feel my heart is breaking
And I can't go on when I think of the love you have taken
In the night, I pray for your embrace
Every time I close my eyes I can't escape your face
You're out of sight, but always on my mind
I never realized my love could be so blind
You're all I want...can't you feel the love in this heart of mine?
You're all I need...so maybe we could turn back the hands of time
Maybe we could give it another try, one more time
But now you're gone, there's an emptiness closing around me
And I can't go on when all I have left is the memory
In the night, I call out your name
I wake up in a cold sweat and I'm all alone again
I need your love much more than I can say
I realize without you I can't face another day
You're allI want...can't you feel the love in this heart of mine?
You're all that I need...since I lost you, girl, I've been losing my mind
You're all that I want...so maybe we could turn back the hands of time
Maybe we could give it another try, one more time
Nowyou're gone, I can feel my heart is breaking
And I can't go on, when all of my love has been taken
You're all I want...can't you feel the love in this heart of mine?
You're all that I need...since I lost you, girl, I've been losing my mind
You're all that I want..can't you feel the love in this heart of mine?
You're all that I need...since I lost you, girl, I've been losing my mindback to top
Kitten's Got Claws
Walking down the street, you're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket, my manhood locked in your purse
You ain't a bad girl, honey, no matter what the neighbors say
It's just you wear those skintight dresses with your g-string tuned to A
Sweet, sweet, child of the street
Heaven sent, you're an angel dressed in black
Cool stiletto strut, you're a drop-jaw cardiac
You're the genuine, feline, prettiest girl I've ever seen
With your thief of hearts smile you're a certified pleasure machine
Sweet, sweet, child of the street
(chorus:)
Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur
You get what you want with your pussycat purr
But the kitten's got claws, she
'll tear your heart out
The kitten's got claws, she'll scratch your back
The kitten's got claws, she'll tease an' please you
The kitten's got claws, she's a heart attack

You treat me good, sometimes you treat me bad
But keep it up, honey, you're the best time I ever had
No matter what you put me through, I must confess
Ooh, you got more style than a brand new XJS
Sweet, sweet, child of the street
(chorus)
(repeat verse one and chorus)
You scratch my back, baby, and I'll scratch yoursback to top
Wings of the Storm
On an' on, the road goes on, an' it'll go on forever
Time will show if you an' I will walk that road together
Through fire an' water, ice an' snow
Heaven above us an' Hell below
Holding on trying to walk the line, with sweet temptation running close behind
I'm talking 'bout love...oooh, love...
(chorus:)
Like a fire forever burning, a flaming heart that's yearning more an' more
A love to keep us warm on the wings of the storm

Every day and every night, I keep hoping it'll be alright
Trying to leave the past behind, still looking for some peace of mind
But destiny brought us together and promised a time that would last forever
Though it's all been said before, it's the kind of love worth fighting for
I'm talking 'bout love...ooh, love...
(chorus)

(repeat verse one and chorus)
My love will keep you warm on the wings of the stormback to top
The Deeper the Love
When I look back on everything I've done
I know you must've cried a river of tears
But you were there when I was feeling low to walk me through my darkest fears
(chorus:
So when the sun goes down and those nights grow colder
I will be there looking over your shoulder
'Cause the deeper the love, the stronger the emotion
And the stronger the love, the deeper the devotion

There were times I almost let you go, when I thought I needed to break free
But you were there to whisper in my ear:
"Why don't you share your dreams with me?"
(chorus)
I don't mind what you're doing to me
I don't mind 'cause you're all I can see
I don't mind, baby, you mean the world to me
(chorus)back to top
Judgment Day
The night is gone, the time has come to find a new day has begun
An' it promises to stay
To soothe the pain of wasted years and kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way
And from the darkness comes a smile that reaches out for many miles
Touching everyone
No more shadows of the past, your spirit free to fly at last
Shining in the sun
Like rolling thunder, I feel the power of love
IT's a gift from heaven and the Lord above
We walk toward desire, hand in hand through fields of fire
With only love to light the way on the road to judgment day
Take it easy, take it slow
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go, places never seen before
'Cause I love you, and I need you
I'll do my best to please you, my love can open any door
When you hear the thunder in your darkest night
I'll be there to hold you when the lightning strikes
So don't you worry, you can ease your mind
'Cause we'll still be dancing at the end of time
Who loves you? Who needs you? Who'll do his best to please you?
I love you. I need you. I'll get down on my knees
We walk toward desire, hand in hand, through fields of fire
With only love to light the way on the road to judgment dayback to top
Slow Poke Music
Y'know the joint was jumping like a dancing fool
I saw you standing in the corner looking oh so cool
I had a word with the DJ to make the music hot
I'm gonna get you on the dance floor if you're ready or not
(chorus:)
Slow poke music, I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music, I'll never leave you alone

When you move it to the left or you shake it to the right
No matter what you do, babe, it's like dynamite
With your sweet French perfume an' that criminal walk
Y'know you melt my ice cream with your body talk
(chorus)

I'm gonna shake you down, girl, I won't do you no harm
Well you move so fine, like stepping on glass
An' when you gimme that smile I see lightning flash
East and west, north an' south
Babe, you're so hot I'm gonna melt in your mouth
(chorus)back to top
Sailing Ships
Do you remember standing on the shore, head in the clouds
Your pockets filled wtih dreams?
Bound for glory on the seven seas of life
But the ocean is deeper than it seems
The wind was with you when you left on the morning tide
You set your sail for an island in the sun
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead, for the storm has just begun
Take me with you, take me far away, and lead me to the distant shore
Sail your ship across the water, spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see you're the one who holds the key
Or sailing ships will pass you by
You cry for mercy when you think you've lost your way
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
So find the strength and you will see you control your destiny
After all is said and done
So take me with you, take me far away, an' lead me to the distant shore
Sail your ship across the water, spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see you're the one who holds the key
Or sailing ships will pass, sailing ships will pass you
Sailing ships will pass you by
So take me with you, take me far away, we'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see you control your destiny
So sailing ships don't pass you by
So take me with you, take me far away, we'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see you control your destiny
So sailing ships don't pass you by
You'll find that you're the only one can sail your ship across the skyback to top
