"SEE YOU COMIN'"

I can see you comin', I see you comin' now
Runnin' right on time, just like the New York Central
Don't roll too fast for me, please don't roll to fast
We've got to make it last
Sex is so elemental

When I see you comin'
Can't let you get away
When I see you comin'
It really makes my day
to see your face that way

I can hear you moanin', I hear you moanin' now
I wanna make you scream chile and you better know it
You can't be too loud for me, you got to cry out loud
If you don't make a sound
girl how you gonna show it?

When I see you comin'
Can't let you get away
When I see you comin'
It really makes my day, to see your face that way

When I see you comin'
Can't let you get away
When I see you comin'
It really makes my day, to see your face that way
When I see you
I love to see your face, baby
When I see you
No one could take your place honey
When I see you
Your sugar's just so sweet chan
When I see you
You good enough to eat sweet thing
When I see you
My kitty sitting pretty pretty pretty
When I see you
My little pussycat
See you!

===================

"THEO"

Gonna tell you a little story
It's a tale of double Dutch
One name you've surely heard of
One you ain't heard of much
I know, I know
It's no secret that's for sure, no no
Every artist needes a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh
You know what I'm talkin' 'bout

I've been reading all the letters
So I thought it only right
To tell someone about it
So I wrote this song tonight
I know, I know, listen,
Like an arrow needs a bow
Every artist needs a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh
Go Van Gogh! (guitar solo)

So now you've heard my story
This tale of double Dutch
One name I know you've heard of
One you ain't heard of much
I know, I know, yeah
It's no secret any more, no no,
Every artist needs a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh

I know I know I know
Like an arrows needs a bow
Every artist needs a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh
That's for sure
Every artist needs a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh
What'd I say? I'll say it one more time
Every artist needs a brother
Like Theo Van Gogh

===========================

"POSSESSION OBSESSION "

He wants love, she wants money
He wants a sugar, she needs a honey
He wants a car, she wants a ring
It's gone too far
She wants everything!
Uh huh

He wants sex, she wants a hug
He has a breakdown in the hole he dug
Things are getting rougher, every single day
And it's getting tougher (tougher)
To keep it locked away

Possession Obsession
Can't tell wrong from right
Possession Obsession
It's cut black and white

He needs an answer, gets no replies
He needs a woman he can idolize
Seems like a world, without a heart
Can't keep together (ever)
What's bound to fall apart

Possession Obsession
Can't tell wrong from right
Possession Obsession
It's cut black and white
Possession Obsession
Can't tell wrong from right
Possession Obsession
It's cut black and white
He wants everything!
She wants everything!
Possession Obsession
Got to have it all
Possession Obsession
Got to have everything right now!
Are you listening to me?

=========================================


"MOTOR RUNNING"

I feel my motor running
I hear my engine humming
I feel the hot blood flowing
I need some white kicks to get me going
Oh, my knees are weak
My tongue's tired
And I can't speak
I know what's in it for me
Got to kick down the door
If you can't find the key!

I feel my motor running
I hear my engine humming
I feel the hot blood flowing
I need some white kicks to get me going

So hot!
I can't even think
I need just one last drink
Walk a tightrope
It's the finest line
I'm all shagged out
What'd she say?
She said "do it one more time"
Do it do it!

I feel my motor running
I hear my engine humming
I feel the hot blood flowing
I need some white kicks to get me going
I feel my motor running

=====================================

"SO DEEP"

So Deep
Don't know if I can swim in it
So Deep
Right from the beginning it was
So Deep
I'm out of control
Can't seem to find my way
Out of this hole

There can be no smooth sailing
On the stormy sea of love, I know
Many's the time I felt it failing
Don't rock the boat baby
I can't take it no more


So deep
Don't know if I can swim in it
So deep
And right from the beginning it was
So deep
Yes, I'm out of control
Can't seem to find my way
Out of this hole

The tide is high in passion
When I jump in I'm a man possessed
But like the world of fashion
One year what's chic, turn around
The next year it's a mess


So deep
Don't know if I can swim in it
So deep
And right from the beginning it was
So deep
Yes, I'm out of control
Can't seem to find my way
Out of this hole

Do I miss you?
Do I miss you!
I wanna be with you
Don't you miss me too
Honey!
Honey!


So deep
Don't know if I can swin in it
So deep
Right from the beginning it was
So deep, yeah
I'm out of control
Can't seem to find my way
Out of this hole

So deep
You're Jaws in the waters of love
So deep
Oh yeah, too deep for me
Much too deep now baby
So deep
I feel like Jules Verne
So deep
20,0000 leagues under the sea


============================


"HORNY LIPS"

I met her in a Chinatown bar
Acting like a camped out movie star
Sipping Lime and Rum
Until the morning comes
They call her Horny Lips
Always at the chic-est place to be
She gets her face in High Society
Putting on the Ritz
All the gossip fits
Around Horny Lips

Horny Lips
Flicking her tongue
Horny Lips
Was told when she was young
To be a popular miss
You gotta know where to kiss those boys

She's got the charm
To bust your bone
Even when she's talking on the telephone
It's all legs and hips
Once you come to grips
With those Horny Lips

Horny Lips
Jackboots and spurs
Horny lips
The gentlemen prefer
Some social register class
A piece of ass with the charm school poise

Horny Lips
Ah ah ah ah ah
Horny Lips!

=========================

"OUT ON THE LINE"

This is 544-5179
You got the right number
But you missed me this time
I'm working or playing
Or maybe asleep
So your name and message right after the beep
(The beep the beep the beep the beep)

Hi, my name is Desire
It's short for Desirée
And everybody thinks it suits me
Just fine!
Laying it out on the line
Love on a wire
The tension mounts
It's burning like a fire
Laying it out on the line
A little hot talk
Urban romance
Let your fingers do the walking

This is 544-5179
You got the right number
But you missed me this time
I'm working or playing
Or maybe asleep
So leave your name and message
Right after the beep
(The beep the beep the beep the beep)

Hi, my name is Temptation
That's my real name
And maybe you'll find out why
In Time

Laying it out on the line
Love on a wire
The tension mounts
It's burning like a fire
Laying it out on the line
A little hot talk
Urban romance
Let your fingers do the walking

Hi
Hi!
What's your name?
My name is Action
Well I guess my name must be Reaction
You know like, Action and Reaction
I like it! Do you want to meet me sometime?
How about tonight at dinner.. about nine?

Laying it out on the line
Love on a wire
The tension mounts
It's burning like a fire
Laying it out on the line
A little hot talk
Urban romance
Let your fingers do the walking
Laying it out on the line
So many calls
So little time
A kick without the danger
Laying it out on the line
Telephone sex, fantasy games
Played out with a stranger
Laying it out on the line
I talk it like you like it
You talk it like I like it
Laying it out on the line
You talk it like I like it
I talk it like you like it
Laying it out on the line

============================

"LES ANIMAUX DE PARTAY"

Downtown in New York City
Where the music sounds so hot
And everybody's dancing
And talking 'bout themselves a lot
In all the latest fashions
Ritzy magazines
Rich old men get over
With girls in still in their teens

They go out all night
And sleep through the day
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay
They never work
'Cos life is for play
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay

Ça va comme si
Ça va comme ca
Toujours ici
Toujours la`-bas
Ah yeah

If you live in Paris
Or in Tokyo
It's the same all over
This international show
You may think it's silly
Or you may think it's ok
But nothing's gonna stop it
It's gonna happen anyway

They go out all night
And sleep through the day
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay
They never work
'Cos life is for play
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay

Ça va comme si
Ça va comme ca
Toujours ici
Toujours la`-bas
Ah yeah

They go out all night
And sleep through the day
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay
They never work
'Cos life is for play
Talking about
Les Animaux De Partay
Who'd I say?
Les Animaux De Partay, That's right!
Les Animaux!
Animaux!
Les Animaux

==================================

"BRIDGE TO THE MOON"

A star's disappearing
Time to go to bed
But I can't stop hearing
Voices in my head
It's a catchy tune
Made for singing
On a bridge to the moon

The wind is weeping
Hear it gently sigh
The city's sleeping
Close your tired eyes
'Cos it's sunrise soon
Too late to bulid a bridge
To the moon

It seems so far away
A distance I can't forget
Still I've got this fascination
I can't work out yet
It could be a million miles away
But before I'm done
I'm gonna take those steps
One by one

It may seem romantic
But I'm a fool that way
If it takes forever
I'll get there some day
On this rainy night in June
Making plans for a bridge
To the moon
Step by step
One by one
Step by step One by one
Making plans for a bridge to the moon
Understand it's a bridge to the moon
Under construction


====================================

"INSTANT GRATIFICATION"

My mouth is on fire and I'm takin' like a diplomat
Gotta try and show her that there's nothing wrong with doing that
But when I need a little variation
Got to have a fresh sensation
I don't wanna have to wait
For instant gratification

The real trouble started when they caught us at it on the train
Another time eight miles high up on an aeroplane
But if I wanna do it in the car
Or I want it when we're at the bar
I don't wanna have to wait
For instant gratification

It's a modern world
These are changing times
I want a modern girl
You want it clearly defined?
Oh baby!

My mouth is on fire and I'm takin' like a diplomat
Gotta try and show her that there's nothing wrong with doing that
But when I need a little variation
Got to have a fresh sensation
I don't wanna have to wait
For instant gratification

Gimmee gimmee gimmee
Instant gratification
Gimmee, gratification
When I say I want it right now
I want it right now
It's a modern world baby
These are changing times
If you don't wanna live by my rules
Bye bye!
Awwww, what's that you say?
You wanna try?
You wanna try?
All right!


============================================


"TIMELESS LOVER"

If baby, is a rebel in ruby
I'll throw it in to her flame
Star, is what she is to me
There's heaven in her name
I want to touch
I want so much

To have a timeless lover
Under kisses cover
We'll sail the stormy sea
I want a timeless lover
I won't need another
Across eternity

Now I'm, gonna rock her steady
Like the waves upon the shore
Yeah I'm gonna a roll her fantasies
Right out on the floor
I wanna touch
I want so much

To have a timeless lover
Under kisses cover
We'll sail the stormy seas
I want a timeless lover
I won't need another
Across eternity
I want a timeless lover
I need a timeless lover

==============================

"FOREIGN PRINCE OF TOKYO"


I was walking
Down the streets I used to know
I was talking to myself
Remembering all the emotional
Highs and lows

I'm soaking wet 'cos it's raining outside
But it doesn't matter
If I slip, then let's slide
If you don't believe me
It don't matter no more
See, I remember 20 years ago
I was the foreign prince of Tokyo
(oooh that was so long ago)
Yeah that was so long ago

Yeah it's all changed now, this old city ain't the same
Seems so strange, so strange
I only recognize the place by name

All of those memories I kept in my mind
We go out dancing now
The years all unwind
I've been gone too long
But don't you ever ignore
When I tell you 20 years ago
I was the foreign prince of Tokyo
(Oooh that was so long ago)
Yeah that was so long ago
When Roppongi was mine babe!

(Spoken) I can remember walking down at night
Aoyama Dori, to go to my place, Mugen
Soaking wet 'cos it's raining outside
But it doesn't matter
If I slip I just get a taxi ride
If you don't believe me
It don't matter no more
'Cos I remember 20 years ago
I was the foreign prince of Tokyo
(oooh that was so long ago)
Hey!
You ever been to one of those "love hotels"
in Sendagaya?
Yeah that's something they don't have
Any other place in the world
I been there lot of times, hahaha!
Oooh that was so long ago

==================================


"KNIFE"

You kicked me when I was down
I kicked you when I got up
What kind of love is this
Where everybody's ass
Gets whupped
Guess it's the nature of the beast
You were the dog who bit the hand
What kind of love is this
I'm reeling every time I try to stand

Does it matter to you
When you do the things you do
That the knife cuts both ways
Sometimes you win, sometimes you've got to lose
"Cos the knife cuts both ways, yes it does

I finally heard the starter's gun
In this race of infidels
So what kind of love is this
Where everything is shot to hell
So where do we go from here
Now that the truth is coming out
What kind of love is this?
Tell what it's all about

Does it matter to you
When you do the things you do
That the knife cuts both ways
Sometimes you win, sometimes you've got to lose
"Cos the knife cuts both ways

Ooooh did you save it for a rainy day?
(save it for a rainy day) Now that everybody's gone away
(everybody's gone away)
Now I'm sitting here all by myself
And you're sitting there all by yourself
If this is between you and me
Why do so many have to pay?

Does it matter to you
When you do the things you do
That the knife cuts both ways
Don't act so cool
Sometimes you could be fooled
'Cos the knife cuts both ways
The knife cuts both ways
(The knife cuts both ways)
Knife cuts both ways, blade don't play
Knife cuts both ways, it'll slice and dice you now
Knife cuts both ways, Ooh yeah it cuts both ways
Knife cuts both ways, don't forget it honey
We got flashing silver, and hot blood
Cold steel, and hot blood, it's a flood
Flashing flashing flashing silver, and hot blood
Knife cuts both ways, knife cuts both ways
