Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper Disc 2 Lyrics


Disc 2

 

 


Hello Horray

Hello! Hooray!
Let the show begin, I've been ready.
Hello! Hooray!
Let the lights grow dim, I've been ready.

Ready as this audience that's coming here to dream.
Loving every second, every moment, every scream,
I've been waiting so long to sing my song
And I've been waiting so long for this thing to come.
Yeah. I've been thinking so long I was the only one.

Roll out, Roll out
Wwith your American dream and its recruits, I've been ready.
Roll out, Roll out
With your circus freaks and hula hoops, I've been ready.

Ready as this audience that's coming here to dream.
Loving every second, every moment, every scream,
I've been waiting so long to sing my song
And I've been waiting so long for this thing to come.
Yeah - I've been thinking so long I was the only one.

I can stand here strong and thin.
I can laugh when this thing begins.

God, I feel so strong.
I feel so strong.
I'm so strong.
I feel so strong.
So strong.
God, I feel so strong,
I am so strong.

Elected

I'm your top prime cut of meat, I'm your choice
I wanna be elected
I'm your yankee doodle dandy in a gold Rolls Royce
I wanna be elected
Kids want a savior, don't need a fake
I wanna be elected
We're all gonna rock to the rules that I make
I wanna be elected,

Elected
Elected
Respected
Elected

(Good evening Mr & Mrs America and all ships at sea,
The candidate is taking the country by storm.)

I never lied to you, I've always been cool
I wanna be elected
I helped you get the vote, and I told you 'bout school
I wanna be elected

Elected
Elected
Hallelujah
I wanna be selected
By the people of the United States of America

(.. Kennedy the President is worth billions of dollars...)

We're gonna win this one, take the country by storm
We're gonna be elected
You and me together, young and strong
We're gonna be elected

Elected
Elected
Respected, selected, call collected
I wanna be elected

"And if I am elected I promise the formation of a new party
A third party, the Wild Party!
I know we have problems
We got problems right here in Central City
We have problems on the North, South, East and West
New York City, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago
Everybody has problems
And personally, I don't care"

Billion Dollar Babies

Billion dollar baby
Rubber little lady, slicker than a weasel
Grimy as an alley
Loves me like no other lover

Billion dollar baby
Rotten little monster, baby, I adore you.
Man or woman living couldn't love me like you, baby.

We go dancing nightly in the attic
While the moon is rising in the sky
If I'm too rough, tell me
I'm so scared your little head will come off in my hands

Yeah, Billion Dollar Baby
I got you in the dimestore
No other little girl could ever hold you
Any tighter, any tighter than me, baby
Billion dollar baby
Reckless like a gambler, million dollar maybe
Fightin' like dog that's been infected by the rabies

We go dancing nightly in the attic
While the moon is rising in the sky
If I'm too rough, tell me
I'm so scared your little head will come off in my hands

Million dollar baby
Billion dollar baby
Trillion dollar baby
Zillion dollar baby

No More Mr Nice Guy

I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
'Til they got a hold of me
I opened doors for little old ladies
I helped the blind to see
I got no friends 'cause they read the papers
They can't be seen with me
Aand I'm gettin' real shot down
And I'm feeling mean

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
They say he's sick, he's obscene

I got no friends 'cause they read the papers
They can't be seen with me
And I'm gettin' real shot down
And I'm, I'm getling mean

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
They say he's sick, he's obscene

My dog bit me on the leg today
My cat clawed my eyes
Ma's been thrown out of the social circle
And dad has to hide
I went to church incognito
When everybody rose,
The Reverend Smith
He recognized me
And punched me in the nose

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
He said you`re sick, you`re obscene

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
He said you`re sick, you`re obscene

I Love The Dead

I love the dead before they're cold
Their blueing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see... nothing

I love the dead before they rise
No farewells, no goodbyes
I never even knew your now rotting face
While friends and lovers mourn your silly grave
I have other uses for you Darling

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
Da da da da da da da da da da da da dead

Their blueing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see...
Nothing

Respect For The Sleepers (early version of Muscle Of Love)

(Roll it)

Well I don't really know myself
'Cause I ain't I really tried
Rotten. leaning on that crazy stuff
Too many friends have died

Got respect for the sleepers
But the sleepers...

I'll be buried in the same old way
But probably not for years
Yeah, I'll be buried in the same old way
From TV whiskey and beer

Got respect for the sleepers
But the sleepers are dead

Well I don't really know my self
'Cause I ain't I really tried
But falling on that crazy stuff
Too many friends have died

Got respect for the sleepers
All the sleepers are dead
Yeah, they're dead

Muscle Of Love

Aw, who's the queen of the locker room
Who's the cream of the crop
Poor Joey took her to the matinee
Said, "God, she wouldn't stop!"

Holy muscle of love
My heart's a muscle

Well, I must have caught you that crazy age
Where everything is hot
'Cause I don't know if the things I'm thinking
Are normal thoughts or not

Holy muscle of love
Yeah, I got a muscle of love
Yeah
Ooh

I read Dad's books like I did before
Now things are crystal clear
Lock the door in the bathroom now
I just can't get caught in here

Holy muscle of love
Well, I got a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
I got a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
My heart's a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
Well, I got a muscle of love
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Must be a gift from above
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Hallelujah, etc.)

Teenage Lament '74

What a drag it is
These gold lame' jeans
Is this the coolest way
To get though your teens
Well, I cut my hair weird
I read that it was in
I looked like a rooster
That was drowned and raised again

What are you a-gonna do
Tell you what I'm a-gonna do
Why don't you get away
I'm gonna live today

I ran into my room
And I fell down on my knees
I thought that fifteen
Was gonna be a breeze
I picked up my guitar
To blast way the clouds
But somebody in the next room yelled
"You gotta turn that damn thing down"

What are you gonna do
Tell you what I'm a-gonna do
Why don't you get away
I'm gonna cry all day

And I know trouble is brewing out there
But I can hardly care
They fight all night about his private secretary
Lipstick stain, blonde hair, oh,oh, oh

What are you gonna do
Tell you what I'm a-gonna do
Why don't you run away
I'm gonna live today

But even I don't know what I'm gonna do
Don't know what I'm gonna do
No!

What are you a-gonna do
Tell you what I'm a-gonna do
Why don't you run away
I'm gonna live today

What are you a-gonna do
I'll tell you what I'm a-gonna do
Why don't you get away
Well, I'd rather cry all day

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
Gonna do
Gonna do (Alice, Alice, Alice, Alice)

What are you gonna do [Background singer ad lib]
Gonna do
Gonna do

What are you gonna do
What are you
Gonna do

Working Up A Sweat

Aw, When you touch there, honey
Makes my blood perspire
You got my body flaming
Like a California fire
Pulsing, pounding, pushing
No longer in control
Heatwave in my brain
Smolder in my soul

You got me workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
I've been playing all night long
Time I was gettin' home
But I've got no place to get

Spontaneous combustion
Scientific fact
But your approach to friction
An unnatural act
Bells I hear ain't fire drills
I hope you understand
It's a bona fide five alarmer
A fly's melting in my hand

You got me workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
I've been playing all night long
Time I was gettin' home
But I've got no place to get

Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Yeah, yeah

I've been playing all night long
'Bout time I was gettin' home
But I've, ooh

Dante's famed inferno
Was a trip to hell and back
But you and a bottle in a cheap hotel
Screams pyromaniac
Bandages come off today
Really feeling sick
The hardest part explainin'
All those blisters on my - nose!

Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
I've been playing all night long
Time I was gettin' home
But I've got no place to get

Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat

I've been playing all night long
'Bout time I was gettin' home
But I've, ooh

Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat
Workin' up a sweat

I'm Flash

I'm Flash, I'm the hero
I'm the bopper who's the poppa of the crew
I'm Flash, and I fight evil
And my spaceship flies the red, white and blue
I'm Flash, like a streaker
You'll find me cruising out among the stars
And I'm feared by every outlaw
And every renegade from Jupiter to Mars

The jails are full in Saturn and I can tell you why
'Cause I'm the full-blasting, protoblasting hero of the sky
On Mars the smugglers starve no matter what they try
'Cause I'm the everlasting, flabber-ghasting guy who's flying high

I'm Flash, yeah, I'm the hero
From the stars spangled U.S of A
I believe in packin' punchin' power
And hitting fast 'cause that's the only way
I'm Flash

I'm Flash, and I'm a mover
My spaceship glides at twice the speed of light
I'm Flash, and I'm a He-Man
I'm a six foot one inch block of dynamite
I'm Flash, in shining armor
And I love to rescue damsels in distress
And my wave length is always open so I can answer any call of S.O.S

I've been in trouble of the worst kind ever since I left the womb
I'm a death defying, terrifying spotlight in the gloom
When you see me coming, boys, just give me lots of room
'Cause I'm the liquefying, crucifying harbinger of doom

I'm Flash, I'm the hero
I'm the bopper who's the poppa of the crew
I'm Flash, and I fight evil
And my spaceship flies a red, white and blue
You know, my spaceship flies a red, white and blue
I said, my spaceship flies the stars spangled red, white and blue
I'm Flash, spelled F - L - A - S - H

Space Pirates

Out of the blue came a kill-crazy crew
Whose motto was stomp on the weak
With bones in their hair
They was hungry as bears
And their leader was King of the freaks

They was... Space Pirates
The lowest scum of the yellow sun
They was... Space Pirates
Sack a galaxy just for fun
(fire away hahaha)

Well now, out of the blue came this wolf pack who knew
That the name of the game was to hate
Perverts and pimps followed one-legged gimps
They was bow legged bastards of fate

They was... Space Pirates
Skulls lie white on the martian sands
They was... Space Pirates
An empires ransom in their hands
(people were scared hahaha)

Out of the blue came this mind-blowing zoo
A collection of mutated crud
Death on their hips
There was foam on their lips
And behind them a shadow of blood

They was... Space Pirates
Broken bodies and twisted minds
They was... Space Pirates
Screaming nightmares left behind

Out of the blue came a kill-crazy crew
Whose motto was stomp on the weak
Bones in their hair
They was hungry as bears
And their leader was King of the freaks

They was... Space Pirates
The lowest scum of a yellow sun
They was... Space Pirates
Sack a galaxy just for fun

Welcome To My Nightmare (Single Version)

Welcome to my nightmare
I think you're gonna like it
I think you're gonna feel you belong
A nocturnal vacation
Unnecessary sedation
You want to feel at home 'cause you belong
Welcome to my nightmare, whoa

Welcome to my breakdown
I hope I didn't scare you
That's just the way we are when we come down
We sweat and laugh and scream here
'Cause life is just a dream here
You know inside you feel right at home here
You're welcome to my nightmare, yeah

Welcome to my nightmare
I think you're gonna like it
I think you're gonna feel you belong
We sweat laugh and scream here
'Cause life is just a dream here
You know inside you feel right at home here
Welcome to my nightmare, oww
Welcome to my breakdown
Yeah

Only Women Bleed (Single Version)

Man got his woman to take his seed
He got the power - oh, she got the need
She spends her life through pleasing up her man
She feeds him dinner or anything she can

She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Man makes your hair gray, he's your life's mistake
All you're really lookin' for is an even break
He lies right at you, you know you hate this game
He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain

She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Black eyes all of the time
Don't spend a dime
Clean up this grime
And you there down on your knees begging me please
Come watch me bleed

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Cold Ethyl

One thing I miss is Cold Ethyl and her skeleton kiss
We met last night making love by the refrigerator light
Ethyl Ethyl let me squeeze you in my arms
Ethyl Ethyl come and freeze me with your charm

One thing, no lie, Ethyl frigid as an eskimo pie
She's cool in bed, yeah she oughta be 'cause Ethyl's dead
Ethyl, Ethyl let me squeeze you in my arms
Ethyl, Ethyl come and freeze me with your charms
Come on Cold Ethyl
Freeze me babe

One thing, it's true, Cold Ethyl I am stuck on you
And everything is my way, Ethyl don't have much to say
Ethyl, Ethyl let me squeeze you in my arms
Ethyl, Ethyl come and freeze me with your charm
Come here Cold Ethyl
What makes you so cold?
Ooh so cold

Cold Ethyl
Cold Cold Ethyl
Cold Ethyl
Cold Cold Ethyl
Cold Ethyl

Cold Ethyl
Cold Cold Ethyl
If I live 'til ninety-seven
You'll still be waiting in refrigerator heaven
'cause you're cool
You're ice
Cold Ethyl
You're my paradise
Ow!

Department Of Youth

We're in trouble all the time
You read about us all in the papers
We walk around and bump into walls
A blind delegation
And we ain't afraid of high power
We're bullet proof
And we've never heard of Eisenhower
Missile power, justice and truth

We're the Department of Youth
Your new Department of Youth
We're the Department of Youth
Just me and youth

We talk about this whole stupid world
And still come out laughing, ha
We never make any sense
But hell that never mattered
But we'll make it through our blackest hour
We're living proof
And we never heard of Billy Sunday
Damon Runyon, mad as a cout

We're the Department of Youth
Your new Department of Youth
We're the Department of Youth
Just me and youth

We're the Department of Youth
The new Department of Youth
We're the Department of Youth
The new Department of Youth
We're the Department of Youth, ah
We got the power
We're the Department of Youth, ah
We got the power
We're the Department of Youth, ah
We got the power
(Alice: Who's got the power?)
(Children: We do!)
We're the Department of Youth, ah
We got the power
(Alice: Who's got the power?)
(Children: We do!)
We're the Department of Youth, ah
We got the power

Escape

Paint on my cruel or happy face
I hide me behind it
It takes me inside another place
Where no-one can find it
Escape
I get out when I can
Escape
Anytime I can
Let`s all Escape
I'm crying in my beer
C'mon lets Escape
Just get me out of here

Don't get me wrong, don't get me right

So I escape

Yeah I escape
Anytime I can
Let`s all escape
I'm crying in my beer
Escape
Just get me out of here

But where am I running to?
There's no place to go
Just put on my makeup and get me to the show
Yeah, Escape
Yeah
What are you waiting for?

My doctor said just come around
You'll be taken care of
And while he ran my problems down
I stole his mascara

That's how I escape

I Never Cry

If there is a tear on my face
It makes me shiver to the bones
It shakes me, Babe
It's just a heartache that got caught in my eye
And you know I never cry
I never cry

Sometimes I drink more than I need
Until the TV's dead and gone
I may be lonely but I'm never alone
And the night may pass me by
But I'll never cry

Take away, take away my eyes
Sometimes I'd rather be blind
Break a heart, break a heart of stone
Open it up but don't you leave it alone

'Cause that's all I got to give you
Believe me Babe, it ain't been used
My heart's a virgin, it's never been tried
And you know I'll never cry
And you know I'll never cry
And you know' you know' you know I'll never cry
I'll never cry

Break a heart, break a heart of stone
Open it up, and don`t you leave it alone

'Cause that's all I got to give to you
Believe me Babe, it ain't been used
My heart's a virgin, it's never been tried
And you know I'll never cry
I'll never cry

Go To Hell

For criminal acts and violence on the stage
For being a brat, refusing to act your age
For all of the decent citizens you've enraged
You can go to Hell

For gambling and drinking alcohol constantly
For making us doubt our parents authority
For choosing to be a living obscenity
You can go to Hell

You're something that never should have happened
You even make your Grandma sick

You'd poison a blind man's dog and steal his cane
You'd gift wrap a leper and mail him to your Aunt Jane
You'd even force feed a diabetic a candy cane
You can go to Hell

You're something that never should have happened
You even make your Grandma sick

For criminal acts and violence on the stage
For being a brat, refusing to act your age
For all of the decent citizens you've enraged
You can go to Hell
