Teenage Frankenstein

I'm the kid on the block
With my head made of rock
And I ain't got nobody
I'm the state of the art
Got a brain a la carte
I make the babies cry

I ain't one of the crowd
I ain't one of the guys
They just avoid me
They run and they hide
Are my colours too bright
Are my eyes set too wide
I spend my whole life
Burning, turning

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my hands
And these legs ain't mine

Got a synthetic face
Got some scars and a brace
My hands are rough and bloody
I walk into the night
Women faint at the sight
I ain't no cutie-pie

I can't walk in the day
I must walk in the night
Stay in the shadows
Stay out of the light
Are my shoulders too wide
Is my head screwed on tight
I spend my whole life
Burning, turning

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my arms
And these legs ain't mine

I ain't one of the crowd
I ain't one of the guys
They just avoid me
They run and they hide
Are my colours too bright
Are my eyes set too wide
I spend my whole life
Burning, turning

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my hands
And these legs ain't mine

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my arms
And these legs ain't mine

Give It Up

You got your sugar
You got your spice
You got a kitten
Now isn't that nice
You just can't wait for a picnic in Spring
I just get nauseous when I think of those things

You wait and wait and you wait for a lifetime
For a little piece of cake in the night time, yeah
You wait and wait you can't wait any longer
You wait and wait, couldn't be any wronger no

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up
Give it up

You shop around for a sensible car
You hold your breath when you wish on a star
You settle down in a warm little house
You make some babies with your warm little spouse
Ah, how nice

You wait and wait and you wait for a lifetime
For a little piece of cake in the night time, yeah
You wait and wait you can't wait any longer
You wait and wait, couldn't be any wronger no

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up
Give it up

Just when you got it made
And all your bills are paid
You stumble and fall into your grave
Ah, too bad

Give it up

You wait and wait and you wait for a lifetime
For a little piece of cake in the night time, yeah
You wait and wait, you can't wait any longer
You wait and wait, couldn't be any longer no

Give it up
Don't let it get you down
Give it up
You really really blew it
Give it up
Turn your head around
You used to be so hip, when you hung out on the strip

Give it up
Don't let it get you down
Give it up
You really really blew it
Give it up
Turn your head around
Got some Gucci underwear, got some moose in your hair

Give it up
Don't let it get you down
Give it up
You really really blew it
Give it up
Turn your head around
You got a perfect happy smile, yeah you`re growing old in style

Give it up
Don't let it get you down
Give it up
You really really blew it
Give it up
Turn your head around
Aw.. Games over

Thrill My Gorilla

Sukie honey, we're gonna turn back the clock
To a time when we danced to volcanic rock
We loved to hunt and kill
That's how we used to be
We drank the blood we spilled
And growled at our enemies

Where were you when the monkey hit the fan
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill my gorilla )
Where were you when monkey turned to man
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill my gorilla )

Sukie honey, weren't you right there with me
I seem to remember chasing you from tree to tree
Those prehistoric nights are coming back to me
We must have been the first
To go down in history

Where were you when the monkey hit the fan
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill my gorilla)
Where were you when monkey turned to man
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill my gorilla)

We lay on our skins, original sins
Ah, ah, ah, ah yeah
We touch, we feel
We scream, we squeal
Thrill my gorilla
Thrill my gorilla

Where were you when the monkey hit the fan
Thrill my gorilla
Where were you when monkey turned to man
Thrill my gorilla

We lay on our skins, original sins
Ah, ah, ah, ah yeah
We touch, we feel
We scream, we squeal
Thrill my gorilla
Thrill my gorilla

Where were you when the monkey hit the fan
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill My Gorilla)
Where were you when monkey turned to man
Thrill my gorilla (Thrill My Gorilla)

Life And Death Of The Party

You walk into the room, everybody stares
The talking stops, there's a silence there
The room is yours, you own it now
You're in control and everybody down here knows
You got a place in my heart, I don't want you there
But you come and you go, like a millionaire
You take a walk right across my soul
You're in control and everybody down here knows

You're the life and the death of the party
You got my heart right by the throat
You're the life and the death of the party
When the stage lights rise
You start and stop the show

You love me bad, you love me good
You're unimpressed, that's understood
I lost it all, you knew I would
You're in control and everybody down here knows

You're the life and the death of the party
You got my heart right by the throat
You're the life and the death of the party
And with your head held high
You start and stop the show

It's just one night
It's just one time
It's just one hotel room
It's just another dream
That can't come true

You're the life and the death of the party
You got my heart right by the throat
You're the life and the death of the party
And when the stage lights rise
You start and stop the show
Yeah

You got my heart right by the throat
You're the life and the death of the party
And with your head held high
You start and stop the show
You're the life and the death of the party
You got my heart right by the throat
You're the life and the death of the party
And when the stage lights rise
You start and stop the show
Yeah

Simple Disobedience

Looks like all your laws are broken, all your lines are down
And all your officers are shook up babbling little clowns
Looks like all your power's gone, it's sprayed upon the wall
In blood and spit, it spells out your inevitable fall

And all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)
Yeah, all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)

Now all your complex little schemes that form your master plan
Are scrambled up and that is something you just don't understand
A cyclone of confusion rips right through your holy troops
The very thing that weakens you gives power, gives me juice

And all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)
Yeah, all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)

Take your laser microscope and try to find an answer
No antidote or drug to cure our special strain of cancer
It spreads its revolution wide from cell to cell to cell
Your kingdom's like your body, man, it dies and goes to hell

And all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)
Yeah, all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)
And all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance, yeah
(Simple disobedience)
Yeah, all the hungry outlaws have taken up a stance
(Simple disobedience)

Hey you! Turn around kicking and rearrange your sack

Tie you up baby, really tight
In a lover's knot

Crawlin'

Your dress is hangin' on a hook on the door
My jeans are lying in a pile on the floor, yeah
Flat on my back, tryin' to catch my breath
When we were rockin' tonight
I thought that we were gonna rock to death

But what's that in your eyes?
I'm no longer paralysed
Here we go again

Crawlin', you come crawling to me
I go crawling to you
We come crawling
You come crawling to me
I go crawling to you

Your hair is tangled and your lipstick is gone
You're stretched out, calling my name
With just your high heels on
We hunt each other on our hands and our knees
Well I'm an alley cat
And you're a hot little Siamese

But what's that in your eyes?
I'm no longer paralysed
Here we go again

Crawlin', you come crawling to me
I go crawling to you
We come crawling
You come crawling to me
I go crawling to you

Come on baby
Slither on over here

Crawlin', come crawlin'
Crawlin'
You come crawling to me
Like a snake in a tree
Crawlin', come crawlin'
Crawlin'
I come crawling to you
Slither right back to me
Crawlin', come crawlin'
Crawlin'
You come crawling to me
I think this will bump your knee
Crawlin', come crawlin'
Crawlin'
You come crawling to me
C'mon
C'mon and crawl to me
Crawl to me, crawl to me..

The Great American Success Story

He was born in a depressed nation
Started tough and worked his way right off the street
Thumbed his nose at a graduation
Wheeled and dealed, his education was complete

He's got all his hair, but his life is a wreck
Always been a brat, he don't get no respect
He's got the time, he's got the money baby
You better get out of his way
You better watch out for him, sonny

Back to school
He's gonna take that plunge
Gonna jump back in there
Back to school
He's gonna shape his mind
Gonna shed old skin there

Spent some time in appreciation
Of finer arts and the human body mysteries
Scoring high in procreation
Got an 'A' in the study of female anatomy

He thinks about his teacher in his literary class
He's staring at her legs
But he's dreaming 'bout her face
He's got the time
He's got the money baby
You better get out of his way
You better watch out for him, sonny

Back to school
He's gonna take that plunge
Gonna jump back in there
Back to school
He's gonna shape his mind
Gonna shed old skin there
Back to school
He's gonna take that plunge
Gonna jump back in there
Back to school
He's gonna shape his mind
Gonna shed old skin there

He's got all his hair, but his life is a wreck
Always been a brat, he don't get no respect
He's got the time, he's got the money baby
You better get out of his way
You better watch out for him, sonny

Back to school
He's gonna take that plunge
Gonna jump back in there
Back to school
He's gonna shape his mind
Gonna shed old skin there
Back to school
He's gonna shape his mind
Gonna shed old skin there
Back to school
Back to school
Back to school
Back to school

He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)

You're with your baby, and you're parked alone
On a summer night, you're deep in love
But you're deeper in the woods
You think you're doin' alright

Did you hear that voice? Did you see that face?
Or was it just a dream, this can't be real
That only happens, babe
On the movie screen

Oh, but he's back
He's the man behind the mask
And he's out of control
He's back
The man behind the mask
And he crawled out of his hole

You're swimmin' with your girl out on lovers' lake
And the wind blows cold. It chills your bones
But you're still on the make
That's a bad mistake

But the moon was full and you had a chance
To be all alone but you're not alone
This is your last dance
And your last romance

Oh, but he's back
He's the man behind the mask
And he's out of control
He's back
The man behind the mask
And he crawled out of his hole

Oh, if you see him comin' get away if you can
Just keep on runnin', run as fast as you can
He's a dangerous, dangerous man
And he's out tonight
And he's watchin' you
And he knows you house
No, don't turn out the lights

Yeah `cause he's back
He's the man behind the mask
And he's out of control
He's back
The man behind the mask
And he`s after your soul
Oh, but he's back
He's the man behind the mask
And he's out of control
He's back
The man behind the mask
And he`s after your soul
He's back
He's the man behind the mask
And he's after your soul
He's back
The man behind the mask
And he`s out of control
