Sleeping Bag
When it's cold outside and you want to sleep in
go for a pallet that's so nice and thin.
Zip it on around while it's on the ground,
spread it out and lay it on down.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
slip inside my sleeping bag.

You're afraid of the dark, baby, no need to be shy.
We'll talk about some lovin' while we look at the sky.
Don't be hesitating, it'll be alright,
we'll tuck it in until it's clean out of sight.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
slip inside my sleeping bag.

Let's go out to Egypt 'cause it's in the plan,
sleep beside the pharoahs in the shifting sand.
We'll look at some pyramids and check out some heads.
Oh, we'll whip out our mattress 'cause there ain't no beds.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
slip inside my sleeping bag.

Stages
It's a fine time to fall in love with you,
I ain't got a single thing to do.
It happened before I knew what was going on.
I fell out and knew that I was gone.
Stages keep on changing,
stages rearranging love.

Then you left me standing all alone,
I couldn't even get you on the phone.
Were you just confused and didn't know
if you should stay or if you had to go?
Stages keep on changing,
stages rearranging love.

Now you're back and say you're gonna stay.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Tell me it's for real and let me know
why does lovin' have to come and go.
Stages keep on changing,
stages rearranging love.

Woke Up With Wood
When I woke up this morning
I was feeling mighty good.
My baby understood had to do what she should
lying near a pile of wood.
Laying it on some,
playing with it some
when I, I woke up with wood.

I was lying there thinking 'bout basketball
trying not to lose my mind
my baby came to help and I let out a yell,
she grabbed me from behind.
Laying on it some,
playing with it some
when I, I woke up with wood.

Beauty queens fall in trances,
debutantes lose their furs.
But it felt so good from where they stood,
they were working on a pile of wood.
Laying on it some,
playing with it some
when I, I woke up with wood.

Rough Boy
What in the world's come all over me?
I ain't got a chance of one in three.
Ain't got no rap, ain't got no line
but if you'll give me just a minute I'll be feelin' fine.

I am the one who can fade the heat,
the one they all say just can't be beat.
I'll shoot it to you straight and look you in the eye.
So gimme just a minute and I'll tell you why
I'm a rough boy, I'm a rough boy.

I don't care how you look at me
because I'm the one and you will see
we can make it work, we can make it by.
So give me one more minute and I'll tell you why
I'm a rough boy, I'm a rough boy.

Can't Stop Rockin'
I heard about the rock for sometime, I know.
It's easy to do when you feel the roll.
Makes you want to get up, makes you wanna move your feet.
No matter how it's done you know it can't be beat.
'Cause I can't stop rockin',
no, I can't stop rockin'.
Well, I can't stop rockin',
baby, till I lose my mind.

Somebody said it's wrong but I know it's all right,
then it really hits you like a shot in the night.
I'm never gonna stop as long as I can stay.
Listen to me now, can't you hear me say,
I can't stop rockin',
no, I can't stop rockin'.
Well, I can't stop rockin',
baby, till I lose my mind.

I like to work it down low, I like to work it to the top.
And when it starts rockin' I ain't never gonna stop.
Get yourself loose, get yourself high.
I love to feel the motion and I'm tellin' you why.
'Cause I can't stop rockin',
no, I can't stop rockin'.
No, I can't stop rockin
no matter what they do do do do do or say.
No matter what you do do do do do or say, no no.

Planet Of Women
What can I do, I'm a nervous wreck?
There's girls everywhere, I better go and check.CHECK IT OUT
I can't tell a diamond from a hole in the ground.
They all got my head spinning round and round.
Planet of women, oh yeah.
The planet of women, oh yeah.
It's driving me insane.

They start by acting just a little discreet.
Then they're in the skies and they're in the streets.
You can find them in cars or a hotel lobby,
they're easy to find, just look for a body.
Planet of women, oh yeah.
Just a planet of women, oh yeah.
It's driving me insane.

If you have the answer, drop me a line today
or send a straight jacket something in a shade of gray.
I think I've sprained my brain 'cause it won't unwind.
Every day it's man against man on the
planet of women, oh yeah.
Just a planet of women, oh yeah.
It's driving me insane,
it's driving me insane.

I Got The Message
I'm picking up on a signal
that's in the air tonight.
It's sparkin' my receiver,
it feels like dynamite.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

My mind is electric,
I'm about to blow a fuse.
The cockpit is empty
so shoot it down the tube.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

I've got to make a connection.
I'm on needles and pins.
Workin' up a printout
and I'm gonna zero in.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

Velcro Fly
Hey, look at the hooks
on your pants makes you wanna dance.
I say yeah yeah,
I say yeah yeah.
There ain't never a catch, all you got to do is snatch,
do the velcro fly,
do the velcro fly.

You need just enough of that sticky stuff
to hold the seams of your fine blue jeans.
I say yeah yeah.
I say yeah yeah.
There ain't never a catch, all you got to do is snatch,
do the velcro fly,
do the velcro fly.

Well, it feels so right when you squeezed it tight,
when you reach the end do it over again.
I say yeah yeah.
I say yeah yeah.
There ain't never a catch, all you got to do is snatch,
do the velcro fly,
do the velcro fly.

Dipping Low (In The Lap Of Luxury)
I went around the world till I found the right spot.
It was ultra sweet and just a little bit hot.
Dippin' low in the lap of luxury.
Dippin' low in the lap of luxury.

Now if you get down there you'll be doin' it right.
Yeah, once you got it you better hold on tight.
Dippin' low in the lap of luxury.
Dippin' low in the lap of luxury.

Now if you wanna break down I'll hold my head up high.
I'm a good mechanic, I'll go over you in style.
Dippin low in the lap of luxury.
Dippin low in the lap of luxury.

Delirious
I went down to dock number ten
to see what just came in.
They seemed a little bit mysterious,
I think I'm gonna get delirious.
DELIRIOUS DELIRIOUS

I got nailed in a raid last night,
they tried to haul me off to jail.
Things were looking kind of serious
till everybody got delirious.
DELIRIOUS DELIRIOUS

I fell into a hand of cards
and almost blew the night away.
Things were looking kind of furious
till everybody got delirious.
DELIRIOUS DELIRIOUS

I overloaded and I saw the light,
decadence was on my mind.
Everything was getting ridiculous
till everybody get delirious.
DELIRIOUS DELIRIOUS
