Are You Ready to Rock (H. Smalley) I got a feeling in my heart We're gonna tear this place apart I feel something down in my brain You know it's gonna drive me insane Well I see you standing there in the light No way you're gonna put me down tonight I hear ya screamin' out of the night No way baby, better treat me right (Chorus) I said are you, you Ready to rock! I said are you, you Ready to go! I said are you, you Ready to Rock! I said are you, you Ready to go! You know I'm feelin' like I'm outta control Overdose of rock n' roll I'm feelin' something inside of my brain You know it drives a sane man insane But I see ya standing there in the light No way you're gonna stop me tonight I hear ya screamin' out in the night No way, babe, ya better treat me right (Repeat Chorus) C'mon boys, let's go!

Hats Off to Margaret (H. Smalley) Well, alright! She's lookin' real keen She's such a killer queen! She likes to strut her stuff Check it out you'll see what I mean And when she goes out at night She's lookin' all so-so alright, ya! (Chorus) Hats off to Margaret She's the only one I want Hats off to Margaret She's the only one, only one Oh she's hot, she's on fire tonight She's got love burnin' oh so bright You better watch yourself Or you'll get burned It's time you've learned (Repeat Chorus) I said yaaaa!

We're On the Attack (H. Smalley) Nooooo! We've played by all the rules A game played by fools We're gonna start knockin' some heads We're gonna start breakin' the rules Don't try to stop us You’d better stay outta the way If you wanna stay out of trouble You'd better get out of our way (Chorus) We're on the attack We're lookin' for you We're on the attack We're lookin' for you You might think I'm crazy You might be understood If you try to stop us No is the final word, no-o-o-o-o! I am a warrior With you I've come to fight And if you think I'm weak You’d better watch out tonight (Repeat Chorus) We're on the attack!

The Mercenary (H. Smalley) Standing on the gallows Noose around my neck Don't know what I'm gonna do Just a hired killer Workin' for a wage Job I was paid to do Standin' for mercy They don't hear They never answer The life of a hired killer You know it leads down! (Chorus) When the mercenary He gonna fight again When the mercenary He’s gonna fight Fight till the end Just a hired killer Fightin' for a wage Some of us are bound to die Fighting politicians All the politicians They know the reasons why Calling out for mercy They don't hear Never know what I'm gonna do with my life Say, if you want live, If you wanna give You gotta wear the part of me (Repeat Chorus) Mercenary!! No, no, no

Lookin' For Love (H. Smalley) You say you don't want me You say I'm some kind of drip You say you don't want nothin' And I'm some kind of trip Don't believe it, baby Don't let it bring you down Cause I've got the best I've got the best love around (Bridge) Well I ain't superstitious And I don't believe in bad luck at all All I need from you, baby All I need is love right now (Chorus) Cause, I'm back, back Yes I'm back, back And I'm lookin' for love Yes I'm back, back Girl I'm back, back And I'm lookin' for love Yes I'm back, back Girl I'm back, back And I'm lookin' for love Yes I'm back, back Girl I'm back, back And I'm lookin' for love You say I don't want nothing You say I'm a big disgrace Well I'll tell you something This ain't no race But don't believe it baby Don’t let it bring you down Cause I've got the best I got the best love around But I ain't superstitious And I don't believe in bad luck at all All I need from you honey All I need is love right now (Repeat Chorus)

Renegade 04:43
Renegade (H. Smalley) I've tried to live my life Like I've been told I've tried to play by the rules 'Cause then I got bold People say I'm a radical They say I don't know What the truth is But when they look in the mirror They don't know what radical is (Chorus) 'Cause, I'm a renegade And I'll do what I want Renegade and I'll do what I want You say you can't do with your life You can't make your own decisions I'll tell you get to go with the flow You know you go with your inhibitions People say I'm a radical They say I don't know What the truth is 'Cause when they look in the mirror They don't know what radical is (Repeat Chorus)

Sara 04:51
Sara (H. Smalley) Been a long time since I knew The way ya' feeling Feelings come and feelings go Never knowing which one is right Oh how can I resist this love? Oh no, it's just a mystery In a clear black night Then, you came into my life Like a flower in the spring Now you're the one I want You’re my everything I was always used to never knowing What it meant To be loving the best Now you'll be with me now My affectionate (Chorus) Sara will not be alone She won't cry again at night Sara will not be alone She won't cry again at night Been a longtime since I felt this way Now I keep remembering the love You come into my life so unexpectantly Now you'll be with me now til’ eternity (Repeat Chorus)

Porsche Force (M. Smalley) Can't ya feel the force of my porsche Don't ya know that victory lies? In the realms of a course In a world that's cut and dried Can't ya hear me, don't ya fear me I'm a running.... Just like it used to be Round and round sweet ecstasy (Chorus) Can't ya feel Don’t ya know you're under attack? Can't help but wonder If you're coming back You know its onslaught upon the wall You know you're wailing your back to the wall Flowing banners waving high on you Sung out loud by misconstrued Proclamations by the day While your mind just runs astray It's torture upon the rack You're on the top and all alone You want them off your back It's time to let them fall... Can't ya feel Don’t ya know if you're coming back You know its onslaught upon the wall You know you're wailing your back to the wall, wall -all
