1.Motorcycle Man

If you see me flashing by
Do not stop me, do not try
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
I get my kicks just when I can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man

I can beat your street machine
We're taking risks, that's what we mean
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
We get our kicks just when we can
When we can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle...

If you see me riding by
Do not stop me, do not try
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
I get my kicks just when I can
When I can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man
Motorcycle, motorcycle
Motorcycle man

I can beat your street machine
I'm taking risks, that's what I mean
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
We get our kicks just when we can
When we can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man
Motorcycle, motorcycle
Motorcycle man





2.747 (Strangers in the Night)

We got a 747 coming down in the night There's a 747 goin' into the night
There's no power, there's no runway lights There's no power they don't know why
Radio operator try to get a message through They've no fuel they gotta land soon
Tell the flight deck New York has no lights They can't land by the light of the moon
There's no power, what do we do They're overshooting there's no guiding lights
A 747 coming down in the night Set a course into the night
Try to get a message through Scandinavian 101
For Gods sake get your ground lights on
We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights We were strangers in the night
Strangers in the night Lost on separate flights
Going nowhere Strangers in the night
We were strangers in the night Going nowhere
Both on separate flights We were strangers in the night
Strangers in the night Lost on separate flights
Going nowhere Strangers in the night
Going nowhere
This is Scandinavian 101
Flight from Hawaii coming out of the sun Strangers in the night
Kennedy, you should be in sight We were strangers in the night
We can't see a thing here in the night Strangers in the night
Navigator says we're on the flight path We were strangers in the night
There's no radio, no sign of life Strangers in the night
This is Scandinavian 101 Both on separate flights
For Gods sake get the ground lights on Strangers in the night
Going nowhere
'Cause we were strangers in the night We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights Flight 101
Strangers in the night Strangers in the night going nowhere
Going nowhere
We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights
Strangers in the night
Going nowhere





3.Princess of the Night

She used to be an ironhorse
Twenty years ago
Used to bring the mail to me
Through the ice and snow
I've sat alone and watched her
Steaming through the night
Ninety tons of thunder
Lighting up the sky

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

Speeding, sparks like lightning
Engine working hard
Furnace on the foot plate
Shining in the night
Iron striking metal
The sound of racing steel
It's all I ever wanna hear
It's music to my ears

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky

Ninety tons of thunder
Lighting up the sky
Steaming red hot pistons
See the wheels flash by
Hear the whistle blowing
Streaking down the track
If I ever had my way
I'd bring the princess back one day

She was a princess of the night
I saw the writing on the wall
She was a princess of the night
I take a ride across the sky
(sky, sky, sky)





4.Strong Arm of the Law

I was listening to the music on the radio (*)
I had a feeling that something's not right
The music was loud, we could still hear the crowd
From the gig that we played that night

We pulled into a motorway restaurant
Stopped awhile, fooled around
But I still had a feeling that something's not right
'Cause we're standing in a whole in the ground

Stop, get out (**)
We are the strong arm of the law
Stop, get out
We are the strong arm of the law

Into the night came a blue flashing light
A blast from the siren to make sure
But it came to a stop behind the motorway cop
Who'd been tailing us for more than an hour

He pulled us out of the car on the side of the road
He questioned us one at a time
Where is the gear that we know that you use
We said the only speed we use is on cars

[Repeat **]

You should've seen the stupid smirk drop from his face
It was a negative exercise
The way that we dress and the things that we do
They thought it was an easy bust
[Repeat *]
[Repeat **]





5.Heavy Metal Thunder

Kick ass!

If you're taking a flight
At the speed of light
You're shaking your heads to the band
If you're there on your horse
But you're not on the force
We're taking this place to the ground

In the heat of the night
When you're fists are alight
Forged on anvils of steel
If your body's on fire
About to expire
We go to the threshold of pain

[Chorus]:
Pull your head back
Hold your hands high
Shake your body
If it's too loud
And you're burning hot
fill your heads
With heavy metal thunder
Heavy metal thunder

On the wings of an eagle
You're hoping to fly
Holding your hands to the sky
In a blue sea of denim
Checkin' the band
With your banners and scarves held on high

If you think something more
You'll come down to the front
Don't sit there and do as they say
We're an army of thousands
Surrounded by light
Tearing this place to the ground





6.20,000 Ft.

If there's one thing I love
It's flying high above
Breaking through the barrier of sound
It's just like making love
When you're up above
Riding in my bird of silver steel

Forget the time (*)
Ten miles high
Living my fantasies
At twenty thousand feet
Twenty thousand feet, twenty thousand feet

It's the rushing of my blood
That makes me feel so good
I can see the world below just shooting by
Twice the speed of sound
That's how I like to ride
My chariot of steel across the sky

[Repeat *]

If it's faster than light
Sharper than steel
I'll race across the ceiling of the world
Just like a gun
Aiming at the sun
Riding in my bird of silver steel

[Repeat *]

I'm floating in space
The world seems to disappear
Then I awake
Got to get my head back in place
Twenty thousand feet, twenty thousand feet
Twenty thousand feet, twenty thousand feet





7.Wheels of Steel

Oww

When my foots on the throttle there's no looking back
I leave the motor tickin' over when she's back on the track
I've got a 68 Chevy with pipes on the side
You know she's my idea of beauty, that's what I drive

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Talking 'bout my wheels of steel

I don't take no jibe from the motorway pigs
When I'm crusin' down the freeway I don't get no lifts
If you see me coming get out of my way
You know a Trans Am didn't, I blew it away

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my my wheels of steel

I'm burnin' aviation fuel my foot's to the floor
Ya know she's crusin one-forty she'd do even more
I'm burnin' solid rubber I don't take no bull
'Cause my wheels of steel are rolling
They're rolling your way

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Talking 'bout my wheels of steel

Look out, uh

I'm burnin' aviation fuel my foot's to the floor
Ya know she's crusin' one- forty she'd do even more
I'm burnin' solid rubber I don't take no bull (shit)
'Cause my wheels of steel are rolling
If you're comin' come quick

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel

Talking 'bout my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my wheels of steel

Uh, ya, wheels of steel
[Repeat to end]





8.Never Surrender

I was born on the back streets
On the rotten side of town
I never had me nothin'
Just people puttin' me down
Living on the dark side
Across the railroad track
Leaving wasn't easy
But I'm never going back

Never surrender
When you're up against the world
Never surrender
Stand up fight them all
Never surrender
When you're up against the world
Never surrender
Stand up fight them all

I'm sticking in the fast lane
I never wanna quit
I'm taking all my chances
I'm gonna take 'em quick
I started at the bottom
But I'm headed to the top
Ain't nobody gonna hold me back
'Cause I'm never gonna stop

Never surrender
When you're up against the world
Never surrender
Stand up fight them all

Never surrender
When you're up against the world
Never surrender
Stand up fight them all

I was born on the back streets
On the rotten side of town
I never had me nothin'
Just people puttin' me down
I'm living on the darkside
Across the railroad track
Leaving wasn't easy
But I'm never going back

Never surrender
When you're up against the world
Never surrender
Stand up fight them all

[Repeat to end]




9.Fire in the Sky

There's a fire in the sky
There's a feeling in the air
When the ground starts to tremble
The first attack is here
You won't stand a chance
When the missiles start to fly
They never tell the people
Till the holocaust is here

When the fire's in the sky
You'll be running for your lives
When the fire's in the sky
Prepare yourselves to die

Where, where are the shelters
They said they would be there
You'll need, need some protection
From the radiation flare
Don't, don't start a panic
It won't do you no good
You'll just have to wait
For the end of all mankind

If you're near the point of impact
There's nowhere you can run
If the heatwave don't get you
The shockwave surely will
There won't be no more heroes
There's no one left to fight
It's the end of our planet
We'd commit eternal sight

When the fire's in the sky
You'll be running for your lives
When the fire's in the sky
Prepare yourselves to die

When the fire's in the sky
You'll be running for your lives
When the fire's in the sky
Prepare yourselves to die
To die, to die, to die ...





10.Machine Gun

Move in to the front underhanded fire
Hear the bullets flying millions every hour
Tracers in the night shooting across the sky
For God's sake cover me I don't wanna die

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Over the top into the wire
Running like a madman into the fire
No-mans land, fighting for your life
Fighting hand to hand forced to use your knife

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Come the wheels of terror crushing all before
Chews you to the bone to hear the monsters roar
With the clash of iron the battles never won
For the forgotten soldier it's only just begun

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
It's gonna shoot you down

Move in to the front underhanded fire
Hear the bullets flying millions every hour
Tracers in the night shooting across the sky
For God's sake cover me I don't wanna die

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Come the wheels of terror crushing all before
Chews you to the bone to hear the monsters roar
With the clash of iron the battles never won
For the forgotten soldier it's only just begun

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Gonna shoot you down
