Skladba Bruce Lee vyšla v roce 1989 jako třetí skladba na CD-singlu "Room At The Top"

Bruce Lee

like to meet a panzer division
rolling down the autobahn
like the zones of heading escapers
of the boom-boom seventies girls

there's something funny going on
I don't know what it is
there's something funny going on
guess it's just showbizz

Bruce Lee
the fist and the pillow
Bruce Lee
the magical one
took his body for a work of art
Bruce Lee
number three son

like a napalm party on the Mekong
for a number one good time
like ticket for a ride to the other side
tune in freak out get beaten

there's something funny going on
I don't know what it is
there's something funny going on
guess it's just showbizz

Bruce Lee
the fist and the pillow
Bruce Lee
the magical one
took his body for a work of art
Bruce Lee
number three son

sists of iron, fists of steel
too much too soon did you bite the spoon
or rub them up the wrong way

like the singer who fell from grace with the 'bizz
snd turned into a punchbag
like the samurai ducking the wires
hiding his head with a fan

there's something funny going on
I don't know what it is
there's something funny going on
guess it's just showbizz

Bruce Lee
the fist and the pillow
Bruce Lee
the magical one
took his body for a work of art
Bruce Lee
number three son

Vyšlo na singlu "Can't Set Rules Of Love"

How To Steal The World

there's a girl I know, so the story goes
where she's in bed and the fashion shows
she's a major new discovery
an 'eighties Statue of Liberty

she's a girl with a plan
with a big, bold plan
how to steal the world
how to steal the world

there's a girl I know, if the truth be told
every inch of her is worth it's weight in gold
she wears glasses, she sees perfectly
don't deal in flesh, but in fantasy

she's a girl with a plan
with a big, bold plan
how to steal the world
how to steal the world
fire!

she's a girl with a plan
with a big, bold plan
how to steal the world
how to steal the world

there's a girl I know and her name's Diane
she says she'll do it and you know she can
from tip to toe, it's a big 6'3"
eats chocolates from a heart-shaped box, incidentally

she's a girl with a plan
with a big, bold plan
how to steal the world
how to steal the world

she's a girl with a plan
with a big, bold plan
how to steal the world
how to steal the world
fire!

what's it to have pride?
what's it to have power?
she's a rocket ship at zero hour
zero hour
zero hour

Goes Around

well, you walk the walk
and you smile the smile
you don't care who you hurt
as long as it's me

well you play the part
and you tear my heart
you don't care who you hurt,
as long as it's me

is that any way to behave?
is that any way to behave?
is that any way to behave, I ask you?

and I believe
what goes around comes around
goes around
and I believe
what goes around comes around

well, you talk the talk
and smile the smile
you don't care who you hurt
as long as it's me

and you play the part
and you take my heart
you don't care what you take,
as long as it's free!

is that any way to behave?
is that any way to behave?
is that any way to behave, I ask you?

and I believe
what goes around comes around
goes around
and I believe
what goes around comes around

and if you think you turned me over
you'd better look over your shoulder!
and if you think it's all right
the guys are watching you, you, you!

and I believe
what goes around comes around
goes around
and I believe
what goes around comes around
goes around
and I believe
what goes around comes around

Norman

"well, step into my parlor"
said the spider to the fly
"it's really very comfy
but wake up now it's time to die"

"ohhh ... step into my parlor"
said the spider to the fly
"it's really very comfy
but now it's time to die"

N-norman was quite nice
but he had this other side
he couldn't lie to Mother
'cos Mother never lied
Norman

they say it's very healthy
to let our feeling go
but sometimes you can end up
97 feet below

"ohhh ... step into my parlor"
said the spider to the fly
"it's really very comfy
but now it's time to die"

N-norman was quite nice
but he had this other side
he couldn't lie to Mother
'cos Mother never lied
Norman

when things start to happen
much crazier than hell
be careful when you stay
down at the Bates Motel

"ohhh ... step into my parlor"
said the spider to the fly
"it's really very comfy
but now it's time to die"

N-norman was quite nice
but he had this other side
he couldn't lie to Mother
'cos Mother never lied

"ohhh ... step into my parlor"
said the spider to the fly
"it's really very comfy
but now it's time to die"

N-norman was quite nice
but he had this other side
he couldn't lie to Mother
'cos Mother never lied

Woman Love Run Through Me

so glad you could make it
so glad you were here
and if you never lied to me
you have nothin' to fear

I don't care where you're goin,
I don't care where you went
because I think we've got a case of
my last will and testament

so tell me that you love me
tell me that you care
I don't wanna read it
in Vanity Fair

let's make this real simple,
let's clear away the fog
because I think we've got a case here of
the tail waggin the dog, ohhhh

shut up, shut up oooh ...

it took me 9 months to get older
for all my apparent sins
it took me 9 months to get out of it
the rest of my life tryin' to get back in, ahaha

truth is not a strong point
truth is your offense
so, if you wanna talk to me
stop usin' the past-tense

I'm sick of all your problems
I'm sick of your bad luck
so if we ever meet again
then I suggest that you should duck, ohhhh

If

if I had two cents to rub together
I'd rub 'em on you
I'd rub 'em on you, sweet you
if I had a dream to dream forever
I'd dream about you
I'd dream about you, sweet you

and it's a world of sacrifice
it's true, so true
oh, and so very deep your love
all of my love
all of my love

and if I had to go to the moon
I think I'd take you
you know I'd take you, you, you
you don't get in my way, no way
(have a bet?)

if the pages of the Kama Sutra were leather
I'd try 'em on you
I'd try 'em on you, sweet you
if a bomb were to end this world altogether
I'd go out with you
I'd go out with you, sweet you

and it's a world of sacrifice
it's true, so true
oh, I'm so very deep in love
all of my love
all of my love

goin astray, astray!
all I wanna do is give you
all of my love

Let's Have A Fight

cats got nine lives, I've got one
but a sixth sense protects me from danger
I understand, no cards are given
don't expect kindness from strangers

you have made it very clear that you don't like me
don't respect me
just because that's the way things are
doesn't mean that's how it oughta be

wanted it real good
yeah, you wanted it real bad
bless me was it the best time I never had

let's have a fight
let's have us a fight (woo!)
if it takes all night, you know
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it alright

talk is easy, talk is cheap
but after you get done with it, then
it can lead to indecision
that's the price you pay for it
so let's just have a fight
neither starting, no one to blame
if I lose, I'll shake your hand
and we can just start up again

I wanted it real good (yay-yow!)
we wanted it so bad
bless me was it the best time we never had

let's have a fight (yeah, yeah, yeah)
let's have us a fight (woo!)
if it takes all night, you know
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it alright

let's have a fight (yeah, yeah, yeah)
let's have us a fight (woo!)
if it takes all night, you know
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it alright

our love is like an open wall
so let's set out into discover
it's been a wrestling, such pleasure of each other

wanted it real good (ow-ow)
wanted it so bad, yeah
bless me was it the best time I ever had

let's have a fight
let's have us a fight (woo!)
if it takes all night, you know
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it all
it's gonna make it alright

let's have a fight (yeah, yeah, yeah)
let's have us a fight (woo!)

Billy Boy

you know I always felt
that no-one had been hit as hard as me
come on just like the great pretender
oh, until I make believe

man without love is a wrinkled man

he was a fighter and a brave one
oh so close to number one
he made a move for Marciano
when he called this man a bum

man without love is a wrinkled man

I love that motion, emotion, emotion
I love that motion, emotion, emotion

you know we share a love of London
all its streets, its good, its fun
Like Peter Finch, the Hellfire Club
and wild man Harris to name just one

man without love is a wrinkled man
and this here song is for you Billy
for your grace, respect and fire
and if I drank I'd raise a glass real high
or maybe even higher

man without love is a wrinkled man

I love that motion, emotion, emotion
I love that motion, emotion, emotion

and in the back of that new Jag
you slowly smiled as we passed through
it gave us strength through plague and fire
and it gave us men like you

man without love is a wrinkled man

we really love Peter the painter
civvy street he met his end
we really hate that bastard Churchill
and his bully boys he sent

man without love, yeah, is a wrinkled man

I love that motion, emotion, emotion
I love that motion, emotion, emotion

Předělávka skladby "Stand And Deliver" vydaná v roce 2003 jako příspěvek nadaci pro záchranu goril.

Save The Gorilla

Do you want me to do it again?

I am the gorillaman
who you're too scared to mention
I spend your cash
on looking flash
and grabbing your attention

The devil take your
filthy stinking freak show baby buyer
You earn big time in purgatory
a roasting in hell fire

Save the gorilla
your money for their lives
hug a gorilla
no bullet or a knife

I am the gorillaman
So tired of diseases
with 30 percent of us gone
and into jungle squeezes

You get away with robbery
By stealin' all our baby's
and leave us all rotting
in the mist or locked in cages

Save the gorilla
your money for their lives
hug a gorilla
no bullet or a knife

and even though you fool your soul
your conscience will be mine, all mine
oohoo ooh ah ah ah 5x
oohoo ooh aaaaah

They're the handy psychomen
You don't like how they deal 'em
they rope and beat and massacre
And just for fun they eat 'em

I don't know the next verse
Because I haven't even writ it
Bollocks...shit...Ooh pooh

Save the gorilla
your money for their lives
hug a gorilla
no bullet or a knife

We are the gorilla men
..............oh ha ha haaa!

Save the gorilla
your money for their lives
hug a gorilla
no bullet or a knife

etc etc etc..

enough already!
