SCHOOL LOVE
(Lips, Reiner)

Out in the school yard little Peaches play
Rubbing their beaves, they got a lot to say
Never doing work, teachers are mad
Really don't care 'cause they're never sad
Little school Peaches take a word from me
Got to do your work and that's the way to be

Chorus:
School Love
School Love

Caught in the can having some fun
Teachers on the prowl now you gotta run
Underneath the stairs safety for awhile
Feeling each other 'cause that's your style
Now that you are caught, caught in the act
Gonna be strapped and that's a fact

-Chorus 2X-

Keeping you apart, watching all the time
Punishment is due for a lover's crime
All you little girls have a lot to fear
Knowing your principal is so near
Doing it again, breaking all the rules
Teachers are coming, they're no bunch of fools

-Chorus-

AC/DC
(Lips)

C'mon, alright!

There's more than one way to play the game
Getting a charge, taking the blame
Resistance is low, gonna blow a fuse
Turn it up babe we got nothing to lose

Chorus:
AC - She'll go either way
DC - She'll blow you away
Hot lover with a loose connection

Thunder & lightning, electricity
She set me at peak intensity
She's got me cumin', got me going
Shorted wires, circuits blowing

-Chorus-
She's AC/DC
She is AC/DC
She is AC/DC
Yeah she is, ya know she is
Let me show ya

?????????
Signals just a comin' through
You better look out baby

Every word I hear

-Chorus-
She is AC/DC
Ya know she is AC/DC
She likes it both ways - AC/DC
Oh let me tell ya - AC/DC
Oh right now - AC/DC
Oh yeah - AC/DC
She is AC/DC

 

AT THE APARTMENT
(Lips, Reiner)

You give me love everynight
I'm the one that does it right
At your place in the dark
You get down and leave your mark
In the morning you're still awake
You look at me there's time to wait
You say you love the things I do
You can't stop until I'm through
You need a rest from me
When you need it you know where I'll be

You know there's no time to waste
Come on over I'll give you a taste
When you're with me it feels so right
Come with me and stay the night
You're the girl of my dreams
I want to tell you how much it means
You're the one I want so bad
I've been around, you're the best I've had
I love you baby, stay a while
I made you happy, you made me smile

Chorus:
You gave me the hint
At the apartment
Oooh yeah, at the apartment baby

-Verse 2-

-Chorus-

 

I WANT YOU BOTH (WITH ME)
(Allison)

I met a girl, her name was Aund, she said
How do you do?
I think you're lookin good, like your style
I wanna get down on you
She took me home
She got me stoned
We rocked all night
I said honey now that's what I like

Chorus:
Decision - I don't know what to do
I think that I'm in love with both of you
I know I must decide which one it will be
But I want you both - I want you with me
So c'mon I want you both with me

I met another her name was Sil
You know that she looked so fine
I saw her walkin' on up ahead
Wow, she blew my mind
I wanna hold her tight
And get down all night
But she's so cold to me
I said honey now why can't she see
Why can't you see?

-Chorus-
I want you both with me

Well Sil she's nice but she's so hard to know
And she puts me down
The other loves me and she lets it show, so
She's hanging around
I Guess I'll make the most
And I'll see them both
'Cause they suit me fine you know honey
That I lay them all the time.

-Chorus-

 

BEDROOM GAME
(Lips, Reiner)

Having long hair did it to you
Getting on my back on rubbing it too
Since that day you've had to pay
Just wanting to get me, get me for a lay
Your blonde hair felt so nice
Looking at you was paradise
Getting drunk in the middle of the night
Going to bed was out of sight

Chorus:
Bedroom game
Ya know it's always the same
Bedroom game

I said I'd go ten so did you
But in the end you were the loser too
You went crazy after that night
Just making trouble wanting to fight
I'll pack you in 'cause you're not for me
It's hard to understand but it's got to be
I used you that morning when I told you to go
Don't show me tears, I don't want to know

-Chorus-
Oh baby give it to me

I'll pack you in 'cause you're not for me
It's hard to understand it's got to be
I used you that morning when I told you to go
Don't show me tears, I don't want to know

-Chorus-

OOH BABY
(Lips, Reiner)

I know I tease you
And I know you like that
I know I please you
'Cause that's where it's at
I know you want me
It shines in your eyes
I know you'll take me
'Cause I hate your cries

Chorus:
Ooh Baby - I'm saying this to you
Ooh Baby - So let me on through
Ooh Baby - Oooh Baby - Yeah

I know I'll get you hot
There's no time to wait
I know you love it hot
I'm never too late
I know you like the things
That I always say
I know you want the thing
That's coming your way

-Chorus-

-Verse 2-

-Chorus 2X-
Lookout!

Ooh baby
Ooh baby

 

PAINT IT BLACK
(Jagger, Richards)

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
Oooh yeah

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens everyday

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and I want it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I looked hard enough into the setting sun
My love would laugh at me before the morning comes
Oooh yeah

-Verse 1-

Paint it, paint it, paint it, paint it black
Paint it, paint it, paint it, paint it black
Paint it, paint it, paint it, paint it black

 

OH JANE
(Lips, Reiner, Allison)

Oh Jane can you wait
I'm coming home, but I'm running late
Just playing one more town
You know I miss you and I want you around
Oh Jane I'm alone
On the road but I'm coming home
I feel your love in my heart
And I hope that we will never part

Chorus:
Wish I was home to hold you tight
My hotel room is empty tonight
I want you with me let's make it a date
Oh Jane can you wait

Oh Jane can you wait
You give me love you don't hesitate
You worry that I'll stray
Never trust me when I'm away
Oh Jane stay with me
You know I want you that's the way it will be
I've told you I love you
Home or away I will always be true

-Chorus-

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-

 

HOT CHILD
(Lips, Allison)

I've been searching a long time
For a girl just like you
When I saw you, I could tell then
All my dreams had come true
You came a-cruisin' into my life
I was ready for a change
I knew you were a hot girl
So I asked your name

Chorus:
You said it don't matter
Take me with you tonight
We'll hit the town and we'll party
Make sure I'm home before light

So we went cruisin' together
We had one hell of a time
That lady and I tore up the town
You know she blew my mind
We hit all the night spots
You know the music was intense
Lights reflected in her eyes
In the room the smoke was dense

-Chorus-

I took her back to my place
You know she felt just fine
I started coming on to her
In seconds she was mine
Morning sun shone in her hair
You know she sure looked wild
I could really tell then
She was a Hot Child

-Chorus-
Make sure, make sure I'm home before light

BONDAGE
(Lips)

Bondage!!

Tie me down you mean old bag
Wrench the ropes down leave no sag
Crack the whip across my back
I love your hot and nasty attack

Chorus:
Oh bondage I'm uptight
Dig the feeling it's alright
Oh bondage I'm uptight
Dig the feeling it's alright

Tourniquets that could stop a flood
Cease the circulation of my blood
The sensation it is very rare
Don't stop it's too much to bare

-Chorus-

It's so tight that I have to moan
You leave me empty, dry as a bone
Body's marred by torturous rope
I just can't quit it's too much to cope
Yeah to cope

-Chorus 2X-

 

METAL ON METAL
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Metal on metal
It's what I crave
The louder the better
I'll turn in my grave

Metal on metal
Ears start to bleed
Cranking it up
Fulfilling my need

Metal on metal
Shakin the place
Blows back your hair
Caves in your face

Metal on metal
Feeling the grind
Up go the hammers
A victim to find

Metal on metal
Heads start to bang
Denim and leathers
Chains that clang

Chorus:
Keep on rockin
Keep on rockin
To this metal tonight
Keep on pounding
Keep on pounding
Join the heavy metal fight

Metal on metal
Gets you so high
Excitement and action
Won't pass you by

Metal on metal
The hardened breed
True to the end
A fire to feed

Metal on metal
Heat starts to rise
Kickin it out
With screams and cries

Metal on metal Never will die
Parties and concerts
Keep it alive

Metal on metal
It's the only way
To hell with tomorrow
Let's live for today

-Chorus-

 

MOTHRA
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson, Ross)

In a small town outside of destiny
The legend lives on yet it lives free
That night the mountains glowed with fiery rage
From the darkness of hell out she came

Comin' to get you!! You can't escape
You're gonna die, you wonder why??!!

Might wings beat out thunderous gusts of wind
Megatron eyes explode in the skies, it begins!
Talons like razors are shredding your bones to pieces
Is this a dream or is God's telling you it's over?

Chorus:
Mothra, Mothra, Mothra

Buildings are falling, black death is above you
You can't run there's nowhere to go
Rubble and stone block your path
You can't escape from it's wrath

-Chorus-

Hot flashes burst, melting down civilization
Leaving destruction and desolation
You're still alive but your luck is running out
It's not a dream God's told you it's over
It's over!!!

What can we do?
A creature of the night
Are we through?
Will this be our plight
Please save us. please
What did we wrong to you?
This holocaust is killing all of us

I've sent this beast to purify your kind
And for your world leave no life behind

Conquest complete, Mothra is nesting
Population for future infesting
Purification yes it's been achieved
For eternity Mothra reigns supreme

-Chorus-

STOP ME
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

When you see me you can't resist
You want my name on your telephone list
In your dreams and on your mind
Tonight's the night I could make you mine
Later on just me and you
I could make your dreams come true
You say for you I'm number one
Just meeting me is such fun

Chorus:
Oh no, you won't go, don't know what you're missin
You say, you won't stay, you stop me when we're kissin
Stop me when we're kissin

You come backstage to talk awhile
I wanna party 'cause that's my style
Young & tight you're what I need
Your fantasies I wanna feed
So come with me, back to my place
You know you've got such a pretty face
I'll show you how it is to be
Hanging around with a rocker like me

-Chorus-

Tellin me you've gotta run
Cuttin out before the damage is done
Come on babe that ain't no fun for me

Cuttin down ain't where it's at
You're just a tease and that's a fact
No more talk it's going nowhere
And neither are you, you just sit and stare
Time to go I'll say goodbye
I thought I saw tears in your eyes
You watch me leave in my limousine
And you go home to your poster dreams

-Chorus-

(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

- instrumental -

 

JACKHAMMER
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Slip away out the back door
Get away from the scenery score
In the car you're ready to move
In the backseat you start to groove

Right turn left turn got the boys in both hands
Playin in stereo like you do with most bands

Unlocking the door
I can tell you can't wait
Seekin power rockin
Girl you love to vibrate

Can't get to sleep 'cause I hear you squealin
Like a stuck little pig you love the feelin
I wish you'd shut up 'cause I'm tryin to sleep
I'm gonna gag you gonna push it down deep

Running out of breath
You're chokin fast
You begin to sputter
You're not gonna last

Chorus:
Jackhammer pounding your pile
Jackhammer you're gonna cream
Jackhammer that's your style
Jackhammer you're gonna scream

There you go again with your dirty little mind
Trying to turn me on won't happen this time
Hangin around and that won't do
Nothing on my mind but gettin rid of you

Time for you to leave
Can't take no more
Just wanna see you
Walking out the door

-Chorus-

 

HEAT SINK
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Tempered hot, ready or not, you know what I need
White hot steel, gotta be real, gotta forge to feed
Liquid lead my lust unfed, will soon be cold
My love will last within your cast, your body is my mold

Take the heat, burnin' treat, push & shove, red hot love

Blueing ore you want more, you just can't stop
Like a crane on a chain, I'll take you to the top
Got my hand on the firebrand, gonna mark you mine
Molten flesh our bodies mesh, oblivious to time

Take the heat, burnin' treat, push & shove, red hot love

Chorus:
Heat sink, I can't think of nobody but you
Heat sink, I'm on the brink, love's comin through

Crimson flames lovers' pains, sweat beads down my back
Clouds of smoke from the coal & coke, feel my heat attack

-Chorus-

Brittle glass, softening mass, reserves now are spent
Like tin weak and thin, frame work now is bent
the fire's down the burnin's stopped, leave me now to cool
Cold black waste you've had a taste of my heated tool

-Chorus-

 

TAG TEAM
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

The news is out there is a bout
Time and place are set
Admission is free if you want to see
Come and place your bets

Ringside seats just can't be beat
For the main event
They show their faces, take their places
Raging with contempt

Lights go down, smoke all around
Contenders eye each other
The challenge is made who'll make the grade
The ref pulls down the covers

At the centre of the ring they sway and swing
Exchanging fancy holds
When one's done they tag another one
How far will she go

Chorus:
Tag team baby - a camel clutch
Tag team baby - you are too much
Tag team baby - a scissor lock
Tag team baby - just wanna rock

On the ropes you're losing hope
In a hold we'll put you out cold
Got your back pinned down on the mat
Looks like we're the winners tonight

In round seven she's in heaven
How much can she take
Again and again she feels the strain
As she start the eighth

The bell is hit the stage is lit
She staggers to the centre
Opponents meet their body's heat
The boys tonight have spent her

She's going down she's on the ground
You can hear her howl
She can't take no more 'cause she's so sore
She's throwing in the towel
Ha, ha throwin in her towel

Gave your best but you lost the test
Didn't you know a way to win

Chorus:
Tag team baby - down for the count
Tag team baby - you lost the bout
Tag team baby - oh what a catch
Tag team baby - you blew the match

 

SCENERY
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

You were standing in your favourite light
You thought you were hot thought that you were tight
I've seen you and I know your type
I know you'll be at the party tonight

Chorus:
Scenery, that's all you are to me
Scenery, that's all you'll ever be

Dyed blonde hair makeup packed on thick
The way you look could make your mother sick
Gave me that look that I've seen before
Give up babe I find your type a bore

-Chorus-

Nothin to say but you said a lot
And in the end that's what you got
You think you're special but I can't agree
Your empty lines don't make it with me

-Chorus-

Made the party like I knew you would
Tried to impress me like you thought you could
It's all a game but I know the rules
Girls like you are backstage fools

Took from you all I could take
Your being here is a big mistake
Your empty lines got you a ticket to fly
And I've decided to say goodbye

-Chorus-

 

TEASE ME, PLEASE ME
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

It's getting late and I'm ready for you
There's a message that's coming on through
I'm all worked up no place to go
They tell me babe your all talk, no show
It's not the way it's supposed to be
You take my love, give nothin' to me
Nothin' to me, honey
I can't stand when you say no more
You know it's your love and I've gotta score

Chorus:
Don't just tease me, please me
Don't just tease me, please me
I try so hard but it does no good
Oh honey I wish you would

The feelings strong, I just can't wait
Bring home your love and don't be late
I've had enough of your teasin' ways
Your little games I don't wanna play
So change the rules and come to my side
I'm gonna take you on a rock 'n' roll ride
A rock 'n' roll ride!
There's more to me than meets the eye
So come on honey gonna give me a try

-Chorus-
Ooh wish ya would

Your game is over, it's my turn now
Relax babe I'm gonna show you how
You gave into me I knew you would
Givin' it to me I knew you could
Together now we will always be
Me with you and you with me
You and me babe, no other way
I was right and you were wrong
Ah listen baby 'cause here's my song

Chorus:
Don't just tease me, please me
Don't just tease me, please me
I got through and it felt good
Oh honey I knew it would

Yow
Don't just tease me, please me
C'mon
Don't just tease me, please me
C'mon baby
Don't just tease me, please me
????
Don't just tease me, please me
????
Don't just tease me, please me
????
Don't just tease me, please me
I wish you would
Don't just tease me, please me
????
Don't just tease me, please me

666
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Chains of death have been unleashed
Ripped and tattered stricken from hell
Sold my soul but the contract's been breached
Entering humanity from death's well

Your fate is sealed revelation is near
I hear your screams but I thrive off your fear
Received my warning but you didn't, didn't, didn't learn

666
666

Make my wars in the minds of man
Make the being itself fulfil my cause
Hitler and Manson were my right hand
To these men I entrusted my sacred laws

I'd rather be a king below than a servant above
I'd rather be free and hate than a prisoner of love
You heard my warning but you didn't, didn't, didn't learn

BACKWAXED
( Allison, Reiner, Lips, Dickson)
NOTE: This is an early, unreleased version, not the 'Backwaxed' version.

Your mommy always said don't take those boys to bed
It might feel good today but in 9 months you'll pay
??????????????
??????????????

Chorus:
Don't you worry, don't you fret
I've got a method that ain't thought of yet
Put it in and pull it out
Slap it on your back and watch it spout

I don't think you'll mind if I take ya from behind
Get you on your hands and knees, gonna put your mind at ease
??????????????
??????????????

-Chorus-
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed

Ow, I think things are coming through
??????????? looks good on you
Now the shine is on your back
Feel the heat of the wax attack

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, backwaxed

 

NEVER DECEIVE ME
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)
NOTE: This is an early, unreleased version, not the 'Forged In Fire' version.

Got a strange situation
I think that something's going down
I hear it being whispered
The rumour's out all over town
You see I got a little lady
Who I ain't been treatin' right
It's a crime the way I'm acting
I've been staying out all night

?????? with my bottle
??????????????
??????????????
And it's time to make ammends
I think that things are changing
By the way she looks at me
She keeps it all inside her
And she thinks that I can't see

Chorus:
If it's not too late
Try and change my fate
All I need is you to stay with me

Now my drink is almost empty
And I'll soon be on my way
We have to talk about it
It can't wait another day
Gotta get together
??????????????
??????????????
And lay it on the line

-Chorus-

Well I was walking in the rain
When I came upon the scene
She was kissing him goodnight
And I knew where she had been
Well it changed my life completely
And ever since that day
You won't keep me close enough
To hurt me in that way

-Chorus-

When I saw you with that other guy
You know it hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again
When I saw you with that other guy
You know you hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again
When I saw you with that other guy
You know you hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again
When I saw you with that other guy
You know you hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again

 

YOU'LL NEVER PUT THAT COLLAR ON ME
(Anvil original - don't know who specifically wrote it)

NOTE: This was later released on 'Forged In Fire' as 'Make It Up To You'.
*Unfortunately I have no recordings of this song and therefore no lyrics.

 

FORGED IN FIRE
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Scraping the Earth in search of the essence
Metallic rock ore where iron is present
Extraction smelters burn hot with phosphorescence

Rivulets of sweat steam hot in the mold
Splashes in magenta, yellow and gold
Glowing sparks flashing too hot to hold

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate

Power blasted streams engage the injection
The mechanism reacts with affection
Processing starts and so begins infection

Chorus:
Altered shape, affected matter
Giving form, an ominous factor
Never break it, it will never bend
The anvil was forged in fire

-Verse 1-

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate

-Chorus-
forged in fire
forged in fire
forged in fire
forged in fire

 

SHADOW ZONE
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

It happened fast, a final flash, that set the world on fire
And mankind paid a final debt to insatiable desire
Toxins linger, pollute the soil and prohibit germination
Tainted oceans choke out life inflicting termination

Barren land, desolate waste, destruction is complete
Surviving mutants walk the ruins in search of a retreat
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries

Eternal hell and damnation The forsaken long to die
In the end humanity caused its own demise

Decaying flesh in open graves, disease ridden corpse
Death lurks in all that lives, the Earth becomes a morgue
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries
In the end humanity caused its own demise

Chorus:
Beware the shadow zone
Death trap, the bomb has blow
Beware the shadow zone
Burn you down to the bone

Infected societies from power hungry nations
Insane world leaders and all their frustrations
If only those responsible could see what they have done
A war without survivors is a fight that's never won
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries

Eternal hell and damnation The forsaken long to die
In the end humanity caused its own demise

-Chorus 3X-
Beware the shadow zone

 

FREE AS THE WIND
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Running wild crazy and free
Being anything I want to be
Got no time for hanging around
Ain't nobody gonna tie me down
Spend my time doing what I please
Take the world on, got 'em on their knees
People think that I'm no good
Won't do the things they think I should

Life's confusing me and messin' me around
Don't know if I'm ever coming down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Play my music way too loud
My hair's too long, I don't fit in the crowd
Leather jacket and denim jeans
Metal studs run down the seams
Times are hard but I don't care
'Cause if I want it I'll take my share
Talkin' life on a bit too steep
Outta my way or I'll bury you deep

Gotta stop pushin' shovin' me around
Gotta stop tryin' to put me down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Lotta people got a lot to say
But I'm doing things my own way
'Cause I'm free as the wind

Maybe someday they will understand
Just why I choose to be my own man
It doesn't matter I ain't gonna change
The master plan should be rearranged
Breaking rules is what I do
On the bad side it's a better view
If it's too loud then you're too old
Get the hell out 'cause you've been told

Gotta stop pushin' shovin' me around
Gotta stop tryin' to put me down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Lotta people got a lot to say
But I'm doing things my own way
'Cause I'm free as the wind
Free as the wind
Free as the wind
Free as the wind
Free as the wind

BUTTER-BUST JERKY
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

All I need is a lady
With more than average size
She's gotta be a bit crazy
Won't take no compromise
If she can fill a "D" cup
It's good enough to keep me up

Get you down on your backside
I wanna see your wares
Gonna mount you for a good ride
Nothing else compares
Takin' one into each hand
Do as I command

Chorus:
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
And makin' me feel so good

Dip your fingers in the butter
Spread it all across your chest
In between one another
You know what I like best
Push 'em close together
The tighter the better

-Chorus-

-Verse 1-

Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky

FUTURE WARS
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

A place afar in distant dreams
Mystic winds blow
Men mount birds of prey to war
And raid each others shore
Wizards and Warlocks battle by night
One survives by cunning and might
Take what you can by sword and sabre
Just reward for perilous labour

Stands among them a natural King
A man of barbaric breed
In a blade of steel he lays his trust
Killing and taking his needs
Upon him the scars of battles gone by
From many who have gazed in his murderous eye
Astride his mount he cursed and then
Assembled his men in thousands and ten

Onward lads we'll kill them all
Victory is ours
We'll have their heads and female slaves
Soon to loot their towers
Riding hard they rushed the gates
And scaled the granite walls
Through boiling oil and falling stone
His men endured it all

In bloody streets the battle raged
Brave men died and women were caged
Amidst the hoard, a barbaric roar
He gut the guard and kicked down the door
Sword in one hand, torch in the other
Alert every step of the way
If legends be true this place is cursed
Demons stand guard night and day

Living hell cloaked in black
Three ungodly hosts
Upon the dais a ball of light
Which binds them to their post
Faster than a striking cobra
Hit the altar and knocked it over
Shattered in a silver shower
The priests of hell have lost their power

Up the stairs a golden door
The queen awaits within
Her naked body close to his
The prize is won again
And has she yields to his force
His mind drifts off to future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars
Future wars

 

HARD TIMES - FAST LADIES
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Three of you are all alone
On the road long way from home
No one here to
Tell you what to do tonight
You look at us and you think you might
Try us on for size

Dressed to kill you're looking hot
Give away everything you've got
Hoping that you

Gonna give you every inch of me - just you wait and see

Chorus:
Hard times - fast ladies
In heat, gonna drive us crazy
Hard times - fast ladies

Your friends and you promise us a lift

On the case do us like you should
Do the things you said you would
Don't hold back let's go

Faster faster that's the way
Coming through now, don't delay
We're the kind of guys you've been dreaming of

Comin' at you gonna do our best
All night, no rest
Gonna give you every inch of me
Just you wait and see

Now that all is said is done
The night is over and we've had our fun
Time for you to
Go your own way and we will to
One night's loving is enough for you
Memories remain

Comin' at you gonna do our best
All night, no rest
Gonna give you every inch of me
Just you wait and see

In heat, gonna drive us crazy

MAKE IT UP TO YOU
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

You make me feels so right
When you're around
Maybe I've gone astray
But you're the best I've found

Chorus:
Now I see things the way I really should
The lesson's learned I've change my ways for good
I'll make it all up to you

Seemed like all was lost
Things were going wrong
In time I found
It's with you I'm in love

-Chorus-

Please stay - don't go - Be by my side
I know that our love has never died

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-
Please stay - don't go - Be by my side
I know that our love has never died

I'll make it all up to you
I'll make it all up to you
I'll make it all up to you
I'll make it all up to you
I'll make it all up to you
I'll make it all up to you

 

MOTORMOUNT
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

You've tried them all from big to small
But no one's turned your crank
You're here tonight to get done right
I'm gonna fill your tank
Pull in the bay it's your lucky day
Get up on the hoist
From underneath we'll tool and grease
Gonna get you moist

What I see just can't be
Have to work you overtime
Gonna line you up and prime you up
Make you run so fine
Lift the hood if you know what's good
I wanna spark the gap
Fuel injection - no infection
Clean right to the cap

Ride the clutch Motormount
Drive all night
Grind the gears Motormount
Hold on tight

Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount(drive all night)

Dip my wrench into your stench
And twist the nuts up tight
Anticipate, Accelerate
And torque with all my might

Manifold - Got to hold
Transmission - Hydraulic spin

High speed ride - Power Glide
Can't survive overdrive

Pistons screaming, Rings are seizing
Think your valves are gone
Start to tire, then backfire
No longer can go on

Overheating - you're peaking
Start steamin' - watch you blow

High speed ride - Power Glide
Can't survive overdrive

Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount(drive all night)
Motormount

 

WINGED ASSASSINS
(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)

Machines made for killing at mach speed and more
Sleek in design and loaded for war
Sidewinding missiles, heat-seeks and sparrows
Strafing squadrons cause havoc and terror

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey

Camouflage colours impair observation
Insignia painted depicting its nation
Defying detection at low altitude
Penetrate, attack, evade and elude

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Winged assassins - seek their prey

Radar is sweeping and scanning the skies
Searching out targets with infrared eyes
Enemy forces appear on the screen
Computers lock in, all systems are green

Formation - Orders, permission to arm
Closing in - To make the kill

Trigger in hand, blood lust in his heart
The pilot is ready to play out his part
Underwing stores await a demand
Releasing the arsenal upon his command

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Permission is given to unleash the power
Rockets home in, strike and devour
Wreckage falls helpless rolling in flames
Another life wasted in some general's games

Task complete - Honours awaiting heroes
Painted scrap - Awarding murder

Winged assassins - seek their prey

BACKWAXED
( Allison, Reiner, Lips, Dickson)

Your mommy always said don't take those boys to bed
It might feel good today but in nine months you'll pay
I know it's your first time I'm gonna make you feel just fine
You say you never did and you're really unprepared

Chorus:
Don't you worry, don't you fret
I've got a method that ain't thought of yet
Put it in and pull it out
Slap it on your back and watch it spout

I don't think you'll mind if I take ya from behind
Get you on your hands and knees, put your mind at ease
Feel the throbbing what a treat as the wax begins to heat
I think it's almost there, gonna pull it out with care

-Chorus-
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed

Ow, I think things are coming through
??????????? looks good on you
Now the shine is on your back
Feel the heat of the wax attack

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed
Backwaxed, backwaxed, you're being backwaxed

 

STEAMIN'
(Reiner, Lips)

Steamin' for your love tonight
Won't you lay me down
Walkin' over looking hot and sweet
Babe you're hard to beat
It's time to get together with me babe
Won't ya lay me now
Know it's your first time for love
Let me show you how

Chorus:
Steamin' for your love tonight
Steamin' for your love
Steamin' for your love tonight
Steamin' for your love

Just relax and let your body go
Don't fight the feeling, oh no
Reaching heights you've never reached before
Won't you let me blow
Now it's done and you feel released
From your mad desire
Mine is blowin' out tonight
Won't you set the fire

-Chorus-

 

YOU'RE A LIAR
(Reiner, Lips)

When I first met you, thought we'd give it a try
I didn't think to see it in your eyes
You said you love me but that's a lie
And now I'm leaving so don't you cry
No tears baby

Chorus:
'Cause you're a liar
And it's true babe
???????????
???????????
You're a liar
I don't need you
Turn my back and you'll just
Hit the door

You said that things would be different with you, ha
I can't believe the things you said were true
I caught you cheating so now we're through
I don't want to be involved with you, No!
Not with you honey

-Chorus-

So go away and I'll try it again
I'll find a lady that won't cause me no shame
?????????????????? your lyin' games
But with my luck, no doubt you'd be the same
That's 'cause you're all the same baby
A bunch of no good lying bitches

-Chorus-

FRYIN' CRYIN'
(Reiner, Lips)

My friends told me about girls like you
That there's only one thing you like to do
That's gettin laid by the boys up here
Screamin', screamin' babe you feel no fear
But I want you young and clean
You're always comin' from down beneath
You are

I recall that when times are the same
Bringing your heart, you're the one to blame
That's why you're in need for love
You can't get away from us we like your stuff
Ain't no use stopping ????
'Cause when it's over you got to ?????

Chorus:
You're fryin', you're fryin', you're fryin'
???????
You're cryin', you're cryin', you're cryin'
All the way

Cry baby

-Chorus-

 

GOOD LOVE GONE BAD
(Anvil original - don't know who specifically wrote it)

Do you remember when we met and all the good times we had?
We partied all night long, oooh that made your daddy rather mad
Whenever we were not together ?????
Nothing stays the same
As time goes on we changed
Nothing stays the same
As time goes on we changed

Chorus:
Good love's gone bad
We've lost whatever we had
Good love's gone bad
We've lost whatever we had

Do you remember when we heard our song on the radio?
And I will ????? the times we sat around, watched the sun set below
And I recall when we went walking we would move so slow
Nothing stays the same
As time goes on we changed

-Chorus-

Do you remember what it was the made us split so far apart?
It seems like such a shame, I wish we could have stuck it at the start
But since we didn't want to know, we kept it ????? in our heart
Nothing stays the same
As time goes on we changed

-Chorus-

Good love's gone bad
We've lost whatever we had
Darling it's gone
