1. OOWATANITE

Baby let's move cause you know that the light here
Really hurts my eyes
I come from a world where the light is dim
And the people not so jive
So fine, you know it's gonna be
So come on, come on, come on, come one baby
Come on if you want it to be

Oowatanite, everything'll be alright
Come on, come on, love me tonight
And I'll be yours till the sun comes up

Ooh baby, you know the time is right
We are the light of two foreign ships, passing in the night
So fine, you know it's gonna be
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Come on if you want it to be

Oowatanite, everything will be alright
Come on, come on, love me tonight
And I'll be yours till the sun comes up, again

Oowatanite, everything'll be alright
Come on, come on, love me tonight
And I'll be yours till the sun comes up

Ooh baby, don't hang me on the line
Life don't wait if you hesitate, come on quit wasting time
I know, you wonder if it's right
I just need a straight-shootin' woman to get me through the night
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Come on if you want it to be

Oowatanite, everything'll be alright
Come on, come on, love me tonight
And I'll be yours till the sun comes up, again




2. DON’T PUSH ME AROUND

Well you can call me a punk, I like to scrap when I'm drunk
And I'm just likely to cause a scene
I got an old Cadillac, I like to sit in the back
And flog the dog between the covers of Sex-teen

Hey man, I said now don't push me around
Hey man, I'm eighteen and I've been around

I'm gonna buy me some wine, I'm gonna have a good time
And don't you tell me what I shouldn't do
Cause you just don't understand, I'm not a boy, I'm a man
But you don't wanna hear from nothin', now do you

Hey man, I said now don't push me around
Hey man, I'm eighteen and I've been around

Well you can tell me I'm right, and you can tell me I'm wrong
But I don't really care what you say
I'm gonna drive into town with the top rolled down
And find me someone who's been feelin' the same way
Been pushed around, I've been taken by clowns
They're makin' millions just for fun, what a bad break
And who's to know if the show was a show
With his picture on the cover of Newsweek

Now hey man, I said don't push me around
Hey man, I'm eighteen and I've been around
Hey man, I said now don't push me around
Hey man, I'm eighteen and I've been around




3. CUM HEAR THE BAND

Billy's called, he's got the van
And Ian's got a set of drums
And I borrowed this old guitar
We're hoping some day we'll all go far
And maybe we'll write a tune
And drive in a limousine
See our picture in a magazine
So won't you be there

Cum hear the band on friday night, oh yeah
Cum hear the band it'll be alright, oh yeah
And baby it's you that's got me burnin' inside
So cum hear the band it'll be alright, it'll be alright

Cause baby it's you, that keeps me so turned on
Baby it's you, seein' me right when I'm wrong
And I can't keep it inside, cause I won't know till I've tried
So baby, whatcha want me to do

We practiced hard to get it on
Working to get it strong
Now I just want you to hear
But it won't work if you're not there
So please don't take too long
I'm waiting with a song
So won't you please be there
Won't you be there

Cum hear the band on friday night, oh yeah
Cum hear the band it'll be alright, oh yeah
And baby it's you that's got me burnin' inside
So cum hear the band it'll be alright, it'll be alright
It'll be alright, it'll be alright




4. SLOW POKE

I got somethin' to keep you satisfied
So won't you excuse me, while I slip inside
I ain't gonna rush things, you know I ain't no speed freak
And I like to take my time whenever I eat

Cause I'm just a slow poke, uh-huh, with long strokes
I said I'm just a slow poke, baby
And I like to take my time, poke on

I'd like to see you with the lights turned down
And I'd like to see you when you go down
I'm gonna be there, right by your side
I'm just gonna hang on, and let you take me for a ride

So how 'bout a slow poke, uh-huh, with long strokes
I said how 'bout a slow poke, baby
I like to take my time, alright

I'd like to poke you right here on the floor
I ain't gonna stop none, till I hear you call for more
Then I'm gonna tease you till you're ready to scream
Then I'm gonna please you, it's gonna seem like a dream

So how 'bout a slow poke, uh-huh, with long strokes
I said how 'bout a slow poke, baby
I like to take my time, poke on




5. VICTIM FOR YOU LOVE

So many times I've loved you
And now I don't even know you
I'm just a victim for your love
And having my whole world fall down
And finding the strength to go on
Cause I'm just a victim for your love
And I'm not the one you're thinkin' of
I'm just a victim for your love

I thought our love was growin' strong
Growing each day, well I was wrong
Then having my whole world fall down
And finding the strength to go on
Cause I'm just a victim for your love
And I'm not the one you're thinkin' of
I'm just a victim for your love
And I'm not the one you're thinkin' of, no

I'm just a man with a broken heart, oh no
I'm just a man with no place to start, oh yeah
I was a victim for your love

Don't break my heart, don't cause me pain
Comfort me love, hold back the rain, oh no
I'm just a man with a broken heart, oh no
I'm just a man with no place to start, oh yeah
I was a victim for your love, ooh
And I'm not the one you're thinkin' of
I'm just a victim for your love
And I'm not the one you're thinkin' of
I'm just a victim for your love




6. BABY DONE GOT SOME SOUL

Baby done got some soul, she's a fighter
Breakin' my spine, but takin' the time, to hit slowly
To rock my bones, till I got no feelin'
Lord above, livin' on love, do I know what I'm doin'

Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
Get on, get on, get on, get on baby

Baby done got some style, she's a hazer
Blacken my eyes, tellin' me lies, gonna believe her
Don't put the world into motion
Shakin' my tree, pushin' on me, just tryin' to please her

Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
And you'll be there, god planted soul for two, me and you

Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
Get on, get on, get on, get on baby
And you'll be there, god planted soul for two, me and you




7. I WOULDN’T WANT TO LOSE YOUR LOVE

Easy now, don't let our love go wrong
I'd never hurt you, or mean you any harm
Darling can't you see

I wouldn't want to lose your love
I wouldn't want to lose your love
I couldn't stand the pain
You know it'd drive me insane
Darling I need your love

And if tomorrow would be easier for you
And there's nothing that I can say or I can do
Well darling, please come home, you know

I wouldn't want to lose your love
I wouldn't want to lose your love
I couldn't stand the pain
You know it'd drive me insane
Darling I need your love

You're tellin' me that I've been foolish this time
You're tellin' me that I don't know my own mind
But darling can't you see

I wouldn't want to lose your love
I wouldn't want to lose your love
I couldn't stand the pain
You know it'd drive me insane
Darling I need your love (love love love love.......)
Darling I need your love (love love love love.......)
Don't wanna lose your love (love love love love.......)




8. HIGHWAY HARD RUN

Highway hard run, sure runs, sure hard
Highway hard run, sure runs, sure hard

Just got into Montreal
We're looking for relief, but that ain't all (oh yeah)
The riot squad's on full alert
Esp. for the one that wears a skirt (oh yeah)

Woman I need someone, can't be just anyone
I need someone who knows the way

Walked into this smoke-filled bar
The band's a joke, yeah the singer's gone too far (ooh yeah)
But the waiter said she'd soon be here
Now should I go or have another beer (oh yeah)

Just let me hold you tight, everything feels so nice
Let me just whisper in your ear (kiss my gut)

Highway hard run, sure runs, sure hard
Highway hard run, sure runs, sure hard

Woman I need someone, can't be just anyone
I need someone who knows the way
Just let me hold you tight, everything feels so nice
Let me just whisper in your ear




9. NOT FOR YOU, NOT FOR YOU ROCK ’N’ ROLL

Hey lady, come on baby
What's your reason for the things you do
You want somethin', but don't need nothin'
Tell me baby, whatcha tryin' to do

Cause I got me someone, that's right
She keeps me warm when it's cold at night
She gives me love and learns to stand in with the things you do, oh yeah
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll, alright

Act funny, some day honey
It's gonna get you in another jam
It's crazy, you're too much baby
Just who the hell you think I am

Cause I got me someone, that's right
She keeps me warm when it's cold at night
She gives me love and learns to stand in with the things you do, oh yeah
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
Not for rock 'n' roll, not for rock 'n' roll

You know I'd never tease her, oh yeah
I'll always try to please her, oh yeah
You know, she gives me love and learns to stand in with the things you do, oh yeah
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
And I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
I said I need her, never leave her
Not for you, not for rock 'n' roll
Not for rock 'n' roll, not for rock 'n' roll
Not for rock 'n' roll, not for rock 'n' roll, not for rock 'n' roll




10. WOULDN’T WANT YOUR LOVE (ANY OTHER WAY)

Lying in the sunshine, I feel like gettin' high
And taking a sip of cool wine, reflection in your eyes
A face I know as someone, who smiles and make me say

That I wouldn't want your love any other way

You're makin' my days feel empty
You're makin' my nights feel full
I wonder where I'm goin', it all depends on you
You give me all I am, now what can I give to you

Cause I wouldn't want your love any other way
You know I wouldn't want your love
How could I live without your love
You know I wouldn't want your love any other way

Lying in the moonlight, I feel like comin' down
Sometimes I feel so lonely, seems like I go around
And I can't hear you breathing, I see within the sounds

Cause I wouldn't want your love
How could I live without your love
You know I wouldn't want your love any other way
You know I wouldn't want your love
How could I live without your love
You know I wouldn't want your love any other way
Any other way, any other way




11. TONIGHT IS A WONDERFUL TIME TO FALL IN LOVE

Red and yellow, seasons changin' gear, oh yeah
Giving her all I am, and reaching out for lovin' care
And you know she can feel it, oh yeah, you know she doesn't have to try
