It's So Easy

     I see your sister in her Sunday dress
     She's out to please
     She pouts her best
     She's out to take
     No need to try
     She's ready to make

     It's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby
     It's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me

     Cars are crashin' every night
     I drink n' drive everything's in sight

     But I miss the firefight
     I hit the bull's eye every night

     It's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby
     Yeah it's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me
     So easy
     But nothin' seems to please me
     It all fits so right
     When I fade into the night
     See me hit you
     You fall down

     I see you standin' there
     You think you're so cool
     Why don't you just
     Fuck off

     Ya get nothin' for nothin'
     If that's what ya do
     Turn around bitch I got a use for you
     Besides you ain't got nothin' better to do
     And I'm bored

     It's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby
     It's so easy, easy
     When everybody's tryin' to please me
     So easy
     But nothin' seems to please me

Nightrain

     Loaded like a freight train
     Flyin' like an aeroplane
     Feelin' like a space brain
     One more time tonight
 
     Well I'm a west coast struttin'
     One bad mother
     Got a rattlesnake suitcase
     Under my arm
     Said I'm a mean machine
     Been drinkin' gasoline
     And honey you can make my motor hum
     Well I got one chance left
     In a nine live cat
     I got a dog eat dog sly smile
     I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go
     I smoke my cigarette with style
     An I can tell you honey
     You can make my money tonight

     Wake up late honey put on your clothes
     Take your credit card to the liquor store
     That's one for you and two for me by tonight
     I'll be loaded like a freight train
     Flyin' like an aeroplane
     Feelin' like a space brain
     One more time tonight

     I'm on the nightrain
     Bottoms up
     I'm on the nightrain
     Fill my cup
     I'm on the nightrain
     Ready to crash and burn
     I never learn
     I'm on the nightrain
     I love that stuff
     I'm on the nightrain
     I can never get enough
     I'm on the nightrain
     Never to return - no

     Loaded like a freight train
     Flyin' like an aeroplane
     Speedin' like a space brain
     One more time tonight
 
     I'm on the nightrain
     And I'm lookin' for some
     I'm on the nightrain
     So's I can leave this slum
     I'm on the nightrain
     And I'm ready to crash an' burn
     Nightrain
     Bottoms up
     I'm on the nightrain
     Fill my cup
     I'm on the nightrain

     Whoa yeah
     I'm on the nightrain
     Love that stuff

     An I can never get enough
     Ridin' the nightrain

     On the nightrain
     Float me home
     Ooh I'm on the nightrain
     Ridin' the nightrain
     Never to return
     Nightrain
 

Out Ta Get Me

     Been hidin' out
     And layin' low
     It's nothin' new ta me
     Well you can always find a place to go
     If you can keep your sanity
     They break down the doors
     And they rape my rights but
     They won't touch me
     They scream and yell
     And fight all night
     You can't tell me
     I lose my head
     I close my eyes
     They won't touch me
     'Cause I got somethin'
     I been buildin' up inside
     For so fuckin' long

     CHORUS:

     They're out ta get me
     They won't catch me
     I'm fuckin' innocent
     They won't break me

     Sometimes it's easy to forget where you're goin'
     Sometimes it's harder to leave
     And everytime you think you know just what you're doin'
     That's when your troubles exceed
     They push me in a corner
     Just to get me to fight but
     They won't touch me
     They preach and yell
     And fight all night
     You can't tell me
     I lose my head
     I close my eyes
     They won't touch me
     'Cause I got somethin'
     I been buildin' up inside
     I'm already gone

     They're out ta get me
     They won't catch me
     'Cause I'm innocent
     They won't break me

     Some people got a chip on their shoulder
     An some would say it was me
     But I didn't buy that fifth of whisky
     That you gave me
     So I'd be quick to disagree

     CHORUS

     They're out to get me
     They won't catch me
     'Cause I'm innocent
     So you can suck me
     Take that one to heart
 

Mr. Brownstone

     I get up around seven
     Get outta bed around nine
     And I don't worry about nothin' no
     Cause worryin's a waste of my ... time

     The show usually starts around seven
     We go on stage around nine
     Get on the bus about eleven
     Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine

     CHORUS:

     We been dancin' with
     Mr. Brownstone
     He's been knockin'
     He won't leave me alone
     No, no, no - oh
     He won't leave me alone

     I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
     So the little got more and more
     I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
     Said a little better than before
     I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
     So the little got more and more
     I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
     Said a little better than before

     CHORUS

     Now I get up around whenever
     I used ta get up on time
     But that old man he's a real muthafucker
     Gonna kick him on down the line

     I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
     So the little got more and more
     I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
     Said a little better than before
     I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
     So the little got more and more
     I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
     Said a little better than before

     CHORUS
 

Paradise City

     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     Take me home
     (back vocals)
     I want you please take me home
     (x 2)
 
     Just a' urchin livin' under the street
     I'm a hard case that's tough to beat
     I'm your charity case
     So buy me somethin' to eat
     I'll pay you at another time
     Take it to the end of the line

     Ragz to richez or so they say
     Ya gotta-keep pushin' for the fortune and fame
     You know it's
     It's all a gamble
     When it's just a game
     Ya treat it like a capital crime
     Everybody's doin' their time

     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     I want you please take me home

     CHORUS:
 
     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     Take me home

     Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
     Why I'm here I can't quite remember
     The surgeon general says it's hazardous to breathe
     I'd have another cigarette but I can't see
     Tell me who you're gonna believe

     CHORUS

     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     I want you please take me home

     So far away
     So far away
     So far away
     So far away

     Captain America's been torn apart
     Now he's a court jester with a broken heart
     He said -
     Turn me around and take me back to the start
     I must be losin' my mind - "Are you blind?"
     I've seen it all a million times

     CHORUS

     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     I want you please take me home

     CHORUS

     Take me down
     To the paradise city
     Where the grass is green
     And the girls are pretty
     I want you please take me home
 

My Michelle

     Your daddy works in porno
     Now that mommy's not around
     She used to love her heroin
     But now she's underground
     So you stay out late at night
     And you do your coke for free
     Drivin' your friends crazy
     With your life's insanity

     Well, well, well you just can't tell
     Well, well, well my Michelle
     LOOK OUT!

     Sowin' all your wild oats
     In another's luxuries
     Yesterday was Tuesday
     Maybe Thursday you can sleep
     But school starts much too early
     And this hotel wasn't free
     So party till your connection call
     Honey I'll return the key

     CHORUS:

     Well, well, well you just can't tell
     Well, well, well my Michelle
     Well, well, well you never can tell
     Well, well, well my Michelle

     Everyone needs love
     You know that it's true
     Someday you'll find someone
     That'll fall in love with you
     But oh the time it takes
     When you're all alone
     Someday you'll find someone
     That you can call your own
     But till then ya better...

     Now you're clean
     And so discreet
     I won't say a word
     But most of all this song is true
     Case you haven't heard
     So c'mon and stop your cryin'
     'Cause we both know money burns
     Honey don't stop tryin;
     An you'll get what you deserve

     CHORUS
 

Think About You

     I say baby you been lookin' real good
     You know that I remember when we met
     It's funny how it never felt so good
     It's a feelin' that I know
     I know I'll never forget
     Ooh it was the best time I can remember
     Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever

     There wasn't much in this heart of mine
     There was a little left and babe you found it
     It's funny how I never felt so high
     It's a feelin' that I know
     I know I'll never forget
     Ooh it was the best time I can remember
     Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever

     I think about you
     Honey all the time my heart says yes
     I think about you
     Deep inside I love you best
     I think about you
     You know you're the one I want
     I think about you
     Darlin' you're the only one
     I think about you

     I think about you
     You know that I do
     I think about you all alone
     Only of you
     I think about you
     Ooh it's true
     I think about you
     Yes I do

     Somethin' changed in this heart of mine
     You know that I'm so glad that ya showed me
     Funny now you're my best friend
     An' I wanna stay together to the very end
     Ooh it was the best time I can remember
     Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever

     I think about you
     Honey all the time my heart says yes
     I think about you
     Deep inside I love you best
     I think about you
     You know you're the one I want
     I think about you
     Darlin' you're the only one
     I think about you
 

Sweet Child O' Mine

     She's got a smile that it seems to me
     Reminds me of childhood memories
     Where everything
     Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
     Now and then when I see her face
     She takes me away to that special place
     And if I stared too long
     I'd probably break down and cry

     Sweet child o' mine
     Sweet love of mine

     She's got eyes of the bluest skies
     As if they thought of rain
     I hate to look into those eyes
     And see an ounce of pain
     Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
     Where as a child I'd hide
     And pray for the thunder
     And the rain
     To quietly pass me by

     Sweet child o' mine
     Sweet love of mine
 
     Where do we go
     Where do we go now
     Where do we go
 
     Where do we go
     Oh, where do we go now
     Where do we go
     Oh, where do we go now
     Oh, where do we go now
     Oh, where do we go
     Oh, where do we go now
     Where do we go
     Oh, where do we go now
     Where do we go
     Oh, where do we go now
     No, no, no, no, no, no, no
     Sweet child
     Sweet child o' mine
 

You're Crazy

     I been lookin' for a trace
     Lookin' for a heart
     Lookin' for a lover in a world that's much too dark
     You don't want my love
     You want satisfaction, oh yeah
     You don't need my love
     You gotta find yourself another
     Piece of the action, yeah

     Said where you goin'
     What you gonna do
     I been lookin' everywhere
     I been lookin' for you

     You don't want my love
     You want satisfaction
     I got your satisfaction
     You don't need my love
     You gotta find yourself another
     Piece of the action
     'Cause you're crazy
     You're fuckin' crazy
     Ya know you're crazy
     I said you're crazy

     Say boy where ya comin' from
     Where'd ya get that point of view
     When I was younger
     Said I knew someone like you
     And they said
     You don't want my love
     You want satisfaction, yeah
     You don't need my love
     You gotta find yourself another
     Piece of the action
     'Cause you're crazy
     You're fuckin' crazy
     Ya know you're crazy
     I said you're crazy
     Ooh you're crazy
     You know you're crazy
     Well you're crazy
     You know you're crazy, ooh

     You know you are
     Bring it down
     You're fuckin' crazy
 

Anything Goes

     I been thinkin' 'bout
     Thinkin' 'bout sex
     Always hungry for somethin'
     That I haven't had yet
     Maybe baby you got somethin' to lose
     Well I got somethin', I got somethin' for you

     My way-your way
     Anything goes tonight
     My way-your way
     Anything goes

     Panties 'round your knees
     With your ass in debris
     Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze
     Tied up, tied down, up against the wall
     Be my rubbermade baby
     An' we can do it all

     My way-your way
     Anything goes tonight
 

Rocket Queen

     If I say I don't need anyone
     I can say these things to you 'cause
     I can turn on anyone
     Just like I've turned on you
     I've got a tongue like a razor
     A sweet switchblade knife
     And I can do you favors
     But then you'll do whatever I like

     CHORUS:

     Here I am
     And you're a Rocket Queen
     I might be a little young
     But Honey I ain't naive
     Here I am
     And you're a Rocket Queen oh yeah
     I might be too much
     But honey you're a bit obscene

     I've seen everything imaginable
     Pass before these eyes
     I've had everything that's tangible
     Honey you'd be suprised
     I'm a sexual innuendo
     In this burned out paradise
     If you turn me on to anything
     You better turn me on tonight

     CHORUS (x 2)

     I see you standin'
     Standin' on your own
     It's such a lonely place for you
     For you to be
     If you need a shoulder
     Or if you need a friend
     I'll be here standing
     Until the bitter end
     No one needs the sorrow
     No one needs the pain
     I hate to see you
     Walking out there
     Out in the rain
     So don't chastise me
     Or think I, I mean you harm
     Of those that take you
     Leave you strung out
     Much too far
     Baby - yeah

     Don't ever leave me
     Say you'll always be there
     All I ever wanted
     Was for you
     To know that I care
