Alone Again
(Kilmister - ?)

Alone again, alone again
I'm in the twilight zone again
Another lonely star crossed night
Shivered to the bone again

They never stay, they always leave
I wear my heart upon my sleeve
I won't say what I don't believe
I turn another heart to stone again

Alone again
Can't stop the rain
Alone again
Put out the flame

Betrayed again, unmade again
Out of the sun, into the shade again
The silent room, the unsung tune
All the old games must be played again

And all the words we could not say
And all the nights and all the days
We quarreled in the same old ways
And all the same mistakes were made again

Alone again
Despair and Pain
Alone again
Can't break the chain

Alone again, alone again
To sit beside the silent phone again
And all the words we spoke were knifes
And so I'm here on my own again

The days are dark and drowned in tears
I know the game the rules are clear
I walk alone through all my years
I know you never will come home again

Alone again
Shot through the heart
Alone again
Tear me apart..

Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers
(Gibbons - Hill - Beard)

If you see me walkin' down the line,
With my fav'rite honky tonk in mind,
Well I'll be 'round by suppertime
With my can of dinner and a bunch of fine.

Beer drinkers and hell raisers,
Little girl, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

Crowd gets loud when the band gets right, 
New guitar flyin' through the night.
yeah, try'n to cover up the corner fight
Cos ev'rything's cool 'cause they's just tight.

Beer drinkers and hell raisers, yeah. 
Little girl, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

Hit it
(Solo)

See me dancin' like a cat on hot tin. 
I'm never never gonna give in.
Soundin' a lot like a House Congressional 
'cause we're experimental and professional.

Beer drinkers, hell raisers, yeah. 
Little girl, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

Cradle To The Grave
(?)

Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, could've been a loser
Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, rather be a boozer
Standing at the crossroads, see where the wind blows
Following the white line, following my nose

You've been living on a razor's edge, soon as you learned to shave
Make sure you live, be a long time dead
Cradle To The Grave

Ain't too good, don't look good, but it'll get worse
Don't look good, don't feel good, it's gonna take years
Life drives you nuts, babe, 'cos you ain't certain
Kicks you in the guts, babe, and leaves you hurting

Don't matter up or down, sideways, in or out
If it makes you feel good, do it, and then get out
Don't spend your life on your own bed
Cradle To The Grave

Ain't so bad, ain't so bad, could've been a junkie
Ain't so bad, ain't all bad, could've had a monkey
You can't take it with you, not even if you earn it
So find out what you need babe, then you'd better learn it

It don't matter who you are, millionaire or whore
Just get out and scrape that jar, that's what they've got it for
You've been living on a razor's edge, one way to behave
Make sure you do it, it'll cut you dead
Cradle To The Grave

Dead Mans Hand
(Kilmister - Burston - Campbell - Taylor)

Standing in the ruins with a stone cold heart
Lost in the wasted land
Prisond all alone in my cage of bone
Castles made of sand
Cry me a river, scream out loud
Burned and screaming in the endless crowd

(Chorus)
Hey, hey, hey, waiting for the marching band
Hey, hey, be the devil to pay
Cant beat the devil with a dead mans hand

Standing at the station, looking down the track
Waiting for the thunder chief
Black clouds fly in the blood red sky
Broken on the reef
Terminal station, gone dead train
Turn my face to the poison rain

(Chorus)

Waiting at the border with a pirate flag
See the sky turn black
Cold dead moon like a junkie spoon
Vultures at my back
Dust and ashes, blood red sun
Beast is loose and the race is run

(Chorus)

Dirty Love
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

I could use some dirty love,
You can't refuse my dirty love
That's what I need, to satisfy my greed
Come on over with your dirty love

I want to taste some dirty love,
Don't want to waste your dirty love
Whatever you got, you bet your life I won't ...
I want to grab your dirty love
Right there

I gotta have your dirty love
I gotta have your dirty love
I'll show you the way, to dirty love all night all day
I'm gonna teach you dirty love
Right now

Desire
(Ozzy Osbourne - Zakk Wylde - Randy Castillo - Lemmy Kilmister)

I always knew what I wanted to be
I knew for sure, I knew for sure
Always knew it was them or me
I wanted more, more and more
It's all right, it's O.K.
None of them people gonna take it away
They don't know like I know
And I can't stop 'cause it drives them crazy
It drives them crazy, 'cause I won't be cool
It's too late baby

(Chorus)
It's  the same old desire
Nothing has changed, nothing's the same
Burning like fire
Don't you ever take my name in vain

Always moving, somewhere else to be
Moving on, moving on
Scream at you and you scream at me
Right or wrong, right or wrong
It's all right, it's O.K.
No one's ever gonna take us away
'Cause they don't know like I know
I gotta keep rockin', 'cause it makes me crazy
It makes me crazy, who needs to be cool
Life's amazing

It's the same old desire
Crazy train, crazy train
Burning like fire
Don't you ever take my name in vain

(Chorus)

Game

Time to play the game

Time to play the game

Hahahaha

It's all about the game, and how you play it,
All about control, and if you can take it,
All about your debt, and if you can pay it,
It's all about pain (who's gonna make it?) 

I am the game, you don't wanna play me,
I am control, no way you can shake me,
I am heavy debt, no way you can pay me,
I am the pain and I know you can't take me.

Look over your shoulder, ready to run,
Like a flaming pitch from a smoking gun,
I am the game and I make the rules,
So move on out you can die like a fool, 
Try to figure out what my move's gonna be,
Come on over sucker, why don't you ask me?
Don't you forget there's a price you can pay,
Cause I am the game and I want to play.

Time to play the game,
Hahahaha,

It's all about the game, and how you play it,
It's all about control, and if you can take it,
It's all about your debt, and if you can pay it,
It's all about the pain (Who's gonna make it?)

I am the game (You don't wanna play me),
I am control (There's no way you can shake me),
I am your debt (and you know you can't pay me),
I am your pain (and I know you can't take me).

Play the game, you're gonna be insane,
You're gonna change your name,
You're gonna die in flames
Hahahahaha.

Time to play the GAME!

Eagle Rock
(Kilmister - Burston - Campbell - Taylor)

I dont know how I know it
But I sure know its true
I know that you can always find
Some way to make it through
You might not have the answers
You could still be in shock
It aint fair, but you wont care
Long as youre doing the Eagle Rock

I dont know how it figures
But I know thats the way
That everything is done round here
Every night and day
You may not have much money
You might not own a clock
But you wont care what time it is
Long as youre doing the Eagle Rock

Come on baby, let me see you dance
I know we could make out real good
Given half a chance
I know I aint too pretty
And I sure do drink a lot
But you wont mind that, when you find that
Youve been flying with the Eagle Rock

Emergency
(Heath - Robinson)

Gotta make out things they said
Spent too many nights getting out of my head
They must be mad, must be blind
Driving me crazy right out of my mind 

Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency
Oh No!
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency Emergency Emergency 

Can't seem to think, can't decide
Times running out on the other side
Where to run, what to do
Better not hide so I can't find you 

Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency
Oh No!
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)
Nine nine nine Emergency (Emergency)

Eve of Destruction
(?)

The eastern world
It is explodin'.
Violence flarin'
Bullets loadin'.
You're old enough to kill,
But not for votin'.
You don't beleive in war,
But what's that gun you're totin'?
And even the Jordan River
Has bodies floatin'.

But ya tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend,
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction

And don't you understand
What I'm tryin' to say
And can't you feel the fears
That I'm feelin' today?
If the button is pushed,
There's no runnin' away.
There'll be no one to save
With the world in a grave.
Take a look aroun you, boy.
It's bound to scare you, boy

And ya tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend,
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction

But think of all the hate
There is in red China.
Then take a look around
To Selma, Alabama.
You may leave here
For four days in space,
But when you return
It's the same old place.
The poundin' of the drums,
The pride and disgrace.
You can bury it dead,
But don't leave a trace.
Hate your next door neighbor,
But don't forget to say grace.

And tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend,
You don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction
Ah, no, no, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction.

Evolution
(?)
Evolution is a mystery,
Full of change that no one sees,
Clock makes a fool of history.
Yesterday's too long ago,
Don't agree with what I know,
Tomorrow becomes a new place to be.

I see the line in the sand,
Time to find out, who I am!
Lookin' back to see where I stand.
Evolution!
Evolution!

See my reflection change,
Nothin' ever stays the same,
But you know the name's The Game.
We all know what it means,
Nothin's ever what it seems,
Unforgiven... unforseen.

I see the line in the sand,
Time to find out, who I am!
Lookin' back to see where I stand.
Evolution!
Evolution!

Hardcore
(D. Snider)

Well, he don't care what people say
Hardcore metal's here to stay
And he don't know from right or wrong
He's hard and hungry, lean and strong
All right, let's go, yeah right
You know that he's home out on the road

(Pre-Chorus)
Born to lose, not to die
Ask no questions, tell no lies
Sworn to fun, heeds the call
Lives to rock, it's him against them all

(Chorus)
He's hardcore (hardcore)
Hardcore (hardcore)
Nothin' less, nothin' more
He's hardcore (hardcore)
Hardcore (hardcore)
To the death, that's for sure

The power chord is all he needs
Kill or be killed his only creed
While death is certain, life is not
So he strikes while the iron's hot
C'mon, let's go, yeah right
He lives a hard life, it's all he knows

Rides to live, lives to ride
The iron horse by his side
Axe in hand blasts away
Then moves on to rock another day

(Chorus)
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Chorus)

All right

Hoochie Coochie Man
(Willie Dixon)

Gypsy woman told my mother, before I was born
Got a boy child comin', he'll be a son of a gun
Gonna make all these women jump and shout
All the world's gonna know, what it's all about

Cause you know I'm here, everybody knows I'm here
I'm a hoochie coochie man, everybody knows I'm here 

Got a black cat bone, got a mojo too
Gotta sing John the Conqueroo, gonna mess with you
Gonna take all your pretty girls, lead you by your hand
All the world's gonna know I'm the hoochie coochie man

Cause you know I'm here, everybody knows I'm here
I'm a hoochie coochie man, everybody knows I'm here 

On the seventh hour, of the seventh day, 
Of the seventh month, seven doctors say
He was born for good luck, and can't you see
I got seven million deutschmarks baby, don't you mess with me

Cause you know I'm here, everybody knows I'm here
I'm a hoochie coochie man, everybody knows I'm here 

(* John the Conqueroo and mojo = Louisiana voodoo charms)

Hump On Your Back
(?)

I don't need no, I don't need no slack
Don't you do it, it'll stop you in your tracks
You might think it's clever, not enough forever
But a monkey on your back

Ain't no future, the late night ain't the way
If you got problems, face them now today
Cos there ain't no use in hidin', but you'll watch your girlfriends dyin'
The monkey makes you pay

Tell'em

You might think I ain't got no place to preach
But paradise is right there in your reach
But I'm here to tell ya, heroin's gonna kill ya
The monkey's just a leech

I'm Your Witch Doctor
(J. Mayall)

I'm your witch doctor, got an evil eye
I'm your witch doctor, set souls on your fire
Gonna bring you love, in the midnight hour
Gonna feel you burning like a passion flower

I'm singing ....

Your witch doctor, your witch doctor
Got my eyes on you

I need a voodoo and that's at night
I'll be your voodoo in the morning light
Gonna bring you love, in the midnight hour
Gonna feel you burning like a passion flower

I'm singing ....

Your witch doctor, your witch doctor
Got my eyes on you
Your witch doctor, your witch doctor
Got my eyes on you
I got my mean old spell on you
I got my mean old spell on you
Your witch doctor, your witch doctor
Got my eyes on you
I'm your witch doctor, got an evil eye
I'm your witch doctor, set souls on your fire
Gonna bring you love, in the midnight hour
Gonna feel you burning like a passion flower

I'm singing ....
Your witch doctor, your witch doctor
Got my eyes on you

It's a Long Way to the Top
(Young - Young - Scott)
(Thunderbolt - A Tribute To AC/DC contains this song featuring 
Lemmy - vocals, bass and rhythm guitar, 
Jake E. Lee - lead guitar
Simon Wright - drums)

Drivin' down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stoppin' on the by-way
Playin' rock 'n' roll
Gettin' mauled
Gettin' stoned
Gettin' beaten
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you think it's easy doin' one night stands
Try playin' in a rock 'n' roll band
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll

Hotel, motel
Make you wanna cry
Ladies on the hard sell
You know the reason why
Gettin' old
Gettin' grey
Gettin' ripped off
Under-paid
Gettin' sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playin' in a band

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
Listen to me
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out honey, it's rough and it's mean
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll

Jumpin' Jack Flash
(Rolling Stones)

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a gas! Gas! Gas!

I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,
I was schooled with a strap right across my back,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a gas! Gas! Gas!

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head.
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a gas! Gas! Gas!

Just 'Cos You Got The Power
(?)

You might be a financial wizard,
With a sack of loot,
All I see is a slimy lizard,
With an expensive suit,
Go on and run your corporation,
Go and kiss some ass,
You might buy half of the nation,
But you can't buy class.

You bastards think it's funny,
Lyin' and thieving all your life,
Think all there is money,
Got your future strapped up tight,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

You can take my fingers babe,
You can take my eyes,
You can take my past and future,
It won't make you wise,
You can have me thrown in jail,
You can steal my booze,
You can even read my mail,
Step on my blue suede shoes.

You bastards must be clever,
Got it mapped out in black and white,
But don't forget you'll never,
Get a dog to walk upright,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

Go on out make another deal,
Feed your big fat face,
Go on out and cop a feel,
Get on somebody's case,
You surely would be satisfied,
If you could have it all,
But time ain't on your side,
You're going to the wall.

You think that life's all dollars,
Greed and lust and spite,
But I wasn't born to follow,
Like to get my sleep at night,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

Killed By Death
(Kilmister - Burston - Campbell - Gill)

If you squeeze my lizard
I'll put my snake on you
I'm a romantic adventure
And I'm a reptile too

(Chorus)
But it don't make no difference
'cos I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I'm easy's when I'm
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death

I'm a lone wolf ligger
But I ain't no pretty boy
I'm a backbone shiver
and I'm a bundle of joy

(Chorus)
But it don't make no difference
'cos I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I'm easy's when I'm
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death

King Of Kings
(?)

Behold the King, the King of Kings.
On your knees dog. All hail.

Bow down to the, bow down to the King.
Bow down to the, bow down to the King.

The King grinned red as he walked from the place,
Where the traitor lost both his name and his face.
Through the halls and the corridors stinging in blood,
He tasted his grin and it tasted good.
The King took his head. Left him broken and dead.

Bow down to the, bow down to the King.
Bow down to the, bow down to the King.
Bow down to the, bow down to the King.

The King left none living, none able to tell.
The King took their heads and he sent them to hell.
Their screams echoed loud in the place of their death.
Ripped open they died. With their final breath.
They hailed to the King, the King of Kings.

Bow down to the, bow down to the King.
Bow down to the, bow down to the King.
Bow down to the, bow down to the King.

Into the dirt, his will be done.
Now feel your fear, there can be only one.

Bow down, bow down, bow down ...
Bow down, bow down to the ...
Bow down, bow down to the King ...
Bow down, bow down, bow down, bow down ...

The King is here, now feel your fear.
The King of Kings.

All hail, all hail the King.
On your knees, on your knees for the King.

The King of Kings, there is only one.

Like a Nightmare
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

I wanna be there,
I got to see,
I wanna feel it,
I wanna watch you looking at me

Oh you know how I feel,
When you set me free
Like a nightmare,
Like a nightmare,
Like a nightmare
Nightmare

It's an affliction
It's a disease
But no reflection
It's gonna make your blood freeze

Oh you know how I feel,
When you set me free
Like a nightmare,
Like a nightmare,
Like a nightmare
A Nightmare

I can't believe you,
You can't be true,
???
???

I know how you feel,
I'm gonna set you free
Like a nightmare,
Like a nightmare sugar,
Like a nightmare
Nightmare

Station to station beating up the track
Check on your time 'cos I ain't never coming back.

(Chorus)

Stoke up your fire babe burning up your nerve

Power and glory burning up the rails

(Chorus)
You know I'm loaded

Railroaded

I'm a locomotive.

Louie, Louie
(Chuck Berry)

Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go. 
Yi-yi-yi-yi-yi 
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.

You're my little girl, she's waiting for me. 
I sail a ship across the sea. 
On the ship you know I'm all alone. 
I wonder if I'll ever make it home. 

Louie Louie, oh no, we gotta go. 
Yi-yi-yi-yi-yi 
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.

Three nights and days I sailed the sea. 
I think of girls oh constantly. 
On the ship you know I dream she's there. 
I smell the roses in her hair. 

Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go. 
Yi-yi-yi-yi-yi 
Louie Louie, oh yeah, we've gotta go.

I see the Jamaica moon above. 
I don't know when I'm gonna see my love
I know I'll hold her in my arms and then
I'll tell her that I'll never leave her again

Louie Louie, achacha,
Louie Lou
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.

On The Road
(?)

You know the rules, you all know the game
Try and do whats right
But you know I can't complain
If I die tonight
'Cos you know it wouldn't be so easy
'Cos life ain't that way
And you know I've got unfinished business
Got a word to say
On The Road

Bet your life it ain't no easy livin'
But you won't hear me bitch
Spent as much time taking as giving
I've got the ten year itch
But I wouldn't change the situation
If I could start again
'Cos you know I've got a bad reputation
But I don't feel no shame
On The Road

Don't you listen to a single word
Against rock'n'roll
The new religion, the electric church
The only way to go
There's only one thing that I need
To make my life alright
I just want the one I want
I want her every night
On The Road

Over The Top
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

Shoot, shoot, shoot, hey!
Please tell me kind, I'm out of my mind
And I'm telling you
It's not that I'm bad, I'm totally mad
I'm a boogaloo

I'm certain, I must be a burden
Completely....
Over the top, over the top!

I don't know what it means, all I hear is screams
And I don't know whose
The nightmares are real, I got a raw deal
And it's all bad news

I swear it, I can't get it
Completely...
Over the top, over the top!

You know it's no lie, my main alibi
It's a waste of time
You know it's the truth, the lyrics the proof
And at least it rhymes

You can have me, 'cos I'm barmy
Completely...
Over the top, over the top!

Please Don't Touch
(Heath - Robinson)

Well there ain't no other woman
that can make me feel this way,
Gets up close you know, I just ain't got a word to say.

Please Don't Touch
I shake so much,
Please Don't Touch
I shake so much.

I don't know why she's got her claws in me,
'Cause I ain't fighting baby, can't you see,
Sneaking up the stairway, running like a thief,
Spend the night shaking like a leaf,
Oh I remember the first time I took her to a cheap motel,
Well I woke up drunk, you know I felt like Eskimo Nell.

Please Don't Touch
I shake so much,
Please Don't Touch
I shake so much.

Well I get so nervous when I see his eyes that shine,
Gets too close and a chill runs down my spine.

Please Don't Touch
I shake so much,
Please Don't Touch
I shake so much.

Remember Me, I'm Gone
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

I can't believe it, that I lost you,
Coulda made it happen, but it didn't come true,
Some other guy got you home and dry,
Only been the one, same old song,
Remember Me, I'm Gone

You're such a beauty, one of my best,
Could've stopped me running, could have beat the rest,
Now another face occupies my place,
Guess I'm not the one, the same old song,
Remember me, I'm Gone

I miss all the good times, you know your name,
You ain't mine no longer, it' a crying shame,
Now your old man got you in the slam,
Must have done you wrong, same old song,
Remember me, I'm Gone

Shoot 'Em Down 
(?)

Come on, boys!

She looks so fine like champagne or wine, no one ever gets her
Oh, ain't she cool, plays us for fools if we wanna let her
Across the room she sees some buffoon blown away by her style
She goes out of her way so that she can play and make him beg for a little while.

(Chorus)
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down to the ground

Like caviar or a fine foreign car, he's a motivator
Dressed to the T's, they're down on their knees, he's master baiter
He'll make 'em crawl for the hell of it all, he likes to see 'em cry
And then just for fun he'll say she's the one and then he'll make her die
He's gonna,

(Chorus)

They don't care about feelings, they were meant to be stepped on
And while one is healing, they go and step on another one

Now, these people prey on us every day, some are bad, some badder
They think we're fools, so they make their own rules, it only gets us madder
Well, they think they're hot, well, I say they're not, they shoot us down for fun
If they wanna play, let's make 'em pay, shoot them down with a fuckin' gun.

(Chorus)

Snaggletooth
(Kilmister - Burston - Campbell - Gill)

Though I was done for now, well here's a big surprise
'Cos I keep coming back, I can't be exorcised
I'm like a nightmare babe, I'm here to mess with you
I'll make your hair stand up and I'll make your lips turn blue

(Chorus)
I'm gonna raise your roof
Ring your bell and that's the truth
Speed don't kill and I'm the proof
Just call me Snaggletooth

I've just been waiting here, and you were late again,
But I knew you'd be back, I hoped you'd bring a friend
I want you to believe that there is no way out
You're in the snakepit, babe, there's a lot of it about

(Chorus)

So now you know my name, I guess you realise
Don't try to fight babe, I got you hypnotised
And sometime late tonight you'll hear the were wolf call
Gonna be old Snaggletooth gotcha by the balls!

(Chorus)

Speedfreak
(alt. version)
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

Note that all the lines in each verse are said 
at the same rhythm as the first line 
(listen to line 3 of the album version and
you'll see why I mention this). 
The bits in brackets sort of 'fade' in, 
as if Lemmy's sort of forgetting to say the line 
and not getting close enough the the mike in time.

I Got to hurry, Got to hurry 
Don't you worry, got to worry, 
Take it back, take it back, 
Don't do that, you can't do that 

Don't want no sleep 
Stay up a week, 'Cause I'm a speedfreak. 
Speedfreak. 

Way too fast, way too fast 
First and last, first and last 
Shoot you down, shoot you down 
To the ground, to the ground 
Don't want no sleep Stay up a week, 
'Cause I'm a speedfreak. 
(Baby I'm a) Speedfreak. 

Space Cadet, space cadet 
No regrets, no regrets 
Comin' down, comin' down 
Spinning round, spinning round 
Don't want no sleep Stay up a week, 
'Cause I'm a speedfreak. 
(Baby I'm a) Speedfreak.

Steal Your Face
(Kilmister - Burston - Campbell - Gill)

He moves so slowly but he's coming after you
Nowhere to hide and not a thing that you can do

You're on his mind, you're on his mind

You're gonna leave the human race,
You know you can't stand the pace
Gonna sink without a trace
He's gonna steal your face

Don't try to run, he's gonna find you day or night

Just sit and shiver and be ready for the bite
You're on his mind, you're on his mind
You're lost in hostile space, gonna feel the cold embrace
You're in a state of grace, he's gonna steal your face

Nowhere to run you know he's never far away
Knows where you are and he gets closer every day

You're on his mind, you're on his mind

And I'll bet that he can't wait
You know he's gonna take the bait
Gonna be on your case
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face

Summertime Blues
(The Who)

I'm a gonna raise a fuss
I'm a gonna raise a holler
about a workin' all summer
just to try to earn a dollar
ev'ry time I call my Baby
try to get a date
my Boss says
No dice, Son,you gotta work late.

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
but there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues.

A well my Mom 'n' Papa told me
Son, you gotta make some money,
if you wantta use the carto go a ridin' next Sunday,
well
I didn't go to work
told the Boss I was sick
Now you can't use the car,'cause you didn't work a lick.

(I'm gonna) take two weeks
gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem
to the United Nations !
Well
I called my Congressmen
and he quote
I'd like to help you, Son,but you're too young to vote.

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
but there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues.

Thirsty And Miserable
(Black Flag)

Thirsty And Miserable
You Drop To The Floor
You Drink 'til You Can't
Even See Any More

Thirsty And Miserable
Always Wanting More
Thirsty And Miserable

My Brother Wants A Ride
To The Liquor Store
You Pity Him
For What He Wants It For

And We're All Getting Nervous
The Store Closes At Two
There's Not Enough To Last Us

Too Late, Too Late
(Kilmister - Clarke - Taylor)

I see that nothin's changed
Insist on playing games
Some waste of time you are
And you're so popular
Well this is it you bitch
I've got to make a switch
You find some other john
I know what's goin' on

Your move
What do I have to lose?
Stalemate
Too late, too late

I thought you were for real
Just one more rip-off deal
Don't give me all that crap
I just escaped your trap
You think you see the joke
But you're just chasin' smoke
Cos now the thrill is gone
I know what's goin' on

Good move
What do I have to lose?
Stalemate
Too late, too late

Misunderstanding me
The way you felt so free
I'm gonna jump the gun
I'm gonna cut an' run
Your credibility
Don't cut no ice with me
You're just a feeble con
I know what's goin' on

Good move
What do I have to lose?
Stalemate
Ow ow ow Too late, too late
Too late, too late

Treat Me Nice
(Clarke)

Baby I'm here to tell you, ain't nobody like me
I ain't never done nothin' to cause you misery
I don't say I'm a good man, I ain't the best you can find
But deep down in the dog babe, I drive you out of your mind

Treat me nice,
Oh baby treat me nice
Take it slow and easy baby
Take it slow, good and right

Baby listen to me now, ain't nobody like you
You ain't done never nothin' that I wouldn't do
I don't want to be evil, that ain't what I'm about
But deep down in the dog honey, make you jump and shout

Treat me nice,
Come on baby treat me nice
Take it slow and easy baby
Take it slow, good and right

You know I'll be back baby, you know I can't stay away
Take it slow and easy honey, make it all night and all day
I won't stop till it's over, till you feel real good
Deep down in the dog dog night, just like a bad boy would

Treat me nice,
Baby baby treat me nice,
Take it slow, slow, slow and easy
Take it slow and make it right

Turn You Round Again
(Kilmister - Taylor - Robertson)

Nobody promised you it would be easy, not even fair,
But a lot of people said 'Lean on me', and they weren't there
If it's any consolation, they're all the same,
And if you lose your head, you lose the game,
And it's all, an uphill run, you know it ain't much fun,
You know we're all the same, Turn You Round Again.

Everyone said, 'Come over here and be like me',
I didn't want to know, ain't no place to be,
If it's any consolation, you're all the same,
But it's a different face, with a different name,
But it's all, an uphill run, you know it ain't much fun,
You know we're all the same, Turn You Round Again.

I'm gonna tell you something, you must believe,
I've got a hat full of jokes, waiting up my sleeve,
Forget cancellations, I know the game,
It's a different face, but the name's the same,
And it's all, an uphill run, you know it ain't much fun,
And I'll Turn You Round Again, again.

Under the Knife #1
(Burston - Kilmister - Campbell - Gill) 

Hey babe, I think you're under the knife, 
You won't listen to me. 
You ain't in prison but you're servin' life, 
Just you wait and see. 
I bet you thought it was the great escape, 
I think you might've been wrong. 
But if you're right I'll just kiss you goodnight, 
Already long, long, gone. 

I can't fight it, I ain't gonna fight it, 
Even to save my life. 
I can't get ya face to face, 
I think you're under the knife. 

You're gonna be there every day, 
I hope it's where you wanted to be. 
I hope that he treats you real good, 
I hope that he'll keep you free. 
I don't think that you deserve me babe, 
I wouldn't bet that anyone does. 
But if you decide that I'm still worth a try, 
I still remember the buzz.

I can't fight it, I won't try to fight it, 
Even to save your life. 
I can't get ya face to face, 
I hope you ain't under the knife. 

Solo.

When we were good it used to scare me to death, 
I sure remember it well. 
Lathered it sweat an' both fighting for breath, 
Gave each other hell. 
I know I ain't yours an' you sure ain't mine, 
We both took real good care of that. 
So roll your dice, and I hope you feel nice, 
I'll find somewhere to hang my hat.

I won't fight it, I ain't gonna fight it, 
Even to save your life. 
I can't get ya face to face, 
I think we're under the knife. 
(I think we're under the knife).

(Burston - Kilmister - Campbell - Gill) 

Ow! I'm here to bare your soul, 
Specialise in Rock 'N' Roll. 
I'll fit you up to stay, 
I'll parade on you today. 
You won't need no progress chart, 
Gonna open up your heart.

On your feet or on your knees! 

'Cause I know the score, 
And I know I'm right. 
And I know you know I know,

But I know what I'm gonna do to you. 
Hey babe, you're under the knife! 

Faith healer hear me speak, 
I only rule in tongue in cheek. 
Have you back to one, two, three, 
Shoot you full of R 'n' B. 
You ain't gonna feel no pain, 
Steel needle in your brain. 
Twisted sister, nurse it's worse, 
An' it's only the second verse!

And I know I'm right. 
And I know you know I know, 
And you're fighting for your life. 
And you know that I know you, 
You won't believe the things I'll do, 
But I know what I'm gonna do to you. 
Hey babe, you're under the knife! 

You know I'm right. 
The Knife! Three piece! 
I got a brand new bed for you, 
With a built in massage too. 
Penicillin stop the rot, 
Remove every stitch you got. 
Breath out. Breath in. 
X-Ray gonna do you in. 
I ain't gonna send no bill, 
Come back when you're on the pill! 

'Cause I know the cure, 
And I know I'm right. 
And I know you know I know, 
And you're fighting for your life. 
And you know that I know you, 
You won't believe the things I'll do, 
But I know what I'm gonna do to you. 
We'll cut you under the knife! 

Mangle it Wurzel! 
Cut you down. 
Alright!.... Alright!.... Alright!.... 
Ahhhhhh Shut Up!

You ain't Gonna Live Forever
(Clarke)

Stay out of trouble, listen to your mother, 
Don't talk to strangers, stay away from danger
Do whatever you like, just be good to yourself
You can't be safe, mixed up with the human race

You must be a good boy, don't you be a true boy
Cuts in between, and don't you be a rude boy
If you don't do it right you'll make a fool of yourself
You gotta show them fools, what you think of their rules

You ain't gonna live forever,
You ain't gonna live forever,
So live right now.

Stay out of jail, don't tamper with the mail
Don't be a loser, don't you be a loser
Do you whatever you like, don't get ahead of yourself
You can't be clean, if you know what I mean

You ain't gonna live forever,
You ain't gonna live forever,
So live right now.

Go for it.
