1. ROCK 'N' ROLL OUTLAW

I don't need lots of people, tellin' me what to do
I don't need a long haired lady, to love me true as true
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

My life isn't easy baby, it's the life that I need
I got music livin' inside of me, I gotta set it free
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

Playin' music babe, is all I know
Where it wants to take me honey...

All I want from livin' is just to be left alone
All I need is an open road, 'cause I'm a rollin' stone
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, momma I don't need no one

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone


2. NICE BOYS

She hit town a rose in bloom
Smell the sweet, sweet perfume
The color faded and the petals died
Down in the city no one cried
And in the streets the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
With roaches so big they got bones
They moved in and made themselves at home

I say nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
I'm not a nice boy!

Sweet sixteen she was fresh and clean
Wanted so bad to be part of the scene
She met the man and she did the smack
And now, she pays the price layin' down on her back
Want so bad just to please the boys
Ended up bein' just a toy
Played so hard burned her life away
Lies were told no promises made

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
I'm not a nice boy...and I never was

Young and fresh when she hit town
Hot for kicks just to get around
And now she lays in a filthy room
She kills the pain with a flick and a spoon
And in the streets the garbage lies
protected by a million flies
With roaches so big they got bones
They moved in and made themselves at home

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll
Nice boys...they never play rock'n'roll


3. BUTCHER AND FAST EDDY

It happened in the suburbs north of the river
Where the smokestacks scrape the air
And gangs of short haired boys roam the streets
Get out of there way, 'cause there out to get there share

Now Butcher, he was the leader
Had a reputation for being tough but fair
He knew life was just a gamble
So he lived from day to day without a care

Stick around and I'll tell ya
About Butcher and Fast Eddy

Across the river lived Fast Eddy
He was known to be treacherous, very mean
Even Eddy's sweet young sister out on the streets
Just a girl, barely fifteen

Now Fast Eddy, he led the rival gang
And he claimed he was better...than most
One day I'm gonna fix that Butcher
Always seemed to be this cocky braggart's boast

There's only the quick and the dead
I wanna know who's layin' down

Now, I'm gonna win this fight said Eddy
Yeah...'cause I'm gonna take a knife, and I'm gonna take a gun
But Butcher, he told his mates as they gathered 'round
I got two good fists, and you know I never...
Never ever ever been afraid of anyone

And it came the night, at last for their meeting
I can't lose said Eddy, 'cause I'm the best
But the cold light of morning found Eddy
His own switchblade knife...buried deep in his chest!

Yeah that's it all....Oh-WOW Butcher, and Fast Eddy
Yeah that's it all

And the law never did touch Butcher
And I'm so glad, 'cause I know so well
He was a born with a wild free spirit, and he never...
He never was the kind to live locked up in some dirty stinkin' cell

And the kids, they still talk about it
In the back streets and alleyways around town
They still talk about that cold, windy Saturday night
That old Butcher...ya know, he put Fast Eddy down...


4. ONE OF THE BOYS

They were so damn glad when I left school
Said I was crazy 'cause I broke the rules
Time to start livin' my teenage dream
Out on the streets it was rough and mean

That's why...they call me one of the boys

Got tattooed arms and rings in my ears
Never gonna suffer a straight man's fears
Better have a drink, crankin' with the mates
Movin' fast I'm gonna make the grade

That's why...they call me one of the boys
That's why...they call me one of the boys

I'm pushin' it hard, I'm pushin' it fast
Gotta work it over, I gotta make it last

What you need is mates, staunch and true
Hold out your back they're gonna see you through
I don't look for trouble but I won't hide
I'll jump on you if you don't step aside

That's why...they call me one of the boys

There's one thing I've learned
And I know it's so true
Bad girls love bad boys but
Good girls love 'em too

I was young and wild, so much to learn
A fierce bright flame and hot to burn
Can't turn back 'cause the die is cast
I die young, from livin' fast

That's why...they call me one of the boys
That's why...they call me one of the boys
That's why...they call me one of the boys

Ah yeah...I'm just one of, I'm just one of
I'm just one of the boys
I'm just one of, I'm just one of
I'm just one of just one of the boys
I'm just one of just one of the boys
I'm just one of just one of the boys


5. REMEDY

Get outta the streets, get outta your cage
Start thinkin' sharp you gotta get some rage
Set yourself free, set yourself free
Good rockin' music is all you need

It's gonna save your head, it's gonna save your soul
That good old fashioned, good time remedy they call rock'n'roll

Ain't no time for settlin' down
You got a whole lot of noise to make in this town
Rock'n'roll that's been goin' around
You gotta, pick it up and start layin' it down

It's gonna save your head, it's gonna save your soul
That good old fashioned, good time remedy they call rock'n'roll
Rock and roll!

Don't waste my time with fancy prancin'
Just rock and roll and get everybody dancin'
Take your worries and throw 'em away
They'll make you old, they're gonna make you gray

It's gonna save your head, it's gonna save your soul
That good old fashioned, good time remedy they call rock'n'roll

Good time rock'n'roll
Good time rock'n'roll
Ow! Good time rock'n'roll
Good time rock'n'roll

Good time rock'n'roll
Baby you know they call it
Baby you know they call it rock'n'roll!
Momma you know they call it
Momma you know they call it rock'n'roll!


6. BAD BOY FOR LOVE

Thirty days in the county jail
Let me out and I just wanted to wail
Some fool tried to hold me down
I got drunk and I ripped up the town

I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Well I...I went around just to see my chick
I found her room and it was candle lit
She's makin' love to another man
I shot 'em both and they locked me in the slam

I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Mmm bad...so bad

Well I...I heard the the word there was a local break
It was a chance I just had to take
I jumped the wall and I was on the run
They came after me with a thousand guns

'Cause I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Yeah I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
Yeah I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Honey I'm bad...thirty years mama
In the county jail...


7. T.V.

You're tellin' me everything's alright
You know you tell such filthy lies
The common cold's got nothin' on you
You're a disease from which I die

You make love to my senses
Tryin' to win my heart
I ain't got no defenses...I'm beaten from the start

You insult my intelligence
While you pat me on the back
You give me something with one hand
While the other hand takes it back

You make love to my senses
Tryin' to win my heart
I ain't got no defenses no...got me beaten from the start, yeah

You cater to ?? fantasy
The web you weave is strong
You make it so hard seein' black from white
Tellin' right from wrong

You brainwash me senseless
Tearin' my brain apart
I ain't got no defenses...you got me beaten from the start, yeah

You got me beaten from the start
You got me beaten from the start
You got me beaten from the start
You got me beaten from the start

You make love to my senses
You got me beaten from the start


8. STUCK ON YOU

My babe said she won't be home tonight
Says she's got a lover well...that's alright
Hey little schoolgirl, won't you come home with me
We'll drink some Coca Cola, and watch my color t.v.

Yeah, sing it ??

Hey babe I'm stuck on you
Hey babe I'm stuck like glue
Hey babe you know I'm stuck on you stuck on you
Like a Rose Tattoo

I had a colored parrot, but it made me cry
I just forgot to feed it, and the little bugger died
I had a fish named Sam, he lived in bowl
I heated up the water, so he wouldn't get cold

Now he's gone, now he's gone

Hey babe I'm stuck on you
And hey babe I'm stuck like glue
Hey babe I'm stuck on you stuck on you
Like a Rose Tattoo...yeah, yeah yeah

Oh babe, stuck on you
Oh babe, I'm stuck on stuck on you

Hey babe, you know...
You know you got me stuck like glue
Stuck on, stuck on, stuck on you

Hey babe...yeah


9. TRAMP

Oh babe is such a tramp
Screamer creamer, a trick in the camp
You're sittin' on the fella's faces
Helpin' them live their wildest dreams

The seam in your jeans has disappeared
And I know where it's gone
Screamin' and dyin' deep inside
I know it's gone their alone

I know when you're wearin' a dress
You're not wearin' nothin' else
Except that cheeky smile on your face
Momma you got a certain sluttish grace

You're such a whore but your honesty glows
Like a badge you have won
You worn the boards right into the floor
You've only just begun

You're just a rag but you're not a bag
Indeed what makes me cry
Three hours later I'm a gammy leg, you're still waitin'
My balls are dry

The seam in your jeans has disappeared
And I know where it's gone
Screamin' and dyin' deep inside
I know it's gone their alone

Yes I know, yes I know, yes I know
I know it's gone their alone
Yes I know, yes I know, yes I know
I know it's gone their alone

Momma I'm a down
You got me down
Down on my knees and I'm screamin and dyin'
Down on my knees you got me screamin and cryin'

Ooh babe, Ooh babe
It ain't easy to take it mama
It ain't easy to take it mama


10. ASTRA WALLY

Oh Astra Wally you're a super fun thing

Astra Wally...you super fun thing

11. NEVER TOO LOUD

Well mister I got something to say
Don't tell me how to live, don't tell me how to play
Don't give me no lecture, don't try to tell me what to do
Listen to what I'm telling you

It's never too loud and it's never too strong
The banner of a working class man
It's never too late and it's never out of date
The music of a rock 'n' roll band

Don't gimme your voice, we'll give 'em no choice
We'll never take the shit they dish out
We're gonna be heard and we'll have the last word
You know we're the voice of the crowd

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, it's never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd

We gotta use brains to start making things change
Before it's too late to speak out
We're gonna strike now while the iron is hot
Let them feel the weight of our clout

Hit them so hard, hit them so fast
They'll never keep us down again
We're making them see, they're fightin' you and me
We're gonna see it through to the end

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, it's never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd
Oh it's never too loud

Gotta get wise or they'll tell us more lies
If we believe what they say
Gotta find the truth or else there ain't no use
Tomorrow won't be a better day

So hold your head high, spit in their eye
You gotta start walking real proud
Come on now boys, make a lotta noise
Don't be afraid to sing out

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd

It's never too loud, no it's never too loud
It's never too loud, no it's never too loud
Never been too loud

It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd


12. I HAD YOU AD FIRST

You said you needed freedom and love
It was possession that just ain't cool
What I want is good, good for the goose
And oh so good for the fool

You knew I'd just been down
You said it really hurts
When I was down and begging for money
You rubbed my face in the dirt

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
Tell me who's showing you now
I don't care who's showing you now

Said you didn't want love you needed lovin'
So we wouldn't have the trouble ?
I was lookin' for physical attraction
So that was quite alright by me

Said you wanted wide open spaces
A brand new sea some new faces
But late last night you caught me almost there
With a juicy new blonde pet

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
A-ha, oh, I don't care who is showing you now

Don't ask me how a woman thinks
There's no one alive to tell
She's got a big size sense of timing and fear
And that's much more than hell

She says I understand and I'll be good
I know that what you're doing is right
And when I'm minutes away, working on the road
Logic keeps her warm at night

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
No matter who is showing you now

A-ha, I had you first
Ha ha


13. FIGHTIN' SONS

Well, I was just a young man when they took me across the sea
Dressed me up in jungle green just to fight for democracy
I was just an Aussie boy in the jungle for the war
From all around the world we came not really knowing more

And you're a long way from home
Oh yes a long way from home
When you're all alone

War's got a way of making strangers into friends
I met three sons of the south and they became closer than kin
Thank god the orders came to bring the war to an end
With tears in my eyes I said goodbye to my best friends

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
We was fightin' for democracy
Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just got to be free, yeah

Now I know I'll probably never see those sons of the south again
To this Australian boy they'll always be closer than kin
And so I raise my glass to you, Bobby Bear and Bill
And though we're worlds apart, I'm thinking of you still

And men will be men wherever they may be
Deep in my heart you're the only friends of me

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
They were fightin' sons of the confederacy
Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just got a right to be free

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just gotta be free
We gotta be free, just gotta be free


14. SNOW QUEEN

A-hello baby, good to see you back with the boys again
I like the way you say hello
I love the way you won't let us go when it's getting late
Take me to your daddy's car
Let me taste your honey jar again
Ooh yeah, once again

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

A-hello baby, felt so good when I saw your flashing eyes
When I get you down on the floor
I wanna hear you moaning and groaning for more
When I taste your diamond dust
Lordy mama make me wanna bust in two
All because of you

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love
Ooh yeah

Well, a-hello baby, good to see you back with the boys again
When I taste your silver snow
Ooh baby makes me wanna get up and go
Take me for that velvet ride
I know you dig it when I'm slipping inside of you
Deep inside of you baby

Cause, you're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love


15. ROCK 'N' ROLL OUTLAW (Live)

I don't need lots of people, tellin' me what to do
I don't need a long haired lady, to love me true as true
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

My life isn't easy baby, it's the life that I need
I got music livin' inside of me, I gotta set it free
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

Playin' music babe, is all I know
Where it wants to take me honey...

All I want from livin' is just to be left alone
All I need is an open road, 'cause I'm a rollin' stone
All I need is a rock'n'roll band...somewhere new to play
And I'm on my way, I'm on my way

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, momma I don't need no one

I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, and I'm on the run
I'm a rock'n'roll outlaw, I never needed anyone


16. BAD BOY FOR LOVE (Live)

Thirty days in the county jail
Let me out and I just wanted to wail
Some fool tried to hold me down
I got drunk and I ripped up the town

I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Well I...I went around just to see my chick
I found her room and it was candle lit
She's makin' love to another man
I shot 'em both and they locked me in the slam

I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Mmm bad...so bad

Well I...I heard the the word there was a local break
It was a chance I just had to take
I jumped the wall and I was on the run
They came after me with a thousand guns

'Cause I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Yeah I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love
Yeah I'm a bad boy...a bad boy for love

Honey I'm bad...thirty years mama
In the county jail...


17. ROCK 'N' ROLL IS KING (Live)

Well it's time to drink
I don't want to think about sorrow
Be one of the boys and make some noise
There's still tomorrow

I don't watch the news, 'cause singin' the blues
Is goin' out of style
Get out on the town, forget to frown
Learn how to smile

Dance and sing, let it ring
Dance and sing, Rock'n'Roll is king
Yeah it is

I'm learnin' to fly, I don't know why
I never did it before
Go and dance the best, don't need no rest
Till I'm down on the floor

Grab a girl, watch her spin and twirl
Dance and sway
Forgettin' all the rules, be loose be cool
Learn how to play

Dance and sing, let it ring
Dance and sing, Rock'n'Roll is king

All you gotta do...
Dance and sing, let it ring
Dance and sing, Rock'n'Roll is king
Rock'n'Roll is king, Rock'n'Roll is king
Yeah
Rock'n'Roll is king
Yeah
Rock'n'Roll is king
Oh yeah
Rock'n'Roll is king
Oh yeah...yeah...yeah


18. SUICIDE CITY (Live)

You're at the end like a lamb to the slaughter
You're comin just to make your way
You don't worry about the future
'Cause the government guarantees pay

65 is the year they got planned out for you to retire
At 65 more dead than alive you'll expire

Suicide City where the girls are so pretty
The boys walk home in the rain
Suicide City, isn't it a pity
Brain drain's the name of the game

In the nerve center of the country
There's so much work to do
They gotta feed the government machine
And it lives off human food

And in the length of boxes, identity's stripped away
When they work 'em, and when they hurt 'em
They just throw 'em away

Suicide City where the girls are so pretty
The boys walk home in the rain
Suicide City, isn't it a pity
Brain drain's the name of the game

I can't take it...Suicide City!

They're tryin' to tell us out our windows
Gonna tell us in the front of the trains
A university diploma
It don't mean that you got brains

They push you to the limit
They push you 'till you drop
They push you so hard, push you so far
Push you over the top

Suicide City where the girls are so pretty
The boys walk home in the rain
Suicide City, isn't it a pity
Brain drain's the name of the game

I can't take it...Suicide City!

Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide City
I live in Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide City
Sunshine
Sunshine
Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide, Suicide
Suicide City
Suicide City, such a shame, Suicide City
Suicide City, it's such a pity, Suicide City
Suicide, Suicide!
Suicide
