One time you were my baby chicken,
Now you've grown into a fox,
Once upon a time,
I was your little rooster,
But now I'm just one of your cocks.

(CHOURS)
It's rough justice on ya,
You're gonna have to trust me,
It's rough justice on ya,
But you know i'll never break your heart,

So put your lips to my hips baby,
And tell me what's on your mind,
I know you still got that,
Animal attraction for me,
Been a long time,

(CHOURS)

You're felling loose and lusty,
So if you really want me,
It's Rough Justice,
But you know i'll never,
Break your heart,

(CHOURS)

First time I saw you baby,
You were springing like a young gazelle,
Next thing I know,
Way down the road,
You're flying like a bat out of hell,

(CHOURS)

I'll give you my position,
Don't want no opposition,
It's Rough Justice,
But you know i'll never break your heart.

. . .


You look a little dressed up
You're acting way too smart
Your face a little bit flushed
For a walk in the park

And you're clutching your phone
As you walk in the dark
And your smile's got a twist
You're looking so hardcore

If you've something to say
Don't be too direct
'Cause I feel a little fragile
Don't hit the nail on the head

Why I said, baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh no no no
Why I said, baby, baby, let me down real slow
No no no

There's a swish in your step
There's a gleam in your eye
Are you coloring your hair
With some new kind of dye

The first one to blink
Is the first one to fall
I don't want a confrontation
I've got my back to the wall

Oh I said baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh no no no
Why I said, baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh na na no

I said baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh no no no
I said let me strech out in the afterglow
Oh na na na now I gotta go

Let me down real slow
Oh na na na
Baby, let me down real slow

. . .


Baby it won't take long to forget you
Time it passes fast
It'll all be over in a minute
You'll be in the past

You can lose the love of a lifetime
In a single roll
You can gain a fortune in an instant
Or you can lose your soul

And it won't take long to forget ya
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over in a minute
And it won't take long

And it won't take long to forgive ya
But it's hard to forget
'Cause it seems like it's yesterday
The day that we first met

When you give me a smouldering look and
Put out your cigarette
When I saw you come sauntering over
You wore a pale blue dress

And it won't take long to forget ya
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over in a minute
And it won't take long

Life is short, one look and it's over
Comes as quite a shock
All I got is some memories
Stuck in an old shoebox

And it won't take long to forget ya
You know I'm never wrong
It'll all be over by Christmas
No, it won't take long

It won't take long
It won't take long
It won't take long
It won't take long

It won't take long, it won't take long
It won't take long
It won't take long
It won't take long

Rolling Stones - Rain Fall Down

was a filthy block of flats
Trash was on the floor
A stink was in my nose
Hinges off the doors

She took me in her room
All was spic and span
Fixed me up a drink
Turned down all the lamps

And the rain fell down
On the cold hard ground
And the phone kept ringing
And we made sweet love

Why do we live in this strange grey town
They build it up and let it all fall down
Feel like we're living in a battleground
Everybody's jazzed

Why do we live in this strange grey town
The paint is peeling and the sky turned brown
The bankers are wankers, every Thursday night
They just vomit on the ground

And the rain fell down
On the cold grey town
And the phone kept ringing
And we made sweet love (2X)

Everybody's dreaming
Everybody's scheming
Until the rain fall down

She cooked me up some eggs
Then she made some tea
Kissed me on the cheek
And I turned on her TV

It was all the usual crap
All the usual sleaze
For ten thousand quid
Some bimbo spilled the beans, yeah

And the rain fell down
On the cold grey town
And the phone kept ringing
And we made sweet love (2X)

And the rain fell down
And we made, and we made, and we made sweet love
And the phone kept, the phone kept ringing...yeah!

Yeah
And the phone kept ringing
The phone kept ringing, yeah
And the rain...rain...rain... (repeat until fade out)

. . .


Youґre awful bright
Youґre awful smart
I must admit
You broke my heart
The awful truth
Is really sad
I must admit
I was awful bad
While lovers laugh
And music plays
I stumble by
And hide my pain
Mmmm, the lamps are lit
The moon is gone
I think Iґve crossed
The Rubicon

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walk the streets of love
And theyґre full of tears

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walked the streets of love
And they are full of fears

While music pumps
From passing cars
A couple watch me from a bar
A band just played
The wedding march
And the corner store
Mends broken hearts
And a woman asks me for a dance
Oooooh, itґs free of charge
Just one more chance

OOhh, but I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walk the streets of love
And theyґre full of tears
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walk the streets of love
For a thousand years... Oh...tell me now...Ahh...

I walk the streets of love, and theyґre drenched with tears, ohhh...

You had the moves
You had the cards
I must admit
You were awful smart
The awful truth
Is awful sad
I must admit
I was awful bad

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walk the streets of love
And theyґre drenched in tears

And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
I walk the streets of love
For a thousand years

Ohh, And I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Walk the streets of love
And theyґre drenched with tears


. . .


I hear a preacher on the corner
Ranting like a crazy man
He says that trouble, troubles are coming
I can read it like the back of my hand

I see love, I see misery
Jamming side by side on the stage
In the wind, some mournful melody
I can read it like the back of my hand

The back of my hand
Oh yeah

Oh yeah

I see dreams, I see visions
Images I don't understand
I see Goya's paranoias
I can read it like the back of my hand
Read it like the ah, ah, ah, ah

Well, read it like the back of my hand
Oh yeah, woah yeah
Woah yeah
Read it like the back of my hand

. . .


She saw me coming
She saw me coming, yeah
She saw me coming
I didn't see a thing
I wasn't looking
I just walked into it

A sucker for it, I'm a sucker
Thought I was so cool
She saw me coming
Boy did I get screwed, yeah

She saw me coming
She had me dead to right
Her aim was stunning
I was lined up in her sites

She worked so fast
And she didn't mess around
It was all over
'Fore the sun go down, 'fore the sun go down

She saw me coming, yeah
She saw me coming

She saw me coming
She moved in for the kill
She saw me coming
She served up on a grill

She busted in
And she burglerized my soul
But now the bad news
She's out on parole

She wrote the opening
The middle and the end
What a cast of characters
Of lovers and my friends

The plot was twisted
There was only one result
She saw me coming
But the going, going got too tough

She saw me coming
Yeah, yes she did
She saw me coming
Right on the grid, right on the grid

She saw me coming
Oh, what a stupid jerk
She saw me coming
She was a piece of work

She must have tapped my phone
She saw me coming
I felt like I was cloned

She saw me coming
She had me on the ropes
She saw me coming
Took me for a dope

She saw me coming
Yes she did, yes she did
She saw me coming
She saw me coming

. . .


When love comes so late, it'll really hit hard
It slams through the gate, it'll catch you off guard
Everyone said, "What a perfect love match
'Cause she is so smart, she's a hell of a catch"

I was drinking in love, gulping it down
Drifting for months on a billowing cloud
But after awhile I stopped to rebel
I'm back in the past and I'm raising up hell

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

We'd been living together for over a year
The harmony's perfect, it rang loud and clear
But then very slowly, my nerves start to fray
It's the little things honey, that's what they say

I acted impatient, I acted unkind
I took her for granted, I played with her mind
She didn't deserve it but it was too late
I walked out the door and left her to her fate

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo

Now I'm down in a slump and I'm eating alone
I ruined the day with some friends on the phone
I never go out, I'm becoming a grouch
I just watch the TV and I drink on the couch

But if love comes again, I'll be really surprised
I'll grab it real fast, keep it right in my sights

'Cause I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo

. . .


Walk right in, sit on down
And make yourself at home
Come on baby, you're just like me
And you hate to be alone

It's funny how things go around
It's crazy but it's true
This place is empty, oh so empty
It's empty without you

Come on, bare your breasts
And make me feel at home
You and me we're just like all the rest
And we don't want to be alone

It's funny how things go around
But go around they do
This place is empty, empty
So empty without you

Yeah, this place is empty, empty
So empty without you
Oh yeah, mmm
It's empty without you

Come on, simmer down
And treat me sweet and cool
At least by now you, you have learned
How to love a fool

It's funny how things turn around
It's crazy but it's true
This place is empty, so empty
So empty without you

This place is empty, oh so empty
So empty without you

. . .


Here you stand before me
Waiting to be kissed
You're a beauty, such a cutie
How could I resist

It's been a month of Sundays
Since we last had spoke
So much water, you get dollars
I fell out the boat

Oh no, not you again
Fucking up my life
It was bad the first time
I can't stand it twice

Oh no, not you again
I can't stand the pace
Once bitten, twice shy
Get me out of the race

The setting's so romantic
Love is in the air
All is perfect but I'm allergic
To your business stares

You look so cool and tempting
In your couture dress
You're addictive, as predicted
I'm nervous, I confess

Oh no, not you again
Mashing up my life
It was bad the first time, yeah
You had me in a vice

Oh no, not you again
I hear ya and I shout
It was bad the first time around
When you turned me inside out

Everybody's talking
Showing up their wits
The moon is yellow but I'm like jello
Staring down your tits

My life flashes forward
Then it flashes back
I'm still dreaming and I'm screaming
"Get me off the rack!"

Oh no, not you again
I can't stand the pain
I was burned the first time, yeah
I can't deal it again

Oh no, not you again
Messing up my life, yeah
Once bitten, twice shy
But I can't do it twice

Oh no, not you again
Fucking up my life
It was bad first time around
I better take my own advice

Oh no, oh no, oh nooooo!

. . .


In your high school photo
You looked so young and naïve
Now I heard you got a nickname
"The Lady with the Leash"

Was it funny on the midnight shift
I bet you had your fair share of stiffs
There were onerous odors
I've got to admit

'Cause you're a dangerous, dangerous
A dangerous beauty
It's so plainfully plain to us
You're doing your duty

Who you got there in that hood
You look so fancy in those photographs
With your rubber gloves on
You're a favorite with the Chiefs of Staff

You're doing such a wonderful job
You're a natural at working with dogs
Keeping everyone awake at night
With a touch of the prods

Well you're a dangerous, dangerous
A dangerous beauty
Yeah, disdainfully, painfully
A bit of booty, yeah

You're a dangerous, dangerous
A dangerous beauty
Beauty

Well you're a dangerous, dangerous
A dangerous beauty
If I was your captain
Would you salute me?

Well you're a dangerous, dangerous
A dangerous beauty
What I say?
Yeah everybody
Beauty
Everybody now, yeah

Are you one bad apple in a box
Yeah, dangerous
Dealing out electric shocks
I've seen the gloves coming off

Dangerous
If looks could be killing
I bet you shoot me now

. . .


I've been travelling but I don't know where
I've been missing you but you just don't care
And I've been wandering, I've seen Greece and Rome
Lost in the wilderness, so far from home, yeah yeah

I've been to Africa, looking for my soul
And I feel like an actor looking for a role
I've been in Arabia, I've seen a million stars
Been sipping champagne on the boulevards, yes

I'm so sick and tired
Trying to turn the tide, yeah
So I'll say my goodbye
Laugh, laugh, I nearly died

I've been down to India, but it froze my bones
I'm living for the city, but I'm all alone
I've been travelling, but I don't know where
I've been wandering, but I just don't care

I hate to be denied
How you hurt my pride
I feel pushed aside
But laugh, laugh, laugh, I nearly died

Been travelling far and wide
Wondering who's going to be my guide
Been travelling far and wide
Wondering who's going to be my guide

Living in a fantasy but it's way too far
But this kind of loneliness is way too hard
I've been wandering, feeling all alone
I lost my direction and I lost my home, well

I'm so sick and tired, yeah
Now I'm on the side
Feeling so despised
When you laugh, laugh, I almost died

(Been travelling far and wide) Oh, yeah
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)
I hurt my pride, hurt my pride, hurt my pride

(Been travelling far and wide)
Been travelling, yeah
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)

(Been travelling far and wide)
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)
Been traveling, yeah

(Been travelling far and wide)
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)
(Been travelling far and wide)
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)

(Been travelling far and wide)
(Wondering who's going to be my guide)
(Been travelling far and wide)

. . .


You call yourself a Christian
I think that you're a hypocrite
You say you are a patriot
I think that you're a crock of shit

And listen, I love gasoline
I drink it every day
But it's getting very pricey
And who is gonna pay?

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con.... Yeah

It's liberty for all
'Cause democracy's our style
Unless you are against us
Then it's prison without trial

But one thing that is certain
Life is good at Haliburton
If you're really so astute
You should invest at Brown & Root, yeah

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
If you turn out right
I'll eat my hat tonight

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah....

It's getting very scary
Yes, I'm frightened out of my wits
There's bombers in my bedroom
Yeah and it's giving me the shits

We must have loads more bases
To protect us from our foes
Who needs these foolish friendships
We're going it alone

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
Where's the money gone?
In the Pentagon

Yeah ha ha ha
Yeah, well, well

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Neo con

. . .


I know that you like to go out drinking
And you love to have a good time
You came in when I was drinking coffee
Having breakfast on a bad night

I won't interrogate you and I never will berate you
About your lifestyle
But where you've been
Lost weekend

What's that look on your face
It must have been the walk of shame
Your eyes are all red, get ready for bed
Your hair's all over the place

And look what the cat dragged in
Don't you call me a friend
Get out of my house with your dirty old mouth
Take yourself out again

Look what the cat dragged in
Yeah, you take it right out again
Yeah, look what the cat dragged in
Yeah, take it right out again

Looking at the Sunday papers up with all the latest
It was so quiet
Checking what was going on in Syria and Lebanon
A bad fright, bad fright

Ain't going to criticize you and I hate to ostracize you
What a bad night
Where you've been?
Lost weekend

You look like your totally spaced
Your breath's got a horrible taste
You look like a leper, dressed as Sergeant Pepper
Are you going to throw up all over my face

Look what the cat dragged in
Take it right out again
Get out of my house with your dirty old mouth
Take it right out again

Look what the cat dragged in
Well, take it right out again
Look what the cat dragged in
Yeah, take it right out again

Well, look what the cat dragged in
Yeah, never do that my friend
Well, look what the cat dragged in
Look what the cat, look what the cat, look what the cat dragged in

. . .


You can follow the road to the mountain
Or the track leading down to the beach
You can go where you like, go left or go right
It's you in the driver's seat

But if the rain starts swamping your windscreen
And the lights don't piss through the night
And the truck's coming at you, just going to splat you
The highway's blinding bright

You're going out of your brain, out of your mind
You're so deranged, you're going blind

You're driving too fast
You went straight past the curve and you never go back
Yeah, driving too fast
The road was a blur and it all turned to black
Driving too fast
Hang on to the wheel, I think you're going to crash

You can see the freeway dividing
It's a pity you can't take 'em both
One leads to the valley or down some blind alley
The other runs down to the coast

Too many roads lead to nowhere
But how they twist and they turn
And a dead end and a dusty old strip mall
Where your tires are all shredded and burned

You're going out of your brain, out of your mind
Going insane, you're going blind, yeah

You're driving too fast
You slip through the curve and your slam through the flat
Driving too fast
Now you never go back, yeah

Driving too fast
Yeah and it's all time to pass, yeah
You're driving too fast
Hang on for your life, I think you're going to crash

You're going out of your brain, out of your mind, yeah
You're so deranged, you're going blind

Driving too fast
You went straight past the turn and you'll never go back
Driving too fast
You slid through the curve and you burn up the track

Driving too fast
You're running out of gas
Driving too fast
Hang on to the wheel, I think we're going to crash

Yeah
Driving too fast, yeah

. . .


Don't you know you've got it in for me
I knew it right from the start
I'm still learning my lines baby
Since you've rewritten my part

Oh why have you got it in for me
Things they are not what they seem
You're living in a nightmare baby
But I mistook it for a dream

Yeah just for a dream
But I mistook it all for a dream, yeah
You've got it in for me
You've got it in for me

I know you've got it in for me
You didn't miss a thing
It's you that wrote the song, baby
But me who's got to sing

I knew you had it in for me
Where you take it from here?
We got along so famously
This time you've made it clear, yeah

You made it very, very clear
You made it abundantly clear

You've got it in for me
I knew it right from the start
You've already convicted me
Why are you hard on my heart?

Ooh you're right on my heart
Oh yes so hard
So hard on my heart (you got it in for me)
Ooh in for me, baby (you got it in for me)
Why, baby, why baby why? (you got it in for me)
All you want to do is wipe the floor with me (you got it in for me)
Come on - why, baby, why? (you got it in for me)
Hmm (you got it in for me)
Right from the start (you got it in for me)
Yes you've got it in for me (you got it in for me)
In for me right from the start (you got it in for me)
I should have seen it coming (you got it in for me)
Ahh (you got it in for me)
Fine, fine heart (you got it in for me)
Ooh yeah (you got it in for me)
