Money Talks 03:28
Money Talks Well you can buy it all night in the streets Cuz when you flash that green people hear what you say And when you wanna make ‘em kiss your feet Well you just show ‘em cash and they’ll do it all day When you’re a broken down and jobless man The pickens get a little slim so you take what you can And when you’re rich and now you’re feeling high Then you get all the pretty women that money can buy Chorus: I’m tellin’ you Money Talks right out in the streets Money Talks everyone that you meet Money Talks well I’m tellin’ you Money Talks Money don’t ever talk to me The Trickle Down Theory put a crunch on me Money don’t ever come my way I got my car repossessed the other day Well it’s a Monday morning I’m a wastin’ time Standing in that unemployment line Sick and tired of being poor Working nine to fine moppin’ up that floor (Repeat Chorus)

Dyin’ By The Telephone I’m lying here alone and you’re burning up inside of me First you make me love you then you run and hide from me Another lonely night waiting here all alone Another empty night dyin’ by the telephone The whiskey bottle’s empty I finished it a while ago Staring at the TV some black and white late, late show It makes no sense it’s all a hazy blur to me The tears that fill my eyes are making it so hard to see (Chorus) Another lonely night waitin’ here all alone Another empty night dyin’ by the telephone Another lonely night waitin’ for you to call Another deadly night dyin’ by the telephone I’m sitting here waiting praying for you to call Watching my heart as it ticks away on the wall I never thought that you could mean so much to me I’m a prisoner in a cell and your phone call is the only key (Repeat Chorus) The silence is so heavy the darkness I crushing me This loneliness is torture the emptiness is killing me I’m startin’ to slip away I’m fading I can’t breathe I’m gonna die if that telephone doesn’t ring (Repeat Chorus)

Born Loser 03:45
Born Loser Take me on down to the riverside roll me into the bay Words goin’ round that I’m losin’ ground Lord I gotta get away I’m pitiful loser I guess I never ever chose ‘em The headline said you been foolin’ ‘round jumpin’ from bed to bed And you’ve been workin’ real hard makin’ me a clown Why don’t they shoot me in the head? They sure know how to tease me get up and leave me (Chorus) I’m a born lose I guess bad luck is here to stay Born Loser get out of my way The dealer said come and put your money down So I put it all on red Well I’m the king of the losers so I kept my crown I just can’t seem to get ahead They sure know how to tease me never ever leave me (Repeat Chorus) Well the radio said they beamin’ down comin’ from Isopay, Well they took me back up to their lunar town And here I guess I gotta stay Well they sure know how to tease me never ever leave me (Repeat Chorus)

Sexual Stimulation There was some sexual stimulation oh up on my right With the zip-around pants Lord take me through the night Oh we holler out the window Shit we didn’t’ care Hey baby let me get wrapped up in your your long black hair Johnny got the girl but with no cash in his threads So we thought we’d follow to see what’s ahead There he was a big man in the night He was lookin’ for his money He wants to get paid tonight for his lay tonight (Chorus) Take the night Take the night Take the night you got you got nothin’ to say Take the night Out of the bushes we did arise I pulled a 44 I waved it in his eyes I made the man jump back Johnny grab your clothes Jump back jump back I said I shoved that barrel in his nose Oh get off that broad boy this place is gonna blow It’s all just history 0but we got away When we take the night yeah, you might have to pay It’s all a mystery but what can I say? When we take the night Watch out! We also take the day (Repeat Chorus)

I don’t care if you’re hard to take I’m gonna leave my mark all over your face There’s gonna be some dealing cuz my eyes see red Yah know I gave you one chance but now you’re dead You better run, it ain’t no fun you’re gonna feel it when I ‘m dealin’ you some You better fly or say: “good bye” you better run if you don’t wanna die (Repeat Chorus) Let’s go down!

Here Comes Trouble I saw her starin’ at me with a gleam in her eyes Ooh then she moved a little closer well now it came as no surprise I took a swig off the bottle she knew just what to do Oh I won’t have no problems to try to forget about you (Chorus) Here Comes Trouble I like to walk the line Here Comes Trouble It happens every time Well I knew from the start oh I was gonna fry Oh but Lord she had such a body Oh what a body Oh it would make you cry Well I know I’ll hate myself you know it won’t let me down Oh it’ll be my death if the word gets around town (Repeat Chorus) Can’t you feel it? Get ready to rock we’re feelin’ alright Just do some blow to keep it up all night Get ready to rock get ready to roll That little girl’s gonna go for it all She gonna go ha ha.. Ow! Take it all! We’ll now there’s just one thing I want you to understand She was a sweet lookin’ woman sweet lookin’ woman I’m a sweet talkin’ man don’t ya know? Well you know I promised you once I went and did it again You know I see a pretty woman Well here I go again (Repeat Chorus)

Silent Is The Night Voices callin’ from the shadows silent calls from the stygian dark All around in the chill of the night an empty world awaits the night Lonely is the night Thinkin’ of the stars thinkin’ of the dark Silent is the night Whispering winds in an autumn night strange sounds in the still of the night Eyes upon you from everywhere it’s only night and its empty stare Lonely is the night Thinkin’ of the stars thinkin’ of the dark Silent is the night The moon looks down upon the lovers Lonely is the night Where would they be without each other? And after all it’s only the night People sleep the night it soothes Silent is the night The day will come to end the darkness Is the night or is this my life? Silent is the night Life is dead the night is dying time keeps on rollin’ by Dreams playin’ in restless souls the night will come the night will go Lonely is the night Thinkin’ of the stars thinkin’ of the dark Silent is the night Lonely is the night Thinkin’ of the stars thinkin’ of the dark Silent is the night Lonely is the night Thinkin’ of the stars thinkin’ of the dark Silent is the night

about

WIZARD was a local San Francisco Bay Area band during the early to mid-1980s, the heyday of U.S heavy metal. Well on their way to be a contender in the massively over populated West Coast scene, WIZARD would inevitably become another ghost remembered only in stories of yesteryear and what it was like in those rockin’ daze. But before the band disappeared they would release one 7” single later followed up with a full-length album of solid hard rock that could stand up against almost anything else being offered at the time.
