Maybe, just maybe
Naughty girls need love too

I’ve been told time and time again
That you can’t treat love like a game
But I play rough with hearts that never mend
‘Cause some guys like you do the same
Love was just a four-letter word
Never heard, how absurd, how could it be
But now I can’t believe this is real
How I feel, now you steal my heart away from me

Used to be so good and so bad
Sex was something I just had
Used to always know what to do
Now you’ve got me confused

Baby don’t let me be misunderstood
Temporary love’s so bad, but it feels so good
Then along came you, now I know it’s true
Naughty girls need love…too

Then came you
Then came you

Yes it’s true, I’m in love with you
And believe it baby, this time your love won’t get away
Stay here, in the place to be – we can get busy my way
For six forevers and a day-ay-ay
Ooh, it’s only you I adore
So much more then my body was asking for
Yes, your love is breaking my chill
Even still, there’s a thrill in my heart

Samantha Fox was such a wild dame, huh, but what’s in a name
(S-S-Samantha S-S-S-S-Samantha Fox!)
No more fun and games of the mind – let’s get busy 1 time

Whoah!

So moving like you’re forty
This groove is much too naughty
Can’t you see, I want you just for me
Boys, make some noise
Girl, I want to shower you with diamonds and…
Please don’t tease, if you lie my heart will freeze
Freeze, freeze, freeze, freeze, freeze, freeze, freeze…

Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you
honey?
Now would I say something that wasn’t true?
I’m asking you
sugar
would I lie to you?

My friends know what’s in store
I won’t be here anymore.
I’ve packed my bags
I’ve cleaned the floor

Watch we walkin’
walkin’ out the door.

Believe me
I’ll make it
make it

Believe me
I’ll make it
make it.
Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you
honey? . . .

Tell you straight
no intervention

to your face
no deception.
You’re the biggest fake
that much is true

Had all I can take
now I’m leaving you.
Believe me
I’ll make it
make it
oh yes
I will

Believe me
I’ll make it
make it.
Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you
honey? . . .

Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you
honey? . ..
My friends know what’s in store
I won’t be here anymore. . . .
Believe me
watch me
watch me –
Believe me
watch me
watch me.
Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you?
Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you? Would I lie to you?

Mommy’s little monster dropped out of school
mommy’s little monster broke all the rules
He loves to go out drinking with the boys
He loves to go out and make some noise
He doesn’t wanna be doctor
or a lawyer gettin’ fat and rich
He’s 20 years old and he’s quit his job
Unemployment pays his rent

His brothers and sisters have tasted sweet success
His parents condemn him say his life’s a mess

He’s mommy’s little monster
He’s not afraid to admit
Mommy’s little monster don’t wake him in a fit

Mommy’s little monster shoots Methadrine
Mommy’s little monster had sex at 15
She left home for the streets
She couldn’t deal with all the heat
She has fun with the boys in the band
in her eyes it’ll never end
Her dad asked what happened to her face
It could have happened at any place

Her eyes are a deeper blue
She likes her hair that color too
She can even wear a dress
But that doesn’t mean she’ll ever confess

She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
Don’t take her life away

Her eyes are a deeper blue
She likes her hair that color too
She can even wear a dress
But that doesn’t mean she’ll ever confess

She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
Don’t take her life away

She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
She mommy’s little monster
Don’t take her life away

Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools

Spineless swine
Cemented minds

Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old shit since 1962

He does the military two-step
Down the nape of my neck

I wanna go home
I don’t wanna stay
Give up education
As a bad mistake

Mid-week on the playing fields
Sir thwacks you on the knees
Knees you in the groin
Elbow in the face
Bruises bigger than dinner plates

I wanna go home
I don’t wanna stay

Da-da-da …

Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools

Spineless bastards all …

Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old jokes since 1902

He does the military two-step
Down the nape of my neck

I wanna go home
I don’t want to stay
Give up life
As a bad mistake

Please excuse me from gym
I’ve got this terrible cold coming on
He grabs and devours
He kicks me in the showers
Kicks me in the showers
And he grabs and devours

I want to go home
I don’t want to stay…

Da-da-da …

Sittin on a window sill but he
Spends his time behind closed doors

Break it up when he opens the door

Things fall apart, it’s scientific

If I were to say to you, can you keep a secret
Would you know just what to do or where to keep it
Then I say, I love you, and foul the situation
Hey girl, I thought we were the right combination

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you’re smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

No rhythm in cymbals, no tempo in drums
Love on arrival, she comes when she comes
Right on the target but wide of the mark
What I thought was fire was only the spark

The sweetest melody is an unheard refrain
So lower your sights, yeah, but raise your aim, raise your aim

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you’re smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

I thought you loved me, but it seems you don’t care
I care enough to know I can never love you

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid
You think you’re smart, that’s stupid
Right from the start when you knew we would part

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart, heart, heart
Shoot that poison arrow

Heart, shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow

I got you – that’s all I want
I won’t forget – that’s a whole lot
I don’t go out – now that you’re in
Sometimes we shout – but that’s no problem

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lyin’

Look at you – you’re a pageant
You’re everything – that I’ve imagined
Something’s wrong – I feel uneasy
You show me – tell me you’re not teasin’

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lyin’

There’s no doubt – not when I’m with you
When I’m without – I stay in my room
Where do you go – I get no answer
You’re always out – it gets on my nerves

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes you can tell that I’m not lying
I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lyin’
I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lying

Copper sun sinking low
Scatterlings and fugitives
Hooded eyes and weary brows
Seek refuge in the night

They are the scatterlings of Africa
Each uprooted one
On the road to Phelamanga
Where the world began
I love the scatterlings of Africa
Each and every one
In their hearts a burning hunger
Beneath the copper sun

Ancient bones from Olduvai
Echoes of the very first cry
"Who made me here and why
Beneath the copper sun?"
African idea
African idea
Make the future clear
Make the future clear

They are the scatterlings of Africa
Each uprooted one
On the road to Phelamanga
Where the world began
I love the scatterlings of Africa
Each and every one
In their hearts a burning hunger
Beneath the copper sun

And we are the scatterlings of Africa
Both you and I
We are on the road to Phelamanga
Beneath a copper sky
And we are the scatterlings of Africa
On a journey to the stars
Far below, we leave forever
Dreams of what we were

I eat filet mignon seven times a day.
My bathtub’s filled with Perrier.
What can I say?
This is the life!

I buy a dozen cars when I’m in the mood.
I hire somebody to chew my food.
I’m an upwardly mobile dude.
This is the life!

They say that money corrupts you,
But I can’t really tell.
I got the whole world at my feet,
And I think it’s pretty swell.

I got women lined up outside my door.
They’ve been waitin’ there since the week before.
Who could ask for more?
This is the life!

You’re dead for a real long time.
You just can’t prevent it.
So if money can’t buy happiness,
I guess I’ll have to rent it.

Yeah, every day I make the front page news.
No time to pay my dues.
I got a million pairs of shoes.
This is the life!

I got a solid gold Cadillac.
I make a fortune while I sleep.
You can tell I’m a living legend,
Not some ordinary creep.

No way, I’m the boss. The Big Cheese.
Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees.
I can do just what I please.
This is the life!

That’s right, I’m the king. Number One.
I buy monogrammed Kleenex by the ton.
I pay the bills, I call the shots,
I grease the palms, I buy the yachts.

One thing I can guarantee.
The best things in life, they sure ain’t free.
It’s such a thrill just to be me.
This is the life!
This is the life!
