Les paroles

1. FOOL FOR YOUR LOVE

Hey mamma, say what you wanna
Tell me it’s all up to you
I know you’ve been runnin all over town
Honey but what should I do?
Love can run hot, love can turn cold
Break your heart in two or so I’ve been told

Yes I know, oh baby,
I want you hear what I Say
I’m a fool for your love
Yes I am

Your love is vicious, slightly malicious
Coiled like a snake in your heart
Man is a hard one, cold as a handgun
Like I was at the start
But I keep letting love get the better of me
My head is spinning, honey
Can’t you see what I need

Oh baby, I want you to hear what I say
I’m a fool for your love
Oh baby, I want you hear what I say
I’m a fool for you love
I’m a fool for your love


2. MAGIC POWER

Something’s at the edge of your mind
And you don’t know what it is
Something you were hoping to find
But you’re not sure what it is
Then you hear the music
And it all comes crystal clear
The music does the talking,
Says the thing you want to hear

I’m young, I’m wild and I‘m free
I got the magic power of music in me
I’m young, I’m wild and I‘m free
I got the magic power of music in me

She climbs into bed, she pulls the covers overhead
And she turns her little radio on
She’s had a rotten day so she hopes the DJ
Is going to play her favorite song
It makes her feel much better,
Brings her closer to her dreams
A little magic power makes it better than it seems

She’s young now, she’s wild now she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music from me
She’s young now, she’s wild now she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music from me

If you’re thinking it over but you just can’t sort it out
Do you want someone to tell you
What they think it’s all about
Are you the one and only who’s sad and lonely,
You’re reaching for the top
Well the music keeps you going and it’s never going to stop
It’s never going to stop, it never gonna,
Never gonna, never gonna, never gonna stop

The world is full of compromise, the infinite red tape
But the music’s got the magic
It’s your one chance for escape
So turn me on, turn me up, it’s your turn to dream
A little magic power makes it better than it seems

I’m young now, I’m wild now I want to be free
I got the magic power of music in me
I’m young now, I’m wild and I‘m free
I got the magic power of music, I got the music, in me


3. AIR RAID

(Instrumental)


4. ALLIED FORCES

I’ve got something on my mind
I want you to know
Rock troops are on the move
It’s starting to show
Paratroopers everywhere
Can’t you see?
Strategic weapons
Are something we don’t need

[Chorus:]

Allied forces in every nation
Allied forces gonna take control
Allied forces of my generation
Allied forces of rock and roll

Youth culture in overdrive
Mass frustration
Too much, too little, too late
Class alienation
Denim armies working
Consolidate the might
War games, maneuvers
Rehearsals in the night

[Chorus:]
I’ve got something on my mind
I want you to know
Rock troops are on the move
It’s starting to show
Paratroopers everywhere
Are ready to fight
We’re mobile allies
Marching every night

[Chorus]

We’re taking control, control x10
Taking control


5. HOT TIME (IN THIS CITY TO NIGHT)

We’re sending out the invitation
Come and join the celebration, yea
This old town is up to something
Everybody’s really jumpin’
Rock ‘n’ Roll is dynamite

We got a hot time in this city tonight
Oh yeah (x3)

Rock me baby like a long lost friend
Then roll me over and do it again
I’m so high I’m on the ceiling
Everybody’s got the feeling
The music’s like pure dynamite

We got a hot time in this city tonight
hot time in this city tonight (x3)

Ladies and gentleman lend me an ear
I got the news that you’ve been waiting to hear
It’s no trick, it’s a rock ‘n’ roll treat
The heavy metal kids are dancing in the street
This whole town is really having a ball
Even got’em rockin’ down at city hall
I never ever seen such a beautiful sight

We got a hot time in this city tonight
hot time in this city tonight (x3)
Yeah (x3)

Hard rock rhythm is your soul
Baby let the good times roll
The neighbors wanna call the cops
But the party’s never gonna stop
Everything is gonna be alright

We got a hot time in this city tonight
hot time in this city tonight (x2)


6. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder telling right from wrong
You’ve got to read between the lines
Don’t be discouraged, don’t be afraid
We can make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The good book says it’s better to give
Than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothing in my pockets I got nothing up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart
Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith
Baby I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do

[Chorus:]
Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute, every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money
Can buy your soul Some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You better take a look inside your head
Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart

[Chorus]


7. ORDINARY MAN

Look in the mirror tell me what do you see
Or can you lie to yourself like you’re lyin’ to me
Do you fall asleep real easy feelin’ justified and right
Or do you wake up feelin’ empty in the middle of the night
You want to think you’re different,
But you know you never can
You’re just another ordinary man

Hey politician, can’t believe a word you say
Almighty media, whose truth d’you sell today?
Watchdog of justice, who keeps their eye on you?
Con man, song in hand, who you singin’ to?
The more I get to see, the less I understand
I’m just another ordinary man

[Chorus:]
Ordinary man
Just another ordinary man
Ordinary man
Comes a time to take a stand

No rest for the wicked – they get it while they can
The preachers and the teachers and your local Congressman
Everybody plays the game they played since time began
Lawyers and accountants – your media man

Oh Yeah, oh yeah

Everybody’s talkin’ but nothing gettin’ said
If you’re looking for the truth you better take a look inside your head
I see the flash of lightnin’
I hear the thunder roll
A hungry knife, a slice of life
It cuts another soul

Oh Yeah, oh yeah

Power finds a way to those who take a stand
Stand up ordinary man

Oh yeah

Once I thought the truth was gonna set me free
But now I feel the chains and its’ responsibility
I will not be a puppet I cannot play it safe
I’ll give myself away with a blind and simple faith
I’m just the same as you I just do the best I can
That’s the only answer,answer,answer…for an ordinary man

[Chorus]

No such thing as easy answers
You play to win and you take your chances

Just an ordinary man

Here’s to health, here’s to wealth
May you never doubt yourself

Just and ordinary man


8. PETITE ETUDE

(Instrumental)


9. SAY GOODBYE

Got a lot on my mind I want to tell you
I don’t know where to start
You’re getting way outta line I want to tell you
You’re acting too damn smart
This little game you’re playing
Has lost it’s fun somehow
You had me going but I figured it out
An’ I’m not playing, I’m not playing now

[Chorus:]
Say goodbye, I’ll be leaving in the morning
Nothing you can do to make me stay
Say goodbye, I’ll be leaving in the morning
Say goodbye, it’s the only thing to say
Then I’ll be on my way

Little girl, dressed to kill
I see through your disguise
You wanna be big time but you never will
Cuz I see through all your lies
You say you’re something special
Well you talk a real good game
But now the party’s over
And you just don’t sound
You just don’t sound the same, baby

[Chorus]

Don’t say you love me
Don’t say you need me (x3)

Say goodbye,

[Chorus]
