Rising power
(Young - Young)

Dog day, it's Tuesday 
Hope that girl she'll come today
Hard life, it's a city life
Sweat keeps pourin' down
I got my feet up, like to love 
Through the dawn till I've blown
All I want's her lovin' now
I love the way she move around

Need no excuse 
To let it all hang loose
My body's for abuse

CHORUS:
Rising power, we'll raise the night
Rising power
Rising power, we'll wake the dead
Rising power

(You got it)

Love life, up all night
Darkest hour at the dead of night
Seen her walkin' down the street
The kind of woman that brings on heat
Love her dusk till dawn 
Come the morning, she was gone
Took me all to my surprise
Money gone, left high and dry

Need no excuse 
To let it all hang loose
My body's for abuse

CHORUS
(Gonna end up torn to shreds)
                   
Don't need no excuse 
My body's for abuse

CHORUS
            
Rise, rise
I'm gonna rise
Rising power
The power rise from you

This house is on fire
(Young - Young)

Fantasy world (?)

Fantasy world, hitting one of dream
A little tongue in cheek, (ha, personality?)
She bring on the flames, and it's burning and burning
My body's aching, tossing and turning

CHORUS:
House is on fire
House is on fire
This house is on fire
And the flame is gonna burn you down

She got me running for shelter
Needin' quarantine
She got me red hot and wired
Call an emergency
She bring on the flames, and it's burning and burning
My body's aching, tossing and turning

CHORUS

You got me burning and burning
You got me tossing and turning

Flick of the switch
(Young - Young)

Well there's a love gone down on mine
Suicidal voltage line
She sends signals outta distress
She devil, she evil
She got you reelin' on a rockin' machine

CHORUS:
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch she'll blow you sky high
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch she can satisfy

She gonna blow you all sky high
Flash the eye, electrify
A power force you should feel
She devil, she evil
She got you screaming on a lightnin' machine

CHORUS
(Give you pain, blow your brain)

She gonna put the light out on - you

Nervous shakedown
(Young - Young)

"Freeze", said the man cruisin' the beat
"You get your hands up and spread your feet"
"Don't you move an inch", I heard him say
"Or you'll be doin' time until the judgement day"
And he said, "Don't tell me no lies, give me alibis
'Cause if you cross my path, you'll be doin' life"
It's a dirty lie

CHORUS:
It's a shakedown
And it's a nervous shakedown
A nervous shakedown
Another nervous shakedown
It's a shakedown
And it's a nervous shakedown
We got a shakedown
Another nervous shakedown

(It's more like a set-up)

"Take a dime", said the man, "you can make one call
You got a one-way ticket to the County Hall"
Well, the judge looked high and I looked low
And when he smiled at me it was a one-man show
He said, "Two to five, the jury decides
Double parole if you survive"
It's a dirty lie

CHORUS

Law is gonna get you this time
And throw away the key

CHORUS

It's a shakedown on - you

Landslide
(Young - Young)

I want you to hear me a little
This is for all you bad boys
This is a story of the satanic rock 'n' roll
I want you to put your hands in your pocket
Take ten dollars out and send it to me, ha ha

???? (a main man?)
Listen to me baby, ain't gonna say it again

When Momma done school her son
????
Daddy don't take a no, no, no
Sends him to a (bullet affair?)
This boy is lost
It's a living nightmare
It ain't fair

CHORUS:
That boy he don't know how to lose
He's out to win
He got the lot to call the last shot
Shaker, he's a breaker, he's a maker
He's a landslide, landslide 
Walking, talking, rocking landslide

Now Momma he ain't no toy
And never ever gets his share
(Daddy expecting to ???? his son?)
???? room for air
This boy is lost
It's a rocking double dare
He's out to stare

CHORUS

(Preacher) done say his prayer
Take him to the promised land
Momma ????
Never gonna ????
This boy is lost
???? far off course
But he's the boss
              
CHORUS

That man's a one man landslide
That boy's a walk talk rocking landslide

Guns for hire
(Young - Young)

The word is out
That I'm about
And I've come gunning for you
I'm a real entertainer
A mischief maker
A lover of no fixed abode
Quick draw on the floor
No law give you more
Sweet talking lover of sin
You want to get
You get what you want
Look out woman -

CHORUS:
I got guns for hire
Shoot you with desire
The guns for hire
Shoot you with desire

I'm a wanted poster
A needed man
Running wild across the land
I'm a smooth operator
A big dictator
Gonna mark you with my brand

CHORUS

(Quick draw on the floor, big shot)

Hot to trot, big shot
Take a lot
Never get the drop on me
I'm a real entertainer
Mischief maker
Lover in seven languages

CHORUS

What you get, big shot
You can't get the drop on me, girl

Deep in the hole
(Young - Young)

I've been enchained
She got shackles on me
That woman to blame
For the hell and misery
Can't find my way outta here 
Shoot me down in a burnin' fear
Goin' down for a stretch of years
Way down below

CHORUS:
I'm deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
Deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
I'm down in, down in, down in the hole
Well I'm deep in, deep in
That woman got me deep in the hole

I'm sinking down
She got me down on the floor
Can't touch both walls
The further down I go
Pulls the strings on my violin bow
Makes me sing when she fire my load
Ain't no slave, but you do what you're told
You sold your soul

CHORUS

Bedlam in Belgium
(Young - Young)

The blood in my veins
Was running right through my brain
There was a cop with a gun
Who was running around insane
Three fifty arrests
No bullet proof vests
Now ain't that a shame
We wanted to play
Play for the crowd
"No", said the wankers
"You're on your way out"

Bedlam in Belgium

The place was a jumpin'
And the booze was going down
There's a cop doing time
Who's been working overtime
We don't play just for pay
So we left the stage
Stay just the same
He gave me a crack
In the back with his gun
That ain't so bad
But to feel the blood run

Bedlam in Belgium 
It was bedlam in Belgium
Bedlam in Belgium
Can't have a good time
unless you don't run
Bedlam in Belgium 
Who's to blame, it's a shame

Bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam
You gonna run out

Stage was saged
Cops enraged
Crying for more
It was a world war war

It was bedlam in Belgium
Can't have a good time
unless you don't run
Bedlam in Belgium
And the law got the drop on me

Badlands
(Young - Young)

I am a pistol pocket man with a gun in my hand
Looking for a woman that will understand
You like to roll and I like to ride
I'll stop at nothing, never take me alive

CHORUS:
I'm a man with a fast hand
Loving on a last stand
Outlaw, quick draw
Evil talking bandit man
In the badlands

I got a .45 that'll make you fry
Burn your saucy ass up like the Fourth of July
I ride it hard, I ride it high
Make love to you till you reach for the sky

CHORUS

I'm gonna set up my six pack
Ain't gonna back track
I shoot loaded
Come on girl, gonna give you a thrill

In the badlands

Brain shake
(Young - Young)

Alright, hold tight
I really want to ball tonight
On my fender, no space defender
I enjoy it on the floor, I get it tight
Toe to toe with the blood below  
Fee Fia Foo smell the blood of rock 'n' roll
All night drive on the rockin' suicide
My feet are jumping, she's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide

And it's a brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
All I can take
Brain shake, brain shake, brain shake

She's a mean lean rocking machine
A hip hugging blue jean dream
She's a one horse town (?) with a sweet sweet kiss
Her hips are right around me
And it's toe to toe with the blood below 
Fee Fia Foo smell the blood of rock 'n' roll
All night drive on the rockin' suicide
My feet are jumping, she's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide

And it's a brain shake, brain shake, brain shake 
Ready to shake
Brain shake, brain shake, brain shake 

It's a brain shake brain shake brain shake 
For mercy sake
Brain shake, brain shake, brain shake

She's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide
