LET IT ROCK

The weekend comes to this town
Seven days too soon
For the ones who have to make up
What we break up of their rules
Well I saw Captain Kidd on Sunset
Tell his boys they’re in command
While Chino danced a tango
With a broomstick in his hand

He said: it’s alright (alright)
If you have a good time
It’s alright (alright)
If you want to cross that line
Break on through the other side

(Let it rock) – Let it rock
(Let it go) – Let it go
You can’t stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock – (Let it rock)
Let it go – (Let it go)
With the night you’re on the loose
Uh, gotta let it rock

We go down to the Broadway
Where everybody goes
To get off on their rockin’ horse
Blast that radio
Yeah, I saw Roxie on the table
Her girlfriend down below
They’ll give it all to the king of swing
Before it’s time to go

It’s alright (alright)
If you have a good time
It’s alright (alright)
If you want to cross that line
To break on through the other side

(Let it rock) – Let it rock
(Let it go) – Let it go
You can’t stop a fire burning out of control

Let it rock – (Let it rock)
Let it go – (Let it go)
You can’t stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock – (Let it rock)
Let it go – (Let it go)
With the night we’re on the loose
We gotta let it rock

Let it rock!

(Let it rock) – Let it rock
(Let it go) – Let it go
You can’t stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock – (Let it rock)
Let it go – (Let it go)
With the night we’re on the loose
Say everybody’s, say!
All right, yehhh-yeah
All right

YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME

Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
Darling, you give love a bad name

An angel’s smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven, then put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold on me
When passion’s a prison you can’t break free

(Who-ho-ho) You’re loaded gun, yeah
(Who-ho-ho) There’s nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)
And you give love a bad name

You paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boy’s dream, you act so shy
You very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

(Who-ho-ho) You’re loaded gun
(Who-ho-ho) There’s nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)
You give love

Ohhhhhh
Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)

Shot through the heart
And you’re to blame
You give love a bad name (bad name)
I play my part
And you play your game
You give love a bad name (bad name)

You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Bad name
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Bad name
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Bad name
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You give love (Who-ho-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

LIVIN’ON A PRAYER

Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck
It’s tough, so tough

Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man
She brings home her pay
For love, for love

She says: We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
For love – We’ll give it a shot

(Ohh) – We’re half way there
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Take my hand
We’ll make it, I swear
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer

Tommy got his six string in hock
Now he’s holding in what he used
To make it talk
So tough, it’s tough

Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers:
Baby it’s okay, someday

We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
For love – We’ll give it a shot

(Ohh) – We’re half way there
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Take my hand
We’ll make it, I swear
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Livin’on a prayer

We’ve got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when that’s all that you’ve got

(Ohh) – We’re half way there
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Take my hand
We’ll make it, I swear
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer

(Ohh) – We’re half way there
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Take my hand
We’ll make it, I swear
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer

(Ohh) – We’re half way there
(Ohh-oh) – Livin’on a prayer
Take my hand
We’ll make it, I swear

SOCIAL DISEASE

You can read it in the papers
In some places it comes in thirty-two flavors
But you wouldn’t tell no one your favorite
If you could

From the White House to the alleys
From the President down to Long Tall Sally
Can’t live with it but you’ll die without it
Yes you would

Senorita’s in the kitchen
She’s a fistful of dynamite
You call 911
But you can’t stop the fun tonight
It’s alright

You can’t start a fire without a spark
But there’s something that I guarantee
You can’t hide when infection starts
Because love is a social disease
Love is a social disease

Where you look you can find it
Try to run but you’re always behind it
So you play hide and seek like a blind kid
Till you’re caught – Yeah you’re caught

So you’ll say-ay that you had some
But they took it and held it for ransom
Were they tall, dark, skinny or handsome
You won’t talk

So you telephone your doctor
Just to see what pill to take
You know there’s no prescription
Gonna wipe this one away

You can’t start a fire without a spark
But there’s something that I guarantee
You can’t hide when infection starts
Because love is a social disease
Love is a social disease
Love is a social disease

Let the boy show you, baby

She’s so full of high grade octane
She could run the bullet train on 38 double D’s
Now you know for sure
She knows the cure
To make a blind man see

You can’t start a fire without a spark
But there’s something that I guarantee, yeah
You can’t hide when infection starts
Because love is a social disease
Love is a social disease

You can’t start a fire without a spark
But there’s something that I guarantee
You can’t hide when infection starts
Because love is a social disease
Love is a social disease, baby
Love is a social disease

You’re right
Love ain’t no shocking here

WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE

It’s all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we’re wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I’d drive all night just to get back home

I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it’s not for days
No people I meet, always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day by the bottle that you drink
And times when you’re alone all you do is think

I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive
Wanted (wanted) dead or alive

Oh, all right

I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
And I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I’m standing tall
I’ve seen a million faces and I’ve rocked them all

Cause I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted (wanted) dead or alive
And I’m a cowboy, I got the night on my side
And I’m a wanted (wanted) dead or alive
All right (all right) dead or alive
I still dirive (I still dirive) dead or alive
Dead or alive
Dead or alive
Dead or alive
Dead or alive

RAISE YOUR HANDS

You, you got a nasty reputation
We’re in a sticky situation
It’s down to me and you
So tell me: is it true
They say there ain’t nobody better
Well now that we’re together
Show me what you can do

You’re under the gun
Out on the run
Gonna set the night on fire
You’re out on the run
Under the gun
Playin’ to win

Raise your hands – When you want to let it go
Raise your hands – And you want to let a feeling show
Raise your hands – From New York to Chicago
Raise your hands – From New Jersey to Tokyo
(Ohh-oh) Raise your hands

I, I’ve been out on the front line
Where you’ll go down if you waste time
They’ll walk all over you
But I, I ain’t here looking for surrender
I’ll raise the flag if you’ll defend her
It’s up to you

You’re under the gun
Out on the run
Gonna set the night on fire
Out on the run
Under the gun
And playin’ to win

Raise your hands – When you want to let it go
Raise your hands – When you want to let a feeling show
Raise your hands – From New York to Chicago
Raise your hands – From New Jersey to Tokyo
(Ohh-oh) Raise your hands
(Ohh-oh) Raise your hands

All right, let’s go

Raise your hands
Raise your hands

Raise your hands – When you want to let it go
Raise your hands – And you want to let a feeling show

Raise your hands – New York
Raise your hands – Detroit
Raise your hands – Vancouver
Raise your hands – Hey London
Raise your hands – Sayerville, New Jersey
Raise your hands – Phoenix

WITHOUT LOVE

She wasn’t young, but still a child
There was still innocence in painted smiles
She called to me as I passed her by
Lady of the night looked in my eyes

She said: I been through some changes
But one thing always stays the same

Without love, there’s nothing without love
And nothing else can get through the night
And nothing else feels right without love

I saw a man down on lonely street
A broken man who looked like me
And no one knows the pain that he’s been living
He lost his love and still hasn’t forgiven

He said: I’ve been through some changes
But one thing always stays the same

Without love, there’s nothing without love
And nothing else can get through the night
Cause nothing else feels right without love
Ain’t nothing without love
Nothing else but love can burn as bright
Cause nothing would mean nothing without love

I see my life
Some things I took for granted
Love’s passed me by
So many second chances
I was afraid
I won’t be afraid no more

Without love, there’s nothing without love
Nothing else can get you through the night
Nothing else feels right without love
There’s nothing without love
And nothing else but love can burn as bright
Cause nothing would mean nothing without love

There’s nothing without love
And nothing without love
Nothing without love
Nothing without love
Nothing without love

I’D DIE FOR YOU

If you could see inside my heart
Then you would understand
I’d never mean to hurt you
Baby, I’m not that kind of man
I might not say I’m sorry
Yeah I might talk tough sometimes
And I might forget the little things
Or keep you hanging on the line

In a world that don’t know Romeo & Juliet
Boy meets girl and promises we can’t forget
We are cast from Eden’s gate with no regrets
Into the fire we cry

I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
I’d do anything
I’d lie for you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you
I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you

I might not be a savior
And I’ll never be a king
I might not send you roses
Or buy you diamond rings
But if I could see inside you
Maybe I’d know just who we are
‘Cause our love is like a hunger
Without it we would starve

In a world that don’t know Romeo & Juliet
Boy meets girl and promises we can’t forget
We are cast from Eden’s gate with no regrets
Into the fire we cry

I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
I’d do anything
I’d lie for you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you
I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you

I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
I’d do anything
I’d lie for you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you
I’d die for you
I’d cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it’s true
Baby, I’d die for you

(Oh-oh-oh) Baby, it’s only for you
It’s only for you
(Oh-oh-oh) Baby, it’s only for you
Only for you

NEVER SAY GOODBYE

As I sit in this smokey room
The night about to end
I pass my time with strangers
But this bottle’s my only friend

Remember when we used to park
On Butler Street out in the dark
Remember when we lost the keys
And you lost more than that in my backseat, baby

Remember how we used to talk
About busting out
We’d break their hearts
Together – Forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin’on, we’ve got to try
Holdin’on to never say goodbye

Remember days of skipping school
Racing cars and being cool
With a six pack and the radio
We didn’t need no place to go

Remember at the prom that night
You and me we had a fight
But the band they played our favorite song
And I held you in my arms so strong

We danced so close
We danced so slow
And I swore I’d never let you go
Together – Forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin’on, we’ve got to try
Holdin’on to never say goodbye

I guess you’d say we used to talk
About busting out
We’d break their hearts
Together – Forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin’on, we’ve got to try
Holdin’on to never say goodbye

WILD IN THE STREETS

Joey comes from a sacred part of town
Where sometimes you talk so tough
You feet don’t touch the ground
And the sidewalk soldiers sing their midnight blues
While the old men recite their story lines
About when I was young like you

They say:
Oh yeah – We were cruising to the backbeat
Oh yeah – Making love in the backseats

We were wild, wild in the streets
Wild, wild in the streets

A member of the boy’s brigade
Had a date with the girl next door
You know it made her daddy crazy
And it only made her want him more
They weren’t looking for trouble
That boy didn’t want a fight – not tonight
So she headed out through her bathroom window
What her daddy didn’t know was gonna be alright

They say:
Oh yeah – We were cruising to the backbeat
Oh yeah – Making love in the backseats

We were wild, wild in the streets
Wild, wild in the streets
We were wild, wild in the streets
Wild, wild in the streets

Breakbeat

Sometimes this town ain’t pretty
But you know it ain’t so bad
Just like a girl who looks so happy
When inside she’s so so sad
In here we got this code of honor
Nobody’s going down
You don’t walk in vain
Through the kid’s parade
‘Cause this is my hometown

Wild, wild in the streets
Wild, wild in the streets
We were wild, wild in the streets
Wild, wild in the streets
Yeah we were wild in the streets
Wild in the streets
Wild in the streets
Wild in the streets
Wild in the streets
Yeah we were wild in the streets
(Oh-oh-oh) Wild in the streets
(Oh-oh-oh) Wild in the streets
Wild!
