Wheels of Steel Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Motorcycle Man (4:00)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

If you see me flashing by
Do not stop me, do not try
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
I get my kicks just when I can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man

I can beat your street machine
We're taking risks, that's what we mean
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
We get our kicks just when we can
When we can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle...

If you see me riding by
Do not stop me, do not try
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
I get my kicks just when I can
When I can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man
Motorcycle, motorcycle
Motorcycle man

I can beat your street machine
I'm taking risks, that's what I mean
'Cause I'm a motorcycle man
We get our kicks just when we can
When we can

Motorcycle man
Motorcycle man
Motorcycle, motorcycle
Motorcycle man
2. Stand Up and Be Counted (3:10)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

Down, down at the bottom
Ya gotta try to get yourselves up
Ya got nothing to lose when your there
There at the bottom
Ya gotta stand up
Stand up for your rights

We can make it
You can break it
Stand up
Stand up be counted

Out, out in the spotlight
Ya gotta leave, leave your worries behind
Ya got nothing to lose when your there
You be forgotten
Well I'll be damning out lives
While the damn us in hell

We can make it
You can break it
Stand up
Stand up be counted

We can make it
We can break it
Stand up
Stand up be counted

Down, down at the bottom
Ya gotta leave all your worries behind
Ya got nothing to lose when you're there
There at the bottom
Ya gotta stand up
Stand up for your rights

We can make it
You can break it
Stand up
Stand up be counted

Stand up, stand up!
3. 747 (Strangers in the Night) (4:59)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

We got a 747 coming down in the night There's a 747 goin' into the night
There's no power, there's no runway lights There's no power they don't know why
Radio operator try to get a message through They've no fuel they gotta land soon
Tell the flight deck New York has no lights They can't land by the light of the moon
There's no power, what do we do They're overshooting there's no guiding lights
A 747 coming down in the night Set a course into the night
Try to get a message through Scandinavian 101
For Gods sake get your ground lights on
We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights We were strangers in the night
Strangers in the night Lost on separate flights
Going nowhere Strangers in the night
We were strangers in the night Going nowhere
Both on separate flights We were strangers in the night
Strangers in the night Lost on separate flights
Going nowhere Strangers in the night
Going nowhere
This is Scandinavian 101
Flight from Hawaii coming out of the sun Strangers in the night
Kennedy, you should be in sight We were strangers in the night
We can't see a thing here in the night Strangers in the night
Navigator says we're on the flight path We were strangers in the night
There's no radio, no sign of life Strangers in the night
This is Scandinavian 101 Both on separate flights
For Gods sake get the ground lights on Strangers in the night
Going nowhere
'Cause we were strangers in the night We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights Flight 101
Strangers in the night Strangers in the night going nowhere
Going nowhere
We were strangers in the night
Both on separate flights
Strangers in the night
Going nowhere
4. Wheels of Steel (5:58)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

Oww

When my foots on the throttle there's no looking back
I leave the motor tickin' over when she's back on the track
I've got a 68 Chevy with pipes on the side
You know she's my idea of beauty, that's what I drive

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Talking 'bout my wheels of steel

I don't take no jibe from the motorway pigs
When I'm crusin' down the freeway I don't get no lifts
If you see me coming get out of my way
You know a Trans Am didn't, I blew it away

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my my wheels of steel

I'm burnin' aviation fuel my foot's to the floor
Ya know she's crusin one-forty she'd do even more
I'm burnin' solid rubber I don't take no bull
'Cause my wheels of steel are rolling
They're rolling your way

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Talking 'bout my wheels of steel

Look out, uh

I'm burnin' aviation fuel my foot's to the floor
Ya know she's crusin' one- forty she'd do even more
I'm burnin' solid rubber I don't take no bull (shit)
'Cause my wheels of steel are rolling
If you're comin' come quick

She's got wheels, wheels of steel
She's got wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel

Talking 'bout my wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
Wheels of steel
My my wheels of steel

Uh, ya, wheels of steel
[Repeat to end]
5. Freeway Mad (2:42)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

I'm screaming down the freeway
Gonna try and burn you out
I'm keeping in the fast lane
Top me and I'll take you out

And I know, yes I know
I want it so bad
I'm freeway mad

I'm burning down the freeway
Doing ninety miles an hour
I'm faster than a speedboat
Pulling every inch of power.

And I know, yes I know
I want it so bad
I'm freeway mad

I'm going down the freeway
Never gonna get me out
Steaming like a freight train
Gonna blow my pistons out

And I know, yes I know
I want it so bad
I need it so bad
I want it so bad
Fu-fu-fu-fucking freeway mad
6. See the Light Shining (4:55)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

When you're dyin', when you're dyin'
There ain't no use in cryin'
I'm gonna keep on livin' till the light
Shines down on you
Burnin' right in
Ya can't stop when you're winning
I'm gonna show my hand make history

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

I'm dyin', I'm dyin'
There ain't no use in tryin'
I'm gonna keep on livin' till the light's
Shining down on you
Burnin' right in
Ya can't stop when you're winning
I'm gonna show my head make history

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

I can see the light shining
It's shining down on me, yeah
I can see the light shining
It shines on you and me, yeah, you and me
There's a new day dawning
It's here to set me free, yeah
I can see the changes coming
It's coming over me, over me

I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
Shine on, shine on
7. Street Fighting Gang (3:13)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

When I went to school
I was nobody's fool
No good for me
I was living carefree
Staying out all night
Learning to fight
I got the dirty
I was tough, I was mean

It was up to me
Stree-stree-stree-street fighting gang

I don't need no spelling
I take my winning when I'm ready
But you wouldn't be alike
When we learn to fight
When we start to roam
Then you'd better stay home
'Cause I'm a member of the street elite
You know it's trouble to all we meet

It was up to me
Fighting through the night
Doing alright
We might take your life
Street fighting gang
Street fighting gang

If I take you out one night
And you're risking your life
If I show you the blade
You got a fool in your brain
'Cause I don't give a damn, no
'Cause I don't know you
I'm a member of the street elite
You know it's trouble to all we meet

It was up to me
Street fighting gang
Street fighting gang

I'm in a street fighting gang
Street fighting gang
I'm in a gang
The gang
8. Suzie Hold On (4:34)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

I wish I had a fortune
I'd take the pain away
We could be together
That's how we need to stay
'Cause you can change the world
The world in which you live in, live in
Suzie hold on

Do everything you believe to be right
Doing it all the time
Fighting the fight you believe to be right
Doing it all the time

When we were far apart
No one could be closer
Please don't take your life
'Cause that would break my heart
Try to stop your crying
We both know you're dying, dying
Suzie hold on

Do everything you believe to be right
Doing it all the time
Fighting the fight you believe to be right
Doing it all the time

I wish I had a fortune
I'd take your pain away
We could be together
That's how we need to stay
'Cause you can change the world
The world in which we live in, live in
Suzie hold on

Don't you know that you can change the world
Don't you know that you can change the world
Change the world, you can change the world
Suzie you can change the world

I can't stop you crying
Even though you're dying
9. Machine Gun (5:23)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Gill]

Move in to the front underhanded fire
Hear the bullets flying millions every hour
Tracers in the night shooting across the sky
For God's sake cover me I don't wanna die

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Over the top into the wire
Running like a madman into the fire
No-mans land, fighting for your life
Fighting hand to hand forced to use your knife

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Come the wheels of terror crushing all before
Chews you to the bone to hear the monsters roar
With the clash of iron the battles never won
For the forgotten soldier it's only just begun

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
It's gonna shoot you down

Move in to the front underhanded fire
Hear the bullets flying millions every hour
Tracers in the night shooting across the sky
For God's sake cover me I don't wanna die

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun

Come the wheels of terror crushing all before
Chews you to the bone to hear the monsters roar
With the clash of iron the battles never won
For the forgotten soldier it's only just begun

Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Machine gun
Gonna shoot you down
