Back from the Dead Lyrics

(19)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You (2:42)
little girl, it's a great big world
but there's only one of me
you can't touch cause I cost too much but
tonight I'm gonna rock you
tonight I'm gonna rock you

tonight!

you're sweet but you're just four feet
and you still got your baby teeth
you're too young and I'm too well hung
tonight I'm gonna rock you
tonight I'm gonna rock you

tonight!

you're hot, you take all we got,
not a dry seat in the house
next day, we'll be on our way
tonight I'm gonna rock you
tonight I'm gonna rock you

tonight!

little girl, it's a great big world
but there's only one of...

me!
2. Back from the Dead (4:06)
we're back from the dead
climbing from the coffin
we don't come here often
or so it is said

we're back from the grave
recovered from our coma
more body than aroma
it's life that we crave

watch our hearts pump as we go back into action (go!)
giving satisfaction and getting some too
hear our blood roar as we roll a lucky seven
from hell or from heaven, we're past but we're due
(but we're due, but we're due, but we're due)

we're back from the dead
putting up resistance
clinging to existence
and ready for bed

we're out of the shroud
an end to the becalming
reversing the embalming
and back with our crowd

nothing's more fun than flipping off the reaper (no!)
we're back on our beeper heading straight for the top
it's not so hard to avoid a mid-death crisis
no coffee, no spices, but rock 'till you drop
('till you drop, 'till you drop, 'till you drop)

we're back and we're glad
nothing ever stops us
we're our own synopsis
and here to be had

we're back from the dead
and this time we're not stopping
we've brought some corn for popping
and we're banging your head

better off dead, still better off living (yeah!)
the gift keeps on giving and it's taking no more
no time like the past, no rhyme like the present
the first shall be last, and we're slamming death's door
('ming death's door, 'ming death's door, 'ming death's door)
3. (Funky) Sex Farm (4:30)
working on a sex farm
trying to raise some hard love
getting out my pitch fork
poking your hay

scratching in your hen house
sniffing at your feedbag
slipping out your back door
I'm leaving my spray

sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
I'm gonna mow you down
sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
I'll rake and hoe you down

sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
don't you see my sallow eyes?
I - I - I'm
working on a sex farm
hosing down your barn door
bothering you livestock
they know what I need

working up a hot sweat
crouching in your pea patch
plowing through your bean field
planting my seed

sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
I'll be your hired hand
sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
I'll let my offer stand
sex farm woman (sex farm woman)
don't you feel my tractor rumbling by
by - by - byyyy

working on a sex farm
wolfing down some corn bread
I'm turning on the TV
joining the grange
4. Rock 'n' Roll Creation (5:05)
when there was darkness and the void was king
and ruled the elements
when there was silence and the hush was almost deafening
out of the emptiness
salvation, rhythm and light and sound

'twas the rock & roll creation
'twas a terrible big bang
'twas the ultimate mutation
ying was searching for his yang
and he looked and he saw that it was good

when I'm alone beneath the stars and feeling insignificant,
I turn within to see the forces that created me

I look to the stars and the answer is clear
I look in the mirror and see what I fear

'tis the rock & roll creation
'tis the absolute rebirth
'tis the rolling of the ocean and the rocking of the earth
and I looked and I saw that it was good
5. Jazz Odyssey I (2:19)
instrumental
6. Gimme Some Money (2:34)
stop wasting my time
you know what I want
you know what I need
or maybe you don't
do I have to come right
flat out and tell you everything?

gimme some money!
gimme some money!

I'm nobody's fool
I'm nobody's clown
I'm treating you cool
I'm putting you down
but baby I don't intend to leave empty handed

gimme some money!
gimme some money!

don't get me wrong
try getting me right
your face is OK but your purse is too tight

I'm looking for pound notes
loose change
bad checks, anything

gimme some money, gimme some money, gimme some money
gimme some money, gimme some money, gimme some money
7. Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare (3:20)
I been a rocked since I don't know when
I been a roller since a way back then
oh yeah!
but late at night when the boogie's through
I go to bed same as you
oh yeah!

but when the rock & roll nightmare comes
the devil's gonna make me eat my drums

I try to fight it, but I just can't win
I chase it out, but it comes back in
again
it's like a weight pressing on my brain
if I were smart, I would go insane
oh yeah!

'cause when the rock & roll nightmare's here
I start to work 'bout my whole career

and when the rock & roll nightmare's gone
I jump about with my pajamas on!
8. Heavy Duty (4:57)
no light fantastic ever crosses my mind
that meditation stuff can make you go blind
just crank that volume to the point of pain
why waste good music on a brain

heavy! duty!
heavy duty, rock and roll
heavy! duty!
brings out the duty in my soul

I see you dancing there in front of the band
you're playin' the solos with no guitar in your hand
I don't pull no punches I wouldn't waste your time
and just cause it pays, that ain't no crime

heavy! duty!
heavy duty, rock and roll
heavy! duty!
brings out the duty in my soul

I don't need a woman, I won't take me no wife
I get the rock and roll and that'll be my life
no page in history baby - that, I don't need
I just want to make some eardrums bleed

heavy! duty!
heavy duty, rock and roll
heavy! duty!
brings out the duty in my soul
9. America (3:40)
we came like babies
from our home across the sea to see America
and the people opened up their arms
to welcome us, to America

we came like children
from a far and distant land to see America
and the golden sun of freedom
filtered down to us, in America

and the people stood and stared
loved us more than we had dared to, in America

super highways here and there
pretty womens everywhere
Billy kid and smokey bear

buildings reaching to the sky
afro-sheen and apple pie
PTA and FBI

the jumbo jet begins to rise
a joyful nation waves its bye-byes

each religion, race, and creed
gets exactly what they need
god bless Johnny Appleseed

hey!
10. Jazz Odyssey II (2:00)
instrumental
11. (Listen to the) Flower People - Reggea Stylee (3:21)
what's that sound?
listen to what the flower people say
aahhh -
listen, it's getting louder everyday
listen, it's like a bolt out of the blue
aahhh -
listen, it could be calling now for you, for you

flower people walk on by
flower people don't you cry, it's not too late
it's not too late

listen, it's like a Mozart symphony
listen, it's something just for you and me, and me
listen, to what the flower people say
aahhh -
listen, it's getting truer everyday, each and every day
aahhh -
what the flower people say
flower people say
12. Hell Hole (3:35)
the window's dirty, the mattress stinks
this ain't no place to be a man
I ain't got no future, I ain't got no past
and I don't think I ever can

the floor is filthy, the walls are thin
the wind is howling in my face
the rats are peeling, I'm losing ground
can't seem to join the human race

I can't, I'll tell you why
I'm living in a hell hole
don't want to stay in this hell hole
don't want to die in this hell hole
girl, get me out of this hell hole

I rode the jet stream, I hit the top
I'm eating steak and lobster tails
the sauna's drafty, the pool's too hot
the kitchen stinks of boiling snails

the taxman's coming, the butler quit
this ain't no way to be a man
I'm going back to where I started
I'm flashing back into my pan

it's better in a hell hole
wou know where you stand in a hell hole
folks lend a hand in a hell hole
girl, get me back to my hell hole

standing in a hell hole
you know where you stand in a hell hole
folks lend a hands in a hell hole
girl, get me back to my hell hole
13. Big Bottom (3:39)
the bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
that's what I said
the looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
or so I have read
my baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

big bottom
big bottom
talk about bum cakes
my girl's got 'em
big bottom
drive me out of my mind
how can I leave this behind?

I met her on Monday, 'twas my lucky bun day
you know what I mean
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
you know what I mean
my love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
big game is waiting there inside her tights

big bottom
big bottom
talk about mud flaps, my girl's got 'em
big bottom
drive me out of my mind
how can I leave this behind?

my love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
big game is waiting there inside her tights

big bottom
big bottom
talk about bum cakes
my girl, she got 'em
big bottom
drive me out of my mind
how can I leave this behind?
14. Celtic Blues (1:25)
when I first laid eyes on county dunne
I was green as the hills so high
but in later years the streets ran red with
blood neath the violet sky

I loved me a lass whose hair was long
and brown as the finest stew
and she swore by the stars in the jet black night
she'd be true as the sky so blue

as I look back on the colours of me life
I see them in fades hues
the red of the blood of the orange and the green
the blue of the sky and the moon's silver sheen
all give me the Celtic blues...
15. Jazz Odyssey III (2:17)
instrumental
16. Warmer Than Hell (3:51)
the devil went to devon
felt like the fourth degree
he said is it hot in here
or is it only me?

Satan sat in surrey
sweating like a pig
he said is this just a fluke
or maybe something big?

warmer than hell
warmer than hell
warmer than hell

Beelzebub's in Brighton
last time there he froze
now he says the sand is far too hot
for his poor cloven toes

prince of darkness went to Plymouth
summer all year long
said is this global warming
or just some stupid song?

warmer than hell
warmer than hell
warmer than hell

when the tarmac bubbles over
and there's sulfur in the air
when the molten gates fly open
you'll wish you hand a friend down there

sir Lucifer left London
in his chariot of flame
what say I take the credit, then
and you shall take the blame

warmer than hell
warmer than hell
warmer than hell
warmer than hell
warmer than hell
17. Stonehenge (4:31)
Stonehenge, where the demons dwell
where the banshees live and they do live well

Stonehenge

where a man is a man and the children dance to
the pipes of pan

Stonehenge

'tis a magic place where the moon doth rise
with a dragon's face

Stonehenge

where the virgins lie
and the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

and you my love, won't you take my hand
we'll go back in time to that mystic land
where the dew drops cry the the cats meow
I will take you there
I will show you how
18. Short and Sweet (6:35)
short and sweet my baby's all mine
head to feet she's barely four nine
don't come up to here
she stay down there
don't come up to here
know what I mean?

short and sweet my little co-star
underneath my faulty radar
give me everything
don't want nothing
give me everything
isn't she fine

short and sweet, wee Aphrodite
tres petit but mucho mighty
my mini-muffin
ain't she somethin'
mini-muffin
sweet as a pie
19. Cups and Cakes (1:41)
cups and cakes
cups and cakes
oh what good things mother makes
you've gotta take tea, won't you take it with me
what a gay time it will be

cups and cakes
cups and cakes

please make sure that nothing breaks
the china's so dear and the treacle so clear
and I'm glad that you are here
milk and sugar
bread and jam
yes please, sir and thank you, ma'm
here I am

cups and cakes
cups and cakes

I'm so full my tummy aches
how sad it must end
but I'm glad I'd a friend
sharing cups and cakes with me
and cakes with me...
