Wiggle That Wotsit (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Wiggle
Wiggle that
Wiggle that wot
Wiggle that wotsit

Wiggle that wotsit
Shakin that shimmy
Bring it up to me
Ring a ding a ling me
Turn me on

Wiggle that wotsit
Shake it up, shake it down
Serve me up another round
Rub a dub hug me
Turn me on

Lord you know how crazy it makes me
You turn my insides out
The pleasure in the pain is so excruciating
It makes me wanna shout
Give me a hard time

Wiggle that wotsit
Shakin that shimmy
Bring it up to me
Ring a ding a ling me
Turn me on

Wiggle that wotsit
Shake it up, shake it down
Serve me up another round
Rub a dub hug me
Turn me on

Break

Shakin that shimmy
Bring it up to me
Ring a ding a ling me
Turn me on

Wiggle that wotsit
Shake it up, shake it down
Serve me up another round
Rub a dub hug me
Turn me on

You gonna blow my dynamo
My wheel's ain't gonna touch the ground
Heaven knows how I'll cope with the situation
It makes me wanna shout
Give me a hard time

Wiggle that wotsit
Shakin that shimmy
Bring it up to me
Ring a ding a ling me
Turn me on

Wiggle that wotsit
Shake it up, shake it down
Serve me up another round
Rub a dub hug me
Turn me on

Wiggle that wotsit

48 Hour Parole (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
I'm gettin out and steppin' in
To somewhere where it's warmer
First come will be first served
You'd better put in your order

Been out in the cold far too long
Gonna set the town on fire (fire)
If you're not with me you better step aside
This boy's out for the kill kickin' higher

Oh 48 hour parole,
But I got to be a good boy
Oh 48 hour parole

Toein' the line ain't my style
And I ain't looking for trouble
I wasn't born I was carved out of stone
So don't try bustin' my bubble

Oh 48 hour parole,
But I got to be a good boy
Oh 48 hour parole

Break

I'm gettin out and steppin' in
To somewhere where it's warmer
First come will be first served
You'd better put in your order

Been out in the cold far too long
Gonna set the town on fire (fire)
If you're not with me you better step aside
This boy's out for the kill kickin' higher

Oh 48 hour parole,
But I got to be a good boy
Oh 48 hour parole

Oh 48 hour parole,
But I got to be a good boy
Oh 48 hour parole

Oh 48 hour parole,
But I got to be a good boy
Oh 48 hour parole

 

Thanks For The Memories (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Smile from the wall is all I need
Even though it ain't the real thing
Sepia shades, signature signed
Thanks for the memories

Something else on the shelf
I pass by every day
I reach out and touch and I feel good
Thanks for the memories

Restaurant booked for one
I'm sittin' at a table for two
People think I'm on my own
But I know that ain't true

Don't shed no tears for me
I'm happy this way
To have loved and lost is better
Than no love at all

Break

Don't shed no tears for me
I'm happy this way
To have loved and lost is better
Than no love at all

Friends come by to wish me well
Say hey you must be feelin' down
But a smile from the wall is all I need
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories

 

My Love (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love
Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love

Please don t take my advances too lightly
My intentions are of the highest kind
Don't be hasty, let the feelin' come straight from your heart
You've been burned too many times before

Accept my love, I'm gonna give it to you
Please don't forsake it and take it and make it my love

I can see what you're thinkin' but I won't let you down
Let your love show and don't think of the past
Come tomorrow you'll be happy with the feeling you've found
I'm no fool and I ain't clownin' around

Accept my love, I'm gonna give it to you
Please don't forsake it and take it and make it my love

And if you should want to throw it all away,
It'll be you who doesn't want to
Want to make me stay
Come on and do it my way

Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love
Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love

And if you should want to throw it all away,
It'll be you who doesn't want to
Want to make me stay
Come on and do it my way

Please don't take my advances too lightly
Let your love show and don't think of the past
Accept my love, I'm gonna give it to
Please don t forsake it and take it and make it
Please don t forsake it and take it and make it
Please don t forsake it and take it and make it my love

Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love
Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love
Ooh my love, ooh, ooh, ooh my love

 

Lady Of The Night (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Chilled to the bone I see a lady
Stalkin' like a black cat in the night
Shivers down my spine my mind's racin'
Wonderin' why the lady's taken flight

Ooh ooh lady of the night
Ooh ooh lady of the night

Can't be a dream, reality's no liar
It's not my imagination running wild
But to suddenly appear when I'm no high flyer
It's got me so confused but tantalised

Ooh ooh lady of the night
Ooh ooh lady of the night

Break

Don't be confused if you don't know what I'm saying
I'm lettin' you in to what's happenin' my friend
One of these nights she's gonna get you
You'll experience just what I'm goin' through, yeah

Ooh ooh lady of the night
Ooh ooh lady of the night

 

Russian Roulette (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Back street dive down in New Orleans
Gambler shows his face
The place was full of jacks and queens
But I never came up with that bread-winning ace

Whisky's cheap at twice the price
When it kills the pain of bad tumbling dice
The scene's all set for an IOU
Give it one more spin then that's me I'm through

The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red
The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red

Lost my shirt, headed for the bar
Gonna drown my sorrows in a whisky jar
Head hung low because I got beat
I see a hundred dollar bill layin' at my feet

The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red
The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red

Break

Headed for the tables, I'm wearin' my shades
Got to find me a lucky green top,
Can't be one I've played
My hands are shakin' don't wanna lose my cool
Should I keep the big C or gamble like a fool

The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red
The wheel's like a chamber in Russian roulette
I'm takin' a chance and I'm gunnin' for red

 

Draggin' My Heels (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
First at the gate post but the last one through
I hung around far too long for you
Left out the game, left out the deal
Stupid of me to be draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels, heels

Time waits for no one and I wasted my time
Got to the crossroads but took the wrong sign
I'd go too far, didn't know how she'd feel
Stupid of me to be draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels, heels

Break

If I had the chance to go back again,
I wouldn't do the same
I learned by mistakes
I'd be on my knees I'd be there to please
I'd be anything you want me to be
You want to be

First at the gate post but the last one through
I hung around far too long for you
Left out the game, left out the deal
Stupid of me to be draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels
Oh oh oh draggin' my heels, heels

Heels, heels

 

Louise (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Louise
Coming on strong, can't be too long
Gotta get what my body needs
It needs Louise

Louise
Gonna break my heart, gotta make a start
Gotta get it together with Louise
Ooh Louise

Queen in blue jeans,
Boppin' at the hop
Alive with the jive
Rollin' with the rock
Louise

Baby gonna move like lightning
Don't blink your eye
The speed I'm gonna do is frightening

Everybody move on over
I'm electrified
The speed's comin' through like a nova

Louise
Coming on strong, can't be too long
Gotta get what my body needs
It needs Louise

Louise
Gonna break my heart, gotta make a start
Gotta get it together with Louise
Ooh Louise

Queen in blue jeans,
Boppin' at the hop
Alive with the jive
Rollin' with the rock
Louise

Break

Sparks are gonna fly igniting
Mr Dynamite I'm burnin' up the night
To light ya

Get ready for the big explosion
Call in the reserves there's gonna be
A chain reaction

Louise
Coming on strong, can't be too long
Gotta get what my body needs
It needs Louise

Louise
Gonna break my heart, gotta make a start
Gotta get it together with Louise
Ooh Louise

 

Be With You (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
All I want is you
I want to hold your hand
Please let me be your friend
Just got to be with you

We don't need to dance
Don't need no outside friends
Just we two,
I got to be with you

It's a moonlit night
We're gonna be alright
Nobody else in view,
Just wanna be with you

Ah, wanna be with you
Ah, wanna be with you

Take you up on love
You're gonna want to stay
Never comin' down
just want to be with you

Wanna see you smile
I'm gonna make you feel good
That's when you'll say
I just wanna be with you

Ah, wanna be with you
Ah, wanna be with you

Break

All I want is you
I want to hold your hand
Please let me be your friend
Just got to be with you

It's a moonlit night
We're gonna be alright
Nobody else in view,
Just wanna be with you

Ah, wanna be with you
Ah, wanna be with you

Ah, wanna be with you
Ah, wanna be with you

 

Daddy Don't Mind (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Sass 'E' Frass and Joe 'D' Glow
Headin' out to the picture show
Sweet innocence not yet 18
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see

Heavy chevy, soft top down
One arm driver, the other arm around
Switched on hi fi rock'n'roll
Gunnin' the engine heading for the open road

Given strict instructions
Not to fall for no seductions
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
Joe had no such orders
Gonna try and cross the border
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see

Sass makes the move she straightens her seams
Joe checks in the mirror he thinks he's James Dean
He pulls on over says he's got a flat
Sass is no fool she knows where he's at

Given strict instructions
Not to fall for no seductions
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
Joe had no such orders
Gonna try and cross the border
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see

Break

She's had love and she's had kissin'
Knows what she's been missin'
No turnin' back for little Sass 'E' Frass
Will they be standin' side by side
If their love they cannot hide?
No turnin' back for little Sass 'E' Frass

Sass 'E' Frass and Joe 'D' Glow
Never made it to the picture show
Sweet innocence thrown out the door
She'll never be the same no more

Given strict instructions
Not to fall for no seductions
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
Joe had no such orders
Gonna try and cross the border
Daddy don't mind what daddy don't see

Ooh, daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
Ooh, daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
Ooh, daddy don't mind what daddy don't see
