    If you don't really love me girl
    Why don' t you just tell me that it is so
    If you don't really love me
    Why the hell don't you just speak up and tell me that it is so
    I've got better things to do down the line
    I might as well pack up all my things and go.

    I don't want you to hug on me and kiss me
    Oh if it don't really mean a thing
    Please don't hug on me and kiss me
    Oh if it don't really mean a thing
    I ain't your yo-yo baby
    I might as well reach on down and cut lose on my string

    Solo

    If you don't really love me
    I wish you'd just tell me that its so
    If you don't really love me I wish you'd just tell me that its so
    I've got better things to do down the line

    Might as well pack up all my things
    Might as well pack up all my things
    Might as well grab my bowling ball
    My tennis racket
    The dog the cat
    The goldfish
    And get the hell on out of here

    Early In The Morning

    She spent the second half of her 16 years
    lying on the bedroom floor
    starring up at herself on the ceiling
    and yelling out for more
    she always lays on satin sheets
    before you can touch her skin
    she don't know if it's day or night
    cause she'll always let you in
    123 Rock sweet 16 you got it all

    She was fed with a silver spoon
    and she slept on a neon bed
    her mom taught art at an all boys school
    and her daddy played with heads
    she don't know the difference
    between loving and a dream
    but if she wants to rock you boy
    she's gonna make you scream
    123 Rock sweet 16 you got it all

    Oh babe
    your driving me wild
    hot with the fever
    you rock and roll child
    you rock and roll child

    If you get to her place of dwelling
    and find that you can't get back
    look for some nasty high heeled shoes
    and nails that are painted black
    and if you are lucky enough
    to find your way back there again
    fall down on your knees and pray
    cause the lord must be your friend
    123 Rock oh sweet 16 you got it all
    123 Rock .. sweet 16 you got it all
    123 Rock oh sweet 16 you got it all

    Times Getting Tougher

    Well moneys getting cheaper prices getting steeper
    I found myself a woman but I just couldnít keep her
    Times getting tougher than tough
    Things getting rougher than rough
    I make a lot of money but I just keep spending the stuff

    Well, pork chops on the market, ask the butcher for a pound
    I couldnít get a chop when I laid my money down
    Times getting tougher than tough
    Things getting rougher than rough
    I make a lot of money but I just keep spending the stuff

    Well, politicians telling folks
    to cut down on their meat
    Why donít they cut the price and let the people eat
    Times getting tougher than tough
    Things getting rougher than rough
    I make a lot of money but I just keep spending the stuff

    Well, I canít afford to live
    guess Iíll have to try
    Undertakerís got a union and it costs too much to die
    Times getting tougher than tough
    Things getting rougher than rough
    I make a lot of money but I just keep spending the stuff

    Slippin' Out

    Well the first time I saw you I knew you were looking so mean
    Well your eyes lit up when I came on the scene
    With a hook so tender you hardly gave out a scream
    I got a sinker that's heavy and a line that's ready for you
    It hangs real low the way you want it to
    I'll sink to the floor just to do it just to do it with you

    Hook line and sinker you're mine
    Tell it to you all the time
    Hook line and sinker Hool line and sinker your mine

    Southern Exposure

    There's one thing I'd like to say
    we got it good in the USA
    were doing what we want and that's not bad
    It goes back for many years
    when all kinds of people with religious fears
    sailed for a land that was so far away
    They didn't care what they went through
    they paid the price for me and you
    and now were living free in the USA

    I like it here in America I'm living free in America
    I like it here in America I'm living free in America
    In America

    We have got the freedom of speech
    we can go anywhere if we want to teach
    it's guaranteed in the constitution
    we have got the right to vote
    to say who we want and who we don't
    it's up to us when we go to the poles

    If you want to go to school and study the stars
    you can do that or learn about cars
    it's up to you at the institutions

    Chorus

    I can cruse the world wide web
    surf the net until I've filled my head
    it's all up to you in the USA
    I can live in the east or west
    in the north or south where I like it best
    any place is fine in the USA

    If you want to go into business
    you can work for yourself
    or if you like you can work for someone else
    you can work for anyone anyone you want at all
    living here is fine in the USA

    Chorus

    My country its of thee sweet land of liberty
    You and me babe Hey hey hey In the USA

    Call My Baby

    Hey big spender, have you been going 'cross town
    Hey there, baby, have you been running around
    You're in such a hurry say you can't be late
    and when you're supposed to meet me you break the date

    Well I'm .... I'm not the waiting kind
    I'm ............... I'm not the waiting kind

    You politicians I'm tired of waiting my time
    And all you fat cats I'm tired of waiting in your line
    Well I hate to hassle and put you uptight
    But I just can't sit and wait for you to get it right

    I'm ............... I'm not the waiting kind
    I'm ............... I'm not the waiting kind
    No no no No no no I'm not the waiting kind

    Solo

    No no no No no no I'm not the waiting kind

    Hey Mr. Tax Man, you got me working overtime
    You promised changes and I ain't seen a dime
    Well I won't go to welfare, not the unemployment line
    I'm gonna take some action
    I'm not the waiting kind

    I'm ............... I'm not the waiting kind
    I'm ............... I'm not the waiting kind
    No no no No no no
    I'm not the waiting kind

    Bad Day

    I spoke with God almighty
    when I saw your face it came to me
    afraid I tried to walk away
    I was put into a place before thee

    Queen of Sheba dance for me
    Queen of Sheba you are so Ire

    I was lost in a foreign land
    raising hell playing in a rocking band
    hopelessly living, living inside of my head
    until you love me
    come and love me
    love me once again

    Queen of Sheba dance for me
    Queen of Sheba you are so ire
    Ocean bound you came to me
    Queen of Sheba dance for me

    Queen of Sheba
    Queen of Sheba dance with me all night
    Queen of Sheba dance with me dance in the moonlight
    Queen of Sheba dance with me
    dance with me all night long
    all night long

    Solo

    I returned to the space we created
    when your loving warmth filled my bed
    hopelessly living inside my head
    until you love me come and love me
    love me once again

    Queen of Sheba dance for me
    Queen of Sheba you are so ire
    Ocean bound you came to me
    Queen of Sheba dance for me
    Queen of Sheba

    Mean Old World

    A look of love puts a smile right on me
    But mostly love has brought me down on my knees
    I feel my heart is ready now to receive
    So if you take this gift of love You must believe in me
    I don't want to fake a love that ain't there
    I don't play around with love you see
    If it's love it doesn't need the strings
    That's how I want our love to be

    I look at some who have played with love and what it cost
    Some have won who have played with love, and some have lost
    I feel my heart is ready now to receive
    So if you take this gift of love you must believe in me

    I don't want to fake a love that ain't there
    I don't play around with love you see
    If it's love it doesn't need the strings
    That's how I want our love to be

    I've got to try to find a love now I see
    That if I want a special love it's up to me
    I feel my heart is ready now to receive
    So if you take this gift of love you must believe in me

    I don't want to fake a love that ain't there
    I don't play around with love you see
    If it's love it doesn't need the strings
    That's how want our love to be

    California Baby

    When the rain starts falling down
    I hear the thunder when the lightning strikes the ground
    It stirs those memories deep inside of me
    I'm hungry for your love, baby can't you see?

    I need you
    I want you by my side
    I need you
    To keep me satisfied

    I'd love you in the morning and I'd love you late at night
    You look so good to me it puts my rocket ship in flight
    And when I see you standing there in the morning light
    I feel like a natural man with a loving appetite

    For you, tonight, all night I feel like making love
    To you, all right, tonight I feel like making love

    And if the fire should get too low
    We'll snuggle up real close and start the fire below
    It's getting near the morning, how long can love go on
    The way you rock & roll me keeps me going till the break of dawn

    I need you
    I want you by my side
    I need you
    To keep me satisfied

    When the rain starts falling down
    I hear the thunder when the lightning strikes the ground
    It stirs those memories deep inside of me
    I'm hungry for your love, baby can't you see?

    I need you
    I want you by my side
    I need you
    To keep me satisfied
    I need you every day and every night
    I need you - you make me come alive
    Tonight, all right, all night, I feel like making love

    Take Me To The Country

    Red Sunglasses
    that's where I want to be
    back on the farm in Goose Creek Tennessee
    the air is so clean
    and the waters right for drinking
    blueberries grown along the path
    just right for thinking
    so take me to the country
    that's where I want to be
    out on the farm in Goose Creek Tennessee

    I'll take the plow
    and turn the soil for seeding
    the crops will be grown
    in the grass that I 'm weeding
    the work is so hard
    my hands are gonna blister
    In the cotton fields where
    I'm working with your sister
    so take me to the country
    that's where I want to be
    soothing memories are waiting for me

    Well urban life can be quite appealing
    But take me to the country for that laid back feeling
    Well my grandma's rocking out in her rocking chair
    I can smell the bacon filling up the air

    Solo

    Well urban life

    Chorus

    Skid Row Blues

    Rollin Down The River

    I'm rolling down the river
    on a big wide boat
    this boats barely wide enough to
    float my worries down stream
    float my worries down stream
    everybody knows how good it feels
    to be rolling down stream

    I look over yonder
    there's a big white post
    a billy goat is tied up there
    with a great big rope
    as we float down stream
    as we float down the river
    everybody knows how good it feels
    to be rolling down stream

    Now your mother calls the children
    the children's run and hide
    beneath the willow tree out at the
    edge of the line
    as roll down stream
    as we roll on down stream
    everybody knows how good it feels
    to be rolling down stream

    Solo

    Yea now look out here
    Allright ...
    Now the big wheel turns
    the little wheel spins round and round
    and the stack blows black smoke
    as we roll on down the river
    as we roll on down the stream

    Now the banjo player's playing
    and the women their open dress
    on the upper deck there'll be big fancy hats
    as we float on down this stream
    as we roll on down the river
    everybody knowing how good it feels
    to be rolling down stream

    I'm rolling down the river on a big wide boat
    the boats barely wide enough to
    float my worries down stream
    float my worries down stream
    everybody knows how good it feels
    to be rolling down stream
