FLAUNT IT

I stood up but she knocked me back down
My head was spinnin’ like a merry-go-round
The room was howlin’ like a wild wolf pack
When she came in wearing nothing but that shirt on her back

If you got it, ooh and you got it so flaunt it
When you want it all you gotta do is just taunt it
If you got it, ooh and you got it so flaunt it
When you want it all you gotta do is just flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it so…

Ooooh yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooooh

She is a vision in her red lycra dress
With her permission could make a madman confess
I’d like to play her but the odds they are stacked
See her body’s makin’ up for what her IQ lacks

If you got it, ooh and you got it so flaunt it
When you want it all you gotta do is just taunt it
If you got it, ooh you really got it so flaunt it
When you want it all you gotta do is just flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it so…

Ooooh
Ooooh

Ooooh
Ooooh

You really got it baby flaunt it
Oh you got it sugar flaunt it
Don’t be shy come on flaunt it
Gettin’ loose baby flaunt it
A little more, come on flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it

If you got it, ooh and you got it so flaunt it
When you want it all you gotta do is just flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it baby flaunt it
You really got it so…

Flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it baby
Flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it, flaunt it baby
Ah, uh, oh god, baby take it all night don’t stop

HIGH HORSE

Get on your high horse baby and ride, ride, ride yeah

Baby Jane you lost your smile, lost your rosy glow
I ain’t seen you this low down, you ain’t the girl I used to know
Well I tell you, he’s a mean old fella, love is like a curse
Ain’t no use thinking that it’s gonna get better
Cause it’s gone from bad to worse

Get on your high horse baby and ride, ride, ride
That good for nothing man is trying to steal away your pride
Told you that he loved you but he lied, lied, lied
Get on your high horse and ride, ride, ride

Where’s that look, that sexy strut oh, he’s watching like a hawk
I ain’t seen you’re the life of the party but he’s got you scared at all
He’s a mean mistreater, a real wife beater, I’d like to break his neck
Leave that fool right out of your life and get back your self-respect

Get on your high horse baby and ride, ride, ride
That good for nothing man is trying to steal away your pride
Told you that he loved you well he lied, lied, lied
Get on your high horse and ride, ride, ride

Yeah hey!

Pucker up those sweet red lips and kiss his arse goodbye

Get on your high horse baby and ride, ride, ride
That good for nothing man is trying to steal away your pride
Think about the lonely nights you cried, cried, cried
Get on your high horse and ride, ride, ride

Get on your high horse baby and ride, ride, ride
That good for nothing man is trying to steal away your pride
Told you that he loved you well he lied, lied, lied
Get on your high horse and ride, ride, ride

RESURRECTION

It’s a resurrection

I’ve been down, baby down, baby down so long
D-did you thought I was dead, now did you thought I was gone
They thought they could treat me like a worn out slave
Well I’m a man possessed that come back from the grave

Shoutin’ hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
Hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
I was down so low, I was skin and bone
It’s a resurrection
It’s a resurrection

Well I’m back on the mound hey, hey I’m back on the block
I got a brand new axe and I’m ready to rock
Oh don’t make me beg, no don’t make me plead
Things have changed, I’m up off my knees
I know I was bad, I know I was wrong
I’m an old dirty dog and I’m comin’ on home

Hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
I said hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
I was down so low, my flesh is gone
It’s a resurrection
It’s a resurrection

Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, craze I’m gonna rattle your bones, rattle your bones
Rattle your bones, I’m gonna rattle your bones

Gotta, gotta, gotta get back on top
I was startin’ to stink I was startin’ to rot
They were wearin’ me down with their low-down rules, low-down rules, low-down rules
But no one’s treating me like a fucking fool, fucking fool, fucking fool

I said a hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
Hey, hey, hey it’s a resurrection
I was down so low, yeah you thought I was gone

TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR HEART

Sweet dreams last night
First time in a long while, yeah
I saw an old friend yesterday
Thought I’d forgotten how to smile, yeah

As the memories start to slip away
I turned my thoughts back to those lonely days

When I was trapped inside your heart, yeah
I was trapped inside your heart, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well I know I’ve burned some bridges
But I’m learning how to swim
And though the river is wide and deep, baby
I just might jump right on in
Right on in, right on in

It still hurts me when I hear your name
I’m not lookin’ for someone to blame

Cause I was trapped inside your heart, yeah
Well I, I was trapped inside your heart

Well I’m breaking out
With those fear and doubt
You know I’m breaking out of love
Well I was down on my knees
Tryin’ so hard to please
Never knowin’ where you are
Or how I’m supposed to feel, yeah

Listen
Let me tell ya
Sweet dreams last night
First time in a long, long while, yeah
I saw your face yesterday
Mmm, baby how I missed your smile
Missed your smile
Well, it may seem to you like ancient history
I still wear the scars baby, it ain’t no mystery

That I, I was trapped inside your heart, yeah
Baby, I was so trapped inside your heart, yeah

Baby I was locked up and chained
I know you hid away the key
And I was dyin’ in love
I had to set myself free, set myself free, hey
Hey yeah, trapped inside your heart
You know I was
Baby, I was trapped inside your heart
Inside your heart
Inside your heart
Inside your heart
Trapped inside your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Trapped inside your heart
I’ve done my time, I’ve done my time

HOW TO PICK UP GIRLS

Well, hey big brother came home and locked the door to his room
I could learn a little lesson, something they should teach in school
Send away five dollars to the cover of a girlie magazine
Said he finally found a way to end his own wet dreams
It’s the same everywhere, every place, right round the world
Every guy I know you know all they all know the score
Cause one ain’t enough even two cause we all want more
So let me tell you all about the ways of how to pick up girls

How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls, yeah

Listen up close and I’ll tell you what you gotta do

See the one in the corner, the blonde who is so out of reach
You know she wants to rock but you can’t find the power of speech
So slide on up and try to show a little bit of class
Mention her eyes and her lips and her hips and don’t forget ask
What’s your number baby?
Come on honey this place is such a bore
I got all you need and maybe a whole lot more
Cause the name of the game is to live it up and give it a whirl
So let me tell you all about the ways of how to pick up girls

How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls, yeah hey

Hey hey, you let me drive you home
Hey babe, I wanna do you wrong
Hey hey, don’t lead me on

Yeah
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls
How to pick up girls, girls, girls, girls, girls

Step one, you gotta know what you like
Step two, don’t be too polite
Step three, get her out on the floor
Step four, one kiss, you’re out the door
Step five, for a moonlight drive
Step six, that’s when you learn your licks
Step seven, I hope you come prepared, ‘cause
Eight, nine, ten, brother you’re in heaven

Everywhere, every place right round the world
Every guy I know, rich poor, they all know the score
Cause they will and they want and they do and they don’t and who knows
Cause the game’s been the same since Cain, how to pick up girls

You know, some girls they don’t wanna be picked up
You know the type
Gotta leave them alone

FIRST THING ABOUT ROCK AND ROLL (I REMEMBER)

Slam the door screaming off into the night
I couldn’t stand to listen to the oldies’ fight
Going down the way to a bar downtown
Slip through the backdoor, no one around
Into the darkness of a smoke filled room
Sweat smelled sweeter then Draculas’ tomb
Starting with a crash and a bolt of light
I couldn’t believe what I saw that night

First thing about rock and roll I remember
I heard that sound I thought I’d live forever
The first thing about rock and roll I remember
Oh when the music stopped I thought I was gonna die

Pounding like a hammer on a cold steel brain
Rhythm pumpin’ hot blood through my veins
Guitar slinger shooting sparks through me
Drummer stood up and shouted one, two, three
Out of my body and out of my mind
Crawlin’ round looking for an exit sign
No way out, there was no way back
When I felt that first full frontal attack

First thing about rock and roll I remember
I heard that sound I thought I’d live forever
The first thing about rock and roll I remember
Oh when the music stopped I thought I was gonna die
Yeah when the music stopped I felt like I would die

Get down

My ears were bleeding
My eyes were burning
Hands were shakin’ trapped inside that room
Walls were crashing
Wet bodies thrashing
My brain was mashing
As the band played out of tune

First thing about rock and roll I remember
I heard that sound I thought I’d live forever
Oh the first thing about rock and roll I remember
When the music stopped I thought I was gonna die
When the music stopped I thought I was gonna die
Die… Die…
Oh when the music stopped I felt like I would die
Die… Die…
Oh when the music stopped I felt like I would…

BLOOD RUN COLD

The first time you bit me baby gave me a fright, yeah
You always seem to squeeze just a little too tight, sugar
I knew that I was chickin’ when you shed your skin
And I saw you creepin’ round the burnin’ backwoods again, yeah

Make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re just a low down snake woman
Make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re like a low down snake woman

Oh, I love when you hiss me with your long forked tongue
And you only gotta rattle your tail and I come
I‘m never gonna trust your evil reptile ways, never
All that slippin’ and a slidin’ got me all in a daze baby, you know it

Make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re just a low down snake woman
You make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re just a low down snake woman

You take a shot at my back
Oooh, and then you leave me to die
Hey now if you’re going to doubt it
Hell my baby is bye, bye, bye, bye-bye

Oooh I’m out of here

You make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re just a low down snake woman
You make my blood run cold
Like poison in my veins
You chill me down to the bone
You’re just a low down snake woman

SHOT ME AN ARROW

I remember Evie and her lonely dreamy eyes
And I still keep the secret that she told me that starry night
So deep in meaning like we were hypnotized
But it all seemed so senseless why we never did say goodbye

Shot me an arrow
Aimed straight for the heart
A long single arrow
Shot into the dark
Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah
My, my, my

Hey Cliff

Out to California
Deep, deep blue sea
She spoke to me black magic
But it didn’t mean shit to me
Out on the horizon
I saw an earthquake there
‘twas there I found my baby
Falling off the edge of hell

Shot me an arrow
Ain’t never gonna fall
It’s a long single arrow
Baby answer my call
Yeah, yeah

Told me she loved me but never goodbye
Told me she loved me ‘til the day I die
Never get lonely I just don’t understand
That’s how it goes playing in a band

Shot me an arrow
Aimed straight for the heart
It’s a long single arrow
Shot into the dark
Yeah, yeah
Shot me an arrow
Ain’t never gonna fall
It’s a long poisoned arrow
Baby answer my call
Yeah, yeah

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh my, my, my

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

SWEET REVENGE

I crashed into a woman drove a reckless heart
Well she ran me down, chewed me up and spat me out and ripped me apart

Well I just want sweet revenge
You know I can’t forgive and forget and I won’t pretend
She even called me up claiming we could still be friends
Well tell ya I just want sweet revenge
So sweet

I still remember drowning in her liquid love
She had me trapped like a sticky finger in a velvet glove

Well I just want sweet revenge
You know I can’t forgive and forget and I won’t pretend
She even called me up claiming we could still be friends
Oh no I tell ya I just want sweet revenge

Well I just want that sweet revenge
You cut me deep, so deep I may never mend
I think I’ll stick around right til the bitter end
Well I just want sweet revenge, yeah
Well, I just want sweet revenge
Well, I just want sweet revenge
Well, I just want sweet revenge

Sweet revenge
Sweet revenge
Sweet revenge

I just want, yeah, sweet revenge
I just want sweet revenge
Watch your back, baby
Watch your back

FUZZ

It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz

The man was born in a uniform now
It gave him power and he liked the feeling
Now I got a problem with authority
They always seem to come down on me, yeah
There you go

It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz
It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz

They chase me down in a police car now
In my rear view mirror saw a fuzz fire there
Well I was up but they were down
And they dragged me out and pushed me ‘round
Said son, you’re a danger to society
I was only doin’ 99 or 118 well

It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz
It’s just so funny but I like no fuzz

Evenin’ all

Alright

It’s a dirty job but they love to do it
Well why would anyone put themselves through it
Well I get so angry, I get so violent
Son you have the right to remain silent

It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz
It’s just so funny but I like no fuzz at all
Well, it’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz
It’s just so funny but I don’t like the fuzz
It’s just so funny
I’s completely sat’ched in fuzz
