Lyrics

1. CONTAGIAUS

Run it through a red light
Twice the speed of sound
Drive it on the white line
Pull it in and out

Grab the wheel and take a chance at luck
We got the rhythm, gonna tear it up
And burn it after midnight

[Chorus:]
Oh—oh—oh
Get dangerous—it’s contagious
Oh—oh—oh
Outrageous—it’s contagious
Walkin’ on a high wire
Over a net of flames
Headin’ for the wild life
We’re free to break the chains
Don’t hesitate when the feeling’s right
Forget about it, shake and roll the dice
And burn it after midnight

[Chorus]


2. L.A. ROCK

Burn’n up the street
Hip lock body talk
Groov’n to the beat and shak’n

Red hot slip shot
Polka dot bikini top
Don’t need an invitation

Headphone stereo
Putt’n on a free show
Driv’n all the fellas crazy

L.A. Rocks
Moves non-stop
Turn up the music
And let’s get crazy

[Chorus:]
It’s boys’ night out
In the city
Boys’ night out
Oh girl you look so cool

California chic
Tick tock no clock
Sneak a little peek sensation

Juke box coin slot
Tried to peek—got caught
I need a reservation

Cool shades lemonade
Margaritas in the shade
Who said liv’n’s easy

L.A. Rocks
Moves non-stop
Turn up the music
And let’s get crazy

[Chorus]

It’s boys’ night out
In the city
Boys’ night out
Oh girl you look so cool
Boys’ night out
Get down and dirty
Boys’ night out
No there ain’t no rules

She’s a rocker—non-stopper
Ballroom queen—a real show stopper
She’s got it—can’t knock it
Oh no—you got it all baby

Got a Long Island ice tea
Private room, her and me
Ooh, I must be dream’n
She’s got big dreams, big bucks
Nice tan—look don’t touch
That’s my Mercedes

Two tone full blown
Technicolor Kodachrome
You oughtta be in pictures

L.A. Rocks
Moves non-stop
Turn up the music
And let’s go crazy

[Chorus]


3. TEMPTATION

Here we are just you and I alone
Passions high—we both know this is wrong
You got a lover, and baby so do I
Temptation’s burn’n deep inside

I close my eyes and I can feel ya next to me
Oh so long my secret fantasy
You like the danger
But I don’t like the price we’ll pay

[Chorus:]
Can’t fight this
Temptation
Now I’m in the danger zone
Temptation
You make it so hard to say no
Temptation
Now just leave a good thing alone

It’s not too late to turn and walk away
It’s gett’n harder the longer that you stay
Don’t lead me on, girl
Just turn your pretty head and walk away

[Chorus]

You’re driv’n me insane
Temptation
Now I’m in the danger zone
Temptation
You make it so hard to say no
Temptation
Now just leave a good thing alone


4. THE KID GOES CRAZY

Two blondes in a T-Bird
Down on Sunset Boulevard
Oh, Hollywood you’re lookin’ good!

Lights, camera, action
Yeah, I’m gonna be a star
Just like I knew I always would

My hair is long
I got my red Reebocks on
Oh yeah, I’m lookin’ pretty cool

[Chorus:]
The kid goes crazy
The kid goes crazy
The kid goes crazy
The kid goes wild—in Hollywood
The kid goes crazy
The kid goes crazy
Every time you hear that music
Look out, man, I’m talkin’ ‘bout the kid

Sittin’ in the movies
How I love the silver screen
‘Specially when the star is me

Photographs and autographs
They all want a piece of me
In Hollywood
I’m the king


5. FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE

You’re mak’n plans you’ll never keep
The cocaine flows and the talk is cheap
Started out a friendly game
First the pleasure, then the pain

Dream a million dreams of gold
You tell yourself that you’re in control
It goes on and on but the truth remains
It goes on and on
No, you just can’t walk away
Break the chains

[Chorus:]
Are you willing to fight?
Fight for your life
Fight for your life
Are you ready to fight?
Fight for your life
Fight for your life

The endless lies and the sleepless nights
All the friends that said goodbye
One by one
You see ‘em walk away
One by one
Right now you gotta make the change
Walk away

[Chorus]

Promises you’ll never keep
The cocaine flows, the talk is cheap
It goes on and on
But the truth remains
It goes on and on
No, you just can’t walk away
Break the chains

[Chorus]


6. ARMED AND DANGEROUS

I saw her stand’n there
The heat of passion fills the air
Drawn into her flame—hot
Can’t break away from her spell

Wanted by many, but few realize
That her every move is a crime
Ooh, she’s so dangerous
She’s gonna take me alive

[Chorus:]
She’s armed and dangerous
She hides behind innocent eyes
She’s armed and dangerous
Guilty of sensuous crimes
Ooh, she’s so dangerous, dangerous
She prowls through my hear like a thief
Thief in the night

The revolver loads
Then the chamber spins
Explodes
Straight through the heart
Shot
She walks away in the night

Victim of passion a sensuous crime
Caught in the heat of the night
Ooh, she’s so dangerous
She’s gonna take me alive

[Chorus]

I was shot—shot—shot and left for dead
I was shot—shot—fall’n off the edge

[Chorus]

She’s armed and dangerous
She hides behind innocent eyes
She’s armed and dangerous
Her every move is a crime
She’s armed and dangerous
Caught in the heat of the night
She’s armed and dangerous
She’s gonna take me alive


7. RHYTHM OR NOT

You tear it up
From one to four
That back beat rhythm’s gonna knock down
that door
Double time with a side step stride
You got everyone fall’n one beat behind

Rim shot rock
She’s got it
Hey man, look at those timbales
Rim shot rock
She’s got it
She’s got that swing that puts
Sex on the brain

[Chorus:]
Rhythm or not
Here she comes again
Rhythm or not
Here she comes again

Bang that drum and ring that bell
Throw all my money down the wishin’ well
Big bang boom with stiletto shoes
She’s got me singin’ those “Please baby,
give me some” blues

Rim shot rock
She’s got it
Hey baby, do fries come with that shake
Rim shot rock
She’s got it
She’s got that swing that puts
Sex on the brain

[Chorus]

Ooh, ooh, let me in
That rhythm drives me insane
Ooh, ooh, let me in
She’s got that swing that puts
Sex on the brain

[Chorus]


8. BODILY HARM

Breaking the silence
Pounding hearts hear the beating drum
Losing my senses I’m mortally wounded
The hunter is on the run

Shots fired
Streaks through the dark
Dead in my tracks
They’ve hit their mark

[Chorus:]
Bodily harm, destroying my defenses
Bodily harm, whoa
Bodily harm, I’ll have to take my chances
Bodily harm, whoa

She had the element of surprise
I’m overcome
My desire left a trail a mile wide
Her body the smoking gun

Love cuts
Sharp as a knife
Can’t feel the pain
When it’s done right

[Chorus]

It’s no use running
There’s no escape
No use being afraid


9. EYES OF A SRTANGER

I’ve been wait’n girl to get you alone
And slip into your sexual zone
For so long we’ve been only friends
For so long had to just pretend

But, this is the time
This is the place
This could be our magic moment

So give me your love
Give me your touch
And look in the eyes of a stranger

[Chorus:]
In the eyes
Eyes of a stranger
In the eyes
Eyes of a stranger

Your body’s so hot in my hands
Gonna do it to ya—slide it in
I’ll show you every inch I’m a man
Then I’ll get it up and do it again

This is the time
This is the place
This is what dreams should be made of

So give me your love
Give me your touch
And look in the eyes of a stranger

[Chorus]

10. I'LL CRY FOR YOU

(Instrumental)
