Mr.big Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Addicted to That Rush (4:46)
When I was a young boy
My momma said to me
Once a woman gets your soul
You'll never shake her free
These are words of wisdom
Tt turns out she was right
Gotta find a lover-
'Cause I need a fix tonight

Once I thought her lovin'
Was a habit I could break
But when I go without it
My body starts to ache
Whoooooo [etc.] ooooo
Watch it touch me deep inside
Whoooooo
Somethin' snaps inside my mind
When I feel it comin' ain't no sense in runnin'
I'm addicted to that rush
Every time we touch
Never get enough
'Cause I'm addicted to that rush - Yeow!

Look around I stop and stare
Got to get a taste
Pretty women everywhere
We ain't got time to waste
Lookin' for a little thang
To fit into my plans
On the town I'll hurt you down
I'm walkin' like a man
[Chorus]
2. Wind Me Up (4:11)
[I] There ought to be a law against it
To lead a man on and then let him go
What's the world comin' to
When you can't slide into home

[II] Tell it like it is woman
Tell the boy maybe or never mind
We could go all the way
The big boys don't like to waste time

[Chorus:]
Wind me up-
I need enuff to keep me satisfied
Wind me up-
I wanna hold you but my hands are tied
Wind me up-
You kiss me quick and then
You turn me off
Wind me up-

[III] The only way she winds you up
Is when you ask for too much trouble
Ain't no room for a 2nd chance
When the first one ain't even over

Packed with a powerful love
That I just can't get enough of
Lay your cards on the table
Baby make no mistake about it

[Chorus:]
[Lead Solo]
Breakdown-sexual jargon
[Chorus out]
It's time to let the cat out of the bag
3. Merciless (3:57)
Shake the waist, you got to love that taste and
Smell the rain, what a shame to let her get away
Tie me down to the race-car tracks
Smack dab in the middle of lover's lane
Zip the lipstick on like BBQ sauce
Painted lady, got to slip into something that's comfortable
Hey.. you can look but you better not touch
Shut down the motors, pull back in the clutch

[Chorus:]
That strut is merciless
Oh, oh only one word to define it
Merciless oh, oh I can't deny
That strut is merciless
Worth the weight in double trouble
Merciless oh, oh strut your stuff

What's your pick-up line, I bet ya tell her she's fine
If that don't work, don't you pack your suitcase up tonight
Don't give up, here comes a big surprise
It's more than enough to keep me satisfied

Crack the whip, baby, twist your hips
I do as I see fit, love to lick your lips a little bit
You can run, but you better not hide
There goes the dream into the lights

[Chorus]
[Bridge:]
The last thing I remember
After that hard slap in the face
I was lying there thinkin'
As she turned and walked away...Merciless

[Chorus: Out]
4. Had Enough (4:57)
Ain't like any other day
Finally comes a time to decide
I won't spend another day
Stuck here in the same old bind

I can see myself as much too strong
To let this thing go on so long
It ain't a case of right or wrong
I'll put myself back up where I belong

[Chorus:]
Oh- Can't you see
I've had enough had enough
I've had enough

I don't forget too easily
You're the one who told me a lie
Now you know you're free to be
Anybody's lover but mine

I can see myself as much too young
It's not too late to stick to my guns
I'll take it right back to square one
When you turn around to look for me
I'll be gone

[Chorus:]
[Bridge:]
Why can't you see what you've done to me
I'm not too sure of it myself
The answer lies in a whole new beginning
The second time around
5. Blame It on My Youth (4:14)
I live my life, one after the other
Can't seem to shake trouble
ollows me where ever I go
My mama told me I was always in a hurry
You'd better slow down or you'll lose control

I've loved and lost for the moment
It never lasted long enough
You come to me when something gets broken
But I won't let it get me down

[Chorus:]
Blame it on my youth
Put it to the circumstances
Blame it on my youth
I can't be judged for my actions
I'm an accident waiting to happen
Blame it on my youth

Someday I might stop being a child
But for now it looks as though
I'm havin' too much fun
You're as young as you feel
From the inside
Inside and out you're always on the run

Angel's with dirty faces
A little lost and innocent
Time steals people and places
But I won't let it get me down

[Repeat Chorus]
[Terror-Guitar Solo]

I've loved and lost for the moment
It never lasted long enough
You come to me when
Something gets broken
But I won't let it get me, baby.

[Repeat Chorus]
6. Take a Walk (3:57)
Equal Opportunity knocked
Twice too late to stay on top of it all
All for one, one for all.
Push me, pull me, way too far
One way or another someone's gotta take
The fall, you better look at yourself

When you put your foot down baby
You stomped down on me
You made your last point baby
It's all I can take

[Chorus:]
Take a walk -
Take a long and lonely walk
You better think about it
Come back to a whole new start
Cause-I wash my hands
Of you and your plans to take over
Take a walk

A lover's crime and punishment
Is do this, do that and put your eyes
Back in your head
Let's play house instead
You complain about everything
You're not happy 'til the chain's
Wrapped 'round my leg
It's about time for a change

When you put your foot down baby
You stomped down on me
Too much is enough now, baby
It's all I can take, so!

[Chorus:]
7. Big Love (4:49)
I swear by love
You got it
All and much more
Than one could ever hope for
'Cause I would take a number
Just to wait in line, for a look
And to gimme the high sign

[B-Section:]
Red lights green lights
Go for the gold
Something inside, I want you now
I want it all, and more than you know

[Chorus:]
My mind is twisted, tied up in knots
My heart is achin' from a shot in the dark
I got a feeling what this is all about
I think it's time for the ...big love
I'm gettin' ready for the big love

Everytime I think about you
I get a lump in my throat
From the big beat in my heart
I am helpless, hungry for attention
I know... you could see me fall apart

[B-Section:]
[Chorus:]

[Bridge:]
Ready, willing and able, give me
The chance to show you-I want it all
More than you know
8. How Can You Do What You Do (3:58)
You can knock me out
I've been down for the ten-count before
Better give it up
Don't have to show me I've had enough

[1st B-Section:]
I've seen the way you've been
Stealin' with those eyes.
You're high-heeled trouble
You're dangerous
With a criminal mind

[Chorus:]
How can you do what you do
What you've done to me
Take the pain and the pleasure
Turn it around on me
How can you do what you do
Is what I don't believe

Break down the walls
Live and learn from a hurricane
You just can't come and go
Another hit on the hurt parade

[2nd B-Section:]
You think I love it when you're
Tearin' me apart
Don't you see, you're playin' games
With my heart

[Chorus:]
How can you do what you do
What you've done to me
Take the pain and the pleasure
Turn it around on me
How can you do what you do
Is what I don't believe

[Bridge:]
What went wrong
Who's to blame
Tell me now
You're never gonna change

[Lead Solo]

[1st B-Section:]
I've seen the way you've been
Stealin' with those eyes
You're high-heeled trouble
You're dangerous with a criminal mind
9. Anything for You (4:37)
You have me burnin' up
With your bad timing
One small moment
I'm lost in your love

I'm lost and innocent
Turn my head around
Your one liners
I can do without

[B-Section:]
Easy come, easy go
I can't back down baby
I should have let you know that

[Chorus:]
I would do anything for you
Anything for you
If I only had you by my side
I would do anything for you
Anything for you
So wave goodbye
Anything for you

One day comes
And I dissappear
You'll get your independance
Free and clear

Ah, you got it in you
A chance to make it work
Your heart will keep on beating
And I'll still hurt
10. Rock & Roll Over (3:50)
When the honeymoon's over
Where do we go from here
What do we do when we get there
Who's at the other end

[B-Section:]
Yeah, one minute after midnight
When it's all been said and done
Is that the way it is in real life
Time marches on
After the shock

[Chorus:]
We Rock and Roll over, over & then
Show your true colors
Put on a new face
Love is like a faucet
Turnin' off and on
Rock and Roll over
Will the real you stand up

Same time next year
Life is full of chances
Is this the Lady or the Tiger
There's never any answers

[B-Sections:]
Ooh, one minute after midnight
When it's all been said and done
Is that the way it is in real life
Time marches
After the shock

[Chorus:]

[Solo]

[Bridge:]
Love and Hate is a fine, fine line
But if you're the cure, now, baby, I'll make the time

[B-Section:]
[Chorus out:]
11. 30 Days in the Hole (4:13)
All right, all right, all right
She called up an old friend
Talkin' bout Black Lebanese
A dirty room and a silver Coke spoon
Give me my release... come on

Black Napolese
It got ya weak in your knees
They're gonna seize some dust
That you got bust on
You know it's hard to believe

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole...ahwoo
30 days in the hole
(That's what they give me)
30 days in the hole

New Castle Brown
I'm tellin' ya can sure smack you down
Ya take a greasy whore in a rolling dance floor
Got your head spinnin' round

If ya live on the road
Well, there's a new highway code
Ya take the urban noise
And some terrible poison
Gonna lessen your load

[Chorus/Breakdown/2nd verse/3rd verse repeat]
