1. For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) (5:43)
Oh Yeah, yeah
We're roll tonight
To the guitar bite
Yeah, yeah, oh

Stand up and be counted
For what you are about to receive
We are the dealers
We'll give you everything you need
Hail hail to the good times
'Cause rock has got the right of way
We ain't no legend, ain't no cause
We're just livin' for today

For those about to rock, we salute you
For those about to rock, we salute you

We rock at dawn on the front line
Like a bolt right out of the blue
The sky's alight with the guitar bite
Heads will roll and rock tonight

For those about to rock, we salute you
For those about to rock, we salute you
For those about to rock, we salute you
Yes we do
For those about to rock, we salute you
Oooh, salute!
Oooh, ooooh yeah

We're just a battery for hire with a guitar fire
Ready and aimed at you
Pick up your balls and load up your cannon
For a twenty-one gun salute

For those about to rock - fire
We salute you
For those about to rock, we salute you
Those about to rock - fire
We salute you
Fire
We salute you
We salute you

Come on, whooa
For those about to rock, we salute you (x4)
Shoot, shoot (x2)
For those who give
For those who take
For those left high
And those on the make
We salute you
Yeah
(Ain't gonna get tired, won't take a break, we salute you.)
We salute you (x3)
Fire
2. I Put the Finger on You (3:25)
I put the finger on you
My hands all out of control
I can't stop it getting down on you
It's moving on it's own accord
Yes, I've got fire in my finger tips
Radiating onto you
I can't control it, can't even hold it
It's knocking on your door
And you know what it's for
CHORUS:
I put the finger right on you
I put the finger right on you
You put your finger on me too
Then I put the finger, I put the finger
Yeah I put the finger, I put the finger
I put the finger on you for sure
It's the key to unlocking your door, don't you know
I've broken through your security
My hands ain't tied no more, you better watch out
I can't control it, can't even hold it
Speaking up for pleasure
You can feel it on your ankle
Feel it on your knee
Feel it on your thigh
Can you feel me?
CHORUS
I can't control it, can't even hold it
Sneaking up on your front door
You can feel it on your ankle
Feel it on your knee
Feel it on your thigh
Can you feel me?
Put it - right on you
I'll do it if you want me to
Can I put it?
I put the finger on you
I hit the spot
3. Let's Get It Up (3:53)
Loose lips sink ships
So come aboard for a pleasure trip
It's high tide so let's ride
The moon is risin' and so am I
I'm gonna get it up
Never gonna let it up
Cruisin' on the seven seas
A pirate of my lovin' needs
I'll never go down
Never go down
So let's get it up
Let's get it up, get it right on
Let's get it up, right to the top
Let's get it up, right now

Loose wires cause fires
Gettin' tangled in my desires, so
Screw 'em up and plug 'em in
Then switch it on and start all over again
I'm gonna get it up
Never gonna let it up, no
Tickin' like a time bomb, oh yeah
Blowin' out the fuse box
I'll never go down
Never go down, so
Let's get it up, let's get it up, get it up
Let's get it up, right up to the top
Let's get it up, right now
Get it up, c'mon ang

Let's get it up, c'mon let's get it up
Let's get it up, switch it on start it
Let's get it up,
Let's get it up, let's get it up
Let's get it up, let's get it up
Get it up, get it up, get it up
Right up
4. Inject the Venom (3:30)
No mercy for the bad if they want it
No mercy for the bad if they plead
No mercy for the bad if they need it
No mercy from me
Tell no truth and tell no lies
Cross your heart and hope to die
Never give what you can't take back
Scratch like a cat
Inject your venom
It'll be your last attack
No mercy for the bad if they want it
No mercy for the bad if they plead
No mercy for the bad if they need it
V-E-N-O-M
Got no heart, no - feel no pain
Take your soul and - leave a stain
Come choose your victim
Take him by surprise
Go in hard and get him
Right between the eyes and -
CHORUS:
Inject the venom
Inject the venom
Inject the venom
Inject it all
(Stick it in, stick it)
CHORUS
5. Snowballed (3:23)
Crashed out of the market, out on the floor
Washed up on the shore
Bombed out of the City, out of the door
Thrown up against the wall
Put out of the picture, axe about to fall
Walk before you crawl
Dragged down to the bottom, screaming for air
The shark must get his share
You can see it coming, miles and miles away
Women, drink and money are going to make you pay
Snowballed, oh yeah
Snowballed, they've done it again
Snowballed, makin' me pay
Snowballed
Howl of the wolf, snow in his eyes
Waiting to take you by surprise
Eye of the needle, head of the fight
Watch those teeth 'cause they're ready to bite
You can see it coming, miles and miles away
Women, drink and money are going to make you pay
Snowballed, yes you have
Snowballed, I've been fooled again
Snowballed, that's all
Snowballed
Out of my mind
One more time
6. Evil Walks (4:23)
Black shadow hangin' over your shoulder
Black mark up against your name
Your green eyes couldn't get any colder
There's bad poison runnin' through your veins
CHORUS:
Evil walks behind you
Evil sleeps beside you
Evil talks arouse you
Evil walks behind you
Black widow weavin' evil notions
Dark secrets bein' spun in your web
Good men goin' down in your ocean
They can't swim 'cause they're tied to your bed
CHORUS

You just cry wolf
I sometimes wonder where you park your broom
Oh black widow
C'mon weave your web
Down in your ocean
You got 'em tied to your bed
With your dark, dark secrets
And your green, green eyes
You black widow
CHORUS
Evil walks so bad
7. C.O.D. (3:19)
Call of a dog, cry of a bitch
Cream of a dream is the cause of the itch
Call of the doctor, cash on demand
If you get enough rope, might even hang
CHORUS:
C.O.D. - care of the devil
C.O.D. - the devil in me
C.O.D. - care of the devil
Care of the devil in me
The curse of love is the cause of the pain
The crime of the day is when you do it again
Call of the doctor, cash on demand
If you give them a finger, they'll take off your hand
CHORUS
(Down to the devil with me)
Call of a dog, cry of a bitch
The sign of the sinner is the size of his itch
CHORUS
I'm paying, paying, I'm paying C.O.D.
Care of the devil, care of the devil in me
It's the curse of love
8. Breaking the Rules (4:23)
Black sheep and a renegade
Hot feet in the cool of the shade
Street shuffle and a tough childhoods
Examinations done no good
Crow bars and a hot wired cars
Sneak thieves and cheap cigars
No rebellion, not today
I get my kicks in my own way
Right, OK
Just keep on breaking the rules
Come on, get ready to rule
Tough breaks in the neighbourhood
A hard case who's up to no good
Living like trash, a society rash
Ready to break, and ready to dash
A bad deal and a real rough ride
You're doing time on the other side
No rebellion, not today
I get my kicks in my own way
Right, OK
Just keep on breaking the rules
Come on, get ready to rule
(Tough breaks)
They got regulation ties
Regulation shoes
Those regulation fools
With their regulation rules
Just keep on breaking the rules
Come on, get ready to rule
Oh take off your ties and your regulation shoes
You're nothing but a bunch of regulation fools
And you got your regulation rules
I'm going to do things my own way
Every day and every way
9. Night of the Long Knives (3:25)
Who's your leader, who's your man?
Who will help you fill your hand?
Who's your friend and who's your foe?
Who's your Judas, you don't know?
Night of the long knives
Where's that saviour, where's that light
When you're praying for your life?
Who's that fighting back to back?
Who's defending whose attack?
Night of the long knives
(Stick 'em in the back woods)
Night of the long knives
10. Spellbound (4:30)
Blinded by a bright beam, shattered by the windscreen
Stunned by the whiplash, I'm a victim of a bad crash
I can do nothing right, I never sleep at night, can't even start a fight
My feet have left the ground, spinning round and round
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down
Beaten by a blind man, wrong way up a dead end
Screaming through a speed trap as I tear into a tail back ... you know
I can do nothing right, no I, I never sleep at night
And I can't even start a fight
My feet have left the ground, spinning round and round
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down
It keeps on tumbling down
I'm slipping down, I got my hands in the fire
I'm sliding on an oil slick, blinded on a bad trip
Yes and nothing's going to change it
No I can do nothing right, can't even sleep at night
My feet have left the ground, I'm spinning round and round
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down ... down, down
Spellbound ... My world keeps a tumbling down ... down
Spellbound ... My world .. Keeps a tumbling ... Down
