                       Side One


Happy little day, Jimmy went away
Met his little Jenny on a public holiday
A happy pair they made, so decorously laid
'Neath the gay illumination
All alone the promenade
"It's so good to know
There's still the little magic in the air
I'll leave my spell."
"Jenny will you stay - tarry with me pray
Nothing 'ere need come between us
Tell me love, what do you say."

"Oh, no I must away to my Mum in disarray
If my mother should discover
How I spent my holiday
It would be of small avail
To talk of magic in the air
I'll say farewell."

O Rock of Ages, do not crumble,
Love is breathing still
O lady moon, shine down a little people
Magic if you will.

Jenny pines away, write a letter everyday
"We must ever be together,
Nothing can my love erase."
"Oh, no I'm compromised, I must apologies
If my lady should discover
How I spent my holiday..."


She keeps Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
`Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy for Khrushchev and Kennedy
At any time invitation you can't decline
Caviar and cigarettes well versed in
Etiquette extraordinary nice

She's a Killer Queen qunpowder, getaline
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind anytime
Recommended at the prise
Insatiable an appetite. Wanna try?

To avoid complication she never kept
The same address, in conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined
Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise.

Drop of hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentary out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild...

Recommended at the prise
Insatiable an appetite. Wanna try?


My new purple shoes,
Bin' amazin' the people next door
And my rock'n'roll 45's, bin' enragin'
The folks on the lower floor.

I got a way with girls on my block
Try my best be a real individual
And when we go down to Smokies and rock
They line up like it's some kinda ritual.

Oh, give me a good guitar, an' you can say
That my hair's a disgrace
Or, just give me an open car, I'll make
The speed of light outta this place.

I like the good things in life
But most of the best things ain't free
And this same situation, just cuts
Like a knife when you're wrong,
When you're poor, when you're crazy.



Dislocate your spine if you don't sign
He say I'll have you seeing double
Mesmerized you when he's tongue-tied
Simply with those eyes.
Synchronize your minds and see
The beast within him rise.

Don't look back, don't look back
It's a rip-off
Flick of the wrist and you're dead, baby
Blow him a kiss and you're mad
Flick of the wrist - he'll eat your heart out
A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the heat
He's taken an arm and taken a leg
All this time honey baby you've been had.

Intoxicate your brain with what I'm saying
If not you'll lie in knee-deep trouble
Prostitute yourself say
Castrate your human pride
Sacrifice your leisure days
Let me squeeze you till you've dried

Don't look back, don't look back
It's a rip-off
Work my fingers to my bones
I scream with pain
I still make no impression
Seduce you with his money-make machine
Cross-collateralize, ( big-time money, money )
Reduce you to a muzak-take machine
Then the last goodbye
It's a rip-off.



I am forever searching high and low
But why does everybody tell me no
Neptune of the seas
Have you an answer for me, please
And the lily of the valley doesn't know.

I lie in wait with open eyes,
I carry on though stomy skies,
I follow every cause my kingdom for a horse,
But each time I grow old
Serpent of the Nile relieve me for a while
And cast me from your spell and let me go.

Messenger from Seven Seas has flown
To tell the king of Rye he's lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace
But the lily of the valley doesn't know.


Here I stand look around,
Here I stand look around,
Here I stand look around,
But you won't see me
Now I'm here, now I'm here, I'm just a...
Just a new man, yes you made me live again.

A baby I was when you took my hand
And the light of the night burned bright
And the people all stared didn't understand
But you knew my name on sight whatever came
Of you and me America's new bride to be
Don't worry baby, I'm safe and sound
Down in the dungeon just Peaches'n'me
Don't I love her so.

A thin moon me in a smoke-screen sky
Where the beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With a rain running down my face
Your matches still light up the sky
And many a tear lives on in my eye.

Down in the city just Hooplen'n'me
Don't love him so
Whatever comes of you and me
I love to leave my memory with you
Now I'm here think I'll stay around     } 3 times
We'll be down in the city just you'n'me
Don't love you so.


I live my life for you
Think all my thoughts with you, and only you
Anything you ask I do, for you
I touch your lips which mine
But in the end I leave it to the Lords
Leave it in the lap of the Gods.

What more can I do
Leave it in the lap of the Gods,
I leave it to you
Leave it in the lap of the Gods,
Leave it in the lap of the Gods,
I want to you leave it in the lap of the Gods,
Lap of the Gods.

                       Side Two

            (Mercury, May, Taylor, Deacon)

Sleeping very sound ly on a saturday morning
I was dreaming I was Al Capone
There's a rumor going round, gotta clear
Outa town I'm smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the Law, gonna, break down the door,
Gonna carry me away once more
Never, never, never get it any more
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy stone cold crazy know.

Rainy afternoon I gotta blow typhoon and
I'm playing on my slide trombone
Anymore, anymore, cannot take it anymore
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy stone cold crazy crazy, you know.

Walking down the street, shooting people
That I meet with my rubber tommy water gun
Here come the deputy, he's gonna and
Getta me I gotta get me get up and run
They got the sirenes loose I ran right outa
Juice they're gonna put me in a cell,
If can't go to heaven will they let me go
To hell crazy stone cold crazy, you know.


So dear friends your love has gone
Only tears to dwell upon.
I dare not say as the wind must blow
So a love is lost, a love is won.

Go to sleep and dream again
Soon your hopes will rise and then
From all this gloom life can start anew
And there'll be no crying soon.


Don't you miss fire fill me up
With the desire to carry on
Don't you know honey, that love's a game
It's always hit or miss, so take your aim
Got to hold on tight, shoot me out of sight
Don't you misfire, don't you misfire...

Your gun is loaded, and pointing my way
There's only one bullet, so don't delay got
To time it right, fire me through the night
Come on, take a shot, fire me higher
Don't you miss this time
Please don't misfire, please don't misfire.


Bring back, bring back, bring back
That Leroy Brown - yeah, that Leroy Brown - yeah.

Bet your bottom dollar bill you're playboy
Daddy Cool with a ninety dollar smile
Took my money out of gratitude
And he git right outa town - well
I gotta getty up, steady up, shoot him down
Gotta hit that latitute - babe.


Big bad Leroy Brown he got no common - no, no
He got no brains but he sure gotta lot of
Style can't stand no more in this here jail
I gotta rid myself of this sentence
Gotta get out the heat, step into the shade
Gotta get me there dead or alive - babe
Wooh, big bar Leroy,
Wooh, big bad Leroy Brown - well.


Big Mama Lulu Belle
Had a nervous breakdown
(She had a nervous breakdown)
Leroy's taken her honey chile away
But she met him down at the station
Put a shot gun to his head and unless
I be mistaken this is what she said
"Big bad, big boy, big bad Leroy Brown
I'm gonna get that cutie pie".


Big bad caused a mighty fine sensation
Gone and got himself selected President
(We want Leroy for President)
Next time, you gotta hit
A bitty baddy weather
This time, like a shimmy, shammy leather
He's a big boy, bad boy, Leroy
I don't care where you get him from
Bring that big bad Leroy back
Want him back.


I love she makes me
She is my heart, she is my love
I know I'm jealous of her
She makes me need, she is my love
Who knows who she'll make me.

As I lie in her cocoon and the world
Will surely heal my ills
She makes me so
I know the day I leave her
I'll love her still she is my love,
She is my love.

She knows where my dreams will end
I'll follow as they grow
But the world will know
How long I'll take
And if I'm very slow she make me so
She is my love.


It's so easy, but I can't do it
So risky - but I gotta chance it
It's so funny,
There's nothing to laugh about
My money, that's all
You wanna talk about..
I can see what you what me to be
But I'm no fool
It's in the lap of the Gods
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool.

No beginning, there's no ending
There's no meaning in my pretending
Believe me, life goes on and on and on
Forgive me when
I ask you where do I belong
You say I can't set you free from me
But that's not true
It's in the lap of the Gods.
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool.
It's in the lap of the Goods.
But that's not true,
It's in the lap of the Gods.
