1. Come Out and Play (4:55)
Twisted sister...
Come out and play...
Twisted sister...
Come out and play...
Twisted sister...
Come out and play...
Twisted sister...
Come out and play

Are you afraid
Of things that go bump in the night?
Behind closet doors
Of things when you turn out the light
Don't be afraid of the night
There's a light in the dark burning bright
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid...
...of the light

Come inside our world
An oyster 'round a pearl
You'll all be safe inside
A perfect place to hide, you'll see
Fun by decree
Ride above the storm
The average and the norm
A new found ecstacy
A wild fantasy come true
This one's for you
Oh, welcome to our show
Oh, welcome to our life
Just follow me and you'll set yourself free
Now won't you come out and play

Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play

Join our cavalcade
Enter the world you made
We're only here for you
To do what you won't do, you know
On with the show
A place where fallacy
Becomes reality
We'll spin you head around
We're programmed to astound, stand by
Prepare to fly
Oh, welcome to our show
Oh, welcome to our life
Just follow me and you'll think that you're free
Now won't you come out and play

Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play
Come out and play
Come on out and play

Come out and play...
Come on out and play...
Come out and play...
Come on out and play...
Come out and play...
Come on out and play...
2. Leader of the Pack (3:44)
Hey, is he really goin' out with her?
There he is, let's ask him
Hey man, is that your ring she's wearin'?
Uh, huh
Man, it must be great ridin' with her
Are you pickin' her up after school today?
Uh uh
By the way where'd you meet her
I met her at the candy store
She turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture?
Yeah, we see
That's when she fell for

The leader of the pack

Her folks were always putting me down
They said i came from the wrong side of town
They told her that i was bad
But she knew i was sad
That's why she fell for

The leader of the pack

One day her dad said find someone new
She had to tell me that we were through
I stood there and asked her why
But all she could do was cry
"i'm sorry i hurt you"

The leader of the pack

She was so small
As she kissed me goodbye,
Her tears were beginning to show
And as she drove away on that rainy night
I begged her to go slow
If she heard i'll never know
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

I felt so helpless what could i do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
The gang they all stop and stare
I can't hide my tears but i don't care
I'll never forget her

The leader of the pack

Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
And now she's gone
Leader of the pack
3. You Want What We Got (3:44)
I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got

Sometimes you drive me mad
With the things you say and do
You act like we're so bad
Well, i got a message for you
You don't fool anyone
With your jealousy
You want it all and give us none
That ain't the way it's gonna be

I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got

Checkmate we named your tune
Don't give me no alibies
We burst your red balloon
Maybe now you realize
When you laugh and put us down
You're tryin' to cover up your fears
Just like a circus clown
It's just a mask, just a mask to hide your tears

I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got

You want it
We got it
We got it
You don't
You want it
We got it
We got it
You won't
You want it
We got it
We got it
You don't
You want it
We got it
We got it
You won't

I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want what we got
I know what you want
You want it
You want what we got
We got it
I know what you want
You want it
You want what we got
You know what i got
I got what they got
You want what i got
They want what we got
4. I Believe in Rock 'n' Roll (4:03)
Check it out
I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the united states of rock
And to the point of view for which it stands
One music under one god
Yes, even god loves rock 'n' roll
With liberty and justice for all lands

Every day
I work so hard
Every day
I'm dealt the cards
Every day
I'm told exactly what to do
Every day
I lose control
Every day
I rock 'n' roll
Every day
It's gonna help to see me through

I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll

Do you take this music
To be your lawfully wedded rock
To have and hold in sickness and in health
For richer or for poorer
For better or for worse
Together until death comes to yourself?

Every day
I work so hard
Every day
I'm dealt the cards
Every day
I'm told exactly what to do
Every day
I lose control
Every day
I rock 'n' roll
Every day
It's gonna help to see me through

I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll

Sister says:
Oh, would that my words were written down
Would that they were inscribed on a record
That with an iron fist and led zeppelin
They were cut in the rock forever
But as for me, i know that heavy metal lives
And that it will at last stand forth upon the dust
That i myself shall see
My own ears not another's shall behold it
And from my flesh i shall see it rock
My inmost being is consumed with longing
This is the word of the rocker

I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
I believe in rock 'n' roll
5. The Fire Still Burns (3:33)
You thought it was gone
But the fire goes on
And i thought you knew me
I told you before
'til i settle the score
That i'll never run free
I have enough pain and anger in my brain
To last many lifetimes
Yet still it grows, and the more that it shows
I won't have peace of mind

The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns

I have a dream
And as strange as it seems
There's no embers glowing
The fire's gone out and there's no need to shout
'cause no anger's showing
But it's not true, nothing i ever do
Seems to ease my fury
Get out of my way
I'm the hangman today
And the judge and jury

The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns

Fire, fire, still burns
Fire, fire, still burns
Fire, fire, still burns
Fire, fire, still burns
Fire, fire, still burns
Fire, fire, still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
The fire, the fire still burns
6. Be Crool to Your Skool (3:54)
Be cruel to your school
'cause you may never get another
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll
Be cruel to your school
Just like a sister or a brother
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll

Well i don't think i'll make it through another day
It's eight o'clock and all ain't well
My brain hurts so much it's startin' to decay
And i'm livin' in my private hell
Didn't somebody tell me this would be so great
Be the best thing i ever had?
How come they never told me 'bout the word "exaggerate"
How'd somethin' so good get so bad?
'cause hey, i gotta know
Am i slow?
Where do i go from here?
Do abc's
And 123's
Mean that much to me, that much to me, me, me, me, me, me, me

Be cruel to your school
'cause you may never get another
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll
Be cruel to your school
Just like a sister or a brother
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll

Sing it alice
I see them walkin' 'round like the livin' dead
Ain't they got nothin' between their ears
How come they don't seem to hear a single word i say?
They ain't the only ones who're bored to tears
Now there must be a better way to educate
'cause this way ain't workin' like it should
Can't they just invent a pill or frozen concentrate
That makes you smarter and taste, mmm, so good
'cause hey i gotta know
What i'll have to show
When i hi-hi-ho it from here
Will i be in pain
Or will i have a brain
Or will i go insane, i've gone insay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ane

'cause hey i gotta know
What i'll have to show
When i hi-hi-ho it from here
Do abc's and 123's
Mean that much to me
That much to me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me

Be cruel to your school
'cause you may never get another
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll
Be cruel to your school
Just like a sister or a brother
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll

Be cruel to your school
'cause you may never get another
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll
Be cruel to your school
Just like a sister or a brother
Be cruel to your school
In the name of rock and roll
All right
7. I Believe in You (5:23)
Why does no one seem to understand
That it's more than love i need
It's so hard to keep your faith alive
When nobody else believes
Oh i need someone there for me
Need someone who can see
Need someone to show me
Ohhhh, that they are there to help me fight
If i fall, to set me right
Someone there to hold the light
Won't someone say

I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you

It's so hard to do it all yourself
Fighting for your dreams alone
When the toy's upon the highest shelf
A child's tears soon become stone
Oh why does no one lend a hand
Why does no one understand
Why i need to make a stand
Ohhhh,it's so hard to carry on
When all your hope is gone
All your dreams have come undone
I need to hear

I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you

Why won't someone say these words
Are they really so absurd?
Must they always go unheard?
Ohhhh, if someone needed the light
I'd be there to help them fight
If they fell, i'd set them right
And then i'd say

I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
I believe in you
Won't someone say i believe in you
I believe in you
Won't someone say i believe in you
I need to hear i believe in you
I believe in you
8. Out on the Streets (4:27)
I walk alone
Through sleepless nights
I'm just another number
Somethin' just ain't right
Searchin' for something
In this human zoo
Kaleidoscope of faces
Maybe, maybe it might be you
I feel like i lost my way
Things get darker every day that i stay

You're out on the streets
Livin' on your own
You're out on the streets
So far from home
When you're out on the streets
You can't understand what's goin' on
You're out on the streets
Your heart's your only home

The mind it wanders
Through shattered dreams
Hours pass in seconds
And my heart it screams
I can't fight the past
I force back all of my tears
'cause there ain't no turnin' back
Minutes, minutes turn to years
Someone listen to my prayers
Can't help feelin' no one cares, no one dares

You're out on the streets
Livin' on your own
You're out on the streets
So far from home
When you're out on the streets
You can't understand what's goin' on
You're out on the streets
Your heart's your only home

Maybe there's a place for me
Is my dreaming to be free, fantasy

You're out on the streets
Livin' on your own
You're out on the streets
So far from home
When you're out on the streets
You can't understand what's goin' on
You're out on the streets
Your heart's your only home
You're out on the streets
You're livin' on your own
You're out on the streets
So far, so far from home
When you're out on the streets
I can't understand what's goin' on
You're out on the streets
Your heart's your only home
9. Looking After No. 1 (3:07)
They always told me i must try to be
Like everyone in the nation
Go with the flow, remember me is we
There must be no deviation
Well, now i think that i'll go my own way
I've got my own point of view
I just don't care what other people say
I do what i wanna do
You know that i'm ready
I'm ready to rock
You know that i'm ready
I'm ready to rock
Gonna rock

I'm lookin' out for number one / number one
I'm lookin' out for number one / number one
I'm lookin' out for number one / number one
I'm lookin' out for number one / number one

The time has come for you to make a stand
You've got to do things your own way
Forget about the style, forget the brand
'cause every dog has his own day
It doesn't matter what the others think
What counts is do you like you?
You think you're drownin' but you'll never sink
Just do what you wanna do
You better get ready, get ready to rock
You better get ready, get ready to rock
Gotta rock

You know that we're ready, we're ready to rock
You know that we're ready, we're ready to rock
Gonna rock
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for number one / number one
We're lookin' out for, out for number one
Yeah
10. Kill or Be Killed (2:46)
Evil's comin'
Fight the fire
Push has come to shove
Let's all pray
We need the help
Death from up above
We must fight, we won't surrender
The king will never change
Hold the line, there's no contender
The outcome's prearranged

It's kill or be killed
Live or let die
Kill or be killed
Though you don't know why
It's kill or be killed
Rock or let roll
Kill or be killed
Burn or save your soul

Death is certain
There's no question
Life's not quite you see
Pick your path
And make decisions
For eternity
Choose your weapons
This war started
Long before you came
Fight the good fight
Let's be sure they'll
Never rise again

It's kill or be killed
Live or let die
Kill or be killed
Though you don't know why
It's kill or be killed
Rock or let roll
Kill or be killed
Burn or save your soul

Don't sleep in the fire
Have faith and desire
Then fight for your life
And be free
It's kill or be killed
Live or let die
Kill or be killed
Though you don't know why
It's kill or be killed
Rock or let roll
Kill or be killed
Burn or save your soul
It's kill or be killed
Live or let die
Kill or be killed
Though you don't know why
It's kill or be killed
Rock or let roll
Kill or be killed
Burn or save your soul
