1. CHANGE IN THE WEATHER

We're the younger generation,
and we're here to face the day.
Heard all across the nation,
and we got so much to say.
Ready for a change,
ready for a change in the weather. Ooh, yeah!
We will keep the fire burnin'
And this big wheel will keep spinnin'

We're the children of the sixties.
Watched the seventies go bye.
Now, we made it through the eighties.
My, my how time does fly
Just around the corner is a brand new century

Now we'll keep the fire burnin'
And this old world will keep spinnin'
'round and 'round, and around.

Yes we'll keep the fire burnin'
And this old world will keep turnin'
'round and 'round, and around.
A-turnin' 'round and 'round, yeah.

I think we're ready for a change in the weather.
I think we're ready for a change of scene.
Ready for a change in the weather.
I'm ready for a change for you and me. Ah yeah, yeah. Ooh.

Really do, I think we're ready for a change in the weather.
I think we're ready for a change of scene.
Ready for a change in the weather.
I'm ready for a change, change, change for you and me.

I think we're ready for a change in the weather.
I think we're ready for a change of scene.
Ready for a change in the weather.
I'm ready for a change for you and me!

Just around the corner, oh, is a brand new century.
I'm waitin'.
I'm ready!
(We're ready!)
Yeah


2. EDISON' MEDICINE

You're guilty of crime in the first degree,
Second and third as well.
My jury finds you'll be serving your time
When you go straight to hell.

'Cause he was Lord of the Lightning,
Though "socially fright'ning",
But never out to sell.

Their nickels and pence
Meant more than did sense,
And not the sensible thing.

Nor did the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy. You was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
All along, world was wrong. You was right.

All that he saw, all he conceived,
They just could not believe.
Steinmetz and Twain were friends that remained,
Along with number three.
He was electromagnetic, completely kinetic,
"New Wizard of the West."
But they swindled and whined that he wasn't our kind,
And said Edison knew best.

He was the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy. You was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
Said you was outta your mind!

You took a shot and it did you in.
Edison's medicine.
You played your cards, but you couldn't win.
Edison's medicine.

I spent twelve years of hard time,
More like the best years of my life.
Never heard or read a single word
About "the man" and his "wicked mind."
They'll sell you on Marconi.
Familiar, but a phony.
Story goes they sold their souls
And swore that you'd never know...

About the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy. You was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
Swore you was outta your mind!

You took a shot and it did you in.
Edison's medicine.
You played your cards, but you couldn't win.
Edison's medicine.


3. DON'T DE-ROCK ME

I ain't no program on your television screen.
They only taught me what they wanted me to be.
Heard all your so-called facts. Now hit me with the truth.
Takes a lotta nerve the way you played me for the fool.

It's my personal selection to fly in my own direction.
No time for fuckin' 'round with mediocrity.
Takes ev'rything I got just tryin' to be me.
Life's like a highway. We're all try'n' to stay on time.
Travel atcha own speed. You take your lane, I'll take mine.
Don't believe all that you hear or half of whatcha see.
'S'waste o' time to criticize. Don't de-rock me.

[Chorus:]
Don't de-rock me. Don't de-rock me.
You be you and I'll be me. Don't de-rock me.

"Backstage Betty", banana in her cherry, in the shower down on her knees.
Like to think she'll own ya if she'll do all that ya please.
Hurts like a mother bein' cursed by a punter who's five sheets to the wind.
Won't stop at nothin', claimin' to be cousin till security lets 'em in.

Now I'm no symbol of perfection, so why deal with this infection?
Tired of bein' treated like some piece of property.
Fakes, lies, patronizin' don't sit well with me.
Blastin' down the highway, try'n' to stay between the lines.
You can get to where you're go'n'. Just don't ignore the signs.
Don't de-rock me. Don't de-rock me.
'S'waste o' time to criticize. Don't de-rock me.

[Chorus:]


4. CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT

I'm in love with a lady
And I know the lady's in love with me
And she knows how to always be there
That's why she's willin' and ready

But now and then, every once in a while
Something inside of me, maybe inside of her...
Have you ever had one of those days
Where it all is going wrong
And it just can't seem to get along?
But through it all you know you're gonna make it.

Call it true love
Call it not meant to be
You can call it anything at all, you see.
Call it what you want
It's all the same to me.

Music means a lot to me
Like love, I make it when I can.
All I am is all I'll ever be
And that's just a boy from Texarkana.

But now and then oh, but once in a while,
They start treating me like some kind of superstar.
Need I mention, at the end of the day
What matters most of all
It's not where you're at
Or where you're comin' from
When all is said and done
You can call it...

Heavy metal, hard-core, pop, punk, or thrash
You can call it anything, it don't matter to me
Call it what you want
It's all music to me

Call it communism, call it free
Some call the ocean what some call the sea
Call it what you want
That doesn't change a thing for me
Not a thing...

Baby's lyin' in the cradle
Universe is all within his reach
Wearin' rags or mink and sable
Needs a guidin' hand or it's out on the streets

Now momma's out
She's never at home
Daddy's taking care of business
He's out on the road
It's rainin' cats and dogs
But the child within us all must face the storm

Call it individuality
Some call it fate, others reality
Call it what you want
It doesn't matter to me

Call it communism, call it free
Some call the ocean what some call the sea
Call it what you want
That doesn't change a thing for me
Not a thing


5. SONG AND EMOTION

See him there
Most every day
A lonely man and his guitar
In his eyes, I see the pain
All the faces and the places
All the trouble that he's seen

There was a time
There was a day
They'd come from miles around
They all knew his name
But days gone by are gone
Now only memories remain

Then he starts to play
Suddenly the pain slowly fades away
Tattered, torn, and frayed
There's a place within his heart he'll always save
For the song and emotion
Know he's got to his dying day
Song and emotion
You can hear him play
You can still hear him say
"Better run for cover, 'cuz it looks like rain again!"

And now his life is but a shadow of his dreams
The calm is over, been stormin' for years
He turns and leans his shoulder to the wind
Lost again

All alone on his way to the top
Somehow, somewhere, something was lost
Through it all he knew his only friend was
Song and emotion
Know he's got to his dying day
Song and emotion

Where are they now?
Where are those people who promised him his dreams?
Where are they now for this lonely creature on the streets,
Broken, humbled by the cold reality?
Life at the top ain't always what it seems
Oh, better run for cover 'cuz it looks like rain again!
You best be careful of what you dream
Of what you dream

Song and emotion...
Song and emotion...
Song and emotion...
Song and emotion


6. TIME

Time.
You've got to wake up ev'rybody,
Seven-thirty o'clock,
It's time to go to work.
A-send the young to school,
Gonna teach them the golden rule.
Talk about things that they don't wanna know about.
Now teacher, teacher, can't you see,
I'm tired and I need some sleep.
I don't wanna hear whatcha gotta say
About arithmetic or history.
All that jive don't mean a thing to me.
It's all a waste of time.

I ain't got no time for doin' this,
Ain't got no time for doin' that,
Ain't got no time for that at all, no!
I ain't got no time for messin' 'round,
For funky bullshit goin' down.
Just time for rock-n-roll. Oh yeah.
I just got time to rock-n-roll.

Why now, must they take my favorite song,
Turn around and say it's wrong, when I know it's right?
Now, why don't they just leave it alone,
'Cause it's only rock-n-roll, but I like it!!
Now, listen Mrs. Politician,
Don't ya try to tell me how to sing my song.
Tell me, who do you think you are?!
Who do you think you are?!

I ain't got no time for messin' 'round,
For funky bullshit goin' down.
No time for that at all, no!
I ain't got no time for Uncle Sam,
Taxin' my money, tax my land.
Just time for rock-n-roll, woh yeah!
I just got time to rock-n-roll!

Tell 'em, Frankie!!


7. GOVERNMENT PERSONNEL

Go straight to hell,
All you government personnel,
Sittin' awf'ly well
In your big, white house up on the hill.

You say now, give me a home
Where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and antelope play.
You can bet your ass we'll blow them all away.

Fuck it up until it's bent,
Then a-wonder where it went.
Thinkin' you was a-heaven sent, ha ha ha,
You're nothin' but hell!

Go straight to hell.


8. FREEDOM SLAVES

I pledge no allegiance to your flag.
I feel I got me some damn good reasons for feelin' bad.
Way they take away ev'ry mother's son,
If you want freedom now, it's got to be won.
It's only bullets. It's just a gun.
Ain't gon' hurt no one.

I don't know what they must be thinkin'.
Makin' decisions on a hard night's drinkin'.
Momma, gon' take your little boy.
Gonna make him 'to a man,
Make him a stranger in a strange land.

[Chorus:]
Freedom slaves
What have you done
Freedom slaves
With ev'ry mother's son?
Freedom slaves
Can't ya see that we're all freedom slaves?
Freedom slaves
What have you done?
Freedom slaves
And all for number one.
Freedom slaves
It's clear to see that we're all freedom slaves.

No sign of justice nor liberty
By takin' an Indian Nation, 'cause they was all that we wanted to be.
All good people from the Kingdom of the Sun.
Welcome to freedom. Now, there's work to be done.
It's only natural to know it's wrong.
Why did it go so long?

I don't know what next they'll be killin',
Rapin' the land with pollution and spillin'.
Here's to the tired, to the hungry, to the helpless and the poor.
Is there no glory for blisters and sores?

[Chorus:]

Who are those people?
So patriotically sittin' back of tables
POn their asses, lickin' labels, tryin' to change me.
You'd think the way they act, the way they carry on,
You'd think that I was the devil's Seventh Son.
But it's only words. It's just a song.
Ain't gonna hurt no one.

[Chorus:]

Freedom slaves.
Freedom slaves.
Freedom slaves.

Attention!
About Face!
March!
Left, right, left, right, left, right.
Your momma, she was a....(fade out)


9. HAD ENOUGH

Me and the boys are gonna rock tonite.
Drinkin' double shots, feelin fine. Mmmm, I like it!
I like the way, the way it makes me feel.
Now, I'm in love witcha, Lady Mary Jane.
You put my mind at ease, make me feel no pain.
Keep takin' me, keep takin' me higher, well, and higher.
Light my fire!

Ain't it funny?
'Cause the more I drink, the more I smoke, well, the better she looks.
And, honey, that's a whole lot better, whole lot better than before.
Lord! 'Cause you look so good. Yes, you look so fine.
Let's steal away and blow each other's minds.
Come on, baby. Keep takin' me higher. Yeah, yeah, yeah, and higher!

I've had enough!
Ah, maybe too, too much.
And with a little luck,
You know I'll get back up
On my feet again.

Ah, too much!

Too much to drink, too much to smoke.
I wasn't lookin' when it took a hold on me.
And it sure got a hold on me.
Oh, and it won't let go. Oh no.
I've never been this far before.
Have I reached the point, the point of no return?
When will I learn?

I've had enough!
Ah, maybe too, too much.
And with a little luck,
You know I'll get back up
On my feet again.

I've had enough!
Ah, maybe too, too much.
And with a little luck,
You know I'll get back up
On my feet again.

I've had enough!
I've had enough!
Ah, maybe too, too much.
I've had enough!


10. WHAT YOU GIVE

Who's the one that makes you happy?
Or maybe, who's the one always on your mind?
And who is the reason you're living for?
Who's the reason for your smile?

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one
To ever feel this way
I love you so much that I think I'm going insane
I've gone crazy, Outta my head
I've gone crazy, Outta my head
Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love
And what you give

Everyone needs somebody
And you know
Everybody needs someone
Well then I guess it's true
Everybody needs a special kind of love
And you're the only one I'm thinking of
You mean the world to me
You are my only

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one
To carry on this way
I love you so much I lose track of time
Lose track of the days
I'm goin' outta my head
Goin' crazy, Outta my head
Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love
And what you give

It's not what you got, It's what you give
It ain't the life you choose, it's the life you live
It's only what you give
It's not what you got
But the life you live
It's the life you live

And you're the one that makes me happy
Oh yeah baby
And you're the one always on my mind
Well then I guess it's true
You are my reason
My one and only
That I've been living for
Why can't forever be
Forever and nothing more?

I feel so lonely and I know I'm not the only one
To ever feel this way
I love you so much I lose track of time
Lose track of the days
I'm goin' outta my head
Goin' crazy, Outta my head
Can't think about nothin' but your good, sweet love
And what you give

It's not what you got, It's what you give
It ain't the life you choose, It's the life you live
It's not what you got, It's what you give
And it ain't what it's not, But what it is
Only what you give

It's not what you got, But what you give
Only what you give
It's only what you give, yeah
Can't get enough girl, of that sweet lovin' baby
What you give


11. STIR IT UP

Ev'rybody wants somethin' for nothin'.
Yeah, they all want it fo free.
These days, now nothin' cost ya somethin'.
No tellin' what it could be.

Never happen if ya never try.
All the nights awake and the tears we've cried
Could fill the seven seas.
So, c'mon, ev'rybody, c'mon, ev'rybody,
We got to give ourselves, got to give ourselves a hand.

And if we feel it's all a mess, yeah, yeah,
Why don't we try a little, try a little lve 'n' tenderness.
If we got more than comes around, yeah, yeah,
Why don't we care a little, share a little.
Sure to come back around. Guitar!

Lately everybody's thinkin'
Me, my, only I thinkin' for me.
Here lately, everbody's talkin', baby.
But we all know that talk is cheap.
We can make it happen if we make a try.

All the nights awake and the tears we've cried
Could fill the seven seas.
So, c'mon, ev'rybody, c'mon, ev'rybody,
We gotta give ourselves, gotta give ourselves a hand, yeah.

And before it falls apart, yeah, yeah,
Why don't we live a little, give a little, straight from the heart.
And if this old world gets ya down, yeah, yeah,
You gotta pick it up and toss it in the air, kick it all around. Kick it!

I don't even know how I wanna say, but I know what I wanna say.
Do you know where I'm comin' from?
As the bass plays on, and still the guitars strum,
While the Colonel beats the drum, so the whole band plays along,
And the whole world sings a song, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

And before it falls apart, yeah, yeah,
Live a little, give a little, straight from the heart.
If this whole world gets ya down, yeah, yeah,
You gotta pick it up and toss it in the air. Kick it all around.
And if you don't like the way the music plays, the way it sounds,
Hop back in the kitchen, change it all around.

Stir it up, baby. Stir it up, baby, stir it up,
Stir it up, stir it up, stir it up,
Stir it up now, stir it up, baby.

Stir it up, baby, stir it up, baby, stir it up,
Stir it up, stir it up, stir it up, stir it up,
Stir it up now, stir it up, baby. And you know:

Nobody gets somethin' for nothin'.
Nobody's gettin' it for free. [Spoken:] But you know
These days now nothin' costs ya somethin', baby.
And-a there ain't no tellin what it could be.

So stir it up, baby, stir it up, baby.
Stir it up, baby, stir it up, baby.
Stir, stir it up, baby, stir it up, baby.
Oh, U B U and I'll be me, and the world will be free.


12. CAN'T STOP

Young girl sweet as candy, a-turnin' hearts to stone.
She'll catch a young man's fancy. A-love 'em, leave 'em alone.
I should-a seen it comin'. She took me for a ride.
Still feel the fire burnin'. That's why I can't...

...Stop.
Can't stop fallin'.
I can't stop.
Can't stop fallin'.
I can't stop fallin' for your love.
Can't stop fallin'. Ah.
I can't stop.
Can't stop fallin'.
I can't win.
For losin'.
I can't stop fallin' for your love.
Can't stop fallin'.
I'm a fool for you.

Lovin' after midnight, a shadow on the run.
By the time ya realize, the damage has been done.
You better keep your distance, if ya know what's good for you.
Me, I got no resistance. And that's why I can't... (To Chorus)

Yeah, I'm a fool for you.
I'm a fool for you. Ow!

Little Miss "Cotton Candy" still turnin' hearts to stone.
Candy's fine and dandy, but then, sex don't rot your teeth
I never seen it comin'. She took by surprise.
Still feed the fire burnin'. That's why I can't... (To Chorus)

Yeah, I'm a fool for you. Ooh.
I can't stop fallin' for your love.
I can't stop. I can't stop fallin' for your love. Oh. Oh.


13. TOKE ABOUT IT

Got me a woman, won't toke about it
Says she doesn't need it, she can do without it
If I try to push it, she'll say shove it!
Baby if ya tried it maybe you might like it!
Even love it!

Loosen up!
Let's toke it over!
Loosen up!
Let's toke it over!

Always got a problem, she can't lose it
She likes to drive me crazy when she chooses
Baby, if you got it you should use it
Oh, you can play with fire, but just don't abuse it
Just use it

Loosen up!
Let's toke it over!
Loosen up!
Let's toke it over!
Loosen up!
Loosen up!

Let's toke, toke, toke about it
Let's toke, toke, toke about it
Now sticks 'n' stones'll break your bones
A little tokin' never hurt no one!
Let's toke, toke, toke about it!
Have a toke!

I'm a-tokin' witchoo
Ah, that feels better now
Let's ya feel the groove
Ah, don't stop now

Oh, keep on a-ziggin' and a-zaggin' all over the place
On the bed, on the floor
But then, who knows baby, maybe if we really like it that much
Maybe baby, we can do it some more!

Since we had a toke, no doubt about it, ha ha
Baby's feelin' better, can't live without it
Both our hearts on fire, now we're really smokin'
Mm, all we ever needed was a little tokin'!

Let's toke, toke, toke about it
C'mon! Let's toke, toke, toke about it
Now sticks 'n' stones'll break your bones
A little tokin' never hurt no one!
Let's toke, toke, toke about it! Ow!
