1. Staying Power (4:10)
Let me show it to you yeah

See what I got - I got a hell of a lot
Tell me what you feel
Is it real is it real?
You know I got what it takes
And I can take a lot
Did you hear the last call baby?

You and me got staying power yeah!
You and me we got staying power
Staying power (I got it I got it)

I wonder when we're gonna make it
I wonder when we're gonna shake it
Rock me baby rock me
C'mon you can shock me
Let's catch on to the groove
Make it move make it move
You know how to shake that thing
We'll work it work it work it
You and I can play ball baby

You and me got staying power yeah
You and me we got staying power

I wonder when we're gonna make it
I wonder when we're gonna shake it
Fire down below I'm just a regular dynamo
Want some smooth company
Don't lose control just hang on out with me
Got to get to know each other
But we got plenty of time
Did you hear the last call baby?

You and me got staying power yeah
You and me we got staying power

Power power power...

I wonder when we're gonna stick it
I wonder when we're gonna trick it
Blow baby blow let's get down and go go
Get yourself in the mood
Got to give a little bit of attitude
Baby don't you crash
Let just trash trash trash
Did you hear the last call baby?

You and me got staying power yeah
You and me we got staying power

(I like it) Staying power
Yeah yeah
Gotcha
2. Dancer (3:46)
I'm not invited to the party
Been sitting here all night
I'm all alone here at the party
Ain't got no black coat
Ain't got no tie
I gotta shape up now
You gotto know why
Dancer, Dancer
I can't live with it I'm gonna die without it
Dancer, Dancer
Ain't no doubt about it
Dancer, Dancer
Why don't you kick off your dancing shoes
And come along with me
You're the life and soul of the funk-tion
It took me all night
To get hold of the right introduction
Blew me out of sight
I taste your lipstick
I look in your eyes
You feel fantastic
My body cries
Hot Space!
Dancer, Dancer

I can't believe your dancing
Can't take you home, can't take your dancing
Dancer, Dancer, dance the night away
3. Back Chat (4:31)

Fat chance I have of making a romance
If I'm ever to get the last word in

5. Action This Day (3:32)
Action
This street honey is a mean street
Living in this street honey needs a mean streak
We've got criminals living in this street
But there's a heart beat pulse
That keeps on pumping
Like a juke box playing the same dead record
Or a radio in the corner keeps blaring
I got a feeling this world is using me

This town honey is a dead town
Living in this town honey is a let down
Coming to this town honey is a show down
But there's a heart beat pulse
That keeps on pumping some sunshine ray
Through a crack in the shutter
Or a sight of a light at the end of a tunnel
Still there's a feeling this world is using me

Action this day action this night
Oh we've gotta learn to love to live
You can't say it ain't right
Action this day action this night
Oh you've got the power you've got the power
You've got the power to love to live
You can't say it ain't right

Your mind honey is a bleak place
Living in your minds living in a blank space
Your mind is coming from a rat race
But there's a heart beat pulse
That keeps on pumping
Like a juke box playing the same dead record
Or a radio in the corner keeps blaring
I got a feeling that just won't quit
This world is using me

Action this day action this night
Oh we've gotta learn to love to live
We can't say it ain't right
Action this day action this night
Oh you've got the power you've got the power
You've got the power to love to live
You can't say it ain't right

Action action this day
Action this day
Action action this day
Action this day
Living in the street...
Action...
6. Put Out the Fire (3:18)
They called him a hero
In the land of the free
But he wouldn't shake my hand boy
He disappointed me
So I got my handgun
And I blew him away
That critter was a bad guy
I had to make him pay
You might fear for my reason
I don't care what they say
Look out baby it's the season
For the mad masquerade
Put out the fire
You need a bullet like a hole in the head
Put out the fire
Don't believe what your grandaddy said
She was my lover
It was a shame that she died
But the constitution's right on my side
Cos I caught my lover in my neighbour's bed
I got retribution, filled 'em full of lead

I've been told it's the fashion
To let me on the streets again
It's nothing but a crime of passion
And I'm not to blame
Put out the fire
And let yor sons and your daughters
Sleep sound in their beds
You know a gun never killed nobody
You can ask anyone
People get shot by people
People with guns
Put out the fire
You need a gun like a hole in the head
Out out the fire
Just tell me that old fashioned gun law is dead
7. Life Is Real (Song for Lennon) (3:28)
Guilt stains on my pillow
Blood on my terraces
Torsos in my closet
Shadows from my past
Life is real life is real
Life is real so real

Sleeping is my leisure
Waking up in a minefield
Dream in just a pleasure dome
Love is a roulette wheel
Life is real life is real
Life is real oh yeah

Success is my breathing space
I brought it on myself
I will price it I will cash it
I can take it or leave it
Loneliness is my hiding place
Breast feeding myself
What more can I say?
I have swallowed the bitter pill
I can taste it I can taste it
Life is real life is real
Life is real

Music will be my mistress
Loving like a whore
Lennon is a genius
Living in ev'ry pore
Life is real life is real
Life is real so real
Life is cruel life is a bitch
Life is real so real
Life is real life is real yeah
Life is real
8. Calling All Girls (3:50)
Calling all boys calling all girls
Calling all people on streets
Around the world
Take this message a message for you
This message is old yeah
This message is true this message is
This message is this message is this message is

Love take a message of love
Far and near
Take a message of love for all to hear
For all to hear

Some sleepless nights in wait for you
Some foreign presence you feel
Comes seeping through
Some stream of hope
The whole world through
Spread like some silent disease
You'll get yours too
This message is this message is
This message is this message is

Love take a message of love
Far and near
Take a message of love for all to hear
For all to hear

Love take a message of love
Far and near
Take a message of love for all to hear
For all to hear

Calling all boys calling all girls
Calling all boys calling all girls
Calling all girls
9. Las Palabras de Amor (The Words of Love) (4:26)
Don't touch me now
Don't hold me now
Don't break the spell darling, now you are
near
Look in my eyes
And speak to me
The special promises I want to hear
Las palabras de amor
Let me hear the words of love
Despacito mi amor
Love me slow and gently
One foolish world, so many souls
Senselessly hurled through the never ending cold
And all for fear, and all for greed
Speak any tongue but for God's sake we need
Las palabras de amor
Let me hear the words of love
Despacito mi amor
Let me know, this night and evermore
This room is bare
This night is cold

We're apart and I'm growing old
But while we live, we'll meet again
So then my love we may whisper once more
It's you I adore
Las palabras de amor
Let me hear the words of love
Despacito mi amor
Touch me now
Las palabras de amor
Let us share the words of love
For evermore
For evermore
10. Cool Cat (3:26)
Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah!
You're taking all the sunshine away
Making out like you're the main line (I knew that)
'Cause you're a cool cat
Tapping on the toe with a new hat
Ooh just cruising
Driving along like the swing king
Feeling the beat of my heart huh!
Feeling the beat of my heart

Ooh you're a cool cat
Coming on strong with all the chit chat
Ooh you're alright
Hanging out and stealing all the limelight
Ooh messing with the beat of my heart yeah!

Ooh you used to be a mean kid
Ooh making such a deal of life
Ooh you were wishing and hoping and waiting
To really hit the big time
But did it happen? happen no!
You're speeding to fast slow down
Slow down you'd better slow down slow down

You really know how to set the mood
And you really get inside the groove
Cool cat tapping on the toe with a new hat
Ooh just cruising
Driving along like the swing king
Feeling the beat of my heart
Feeling the beat of my heart yeah!
Feeling the beat of my heart
Can you feel it?
Feeling the beat of my heart
Feeling the beat of my heart
Ooh feeling feeling feeling
Feeling ev'ry feeling
11. Under Pressure (4:02)
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah

That's o-kay!
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out!
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people
People on streets

Do do do bah bah bah bah
O-kay
Chippin' around
Kick my brains round the floor
These are the days
It never rains but it pours
People on streets
People on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out!
Pray tomorrow takes me higher higher higher
Pressure on people
People on streets
Turned away from it all
Like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why why why?
Love love love love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love?
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure pressure
