1. INTRODUCTION

(Instrumental)




2. MAMA, IT’S TRUE

Hey man, it's all rock 'n' roll
I like the feel, and it's good for my soul
Then you're tellin' me you're burnin' inside
And then you took me for a ride

I don't wanna tell you again
You're runnin' round, and I know where you've been
I'm tellin' you, I'm not satisfied
When you tease me with your lies
I say mama you know it's true
And I'm so in love with you
Come around, callin' me down
Say mama you know it's true

Hey baby, it's all rock 'n' roll
I like the feel, and it's good for my soul
I'm tellin' you, I'm doin' what I can
I'm tellin' you that I'm your man
I said mama you know it's true
And I'm so in love with you
You come around, callin' me down
I say mama you know it's true

You're tellin' me you're gonna be by my side
Now I see that you won't cause you lied
Hey babe, you know it's a shame
I'm gettin' tired of all your games
I say mama you know it's true
And I'm so in love with you
You come around, callin' me down
Say mama you know it's true




3. DRUTHERS

If I had my druthers mama, you know I'd rather be alone
I say if I had my druthers mama, I said I'd rather be alone
And when I wake up in the morning, you know I'd rather you were gone
It's alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun
It's alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun

I say if I had my druthers mama, I said I'd rather be alone
I say if I had my druthers mama, you know I'd rather be alone
And when I wake up in the morning, you know I'd rather you were gone
It's alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun
It's alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun
It's alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun
Alright mama, just tryin' to have some fun




4. 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




5. I’M ON FIRE FOR YOU BABY

This empty space I've held so long
You come around, and now I'm warm
I thought that I was havin' fun
And now I see the way it's done
I thought we'd led a life before
And who we were, well I'm not sure
But one thing I know is right
I loved you then, I'm gonna love you tonight

I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night

So don't take your time, it's gettin' late
We might lose if we hesitate
Cause bein' free is lots of fun
For me, though I'm just 21
I got things to do, and things to see
Might even have to leave you be
But till that time, let's give our all
And don't look back, until you fall

I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night

It'd be a shame, if our games, were doin' us
With all the time spent on tryin', then to lose your lovin'

So come on girl, we'll raise the sky
We'll break on through, we'll get so high
And don't worry about tomorrow's world
The time is now, I need you girl

I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night
I'm on fire for you baby, fire for you woman, all night




6. 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
Come on, lets have some fun
Try if you will, to remember the thrill
That the band has just begun
And now you'll never have to worry, you'll never have to run
The chance to have a party's just begun, oh yeah, oh boy
The band has just begun, oh yeah

Come talk to the band, and we'll tell you our plan
We've got alot to say
And we've worked for awhile, to develop a style
On tunes for you to play
And now we'll 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, oh yeah, oh boy
The band has just begun, oh yeah, oh boy
The band has just begun

8. YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A LADY

Could have been alright, could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
I could have been alright, I could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady

They all need you, to make love to
When you awake, you find them on the bed, lyin' beside you
They all love you, you're a good girl
And I ain't surprised, when you realize, just where you're goin' to

You could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady

If I told you, where you're goin' to
You'd laugh in my face, say I'm out of place, mind your business
And they all want you, to make love to
It's ashame, the fate of the game, the way it delights you

You could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
Na, na na na na, na, na, na na na na, na
Na, na na na na, na, na na
Na, na na na na, na, na, na na na na, na
Na, na na na na, na, na na
Alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
