Powerage Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Rock 'N' Roll Damnation (3:37)
They say that you play too loud,
Well, baby, that's tough!
They say that you got to much,
Can't get enough!
They tell you that you look the fool,
And, baby, I'm a fool for you!
They say that your mind's diseased,
Shake your stuff!

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation!
Ma's own whippin' boy!
Rock 'n' roll damnation!
Take a chance while you still got the choice!

You say that you want respect,
Honey, for what?
For everything that you've done for me,
Thanks a lot!
Get up off your bended knees,
You could set your mind at ease!
My temperature's runnin' hot,
And I've been waitin' all night for a bite o' what you got!

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation!
Ma's own whippin' boy!
Rock 'n' roll damnation!
Take a chance while you still got the choice!

(Damnation!) They're puttin' you down,
(Damnation!) All over town!
(Damnation!) 'Cause you're way outta reach,
Livin' on the streets, you gotta practice what you preach!

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation!
Ma's own whippin' boy!
Rock 'n' roll damnation!
Take a chance while you still got the choice!

SOLO

(Damnation!) Left a happy home,
(Damnation!) Just to live on your own!
(Damnation!) You wanna live in sin,
(Damnation!) It's a rock 'n' roll -
Damnation! Just a bundle of joy,
(Damnation!) You're a toy for a boy!
(Damnation!) You got dollars in your eye,
(Damnation!) Chasin' that pie in the sky!
(Damnation!) Rock 'n' roll -
Damnation!
2. Down Payment Blues (6:03)
I know that it's evil
I know that it's got to be
I know I ain't doing much
Doing nothing means a lot to me
Living on a shoe string
A fifty cent millionaire
Open to charity
Rock 'n' roller welfare
Sitting in my Cadillac
Listening to my radio
Suzy baby get on in
Tell me where she want to go
I'm living in a nightmare
She's looking like a wet dream
I got myself a Cadillac
But I can't afford the gasoline

CHORUS:
I've got holes in my shoes
And I'm way overdue
Down payment blues
Get myself a steady job
Some responsibility
Can't even feed my cat
On social security
Hiding from the rent man
Oh it makes me want to cry
Sheriff knocking on my door
Ain't it funny how the time flies
Sitting on my sailing boat
Sipping off my champaign
Suzy baby all at sea [Suzy baby you're obscene]
Say she want to come again
Feeling like a paper cup
[Floating | Blowing] down a storm drain
Got myself a sailing boat
But I can't afford the gasoline [...afford a drop of rain]
But I can't afford to gather way [gather way - navigation - To attain headway. ]

CHORUS
3. Gimme a Bullet (3:21)
She had the word
Had the way
The way of letting me know
She knew the game
Called the play
Oh she hit me low
She said now you go your way
And I'll go mine
And that's a start
Doctor doctor
Ain't no cure
For the pain in my heart

Chorus:
Gimme a bullet to bite on
Something to chew
Gimme a bullet to bite on
And I'll make believe
I'll make believe it's you

Don't need no drink
Don't need no drug
Don't need no sympathy
Sooner or later
Send me a bill
For what she's doin to me
I'll call right up
Long distance lips
On the telephone
Come tomorrow
Come to grips
With me all alone

Chorus

A bullet to bite on
Gimme a bullet to bite on
Cmon now
Yeah yeah bullet to bite
Bullet to chew
I'll make believe it's you
I'll make believe it's you
Gimme a bullet to bite on
You're a bullet baby
I wanna bullet to bite on
4. Riff Raff (5:11)
See it on the television every day
Hear it on the radio
It ain't humid but it sure is hot
Down in Mexico
The boy is trying to tell me
Near enough to the edge (beginning of the end)
Say they've all been there
Too late my friend

CHORUS:
Riff raff
Always good for a laugh (ha ha ha)
Riff raff
Go on, laugh yourself in half

(Smile awhile)

Now I'm the kind of guy who keeps his big mouth shut
Don't bother me
Somebody give me one arm up
Leave me in misery
I've never shot nobody
Don't even carry a gun
I ain't done nothing wrong
I'm just having fun

CHORUS
5. Sin City (4:45)
Diamonds and dust
Poor man last, rich man first
Lamborghini's, caviar
Dry martinis, Shangra-la
I got a burning feeling
Deep inside of me
It's a yearning
But, I'm gonna to set it free

I'm goin' in- to Sin City
I'm gonna win- in Sin City
Where the lights are bright
Through the town tonight
I'm gonna win in Sin City

Oh, I'm gonna roll you, baby
Snake eyes, wooo!

Ladders and snakes
Ladders give, snakes take
Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief
Ain't got a hope in hell, that's my belief

Fingers Finney, Diamond Jim
Ya' better get ready ready, look out, I'm comin' in
So, spin that wheel, cut that pack
And roll those loaded dice
Bring on the dancing girls
And put the champaign on ice

I'm goin' in - to Sin City
I'm gonna win- in Sin City
Where the lights are bright
Through the town tonight
I'm goin' in to Sin City
I'm gonna roll you baby.....
6. What's Next to the Moon (3:31)
Well I tied my baby to the railroad track
Cannonball down the line
Giving that woman just a one more chance
To give it to me one more time
Engineer wishing he was home in bed
Dreaming about Casey Jones
Wide-eyed woman heading a mile ahead [...woman half a mile ahead]
Thinking about broken bones

CHORUS:
It's her love that I want
It's her love that I need
It's her love got to have
It's her love

Heavenly body flying across the sky
Superman was out of town
Come on honey, gotta change your tune
Cause it's a long way down
Clark Kent looking for a free ride
Thinking about Lois Lane
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's - a suicide
And that'd be a shame

CHORUS

But what's next to the moon?
Long Arm looking for a fingerprint
Trying to find the mystery clue
Hitting me with the third degree
Working on a thumb screw
Alright, officer, I confess
Everything's coming back
I didn't mean to hurt that woman of mine
It was a heart attack

CHORUS

What's next to the moon?
7. Gone Shootin' (5:05)
Feel the pressure rise
Hear the whistle blow
Bought a ticket of her own accord
Yeah to I don't know
Packed her heart in her travelling bag
And never said bye bye
Something missing in the neighbourhood
All the cryin' eyes
I stirred my coffee with the same spoon
To her favourite tune
Gone shootin'
My baby's gone shootin'
Wrap herself around
Like a second skin
Backed her favourite nag
But she could never win
I took her number in another town
She took another pill
She was 'runnin' in' on overdrive
A victim of overkill
She never made it past the bedroom door
What was she aiming for?
Gone shootin'
She's gone, gone gone gone
(solo)

Gone shootin'
My baby's gone shootin'
Ow ! Lookout !
(Gone Shootin')
Aaah! my baby's gotta gun
(Gone Shootin)
hey look out, look out, look out, look out!
(Gone shootin)
Ahh She's shootin everyone!
(Gone shootin)
Ah She's sure is loaded
She's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
Gone shootin

I used to love her so
8. Up to My Neck in You (4:13)
Well I been up to my neck in trouble
Up to my neck in strife
Up to my neck in misery
For most of my life
I've been a fool
And you know what a fool can do
I'm telling you
You come along when I needed you
Now I'm up
I'm up to my neck in you

And I been up to my neck in pleasure
Up to my neck in pain
I been up to my neck on the railroad track
Waitin' for the train
To cruise on through
I figured my time was due
It's way over due
You come along and you pulled me through
Now I'm up
Up to my neck in you
Don't it feel good

I been up to my neck in whiskey
I been up to my neck in wine
I been up to my neck in wishin'
That this neck wasn't mine
I'm a loser
That ain't lost it
Baby you were to good
To good to be true
What you done no one else could do
Now I'm up
I'm up to my neck in you
It feels good
You come along when I needed you
I'm up to my neck in you
9. Kicked in the Teeth (4:03)
Two faced woman with the two faced lies
I hope your two faced living made you satisfied
Tell me baby I was your only one
While you've been running around town
with every mother's son

Told your story about the women like you
Told your story about the things you do
I used to think that you were sugar and spice
I should've listened to my mother's advice

CHORUS:
Kicked in the teeth again
Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
Kicked in the teeth again
Ain't this misery ever gonna end?
And I've been kicked in the teeth
Kicked in the teeth again

Two faced woman, such a crying shame
Don't know nothing, you're all the same
You run around, hope you had your fun
You never know who's gonna win till the race been run

CHORUS
