One Vice At a Time Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Long Stick Goes Boom (5:12)
Y'all know about sixty-nine
Burnin' bones and bedside time
Once again we meet tonight
Get that touch of a magical night

We're gonna hit it
We're gonna kick it
We're gonna break through the ice
You give us fever
You give us sweat
You're gonna make us live it twice
Tonight long stick goes boom!
Tonight long stick goes boom!

The time is right for a ride tonight
To be with you I'd risk a fight
My stick is tight my blood is hot
Let's do it right here on the spot

We're gonna hit it
We're gonna kick it
We're gonna break through the ice
You give us fever
You give us sweat
You're gonna make us live it twice
Tonight long stick goes boom!
Tonight long stick goes boom!
2. Bab Boys, Rag Dolls (3:48)
Just got outta high school, actin' like a jerk
Ain't got no money, ain't got no work
Scratchin' 'round for beaver
Scratchin' 'round for bread
No friends, no convictions
Man, it's like you're dead

Bad boys - rag dolls
Ain't gonna let you down
Sex machines and rock 'n' roll queens
Turn the spotlight on

Pick up a guitar, kick out a sound
The music is hard and the music is loud
Got one helluva band, one helluva show
That's one thing you all should know

Bad boys - rag dolls
Ain't gonna let you down
Sex machines and rock 'n' roll queens
Turn my body on
3. Playin' the Outlaw (3:59)
Oh! Alright!
Come on now . . .
Get a life
Get a life! (gather up?)
Flat on my back in a hotel bar
With the sound of a jukebox in my head
Wonderin' how I came so far
Truth be known, I should've been dead, yeah
Cruisin' around in a beat up car
High noon comes in a four door saloon
Spending the night with a ten dollar whore
Private hell in a padded room
Playin' the outlaw
Takin' the back door
Playin' the outlaw!
Listen kids to the story so far
Never get caught with a five ace hand
Don't shoot the man with the iron star
You can bet the hangman won't understand
The judge's wife don't ever cheat
Got a tireless body, ya kinda learn to love
Can't stand the lovin', can't stand the heat
Life's for livin' and that's for sure
Playin' the outlaw
Takin' the back door
Playin' the outlaw!

[Guitar Solo]

Playin' the outlaw
Takin' the back door
Playin' the outlaw
Playin' the outlaw!
Brother, around (?)
4. To the Top (4:21)
5. Down the Drain (3:15)
My mother was a b-girl
My old man was a tramp
Some folks say they conceived me
On a landing ramp
I was only fourteen
Took to petty crime
Stole from supermarkets
With this girlfriend of mine
Now I'm nearly twenty
Sick in heart and brain
Haven't got the courage
My life is down the drain
No roots, no home, no country
No hope, no faith, no luck
If there's a God in heaven
He doesn't give me bucks
No self-respect, no honor
No family, no cash
No church and no religion
I'm only human trash
Now I'm nearly twenty
Sick in heart and brain
Haven't got the courage
My life is down the drain
6. American Woman (3:37)
American Woman, stay away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don't come a hangin' around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you
Now Woman, I said stay away
American Woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay

American Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don't come a knockin' around my door
Don't wanna see your shadow no more
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now Woman, I said get away
American Woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay

American Woman, said get away
American Woman, listen what I say
Don't come a hangin' around my door
Don't wanna see your face no more
I don't need your war machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away now go, go, go
I 'm gonna leave you woman
Gonna leave you woman
Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye
You 're no good for me
I 'm no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye
Tell you what I 'm gonna do
You know I 'm gonna leave
You know I 'm gonna go
You know I 'm gonna leave
You know I 'm gonna go-o, woman
I 'm gonna leave you woman
Goodbye American Woman
Goodbye American chick
7. I'm on the Run (3:43)
Standing at the station
Waitin' for the train
No money for a B.L.T.
Can't afford the plane
Sat me down in a smoker
Rolled me up a jay
Time is up, runnin' hot
This boy is on his way

I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Loaded like a gun
I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Silver bullet to the sun

Meet a million people
Tell me what to do
All the slimy leaches...yuk!
Make me feel so blue
But the booze in the bus
Hot legs round the neck
State to state coast to coast
Hey guys! I'll be back...

I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Loaded like a gun
I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Silver bullet to the sun

[Guitar Solo]

I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Loaded like a gun
I'm on the run, I'm on the run
Silver bullet to the sun
8. Save Me (4:27)
9. Rock'n'roll (4:07)
I wanna kiss my baby in a Cadillac
Drivin' by a chauffeur, sittin' in the back
Johnny you can drive us anywhere
Cause I need time before arrivin' there

Drivin' through the city to the concert hall
Headin' for the sound, I hear some rock 'n' roll
I told the driver, come on let's go through the door
I wanna do it to the music but I need some more

[Chorus:]

Hey now, backseat rock 'n' roll
Hey now, do it with your soul
Hey now, backseat rock 'n' roll
Hey now, do it with your soul

Drivin' through the hall, straight ahead to the stage
The music's growin' high upon our lover's cage
She's rockin' me and I'm rollin' her
People peepin' through the windows, I don't care

[Chorus]

With your soul
