Welcome to the jungle
We got fun n' games 
We got everything you want 
Honey, we know the names 
We are the people that can find 
Whatever you may need 
If you got the money, honey 
We got your disease 

In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees 
I wanna watch you bleed 

Welcome to the jungle 
We take it day by day 
If you want it you're gonna bleed 
But it's the price you pay 
And you're a very sexy girl 
That's very hard to please 
You can taste the bright lights 
But you won't get them for free 
In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Feel my, my, my serpentine 
I, I wanna hear you scream 

Welcome to the jungle 
It gets worse here everyday 
Ya learn ta live like an animal 
In the jungle where we play 
If you got a hunger for what you see 
You'll take it eventually 
You can have anything you want 
But you better not take it from me 

In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Watch it bring you to your 
knees, knees 
I'm gonna watch you bleed 

And when you're high you never 
Ever want to come down, YEAH! 

You know where you are 
You're in the jungle baby 
You're gonna die 
In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees 
In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Feel my, my, my serpentine 
In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees 
In the jungle 
Welcome to the jungle 
Watch it bring you to your 
It' gonna bring you down - HA!

I see your sister in her Sunday dress
She's out to please 
She pouts her best 
She's out to take 
No need to try 
She's ready to make 

It's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby 
It's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me 

Cars are crashin' every night 
I drink n' drive everything's in sight 
I make the fire 
But I miss the firefight 
I hit the bull's eye every night 

It's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby 
Yeah it's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me 
So easy 
But nothin' seems to please me 
It all fits so right 
When I fade into the night 
See me hit you 
You fall down 

I see you standin' there 
You think you're so cool 
Why don't you just 
Fuck off 

Ya get nothin' for nothin' 
If that's what ya do 
Turn around bitch I got a use for you 
Besides you ain't got nothin' better to do 
And I'm bored 

It's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me, baby 
It's so easy, easy 
When everybody's tryin' to please me 
So easy 
But nothin' seems to please me 
It all fits so right 
When I fade into the night 
So come with me 
Don't ask me where 'cause I don't know 
I'll try ta please you 
I ain't got no money but it goes to show 

It's so easy 
So fuckin' easy 
It's so easy 
So damn easy 
It's so easy 
Oh, so fuckin' easy 
It's so easy 
Oh, it's so easy 
It's so easy 
So fuckin' easy 
It's so easy 
YEAH!

Loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane 
Feelin' like a space brain 
One more time tonight 

Well I'm a west coast struttin' 
One bad mother 
Got a rattlesnake suitcase 
Under my arm 
Said I'm a mean machine 
Been drinkin' gasoline 
And honey you can make my motor hum 
Well I got one chance left 
In a nine live cat 
I got a dog eat dog sly smile 
I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go 
I smoke my cigarette with style 
An I can tell you honey 
You can make my money tonight 

Wake up late honey put on your clothes 
Take your credit card to the liquor store 
That's one for you and two for me by tonight 
I'll be loaded like a freight train 
Flyin' like an aeroplane 
Feelin' like a space brain 
One more time tonight 

I'm on the nightrain 
Bottoms up 
I'm on the nightrain 
Fill my cup 
I'm on the nightrain 
Ready to crash and burn 
I never learn 
I'm on the nightrain 
I love that stuff 
I'm on the nightrain 
I can never get enough 
I'm on the nightrain 
Never to return - no 

Loaded like a freight train 
Flyin' like an aeroplane 
Speedin' like a space brain 
One more time tonight 

I'm on the nightrain 
And I'm lookin' for some 
I'm on the nightrain 
So's I can leave this slum 
I'm on the nightrain 
And I'm ready to crash an' burn 
Nightrain 
Bottoms up 
I'm on the nightrain 
Fill my cup 
I'm on the nightrain 

Whoa yeah 
I'm on the nightrain 
Love that stuff 
I'm on the nightrain 
An I can never get enough 
Ridin' the nightrain 
I guess I 
I guess, I guess, I guess I never learn 

On the nightrain 
Float me home 
Ooh I'm on the nightrain 
Ridin' the nightrain 
Never to return 
Nightrain

. . .



Been hidin' out
And layin' low 
It's nothin' new ta me 
Well you can always find a place to go 
If you can keep your sanity 
They break down the doors 
And they rape my rights but 
They won't touch me 
They scream and yell 
And fight all night 
You can't tell me 
I lose my head 
I close my eyes 
They won't touch me 
'Cause I got somethin' 
I been buildin' up inside 
For so fuckin' long 

CHORUS: 

They're out ta get me 
They won't catch me 
I'm fuckin' innocent 
They won't break me 

Sometimes it's easy to forget where you're goin' 
Sometimes it's harder to leave 
And everytime you think you know just what you're doin' 
That's when your troubles exceed 
They push me in a corner 
Just to get me to fight but 
They won't touch me 
They preach and yell 
And fight all night 
You can't tell me 
I lose my head 
I close my eyes 
They won't touch me 
'Cause I got somethin' 
I been buildin' up inside 
I'm already gone 

They're out ta get me 
They won't catch me 
'Cause I'm innocent 
They won't break me 

Some people got a chip on their shoulder 
An some would say it was me 
But I didn't buy that fifth of whisky 
That you gave me 
So I'd be quick to disagree 

CHORUS 

They're out to get me 
They won't catch me 
'Cause I'm innocent 
So you can suck me 
Take that one to heart

. . .



I get up around seven
Get outta bed around nine 
And I don't worry about nothin' no 
Cause worryin's a waste of my ... time 

The show usually starts around seven 
We go on stage around nine 
Get on the bus about eleven 
Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine 

CHORUS: 

We been dancin' with 
Mr. Brownstone 
He's been knockin' 
He won't leave me alone 
No, no, no - oh 
He won't leave me alone 

I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do 
So the little got more and more 
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better 
Said a little better than before 
I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do 
So the little got more and more 
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better 
Said a little better than before 

CHORUS 

Now I get up around whenever 
I used ta get up on time 
But that old man he's a real muthafucker 
Gonna kick him on down the line 

I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do 
So the little got more and more 
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better 
Said a little better than before 
I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do 
So the little got more and more 
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better 
Said a little better than before 

CHORUS

Take me down
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
Take me home 
(back vocals) 
I want you please take me home 
(x 2) 

Just a' urchin livin' under the street 
I'm a hard case that's tough to beat 
I'm your charity case 
So buy me somethin' to eat 
I'll pay you at another time 
Take it to the end of the line 

Ragz to richez or so they say 
Ya gotta-keep pushin' for the fortune and fame 
You know it's 
It's all a gamble 
When it's just a game 
Ya treat it like a capital crime 
Everybody's doin' their time 

Take me down 
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
I want you please take me home 

CHORUS: 

Take me down 
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
Take me home 

Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber 
Why I'm here I can't quite remember 
The surgeon general says it's hazardous to breathe 
I'd have another cigarette but I can't see 
Tell me who you're gonna believe 

CHORUS 

Take me down 
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
I want you please take me home 

So far away 
So far away 
So far away 
So far away 

Captain America's been torn apart 
Now he's a court jester with a broken heart 
He said - 
Turn me around and take me back to the start 
I must be losin' my mind - "Are you blind?" 
I've seen it all a million times 

CHORUS 

Take me down 
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
I want you please take me home 

CHORUS 

Take me down 
To the paradise city 
Where the grass is green 
And the girls are pretty 
I want you please take me home

Your daddy works in porno
Now that mommy's not around 
She used to love her heroin 
But now she's underground 
So you stay out late at night 
And you do your coke for free 
Drivin' your friends crazy 
With your life's insanity 

Well, well, well you just can't tell 
Well, well, well my Michelle 
LOOK OUT! 

Sowin' all your wild oats 
In another's luxuries 
Yesterday was Tuesday 
Maybe Thursday you can sleep 
But school starts much too early 
And this hotel wasn't free 
So party till your connection call 
Honey I'll return the key 

CHORUS: 

Well, well, well you just can't tell 
Well, well, well my Michelle 
Well, well, well you never can tell 
Well, well, well my Michelle 

Everyone needs love 
You know that it's true 
Someday you'll find someone 
That'll fall in love with you 
But oh the time it takes 
When you're all alone 
Someday you'll find someone 
That you can call your own 
But till then ya better... 

Now you're clean 
And so discreet 
I won't say a word 
But most of all this song is true 
Case you haven't heard 
So c'mon and stop your cryin' 
'Cause we both know money burns 
Honey don't stop tryin; 
An you'll get what you deserve 

CHORUS

. . .



I say baby you been lookin' real good
You know that I remember when we met 
It's funny how it never felt so good 
It's a feelin' that I know 
I know I'll never forget 
Ooh it was the best time I can remember 
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever 

There wasn't much in this heart of mine 
There was a little left and babe you found it 
It's funny how I never felt so high 
It's a feelin' that I know 
I know I'll never forget 
Ooh it was the best time I can remember 
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever 

I think about you 
Honey all the time my heart says yes 
I think about you 
Deep inside I love you best 
I think about you 
You know you're the one I want 
I think about you 
Darlin' you're the only one 
I think about you 

I think about you 
You know that I do 
I think about you all alone 
Only of you 
I think about you 
Ooh it's true 
I think about you 
Yes I do 

Somethin' changed in this heart of mine 
You know that I'm so glad that ya showed me 
Funny now you're my best friend 
An' I wanna stay together to the very end 
Ooh it was the best time I can remember 
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever 

I think about you 
Honey all the time my heart says yes 
I think about you 
Deep inside I love you best 
I think about you 
You know you're the one I want 
I think about you 
Darlin' you're the only one 
I think about you

She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories 
Where everything 
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky 
Now and then when I see her face 
She takes me away to that special place 
And if I stared too long 
I'd probably break down and cry 

Sweet child o' mine 
Sweet love of mine 

She's got eyes of the bluest skies 
As if they thought of rain 
I hate to look into those eyes 
And see an ounce of pain 
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place 
Where as a child I'd hide 
And pray for the thunder 
And the rain 
To quietly pass me by 

Sweet child o' mine 
Sweet love of mine 

Where do we go 
Where do we go now 
Where do we go 

Where do we go 
Oh, where do we go now 
Where do we go 
Oh, where do we go now 
Oh, where do we go now 
Oh, where do we go 
Oh, where do we go now 
Where do we go 
Oh, where do we go now 
Where do we go 
Oh, where do we go now 
No, no, no, no, no, no, no 
Sweet child 
Sweet child o' mine

. . .



I been lookin' for a trace
Lookin' for a heart 
Lookin' for a lover in a world that's much too dark 
You don't want my love 
You want satisfaction, oh yeah 
You don't need my love 
You gotta find yourself another 
Piece of the action, yeah 

Said where you goin' 
What you gonna do 
I been lookin' everywhere 
I been lookin' for you 

You don't want my love 
You want satisfaction 
I got your satisfaction 
You don't need my love 
You gotta find yourself another 
Piece of the action 
'Cause you're crazy 
You're fuckin' crazy 
Ya know you're crazy 
I said you're crazy 

Say boy where ya comin' from 
Where'd ya get that point of view 
When I was younger 
Said I knew someone like you 
And they said 
You don't want my love 
You want satisfaction, yeah 
You don't need my love 
You gotta find yourself another 
Piece of the action 
'Cause you're crazy 
You're fuckin' crazy 
Ya know you're crazy 
I said you're crazy 
Ooh you're crazy 
You know you're crazy 
Well you're crazy 
You know you're crazy, ooh 

You know you are 
Bring it down 
You're fuckin' crazy

. . .



I been thinkin' 'bout
Thinkin' 'bout sex 
Always hungry for somethin' 
That I haven't had yet 
Maybe baby you got somethin' to lose 
Well I got somethin', I got somethin' for you 

My way-your way 
Anything goes tonight 
My way-your way 
Anything goes 

Panties 'round your knees 
With your ass in debris 
Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze 
Tied up, tied down, up against the wall 
Be my rubbermade baby 
An' we can do it all 

My way-your way 
Anything goes tonight

. . .



If I say I don't need anyone
I can say these things to you 'cause 
I can turn on anyone 
Just like I've turned on you 
I've got a tongue like a razor 
A sweet switchblade knife 
And I can do you favors 
But then you'll do whatever I like 

CHORUS: 

Here I am 
And you're a Rocket Queen 
I might be a little young 
But Honey I ain't naive 
Here I am 
And you're a Rocket Queen oh yeah 
I might be too much 
But honey you're a bit obscene 

I've seen everything imaginable 
Pass before these eyes 
I've had everything that's tangible 
Honey you'd be suprised 
I'm a sexual innuendo 
In this burned out paradise 
If you turn me on to anything 
You better turn me on tonight 

CHORUS (x 2) 

I see you standin' 
Standin' on your own 
It's such a lonely place for you 
For you to be 
If you need a shoulder 
Or if you need a friend 
I'll be here standing 
Until the bitter end 
No one needs the sorrow 
No one needs the pain 
I hate to see you 
Walking out there 
Out in the rain 
So don't chastise me 
Or think I, I mean you harm 
Of those that take you 
Leave you strung out 
Much too far 
Baby - yeah 

Don't ever leave me 
Say you'll always be there 
All I ever wanted 
Was for you 
To know that I care
