Snow Queen (Rilen)

A-hello baby, good to see you back with the boys again
I like the way you say hello
I love the way you won't let us go when it's getting late
Take me to your daddy's car
Let me taste your honey jar again
Ooh yeah, once again

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

A-hello baby, felt so good when I saw your flashing eyes
When I get you down on the floor
I wanna hear you moaning and groaning for more
When I taste your diamond dust
Lordy mama make me wanna bust in two
All because of you

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love
Ooh yeah

Well, a-hello baby, good to see you back with the boys again
When I taste your silver snow
Ooh baby makes me wanna get up and go
Take me for that velvet ride
I know you dig it when I'm slipping inside of you
Deep inside of you baby

Cause, you're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love

You're my snow queen, you're my snow queen
You're my snow queen, gimme your love


Never Too Loud (Rose Tattoo)

Well mister I got something to say
Don't tell me how to live, don't tell me how to play
Don't give me no lecture, don't try to tell me what to do
Listen to what I'm telling you

It's never too loud and it's never too strong
The banner of a working class man
It's never too late and it's never out of date
The music of a rock 'n' roll band

Don't gimme your voice, we'll give 'em no choice
We'll never take the shit they dish out
We're gonna be heard and we'll have the last word
You know we're the voice of the crowd

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, it's never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd

We gotta use brains to start making things change
Before it's too late to speak out
We're gonna strike now while the iron is hot
Let them feel the weight of our clout

Hit them so hard, hit them so fast
They'll never keep us down again
We're making them see, they're fightin' you and me
We're gonna see it through to the end

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, it's never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd
Oh it's never too loud

Gotta get wise or they'll tell us more lies
If we believe what they say
Gotta find the truth or else there ain't no use
Tomorrow won't be a better day

So hold your head high, spit in their eye
You gotta start walking real proud
Come on now boys, make a lotta noise
Don't be afraid to sing out

And as their ears start to bleed
The weak start to plead
It's never too loud, never too loud
It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd

It's never too loud, no it's never too loud
It's never too loud, no it's never too loud
Never been too loud

It's never too loud, for a rock 'n' roll crowd


I Had You First (Rose Tattoo)

You said you needed freedom and love
It was possession that just ain't cool
What I want is good, good for the goose
And oh so good for the fool

You knew I'd just been down
You said it really hurts
When I was down and begging for money
You rubbed my face in the dirt

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
Tell me who's showing you now
I don't care who's showing you now

Said you didn't want love you needed lovin'
So we wouldn't have the trouble ?
I was lookin' for physical attraction
So that was quite alright by me

Said you wanted wide open spaces
A brand new sea some new faces
But late last night you caught me almost there
With a juicy new blonde pet

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
A-ha, oh, I don't care who is showing you now

Don't ask me how a woman thinks
There's no one alive to tell
She's got a big size sense of timing and fear
And that's much more than hell

She says I understand and I'll be good
I know that what you're doing is right
And when I'm minutes away, working on the road
Logic keeps her warm at night

Talking 'bout sighin' cryin' teasin' and beggin'
Makin' everyone cry
Talking 'bout heavin' sweatin' takin' and gettin'
Milkin' him till he's dry

I had you first, I had you first
No matter how it hurts, I had you first
I showed you how, I showed you how
No matter who is showing you now

A-ha, I had you first
Ha ha


Fightin' Sons (Rose Tattoo)

Well, I was just a young man when they took me across the sea
Dressed me up in jungle green just to fight for democracy
I was just an Aussie boy in the jungle for the war
From all around the world we came not really knowing more

And you're a long way from home
Oh yes a long way from home
When you're all alone

War's got a way of making strangers into friends
I met three sons of the south and they became closer than kin
Thank god the orders came to bring the war to an end
With tears in my eyes I said goodbye to my best friends

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
We was fightin' for democracy
Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just got to be free, yeah

Now I know I'll probably never see those sons of the south again
To this Australian boy they'll always be closer than kin
And so I raise my glass to you, Bobby Bear and Bill
And though we're worlds apart, I'm thinking of you still

And men will be men wherever they may be
Deep in my heart you're the only friends of me

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
They were fightin' sons of the confederacy
Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just got a right to be free

Bobby and Bear, Sailor Bill and me
Us good old boys just gotta be free
We gotta be free, just gotta be free


Realise Legalise

Music:Wells/Anderson/Royal/Lloyd
Words:Kew/Paterson/Almanza/Anderson/Cooper)

Stand up for your rights, don't give up the fight
Accept that the time is right, out dated laws we've got to fight
And not just support the cause, gotta change the law
Time to support the cause

Gotta realise, gotta legalise
Gotta change the law
Gotta legalise, gotta realise
We're not children anymore

In '79 the time is right, earth's children must unite
To give our weekend fight, what is our human right
Support is what we need, to keep the movement free
Support is what we need, to keep the movement free

Gotta realise, gotta legalise
Gotta change our thought
Gotta legalise, gotta reaalise
We're not children anymore, not anymore

Gotta realise, gotta legalise
Gotta realise, gotta legalise
Gotta change our thought
Gotta realise, and we gotta legalise
We gotta keep the movement free yeah
Gotta set the children free yeah

Gotta legalise, gotta realise
We gotta keep the movement free yeah
We gotta keep the movement free
We gotta keep the movement free
We gotta keep the movement free


Sun's Gonna Shine (Rose Tattoo)

We're living in a time of hatred 
Toiling out of pain and woe
We're living in a time of hypocrisy 
Where honesty don't count no more

I know we're living in a time of heartache
Living in a time of shame
I do believe deep in my soul
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
Once again

We're living in a time of hunger
Well offs seem to turn their heads
Living in a time of futile war
Where proud nations need to beg

I know we're living in a time of heartache
Living in a time of shame
I do believe deep in my soul
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
Once again

Yes I believe
I do believe, the sun's gonna shine
I do believe, the sun's gonna shine

Living in a time of hatred
Where politicians turn their heads
Living in a time of futile wars
Where proud nations need to beg

I know we're living in a time of heartache
Living in a time of shame
I do believe, deep in my soul
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
The sun's gonna shine
Once again, yeah

I do believe, the sun's gonna shine
I do believe, the sun's gonna shine
I do believe, the sun's gonna shine
I do believe, the sun's gonna shine


All Hell Broke Loose(G. Anderson/J.P. Young/W. Morgan)

Between the devil and the deep blue sea
I wait for Tracy, and she waits for me
Outside my window making eyes at me
She's in the bedroom, gonna set me free
An old girlfriend dropped in for a cup of tea
I let her in, we made it three

And All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
Ow!

Between heaven and this side of hell
I was born a lover, and I do it well
She was younger than her looks would tell
With a little style they carry well
Teenage daughters Eloise and Annabelle
Four of us swinging, ringing like a bell

And All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
Ow!

Swinging, ringing like a bell
Look out, hell's breaking loose
All Hell Broke Loose, ringing like a bell
All Hell Broke Loose, Hells
All Hell Broke Loose, breaking loose
All Hell Broke Loose
All Hell Broke Loose
