Man from Mecca

(Scott Tucker Priest Connolly)

Take a black grab
I think of what you'll had
Here's a wildcat
Take a white mouse
He's hiding in a house
Here's a coloured love

Pay, pay, pay
You can get it if you
Say, say, say
That you wanna, but
Hey, hey, hey
Just remember it's the way

Day- or nighttime
You can really shine
With your groupy clothes
If the inside
Is on the outside
Everybody knows

Pay, pay, pay
You can get it if you
Say, say, say
That you wanna, but
Hey, hey, hey
Just remember it's the way

Take a black grab
I think of what you'll had
Here's a wildcat
Take a white mouse
He's hiding in a house
Here's a coloured love

Pay, pay, pay
You can get it if you
Say, say, say
That you wanna, but
Hey, hey, hey
Just remember it's the way

New York Connection

(Scott - Tucker - Priest - Connolly)

It takes eight days where I wanna go
Well, there's just me am I only go
I've got no face to make this slow
The further I travel the less I know

Somebody help me get home
I can't spend my whole life alone
Somebody help me get home
I don't wanna be on my own

Won't somebody put me
In the right direction
'Cause all I need is
A New York connection
Really need a woman's affection
I've got to make the close connection

Somebody help me get home
I can't spend my whole life alone
Somebody help me get home
I don't wanna be all alone

Somebody help me get home
I can't spend my whole life alone
Somebody help me get home
I don't wanna be on my own
Don't wanna be on my own
I don't wanna be on my own
I don't wanna be on my own
I don't wanna be on my own
I don't wanna be on my own...

Block Buster

(Chinn - Chapman)

Aah, aah
You better beware, you better take care
You better watch out if you've got long black hair
He'll come from behind, you go out of your mind
You'd better not go, you'd never know what you'll find

Aah, aah
You look in his eyes, don't be surprised
If you don't know what's going on behind his disguise
Nobody knows where Buster goes
He'll steal your woman out from under your nose

Does anyone know the way, did we hear someone say
We just haven't got a clue what to do
Does anyone know the way, there's got to be a way
To Block Buster!

The cops are out, they're running about
Don't know if they'll ever be able to Block Buster out
He's gotta be cought, he's gotta be taught
'Cos he's more evil than anyone here ever thought

Does anyone know the way did we hear someone say
We just haven't got a clue - ow!
Does anyone know the way, there's got to be a way
To Block Buster!

Does anyone know the way did we hear someone say
We just haven't got a clue what to do
Does anyone know the way, there's got to be a way
To Block Buster!

Aah, aah, aah, aah
Buster, Buster, to Block Buster!
Buster, Buster, to Block Buster!
Buster, Buster, to Block Buster!...

Need a Lot of Lovin'

(Scott - Tucker - Priest - Connolly)

Mighty fine woman
Need her by my side
So I can rock and roll it
I can feel my pride

I gotta find a chicken
Gotta make up to
But I ain't no telling Sally
That I'm feeling blue

Don't let go
'Cause ya got me going
You're moving fast
And there ain't no slowin' you
I need a lot of lovin'
Gonna have a lot of lovin'
Need a lot of lovin' tonight

Early in the morning
'To the middle of the night
Gonna rock it to the rhythm
Of the early morning light

With my baby boogalooin'
And the feeling's getting strong
Gonna keep it in the move
Until the darkness come along

Don't let go
'Cause ya got me going
You're moving fast
And there ain't no slowin' you
I need a lot of lovin'
Gonna have a lot of lovin'
Need a lot of lovin' tonight

Mighty fine woman
Need her by my side
So I can rock and roll it
I can feel my pride...

Hell Raiser

(Chinn - Chapman)

Look out!
Mama let me out on a saturday night, she said now
Go out and get her go and hold her tight
I said now Mama, you don't understand
Ev'ry time I touch her hand
It's like I'm burning in the fires of hell
And if I hold her too long
You never can tell what'll happen to me
I wouldn't want you to see

Look out
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Natural born raver, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Natural born raver, yeah, yeah, yeah
Look out!

She's like a live bomb shell
Like a flash out of hell
And when she's shaking her ooh
Everyone fell at her feet
And that's neat and she took me completely
By surprise with her ultra sonic eyes
That were flashing like hysterical danger signs
That said beware where you tread
Or you'll go out of your head

Look out
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Natural born raver, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Natural born raver, yeah, yeah, yeah
Look out!

Hell raiser, hell raiser, hell raiser
Hell raiser, hell raiser, ooh
Now Mama, you don't understand
Ev'ry time I touch her hand
It's like I'm burning in the fires of hell
And if I hold her too long
You never can tell what'll happen to me
I wouldn't want you to see...

Burning

(Chinn - Chapman)

When there ain't no light
But the night is bright
And it's cold outside
I'm burning
The feeling inside
That I just can't hide
Now it's for you I'm yearning

I ain't asking much
Just a simple touch of you
But you won't have me
I sit right here
And my only fear is you
And all you can be

At the third stroke
It will be five thirty

I'm a simple man
And a simple man
Can't get to you with feeling
Even if I might
Then it wouldn't be right
To you love has no meaning

Ballroom Blitz

(Chinn - Chapman)

Are you ready, Steve? Aha.
Andy? Yeah! Mick? OK.
Alright, fellas, let's go!

Oh it's been getting so hard
Livin' with the things you do to me, aha
Oh my dreams are getting so strange
I'd like to tell you everything I see
Oh, I see a man at the back
As a matter of fact his eyes are red as the sun
And a girl in the corner let no one ignore her
'Cause she thinks she's the passionate one

Oh, yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the man at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said
Boy, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz

I'm reaching out for something
Touching nothing's all I ever do
Oh, I softly call you over
When you appear there's nothing left of you, aha
Now the man in the back
Is ready to crack as he raises his hands to the sky
And the girl in the corner is ev'ryone's mourner
She could kill you with a wink of her eye

Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
And the band started leaving, 'cause they all stopped breathing

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

It's it's a ballroom blitz, it's it's a ballroom blitz
It's it's a ballroom blitz, yeah, it's a ballroom blitz

Rock and Roll Disgrace

(Scott Tucker Priest Connolly)

You're a heterosexual dream
A super phallic machine
Well, who do you think you are
Well, you think you're a star
Yeah, a rock'n roll star, you are

Oh, you part your lips that way
Do you care what people say
The chicks know what you are
Well, they think you're a star
Yeah, a rock and roll star, you are

Rock'n roll
You're rock'n roll queen
Don't you know what I mean
Oh, you know
You're a rock'n roll queen
A young man's dream

Given guitar's head
In a silver stream of red
Has it gone too far
Then you know you're a star
Yeah, a real superstar, you are

Rock'n roll
You're rock'n roll queen
Don't you know what I mean
Oh, you know
You're a rock'n roll queen
A young man's dream

Rock'n roll
You're rock'n roll queen
Don't you know what I mean
Oh, you know
You're a rock'n roll queen
A young man's dream

You're a heterosexual dream
A super phallic machine
Who do you think you are
Well, you think you're a star
Yeah, a rock'n roll star, you are

Stairway to the Stars

(Connolly - Priest - Scott - Tucker)

The heroine's a hero
Uprating me to zero
I couldn't hold a candle to you
The hardest part is leaving
This web of love you weaving
You've shattered my illusions
I've come to the conclusion
You' re gonna do a number on me
I'll never get to heaven with you

There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway into your arms
There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway
Stairway to the stars

Girls in your condition
They ain't in no position
To do the things you're doing to me
You opened like a flower
You filled my head with power
Boys get avaricious
Feeling pretty vicious
So don't you paint your fingers for me
No, no, you'll never get to heaven with me (no way)

There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway into your arms
There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway
Stairway to the stars

Take the stairway to my heaven
Take your stairway to my heaven
Take your stairway to my heaven
Take your stairway to my heaven

There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway into your arms
There's a stairway to the stars
Yeah, but it's a freeway
Stairway to the stars
Stairway to the stars
Stairway to the stars
Stairway to the stars

Why don't You do it to Me

(Connolly - Priest - Scott - Tucker)

Stare into space
That ain't the place
You've got the eyes to see me
Reach for the sky
I'm not that high
You've got the hands to feel me

Now it's the time
To lay down the line
Sniffin' around for money
You're in the wrong race
A waste of space
Things that you do
Still turn me on

Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it to me

You take all you leave
Don't have to believe
You've poisen the air I'm breathin'
You send me up
And bring me down
You treatin' me like a plaything

I've had enough
So I'm calling your bluff
What are your ac, your dc
If that's what you are
There's a stool at the bar
I'll drink up my wine
And come with you

Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it to me

Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it (do it to me)
Why don't you do it to me

Why don't you do it (do it to me)...
