Lyrics

You Got Livin’

I been thinkin’ quite a lot lately
About the way that people live from day to day
You know they try to play the game safely
They never venture nor do they ever gain

Turn around your old thinkin’
Lay away forgotten plans
It’s time you learned what you have

You got livin’, yeah
You got life
You got livin’, yeah
You got ta, put a…
Oh put an end to strife

I seen a lot of people claim it’s too late
But what they’re sayin’ is they’re really just afraid
Well I will never be content to stagnate
‘Cuz I’m the kind of guy who steps into the fray

Taste what you’ve been drinkin’
Takin’ for granted what the world demands
It’s time you knew what you have

You got livin’, yeah
You got life
You got livin’, yeah
You got, you got
To put an end to strife

Turn around your old thinkin’
Lay away forgotten plans
It’s time you learned what you have

Taste what you’ve been drinkin’
You’re takin’ all for granted what the world demands
It’s time you knew what you have

You got livin’, yeah
You got life
You got livin’, yeah
You got, you got
To put an end to strife

Finish Line

Stagin’ for the last time of a winning day
And the guy on the right he’d like to put me away
Well the yellow just flashed
I’m gone on green & I didn’t see no red
Well, one more time I’m leaving the line
‘gonna put another sucker to bed

Well, I can see the flag at the finish line

Well first to second’s easy
I’m just pullin’ on the stick
But it’s second to third that’s got me worried
‘cuz banging that suckers the trick
Well two-three done I’m going to four
I’m in front by the nose
And the only thing can stop me now
Is if my engine blows
Well I can see the flag at the finish line

Alright
Move over baby
Hey
Comin’ on through…
Hey
Put her down, shut her down
Yeah, alright

Well I can see the flag at the finish line
Well I can see the flag at the finish line
Well I can see the flag at the finish line
I can see the flag at the finish… line baby

Rock Me Baby

Rock me baby, rock me all night long

Loved By You

There came a lady
All dressed in black, yeah
I gave my heart to her
And she threw it back

And with my memories
I have grown old, yeah
My heart’s still burnin’
My dreams have all gone cold

I’m sure
No man can be loved by you
I said
I’m sure
Ain’t a man can be loved by you

The face of an angel
Move like a cat, yeah
Well when she leaves them
She don’t look back

Well tell me baby
With all of your pride, yeah
splendor and glory
What have you got inside

I’m sure well, no man can be loved by you
Said I’m sure ain’t a man can be loved by you

Yeah, Alright…

Night is fallin’,
And day is dead yeah
I get to thinkin’
In my lonely bed

Well what would have happened
If she’d let herself go
Well did you care babe
That I loved you so

I’m sure well, no man can be loved by you
Said I’m sure well, ain’t a man can be loved by you

Had many women
Amount untold, yeah
Well I never had one
Could steal my soul

Quite like the lady
The one in black yeah
Well oh babe
Please give it back
Please give it back

I want it back

Give it all back
Please give it back

Well I’m sure ain’t a man can be loved by you

Said I’m sure oh ain’t a man can be loved by you
Said I’m sure ain’t a man can be loved by you

Rock’N’Roll Hall Of Fame

The man of the hour
He’s baskin’ in fame
He’s playing out his part inside his fantasy game
The glory and fortune that he’s got at his door
Won’t satisfy the hunger that he’s got to have more, more, more

He’s just living in the middle of a rock’n’roll game
I hear he’s got reservations in the rock’n’roll hall of fame

Well the thousands of faces
All looking at him
They’re waiting for the signal for the show to begin
Well he knows that he’s happenin’
Got the bull by the horns
He’s living for the power and he’s got to have more, more, more

He’s just living in the middle of a rock’n’roll game
I hear he’s got reservations in the rock’n’roll hall of fame

I said he’s living for the power of the rock’n’roll rock’n’roll game
I hear he’s got reservations in the rock’n’roll hall of fame
