Michael Kamen: 5 song lyrics

Edith Sitwell giving readings
14 Moscow Road
Osbert's giving champagne parties
Sachie's got a cold
Gertrude's hanging pictures
Alice making tea
Me, I do the only thing that still makes sense to me
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock Rock

John and Yoko farming beef
Raising protein quota
Sometimes they make love and art
Inside the Dakota
Rodney's feeling sexy
Mick is really frightfully bold
Me, I do the only thing that stops me growing old
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock Rock
I Do the Rock Rock Rock

It's stimulating

Solzhenitzin feels exposed
Built a barbed-wire prison
Nietzsche's six feet under
But his babies' still got rhythm
Einstein's celebrating ten decades
But I'm afraid philosophy is just too much responsibility for me
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock

Baby Ruth and Dizzy Dean
Best and Colin Cowdrey
Little Mo, Virginia Wade
Pistol Pete and O.J.
I've always liked Di Maggio
And Rockne's pretty Knute you know
I could never whack a ball with such velocity
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock

It's stimulating
I'm a keen student

Liz and Dick and Britt and Liza
Jaclyn, Kate and Farrah
Meg and Roddy, John Travolta
Governor Brown and Linda
Interview and People Magazine
Miss Rona and the Queen
It must be really frightful to attract publicity
I Do the Rock
Myself

Carter, Begin and Sadat
Brezhnev, Teng and Castro
Everyday negotiate us closer to disastro
Idi Amin and the Shah
And Al Fatah is quite Bizarre
I could never get the hang of ideology
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock
I Do the Rock

Sunshine

Baby woke up nervous
She was sweating from the steam heat
Kicked off the covers
Fever burning bright
Paranoia night
Five alarm alert repeats
This city never beats you
But it buries you so deep
And there ain't no love
On the street

Baby's breathing deeply
She's listening to her heart beat
Walks to the kitchen
Dishes in the sink
Baby doesn't think it matters
Maybe read a magazine
And the colored girls go
"Whoop-de-doop-de-doop-ee-doop
Doop-de-doop-de-doop"
'Cause there ain't not love
On the street

Baby needs a frame of reference
Some other place to go to
All-night launderette
Light a cigarette
Jump an usherette
Babe's an all-night diner
She's got a trucker's appetite
And there ain't no love
On the street

Baby's breaking hearts
Baby's breaking dates
Baby's having nightmares
She remembers when she wakes

Well this morning on the radio I heard the DJ say
That the temperature is rising
And it's going to be a real hot day

I took the taxi to the studio at 48th and Broadway
But the engineer was late, made me wait
I said, "Hey man, hey!"
C-c-c-catch me now
Don't let go
C-c-catch me know
Because I'm on a roll
On a roll

Well I only got a minute
And it's such a simple thing to say
You better get it on the first take
I gotta make a matinee
C-c-c-catch me now
Don't let go
Catch me know
Because I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll
On a roll

If you stop to think you'll fall
Gotta go, gotta do, that's all
I've gotta blow because I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll
On a roll
I'm on a roll

C-c-c-catch me now
Don't let go
C-c-c-catch me now
Because I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll!

Freezing on this corner
Waiting for a ride uptown
Really getting restless
Could have walked that far by now
Now it's after midnight
I need a fast ride
I got to get to you somehow
I got to be right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
I can't be one minute late

I would have called a taxi
I couldn't use the lady's phone
She would have gotten crazy
She thinks she's got me for her own
And now the stop light
Feels like a spotlight
I got to get to you right now
I got to be right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
I can't be one minute late

Nikki's at the campsite in the caravan
On the Riviera.
Every night the bugs bite.
Catch her if they can.
But she don't hear of it.
She say, "I'm working on my tan. Oh man. Working on my tan. Oh man.
Working on my tan."

Harvey sing Calypso in the hotel band
But it's just financial.
Playing for the "dipsoes" and the also-ran.
But he ain't anxious, man.
He say, "I'm working on my tan. Oh man. Working on my tan. Oh man.
Working on my tan."

Hunt yourself an island.
Hitch down to the beach.
The sun belong to everyone.
In everybody's reach.
If confined to dry land, heal yourself a beach.
Hey c'mon, son of a gun.
Do I have to teach you what to say?

Take a bus, take a truck.
Take a bus, take a truck.
Take a bus, take a truck.
But take along your good look.

Do it in Jamaica.
Do it in Japan.
Do it in Siberia.
Give us all a break And do it in Iran.
Do it in Afghanistan.

Everybody say-ay.
I'm working on my tan. Oh man.
Working on my tan. Oh man.
Working on my tan.

Sunshine, sunshine.
Sunshine, sunshine.

Working, working.
Working on my tan. Oh man.
Working on my tan.
(repeated to fadeout)
