SERPENTINE

I’m gonna tell you a little story
Well it’s sad but true
If it could happen to me man
It could happen to you

Well me and Dundee took a long winding ride
Deep down in the swamp where the crocodiles hide
In the mud and the blood and the slippery green slime
In search for the one they call Serpentine

Serpentine blowin’ my mind
Serpentine she wiggle so fine
Serpentine comin’ down the line
You better watch out for the Serpentine

Oh legend says she got a long forked tongue
She wraps around and drags ya under
She lives somewhere in a deep dark hollow
She ever get a hold of you man there’s no tomorrow

Serpentine blowin’ my mind
Serpentine she wiggle so fine
Serpentine comin’ down the line
You better watch out for the Serpentine

Don’t go near the water, the water can only kill
I ain’t sayin’ she’s the devil’s daughter
But if the swamp don’t get ya then the Serpentine will

She’s hot, she’s cold, she can’t be controlled
She’s bad, she’s good, she’s misunderstood

If you don’t believe in those fairytales
About big green monster with claws and scales
Head down the river where men are men
And those who ain’t they’re never seen again

Serpentine blowin’ my mind
Serpentine she wiggle so fine
Serpentine comin’ down the line
You better watch out for the Serpentine

(REPEAT)

GET ON UP

G... g... g... get on up, get on up
Don’t just sit there baby, get on up
Get on up, right on up
I can’t love you mumma, I’ve had enough

You put chains around my body
Chains around my heart
Chains across my front ’n’ back door
You chained us apart, yeah

Ya roughed me up, roughed me up
Cuts and bruises, said enough is enough
Ya burned me up, churned me up
And all I been through sure has toughened me up

Chains around my body
Chains around my heart
Chains across my front ’n’ back door
You chained us apart, yeah

Remember when I first met you
You gave me love and freedom too
And all the changes we went through
Baby, what happened to you

Ya locked me up, locked me up
Bars and shackles and all that stuff
Ya rocked me up, rocked me up
I can’t stand no more lockin’ me up

Chains around my body
Chains around my heart, yeah
Chains across my front ’n’ back door
You chained us apart, yeah

Get on up, get on up
Don’t just sit there baby, get on up
Get on up, right on up
Get up and out, baby I’ve had enough

Yeah yeah yeah yeah mummumma
Ooo yeah yeah yeah yeah my my my
Get on up... etc.

BLACK LEATHER

Down on the street corner
Lookin’ so cool and hip
I spied old king Elvis
With that sweet little curl in his lip
And over by his hot rod
Was his jukebox dolly queen
So I went up and asked the question
Hey, how do I make this scene… he said

Hey punk, go out and get yourself some
Black leather, black leather
Hey tough, you can’t get enough
Black leather, black leather

Saw a motorcycle mumma
She drive right out of a dream
Covered up in rings and chains
Ridin’ a mean machine
So I sidled on up beside her
Said, honey now give me the tip
What’s a guy got to do to slip it to you
I waited for her to flip… but she said

Hey boy, go home and wrap your toy in
Black leather, black leather
Skin tight, sure feels alright, it’s
Black leather, black leather

Ooooooo, black leather
Yeah, black leather
Ooooooo, black leather
Yeah, black leather
I gotta get me some black leather

I finally got it together
Finally made the scene
I got me some black leather
And man, don’t I look mean
Check it from the left side
How’s it from the right
I feel so mean I gotta be seen
Come on get with it tonight

Hey punk, you gotta get yourself some
Black leather, black leather
Skin tight, sure looks so right, it’s
Black leather, black leather

Ooooooo, black leather
Yeah, black leather
Ooooooo, black leather
Yeah, black leather
I gotta get me some black leather

Gimme black
Gimme leather
I want black leather
Gimme black
Gimme leather
I want only black leather
I want it, I need it, I got to have it all over me
G g g g g get it together... etc.

TOM BOY

Short hair, old blue jeans
She don’t look nothin’ like them magazines
She talks dirty, acts flirty
The way she treats me it kinda hurts me

Never one for loose affections or emotions
She shies away from all them lipsticks and lotions

She’s a tom boy, nobody’s baby
Just a tom boy, out on her own
She’s a tom boy, she ain’t no lady
Just a tom boy, the girl I want

So bitchy, she ain’t butchy
She got a smile that says she could be
She acts tough, plays rough
From what I heard, yeah, she backs it up

Got a funny way of showin’ that she needs no satisfaction
Hey I just feel like askin’ her, hey where do you get your action

She’s a tom boy, nobody’s baby
Just a tom boy, out on her own
She’s a tom boy, she ain’t no lady
Just a tom boy, the girl I want

And it don’t seem right, and it don’t mean nothin’
It don’t mean nothin’, nothin’ at all

When I see her walkin’ by I just can’t help but wonder
Is it just my own desire or the spell I’m under
The way she walk, the way she talk
The way she dress so funny
Next time I see her on the street
I’ll stop her and say, honey you’re just a

And it don’t seem right, you’re just a
Don’t get uptight, you’re just a
Oooo be my baby, just a
Tom boy, you drive me crazy

Tom boy, nobody’s baby
Just a tom boy, out on her own
Tom boy, she ain’t no lady
Just a tom boy, oh take me home

And it don’t seem right
And it don’t mean nothin’
And it don’t seem right
Nothin’ at all

HOT TO TROT

Heeeey there’s a fire and she’s lookin’ for a thrill
Like a love vampire as she moves in for the kill
Bad for some action I feel it on the rise
Big on satisfaction, can see it in her eyes

She’s hot to trot
Burnin’ up
Can’t get enough
She’s hot to trot, yeah

Aaaain’t it a groovy when you see her on the floor
She blows the boys a kiss and all the girls they hiss
They know what she’s movin’ for
Drive you to distraction like a devil in disguise
She got the main attraction you can feel it in her thighs

She’s hot to trot
Burnin’ up
Can’t get enough
She’s hot to trot

Hot to trot
She’s got the lot
She’s burnin’ up
Hot to trot, yeah

She’s hot to trot
Burnin’ up
Can’t get enough
She’s hot to trot

Made the connection, well she’s made her selection now
Well you won’t regret it, ya sure won’t forget it
When she do what she do, do, do
She’ll drive you to distraction, a devil in disguise
She got the main attraction you can feel it in her thighs

Hot to trot
Burnin’ up
Can’t get enough
Cannotgetenoughofyouknowwhatshegot

BOTTOM OF MY HEART

Steal away through the dead of night
To the only one that can make it alright
I feel the warmth that I understand
As I enter into your loveland
Oh baby, I see you there
Lying on the bed with your long blonde hair
Looking up and asking me why
I’m pushing myself into this fire
Why does a river run to the sea
Why have you got this hold on me, girl

You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart

Daylight comes, I’m trapped within
Your tunnel of love that’s got no end
It winds on through my soul, my veins
To the temple where your love reigns
I wish, I wish I was
A man with a mission, a man with a cause
Maybe then, baby you might see
Something else can mean something to me
Your spell has got me so possessed
You’re my god, girl I must confess that

You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart

My my my my
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Nah naa nah naa
Ooooh yeah

Love is a lotion, baby rub it on
Love is devotion, sugar one on one
Don’t build me up just to knock me down
Don’t pick me up just to push me around
You’re all I want, you’re all I need
All that love ain’t supposed to be, but

You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart
You’re on top of the bottom of my heart

MEDICINE MAN

Hi ya hi ya hi ya hi ya hi
Hi ya hi ya hi ya hi ya hi

Are you comin’ to the powwow
Where you’re bound to blow your mind
Where there’s secrets and hidden power
And you can leave this world behind

Take my hand, take my hand
I’ll lead you to a wonderland
Where love is love on golden sand
Oh come with me, the medicine man

I got lotions, I got potions
Stolen dreams and kryptonite
Please release to me your passions
Smoke the peace in the pipe

Don’t look back, don’t look back
You’ll turn to stone, no, don’t look back
Understand, understand
I’m the one you need, the medicine man

I’m the medicine man and I’ll teach you
How to stay up all night
I’m the medicine man and I’ll reach you
Tonight

Ha

Are you comin’ to the powwow
Take the trip and let it roll
Stay a week or just an hour
Keep your mind, I want your soul

Take my hand, take my hand
I’ll do for you what no one can
Take my hand, take my hand
I’m the one you fear, the medicine man

Oh, come with me, the medicine man
Oh, come with me, the medicine man
I’m the one you fear, the medicine man
I’m the one you fear, the medicine man
I’m the one you fear, the medicine man

BAD LOVE

Gonna tell you a story
But it ain’t real nice
Gets kinda gory
Like a soul sacrifice
This guy called Eddie
And his girlfriend Rosie
Found going steady
Weren’t so warm and cozy

Thaught all they needed was each other
It ended up as just another
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love

As the years passed by
The breakdown started
And no one knows why
They never parted
Seemed all they lived for
Was to kiss and make up
But the final straw
Was when it started to get tough

Told each other they’d stick together
Kidding them selves they could live forever on
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love

Oooh bad love, it’ll drive you to your knees
Oooh bad love, please baby, please
Oooh bad love is bound to bring you down
Take that bad love, sugar, and get on out of town

Bad love, give it to me mumma
Bad love, do you like it like that
Bad love, oooh keep it comin’
Bad love, now get out the back

The battle was showin’
On Rosie’s face
Where their love had gone
It wasn’t worth the chase
When Eddie fooled around
With Rosie’s best friend
They knew the whole thing
Had come to a bitter end

How come that a love so wrong
Ended up so strong for so long
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love
Bad love

WILDCAT

She’s a wildcat
She’s a wildcat
She’s a wild...

Told me I was out of my mind
To take a kitten from a ball of twine
She’s only playin’, she’s only playin’
Don’t be cruel, cause she’s not yet tamed
Oh she ain’t no pussycat
Scratches all across my back
Tor up my place
Tore up my face
She’s no part of the human race

She’s a wildcat
She’s a wildcat
A little wildcat
She’s a wildcat

Thought I’d be kind and take her home
Hold me close and keep her warm
She turned on me, she turned on me
Stuck her claws into my meat
Well, I said I must be vexed
I’m gonna have that girl desexed
She can’t be tamed, can’t be house trained
The little girl has gone insane

She’s a wildcat
She’s a wildcat
A little wildcat
She’s a wildcat

Oh me, oh my, she’s on the prowl
Meow, meow, can’t you hear her growl
Oh me, oh my, she’s on the prowl
Meow, meow, can’t you hear her growl

She’s a wildcat
She’s a wildcat
A little wildcat
She’s a wildcat
