Little Lover

(Young-Young-Scott)

I saw you in the front row moving to the beat
just moving and grooving
killed me when I saw the wet patch on your seat
was it Coca Cola?
ooh baby I hope you liked the show
when the band said goodnight
I had to say hello

I can't get you off my mind, no
little lover
I've been trying hard to find
someone like you

Soul Stripper

(Young-Young)

well I met her in the garden
underneath that old apple tree
sitting with a handful of flowers
looking as cool as can be
we talked away a couple of hours
then she laid her hand on my lap
oh I thought I got to be dreaming
I didn't know I feel in her trap

then she made me say things I didn't want to say
then she made me play games I didn't want to play
she was a soul stripper
took my heart
she was a soul stripper
and tore me apart

she started moving nice and easy
slowly getting near to my spine
killing off each last little feeling
everyone she could find
and when she had me hollow and naked
that's when she put me down
pulled out a knife and flashed it before me
stuck it in and turned it around

then she made me say things I didn't want to say
then she made me play games I didn't want to play
she was a soul stripper
she took my heart
was a soul stripper
tore me apart

soul stripper
soul stripper
you're a soul stripper
soul stripper
soul stripper
soul stripper
took out my heart and tore it apart

you're a soul stripper
soul stripper
soul stripper

---------------------------------------------

You Ain't Got A Hold On Me

(Young-Young-Scott)

you can roll me round your finger
you can roll me if I'm blind
you can roll me tally ho
I'm the easy rolling kind
but don't think I'm facing down hill
cause soon you'll see
you'll lose your grip and slip
cause you ain't got a hold on me

you ain't got a hold on me
you ain't got a hold on me
why don't you let me be
cause you ain't got a hold on me

you can take me to your bedroom
you can take me to your heart
you can take me to a climax
I won't fall apart
but don't count on me giving it
all back to you
just because I'm hooked on living
doesn't mean I'm hooked on you

you ain't got a hold on me
you ain't got a hold on me
why don't you let me be
no, no, you ain't got a hold on me
let me be

you ain't got a hold on me
you ain't got a hold on me
why don't you just let me be
cause you ain't got a hold on me
you ain't got a hold on me
you ain't got a hold on me
you
ain't got a hold on me

you ain't got a hold on me
ain't got a hold on me
ain't got a hold on me
ain't got a hold on me
ain't got a hold on me

Love Song

(Young-Young-Scott)

I can tell by the look in your eyes
I can tell by the way you sigh
that you know I've been thinking of you
and you know what I want to do
oh Jean, oh Jean
oh Jean, oh Jean

when you smile I see stars in the sky
when you smile I see sunrise
and I know you've been thinking of me
and I know how you want it to be
oh Jean, oh Jean
oh Jean, oh Jean

I can tell by the things you say
I can tell that you know the way
and I know what you want me to do
oh I've got hearts and flowers for you
if you leave me you'll make me cry
when I think of you saying goodbye
oh the sky turned a
a deeper blue
that's, that's how'd I feet if
I lost you
Jean
oh Jean
don't go and leave me
cause I love
I love you
I love you
don't leave me
it would make me cry
if you said goodbye
don't go away Jean
don't leave me baby

Show Business

(Young-Young-Scott)

It's A Long Way To The Top (if you wanna rock 'n' roll)

(Young-Young-Scott)

ridin' down the highway
goin' to a show
stop in all the byways
playin' rock 'n' roll
gettin' robbed
gettin' stoned
gettin' beat up
broken boned
gettin' had
gettin' took
I tell you folks it's harder than it looks
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
if you think it's easy doin' one night stands
try playin' in a rock roll band
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll

hotel motel
make you wanna cry
ladies do the hard sell
know the reason why
gettin' old
gettin' grey
gettin' ripped off
under-paid
gettin' sold
second hand
that's how it goes playin' in a band
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
if you wanna be a star of stage and screen
look out it's rough and mean
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
well it's a long way
it's a long way, you should've told me
it's a long way
such a long way

Rock 'N' Roll Singer

(Young-Young-Scott)

my daddy was workin' nine to five
when my momma was havin' me
by the time I was half alive
they knew what I was gonna be
but I left school and grew my hair
they didn't understand
they wanted me to be respected as
a doctor or a lawyer man
but I had other plans
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll
a rock 'n' roll star

well I worked real hard and bought myself
a rock 'n' roll guitar
I gotta be on top some day
I wanna be a star
I can see my name in lights
and I can see the queue
I got the devil in my blood
tellin' me what to do
and I'm all ears
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll
a rock 'n' roll star
I hear it pays well

well you can stick your nine to five livin'
and your collar and your tie
you can stick your moral standards
'cause it's all a dirty lie
you can stick your golden handshake
and you can stick your silly rules
and all the other shit
that you teach to kids in school
'cause I ain't no fool
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll
a rock 'n' roll star
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll
a rock 'n' roll star
yes I are

but I had to try
her deuce was wild
but my ace was high
but how was I to know that she'd been dealt with before

she played 'em fast
and she played 'em hard
she could close her eyes
and feel every card
but how was I to know that she'd been shuffled before
said she'd never had a royal flush
but I should have known
that all the cards were comin'
from the bottom of the pack
and if I'd known what she was dealin' out
I'd have dealt it back
she's got the jack, she's got the jack, she's got the jack, and who knows what else?
