Lyrics


1. WEEPING WIDOW

Weeping widow, don't you cry
Dressed in black, I don't know why
All the time that you've been waiting
You should feel like celebrating

He'll make you free as a bird in the sky
Free as a bird in the sky
Look out stranger, here comes danger
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy
You better take care, you know you've got to beware
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy, weeping widow

Weeping widow, spend your leisure
In your castle full of pleasure
When his spirit comes to haunt you
In your chamber, he will taunt you

He'll make you free as a bird in the sky
Free as a bird in the sky
Look out stranger, here comes danger
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy
You better take care, you know you've got to beware
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy, weeping widow

Weeping widow, don't you cry
Dressed in black, I don't know why
All the time that you've been waiting
You should feel like celebrating

Weeping widow, you gotta run
Weeping widow, you better see what's in store
Weeping widow, you better run




2. JUST LIKE THAT

Alive and jivin', bareback ridin', anything to tease you
We rant and rave, the world to save, anything to please you
Now all night long we roll along, we ain't in bed till seven
I know damn well we're goin' to hell, can't pay the price in heaven

Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that

They say we're no class, man are they crass, smiles upon their faces
We're glad to be this way you see, we have no need for crazes

Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
We're rock 'n' roll children tonight
We're gonna rattle everything in sight
Look out ma, the hooligans are rolling tonight

We've been gone a long long time, and I only want to see you
I'm headin' home and all alone, you know how much I need you

Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
We're rock 'n' roll children tonight
We're gonna rattle everything in sight
Look out ma, the hooligans are rolling tonight
We're rock 'n' roll children tonight
We're gonna rattle everything in sight
Look out ma, the hooligans are rolling tonight
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that
Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, just like that




3. ELECTRIC JEWELS

Ah, ah, ah, ah
You've been had by a fool, he's been all over you
And you've been seen in a dream, well I guess it's true
Now what you gonna do (ooh), and what you gonna say (hey)
The captain's heard the news (news), that someone has to pay (hey)
That someone has to pay

We've been down for awhile, and still we can't agree
Don't be mad, don't be sad, change is all we need
I'm beggin' you, if you please, it means so much to me
I'll beg you, if you please, it means so much to me
Now it's time to choose, no one has to lose
When it could be right, now maybe
There's some hope in sight, ooh, I hope I'm right

Electric jewels, in hands of fools, then throw it all at me
Here's my life, here's my dreams, now won't you set me free
I'm beggin' with you, please, it means so much to me
I'm beggin' with you, please, it means so much to me
Now it's time to choose, no one has to lose
When it could be right, now maybe
There's some hope in sight, ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh

Speaking in a dream, of a land he's never seen
And he says it's true, says he'd love to be with you
So listen while you can, and I'll tell you of a man
Who would sell the world, though it seems absurd, it's true
I'd do it for you




4. YOU OPENED UP MY EYES

I wake up early morning, I lay down with the sun
You make me feel my life has just begun
Tell me 'bout tomorrow, and I'll tell you where I stand
You hold a touch of magic in your hand
You made me feel, we were here, we were real
You opened up my eyes

A feeling, oh so warm now, burnin' in my heart
Keepin' me and chasin' out the dark
A long long road behind me, and a longer road ahead
Remembering the things we've done and said
You gave to me, everything that I could see
You opened up my eyes
You opened up, you opened up my eyes, ooh

Tell me 'bout tomorrow, and I'll tell you where I stand
You hold a touch of magic in your hand
You made me feel, we were here, we were real
You opened up my eyes
You opened up, you opened up my eyes
Yyou opened up my eyes

All my life, all my life, all my life
Now I can say that I've seen the day (all my)
That it's worked out alright (life)
I feel so good that I don't think that (all my)
I'm gonna live through the night (life)
Now I can say that I've seen the day (all my)
That it's worked out alright (life)
I feel so good that I don't think that (all my)
I'm gonna live through the night (life)




5. COME ON ALONG

And when he came, he knew the game, nobody even there at all
And when he spoke, nobody woke, nobody even cared at all
I don't wanna lie to you, don't wanna bring you down
Don't wanna cry with you, just wanna turn you round and round and round, round

Come on along, come on along
Open up your hearts to find your love is tonight
Come on along, come on along
Tell you everything is gonna be alright, everything'll be alright
He said that he'll please you, and he don't mean to tease you
It's enough to confuse you, it's alright, alright
They thought you were ready, and the band was too heavy
That you were too small now, well alright, alright
And notice his grace man, he soars like a spaceman
He'll see you next lifetime, it's alright, alright
Out all night, alright, out all night, alright, out all night

His eyes were bright, his thoughts were tight, his heart was open to them all
But they just laughed, as in the past, they hadn't learned a thing at all
I don't wanna lie to you, don't wanna bring you down
Don't wanna cry with you, just wanna turn you round and round and round, round

Come on along, come on along
Open up your hearts to find your love is' tonight
Come on along, come on along
Tell you everything is gonna be alright, everything'll be alright
He says that he'll please you, and he don't mean to tease you
It's enough to confuse you, it's alright, alright
You thought you were ready, and the band was too heavy
That you were too small now, well alright, alright
And notice his grace man, he soars like a spaceman
He'll see you next lifetime, well it's alright, alright
Out all night, alright, out all night, alright, out all night, alright, out all night




6. LADY RUN, LADY HIDE

Lovely lady, silent lady
Will tomorrow be the last day in your life
I can't free you, only plea for you
On the last days of your life

Lady run, lady hide
Lady run, lady hide

Lonely lady, lovely lady
Do you know, do you know you've lost the fight
Cause we'll use you, and abuse you
On the last days of your life
Our tomorrow is now today
And our last chance to find a way
You'd think we'd learn, you'd think we'd try
When tomorrow we all could die

Lady run, lady hide
Lady run, lady hide
Lady run, lady hide
Lady run, lady hide, lady hide




7. I CAN HEAR YOU CALLIN’

Night time is the time you choose
Flight time with nothing to lose
A lifetime of pain and abuse
I've got to wake up, Lord I got to wake up
I see your eyes grow holes, I feel your heart grow cold
Please let me turn away, I can't face another day

I can hear you callin' me, like you did before
I was talkin' like a man insane, but I'd scream for more
I can feel you pleasing me, I can't take any more
I can feel you're sent this time to drag me down

And later on, will you want my soul
I'm so afraid that I'll lose control
I'll settle down, I just need some rest
Come on sugar, now do your best
My time has come at last, all my bridges are burning fast
Time has come for me to choose, little to win, but plenty to lose
I believed in you, you see, now with only you and me

Who was right, and who was wrong
I was lost and you were all alone
I see your eyes grow holes, I feel your heart grow cold
Please let me turn away, I can't face another day

I can hear you callin' me, like you did before
I was talkin' like a man insane, but I'd scream for more
I can feel you pleasing me, I can't take any more
I can feel you're sent this time to drag me down
I can hear you callin' me, like you did before
I was talkin' like a man insane, but I'd scream for more
I can feel you pleasing me, I can't take any more




8. CAT’S CLAW

She huh, living in a cat's claw mind
Hoping you like what you find
But you'd better take it real slow
So many things you don't know
Sweeter than the sweet that comes to the brain
Just upon the threshold of pain
That's the hold you have over me
Woman won't you please set me free

You took me places higher than I ever wanted to go
You took me places higher than any man should ever hope to go

Strange love, torn between the heart and the soul
Laughing while the body grows cold
Somewhere that I should never be
Woman won't you please let me be
Free me, from the darkness here underground
Screaming but I can't hear a sound
Drowning in the pleasures of pain
I can't see the sky, for the rain

You took me places higher than I ever wanted to go
You took me places higher than any man should ever hope to go, oh no

Reaching for the sun to come and take me home
Sitting in a chair and sinking like a stone

Sweeter than the sweet that comes to the brain
Just upon the threshold of pain
That's the hold you have over me
Woman won't you please set me free

You took me places higher than I ever wanted to go
You took me places higher than any man should ever hope to go, oh no




9. THE BAND HAS JUST BEGUN

Come talk to the band, and we'll tell you our plan
We've got alot to say
That we've worked for awhile, to develop a style
On tunes for you to play
We'll sing you a tune, we'll scream and we'll croon
Some rock 'n' roll for you
And we'll give you a rush, with a look and a touch
We'll rock the whole night through
So we never have to worry, and we'll never have to run
Our chance to have a party's just begun, oh yeah, oh boy
The band has just begun

You can sing, you can dance, we can all take a chance

The band has just begun, oh yeah, oh boy
The band has just begun, oh yeah, oh boy
