01. Rock The Nation

Big wheels are rolling
On thru' the night
We hit the city in the morning
No time to eat or sleep
Six concerts in a week
Take the show across the nation
Could this be San Antone?
Or am I stood in Rome?
Is the real or am I dreaming?
Standing by the backstage door
Just like the one before
We're here to set the spirit free

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Wait for the curtain call
Excitement in the hall
The stage crew ready at their stations
The houselights start to dim
Another show begins
Now it's time to rock the nations
Stand in the flashing lights
The music fills the night
The feeling just goes on and on
We take the last encore
The first of many more
The spotlight takes the final bow

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

Big wheels are rolling
On thru' the night
Daylight comes without warning
North, south, east and west
We'll put you to the test
As we rock across your nation

Give us the stage
Turn on the lights
Fire up the sound
We'll rock the nations

02. Battle Cry

Can you hear the sound
The sound of distant voices
Floating gently 'cross the glen
Can you see the people
The people gathered 'round
They're worshipping their king

They came to hear the story
They came to sing the song

There's talk of a rebellion
The highlands are aflame
From the mountains to the sea
A prince has come to Scotland
To claim his rightful throne
The seeds of war are sown

They came to hear the story
They came to sing the song

Let me hear
Let me hear
Let me hear your battlecry

Let me hear
Let me hear
Let me hear your battlecry

An army marches northwards
To meet the fearless clansmen
For England and St. George
The red coats face the tartan
The battle lines are drawn
The musket and the sword

They came to hear the story
They came to sing the song

Let me hear
Let me hear
Let me hear your battlecry

Let me hear
Let me hear
Let me hear your battlecry

Many men have fallen
The prince has had his day
Culloden was the name
Their battlecry can still be heard
To this very day
Floating gently 'cross the glen

They came to hear the story
They came to sing the song

Let me hear
Let me hear
Let me hear your battlecry

03. Waiting For The Night

You got me spinning, spinning around
I don't know if I'm up or I'm down
I'm coming back to you tonight

My pulse is racing, I'm out of control
My body's aching, it's taken it's toll
I'm coming back to you tonight

This darn freeway's driving me insane
I need a shot, a shot to ease the pain
I'm waiting...I'm waiting for the night
I'm waiting...bring on the night

My heart is pounding, I need you so much
My body's yearning, I long for your touch
I'm coming back to you tonight

I can't wait a minute longer
Every second the feeling get stronger
Coming back to you tonight

This darn freeway's driving me insane
I need a shot, a shot to ease the pain
I'm waiting...I'm waiting for the night
I'm waiting...bring on the night (bring on the night)

You got me spinning, spinning around
I don't know if I'm up or I'm down
I'm coming back to you tonight

I can't wait a minute longer
Every second the feeling's stronger
Coming back to you tonight

This darn freeway's driving me insane
I need a shot, a shot to ease the pain
I'm waiting...I'm waiting for the night
I'm waiting...bring on the night

I'm waiting...I'm waiting for the night
I'm waiting...bring on the night

Bring on the night
Bring on the night
I'm waiting

Bring on the night
Bring on the night
'Cause tonight I'm coming back to you
I'm waiting
Bring on the night
[Fade]

[Additional lyrics included in liner notes but not in the song....]

My mind is drifting, thinking of you
The love you're sending is making it through
I'm coming back to you tonight
The summer sun's still shining bright
Can't last forever, bring on the night
I'm coming back to you tonight


04. We Came Here To Rock

We didn't come for their sympathy
We didn't come for their soul
We didn't come for their bigotry
We didn't come for their gold
We never said we were perfect
We'll lay it on the line
They can stick their censorship
Where the sun don't shine

We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock

We didn't come for their apathy
We didn't come for their lies
We didn't come for their strategy
We didn't come for their wives
Don't tell us how to run our lives
We know what's right and what's wrong
They're just a bunch hypocrites
We came for one thing alone

We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock (came here to rock)

We didn't come for bureaucracy
We didn't come for their views
We don't need their mentality
We don't need their abuse
We've never worshipped the devil
That's just another lie
We just wanna have some fun
Some fun before we die

We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock
We came here to rock

05. You Ain't No Angel

Who's that girl with her pants on fire?
You can feel the heat when you're standing by her
You look so good with your dress real tight
Does your mother know you're out tonight?
You're just sixteen you're on the loose
Your innocence is no excuse

Your mother thinks you're sweetness
You're Daddy's little girl
You may have been made in Heaven
But you ain't no angel
You ain't no angel

You're coming on strong, you're coming on heavy
Wanna mess with the boys in the back of the Chevy?
Let's take a ride, be my back seat lover
You taste so good, you're just like sugar
Now hold on baby, make it last
Does your Daddy know you're learning fast?

Your mother thinks you're sweetness
You're Daddy's little girl
Were you made in Heaven?
'Cos you ain't no angel
You ain't no angel

You ain't no angel
You ain't no angel

Hi boys
What are ya doin' ?
Going for a ride ?
Can I come ?
No, my mother won't mind
I ain't no angel

You ain't no angel
[Repeat to end]


06. Running Hot

Catch me if you can and tame the beast
Should I leave you burning in the heat
Kick the throttle down, I'm on fire
It turns me on the feel the engine's beat

Take it to the highway
On the open road
I want to feel your power
Screaming into overload
She's running hot
She's hot

Coming out of nowhere, moving fast
I gotta keep the feeling
Make it last
Let me feel your body
I'll explode
Together we will run to overload

Take it to the highway
On the open road
I want to feel your power
Screaming into overload
She's running hot
She's hot

She's running hot
She's hot
[Repeat to end]


07. Party 'Til You Puke

Come on everybody
Tonight it's party time
Grab a bottle or a crate
Leave your blues behind
You're gonna need the cavalry
To get you outta here
The last time that we had one
It lasted for a year

We're gonna party
Party till u puke
(These people are sick)

We're gonna party
Party till u puke
Till u puke

Don't worry about the neighbours
They're blind drunk in the loo
There'll be no trouble from the police
'Cos they're all in here too
We got the music cranked right up
It's blowing off the roof
There's people drinking gasoline
It must be two hundred proof

We're gonna party
Party till u puke
(Will someone get me outta here?)

We're gonna party
Party till u puke
Till u puke

(These people are weird!)


08. Empty Promises

I gave you my love
But you threw it straight back in my face
I should have known better
You're just perfume and lace
You're messing around
You're making a fool out of me
But I've had enough baby
I'm setting you free

But I gave you all the chances
I gave you all the signs
Now who's the lonely one
Were you just a waste of time
Empty promises

I remember the days
When it used to be good
We were always together
We both understand
But something went wrong
White turned to black
So I'm leaving you baby
I ain't coming back

But I gave you all the chances
I gave you all the signs
Now who's the lonely one
Were you just a waste of time
Empty promises

But I gave you all the chances
I gave you all the signs
Now who's the lonely one
Were you just a waste of time
Empty promises


10. Northern Lady

Lady face the morning sun
The sunlight in your hair
Northern Lady, you're the one

Why do you mean so much to me
I need you every night
Northern Lady, you're the one

If you need me, I'll be there
I'll fly right back to you
Northern Lady you're the one

Will you use your head tonight
And come into my room
Northern Lady, you're the one
You're the one

Lady face the morning sun
The sunlight in your hair
Northern Lady, you're the one

Why do you mean so much to me
I need you every night
Northern Lady, you're the one

Northern Lady, you're the one
