Lyrically peaking: It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll

It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll

If I could stick a knife in my heart

Suicide right on stage

Would it be enough for your teenage lust

Would it help to ease the pain?

Ease your brain

If You Really Want To Be My Friend

I don’t want no dog eat dog world for you and me

Get your nails out, stop bleeding me

You know, people tell me you are a vulture

Say you’re a sore in a cancer culture

Ay, but you got a little charm around you

I’ll be there when they finally hound you

Time Waits For No One

Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman’s face

Hours are like diamonds, don’t let them waste


Drink in your summer, gather your corn

The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn

And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me

And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me

No no no, not for me

Short And Curlies

Too bad she’s got you by the balls

You can’t get free at all

She’s got your name

She’s got your number

You’re screamin’

Like thunder


It’s a shame

But it’s funny

She crashed your car

She spend your money
