High ‘N’ Dry

1. Let It Go LYRICS

Cool woman, cool eyes, you got me hypnotized
So head down, get a rhythm
Stop your stalling and your bitching
I'm rock steady, I'm still shaking
I'm ready for the taking
So make your move, yeah, make me
And get ready for the big "C"

Let it rock, yeah
Let it roll, let it
Let it go, let it go
You gotta let it rock, come on
Let it roll, yeah just let it go

Slow down, hold on
You're too fast, you're too strong
Take it easy, take it slow
Make it last, don't let go
We're one body, it's one way
You're not leaving, c'mon stay
So get down on your knees
And let me know you're eager to please

Slow down, hold on
You're too fast, too strong
I need a woman, a woman to love
One good woman
And you got what I want, what I want

Slow down, hold on
You're much too fast, you're much too strong
Take it slow, make it last
Take it easy, not too fast
Don't let go

No, I'm rock steady, but still shaking
And I'm ready for the taking
So make your move, yeah make me
And get a-ready for the big "C", yeah

2. Another Hit And Run LYRICS

Union Jack is back with a hole in his head
He's gettin' badly burned every time
He's laughin' at me and dancin' on my sneakers
And his sixties songs are blowin' up my speakers

I say you got no respect
Respect for authority
You're just playing your dirty tricks
And then come cryin' to me

Hit and run, hit and run
It's just a hit and run
Another hit and run

The bulldog lost his bite and his breath has gone bad
And the whole damn world is really laughin' mad

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Hit it!!
Oh bring it down
Oh you bring it down

I say you ain't got no respect
I say you ain't got no respect
No you ain't got no respect
And you hit me when I'm down

Hit and run, hit and run
It's just another hit and run
I said it's just another hit and run

Oh yeah, hit and run
Oh yeah, hit and run
Oh yeah, hit and run
Oh yeah, hit and run
Oh yeah, hit and run
It's just another hit and run
Hit and run

3. High ‘N’ Dry (Saturday Night) LYRICS

Saturday, I feel right
I been drinking all day
Yes I got a date, a midnight ride
I had to get it away
Yeah, I'm not a loner, I'm not a fool
Don't need a reason, reason to be cool
I got my whiskey, I got my wine
I got my woman, and this time the lights are going out

Saturday night - High
Saturday night - High 'n' dry
Saturday night - I'm high
Saturday night - High 'n' dry

Ow, I feel bad, I feel mean
I'm up and down and in between
On the bottle, I'm on the line
I'm up and feeling fine

Oh I'm not a loner, I'm not a fool
Don't need a reason, reason to be cool
I got my whiskey, I got my wine
I got my woman, and this time the lights are going out

[Repeat Chorus]

Oh take me high
Saturday, kickin' out, her train was comin' to me
I gotta move, number one
Saturday night on the run

Saturday night - High
Saturday night - High 'n' dry
Saturday night - Got my whiskey
Saturday night - Got my wine
Saturday night - Got my woman
Saturday night - High 'n' dry
You gotta try me tonight

4. Bringin’ On The Heartbreak LYRICS

Gypsy, sittin' lookin' pretty
The broken rose with laughin' eyes
You're a mystery, always runnin' wild
Like a child without a home
You're always searching, searching for a feeling
That it's easy come and easy go

Burnin' out and burnin' me

Hang on
Yeah
Ha ha ha ha ha
I don't care too much
For your backstabbin' and side steppin'
You're all sweet talk, you're all lust
You're the kind, yeah, I don't trust

Before you damage my pride

Let me through don't spoil my view
I gotta get away, away from you
Oh no no never thought I'd feel so low

You got me runnin'
You got me runnin'

And yesterday everything seemed okay
Yeah you better run and hide away
Oh you better hide

You're out, out on the street
But I'm back on my feet
I might lose it, so get wise
Stop your usin' and your lies
Oh my friend don't stick around
Your time is up, the chips are down

7. Mirror, Mirror (Look Into My Eyes) LYRICS

Mirror mirror
Just watchin' with your eye of glass
You're just a fortune wheel
With something that I wanna ask

Mirror mirror
Got my fate lyin' in your hands
You're the fool, you're the juggler
Hangman and lover, you're not like no other

Take a look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me is it true?
Take a look into my eyes
Oh when I look at you
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me is it me?
Is it really me?

Mirror mirror
Gotta know just what you see
My crystal ball
You're lookin' so sly and so sleazy

Mirror mirror
Hangin' there with that crack in your eye
You make me stumble, make me blind
Time after time and line by line

[Repeat Chorus]

Mirror mirror
Oh tell me
You're the fool, you're the juggler
I ain't met a lover, you're like no other

Take a look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me is it true?
Take a look into my eyes
Oh it just can't last
Take a look into my eyes
Gonna have to smash the glass

Take a look into my eyes
Take a look into my eyes
Take a look
Take a look into my eyes
Oh yeah
Take a look into my eyes
Take a look into my eyes
Take a look into my eyes
Take a look into my eyes
Take a look
Take a look into my eyes
Look into my eyes
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me if it's me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby

8. No No No LYRICS

Oh yeah
She was a foxy rocker, a roxy roller
An unchained sex machine
Yeah
Slippin' slidin', electric glidin'
And boy she was mean, I said mean
High class dealer, sippin' her tequila
Comin' on pretty strong
Real love stealer, rebel rousin' squealer
She said go but I said no

I kept saying no, no no no no no
I kept saying no, no no no no no

Waiting at the back door
Couldn't take it anymore
Didn't know where she'd been
She looked pretty neat, turnin' on the heat
And only seventeen, seventeen
Windin' her up, bringin' her down
She wanted it just the same
Said stick around, that's when I found
I only had myself to blame

I kept saying no, no no no no no
I kept saying no, no no no no no

High class dealer, sippin' on tequila
Comin' on really strong
Rhythm stealer, rattle off squealer
She said go but I said no

Well I kept saying no, no no no no no
Well I kept saying no, no no no no no
Well I kept saying no, no no no no no

I say no no no
I say no no no
I say no no
No no no no no no no
No no no no no no no
