Lyrics

1. It's Not The Music

The wild wind blows across the sea,
Songs of time, through the centuries.
A song is born with each new babe,
The words of the old for the young to trade.
A story's told from thought to theme,
With great intent, to create the scene.
A message for all, or a song for two,
It's not what's written, just what it says to you.
It's not the music, it's how you play it.
It's not the words, it's how you say it.
It's not the music, it's how you play it.
It's not the words, it's how you say it.
The other night I laid down to sleep,
And dreamt of love, romantic fantasy.
But when I woke I began to weep,
Realizing it was not reality.
A song is old, but forever it will live,
In the minds of those who take what it can give.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,
It's not the music, it's how you play it.
It's not the words, it's how you say it.
It's not the music, it's how you play it.
It's not the words, it's how you say it.
It's not the music, it's how you play it.
It's not the words, it's how you say it.

2. Stage Fright

Well I get a little frightened, and I get a little mean.
But the way that I see it, it's just part of the scene.
So I get a little shaky, and I get a little high.
It's just part of my life, so don't ask me why.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Well how can I control it? How can I survive?
Got to try and hold it, got to keep it alive.
Well for ages and ages, man has felt the same:
"If you can't pay the price, then you can't play the game".
Well, I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Well I get a little frightened, and I get a little mean.
 But the way that I see it, it's just part of the scene.
So I get a little shaky, and I get a little high.
It's just part of my life, so don't ask me why.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Stage fright.
Stage fright.
Stage fright.

3. Satin Peacock

You can never be exactly what I want,
Your reason for livin' is to please & taunt.
No way of tellin' what you're gonna become,
Just lay back and chew your tacky bubblegum.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my hair.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my...
There you sit with your glitter, kit not knowin' what to do,
You don't even realize, we're playin' you for the fool.
There was a time when this kinky scene, would be oh so grand,
But things have changed and we're amazed, don't you understand?
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my hair.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my...
Seems you're havin' second thoughts about what has seemed so sure.
Relax your back and face the fact, let me stroke your fur.
It's too late to go runnin' back, to your mother,
You see my love we're stuck with each other.
And baby that's a fact.
 Kiss me,
But don't mess up my hair.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my hair.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my hair.
Kiss me,
But don't mess up my...
"Guitar"
Kiss me, if you miss me,
But don't you mess up my hair, oh yeah.
Kiss me, if you miss me,
But don't you mess up my hair.
Don't you mess up, don't you mess up,
Now don't you mess up my hair, oh yeah...

4. Rock And Roll Man

Singin' to the ladies, tryin' to make 'em smile.
Telling me they love me, but only for awhile.
I Hear their screams of passion, or are they screams of pain,
Of hearts that I have broken, love's money spent in vain.
I'm a rock & roll man, I give what I can.
But I'm leavin' in the morning, so I'll hope you'll understand.
I live and breath my music, my food is your applause.
Your hungry eyes seduce me, your hands turn into claws.
I look into your lonely eyes, reach out to touch your hands.
That's all that I can offer you, my life is with the band.
So you can see,
I got to be free.
I have to be a loner,
'Cause my life is not my own, no, no.
I'm a rock & roll man, I give what I can.
But I'm leavin' in the morning, so I'll hope you'll understand.
I'm a rock & roll man, rock & roll man,
I give, I give what I can.
But I'm leavin' in the morning, leaving in the morning.
So I'll hope you'll understand.
Yeah...

5. Deadly Dancer

The machine gun two step, the .38 caliber rag,
The blackjack fox-trot, are my favorite bag.
Razor wits and late night hits, are my claim to fame.
I'm the deadly dancer, Legs Diamond is my name.
Legs Diamond,
Deadly dancer.
Legs Diamond,
Midnight prancer.
It'll take a month of Sundays, before they can catch this cat.
Life could end for them, at the drop of my hat.
Life's just another ballroom, I dance it hot and fast.
A midnight waltz with me, just might be your last.
Legs Diamond,
Deadly dancer.
Legs Diamond,
Midnight prancer.
Legs Diamond,
Deadly dancer.
Legs Diamond,
Midnight prancer.
Legs Diamond,
Deadly dancer.
Legs Diamond,
Midnight prancer.

6. Rat Race

Lyin', cryin', it's all a game,
But we can't decide who's to blame.
No pride, no passion, no social grace,
We're all rats in this endless race.
Striving, thriving, a lifetimes work,
You end up a soda jerk.
Hard times dumped into your lap,
A nice crisp, facial slap.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
Crust of bread, and piece of cheese,
This race is run upon your knees.
A wife who keeps you on your toes,
A ruthless boss who browns your nose.
Chance of winning is so remote,
Stick your fingers on down your throat.
Life's a wheel and you're a spoke,
Bitter dreams on which you choke.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
Lyin', cryin', it's all a game,
But we can't decide who's to blame.
No pride, no passion, no social grace,
We're all rats in this endless race.
Striving, thriving, a lifetime's work,
You end up a soda jerk.
Hard times dumped into your lap,
A nice crisp, facial slap.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.

7. Can't Find Love

I went to see her, I thought she'd be there.
Spent so many a mistreated days, to find out she didn't care.
I've been searchin' for the answer, to a question in my mind.
When I look you in the eye, I don't know what I'll find.
I've been, searchin', for the answer.
I've been searchin' for the answer.
Can not find the love.
Many things have been said, behind our backs.
But when I heard you talkin', it stopped me dead in my tracks.
It seemed you were tired, of what we had shared.
Spent so many mistreated days, to find you never ever cared.
I've been, searchin', for the answer.
I been searchin',
I've been searchin',
Can not find the love.
Searchin'...
No, I can not find the love.
Searchin'...
No, I can not find the love.
I've been, searchin', for the answer.
I've been, searchin', for the answer.
Can not find the love.
I've been, searchin', for the answer.
I've been, searchin',
Can not find the love.
