Kick Out the Jams tracks

Lyrics

1. RAMBLIN' ROSE

Love is like a Ramblin´ Rose
The more you feed it
The more it grows,
Ramblin´Rose, Ramblin´Rose,
Come on home

Ramblin´ Rose,
Is such a ball
Diamond rings
And a Cadillac car,
Ramblin´ Rose, Ramblin´ Rose
Come on home

Ramblin´ Rose
Ramblin´ around,
Ramblin´ Rose
I´m gonna put you down
Ramblin´ Rose, Ramblin´ Rose
Come on home

Love is like a Ramblin´ Rose
The more you feed it,
The more it grows
Ramblin´ Rose, Ramblin´ Rose
Come on home

I need a Ramblin´ Rose
Ramblin´ Rose




2. KICK OUT THE JAMS

Kick out the jams motherfuckers !
Yeah! I, I, I, I, I'm gonna
I'm gonna kick 'em out ! Yeah !
Well i feel pretty good
And i guess that i could get crazy now baby
Cause we all got in tune
And when the dressing room got hazy now baby

I know how you want it child
Hot, quick and tight
The girls can't stand it
When you're doin'it right
Let me up on the stand
And let me kick out the jam
Yes, kick out the jams
I want to kick'em out !

Yes i'm starting to sweat
You know my shirt's all wet
What a feeling
In the sound that abounds
And resounds and rebounds off the ceiling

You gotta have it baby
You can't do without
When you get that feeling
You gotta sock'em out
Put that mike in my hand
And let me kick out the jam
Yes ! Kick out the jams
I want to kick'em out

So you got to give it up
You know you can't get enough Miss Mackenzie
Cause it gets in your brain
It drives you insane
With the frenzy

The wailin' guitars girl
The crash of the drums
Make you wanna keep-a-rockin'
Till the morning comes

Let me be who i am
And let me kick out the jam
Yes, kick out the jams
I done kicked em out !!!




3. COME TOGETHER

I am out, you are in, let us form a link
And move in rhythms
Slide apart and slide apart
Come together, yes, together in the darkness
Come with me

Let us dance the, let us dance the dance
The dance from which all dances come
Yes, together in the darkness, astounding, oh
Together mama, yes yes yes
Together momma, yes yes yes yes
Yes yes yes yes, yes yes

All the guiding rhythms lover
All the nerve that takes a lover
Nipples stiffen, nipples stiffen
Nipples stiffen, mama

Let me give tongue to it, yes
Let me give tongue to it, yes
Together in the darkness, come with me, oh
Yes yes yes, together momma
Yes yes yes, yes yes yes, yes yes, wow

Oh, God, it's getting closer
Oh and when it gets closer
Oh, God it's so close now
God it's so close, yes yes yes
Yes yes yes yes yes, yes yes yes, oh

All right, build to a rising
Build to a gathering, build to a quaking
Build to eruption, build to a peak
And fall gasping over
Together, yes, together in the darkness

Oww! Now, now, now
Oww! Oww! Oww! Yow




4. ROCKET REDUCER NO.62 (RAMA LAMA FA FA)

After some good tokes and a six pack
We can sock 'em out for you
Till you're flat on your back
You know i got to keep it up
Cause i'm a natural man
I'm a born hell raiser
And i don't give a damn
I'm the man for you baby

Workin' here before your momma soakin wet
You think you're satisfied

And i don't give a damn lead.
Rama lama fa fa fa.

You can lay it down on me, momma
Any old time

We'll both be stoned O-Mind

The cooles' what am
Robin Tyner's the name
And i kick out the jams

6. Motor City is burning

Ya know, the Motor City is burning babe,
There ain't a thing in the world that they can do.
Ya know, the Motor City is burning people,
There ain't a thing that white society can do.
Ma home town burning down to the ground,
Worser than Vietnam.
Let me tell you how it started now ...
It started on 12th & Clairmount that morning.
It made the pig cops all jump & shout,
Ah said, it started on 12th & Clairmount that morning,
It made the pigs in the street freak out.
The fire wagons kept comin', baby,
But the black Panther snipers wouldn't let them put it out, Wouldn't let them put it out, wouldn't let them put it out.
Guitar solo "get it on ... "
Well, there were fire bombs bursting all around, people, Ya Know there were soldiers standing everywhere.
I said there was fire bombs bursting all around me, baby, Ya Know there was National Guard everywhere.
Ah can hear my people screaming.
Sirens fill the air, fill the air, fill the air.
Your mama papa don't know what the trouble is . ..
You see, they don't know what it's all about.
Ah said, your mama papa don't know what the trouble is, Baby, they just can't see what it's all about.
Read the news, read the newspapers, baby?
You just get out there in the street and check it out!
Ah said, the Motor City is burning, people,
I ain't hanging round to fight it out.
Ah said, the Motor City is burning, people,
Just not hang around to fight it out.
Well, I'm taking my wife and my people and ???
Well, just before I go, baby, ???? ,
Firemans on the street, people all around,
Now, I guess it's true,
I'd just like to strike a match for freedom myself,
I may be a white boy, but I can be bad, too.
Yes, it's true now, yes, it's true now.




7. I WANT YOU RIGHT NOW

I said I, said I want you right now
Yes I, yes I want you right now
I can't stand it, alone on my own
I said I, said I want you right now
You know I, said I need you baby
Yes I do I said I, well I need you right now
Oh, I guess you need me too
Yes I do I said I, well I need you right now

8. STARSHIP

Starship, starship take me
Take me where I want to go
Out there among the planets
Let a billion suns cast my shadow

Starship, starship take me
Stretch our legs in time and space
Take a passage through the vacuum
Let me feel the stars burnin' on my face

Ten for the gravity, checkpoint
Nine for polarity, checkpoint
Eight for the
Seven for the prismatic time warp

Six for the spirit of the captain, captain
Five for the power of the nucleus nebula
Four for the eyes, ears, nose, think, feel, speak

Three for the many levels
Two for the chromosome
One for the energy
One for the energy

One check
One check
One check
One check
One check
One check

Leaving the solar system
Leaving the solar system
Leaving the solar system
Leaving the solar system

Leaving
Leaving
Leaving
Leaving

It's cold in sunfire glory
From this point I rise to infinity

There is a land whose beauty is almost
Unimaginable to the human mind
In a daze we stand there and look further
Than the ordinary eye can see

Children, far above the roof of this world
We can encompass vistas of the worlds
There is a land where the sun shines eternally
Eternally, eternally

Out there in outer space is a living
Blazing fire so vital and alive
That it burns our eyes to witness it's spendor
