(Harris/Bayley/Gers) Sometimes when I feel the anger Sometimes when I'm all alone Sometimes when I feel surrounded Like all the doors are closed I feel like I've been a prisoner I feel like I've been a tool Let people try to judge me When they're not in my shoes *I've lived on my knees Trying to please It's time to change Some people are only happy When they can watch you fail And to them every day is Another coffin nail I think that I've found the answer I think that at last I know We've only got one lifetime I'll make my life my own *Repeat To live my own way I live my way Living for today Don't care what they say
(Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant) (Note: Shame on you if you don't know the original performer) (Note: Shame on you if you don't own the original album) Hey, girl, stop what you're doin'! Hey, girl, you'll drive me to ruin. I don't know what it is that I like about you, But I like it a lot. Won't let me hold you, Let me feel your lovin' charms. /* lovin' touch, maybe? */ *Communication Breakdown, It's always the same, I'm having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane! Hey, girl, I got something I think you ought to know. Hey, babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so. I wanna hold you in my arms, yeah! I'm never gonna let you go, 'Cause I like your charms. * Chorus I want you to love me all night... * Chorus I want you to love me all night I want you to love me I want you to love...yeah! I want you to love!

(Harris) So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again You'd better watch your steps now, woman, cause I ain't like those other men There's something burning inside me that makes me want to be free And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me There's things in life now, baby, that I know I've got to do And I need your love now, baby, to help me see it through So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again You'd better watch your steps now, woman, cause I ain't like those other men SOLO So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again You'd better watch your steps now, woman, cause I ain't like those other men There's something burning inside me that makes me want to be free And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me
(Billy Gibbons) (Note: Performed at the Marquee club 19.12.1985) (Note: Original by ZZ Top, on album Rio Grande Mud) In a flat Forty-One with my strat on the door we was goin' to the country for what we came for. I'm sure you've smelled the trees in the air. The best of motor cruisin's just the joy to get there. I was approachin' Simonton down by the cotton gin. There was old man Berkman trying to flag me in. He asked if I would stay awhile and if I needed gas. I said, "No thanks, anyhow I don't drive too fast." Hallelujah, hallelujah, ride my Chevrolet. Hallelujah, hallelujah, ride my Chevrolet. I took the road down to Cinco through that red Brazos River land, done hit that freeway at sunset. Now the big city lights are at hand. Hallelujah, hallelujah, ride my Chevrolet. Hallelujah, hallelujah, ride my Chevrolet.
(I. Anderson) (Note: Original by Jethro Tull, on album Aqualung) Who would be a poor man a beggerman, a thief if he had a rich man in his hand Who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth if he could take it from the money man Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again She signs no contract but she always plays the game She dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel and the jack knife barber drops her off at school Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys would rather make it with a letching gray Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung who watches through the railings as they play Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along. She's a poor man's rich girl and she'll do it for a song She's a rich man's stealer but her favour's good and strong She's the Robin Hood of Highgate helps the poor man get along
(Schenker/Mogg) (Note: Original by UFO, on album Phenomenon) Doctor doctor, please Oh, the mess I'm in Doctor doctor, please oh, the mess I'm in She walked up to me and really stole my heart And then she started to take my body apart *Livin' lovin' I'm on the run So far away from you Livin' lovin' I'm on the run So far away from you Doctor doctor, please Oh I'm goin' fast Doctor doctor, please, oh, I'm goin' fast It's only just a moment She's turning paranoid That's not a situation for a nervous boy **Doctor doctor, please Oh, the mess I'm in Doctor doctor, please oh, the mess I'm in But you look so angry as I crawled across your floor She's got the strength, and I can't take any more *repeat **repeat
Excerpt from Ode To Joy by Friedrich Schiller Note: Performed at Stuttgart Schleyerhalle 4.12.1990. Just a couple of seconds in the middle of Sanctuary. See also: Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony no. 9 in D minor, opus 125, fourth movement (translation by Paul Brians) Freude, schöner Götterfunken Joy, lovely divine light, Tochter aus Elysium Daughter of Elysium Wir betreten feuertrunken, We march, drunk with fire, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum. Holy One, to thy holy kingdom. Deine Sauber binden wieder, Thy magic binds together Was die Mode streng geteilt; What tradition has strongly parted, Alle Menschen werden Brüder, All men will be brothers Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt. Dwelling under the safety of your wings.
(Bayley, Gers) There are no marks upon a man That can say he's good or bad No label and no tell tale sign That can show he's full of lies *By your deeds you will be known Time will tell truth will show As we exhale every breath We all got closer to our death **What will you say What will you say On judgement day On judgement day When you look into their eyes You don't know what they hide No label and no tell tale sign That can show he's full of lies *Repeat **Repeat Ignorance is bliss is that the reason We can not read another's mind If we knew what thoughts were dancing Through each others heads Would we all be driven mad Would we all be dead *Repeat **Repeat

(Nektar) (Note: Original by Nektar, on album "A tab in the ocean". Actually, on the Nektar album this was two separate songs: "Crying in the dark" and "King of Twilight".)
I've been trying, trying so hard I've been crying, crying in the dark Don't forsake me, the time of mine is near Don't ever break me and the world that brought me here Sick and lonely, waiting for you /* ??? */ Sick and lonely, wondering what to do Can you hear me, when I say to you You give me your hand, I'll give mine to you
When the king of twilight shows me I will take ten steps to see Forty leaves I pay for freedom For a chance to be free For a chance to be free When the king of twilight calls you take a step and you will see We all need a quick solution For a chance to be free For a chance to be free Free When the king of twilight shows me I will take ten steps to see Forty leaves I pay for freedom For a chance to be free For a chance to be... FREE

(Terry Slesser/ Kenny Mountain) (Note: Original by the Beckett, on album "Beckett") In the heat of the morning when your day is still dawning And your bird, she's singing Catch your soul, he's willing to fly away Packed your bags in a hurry Because your mind's in a worry Mark my words, you're gonna be sorry if you ever fly away Sweet little girl with the Saint Da Vinci-smile Stares at me with sadness in her eyes I'm not sure if she's really real or make-believe Maybe she's a vision that comes to only me Cause I'm so tired Yes I'm so tired So tired Yes I'm so tired SOLO REPEAT FIRST VERSE
(Steve Harris/Paul Di'anno/Dave Murray) Out of the winter came a war horse of steel. I've never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels. *Chorus*: I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw. So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law. So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright. Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight. I met up with a 'slinger last night to keep me alive. He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive. *Chorus* I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain. Down in the Canyon or out in the plain. *Chorus*
(Iron Maiden) (Note: the Japanese Stranger In A Strange Land EP has a lyric sheet which contains hilarious errors in the Rodney's rap part. Highly recommended, although for entertainment purposes only.) Life in a city living in L.A. Is a long way from Huddersfield town The back of the Rainbow's a long way from heaven But that's where he get's his pork pie Limos and ladies they're driving him queasy Rugby and cricket's unknown Baseball and football they're making him lazy Your fan club says "Rodney come home" (chorus) The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle Look down on Hollywood Hills The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle You're our own Hot Rod on wheels A good game of arrows a few dozen barrels The Nautilus rusts in the yard But for Yorkshire he's yearning but because he's earning He'll always live in L.A. A custom made wallet that stays in his pocket And never comes out to pay bills He's winning at poker and playing the Joker And he always cheats when he deals (repeat chorus) (Rodney's rap) Hello, let me introduce meself! My name is Rodney. I'm immensely strong. When I were a lad, I could lift up five navies on an end of a shovel. The reason I never took martial arts because I was immensely fearsome and I'd probably kill everybody I came into contact with it. I was phenomenally strong. Pride and ego, my lads, pride and ego, is what makes the world rotate. And every
She's Gone(Note: Performed at the Marquee club 19.12.1985) (Note: Original by Black Sabbath, on album Technical Ecstasy) I've been gone a long long time,waiting for you I din't want to see you go And now it's hurting so much,what can I do? I wanted you to be my wife The days are passing slowly,since you've gone Your memories are all I have I sit here waiting but you'll never show Without you I can't carry on You said you'd always love me,all of my life And then you said your last goodbye Why the sudden change,why all the lies, I should have seen it in your eyes The endless hours of heartache,waiting for you My summer love has turned to rain The silent emptiness of one sided love My life means nothing now you're gone...
Space Station #5(Montrose/Hagar) (Note: Original by Montrose, on album Montrose) Start, with the sun And move on out The future's in the skies above The heavens unfold And a new star is born Space and time makin' love Chorus: Oh what a time we had Living on the ground I've moved to station #5 See you next time around, Next time around As far you want, as close as you need It's all in the mind, you know This old world hasn't really seen it's day It's here, time to go Chorus Remember when it was so clear We were young, but the memory still remains To pick fruit from a tree Fish from the seas Now nothing's left here, but the stains Well I can't cry no more Can only be glad There's other places we can be If the time suits you right I'm leaving tonight Come fly away With me! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Oh, yeah Start, with the sun And move on out The future's in the skies above The heavens unfold A new star is born Space and time makin' love Chorus
Twilight Zone(Steve Harris/Dave Murray) She lays in bed at night and that is when I make my call. But when she stares at me, she can't see nothing at all, Because, you see, I can't take no shape or form. It's been three long years since I've been gone. I can't get used to purgatory, you know it really makes me cry. I'll never know the reason why I had to go. Oh, oh, I'm crying, Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me. Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah can't you see me? I'm looking forward to her spirit coming over to me. I feel tempted to bring her over to see just what it's Like to be hanging on the other side. I feel so lonely, it's a long time since I died. I try to show her that she's never gonna be alone, Because my spirit is imprisoned in the twilight zone. Oh, oh, I'm crying, Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me. Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah can't you see me?
Total Eclipse(Steve Harris/Dave Murray/Clive Burr) Cold as steel the darkness waits, it's hour will come A cry of fear for the chosen worshipping the sun Mother natures black revenge on those who waste her life War babies in the garden of Eden shall turn our ashes to ice CHORUS: Sunrise is gone, freezing up the fires Sunrise is gone, numbing all desires Sunrise is gone, Sunrise is gone Around the world the people stop with terror-stricken eyes A shadow cast upon them all to crush them like a fly In the icy rain and whiplashed seas there's nowhere left to run The hammer blows of winter fall like a hurricane REPEAT CHORUS Around the world the nations wait for some wise words from their leading light You know it's not only madmen who listen to fools "Is this the end" the millions cried clutching their riches as they died Those who survive must weather the storm SOLO Gone are the days when man looked down They've taken away his sacred crown To be so free, it took so long It's not the journeys end, it's just begun
That Girl(Andy Barnett/M. Goldsworthy/P. Jupp) (Note: Original by FM, on album Indiscreet.) The words she said turned out why desperation fills her eyes Hold her in your arms don't let go When you taste defeat, when you loose again Fight and win, never give in Hold her in your arms don't let go BRIDGE: That girl you need Gonna knock you off your feet That girl, you know She'll never let you go CHORUS: That girl, That girl, That girl you need That girl, That girl, That girl, That girl Can you hear her call, call out your name Think about you, cry without you Hold her in your arm Don't let go Can you taste defeat, when you loose again Fight and win, never give in Hold her in your arms don't let go REPEAT BRIDGE REPEAT CHORUS SOLO REPEAT CHORUS (x2) You need!
