HANDS OF MISERY
(words by Rodger Larson, music by Tony Smith)

MISERY IS THE HEARTBREAK QUEEN, BAD LUCK PERSONIFIED

OH LORD WON'T YOU KEEP ME OUT OF THE HANDS OF MISERY

OH PLEASE WON'T YOU KEEP ME OUT OF...
THE HANDS OF MISERY

JUST ONE THING SHE WANTS FROM ME, WANTS TO SEE ME ON MY BEGGIN' KNEES
BEHIND HER EYES HER EVIL PLAN IS TO GET HER HOOKS INTO ME MAN
THEN CAME THE FATEFUL DAY SHE SET HER SIGHTS ON ME
OH LORD WON'T YOU KEEP ME OUT OF THE HANDS OF MISERY

OH PLEASE WON'T YOU KEEP ME OUT OF...
THE HANDS OF MISERY

SOMEBODY HELP ME, HIDE ME AWAY
SOMEBODY HELP ME, HIDE ME TODAY
SOMEBODY HELP ME, HELP ME PLEASE

DEN OF THIEVES
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Zombies on the street
Tyrants on patrol
Rounding up the sheep
Taxation your soul

Pay up to (the) Den of Thieves

Submit to their rule
Like some kind of fool
They work you like a slave
Locked down every day

Pay up to (the) Den of Thieves

(solo)

State TV tells you lies every day
Only a fool would believe
They are the masters and we are the slaves
In bondage to a Den of Thieves

You will serve and comply
And believe every lie
Because the serf is controlled
So do as your told

Submit to (the) Den of Thieves
Submit to (the) Den of Thieves
That's not the way it should be!

SCREAMIN' EAGLE
(words and music by Tony Smith)

WELL THEY POINT THEIR CAMERA AT ME EVERYWHERE I GO
THEY'RE LISTENING IN ON ME IN THE NAME OF THE LAW
THEY'RE BANGIN' ON MY DOOR AGAIN SAYING TURN THE MUSIC DOWN
WE GOT A WARRANT HERE TO TAKE YOU IN, GET UP AGAINST THE WALL

WE WERE HANGIN' AROUND AT THE PLACE UP TOWN
WE WERE THROWIN' 'EM DOWN LIKE THE SHERIFF WILL NEVER COME AROUND

THERE IS A PLACE I KNOW IN IOWA WHERE THE TALL CORN GROWS
I KEEP A RUNNIN' AWAY FROM THE LAW BUT I AINT DONE NOTHIN' WRONG

LIKE A SCREAMIN' EAGLE FLYIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY
I'M ON MY WAY TO FREEDOM EVERY DAY

THE GOVERNMENT ISSUED A SUBPOENA TO ME TO APPEAR IN COURT
I GET A CHANCE TO CLEAR MY NAME IF THE VERDICT'S IN MY FAVOR
THEY WILL TRY TO CONVICT ME AND THROW MY ASS IN JAIL
BUT I GOT A BETTER IDEA I'M GONNA JUMP MY BAIL

WE WERE HANGIN' AROUND AT THE PLACE UP TOWN
WE WERE THROWIN' 'EM DOWN LIKE THE SHERIFF WILL NEVER COME AROUND

THERE IS A PLACE I KNOW IN TENNESSEE CALLED MURFREESBORO
I KEEP A RUNNIN' AWAY FROM THE LAW BUT I AINT DONE NOTHIN' WRONG

LIKE A SCREAMIN' EAGLE FLYIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY
I'M ON MY WAY TO FREEDOM EVERY DAY
LIKE A SCREAMIN' EAGLE FLYIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY
I'M ON MY WAY TO FREEDOM EVERY DAY

(SOLO)

THERE IS A PLACE I KNOW TALKIN' ABOUT CHICAGO
I'M GOIN' HOME WHERE I BELONG CAUSE I AINT DONE NOTHIN' WRONG

LIKE A SCREAMIN' EAGLE FLYIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY
I'M ON MY WAY TO FREEDOM EVERY DAY
LIKE A SCREAMIN' EAGLE FLYIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY
I'M ON MY WAY TO FREEDOM EVERY DAY
 

 

HEARTS ON FIRE
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

Here comes the night
The world is turning
One look into your eyes
My love is burning
The lights are coming on
Showing us the way through the darkness

Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
Heart is burning

Late is the evening
Flames burning low
I whisper nothings
That you already know
The windows to your soul
Are wanting me as much I want you

Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
Heart is burning

Here comes the midnight
Height of the black
I watch the bead of sweat
As it rolls down your back
Twelve bells are tolling
As I reach out to touch your velvet skin

Hearts on fire

(solo)

Here comes the dawn
Light drawing nearer
With your sweetness in my arms
My choice is clearer
Your sleeping innocence
Morning breaks as I make up my mind

Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
Heart is burning


 

 

MONEY CRUNCH
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

I can feel the squeeze getting tighter every day
Can't even get home on my take home pay
I Dread the sight as I open my letter box
Bills on top of bills all piled to the top

What's a poor man gonna do when he feels the Money Crunch?

I finally found a job but one won't be enough
'Cause spending is too easy and saving is so tough
I Hoped to stash some cash for that rainy day
But I'm just getting soaked 'cause the rain won't go away

What's a poor man gonna do when he feels the Money Crunch?
What's a poor man gonna do when he feels the Money Crunch?

 

Tried everything I could to stay afloat
But there's too many holes in the bottom of my boat
Its like I'm treading water now there's nothing left to spend
Help me catch my breath 'cause I'm going down again

(Solo)

Unplug the 'fridgerator, ain't no food left to keep cold
'Cause everything I own been broke or stole or sold
Been hiding' from the landlord 'cause the rent was due last week
Now he's pounding on the door (looks-like-I'm) back out on the street

What's a poor man gonna do when he feels the Money Crunch?
What's a poor man gonna do when he feels the Money Crunch?

 

 

TRAVEL ON BLUES
(words and music by Tony Smith)

DARK CLOUDS PASSING OVER HEAD
RAINING DOWN LIKE A STORM OF DREAD
DEVIL
'S ARMY TRYIN' TO SHOOT ME DOWN
TIME FOR ME TO GET OUTTA THIS TOWN
chorus:
BEFORE THEY KNOW IT I
'LL BE LONG GONE
HEAR WHAT I SAY, I
'M GONNA TRAVEL ON
ENDLESS ROAD I CALL MY HOME
HEAR WHAT I SAY, I
'M GONNA TRAVEL ON!

(solo)

THUNDER POUNDS WITH THE DEVIL'S WRATH
DANGER AND MISERY CROSS MY PATH
WINDS TAKE ME WHERE I MUST GO
BLOW ME AWAY LIKE A TORNADO
chorus:
BEFORE THEY KNOW IT I
'LL BE LONG GONE
HEAR WHAT I SAY, I
'M GONNA TRAVEL ON
ENDLESS ROAD I CALL MY HOME
HEAR WHAT I SAY, I
'M GONNA TRAVEL ON!


 
 

HILLBILLY CHROME
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

If you see me driving in my car
There are some pieces didn
't make it this far
It
's held together with tape and wire
To keep the bumper away from my tire

I got a roll in a box in back
So I can compensate for what I lack
Got no money in these pockets of mine
But I can fix it with some tape and twine

Hillbilly Chrome       That'll hold it for a while
Hillbilly Chrome That
'll  make it last a few more miles
Hillbilly Chrome        I
'm a keepin' it on hand
Cause I
'm a very handy man

When it makes that scream
I been a Pullin
'   if you know what I mean
Tear off a big ol
strip,  Oh Yeah
I you don
't like it     don't cha me no lip

I fixed the freezer  and the garbage can
Taped up the legs     of my old box fan
When things are breaking      give the chrome a try
We can make it last        a little more time

Hillbilly Chrome       That'll hold it for a while
Hillbilly Chrome That
'll  make it last a few more miles
Hillbilly Chrome        I
'm a keepin' it on hand
Cause I
'm a very handy man 


 

ONLY POLITICIANS
(words and music by Rodger Larson and Brian Doherty)

The president was busted
He almost went to jail
He had to take a piss test
To prove he didn't inhale
I don't care, they're only politicians
Just tell me where does my money go?

The speaker of the house
Was embarrassed to be caught
He and a hundred people
Dancing naked on his yacht
I don't care, they're only politicians
Just tell me where does my money go?

Ambassador of Spain
Had a suitcase full of cocaine
But since he had immunity
They sent him on his way
I don't care, they're only politicians
Just tell me where does my money go?

 

BEAT THE BLUES
(music by Tony Smith, words by Tony Smith and Rodger Larson)

Before you can wink your eye
The years are gonna pass you by
I got a match to light your fuse
It's easy to beat the blues

Like the tempo of your feet
The drummer keeps the beat
Hear the band playin
' the song
Gonna rock you all night long
The best way to spend your time
Is when you leave the blues behind

The rhythm of your love
Is gonna make you rise above
The song within your soul
Is gonna teach you blues control
If you listen to your heart
You can hear the music start

Baby, baby, it's up to you
It's easy to beat the blues
Baby, baby, can't you see
Don't you know you drive me crazy

The vibe's gonna knock you out        
That
's what it's all about   
You really drive me wild
Can't get you out of my mind
I
'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I
'm gonna give my love to you

Baby, baby, it's up to you
It's easy to beat the blues
Baby, baby, can't you see
Don't you know you drive me crazy

 

DO NOTHING
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

You don't have to do nothing to get me so excited
You don
't have to do nothing at all
You don
't have to do nothing to make me feel invited
You don
't even have to beckon or call

I'm getting in the mood just by looking in your eyes
My heart is burning with passion
And if you choose to stay with me tonight
I
'll try to fulfill your deepest desire

You don't have to do nothing I'll be constantly returning
To the fire that I feel by your side
You don
't have to do nothing to get my love a' burning
You know nothing for you is denied

I'm getting in the mood just by looking in your eyes
My heart is burning with passion
And if you choose to stay with me tonight
I
'll try to fulfill your deepest desire

You don't have to do nothing
You don
't have to do anything
You don
't have to do nothing
You don
't have to do anything

SOLO

You don't have to do nothing to get me so excited
You don
't have to do nothing at all
You don
't have to do nothing to make me feel invited
You don
't even have to beckon or call

I'm getting in the mood just by looking in your eyes
My heart is burning with passion
And if you choose to stay with me tonight
I
'll try to fulfill your deepest desire

You don't have to do nothing
You don
't have to do anything
You don
't have to do nothing
You don
't have to do anything


 

ARIANA
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Ooooo Ariana
Lonely days go on by
How I long to hear you say that you'll be mine
You just don't realize

Ooooo Ariana
I come to see you all the time
But the expressions on your face you cannot hide
Is someone else on your mind?

He moves around
Like a thief in the night
It won't be long before you see through the lies
Then you'll know the reason why

Ooooo Ariana
The wrong will turn into right
When you tell me that you'll be mine
When you finally realize

That I'll be there
To hold you tight
So say goodbye to all those lonely nights
From now until the end of time

Ariana
Let the truth guide you
'Cause girl the truth is that I love you
No one loves you like I do

 

ON THE PROWL
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Well I'm on the prowl
I'm gonna hunt down my prey
Well I'm on the prowl
I'm gonna hunt down my prey
I'm gonna make you mine
Before the end of the day

I've been sneakin' 'round
Yes I've been watching you
Although you can't see me
I've been watching your every move
Well I'm gonna strike
When you least expect me to

I'm love with you
And I won't let you get away
I'm love with you
And I won't let you get away
I've been in love with you
Ever since my first birthday

I'm gonna feed my hunger for you
Yes I will
I've got a big appetite for you
That I need to fill
Well the time has come
I'm going in for the kill

 

PASSION IN MY HEART
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

Every look from your eyes penetrates my very soul
Every touch from your hand, I can
't help but lose control
Every kiss from your lips, and I feel that I could fly
But I fear deep inside that you soon will say goodbye

CHORUS:
Look at me
Feel the passion in my heart
Can
't you see
That it
's tearing me apart?

Every time you're away I'm afraid you won't return
All alone in the night, where the memories of you burn
Here I stand, half a man, and my tears they fall like rain
Stay with me, I believe, if you leave I
'll fade away

CHORUS

All the love that I feel seems to lead to only pain
My desire here for you, if I only could explain
Pick me up, let me down, never knowing where I stand
So confused, what to do, I may never understand

CHORUS
CHORUS

 

 BARRELHOUSER
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Just when you thought you'd seen it all
I showed you something you can't find at the mall
I got rock & roll, a barrelhouse of rhythm and blues
A rockin' and a rollin'

Don't call your doctor when you're feeling blue
'Cause I can tell you what is ailing you
When you feel lonely there's one thing left to do
A rockin' and a rollin'

Now I ain't gonna sell you nothing you can't use
And you're gonna find that every word is true
I got rock & roll, a barrelhouse of rhythm and blues
A rockin' and a rollin'
 


DOWN FROM HEAVEN
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

Last night an angel came down to me
I tell ya I was scared out of my skin
Thinking of the bad things that I have done
And waited for my punishment to begin
I said take me to your leader
I'll follow anywhere
And he said wait a minute baby
That's not why I'm here

I'm here to rock, I'm here to roll
We got no blues in heaven
But we got plenty of soul
Don't want no harp no no
And Gabriel's blowing on that thing again
So I'm down from Heaven to hear some rock and roll

I hear the devil, he's got a big rock band
Always crashing and a burning dancing to that devil jam
Got a dance floor made of fire
And some nasty backup singers
It just ain't fair they rock down there
While Heaven just can't compete
Don't want no harp no no
And Gabriel's blowing on that thing again
So I'm down from Heaven to hear some rock and roll

---piano solo---

Don't want no gospel no no
And Gabriel's blowing on that thing again
So I'm down from Heaven to hear some rock and roll

---guitar solo---

Don't want no gospel no no
And Gabriel's blowing on that thing again
So I'm down from Heaven to hear some rock and roll

I hear the devil, he's got a big rock band
Always stirring up some trouble down in devil land
His drums are made of skulls
While they scream and gnash their teeth
It just ain't fair they rock down there
While Heaven just can't compete
Don't want no gospel no no
And Gabriel's blowing on that thing again
So I'm down from Heaven to hear some rock
Down from Heaven to hear some rock
Down from Heaven to hear some rock and roll!


 
ELECTRIC LOVE
(words by Tony Smith, music by Tony Smith, Rodger Larson and Brian Doherty)

My baby's got her own kind of way
Of keeping me satisfied
She's got a certain kind of energy
But not the usual kind
Every time that I kiss her lips
She gives me an electrical shock
And every time that she hits the switch
She really turns me on

My baby's got electricity
Flowing through her blood
I feel the current every time we connect
She's got electric love

Illuminating eyes that shine so bright
Let me tell you 'bout the girl I love
Her smile lights up my darkest night
More than the stars above
And when she kisses me she electrifies
She really charges me up
The only way her love I can describe
It's like electric love

I never thought that it might be my fate
If I should die from electrocution
At least I'll have a smile on my face
She's got electric love
 

FEELIN' GOOD
(words and music by Tony Smith)

I've been searchin' my whole life for the answer to what love means
I
've searched the whole world over, but there's never been a girl for me
Empty days and lonely nights followed me all around
But since I found my baby nothing can get me down
I got a sweet little lovin
' angel, she loves me just like she should
Feelin
' good, yeah, feelin' good

She really knows how to love me, she makes me feel all right
She satisfies my every desire to my heart
's delight
Nobody else in this whole world can love me like she does
I guess that must be the reason I love that girl so much
It took forever to find her, you know I never really thought I would
Feelin
' good, oh yeah, feelin' good

(guitar solo)

(organ solo)

Just the other day it was really cold outside
She called me up on the telephone and said "stay with me tonight"
I drove to her apartment, my car was cold as ice
But when she opened the door, man, I was feelin
' fine
No doubt about it, yes it
's understood
I
'm feelin' good, yeah, I'm feelin' good, yeah, I'm feelin' good
Feelin
' good!

(guitar solo)

Ad lib:
Oh yeah, we
're gonna bring it on down,
we
're gonna bring it on down, now
Can you feel it, yeah
Feelin
' good
Feelin
' good, oh yeah
Feelin
' good

 

WHEN THE WOLF HOWLS
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Lose yourself in the city lights
Where the rent is cheap at a high price
You
're searching for a better life
Inside your heart and inside your mind
I think it
's time to move along
Let me tell you what
's goin' on

She's got the love
Makes me feel so fine
I'm gonna make her mine, yeah
I tell you no lies, I tell you no lies
Enough to keep a soul satisfied

Slow dancing to a fast life
It
's the same dream you have every night
Like when the wolf howls in the night
You reach out but she
's nowhere in sight
Good love is hard to find
I
've been searching my whole life

She's got the love
Makes me feel so fine
I'm gonna make her mine, yeah
I tell you no lies, I tell you no lies
Enough to keep a soul satisfied

(organ solo)

Take, take, take, take me away
Take, take, take, take, take me away
Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

She's got the love
Makes me feel so fine
Enough to keep a soul satisfied

Go ahead and roll the dice
If it makes you feel all right
Take a chance to break away
In a crowded city that
's a lonely place
I think it
's time to move along
Let me tell you what
's goin' on

She's got the love
Makes me feel so fine
I'm gonna make her mine, yeah
I tell you no lies, I tell you no lies
Enough to keep a soul satisfied
Enough to keep a soul satisfied
She
's got the love that satisfies


 

ANYWHERE ANY TIME
(words and music by Tony Smith)

Well I just got a call from some friends of mine
They were havin
' a jam and they said stop on by
I told them that would be just fine
Anywhere, any time

It don't matter if it's day or night
Those down-home blues are really outta sight
Anywhere, any time

Red-hot blues, ice-cold brew
That
's all I'll ever ask of you
Carnegie Hall or a country dive
It could be anywhere, any time

It don't matter if it's day or night
That twelve bar boogie is really outta sight
Anywhere, any time

(piano solo)

Anywhere
Any time
Anywhere
Any time

 

STORY OF MY LIFE
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

YOU'VE HAD ME GOING NOW FOR QUITE SOME TIME
YOU PERSONALITY
'S BEEN ON MY MIND
IT TOOK A WHILE GOT YOU TO SMILE
ASKED YOU OUT IN MY OFF-BEAT STYLE
YOU BROKE THE NEWS I HAVE THE BLUES
SAID THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT YOU HAD TO DO

Chorus:
OH NO!  THAT
'S THE STORY OF MY LIFE
OH NO!  THAT
'S THE STORY


I STUCK AROUND 'CAUSE I WANTED TO
WORTH THE EFFORT FOR A NIGHT WITH YOU
FIRST YOU SAY "YES" THEN YOU SAY "NO"
I WENT FROM FLYING TO A WHOLE NEW LOW
I
'M SUCH A FOOL THERE I GO AGAIN
LOOKS LIKE MY BAD LUCK WILL NEVER END

Chorus

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I WOULD GIVE UP EASY
BUT NOW YOU
'RE TALKING TO A NEW MAN
TOOK THE TIME AND I MADE SOME CHANGES
I WAS JUST HOPING YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND

Chorus

GOT TWO CHOICES AND I MUST CHOOSE ONE
TO BE PERSISTENT OR TO CUT AND RUN
A SHOT OF COURAGE, TWO SHOTS OF BEER
TIME FOR ACTION AND THE BUCK STOPS HERE
WHEN YOU DECIDE PLEASE LET ME KNOW
SHOULD I KEEP HANGING HERE OR SHOULD I GO?

Chorus

 

THE WOLF
(words and music by Rodger Larson)

I've got a problem let me explain, I got a fear of Wolfbane
and every time the moon is full I lose control
Now hold on a minute and I'll tell you why
You shouldn't let a silver bullet fly
Behind these yellow eyes - I'm still a man, Do you Understand?

I'm a man   I'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man  I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf

Sometimes I wake up in the strangest places
My ripped-up clothing earns the strangest faces
Put the detective through the strangest cases
Under my nails are the gruesome traces

I'm a man   I'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man  I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf

(solo)

Sometimes I wake up in the strangest places
My ripped-up clothing earns the strangest faces
Put the detective through the strangest cases
Under my nails are the gruesome traces

I've got a warning won't you listen to me?
If I start changing -  I advise you to flee
I feel it coming on - the change has begun
you better run you better run!

I'm a man   I'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man  I am the Wolf
I'm a man   I
'm a man   I'm a man   I am the Wolf

IN CONTROL
(words by Rodger Larson, music by Rodger Larson and Tony Smith)

Power comes by many means
Fueled by charm, finesse and dreams
The way to get subconscious hold
Is to Make 
'em think they're in control

Make 'em think they're in control
Make 
'em think they're in control
The way to get subconscious hold
Is to Make 
'em think they're in control

Such influence finds a way
To make a subject go astray
They cross a line they
'd never cross
While they still  feel   that   they
're  the   boss

A stroke of ego clouds the eyes
And covers up the shroud of lies
Request so minor, hardly seen
While they dance on puppet strings

Make 'em think they're in control
Make 
'em think they're in control
The way to get subconscious hold
Is to Make 
'em think they're in control

(Break and Solo)

So if you think you're in control
There may be things that you don
't know
And if they hang on every word
That
's just the cage and you're the bird.

Make 'em think they're in control
Make 
'em think they're in control
The way to get subconscious hold
Is to Make 
'em think they're in control


LONG LEGS COMING
(words and music by Jon Johnson)


I SAW HER LONG LEGS COMING
IN THE CORNER OF MY EYE SHE HAD ME HYPNOTIZED
IT'D BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
I'D SEEN HER STYLE BEFORE
SHE KNOCKED ME STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR

SHE WAS A FINE YOUG WOMAN
BUT SHE WAS LOOKING TO FIND A RED HOT NIGHT ON THE TOWN
I SAW HER LONG LEGS COMING
IN HER HEART AND HER EYES A LOOK OF DESPERATE DESIRE

CHORUS:
LIKE AN ANGEL WHO FELL STRAIGHT DOWN FROM HEAVEN
MY HEART BROKE YOUR FALL AND YOU LEFT ME IN TRACTION
LIKE THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS YOU WET MY APPETITE
I'VE TASTED YOUR LOVE AND I WANT ANOTHER BITE
I NEED YOUR LOVE AND I WANT YOU TONIGHT

WE SPENT A LOG HOT SUMMER
WE WERE GETTIN' TO KNOW EACH OTHER'S HIGHS AND LOWS
HER LEGS WERE LONG AND LOVELY
EACH NIGHT AND EVERY DAY SHE CHASED MY BLUES AWAY

IT WAS A LONG HOT SUMMER
HER LOVE KEPT ME COOL YET SHE WAS NOBODY'S FOOL
IT WAS A LONG TIME COMING
BEFORE I REALIZED SHE STOLE MY HEART NO SURPRISE

--CHORUS--

(SOLOS)

--CHORUS--

I SAW HER LONG LEGS COMING
ONE NIGHT SHE'S LEAVING A BAR ANOTHER MAN ON HER ARM
IT'D BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
SHE WAS THE TYPE THAT HYPNOTIZED YET COULD NEVER COMPROMISE

SHE WAS A FINE YOUNG WOMAN
BUT SHE WAS LOOKING TO FIND A RED HOT NIGHT ON THE TOWN
I SAW HER LONG LEGS COMING
EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I THINK OF HER WITH A SMILE

--CHORUS--


RED HOT PEPPER
(words and music by Jon Johnson)

I KNOW A HOT BLOODED WOMAN
NO ONE LIKE HER WILL YOU EVER MEET
SHE'S A REAL HIGH ROLLER
WITH YOUR HEART UP FOR STAKE SHE PLAYS FOR KEEPS
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR HER

I LOSE ALL SENSE OF REASON
WHENEVER I'M TOGETHER WITH THAT GIRL
SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY WITH HER TEASIN'
EVERY TIME MY BODY GETS TOO CLOSE TO HERS
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR THAT GIRL

CHORUS:
SHE KNOWS HOW TO GRAB HOLD
WITH HER LIPS SHE GENTLY BLOWS MY NAME
SHE EXHIBITS ALL OF THE MOVES
AS SHE MAKES AND BREAKS THE RULES OF THE GAME

CAUSE SHE'S A HOT BLOODED WOMAN
HER LOVIN' MAKES YOU HUNGRY FOR MORE
NO OTHER TASTE WILL QUENCH YOU
WHEN YOU HAVE A SMALL BITE OF HER LOVE
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR HER

CHORUS:
SHE KNOWS HOW TO GRAB HOLD
WITH HER LIPS SHE GENTLY BLOWS YOUR NAME
SHE EXHIBITS ALL OF THE MOVES
AS SHE MAKES AND BREAKS THE RULES OF THE GAME

(SOLO)


CHORUS 2:
SHE KNOWS HOW TO GRAB HOLD
---PIANO BREAK---
SHE EXHIBITS ALL OF THE MOVES
AS SHE MAKES AND BREAKS THE RULES OF THE GAME
MAKES AND BREAKS THE RULES OF THE GAME

I LOSE ALL CONTROL OF MY REASON
I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET OVER HER
SHE MAKES ME CRAZY WITH HER TEASIN'
ALL HER PLEASIN' MAKES ME SO IN LOVE WITH HER
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR HER
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR HER
JUST LIKE A RED HOT PEPPER
I'M ON FIRE WITH DESIRE FOR HER


 


DIGGIN' MY POTATOES
(words Traditional, music by Tony Smith)

I was walking out the back door, when your other fool was sneakin' in
I was walking out the back door, when your other fool was sneakin' in
Lord it hurt so bad baby, to hear him call your name

Someone's diggin' my potatoes, someone's trampin' on my vine
Someone's diggin' my potatoes, someone's trampin' on my vine
Well I had a worried feelin', it was a restin' on my mind

--solo--

Someone's diggin' my potatoes, aint but a low-down dirty swine
Someone's diggin' my potatoes, aint nothin' but a low-down dirty swine
Oh Lord I feel so bad baby, Lordy aint it a cryin' shame, cryin' shame
