Dancing Queen
(Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Stig Anderson)

You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Dig in the Dancing Queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the night music
Getting in the swing
You come to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music
Everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
Young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
Feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Dig in the Dancing Queen

You're teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave 'em burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another
Anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the Dancing Queen
Young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
Feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene
Dig in the Dancing Queen...





I Like Rock

I like rock
Music will never stop
Gimme electric shock
I like rock

Turn it loud
Wanna go scream and shout
Get my emotions out
I like rock

Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday
Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday
I like to crank it, crank it all the way
Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday

I like rock
Music will never stop
Gimme electric shock
I like rock

Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday
Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday
I like to crank it, crank it all the way
Yeah I wanna play guitar everyday

I like rock
Music will never stop
Gimme electric shock
I like rock

Turn it loud
Wanna go scream and shout
Get my emotions out
I like rock





Down To Mexico

If my situation gets out of control
I could run down to Mexico
If I need a place to do some layin' low
I could run down to Mexico

Sun is always in the sky
Bands are always hoppin'
You can shake it all you want
Never feel like stoppin'
Think I'll give my mind a rest and save my soul
I will run down to Mexico

If you don't have anywhere left to go
You could run down to Mexico
If you found the answer but still you don't know
You could run down to Mexico

You don't need to buy your friends
They're just glad to meet ya
Maybe even meet yourself
A friendly senorita
If you never try it you will never know
You could run down to Mexico

Take me a vacation from the freezing cold
Gonna run down to Mexico
Should have left a long, long time ago
Gonna run down to Mexico

Sun is always in the sky
Bands are always hoppin'
You can shake it all you want
'Til you feel like stoppin'
If you never try it you will never know
You could run down to Mexico





Suicide Lover

She was the best girl that I ever kissed
How was I to know she was a terrorist
But she didn't mean to hurt me
Yeah, in fact she looked surprised
When her love exploded right into my eyes

She's a suicide lover
You could say her love's the bomb
Suicide lover
She's in a crowded street
Dosen't need a gun
She won't stop
'till she's makin' love to everyone

She was watchin' all the news 'bout Israel
How the war was making people miserable
She believed in human karma
And the problem couldn't wait
She would use the power of love to conquer hate

She's a suicide lover
You could say her love's the bomb
Suicide lover
She's in a crowded street
Dosen't need a gun
She won't stop
'till she's makin' love to everyone

I tried to tell her it's not sensible
But she might as well do it with me
She might as well do it with me
She might as well do it with me

solo

She was the best girl that I ever had
When I think about her I start going mad
But she didn't mean to hurt me
And she told me not to wait
I was not the only serving on her plate

She's a suicide lover
You could say her love's the bomb
Suicide lover
I wonder where she's gone
Suicide lover
Come on, come on, come on
Suicide lover
She's in a crowded street
Dosen't need a gun
She won't stop
'till she's makin' love to everyone





I Am Satan

Hey Judy
Do you remember how we met
You say you'll never forget
'Cause you love me

Well I love you too
And I'm good for you
But I'm afraid to ruin our plans
When you find out who I am

I am satan
I rule darkness and fight off the day
I am satan
You may wanna run
But I hope you will stay
I am satan
This year's king of the underworld
But there's nothing I can do
And I'd feel oh so blue without you

Hey Judy
Can you imagine how I feel
Can't we try to make a deal
'Cause you love me

And I love you too
I'm so good for you
But will you condemn me to hell
When you know why I dance so well

I am satan
I rule darkness and fight off the day
I am satan
You may wanna run
But I hope you will stay
I am satan
This year's king of the underworld
But there's nothing I can do
And I'd feel oh so blue without you

You run as fast as you could go
You need not fear me I won't follow
You'll always have respect from me
Now what do I see
You're walking back to me

I am satan
I rule darkness and fight off the day
I am satan
You may wanna run
But I hope you will stay
I am satan
This year's king of the underworld
And there's so much we can do
So let's go to Disneyland together





Individually Twisted

I was walking through the grocery store the other day
To ward off my starvation
Got a crackerjack, a coffee, and a milky way
And had this realization

Gotta go where there's someone for me
Gotta know how a real love can be
Don't want to be

Individually twisted like a pretzel
Feel the salt right on my wounds
Individually twisted
Like a python
With a knot I can't undo
Individually Twisted
Twisted over you

So I called a couple friends to get some good advice
I knew that they could help me
Yeah they told me I was always just a little too nice
And that's why she condemned me

Gotta leave her and give it a try
Get me stoned on a natural high
Don't what to be

Individually twisted
Like a pretzel
Feel the salt right on my wounds
Individually twisted
Like a python
With a knot I can't undo
Individually Twisted
Twisted over you

Solo

Oo woo hoo woo
Oo woo hoo woo

Individually twisted
Like a pretzel
Feel the salt right on my wounds
Individually twisted
Like a python
With a knot I can't undo
Individually twisted, twisted
Twisted, twisted over you

Individually twisted over you
Individually twisted over you





Bliss

I am a mountain
I stand a mile high
Free and I'm all alone
You never slow down
You want to know me
But don't lose your way to go

I am the green forest, desert sand
Deep valley's the palm of my hand
If you dare, climb on top
When you make it up
Just don't look down
Don't look down
Look up or look around
Look out!

I am a river
Running deep and wide
Strong wind blows over me
Yeah you can jump in
But take a warning
My arms reach out to sea

I am the deep ocean, silver moon
High tide that comes too soon
Sea serpents swim below
Yeah, you'll never know
Just don't look down
Don't look down
Look up or look around
Look out!

I am the air that you are breathing
The one who's holding up your plane
You brought a chute, and now you're jumping out...

You climbed a mouontain
You swam a river
Free and alone
Free and alone
Free and alone

Space rockets going to Mars
Keep riding to the stars
Leave ignorance on the ground
Still bliss is around
So don't look down
Don't look down
Look up or look around
Look out!

And now you find
It blows your mind
One giant leap for mankind
All right!





Time To Let You Go
(Enuff Z'Nuff)


You've lost that feelin' in your kiss
I'm only holdin' up the show
My god your face I'm gonna miss
I see it's time to me you go

You don't dig lovin' me no more
We used to make it long and slow
I've cried so long my eyes are sore
I see it's time to let you go

It ain't no good if it don't feel good, real good
It still felt good to me
And if you feel you should, it's understood
Then go where you should (be)

Take everything that smells like you
Leave no reminders left to show
That at one time man we were two
But now it's time to let you go

It ain't no good if it don't feel good, real good
It still felt good to me
And if you feel you should, it's understood
Then go where you should (be)

Take everything that smells like you
Leave no reminders left to show
That at one time man we were two
But now it's time to let you go

That at one time man we were two
But now it's time to let you go

That at one time man we were two
But now it's time to let you go





I'm Not Afraid Of The Police

I'm not afraid of the police today
They'll never catch me now
I'm celebrating my release today
They finally let me out
I've become real good at pretending I've changed
But my heart is full of heavy metal rage
Yeah, yeah

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police today
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police
Today

I'm not afraid of the police today
I know the way they are
And when they're lookin' for their keys today
They'll find I stole their car
It's a plan I made while sittin' in the cage
'Cause my heart is full of heavy metal rage
Yeah, yeah

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police today
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police
Today

I'm not afraid of you
I'm not afraid of broken glass
Don't tell me what to do
'Cause then I'll have to kick your ass

I'm not afraid of the police today
I'm not afraid of the police today

I've become real good at pretending I've changed
But my heart is full of heavy metal rage

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police today
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid of the police
Today





Three Times Rana

Australia is in the south
A girl there kissed me in the mouth
I want to take her out tonight

She smokes but I forgot to care
Sometimes she pulls me by the hair
We can go anywhere tonight

And her name is Rana, Rana
It's so nice I say it twice
Or three times Rana, Rana, Rana
Take me home tonight

She's kind of young but so am I
We both believe each other's lies
Look straight into her eyes tonight

Her dress in flowing in the breeze
She dosen't want me to say please
Or speak no Japanese tonight

And her name is Rana, Rana
It's so nice I say it twice
Or three times Rana, Rana, Rana
Take me home tonight





The Second Loudest Guitar In The World

Have you heard?
The second loudest guitar in the world
Been tryin' and it finally occurred
All wrong
The shred-heads like it
But it dosen't fit the song I play
The chords McCartney used in yesterday
Then changed them to make music my own way
When some girl
Pissed my off so much
That I used a heavy pick
And played the loudest guitar in the world

Always For Alison

YOU KNOW MATH
YOU KNOW SCIENCE
YOU KNOW ASTONOMY
AND YOU LAUGH
AT THE PICTURE
THAT YOU GOT FROM ME
EVERY MORNING YOU AWAKE
BUT TODAY THERE'S BIRTHDAY CAKE
IT'S FOR ALISON
ALWAYS FOR ALISON

YOU KNOW FRANCE
YOU KNOW PARIS
AROUND THE WORLD AND BACK
YOU'VE GOT CLOWN
YOU'VE GOT LUCIOUS
A COUPLE OF BIG-BONED CATS
YOU'RE NOT TECHNICALLY ALONE
BUT IF SOMEONE RINGS THE PHONE
IT'S ALWAYS FOR ALISON
ALWAYS FOR ALISON

YOU MIGHT THINK THAT I'M SILLY
SOME KIND OF FOOLISH MAN
I'LL ADMIT I'VE BEEN CRAZY
BUT AT LEAST I KNOW I AM
HERE WE ARE SO SELF-AWARE
I'D RATHER LOOK AT YOUR RED HAIR
AND SING SONGS FOR ALISON
ALWAYS FOR ALISON


- Huge Thanx to Paul! -
