Get it up, get ready for a real good time. I'm gonna try to blow your mind.
Can't you see? You and me. It sounds so nasty.

Get it up, let your hair hang down. We could fool around.
Don't you know? I want you so. Make me happy.

Get it up, there's nothin' wrong. We're freakin' all night long.
Me and you. We need a groove. It feels good, do it.

Get it up, leave your cares behind. Let me try to find.
Find the spot. That gets you hot. Let me do ya.

What time is it?
Get it up, get ready for a real good time. I'm gonna try to blow your mind.
Can't you see? You and me. It sounds so nasty.

Get it up, let your body drip. Let me take you on a trip.
Can't you see? You're killin' me. You're so freaky.

Get it up. Get it up. I'll work you all night.
Get it up. Get it up. All night.

Girl

length: 5:37
Girl, I called you up to say,
that I'm havin' trouble sleepin' ever since you went away.
Girl, I know you need a little time,
to get your head together. But baby, I can't stop cryin'.

[Chorus]
Girl, why'd you go away?
What can I say to make you stay?
Girl, I was a fool.
I don't know what to do.
I'm still in love with you.

I'm still in love with you, baby.
Girl, I guess I was a fool,
to try to tie you down and make you play by the rules.
Girl, I guess I finally realized,
that keepin' you close to me, it would keep me alive.

[Chorus]

Don't know what I'm gonna do.
Girl, what can I say baby, to make you stay?
Girl, I don't know what to do. No I don't.
I'm still in love, still in love, still in love.

Girl, down on my knees. Oh baby, please.
Girl, oh baby, please. I'm still in love with you.

I'm still in love with you.
Called you up to say, Baby, I still love you.
I'm still in love, I'm still in love.

After Hi School

length: 4:23
Every day is more the same old thing.
But in the spring, I'm gonna graduate from hi school.
Then I won't have to live by anybody else's rules.
Everybody tells me things don't stay the same.
If you wanna live, you gotta play the game.

(chorus)
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?

But there's a lot of stuff that I could learn to do in my world.
Learn to drive a truck or maybe even join a band.
My parents tellin' me I got to go to college.
I won't get anywhere if I don't have the knowledge.
Uncle Sam keeps sending letters in the mail.
If you don't register, you're gonna go to jail, gonna go to jail.

(repeat chorus)

Listen to me, listen to me!
Hey you, what you gonna do?
Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?

I'm talkin' to ya, you stupid slob!
Get a job you bum!

I'm talkin to you.


Cool

length: 10:07

I got a penthouse in Manhattan, two more in Malibu.
I bought a '87s Cadillac Seville, girl I got a Mazarati too.
I wear diamonds on my fingers, I got a couple on my toes.
I wear the finest perfume money can buy, it keeps me smellin' like a rose.

If you wonder how I do it, there's just one simple rule.
I'm just cool. Honey, baby, can't you see?
Girl, I'm so cool. Ain't nobody bad like me?

C O O L.
What's that spell? - C O O L.

I might dine in San Francisco, dance all night in Rome.
I go any freakin' place I want you, and my lear jet brings me home.
I got ladies by the dozens, I got money by the ton.
Just ain't nobody better, heaven knows that I'm the one.

And it's all because of something that I didn't learn in school.
I'm just cool. Honey, baby, can't you see?
Girl, I'm so cool. Ain't nobody bad like me?

Sing it baby. - C O O L.
What's that spell? - C O O L.
That spell cool. - Cool.
What time is it?

Listen baby, it takes a lot of lovin' and a little money to be a friend of mine.
But baby, if you know how to shake that thing, I'll try to squeeze a little time.
Cuz I make love, love every mornin' to who's ever by my side.
Well, you might say that I'm a nymphomaniac, but it keeps me satisfied.

When I look into the mirror, it just tells me something I already know.
I'm so cool! Honey, baby, can't you see?
Girl, I'm so cool. Ain't nobody bad like me?

Sing it. - C O O L.
What's that spell? - C O O L.
What time is it? - Cool.
I'm so cool.

Cool, that's right. I'm cooler than Santa Claus, baby.
Ain't nobody bad like me? Somebody pinch me.
I must be dreamin', I know that's right.
Cuz there ain't nobody bad like me.
What time is it?
Is it time to get my hair done yet?
I said, "What time is it?"?
Time to just walk and shake my head.
I'm cool 'til I'm dead.
Enough has been said, Come on baby, let's go to bed.
Everybody. - Walk, shake my head!
Cool 'til I'm dead!
Enough has been said, let's go to bed!

When I look into the mirror, It just tells me something I already know.
I'm so cool. Ain't nobody bad like me?
I'm so cool. I said, ain't nobody bad like me?

All together now. - C O O L.
What's that spell? - C O O L.

Band? - Yes!
Is anybody hot? - No!
You know why? - Why?
Cuz we're cool. - Cool!

Yes! No! Why? Cool!

Oh, I'm so cool

Oh, Baby

length: 4:59
Oh baby, we're all alone.
Nowhere to go, no telephone.
Just you and me and this big old bed.
You ain't got nowhere to go.
You might as well stop being so cool.
Honey, baby, break down.

Oh baby, take off your clothes.
Do it over by the window.
Feel the wind blow.
That's the atmosphere.
Ooh baby, come here.

Oh baby, honey take your time.
Cuz when you come, you come and come.
That's when I get mine.
Until then, I said honey, "Close your eyes".

Yeah, oh baby.

Oh baby, baby, don't make me wait.
Don't make me wait.
Oh, no, no, I can't stand it, baby.
Don't make me, don't make me wait, girl.
Oh, no, no, no, girl.

What's it gonna be, baby?
You know I can't wait.
Please, please. You know you ain't got nowhere to go.
We've come this far, come on.
Oh, baby.

Break down, baby.
Go on and break it all down.
Give me your love.
Give me your mind.
Break down!

Oh, baby, let me do ya please.

The Stick

length: 8:23
My stick. I just love my stick.
Mmm, my stick. I just love my stick.

Girl, your ride is bad but you can't compare.
To my baby black Cadillac, oh so rare.
Take a vacation, I don't care.
Cuz I can get some stimulation anywhere.

(chorus)
You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride.
You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride.
Girl, you come to quick, much, much to quick.
Girl, you come to quick, I'll just work the stick.

Offer me your body, I have to pass.
Cuz every time we make love, you run out of gas.
Girl, my car's so bad it runs on H2O.
Now you can't compete, it's got the cruise control.

(repeat chorus)

I've been drivin' baby, since the age of 13.
I'm the baddest driver you've ever seen.
You know I like it fast and I like it slow.
Sometimes I let the top down when I wanna let go.

You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride.

What time is it?
I said, what time is it?

You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.

Somebody bring me a mirror so I can uh ... What song we on?

You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride.

What time is it?

I'm just alright, oh no.
I don't need you, baby, I'll just work the stick in my ride.
I don't need your action, baby.
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride.

You just come to quick, I'd rather work my stick.

It's about time to go.
I said, I don't need you girl.
Somebody bring me a mirror.
So I can look at my stick.

Hey, alright? You wanna see it?
Should I take it out?
Take it out, man.

Hey, later y'all.
