Scarred For Life (Anderson/Riley/Royal)

I grew up fast on a working class street
First thing I learned was life don't come cheap
Technical school it was a waste of time
Makin' robots for some factory line

Got my first tattoo when I was 16
The rebel had lost his teenage queen
I'd taken a stand for an outlaw's life
My ma's words kept ringin', your scarred for life

She said you're scarred, you've been scarred
Scarred for life (Scarred for life)
I fought my way through the trouble and strife
I was scarred (Scarred for life)
My reputation it cuts like a knife

I spent some time a guest of the state
I got out and wanted to go straight
People don't forgive, the force don't forget
I was jailed for crimes I did not commit

I was scarred, I was scarred
Scarred for life (Scarred for life)
I fought my way through the trouble and strife
I was scarred (Scarred for life)
My reputation it cuts like a knife
I was scarred (Scarred for life)
Been knocked around had a hell of a life
I was scarred (Scarred for life)
I fought my way through the trouble and strife

I fought tooth and nail, every inch of the way
I got scars...to prove it
I was in love for keeps that time
But rock'n'roll was still on my mind
She was young and true and so full of life
And the pen (pain?) went deep, I was scarred for life

I was scarred, I was scarred, scarred, scarred
(Scarred for life)
My reputation it cuts like a knife
I was scarred (Scarred for life)
Been knocked around I had a hell of a life
I was scarred, scarred for life, scarred for life
Yes I've been scarred, scarred for life, scarred for life

Yes I've been scarred...I've been scarred
Scarred for life


We Can't Be Beaten (Anderson/Riley)

If ya wanna be in my gang, stand up with me
We'll start a revolution and make the streets free
We'll never weaken, we'll give it our best
Can't be defeated, we're better than the rest

Shoulder to shoulder, we're gonna stand
We're gonna fight to the very last man
Can't be defeated, don't know the word
Shoulder to shoulder, we'll fight the world

We can't be beaten, what'll we tell 'em boys
We can't be beaten

There comes a time, when every man must fight
When he believes in justice and right
He'll take so much till he'll take no more
They'll hear us coming when they hear the mighty roar

Shoulder to shoulder, we're gonna stand
We're gonna fight to the very last man
Can't be defeated, don't know the word
Shoulder to shoulder, we'll fight the world

We can't be beaten, Let me hear ya
We can't be beaten, Sing it out loud
We can't be beaten, We'll tell the world
We can't be beaten

Now listen, everybody out there that really cares
You gotta realize that you're the real power
We can rule the streets
It's just up to you and me

Can't be defeated, don't know the word
Shoulder to shoulder, we'll fight the world

'Cause
We can't be beaten, hey hey
We can't be beaten, you gotta believe it
We can't be beaten, they'll soon find out
We can't be beaten, no
We can't be beaten
We can't be beaten, when they hear our voice
We can't be beaten, they'll hear us comin'
We can't be beaten, we've got the cause to fight


Juice On The Loose (Anderson/Riley)

Yeah, gotta get out on the prowl, and howl...yeah!

I wanna howl, I wanna prowl
I wanna go on out and dig my trowel
Oh mama, c'mon turn me loose

I need a trick, I need a kick
To get me runnin' make my motor tick
Oh mama, c'mon stroke my goose
Yeah, stroke stroke

Juice on the loose
Juice on the loose
Juice on the loose
Juice...I'm havin' trouble gettin' rid of my juice
Oh yeah

Don't need a pill, I need a thrill
I need a job where I can use my drill
Oh mama, c'mon turn me loose
'Cause I'm all wound up

I wanna bite, I'm wound up tight
I need to lose enough to put me right
Oh mama, c'mon stroke my goose

Juice on the loose, you stroke it so good
Juice on the loose, I knew you would
Juice on the loose, look out for the juice
Havin' no trouble with my juice, anymore

Feelin' pretty good

Juice on the loose
Juice on the loose
Juice on the loose, look out sugar here comes the juice

Look out honey don't break it

Juice on the loose, that's alright for now
Juice on the loose, yeah wow wow wow!
Juice on the loose

Oh baby, havin' no trouble no more
Oh baby, oh oh, no more
I ain't havin' trouble honey...anymore
Ow!


Who's Got The Cash (Anderson/Wells)

Who's got the gold, left someone cold
Done something so bold, who's got the gold
Who's made of crime, stepped out of line
Done something sublime, who's made of crime

Stepping out in the cold and rain
I've seen it before and it still looks the same

Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
Tell me (who's got it)

Who's made a deal, been out to steal
Done something unreal, who's made a deal
Who's been out late, to prowl and rake
Did not hesitate, who's been out late

Stepping out in the cold and rain
I've seen it before and it still looks the same

Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
Sure ain't me!
Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
Tell me (who's got it)

Stepping out in the cold and rain
I've seen it before and it still looks the same

Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
Who's got the cash, who's got the cash
I wanna know who's got it
I wanna know who's got it

I know it's not me who's got it (who's got it)
And I know it's not you who's got it (who's got it)
Somebody, somebody's got it (who's got it)
Someone's got the gold (who's got it)
Someone's got the gold

Who's got the cash
Who's got the cash

Who...who has got the cash


Branded (Anderson/Riley)

Did you know I was a danger, did you know I was a threat
I might even be a killer, but they ain't pushed me that far yet

I've been branded, branded
I wear the mark of the slave on my head
Branded, branded
I know the feeling of the yoke on my neck
Branded, branded
I bear the scars of the lash on my back
Branded, branded
I've had enough and now I'm gonna fight back
Gonna fight back

Did you know I was a rebel, yes I've always been one out
And though they tried so hard to kill me, you will always hear me shout

I've been branded, branded
I wear the mark of the slave on my head
Branded, branded
I know the feeling of the yoke on my neck
Branded, branded
I bear the scars of the lash on my back
Branded, branded
I've had enough and now I'm gonna fight back
Because I need to fight back
Yes...fight back

Did you know I was a danger, did you know I was a threat
I might even be a killer, but they ain't pushed me that far yet
Did you know I was a rebel, yes I've always been one out
And though they tried so hard to kill me, you will always hear me shout

'Cause I've been branded, branded
I wear the mark of the slave on my head
Branded, branded
I know the feeling of the yoke on my neck
Branded, branded
I bear the scars of the lash on my back
Branded, branded
I've had enough, I'm gonna fight back


I'm gonna fight back
Yes, 'cause they branded me
They hunted me, they ??? me
They hunted me like an animal
They branded me a slave
They invaded my home
They put a yoke around my neck
They made me work...they beat me
Like an animal
They made me, they made me want to kill
Just to be free
They beat me, they took away my freedom
They took away my dignity
They tried to destroy my soul by breakin' my heart
They tried to change what I believed
By breakin' my very will to live
Drove me, they hounded me
I was beaten, I was driven
I was thrown in jail for the things that I said
I got a million thoughts runnin' in my head
I got a million words, that my mouth has just got to say
I gotta speak out, I gotta speak out
I'm gonna reach out and touch your heart
Before they tear us...tear us apart
I gotta tell you about the lies
I think I know why you cry


Texas (Rose Tattoo)

It's hard when you stumble, it's harder when you fall
Yes it's hard when you stumble, it's harder when you fall
It's hard livin' with a broken heart, it's harder not to love at all
It's hard livin' with a broken heart, it's harder not to love at all

It's hard when you're humble, it's harder when you crawl
It's hard for me to be humble, it's harder when I gotta crawl
It's hard eatin' crow, it's harder not eatin' at all
It's hard eatin' crow, it's harder not eatin' at all

I'm goin' down to Texas where the long legged woman roam
I'm goin' down to Texas where the big breasted women grow
I'm gonna get some Texas pussy gonna rock away all night
Gonna roll, yeah some fine lookin' women there

It's hard when you stumble, it's harder when you fall
Yes it's hard when you stumble, it's harder when you fall
It's hard livin' with a broken heart, it's harder not to love at all
It's hard livin' with a broken heart, it's harder not to love at all
Harder not lovin' at all


It's Gonna Work Itself Out (Anderson/Riley)

Well I know that the world seems so full of trouble
There's so much heartache and pain
And I know that there's times that it seems so futile
To ever wanna try again

There are times I know when you're feelin' low
You think that you'll never get a break
But if you let yourself be ruled by these downers
You'll be making such a bad mistake

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
If you're livin' in doubt, better start to believe
It's gonna work itself out

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
If you live in doubt, start to believe
It's gonna work itself out

Well I hear in the news nearly every day
That some new war has begun
And it's so sad thinkin' that desperate men
Gotta make their way with a gun

And they spray the air with insecticides
Bendin' mind body and limb
And although it's cruel, we'd all be fools
If we thought we'd have to give in

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
So if you're livin' in doubt, better start to believe
It's gonna work itself out

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
If you live in doubt, start to believe
It's gonna work itself out
It'll work out

Well I know there's no use sittin' around
Cryin' over what's been done
Because there's no solution, and givin' up now
The race can still be won

And with a little hard work and determination
You know that you're gonna pull through
So don't ask for nothin', don't look to no one
The future's all...up to you

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
If you live in doubt, start to believe
It's gonna work itself out

It's gonna work itself out, it's gonna work itself out
Don't live in doubt, start to believe
It's gonna work itself out

It's gonna work itself, it's gonna work itself
It's gonna work itself...out!


Sydney Girls (Anderson/Wells)

Don't you, look at me that way
You got me tongue tied but I got a lot to say
Don't you, bend down to get that book
I might be arrested if I take a second look

Oh my oh my, makes me wanna cry
Cotton brown dresses, Sydney girls...Hi!
Hi there...whoo hoo....see ya!

You've got, that smile upon your face
I know I shouldn't ask you round to see my place
You've got, that swayin' in your walk
If I get you alone there won't be any talk

Oh my oh my, it makes me wanna cry
Cotton brown dresses, sun brown thighs
Oh my oh my, it makes me wanna cry
Cotton brown dresses on Sydney girls...Hi!
How ya doin? You're lookin' good...

I like, to see your sun brown thighs
You got that look of promise dancing in your eyes
I like, that carefree way you smile
You seem so innocent but naughty all the while

Oh my oh my, it makes me wanna cry
Cotton brown dresses, sun brown thighs
Oh my oh my, it makes me wanna cry
Cotton brown dresses on Sydney girls...Hi!

You've got, a certain way you walk
And you've got, a certain way you talk
Sydney girls...


Dead Set (Anderson/Leach)

They tried to put me away
But I'm back and I'm here to stay
Nothin can stand in my way
'Cause I'm dead set and I'm ready to play

Dead set about playin', I'm dead set gonna try
I'm dead set about winnin'
I'm gonna be first over the line
I'm sick and tired of bein' second best
I'm sick of hearin' the lies
I'm dead set about winnin'
I'm gonna be first over the line

They thought I was a monkey, dancin' on a string
But I'm more like a scorpion
And I'm mad as hell and I'm a-ready to sting

Dead set about playin', I'm dead set gonna try
I'm dead set about winnin'
I'm gonna be first over the line
I'm sick and tired of bein' second best
I'm sick of hearin' the lies
I'm dead set about winnin'
I'm gonna be first over the line
I'm gonna be first

They used me like a fool, they treated me like dirt
Just because I didn't moan, don't mean it didn't hurt
They tried to put me away, but I'm back and I'm here to stay
And nothin' can stand in my way
'Cause I'm dead set and I'm ready to play

Dead set about playin', I'm dead set gonna try
I'm dead set about winnin'
I'm gonna be first over the line
I'm sick and tired of bein' second best
I'm sick of hearin' the lies
I'm dead set about playin'
I'm gonna be first, I'm gonna be first, I'm gonna be first
I'm gonna be first...over the line


Revenge (Anderson/Wells)

My city is full of people
That I don't understand
They got no love for the life
In this my motherland

They practice strange religions
Whose roots are buried in the east
Their givin' nothing of their souls
While on our fat they feast

The parasites...they cannot hide
I'll have vengeance...swift, deadly, unforgiving, unrelentant

My city is torn by union strikes
They're part of an evil plan
Their leaders livin' life of ease
There's no love for workin' man

They took away his given right
To work, to build a home
Those governmental criminals
Pretenders on the throne

They cannot hide, they cannot hide from my eyes
I will seek them out, I will seek them out
I will hang them untried
Their blood will run in the streets
They will find no place to hide
I can see...revenge
