Alternate/Unreleased Lyrics

Over the years various lyric sheets have surfaces that sometime feature alternate lyrics or even un-recorded songs. Here`s just a few of them. There are more out there so if anybody has any let me know!


Luney Tune - Early Version

It all in the scheme
It's all in this crazy dream
Just a little insane
It's all in this luney tune
When can I give in
When I wake up I see a ghost
You're all in my fear
Now who are these scary men
is this all real
is this all true
Or is it a joke

Don't you know
I thought that I need you alone
Don't you know
I tried to explain your crisis
Show me my instinct
I hope you knowshow me the door
I just can't take it no more
Well, it's not in our show
Please bishop he feels no pain (?)
Where all would we go (?)
Where are we stupid lord (?)

Ballad Of Dwight Fry - Early Version

I was gone for 14 days, I might have been gone for more
Held up in some cheap motel room lying on the floor
I was gone for 14 days, might have been gone for more
Held up in a cheap motel room lying on the floor
See my lonely wife explode when I come home late
See my lonely wife explode when I've gone away

Got my hat and i got my coat, I walked down to the street
I saw a man that was choking there, I guess he couldn't breathe
I said to myself this is very strange, very strange indeed
Someone there tapped me on the shoulder, he said he wanted rain

See my lonely wife explode when I come home late

See my lonely wife explode when I've gone away
See my lonely wife explode when I come home late

You Drive Me Nervous - Early Version

Wow you, you seem so civilised
When all the time you never realised
Well, in your mind you were telling lies all the time
Times you tried to drive them mad
Times you tried to make them sad
Well, in your mind you were telling lies all the time
So she said
You drive me nervous, nervous
It's so unfair

You drive me nervous, nervous, nervous wow
Nervous, nervous, nervous, nervous wow-oo-wow

Wow you, you seem so civilsed
When all the time you never realised
Well, in your mind you were telling lies all the time
Wow-oo, aa-ah, yeah-eh, yeah!

You drive me nervous
You drive me nervous
You drive me nervous
Oh-oo.

Desperado - Original version

Desert night thing I feel you near me
Wrestling through the dark half asleep
Hot and dusty, the lightning thundering
Desert night thing Come crashing by

Tell me where is the world I'm going
I've been waiting much too long
Do I hear Tornado warning
As I gaze into my palm

T trees are blowing and softly calling
To get winds blow up on my bed
Dreaming in and I'm listening deeply
Acoyote is start to race

Flashing crashing headlight beaming
Shotgun explosion blasting loud
Tell me where is this madness ending
Desert night thing tell me now
bom bom b-bom

Fflashing crashing headlight beaming
Shotgun explosion blasting loud
Tell me where is this madness ending
Desert night thing tell me now
Hey tell me now
So tell me now.

Girl You're Still Nowhere - Early unreleased song

You`ll say you'll give me money, 'cause it`s not what I want
Some things you just can`t buy
Just give me _ _ _ That is all (modern) love
She`d give a man her blood, no lie

But if I have to ask you if you love me
Why can`t you ever tell me that you care
Things they better quickly be a changing
cos girl you`re still nowhere
Girl you`re still nowhere

But if I have to ask you if you love me
Why can`t you ever tell me that you care
Things they better quickly be a changing
cos girl you`re still nowhere
Girl you`re still nowhere

Still Nowhere
Still Nowhere
Still Nowhere

Sing Low Sweet Cherrio - Early Rehearsal Version

"Tickets, tickets, tickets please"
A man yelled from the train
I passed along the sidewalk
As thoughts flashed through my brain
Well I got upon the railroad car
As other times before
It's wheels of steel begin to turn
Conductor close the door

But this story starrin' me had already begun
'Cause I had my ticket in my hand
On a train trip just for fun
"Help me, help me, help me please"

My voice rang from the train
I searched and searched, myself beside
Nobody else to blame
I left home on those railroad tracks to find somewhere to hide

But leavin' death, and leaving hearth a little of me died [This is a bit of a
dodge line, as it was hard to make out what he was saying for sure]
Right then my story ended and a new one had begun
Of a lonely man with nothing more
On a train trip just for fun

Love At Your Convienience - Unreleased early draft version by Dick Wagner

You`ve got me in your hands and it's more then I can take
'Cause when you're close to me I got a feelin' that is hard to shake
I know that I want you but it won't be give and take

I'll give you Love at your convenience
Anytime, I don`t care
I'll go anywhere - 'cause you're a lover
Love at your convenience
Can you find some time to share
I'll go anywhere - 'cause you're a lover

I never sleep at night, I'm a spring that won't unwind
And it's a miracle thet your kisses take me so damn high
Whenever you want me you will never stand in line

I'll give you Love at your convenience
Anytime, I don`t care
I'll go anywhere - 'cause you're a lover
Love at your convenience
Can you find some time to share
I'll go anywhere - 'cause you're a lover

Bad Angel - Unreleased track (part only - not easy to read from Alice's hand writing)

You used to smell(?) me thru the celler or a locked door
Now I'm a horny puff of smoke coming through your floor
I'm a hell of an angel
You better believe it's me
I got some black leather wings
And a halo to match
I'd like to give you my love
But I'm sorta detched
If I could strip(?) your ? bite
We'd ...???

The World Is An Evil Place - Early hand written lyrics that became Brutal Planet

This is such a brutal planet
This is such a living hell
This used to be the garden of eden
This is right where Adam fell
This is where the bite was taken
And this is where we chose to sin
This is where we first were naked
This is where our death begins

Over there we stoned the prophets
And built some idols out of mud
and men there we fed the lions
Christian flesh and Christian blood
Over there we filled the river
Over there their holocaust
Down the street is where we hung him
On an ugly wooden cross

Here is where we keep the armies
Here's where we priase their name
Here's where all the money got us
Here our famous hall of shame
Here's where we starve the hungry
Here's where we cheat the poor
Here's where we hurt the children
Here's the old ones we ignored

Guilty - hand written with extra verse.

Just tried to have fun
Raising and then some
I'm a dirt-talkin', beer drinkin', woman chasin' minister's son
Slap on the make-up
and blast out the music
Wake up the neighbors with a roar like a teenage heavy metal elephant gun

If you call that guilty then that's what I am
I'm guilty
I'm guilty

Like driving too fast
Love going too far
It seems the law's on my ass every time I stick it out of the door

I got dirty fingers
'Cause I play with te garbage
I carry a big stick 'cause one in the bush sure beats two in the hand

If you call that guilty then that's what I am
I'm guilty
I'm guilty

It's Hot Tonight - Hand written early version

It's hot tonight
Too hot for talking
It's hot tonight

We burn tonight
We sweat, no sleeping
It's hot tonight

Dogs are barkin'
Cat's are screaming
Streets are steaming
God's own heat the devils demon

I'm hot tonight
You make it hotter
Real hot tonight

We touch tonight
I'm set on fire
It's hot tonight

Steaming nights they make you lazy
But you make me crazy

It Takes A Little Time - Unreleased Michael Bruce handwriten lyrics

Give me just a little time my friend
And I will tell you how I have been
I feel so out of place, life is so hard to face
Give me just a little time my friend

People that I've know are not the same
I wonder if I am the one to blame
I was not good, not kind but now I`ve changed my mond
Give me just a little time my friend

It is not hard to see, what has come of me
?(a name?) finally made me see the light
She is so good to me, people are going to see
That now I care and yes will treat her right

And if you`re puzzled why I'm telling this to you
I would have to tell you ? through what I'm telling you
Remember what I had to say, think about it everyday
It takes a little time you know my friend

hmm - fade out

Scenes From The Silver Screen - Hand written early draft

Laying in the back seat in a rented cadillac
Rollin' down old sunset strip doing unnatural acts
She was half way on the floor, I was on my back
In a scene from silver screen

We both get paid
100 dollars a day
With all kinds of fringe benefits
I mean we both get laid
Get those cameras focused now
And get out of our...
It's a scene from the silver screen

Those Hollywood movies keep flashin' before my eyes
I could have been Valentino if I'd been born in another time

Frankly Scarlett I don`t give a damn

Be A Model Citizen - Various early ideas. These were jotted on a notepad in such a way as to make getting a set order is impossible. They were obviously just random ideas for what would become Model Citizen on Flush The Fashion. I've written them in sections as they appear on the original but there is no obvious intended verse order. The document is dates June 23, 1979 and signed by Alice

None Will Walk Away - Unreleased Michael Bruce Lyric

The boys are in the back of a black limousine
On the way to a gig gonna make(come) and scream
Everywhere we go our names in lights
We've grown to love this kind of life

Promotor got us booked solid
With little stars upon our door
100,000.00 thousand people calling out for more

D.J.`s on the pulse of the music scene
Say we're the strangest act the world has ever seen
We're smashing (breaking) records oll over the land
We got a funny sort of rock n' roll band

Promotors in the backstage
He's counting $100 dollar bills
Girls are chasing us everywhere
They've come to get their thrills

Our new records streaking right for the top
Shot with a bullet man it's never going to stop
Ya hear our tunes everywhere you go
Nothing can stop us now we're in control

Promotor at the station
With a payoff in his hand
He's doing business with the newsmen

Chemical Reaction - Unreleased Track From 'Hey Stoopid'

I got some teeth so let me bite
I got two arms to hold you tight
I got a spell to put you in
I got some lips to kiss your skin
(I said oh....., I said oh......, I said oh...... yeah)

You're just a chemical reaction
A shock to the system
A cardiac sensation
A chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Chemical reaction
My Satisfaction

You got a take(?) so let me de taste(??)
You got some time for me to waste
You got some nights for me to kill
You got some space for me to fill
(I said oh....., I said oh......, I said oh...... )

You're just a chemical reaction
A shock to the system
A cardiac sensation
A chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Chemical reaction
My Satisfaction

I won't be tying up your private line
I won't be climbng up your creeping vine
I won't be sending any valentine
It's just a one night thing

You're just a chemical reaction
A shock to the system
A cardiac sensation
You're just a chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Uh..

I won't be running to you when you call
Won't try to catch you, baby, if you fall
I'll tell you filthy lies on pentathol
It's just a one night thing

I got a need and you're my fix
I need you round to get my kicks
Your bed is made all neat and tucked
You need me there to mess it up

You're just a chemical reaction
A shock to the system
A cardiac sensation
A chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Chemical reaction
My satisfaction
Chemical reaction

We Have Problems (Alice Cooper, Joe Perry) - Unreleased Track from 1983

We got cops thats always breaking down our doors
They pin us to the wall and on the floors
If alarms go off in any local stores

We got problems, problems, problems

We got a TV preacher swears that we're the beast
'cause our music is offensive to the priest
And condems is to eternal hell at least

Oh we got problems...
Oh we got problems...

We got aggregation - agitation and 45's
So I got a feeling we'll survive

We hang around in parking lots and bars
That's where we dance and crank up our guitars
And dress up like a bunch of stolen cars
We're sticky, We're sweaty cause we're hot
We run the streets all night until we're caught
But tomorrow night we're back like a shot
