Lyrics

1. Winds of Fortune

Winds of fortune, fill the sail
Push us hard, and never fail
Set a course to lands unknown
All directions leading farther from home

Chorus
All our lives we’re heading for
A remote and distant shore
Waiting for the day to come
When we stand with both feet on the ground

Sailing ships in dreadful gale, few survive to tell the tale
The sea is rough the weather damned
Point the way so that we may find land
I know I’m looking for someone
Maybe it’s you
I know I’m searching for something
Maybe it’s you

Chorus
All our lives we’re heading for
A remote and distant shore
Waiting for the day to come
When we stand with both feet on the ground

2. Between the Legs

Sitting low, my knees in the air
My hands on the grips, the wind in my hair
My leather jacket, lord my tight levi’s
My wrap around shades, my tombstone eyes
Perched atop my metal stallion
I’m gassed and greased, let my ride right through your canyon
I said ‘hey listen honey, I’m gonna give you a thrill’
No there ain’t nothin’ funny, gonna get your fill

Chorus
I’ve got mine
All the time
Between my legs
I’ve got mine
All the time
Between my legs

I said I don’t ever worry ‘bout getting’ me no dates
Don’t you know that I wanted in fifty two states
Flying down the highway like a bat out of hell
So come on pretty babe you know that I’ll never tell
Goosin the throttle on a blazin blast
I be startin’ to roll, I got salty breath
I said hey listen honey gonna give you a thrill
Lord there ain’t nothin’ funny, gonna get your fill

Chorus
I’ve got mine
All the time
Between my legs
I’ve got mine
All the time
Between my legs

3. House on Fire

Some men search for diamonds
Some men lust for gold
Some men die with monkeys on their back
Some souls have already been sold
The rich man he’s so proper
The merchant he’s so neat
The poor man’s down in his getto flat
Just tryin’ to beat the heat

Chorus
Can’t you feel it
House on fire
Can’t you feel it
House on fire

The father he looks so restless
The mother she looks so faint
The old man’s down on Hollywood Boulevard
Praying to a dime store saint
They tell a social worker
About a son who will not speak
Yet he’s out working for the government
As a fifty cent side show freak

Chorus
Can’t you feel it
House on fire
Can’t you feel it
House on fire

4. High School Queen

You can see her struttin’ on her way to class
All dressed up in diamonds that are made of glass
She makes all the schoolboys carry her books
Just by giving them those ice cream looks
When she walks, she shakes that thing
All the boys are dangling on a string
Just by pouting she gets her way
The way she plays, it makes me say

Chorus
High school queen
Teenage dream
High school queen
So long and lean

The lunch bell rings she sits down to eat
She can’t stop squirming in her lunch room seat
She just can’t wait ‘til Friday night
‘Cause she know that she’s outta sight
She never listens to rock and roll
She hates disco from lead to toe
But she wants to boogie, she wants to rock
She wants to party around the clock

Chorus
High school queen
Teenage dream
High school queen
So long and lean

Gum drop eyes and lollypop lips
But below the belt it’s just chains and whips

Chorus
High school queen
Teenage dream
High school queen
So long and lean

5. Symptoms of Passion

It’s so heavy I can feel it
Mashin’ my skin down to the bone
I wonder how long I can stand it
Call my doctor in the phone

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion
I’ve got all the usual signs
I’ve got symptoms of passion
Lord I hope your love’s in time

It give me chills and makes be shake
I try to stand but I just fall down
My fever is making me bake
My head is starting to pound

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion
I’ve got all the usual signs
I’ve got symptoms of passion
Lord I hope your love’s in time

I think I’m slipping under
Getting’ closer to my grave
And I’m beginning to wonder
If there’s a cure that can save

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion
I’ve got all the usual signs
I’ve got symptoms of passion
Lord I hope your love’s in time

6. Dance Hall Gigolo

He makes the girls shake
He gets all he can take
He’ll make your earth move
As he rides in the groove
He just works to fast
He doesn’t mean a word
Your love he needs
He just begs and pleads

When he starts to dance the girls want romance
When he starts to dance the girls want romance

Dance hall gigolo
Stealin’ all the lady’s dough
Dance hall gigolo
Stealin’ all the lady’s dough

He’s all in black
He’s got the knack
He’s danced his whole life
Won’t appeal your fight
Got his hair all brushed
Oh they don’t even budge
He just needs to feel
All the love he can steal

When he starts to dance the girls want romance
When he starts to dance the girls want romance

Dance hall gigolo
Stealin’ all the lady’s dough
Dance hall gigolo
Stealin’ all the lady’s dough

7. Shell of a Man

Not too far away in this very town
Lives a man confused with his world upside down
He met a woman and he gave her his heart
But she made him play a fool of a part
She took his love and under her spell he fell
She gave him nothing but an empty shell

He was a shell of a man
He was a shell of a man
He was an empty
Empty shell of a man
He was a shell
Empty shell of a man

He walks the streets at night all alone
Searchin’ for a lover he can call his own
Searchin’ desperately for a reason to live
He needs love but has no love to give
He needs a lover to forget his past
He needs a lover but one that will last

He was a shell of a man
He was a shell of a man
He was an empty
Empty shell of a man
He was a shell
Empty shell of a man

8. Fight for It

If you believe in something bad enough
Fight for it
Getting what you want is tough
Fight for it

Don’t let them push you around
Don’t let them get you down
Give them a taste of your knuckles
Hand them a royal crown

If you believe in something bad enough
Fight for it
Getting what you want is tough
Fight for it
If you believe in something bad enough
Fight for it
Getting what you want is tough
Fight for it

You got it stored up inside you
You better let it out
Let is read in the headlines
Beaten severely about

If you believe in something bad enough
Fight for it
Getting what you want is tough
Fight for it
If you believe in something bad enough
Fight for it
Getting what you want is tough
Fight for it

9. Hidin'

Running down the alley
Running down the street
Lookin for a place to hide
Gotta find a hideout
We will never meet
Lookin for a place to hide
To get away from you I’ll be runnin for miles
Lookin for a place to hide
Without goin into details you’re just not my style
Lookin for a place to hide

Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin from your love
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin from your love

Searchin all about
Man I must have spent a mint
Lookin for a place to hide
I’m trying to lose you baby
Can’t you take a hint
Lookin for a place to hide
Lookin for a place
Where I just can’t be found
Lookin for a place to hide
You got a nose like a bloodhound
But you keep coming round
Lookin for a place to hide

Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin from your love
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin I’m hidin
Hidin from your love

10. Gamblin' on You

You take my money
You call me honey
Ain’t nuthin funny
Bout the way that you love me

Gamblin’ on you
Don’t make me your fool
Gamblin’ on you
You’re too cool for school

Seven come eleven
A little bit of heaven
Those lips are movin
Do you know what you’re doin’

Gamblin’ on you
Don’t make me your fool
Gamblin’ on you
You’re too cool for school

Solo

Gamblin’ on you
Don’t make me your fool
Gamblin’ on you
You’re too cool for school

11. My Own Game

I was born, proud and free.
To seek the life ahead of me.
When I was ten, I became a man.
Started working on my own plan.
Got more desire.
My ambition.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Form on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
No one helps me, I work alone.
Play my fingers to the bone.
This game I play, is not a chance.
I play to win, like a quick romance.
No chain will bind me, I'm feeling free.
Always do just what I please.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Firm on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't
Try to me
I make the rules, I make the claim,
I can't lose at my own game.
not the same
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't lose at my own game.

12. Urban Desperado

The urban desperado
Drives an Eldorado
Long and black with big white walls
He’s got a phone and TV
He such a sight to see
As he cruises all the shopping malls
He wears a leisure suit
He looks like a fruit
But little girls are what he likes
He’s got nothin’ to say
Wears a greasy toupee
He likes to be tickled with spikes

Hey little girl let me give you a ride
Ride in my Eldorado
Hey little girl let me give you a ride
Ride, ride urban desperado

He’s got a wife and kids
He’s got baggy eyelids
With a great big scowl on his face
He got two cute little girls
With shiny blond curls
Ya make his heart start to race
He’ll offer you a ride
But once you’re inside
He mixes you a couple of drinks
When he’s makin’ his play
You want to go away
You know he’s got one thing on his mind

Hey little girl let me give you a ride
Ride in my Eldorado
Hey little girl let me give you a ride
Ride, ride urban desperado

13. Card Shark

Deal another hand won’t you please
I’ll bet the stars the grass and trees
Deal those cards any game’s okay
I’ve got the feelin today’s my lucky day
Give me another pile of chips
Another shot to wet my lips
Take my hat and my coat and tie
Stake those cards when you hear me cry

Card shark
Don’t put your bite on me
Deal those cards
So I can see
Card shark
Don’t put your bite on me
Any game
From A to Z

Take my wife and my first born child
Five card stud with aces wild
A royal flush that I might see
Got a perfect stare that will deceive
I you decide to stack the deck
Well I’ll just write a rubber check
Take my hat and my coat and tie
Stake those cards when you hear me cry

Card shark
Don’t put your bite on me
Deal those cards
So I can see
Card shark
Don’t put your bite on me
Any game
From A to Z

14. Smother Me

Smother me baby
I like your hair
You come on too heavy
And that’s all fair
I know you mean well but you’re driving me insane
Don’t mean too hold you back babe but you’re givin’ me a pain
Why can’t you be the girl, that I need
Maybe come over later, you know how to make me feel

I know the girl
That I’m lookin’ for
Is that you honey
Knockin’ at me door

You call my number
And fill me with lies
You wreck my slumber
And waste me time
No matter where I go I always see your face
Why don’t you take the cue and give me my own space
I’m movin’ out and the minute I leave
You know I’m hoping for a moments peace

I know the girl
That I’m lookin’ for
Is that you honey
Knockin’ at me door
