1. IT'S MY LIFE

It's a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways to make certain to pay
Though I'm dressed in these rags
I'll wear sable someday
Hear what I say, I'm gonna ride the surface
No more time spent sweatin' rent
Hear my command, I'm breakin' loose
It ain't no use holdin' me down, so stick around

But baby baby, remember remember
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
(It's my life and I'll do what I want)
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But someday your cheats all will find

There'll be women and their fortunes
Who just want to mother orphans
But you're gonna cry when I'm squeezing you dry
Takin' all I can get
No regrets when I open their eyes
And I look for their money
Believe me honey, that's funny
Can you believe I ain't no saint, no complaint
So girl come on out, there ain't no doubt

It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want




2. UNDERCOVER

Running through gate number nine
She just can't miss that flight
Her gun is packed and loaded
As she slips into the night
Rome, London, New York, L.A.
She's all around the world
One more secret lover
Just another undercover girl
Undercover undercover undercover
Undercover undercover undercover
She's strange but that's alright
But then again I don't know
Posing as a cover girl
While she dances through the night
Sees through life, waits alone
Amid the sultry skies, she's got the magic touch
Undercover undercover undercover
When I'm undercover with you
Undercover undercover undercover
When I'm undercover with you
Her world is calling out for heroes
Behind the mask of double zeroes
Undercover undercover undercover
When I'm undercover with you
Undercover undercover undercover
When I'm undercover with you
No one sees the things that we do
Undercover
When I'm undercover with you
Undercover




3. THAT AIN'T NOTHING

Your smile's synthetic as your money
I'll sign a paper check for you
Like one more joint can save her
She's thick enough to be tattooed by you
Keeps all the wrong hearts tied and branded
You cage me up inside your zoo
But I'll never be domesticated
This ten foot tiger's out to get you
'Cos I know you're sayin' somethin'
But that ain't nothin' at all
It ain't nothin', nothin' at all
When you speak those words
You're sayin' somethin'
But that ain't nothin' at all
That ain't nothin', nothin' at all
Nothin'
Stop feelin' that it's sophistication honey
That high seduction leads me on, leads me on
When you call my prayers shatter
Just another brother, one more John
That's all I am to you
And you must be sayin' something
But it ain't nothin' at all
It ain't nothin', nothin' at all, no way
You must be feelin' somethin'
But it ain't nothin' at all
It ain't nothin' at all, nothin' at all
Nothin'
It I could see for a thousand miles
Through your perfect mask
I'd have enough of lovers
To last
It ain't nothin' at all, nothin' at all Nothin'




4. NO IMAGINATION

You stood roadside
Long legs heels far too high
Looking like some perfect star
Who's the one this act is for?
You might scare young boys to death
With your backstreet cabaret
But I read you so long ago
The book's been out to play

'Cos you got no imagination
Though you look like a real fine breaker
No imagination
A straight ride no Kama Sutra

No bills name cards
Fast love soft touch got it fast

'Cos you think you've hit a hardline hook
You don't get no second looks
When you think you're boxin' clever
You don't never knock 'em out
I see you no more no
What you're tryin' 'em out
'Cos you got no imagination
Though you look like a real fine breaker
No imagination
A straight ride on Kama Sutra

No imagination
Sterilized and medicated
No imagination

You stood roadside
Long legs and those heels
They scare young boys to death
With your backstreet cabaret
But I read you so long ago
The book's been out to play

You got no imagination
Sterilized and medicated
No imagination
Open wide and get it finished
No imagination
Though you look like a real fine breaker
No imagination
Straight ride no Kama Sutra
No imagination
Sterilized and medicated
No imagination




5. OHAYO TOKYO

Jet from America
Touched down in Tokyo
Taxi me to your rice wine
Sons of the samurai
Wait at the terminal
Aim their cameras and fire
Ohayo Tokyo ohayo

Take one more photograph
Invade my privacy
But me one more Sapporo
I am a troubadour
Stripped of my dignity
Raped and nailed to the wall
Ohayo Tokyo Ohayo Tokyo ohayo

I sleep beneath that eastern moon
I want to hear your rising sun
Sons of the samurai
Wait in the terminal
Aim their cameras to fire
Ohayo Tokyo ohayo Tokyo
Ohayo Tokyo ohayo Tokyo
Ohayo Tokyo ohayo Tokyo




6. DANGEROUS GAMES

She was a queen with a power of soul
And the eyes could stand the angel's face
She walked down the may road
Into a young man's heart
Once inside she was chained to the wall
Of love's star court

She was playin' dangerous, dangerous games
Dangerous, dangerous games

Bought a ticket to the next world
Got so high she fell through the sky
An angel took her on his back
They flaw so hard his wings they cracked
Lost in a lonely field of lovers
She had a knife undercovers
Now she wants her one and only
She o0king too long
And the love that was lonely

Dangerous, d-d-d-dangerous
Dangerous games, that's how they play
They were playin' dangerous, d-d-d-dangerous
Dangerous games, you're messin' around with me
Dangerous, d-d-d-dangerous
Dangerous games, can't get away
She's playin' dangerous, d-d-d-dangerous
Dangerous games

She fell to a lung lost planet
And her lights went out
The eye of the master of darkness said

Dangerous, d-d-d-dangerous, dangerous games
She was playin' dangerous, d-d·d-dangerous
Dangerous games




7. BLUE BOAR

Riding down the spine that is
The backbone of the island
Welcomes back this English man
You've been a stranger too long
I am riding on motorway one
Four o'clock in the morning
I know that my day's never done
So I know where I'm goin'

Tell me how it went the night before
Tell me leather angels
Was it the heaven you've been lookin' for?

This is the Blue Boar restaurant
The rock and roll oasis
We are all too famous here
Please don't look at our faces
When we sit with our sunglasses on
Four o'clock in the morning
I can't give you my autograph son
Sorry I must be going

Tell me how it was the night before
The night before
Tell me leather angels
Was it the heaven you're been lookin' for?
Tell me how it went the night before
The night before
Tell me leather angels
What was the heaven you've been lookin' for?




8. ONLY ONE WOMAN

Ten little indians stand in a row
I mean there are many
So how would I know

*She was only one women
Only one woman
And l've got a picture
Of the woman I love

Who sees my lonely face?
Who sees my shame?
Nobody in the place
Can tell me her name

She was only one women
Only one woman
And l've got a picture
Of the woman I love

Ten little indians now there are none
I mean there are many
And life still goes on

She was only one women
Only one woman
And l've got a picture
Of the woman I love
She was only one women
Only one woman
And l've got a picture
Of the woman I love

Oh oh oh I want to love you, love you, love you
I wanna hold you tight
She's that woman, I love her so
Don't let it say, don't let her know
I've been lovin' you,been lovin' you
Just a little too long
I love her, l love, Good knows I love her
Oh please




9. THE WITCHWOOD

Underneath the winter moon
There is a fire burning
Waitin' for the prince to come
They stand alone
Love could burning them warm out in the cold
This love why do they wait, we'll never know
Idle black and mystic night
After the moon's dying
Dancing in a wheel of fire
Until the sunrise
Sweet virginal child
Naked and cold
This love cuts like a knife
That takes his blood
Ride his heart, child of the night
Take his hand, to be born, this devil's love
Sweet virgin this child
Standing alone
This sweet wine drink as it bleeds
Right out the cut
Ride his star, child of the night
Take his hand, to be done, this devil's blood
Ride this star, child of the night
Take his hand, to be born, this devil's hand




10. DOUBLE MAN

Sitting down in my chair tuning in with the TV
Nothing new just the news
And it doesn't concern me
So I went to the mirror
And I looked on a stranger, watching me
I felt he knew me so well
He's standing in the corner
A man in black
A dark reflection in the glass

Double man, a double man

Here am I chancin' icy-cold knives
With a shadow
Speakin' words like an echo to my alter-ego
A spirit migrated
And the soul duplicated
This is the dark side of me
Oh he's waiting in the corner
A man in black
The dark reflection in the glass

Double man, double man, he's the double man
(I am caught in your mirror)
Double man
(I am caught in your mirror)

There can be no escaping that double man
He takes my life and takes my hand, look out!

Double man, double man
(I am caught in your mirror)
He's the double man, he's comin' for me
(I am caught in your mirror)




11. NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING STAR

This is the night of shooting star
One thing your life does it ......
This night is forever, this night is forever
This is forever, this sight is mine
Ah-, ah-
