DO YOU REMEMBER ROCK'N'ROLL RADIO 3.50

Do you remember Hullabaloo,
Upbeat, Shindig and Ed Sullivan too?.

Do You Remember Rock'N'Roll radio?

Do you remember Murray the K,
Alan Freed, and high energy?
It's the end, the end of the 70's.
It's the end, the end of the century.

Do you remember lying in bed with your covers
Pulled up over your head? Radio playin' so one can see.
We need change, we need it fast before rock's just part
Of the past. 'Cause lately it all sound the same to me.

Oh-oh. Will you remember Jerry Lee,
John Lennon, T. Rex and Ol' Moulty?
It's the end, the end of the 70's.
It's the end, the end of the century.

By my side. 'Cause I'm affected, 'fected

DANNY SAYS 3.06

Danny says we gotta go. Gotta go to Idaho

Sound check's at 5:02. Record stores and interviews.
Oh, but I can't wait to be with you tomorrow.

Baby

Oho-ho-ho, we got nowhere to go and it may sound
Funny, but's true. Hangin' out in 100 B watching
Get Smart on TV. Thinkin' about.
You and me and you and me.

Hangin' out in L.A. And there's nowhere to go.
It ain't Christmas if there ain't no snow.
Listening to Sheena on the radio.
Oh-ho oh-ho.

CHINESE ROCK 2.28

Somebody calls me on the phone.
Say hey-hey-hey is Arty Home. You wanna
Take a walk. You wanna go cop. You wanna go get some Chinese Rock.

I'm livin' on a Chinese Rock.
All my best things are in hock.
I'm livin' on a chinese rock.
Everything is in the pawn shop.

The plaste fallin' of the wall.
My girlfriend cryin' in the shower
Stall.
It's hot as a bitch.
I should've been rich.
But I'm just diggin' a Chinese ditch.

THE RETURN OF A JACKIE AND JUDY 3.12

Jackie is a punk, Judy is a runt.
They went down to the Mudd Club.
And they both got drunk. Oh-yeah.

Jackie is a bookie, Judy's taking loans.
They both came up to New York.
Just to see the Ramones. Oh-yeah.

And oh, I don't know why she wrote that letter.
Oh no, oh no. Oh I don't know why,
We won't forget her oh no.

Jackie's playing hooky, Judy's playing pool.
They both got caught for cutting.
Got to go to summer school. Oh-yeah.

Jackie's scalping tickets. Judy's getting
harassed. They both got kicked outside.
Didn't have a backstage pass. Oh-yeah.

And oh, I don't know why she wrote that letter.
Oh no, oh no. Oh I don't know why,
Don't know what's on her mind.
I don't know, no, I don't know.

But, I can't stand to see her cryin'
She's still cryin', she ain't tryin'.
She's going to get left behind.
Nobody wants you, nobody wants you.

LET'S GO 2.31

Don't wanna study on the G.I. bill.
Want more action, haven't had my fill Mercenary,
fight for anyone, fight for money, fight for fun.

Let's go.

Got a country you wanna protect.
But your army is more likely to defect.
Hire my SMG with a full clip.
On automatic it's a guaranteed hit.

Let's go.

Gee it's kinda scary out here.
Mosquitos are happy tonight.
Mommy, Daddy, can I please come home.
Even if just for on night.

Let's go.

Shocked how deadly we fight back.
Troublemakers who attack mercenary.
Fight for anyone, fight for money, fight for fun.

Let's go.

I CAN'T MAKE IT ON TIME 2.32

I can't make it on time.
I can't make it on time.
I keep tryin' and tryin'
I can't make it on time.

I can't hurry and you can't wait. It doesn't
matter 'cause we're already late.
I can't get off the telephone.
It always rings when I'm alone.

You gotta wait wait 'cause you don't
Need no one. Wait wait, 'cause you
Know that I'm the one.
You gotta wait. Hey, hey' hey. Wait.

THIS AIN'T HAVANA 2.18

I had no advantage over you.
There was troubles and I had 'em too.
Just 'cause you're so stung out.
Don't mean it can't work out.

Ba-ba-banana, this ain't havana.
Do you like bananas, ba-ba-bananas.

Say you're a victim of society.
You ask them for your mercy.
Just like the cats in the garbage cans.
When's their time coming, man.

You better offer some resistance.
You better give up on my insistence.
Things happen overnight.
You don't give up without a fight.

Ba-ba-banana, this ain't havana.
Do yo like bananas, ba-ba-bananas.

You say you're poor and uneducated.
You ain't gotta chance 'cause you're hated.
You're on your way to life's promotion.
You hinder it with emotion.

Ba-ba-banana, this ain't havana.
Do yo like bananas, ba-ba-bananas.

ROCK AND ROLL HIGH SCHOOL 2.38

well I don't care about history.
Rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school

Rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school
I just wanna have some kicks.
I just wanna get some chicks.
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school

Well the girls out there knock me out, you know.
Rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school
Cruisin' around in my GTO.
Rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school
I hate the teachers and the principal.
Don't wanna be taught to be no fool.
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school

Fun fun rock'n'roll high school.
Fun fun rock'n'roll high school.
Fun fun rock'n'roll high school.

ALL THE WAY 2.29

Feedback blasting out my ears. Makes me
So high. I love all the monitor men.
But why are they alive. The van is making
Me crazy. It's just like being in the navy.

Doomsday, doomsda's coming- 1981.
But until things blow. I'm gonna have
Some fun. The bubble's going to explode.
Probably never live to get old.

But I just wanna have some fun. Probably
Won't see no money. I just wanna have some fun.
Before they throw me in the sanitarium.

HIGH RISK INSURANCE 2.08

High risk insurance. The time is right.
High risk insurance. The time is right.

Got endurance, I was trained. I got my sights
Adjusted and my telescope aimed.

Everybody wants an explanation.
Got no love for the enemy nation.

You gotta fight to stay independent.
I got my pride and I'm gonna defend it.
