Damn Yankees Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Coming of Age (4:21)
Dressed to kill and lookin' dynomite,
with her high-laced stockings and her sweater so tight.
I asked her her name, she said her name was "Maybe."

Well she walked up to me, and she asked me to chance
I said, "I am lookin' for some wild romance,"
She gave me a wink--she said I should think about it, maybe

She said, "What you got babe, is what I need.
Your kind of love got me on my knees."
I'm so tied up
What you got got a hold on me, your kind of love make a man outta me
I'm so tied up, you got me so fired up

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was comin' of age

If looks could kill, I'd be dead on the floor
You got me all tied up, honey, beggin' for more
Somebody call a doctor, I think I'm goin' crazy

(Because) What you got, babe, is what I need
Your kind of love got me on my knees
I'm so tied up
What you got got a hold on me
Your kind of love make a man outta me
I'm so tied up
You got me so fired up

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of....

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of...
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of age
She's come, come, comin' of age
Yeah she come, she come, she come
2. Bad Reputation (4:29)
When you wake up in the morning, and you're lyin' in my bed
Do you think of me, how I made you scream
It was an all night love affair (are you ready, I'm ready)
Say "Mary go 'round again"
Would a lollipop get ya back on top from the candy man, yeah friend?
Got a hunger for affection, I just can't get enough
Well I read you, baby, like an open book
Now the doctor's in, let me take a look
Say yeah, yeah, s'alright

I got a bad, bad reputation
(I got) a bad, bad reputation

When you step into the spotlight, you're a cherry red machine
(wanna touch you, wanna taste you)
Wanna kiss you in between
You legs say action, your body built for speed
I know what I do for you, won't you do the same for me

Did I mention my intentions?
I just can't get enough
You can huff and puff, try to blow me down
But the big bad wolf is back in town
Say yeah, yeah, I'll bite

I got a bad, bad reputation
A bad, bad reputation

Ever heard the story (said it's true)
'Bout a travellin' man (he'd been around)
He could have any woman (welcome to)
Palm of his hand (blow ya down)
She could never fight it (no she won't)
'Cause you know she needs it so bad, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Bad, bad reputation
Bad, bad reputation
Bad, bad reputation
3. Runaway (4:02)
(Everyone needs a place to run away, run away)

Summer night, moonlit sky
Tearing pages from a magazine, she cries
"I don't wanna be the lonely one tonight."
She said, I came to this place, full of dreams
Young and innocent and only 16
Now I wonder if it's too late to turn back.

So she runs, and she hides, and she dries the tears from
her eyes
And the night goes on, and on, and on

She's in the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

Perfect day, feels like Spring
Can see forever but you can't see anything
Now I wonder why they call it "paradise"

It's a crime, it's a shame
And they won't remember your name
And your life goes on, and on, and on

It's like the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
But she won't go home
So she's gotta run, run, run away

She came from a small town
So tired of getting pushed around
In the dark of the night, no one around
She'll run from this shabby town, yeah, yeah, yeah

It's a laugh, it's a game
Don't you let it drive you insane
Cause your life goes on, and on, and on....

It's like the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
But she won't go home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

She's in the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away
4. High Enough (4:43)
I don't wanna hear about it anymore
It's a shame I've got to live without you anymore
There's a fire in my heart
A pounding in my brain
It's driving me crazy

We don't need to talk about it anymore
Yesterday's just a memory
Can we close the door

I just made one mistake
I didn't know what to say
When you called me baby

Don't say goodnight
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way

Can you take me high enough
To fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday's just a memory
(Yesterday's just a memory and)

I don't want to live without you anymore
Can't you see I'm in misery
And you know for sure
I would live and die for you
And I'd know just what to do when you call me baby

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday's just a memory

I'm running
I was running for the door
The next thing I remember
I was running back for more, yeah

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way (all the way, all the way, yeah)

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa

Can you take me high enough
Won't you fly me over (won't you fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa
5. Damn Yankees (4:37)
Hey brother, ready for another
Dose of my Yankee Pride
In the jungle you just might stumble
On to something that you never tried
Got that right

There was trouble in the east, worry in the west
Till the wall came tumblin' down
Shift in the sand, rockets to the madman
Haven't heard a sound

You don't have to worry, help is on the way
We don't need no, "Thank you, ma'am"
We know what they're gonna say

(They say)
Hey, hey, damn Yankee
Woh, oh, oh, damn Yankee
(How we doin')

Now I say what I want and I do what I want
And I go where I want to go
Ain't no strong man, safe from the hang man
Baby, now don't ya know

If you need assistance, I'll be on the way
You run into a little resistance
You know what they're gonna say

(They say)
Hey, hey, damn Yankee
Woh, oh, oh, damn Yankee
Hey, hey, damn Yankee

They landed at Plymouth Rock, the kids was ready to roll
Greasy dictator down south of us, lost all control
He didn't have time to see me, he didn't have time to thank me
Suck on the barrel of my hot shotgun
Smile when you say, "Damn Yankee"

Hey, hey, damn Yankee
Woh, oh, oh, damn Yankee
Hey, hey, damn Yankee
Woh, oh, oh, damn Yankee
Damn Yankee, damn Yankee
6. Come Again (5:38)
I was a loner crusin' with the wind
I wasn't lookin' when you pulled me in
I had to leave you like I always did
You knew damn well I'd come again

Now I'm falling where I've never been
My resistance is wearing thin
Somewhere in the distance
like a long lost friend
Whoa oh oh oh, yeah--
Lord, here I come again
Come again

Yeah
Been so long since I've seen you girl
Swear I've been around the world
Every room is an empty space
In the darkness I see your face
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa

When I finally get my hands on you
Tell you what I'm gonna do
Lay you down, strip you bare
Make love to you till the morning comes around

I wasn't lookin' when you pulled me in
Whoa oh oh oh
Yeah--
Lord, here I come again
Come again
Come again
I said Lord

I wasn't lookin' when you pulled me in
Whoa oh oh oh
Yeah--
Lord, here I come again

Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa

Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa
Whoa Whoa Whoa

I wasn't lookin' when you pulled me in
Whoa oh oh oh
Yeah--
Lord, here I come again
7. Mystified (4:14)
You don't have to love me baby
I don't give a damn
You've got the time I've got the touch
And you know who I am

It's simplified, I'm mystified
A case of hit and run
Ain't no use no more abuse
You are my number one
And I'm in love
I'm mystified, baby
Yeah, I'm in love
I'm mystified, baby
yeah, yeah, yeah

You're my kind of lover
You always keep me mystified

I'm in love
And I'm mystified, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, now
You're my kind of lover
You always keep me mystified

Well I get out of the kitchen
When I can't take the heat
What you've got cooking, hun
It's good enough to eat
Well, in walked the boss man
With a boom, boom, boom
He said, "Break time's over, boy,
Get back to pushin' that broom."

Well, that's the way it goes sometimes
He said "sweep!"
It's the story of my life
Whoa oh yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah now
You're my kind of lover (you're my kind of lover)
You always keep me mystified
You just keep it comin', babe
You always wanna keep me satisfied
You're my kind of lover (you're my kind of lover)
You always keep me mystified

Whoa oh oh oh

I don't mind pushing that broom baby
Long as I'm pushin' back towards you
mm mm, mm mm, ooh, say

Yeah, yeah, yeah, now
You're my kind of lover (you're my kind of lover)
You always keep me mystified
Yeah, you're my kind of lover, baby (you're my kind of lover)
You always wanna keep me satisfied
You're my kind of lover (you're my kind of)
Woah, oh--
You know you keep me mystified
8. Rock City (4:28)
Here comes the night time
And it's knockin' at my door
Lady luck, she's come around
And she wants a little more

Down on the boulevard
They're screamin' like a child
"If I can't play that mean guitar
It's gonna drive me wild, wild"

Rock City, here I come
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, U.S.A.

The sidewalk's moving
The palm trees sway
The switchblade girls line 'em up in L.A.
Everybody came here from somewhere to play
They wear their guitars low just like Jimmy Page

Well, I've been to London
I've been to France
I've been to Mississippi
Where they taught me to dance

Lord, have mercy, I ain't never seen
Nobody going down like this beauty queen

Rock City, here I come
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, U.S.A.
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, U.S.A.

(I'm on fire)
(I'm on fire)
I'm on fire
(I'm on fire)
Just can't get enough (I'm on fire)
You can't stop me now (I'm on fire)
You can't hold me down (I'm on fire)
I said come on, come on
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'
Can't stop rockin'

Rock City, here I come
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, U.S.A.
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, here I come
Rock City, U.S.A.
9. Tell Me How You Want It (4:32)
Hey yeah!
Look out, I'm a man with a mission
Tell you what I wanna do
We've gotta move, we don't need no permission
Just need me and you
And you ought to know
If there's a way, I will come crashing through your door, mmm-hmm
I'll take you higher than you've ever been before
So come on won't you

Tell me how you want it
Tell me what you want me to do
Someday I'm gonna be a rich man
Baby you got nothing to lose

Now I know you've got a heart like a lion
How much can you take?
You and me gotta run like the river
This dam's about to break
Rolling like thunder from above I'll take you there
Hey yeah
It's now or never
Gotta get up while we can
You gotta

Tell me how you want it
Tell me what you want me to do
Someday I'm gonna be a rich man
Baby you got nothing to lose

Whoa-oh-oh
Tell me how you want it (how you want it)
Tell me what you want me to do (whoo-ooh)
Someday I'm gonna win you over
You got nothing to lose

Going nowhere ain't no pleasure
It's pain when you're living a lie
Don't make it over, don't talk it over
Just jump in my car, jump in my car and we'll
Run, run, run, like there's no tomorrow (whoa-oh-oh)
Run, run, run, run (ooh! oh! yeah!)
Yeah!
Whoo!

Rolling like thunder from above I'll take you there
I'll take you higher than you've ever been before
Now come on, yeah
You've got to

Tell me how you want it (won't you tell me)
Tell me what you want me to do
Someday I'm gonna be a rich man
Baby you got nothing to lose

Oh-oh-oh

Tell me how you want it (tell me how you want it)
Tell me what you want me to do
Someday I'm gonna win you over
You got nothing to lose

Tell me how you want it
Tell me how you want it
Tell me how you want it
Tell me how you want it
10. Piledriver (4:18)
Nice licks
I can feel this's gonna be a rhythm and blues song
Nice, real nice, tasty

Wait a minute

Well if you want it baby
Slide on up and take me home
And go ahead and drive me crazy
You can't leave well enough alone
Ow

'Cause I'm a piledriver
Piledrivin' man
I'm a piledriver
Piledrivin' man

So you say you love me
Well shake me up and cut me loose
Let's shake me down like you've got rabies
And slip your neck inside of my noose

I'm a piledriver
Piledrivin' man
I'm a piledriver
Piledrivin' man

Another nasty situation (c'mon baby)
I heard that story line before (oh, hey)
We're gonna rock this fuckin' nation (oh! ow! yeah!)

I was cruizin' backstage in Des Moines, Iowa
And a little girl comes up next to me and says
"Mr. Nugent do you think my skirt is short enough?"
I said, "Baby, you want to be alive you've got to piledrive!"

Did anybody get the license plate number of that truck?
[background chatter]

Piledriver
Piledrivin' man
I'm a piledriver
Piledrivin' man

Yes I am
Piledriver
Piledrivin' man
Piledriver
Yes I am a
Piledrivin' man

Whoa nice

Oh rapture me, right now
