Lyrics

1. Psycho Therapy

[Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Ramone]

Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy
That’s what they wanna give me
Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy
All they wanna give me

I am a teenage schizoid
The one your parents despise
Psycho Therapy
Now i got glowing eyes

I am a teenage schizoid
Pranks and muggings are fun
Psycho Therapy
Gonna kill someone

Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy

I like takin’ Tuinal
It keeps me edgy and mean
I am a teenage schizoid
I am a teenage dope fiend

I am a kid in the nut house
I am a kid in a psycho zone
Psycho Therapy
I?m gona burglarize your home

Psycho Therapy
Psycho Therapy

2. C’mon And Love Me

[Paul Stanley]

She’s a dancer, a romancer
I’m a Capricorn and she’s a Cancer
She saw my picture in a music magazine

When she met me, said she?d get me
Touched her hips and told me that she’d
let me
I took her hand, baby, this is what i said,
I said

Baby, baby, don’t you hesitate
‘Cause I just can’t wait
Baby, won’t you take me down on my knees
You can do what you please
C’mon and love me

I’m a man, I’m no baby, and you’re lookin’
every inch a lady
You’re good lookin’ and you’re lookin’ like
you should be good
You were distant, now you’re nearer
I can feel your face inside the mirror
The lights are out and i can feel you, baby,
with my hand

So
Baby, baby, don’t you hesitate
‘Cause I just can’t wait
Baby, won’t you take me down on my knees
You can do what you please
C’mon and love me
[repeat chorus]

3. Delivering The Goods

[Tipton, Downing, Halford]

Feelin’ like we’re ready to kick tonight
No hesitatin’, bodies aching
Lookin’ for some action, satisfaction alright

Chargin’ vein pace as active as one hundered
solid proof
Megaton leviathan load ready to hit the roof

You better watch out and hold on tight
We’re headin’ your way like dynamite

Deliverin’ the goods

Shake down rockin’ boys
Crack that whip strap mean

Pulse rave air waves
Vitalizin’ every place we’ve been

Stealin’ your hearts all across the land
Hot blood, doin’ good
We’re gonna burn you with our brand

You better watch out and hold on tight
We’re headin’ your way like dynamite

Deliverin’ the goods

Oh, we don’t pull no punches
We aim where the crunch is
Bound to do the most damage to your brain

If you’re lookin’ for it mellow
You’re nothin’ more than yellow
Gonna do it again and again
We’ll beat you to submission
So you might as well surrender
You gotta learn your lesson
‘Cuz there ain’t nobody here to defend ya

Faster, higher
Till it seems that we’re gonna break

Shootin’, further
Givin’ more than you’re ever gonna take

Leavin’, your heads
Crashed out on the floor

Beggin’ for mercy
Be careful or we’ll do it some more

You better watch out and hold on tight
We’re headin’ your way like dynamite

Deliverin’ the goods

4. What You’re Doing

[Lee, Lifeson]

Well, I see you standin’ there with your
finger in the air
Everything we do, you wanna leave it up
to you
Who do you think you are’
You think you are a star
Tryin’ to run the town
Always tryin’ to put us down
Well, you think that you’re right
You think you’re out of sight
Tell me something mister
Why’d you have to make us so uptight’
Well you say you’ve been tryin’
You know that you’re lyin’
I think you need some groovin’
Who do you think you’re foolin’ now’
Well you better start changin’
Your life need rearrangin’
You better do some talkin’ or you better do
some walkin’ now

Yeah, you think that you’re right
You think you’re out of sight
Tell me something mister
Why’d you have to make us so uptight’

I know what you’re doin’
All that you been doin’ wrong
I don’t know what you’re feelin’
Oh, but you been feelin’ long

Well, you think that you’re right
Tell me something mister why’d you have to
make us so uptight’

5. Little Wing

[J. Hendrix]

Well she’s walking
Trough the clouds
With a circus mind
That’s running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and
fairytales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind

Oh, when i’m sad
She comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me free

It’s alright she said
It’s alright
Take anything you want from me
Anything..
