1. Slip of the Tongue (5:20)
Sometime after midnight
The heat begins to rise,
Girl, you'd shame the Devil
With that look that's in your eyes
I know what's on your mind
An' I can't run away,
If I don't give you what you want
There's going to be some hell to pay

Creeping up behind me
Knocking at my door,
I'll never be too blind to see
Just what you're looking for
You roll me over, make me moan,
Oh, such a velvet touch
You'd melt a heart of stone

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue

Just a slip of the tongue

An' if I want a little love
I gotta take a lot of pain,
Make me think a thousand times
Before I kiss again
I'm waiting on you every day an' every night
If I don't try to satisfy
There's gonna be a fist fight

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue

Just a slip of the tongue

The sun is slowly rising
An' I'm sinking to my knees,
I'm dying just to close my eyes
I'm begging, darlin', please
I hear you calling
An' I'm crawling 'cross the floor
I give you everything I've got
An' still you ask for more

Anytime, anyplace,
I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love an' keep you young
All it takes an' no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue

A slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
A Slip of the tongue...
2. Cheap An' Nasty (3:28)
Come on baby...

I get so confused,
But, my heart knows you're one of a kind
Leather an' lace, an angels face,
Riding on a one track mind
You're fully loaded with cruise control,
My four wheels rock with your back seat roll

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me

I get so excited, babe, when I'm invited
To ride in your limousine,
You drive it every day, burn it every night,
I wonder how you keep it so clean
Smooth accelerator, you get me so loose,
You keep your motor running till I run out of juice

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me

Cheap an' nasty

I never knew it could be this way
An' I never thought I'd ever complain,
But, gimme a second just to catch my breath
Babe, before you do it again

All the boys call your name
Down the wishing well,
Baby, when you go
You're like a cat out of hell

You're cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up
Cheap an' nasty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me

Come on an' do the dirty,
Come on an' do the dirty,
Come on an' do the dirty with me
Come on an' do the dirty with me...
3. Fool for Your Loving (4:11)
I was born under a bad sign,
Left out in the cold
I'm a lonely man who knows
Just what it means to lose control

But, I took all the heartache
And turned it to shame,
Now I'm moving, moving on,
And I ain't taking the blame

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'm tired of hiding my feelings,
You left me lonely too long
I gave my heart, and you tore it apart,
Oh, baby, you done me wrong

Don't come running to me,
I know I've done all I can
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
I'll be a fool for your loving no more

I'll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more

So I can say it to you, babe
I'll be a fool for your loving no more,
A fool for your loving no more
I'm so tired of trying, I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more
A fool for your loving no more

Fool for your loving no more...
4. Now You're Gone (4:12)
Now you're gone
I can feel my heart is breaking,
An' I can't go on
When I think of the love that you've taken

In the night I pray for your embrace,
Every time I close my eyes
I can't escape your face
You're out of sight,
But, always on my mind,
I never realized
My love could be so blind

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all I need,
So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it another try
One more time

But, now you're gone
There's an emptiness closing around me,
An' I can't go on
When all I have left is the memory

In the night I call out your name,
I wake up in a cold sweat
An' I'm all alone again
I need your love
Much more than I can say,
I realize without you
I can't face another day

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind
You're all that I want,
So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it
Another try
One more time,
Baby, just one more time

Now you're gone
I can feel my heart is breaking,
An I can't go on
When all of my love has been taken

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind

You're all I want,
Can't you feel the love
In this heart of mine
You're all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I've been losing my mind...
5. Kittens Got Claws (5:02)
Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse
You ain't a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to "A"

Sweet, sweet, child of the street

Heaven sent, you're an angel dressed in black,
Cool, stiletto strut, you're a drop jaw cardiac
You're the genuine, feline, prettiest girl I've ever seen,
With your thief of hearts smile
You're a certified pleasure machine

Sweet, sweet, child of the street

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack

You treat me good,
Sometimes you treat me bad,
But, keep it up, honey,
You're the best time I've ever had
No matter what you put me through I must confess,
Oh, you got more style than a brand new XJS

Sweet, sweet, child of the street

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack...

Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse
I know you ain't a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to "A"

Sweet, sweet, child of the street

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr

But, the kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She'll blow your stack

The kittens got claws,
She'll tear your heart out

The kittens got claws,
She'll scratch your back
The kittens got claws,
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws,
She's a heart attack...

You scratch my back, baby,
An' I'll scratch yours...
6. Wings of the Storm (5:01)
On an' on, the road goes on,
An' it'll go on forever,
Time will show if you and I
Will walk that road together
Through fire an' water, ice an' snow,
Heaven above us, an' hell below,
Holding on, trying to walk the line
With sweet temptation running close behind

I'm talking 'bout love
Ooh, love

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm

Everyday an' every night
I keep hoping it'll be all right,
Trying to leave the past behind,
Still looking for some peace of mind
But, destiny brought us together
An' promised us a time that would last forever
Tho' it's all been said before
It's the kind of love worth fighting for

I'm talking about love
Ooh, love

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep you warm
On the wings of the storm

On an' on, the road goes on,
An' it'll go on forever,
Time will show if you and I
Will walk that road together

I'm talking about love
Ooh, love

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that's yearning, more an' more
A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm
My love will keep you warm
On the wings of the storm...
7. The Deeper the Love (4:22)
When I look back
On everything I've done
I know you must have cried
A river of tears,
But, you were there
When I was feeling low
To walk me through my darkest fears

So when the sun goes down
An' those nights grow colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder

An' the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion

There were times
I almost let you go
When I thought I needed to break free,
But you were there
To whisper in my ear
Why don't you share my dreams with me.

So when the sun goes down
An those nights are growing colder
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder.

An' the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion

I don't mind, what you're doing to me,
I don't mind, 'cause you're all I can see
I don't mind, baby, you mean the world to me

When the sun goes down
An' those nights are growing colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder, baby, baby, baby.

So When the sun goes down
An' those nights are growing colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder.

'Cause the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An' the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion...

I never gonna let you go,
In my heart, I know.
I love you, I love you.
Oh baby, I really love you...
8. Judgment Day (5:16)
The night is gone,
The time has come
To find a new day has begun,
An' it promises to stay
To soothe the pain of wasted years
An' kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way

And from the darkness
Comes a smile,
That reaches out for many miles,
Touching everyone.
No more shadows of the past,
Your spirit free to fly at last,
Shining in the sun

Like the rolling thunder,
I feel the power of love,
It's a gift from heaven
And the Lord above

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

Take it easy, take it slow,
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go,
Places never seen before
'Cause I love you, an' I need you,
I'll do my best to please you,
My love can open any door

When you hear the thunder
In your darkest night,
I'll be there to hold you
When the lightning strikes

So don't you worry,
You can ease your mind
'Cause we'll be dancing
At the end of time

Who loves you, who needs you,
Who'll do his best to please you,
I love you, I need you
I'll get down on my knees

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

So don't you worry, baby
On the road to Judgement Day
Who loves you, who needs you
On the road to Judgement Day

So I love you, and I need you
My love can open any door
My love can open any door...
9. Slow Poke Music (3:59)
Y'know the joint was jumping
Like a dancing fool,
I saw you standing in the corner
Looking oh, so cool
I had a word with the DJ
To make the music hot,
I'm gonna get you on the dance floor
If you are ready or not

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
I'll never leave you alone, I'll never leave you

When you move it to the left,
Or you shake it to the right,
No matter what you do, babe,
It's like dynamite
With your sweet French perfume
An' that criminal walk,
You know you'd melt my ice cream
With your body talk

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
I'll never leave you alone, I'll never leave you

I'm gonna shake you down,
Girl, I'm won't do you no harm

Well, you move so fine,
Like stepping on glass,
An' when you give me that smile,
I see lightning flash
East an' West, North an' South,
Oh babe, you're so hot
I'm gonna melt in your mouth

Slow poke music,
I'll get you down to the bone
Slow poke music,
Get into it, babe,
Slow poke music,
I'll nail it down to the bone
Slow poke music,
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Girl, I'll never leave you alone...
10. Sailing Ships (6:02)
Do you remember
Standing on the shore,
Head in the clouds,
Your pockets filled with dreams
Bound for glory
On the seven seas of life,
But, the ocean is deeper than it seems

The wind was with you
When you left on the morning tide,
You set your sail for an island in the sun,
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead,
For the storm has just begun

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
Lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass you by

You cry for mercy,
When you think you've lost your way,
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
So find the strength and you will see
You control, your destiny,
After all is said and done

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
An' lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass,
Sailing ships will pass you,
Sailing ships will pass you by...

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass you by

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass,
So sailing ships don't pass you,
So sailing ships don't pass you by...

Baby, baby, baby, baby,
You'll find that you're the only one
Can sail your ship across the sky
