Snakebite Lyrics

Submitted by level 이준기
1. Come On (3:31)
I don't go looking for trouble,
It's always coming my way,
But, I've been looking for you,
And like the summer sun, you welcome my day.

So come on, come on,
And give your man some rock 'n' roll,
And get yourself some sweet rock 'n' roll.

I'm just a soldier of fortune,
Must be the gypsy in me.
I ain't alone when I say
I never needed love so badly before.

Hear me singing "Come on, come on"!
Give your man some rock 'n' roll,
And get yourself some sweet rock 'n' roll.

I keep singing, "Come on, come on"!
"Come on, come on"!
Give your man some rock 'n' roll,
Give your man some rock 'n' roll,
Come on and get some sweet rock,
Come on and get some sweet rock,
Come on and get some sweet rock 'n' roll.

Must be the gypsy in me,
Can see the angel in you.
2. Bloody Mary (3:18)
When you're waltzing down the High Street
Singing that sweet French perfume song
Looking out for the boys who couldn't sing along.
Moving like a dancer on the ballroom floor,
Sweet ballerina get me begging for more
When you're rolling your eyes behind your Dior shades.

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you, looking for me.

I like sugar in my woman more than saccharine,
Too much sweet talk make a nice boy mean.
All in all, Mary, you're no good for me.
Just like a bee-sting, babe, you're a pain in my heart
Hurting me more and more.
You get me down on my knees when you talk dirty to me.

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you.
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary,
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.

You know that Madame Palm and her five sweet daughters
Couldn't give a man what the doctor ordered.
Ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.

Bloody Mary, the queen of the ball,
Bloody Mary, you want it all.
I've been looking for you.
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary,
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.

You know that Madame Palm and her five sweet daughters
Couldn't give a man what the doctor ordered.
Ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.
I told, ooh, Mary, I love the way you turn it on.
3. Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City (5:07)
Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.
Baby, since you been around.

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity, child
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.

Every place that I go,
Well, it seems so strange.
Without you love, baby, baby,
Things have changed.
Now that you're gone
Y'know the sun don't shine,
From the city hall
To the county line, that's why

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
Ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.

Every place that I go,
Well, it seems so strange.
Without you love, baby, baby,
Things have changed.
Now that you're gone
Y'know the sun don't shine,
From the city hall
Woman, to the county line, an' that's why

Ain't no love in the heart of the city,
There ain't no love in the heart of town.
There ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around.

There ain't no love in the heart of the city,
There ain't no love in the heart of town.
Ain't no love, sure 'nuff is a pity,
Ain't no love 'cos you ain't around,
'Cos you ain't around.
4. Steal Away (4:16)
And when the day is done
I'll find you woman, and run,
Don't ask no question
And you won't get no lies,
And if you steal away,
I'll be your only lover
And I will love you till the day that I die

And if you steal away,
I'll turn your night into day
And get you crying like a dog for a bone
And if you say you will,
I'll be your only lover
And if you're good,
I'll never leave you alone

Now, woman, don't be shy,
I see that look in your eye,
A little snake-bite won't do nobody wrong
And if you shake what you got
I'll be your only lover,
And I'll be howling for you all night long

Steal away, steal away,
Steal away, steal away

And if you steal away,
I'll turn your night into day
Don't ask no question,
And you won't get no lies
And if you say you will,
I'll be your only lover
And I will love you
'Til the day that I die
5. Keep on Giving Me Love (5:13)
Oh, you told me you were burned by holy water,
And the priest forgot the words
He was trying to say
It seems your best friend
Is your own reflection,
And no promise of love
Is gonna make you wanna stay

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,

Baby, I don't mind

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love

You got fox eyes,
They burn like a sunrise,
You got a walk that makes a mans' blood turn to wine.
You bought and sold me
For you lover,
As long as you feed me good, baby, I don't mind

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,
Baby, I don't mind

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love

So you told me you were burned by holy water,
And the priest forgot the words
He was trying to say
It seems your best friend
Is your own reflection,
And no promise of love
Is gonna make you wanna stay

I don't mind,
You can think it over slow,
And tell me what you find
I'm marking time,
If you got love to give,
Baby, I don't mind

Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me loving,
Keep on giving me love
6. Queen of Hearts (5:15)
She was the keeper of all my reason,
Possessor of all I owned,
She kept me on the edge of darkness
With words as cold as stone
Then you came along,
Your eyes were flashing with desire,
Oh babe, you got me burning, so much
You got my soul on fire

Honey, you move me,
You got me so I can't sleep at night,
You tell me you believe in me,
And you say you're gonna treat me right

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
They say that love's a gamble,
But, I got the Queen of Hearts

If I could touch the crystal silence
That we have after making love,
Just to tell you I need you here
In the glow of the stars above

If you ever leave, or deceive,
Or fool around,
You could be right,
You could be wrong,
But, woman, I know I'll miss you
When you're gone

Honey, you move me,
Like the wind thro' a willow tree
Ain't no doubt about it, baby,
You make the blindman see

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start
I'm gonna tell you, holy Roller,
They say that love's a gamble,
But, I got the Queen of Hearts

You drive me crazy when you walk,
Crazy when you talk,
Crazy when you walk with me

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
Gonna tell you, holy roller,
You're the Queen of Hearts

You gave me the answer,
I knew right from the start
I'm gonna tell you, holy roller,
You're the Queen of Hearts...
7. Only My Soul (4:33)
Only my soul, stops me crying,
Wondering why I feel alone
And only my love keeps me from
Weeping, so bad,
Giving me strength, to carry on

Lead me on thro' restless waters,
Walk with me along the way
Live the moment, and tomorrow
For the Lord will take it all
On judgement day

Broken dreams lay all around me,
Sad eyed children of despair
Whispered voices in the distance
Call me on to who knows where

Lead me on thro' restless waters,
Walk with me along the way
Live the moment, and tomorrow
'Cos the Lord will take it all on judgement day,
And the Lord will take it all on judgement day

Hear me crying out for love
Hear me crying out for love
I'll never let you know it,
I can only show it in my song

Only my soul

Hear me crying out for love
Hear me crying out for love
I'll never let you know it,
I can only show it in my song
Only my soul...
8. Breakdown (5:12)
Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

I never saw the tears but I knew you cried for rhythm 'n' blues
Screaming like a wildcat I knew that I had nothing to lose
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown

Shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away
Never see me fall on the ground till I've had my say
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
It's just a breakdown

Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown
