I get up, and nothing gets me down
You got it tough
I've seen the toughest around
And I know, baby, just how you feel
You've got to roll with the punches to get to what's real

Oh can't you see me standing here
I've got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen
Oh can't you see what I mean

Might as well jump, jump
Might as well jump
Go ahead, and jump, jump
Go ahead, and jump

Ah-oh
Hey you
Who said that
Baby how you been
You say you don't know, you won't know
Until you begin

Well can't you see me standing here
I've got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen
Oh can't you see what I mean

Might as well jump, jump
Go ahead, and jump
Might as well jump, jump
Go ahead, and jump, jump

Might as well jump, jump
Go ahead, and jump
Get it and jump, jump
Go ahead, and jump
Jump, jump, jump, jump

Poundcake
Poundcake
Yeah, she's gotta have a soul,
Or it won't feel right,
We're just playin, clean and simple
Wrapped up, nice and tight
In a home-grown, and down home,
That makes a woman
Cookin' up that old time long lost recipe, for me
It's gettin' hard to find
Guess it ain't hip enough now
You take an average guy
Who can't identify
And there's a short supply
Of the fine, fine stuff,
Lemme get on, lemme get on, lemme get on some of that
Shake it up, pick it out nice,
Lemme get on, lemme get on, lemme get on outta there,
I still love my baby's poundcake
Home grown, and down home,
Yeah, that's the woman,
Still cookin up an old time, long lost recipe
Lemme get on some of that,
Uh ha, uh ha, ho
Uh ha, uh ha, ho, yeah
I want some of that
Uh ha, uh ha, ho
Gimme some of that, uh ha, uh ha, ha...ow!
Oh, got some real fine, poundcake..
I've been out there,
Tried a little bit of everything
Its all sex without love
I felt the real thing is poundcake
Home grown, and down home,
Yeah, that's the woman,
Still cookin with that old time, long lost recipe, yeah, whew!
She's down home and down home,
Oh, that's my woman,
Gimme some of that,
Uh ha, uh ha, ho
Uh ha, uh ha, ho,
Lemme hold that
Uh ha, uh ha, ho
Uh, uh ha, uh ha ho, yeah
Home grown, and down home, whew!
C'mon, babe,
Gimme some of that
Gimme some of that
Home grown, way down home, yeah!
Uh ha, uh ha, ho, yeah
Gimme some of that, whew!

When it´s love
Everybody's lookin' for somethin'
Somethin' to fill in the holes
We think a lot but don't talk much about it
'til things get out of control
How do i know when it's love
I can't tell you but it lasts forever
How does it feel when it's love
It's just something you feel together
When it's love
You look at every face in a crowd
Some shine and some keep you guessin'
Waiting for someone to come into focus
Teach you your final love lesson
How do i know when it's love
I can't tell you but it lasts forever
How does it feel when it's love
It's just something you feel together
Oh oh oh oh
Oh when it's love
Oh oh oh oh
You can feel it yeah
Oh oh oh oh
Nothing's missing
Yeah
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Nothing's missing
How do i know when it's love,
I can't tell you but it lasts forever
How does it feel when it's love
I can't tell you but it lasts forever
When it's love
When it's love
It'll last forever
When it's love
You and i
We're gonna feel this thing together
When it's love
When it's love
You can feel it
We'll make it last forever
When it's love

Right now
Don't wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don't dream about yesterday, hey
C'mon turn, turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon,it's everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
Miss the beat, you lose the rhythm,
And nothing falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction,
Slipped a little off your pace, oh,
The more things you get, the more you want,
Just trade in one for the other,
Workin so hard, to make it easier, whoa,
Got to turn, c'mon turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon, it's everything
Right now,

Finish what ya started
Come on baby, finish what ya started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
If you wanna see other guys
Baby, i could let it slide
You wanna lover, you want a friend
Mama, i can be both of them
I got the tools to satisfy
Just walk away, if i fall shy at all
Come on baby, finish what you started
I'm incomplete
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
I need some sympathy
I like to take each step, one by one
Right on time, you will arrive
By keepin' the dream alive
It's alive and it's kicking
Inside of me
So come on baby, please
Come on baby, finish what you started
I'm incomplete
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Come on and finish me
Come on baby, finish what you started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Come on baby, finish what you started
That ain't no way to treat the broken hearted
Baby, come on
Baby, come on

So right down to the bottom of the top (ooh ooh)

Only thing that's on my mind - ah, she's forgotten my attention

Judgement day
 Arr-heah!

It's my life. Get off my ass, get outta my face
Man, I don't see no problem
Kickin' back, ain't kickin' you, no no!
Anyway, if I make 'em, I'll solve 'em

Whoa, oh, ohh. That's right. Yeah yeah-yeah. Woo!

Makin' plan's a waste. Ain't no future here
Got no faith, got no religion

Oh tell me why (ooh-ooh) should I (ooh-ooh)
(Ahh) Care or even, why should I try?
I just slide slide on by (ooh-ooh)
(Ahh) Never bad enough to crucify me

Huah! Put it out until Judgement Day
I'll bear the cross on Judgement Day

I done most anything, keep 'em doin' anything 'cause
Sometimes I just wanna do nothin'
Nothin' lost, so tell me how can I lose? Ha
When I'm startin' off with nothin'

Oh tell me why (ooh-ooh) should I (ooh-ooh)
(Ahh) Care or even wanna try?
I just slide (ooh) slide on by (ooh-ooh)
(Ahh) Never bad enough to crucify me.

Ow! Put it off until Judgement Day
I'll bear that (same old cross) same ol' cross
On Judgement Day. Ow!

Uh! Uh!
Ow! Hey!

(Guitar Solo)

Woo!
Mmm

Hey man, everything's all right. Yeah.

The dream is over
Psst!
Hey, come on man. Wake up

Yea-yeah!

I see the power changin' hands
Risin' from the streets
A self-made businessman
Knows how the system can be beat

Oh, we're the lost generation
Have no place to go
The road to destruction
Is all we need to know

'Cuz it's a rip-off
We're stepped on and cheated
We're flat stone cold lied to
We're not defeated. No!

It's ah, easy money
It's a way out
Join the family
No middleman. No IRS
Your ticket out of poverty

Oh, we're the lost generation
I hold fate from a string
Lookin' for a direction
Reachin' out for anything

So, dream another dream
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over (Ahh-ahh)
Dream another dream (Dream another dream)
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo)
Over, yeah
So dream another dream!

(Guitar Solo)

Oh!
Ow!

Ow! It's a rip-off
We're stepped on and cheated
Flat stone cold lied to
We're not defeated. No!

Dream another dream
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over, over (Dream another dream)
Dream another dream
This dream is over, oh (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over. Over, yeah (Dream another dream)
(Dream) Dream another dream (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
(Dream) Dream another dream (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Oh, this dream is over

Pleasure dome
Now I know none of this was planned, it all just kinda happened
I got more than I wanted, but how is still a mystery
Obsessed with this feeling, I trusted it, so I followed it
I'm tripping and stumbling across the land, full of miracles
Into a world so far from home, miles and miles from nowhere
Rooms without doors open for me, oh no
Taking me miles and miles from nowhere
Oh (miles and miles), oh yeah
Lost in this pleasure dome, lost in my own pleasure dome
Oh man, I ain't got a clue, how you get out, or how to find this place
I want my control back, but I'm afraid, I'll lose that feeling
Lost in a world so far from home, I'm miles and miles from nowhere
Falling inside my own pleasure dome, I'm miles and miles from nowhere
Oh (miles and miles), oh yeah
Lost in this pleasure dome, lost inside my pleasure dome
(Solo)
Lost in a world, can't find my way home, miles and miles from nowhere
Falling inside my own pleasure dome, miles and miles from nowhere
Millions of miles, oh no, miles and miles and miles from nowhere
Miles and miles and miles and miles, oh
Lost in this pleasure dome, lost inside my pleasure dome, yeah
Lost, lost

Eagles fly
Sunday morning 9 a.m.
I saw fire in the sky
I felt my heart pound in my chest
I heard an eagle cry

Now I'm alive I can breathe the air
Feel the wind, smell the earth in the air
I watch an eagle rise above the trees
Project myself into what he sees

Hey-
Take me away
Come on and fly me away
Take me up so high
Where eagles fly
I often dream I sail through the sky
I've always wished I could fly
The simple life of a bird on the wing
Oh Lord, I could sing

Take me away
Come on fly me away
Lift me up so high
Where eagles fly
Oh yeah-

(solo)

Oh yeaah...

I'm alive, I breathe the air
Wash the earth from my face
I catch a glimpse of another dream
I turn, I look but there's no trace
Take me away
Come on, fly me away
I wanna fly away
Pick me up so high
Where eagles fly
Oh yeah-

Eagles fly, oh, take me away
Eagles fly, oh, take me away
Come on, let's fly away where eales fly
Come on, fly away where eagles fly!

In n out
Yeah, I've been in debt, from conception
And I'll pay for the rest of your life

Uh uh uhu yeah, uh uh uhu yeah, uh uh uhu yeah, ooh c'mon
(Solo)
Hey it all depends how you see it
