LET THERE BE ROCK

 

GO DOWN(1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

Ruby, Ruby, where you been so long
Done took to drinkin' whiskey
Baby since you been gone
Ain't no one I know do it as good as you
Lickin' on that lickin' stick the way you do
You got the lips to make a strong man weak
And a heathen pray
Tell you ain't just the way you speak

You know it's just the way you go down
Go down, go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down, go down

Mary, Mary, you're the one for me
And the way you hum
Sting like a bumble bee
I'll be around to see you 'bout half past ten
Ain't felt this good
Since I don't know when
You got the touch that I need so much
In your finger tips
I got the honey that ya love to taste
On those lovely lips so go down
Go down, go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down, go down

Baby rub it on
Y' know it's sticky and sweet
And it's been so long
And no else got a touch like you
I let you do the things to me
I let no other woman do
Feels good, feels good,
You do it like you should

I loved you so much
Make me so glad I'm a man
Go down, go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down, go down

DOG EAT DOG (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

Well it's a dog eat dog
Eat cat too
The French eat frog
And I eat you
Businessman, when you make a deal
Do you know who you can trust?
Do you sign your life away?
Do you write your name in dust?

CHORUS:
Hey, hey, hey
Every dog has his day
It's a dog eat dog
Dog eat dog

"Dog eat dog"
Read the news
Someone win
Someone lose
Up's above and down's below
And limbo's inbetween
Up you win, down you lose
It's anybody's game

CHORUS

And it's a eye for eye
Tooth for tooth
It's a lie
That's the truth
See a blind man on the street
Looking for something free
Hear the kind man ask his friends
"Hey, what's in it for me?"

CHORUS

LET THERE BE ROCK (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

In the beginning
Back in nineteen fifty-five
Man didn't know about a rock 'n' roll show
And all that jive
The white man had the smoltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news
He said -

"Let there be light", and there was light
"Let there be sound", and there was sound
"Let there be drums", and there was drums
"Let there be guitar", and there was guitar
"Let there be rock"

And it came to pass
That rock 'n' roll was born
All across the land every rockin' band
Was blowing up a storm
The guitarman got famous
The businessman got rich
And in every bar there was a super star
With a seven year itch
There were fifteen million fingers
Learning how to play
And you could hear the fingers picking
And this is what they had to say

"Let there be light"
"Sound"
"Drums"
"Guitar"
"Let there be rock"

One night in a club called `The Shaking Hand'
There was a ninety-two decibel rocking band
The music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd -

"Let there be rock"

BAD BOY BOOGIE (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

On the day I was born the rain fell down
There was trouble brewing in my home town
It was the seventh day, I was the seventh son
And it scared the hell out of everyone

They said stop, I said go
They said fast, I said slow
They said yes, I said no
I do the bad boy boogie

Being a bad boy ain't that bad
I've had me more dirty women than most men ever had
All you women come along with me
And I'll show you how good a bad boy can be

I said right and they said left
I said east and they said west
I said up and they said down
I do the bad boy boogie all over town

I wanna tell you no story, tell you no lie
I was born to love till the day I die
I just line them up and I knock them down
And they all came running when the word got round
(Just keep a running)

I said up, they said down
They said straight, I said round
They said lost, I said found
I said free and they said bound
Bad boy boogie

PROBLEM CHILD (1976)

(Young, Young and Scott)

 

I am hot

And when I'm not

I'm cold as ice,

Get out of my way,

Step aside

Or pay the price

 

What I want I take

What I don't I break

And I don't want you

With a flick of my knife

I can change your life

There's nothing you can do

 

'Cause I'm a problem child

 

Make my stand

 

No mans land

On my own

Man in blue

It's up to you

The seed is sown

 

What I want I stash

What I don't I smash

N' I don't need you

Dead or alive got a .45

N' I never miss

Every night

Street light

Drnkin' booze

Some run

Some fight

I win they lose

 

What I need I like

What I don't I fight

N' I don't need you

So say bye bye

While your still alive

Cause your time is due

 

'Cause I'm a problem child

OVERDOSE (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

I never smoked with no cigarettes
I never drank much booze
But I'm only a man, don't you understand
And a man can sometimes lose
You gave me something I never had
Pulled me down with you
Pulled me up, think I'm in love
Hope you can pull me through

CHORUS:
I overdosed on you
I overdosed on you
Crazy but it's true
Ain't nothing I can do
I overdosed on you

Oh woman you give to me
More than I can take
But listen honey, I don't mind
You're a habit I don't want to break
Don't want none of that hard stuff
Don't need it anymore
I'm in love, and I'm sinking fast
And I don't need no cure

CHORUS

Gee I was happy as a man could be
To far gone to escape
Power of love, don't pull me off
Just write on my grave:

CHORUS

HELL AIN'T A BAD PLACE TO BE (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

Hey you -

Sometimes I think this woman is kinda hot
Sometimes I think this woman is sometimes not
Puts me down, fools me around
What's she doing to me?
Out for satisfaction, any piece of action
That ain't the way it should be
She needs love, smells out a man
She's gotta see
Pours my beer, licks my ear
Brings out the devil in me

Hell ain't a bad place to be

Spends my money, drinks my booze, stays out every night
And I got to thinking, "Hey, just a minute, something ain't right"
Disillusions and confusion
Make me want to cry
All the same, you lead your games
Tellin' me your lies
Don't mind her playing a demon
As long as it's with me
If this is hell then you could say
It's heavenly

Hell ain't a bad place to be

Late at night turns down the lights
Closes up on me
Opens my heart, tears it apart
Brings out the devil in me

Hell ain't no bad place to be

WHOLE LOTTA ROSIE (1977)
(Young, Young, Scott)

Wanna tell you a story
'Bout a woman I know
When it comes to lovin'
Oh she steals the show
She ain't exactly pretty
Ain't exactly small
Forty-two, thirty-nine, fifty-six
You could say she's got it all

Never had a woman
Never had a woman like you
Doing all the things
Doing all the things you do
Ain't no fairy story
Ain't no skin and bone
But you give it all you got
Weighing in at nineteen stone

CHORUS:
You're a whole lotta woman
A whole lotta woman
Whole lotta Rosie
And you're a whole lotta woman

Oh honey you can do it
Do it to me all night long
Only one to turn
Only one to turn me on
All through the night time
And right around the clock
To my surprise
Rosie never stops

CHORUS
