Bad Attitude

You know what I feel - they say I gotta
A bad attitude - you wanna buy a picture of your sister in her birthday suit
No gratitude - street tough talkin' but you always get screwed

You face don't fit burn down the school
Only way to stay cool - gotta break some rules
Systems made you fools

No attitude - you get slow and you slide into decrepitude
It's all platitudes - this one way street ends in penal servitude
Get out on the street go on and break some rules

You know what I feel
You know what I feel
Rip it up - I gotta bad attitude
Tear it down - I gotta bad attitude

Bad attitude - you can't think straight when you're raised on junk food
No solitude - somebody help me gotta getta grip on my latitude
You're just a destitute - your folks don't like it when
they see you starrin' on the news

You know what I feel
You know what I feel
Rip it up - I gotta bad attitude
Tear it down - I gotta bad attitude

You're just destitute - some kinda prostitute
Sometimes I just wanna sit back and relax and get me some pulchritude
Lets get stewed get crude

Rip it up - I gotta bad attitude
Tear it down - I gotta bad attitude
Rip it up - I gotta bad attitude
Tear it down - I gotta bad attitude

So don't tell me what I gotta do
I'm sick of wise guys feeding me all these verisimilitudes
I ain't fool
You better watch out honey - I'm one pissed of dude
I gotta bad attitude


New Dark Ages

How do you do - whatdya say
Welcome to - a new dark age
Let's go straight to bed
Love's got outta hand
you must be outta your head

When you feel in the night
This can't happen to you
It's war that we fight
Yes we do
Yes we do

Welcome to - a new dark age
Welcome to - a new dark age

Only love can save us now

Love has become - a four letter word
It's past it's best - and seldom heard
Love's left on the shelf like- cigarettes
It's bad for you health

And you feel in the night
It's scary thing
You believe in in what's right
Take care - stop to think

Welcome to - a new dark age
Welcome to - a new dark age

Stop! + Take + Care + Think!
Is - this - real - love?

And you feel in the night
Can't this dream be true
It's war that we fight
Don't let it happen to you

Welcome to - a new dark age
Welcome to - a new dark age


Dirty Mind

Some people look for love and affection
That was never my scene
I'm looking for different perfection
I wanna girl that talks mean
Some people go for poets and flowers
Means nothing to me
She's gotta look good in shower
I'll stay there in hours and hours
I've been around the world

I wanna lover
I wanna lover
I wanna lover with dirty mind

Some people look for faith and devotion
They're bringin' me down
Why swim against the tide of emotion?
When you could be tied down
I'm gonna treat romance like a tumour
I'm cuttin' it out
I'm sick to death of heresay and rumour
I need a girl with some sense of humour
I've been around the world

I wanna lover
I wanna lover
I wanna lover with dirty mind

Every now and the it occurs to me
I'm caught up in the web of morality

Well I've been around the world
And nowhere colud I find
I don't care is she's a woman or a girl
I wanna lover with a dirty mind

I wanna lover
I wanna lover
I wanna lover with dirty mind


Baby It's Alright

I could be your lover
I could be your friend
It's one or the other
Or is that where it ends

'Cos I never see you
And you never call
I want to be near you
To hold you that's all
Be there if you fall

Baby it's alright
For the first time I could be strong
I need you near me tonight
Must be the right time
How could it be wrong?
How could it be wrong?

You gave me my heartache
You give me my blues
I'm here in your doorway
I got nothing to love
And cryin' nt be wrong?

And if you should decide honey
You need a love that's good
It ain't about pride
It ain't about manhood and baby it's alright


Ain't Put Nothing

You know you hide from yourself
You know you're turning away
Sometimes you've got to face the world
Take it day by day
Sometimes you've got to take a look around
Keep your ear to the ground

You ain't put nothin' down
You ain't put nothin' down
Gotta stop foolin' round
'Cos you ain't put nothin' down

You know you're running away
You've got to win on this race
Give it all that you've got
This human race needs a lot

'Cos you ain't put nothin' down
You ain't put nothin' down
You've got to turn yourself around
You ain't put nothin' down

So many questions - you ask yourself
Better find some answers - don't get
Left on the shelf
This is your - cry for help
Better help yourself

You ain't put nothin' down
You ain't put nothin' down
Better turn yourself around boy
You ain't put nothin' down

You ain't put nothin' down
You ain't put nothin' down
You had to turn yourself around boy
You were lost but now you're found


The Also Rans

Fucked - again
I was born on the twenty second floor of a bird cage
I was bound to rock - I was born to rage
When your daddy's gets drunk and your ma has no hope
And you're tough and you're young and you get enough rope
And you make a wrong turn and you ain't got no brakes
And the country's a wreck and the government's cruel
The you better check out - if you wanna be cool

It's hard road - in a world that stinks
God have mercy on a man that thinks
It's hard road - in a world that sucks
God Don't love you when you're out of luck

So I work real hard and earn my pay
And drink all night - it's the only way
To make some fun outta life - just a little bit more
and when I get up my nerve - I'm gonna rob me a store
Or even find me a girl - you never know your luck
And she'll cook and she'll clean - just to make few bucks
It's grand old world - going down the pan
And there ain't no cure - for an also ran

Yeah it's hard road - in a world that stinks
God have mercy on man that thinks
Yeah it's hard road - we're going down the pan
God have mercy on the also runs

You gotta have mercy on the also rans
if you wanna get out gotta be desperate Dan

You know what I mean
A hard road

It's a hard road - when you're on your own
It's a hard road - when your skin's the wrong tone
It's a hard road - if your face don't fit
It's a hard road - you gotta take alotta shit

'Cos God don't love you when you got no bucks
It's hard road
God don't love you when you're outta luck
God have mercy ...


Millionaire

Trash my guitar - got a lot to spare
Well I can do what I want - it just don't seem fair
Let your fingers do the walking
What you hear is - money talking

So love me now
Love me here
Love me good honey
I'm a millionaire

I got swimming pool
You know it keeps me cool
Got a car that's flash
I gotta rash from cash

Let your fingers do the walking
What you hear is - money talking

So love me now
Love me here
Love me good honey
I'm a millionaire

"I think I can safely say
I'm on my way to my first million"

"I say"

Hey I'm famous dude and I just exude
I gotta Cadillac - a bowling alley in the back
Weren't you thrilled to bits with my Greatest Hits
Ain't I a loveable guy

So love me now
Love me here
Love me good honey
I'm a millionaire

"I'm rich - I am stinking ruddy well rich!"

He's lovely geezer na na na na na
"I've no small change"
"Well you'd better go and get some hadn't you? old garcon"
He's got lots of money na na na na na
Have to stop now guys! You can't afford me anymore


Put It All Down To Love

Well Looky over here - coming down the street
It's long face Sally - the saddest girl to meet
She's got all the worlds problems - she carries all our sins
Oh but wait a minute Sally - you gotta mile otta
Put it all down to love
You better
Put it all down to love

Do my eyes deceive? - on the other side
Oh it's my pal Joey - the greatest man alive
He's clown he's a joker - he'll bring you down to your knees
Ah but wait a minute Joey - what are these tears I see?

He gotta reason to cry today
He had lover but she's gone away

Put it all down to love
You know you really gotta
Put it all down to love
Put it all down to love

Love's the reason for all things we do
Love's the reason I'm not over you
I'll be the golden bullet in your genetic gun
So look out baby here I come here I come!
She's got something to smile about
She found a lover and wants to shout

Put it all down to love
Put it all down to love
Put it all down to love


Hand Of Fools

Streets echo the last retreat
Dust falls to the ground
A mother cries help

While walking in paradise
Look around and you'll see
We're stripping it bare
Soon there'll be no place to turn

Who plays the hand of fools
With who's God given right
It's out of control
Don't it show

While profit oils the big machine
And we're short changed the facts
Where does it stop
The lifeblood is slipping away everyday

Who plays the hand of fools
With who's God given right
It's out of control
It's out of control

Who plays the hand of fools
In worn torn and savage place
It's out of control
And it chills to the bone


Life Changes

Here come the sharpshooters
And teenage looter's today
Gotta pistol in their pocket
Gonna blow all your dreams away

They rip through your life
Like a hurricane blowing
Time is the healer alone
And you know it

Here comes the dream weaver
You better believe her today

Life changes around
Don't ask me why I don't know
Love can always be found
Don't ask me why that's how it is

Here come the abusers
To tempt you and lead you astray
In this outlaw ghetto
Your soul is the price that you pay

But out of the darkness
There'll soon come a light
To take you and lead you
Through this endless night

She'll love you and hold you
To keep you from slipping away

Life changes around
Don't ask me why I don't know
Love can always be found
Don't ask me why that's how it is

And I believe in my love for you
How does t feel?
Would you feel?

Life changes around
Don't ask me how I know but
Love can always be found
Don't ask me why that's how it is
