Lyrics: 

He's everybody’s token on everybody's wall
Blessing all the papers thanking one and all
Hugging all the babies, kissing all the ladies
Knowing all that you think about
From writing on the wall

He's so divine - His soul shines - Breaks the night
Sleep tight

His ever lovin' face smiles on the whole human race
He says " I'm Somebody."

He's got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart
He said " Don't hurry baby,
Somebody up there likes me. "

He's the savage son of the TV tube
Planets wrote the day was due
All the wisest men around - predicted that a man was found
Who looked a lot like you and me, yeah
Anyone with sense could see
That nothing left his eye unmoved
He had the plan - he had to use

He's so divine - His soul shines - Breaks the night
Sleep tight

His ever lovin' face - Smiles on the whole human race
He says " I'm Somebody."

He's got his eye on your soul and his hand on your heart
He says, "Don't hurry baby
Somebody up there likes me."

Somebody plays my song in tune
Makes me, makes me, makes me stronger for you

Was a way when we were young
That any man was judged by what he'd done
But now you pick them on the screen
What they look like, where they've been

Keep your eye on your soul and your hand on your heart
He says " Don't hurry baby,
Somebody up there likes me."

Leaders come and all the people know
That given time the leaders go
Tell me can they hold you under the spell
Or can they walk and hold you as well
as a smile like Valentino?
Could he sell you sell you anything?

Keep your eye on your soul, keep your hand on your heart
He says " Don't hurry baby,
Somebody up there likes me."

Somebody, somebody, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah can't remember peace so well
Oh, space to ramble, space to boogie

Soul shine
So divine
Somebody
etc.

Lyrics: 

We got to use her

Every time I feel
Fascination
I just can't stand still
I've got to use her
Every time I think
Of what you pulled me through dear
Fascination moves
Sweeping near me
Still I take ya

chorus:
Fascination
Sure 'nuff
Takes a part of me
Can a heartbeat
Live in the fever
Raging inside of me?
Fascination
Oh yeah
Takes a part of me
I can't help it
I've got to use her
Every time
Fascination comes around

Your soul is calling
Like when I'm walking
Seems that everywhere I turn
I hope you're waiting for me
I know that people think
That I'm a little crazy,
But pleasure seeks this thing
I think I like fascination
Still, tick

chorus (2x)

Lyrics: 

Me, I hope that I'm crazy
I feel you driving and you're only the wheel
Slow down, let someone love you
I never touched you since I started to feel
If there's nothing to hide me
Then you've never seen me hanging naked and wired
somebody lied but I say its hip
To be alive

chorus:
Now your smile is spreading thin
Seems you're trying not to lose
Since I'm not supposed to lose
All you've got to do is win

Me I'm fresh on your pages
Secret thinker sometimes listening aloud
Life lies dumb on its heroes
Wear your wound with honour, make someone proud
Someone like you should not be allowed
To start any fires

chorus: (2x)
Now your smile is spreading thin
Seems you're trying not to lose
Since I'm not supposed to lose
All you've got to do is win

Lyrics: 

They pulled in just behind the fridge
He lays her down - he frowns
"Gee my life's a funny thing
Am I still too young"
He kissed her then and there
She took his ring, took his babies
It took him minutes, took her nowhere
Heaven knows she'd have taken anything

CHORUS
All night - she wants the young American
Young American, young American, she wants the young American
All right - but she wants the young American

Scanning life through the picture window
She finds the slinky vagabond
He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang
Heaven forbid she’ll take anything
But the freak and his type - all for nothing
Misses a step and cuts his hand
Showing nothing he swoops like a song
She cries " where have all papa's heroes gone?"

All night - she wants the young American
Young American, young American, she wants the young American
All right - well she wants the young American

All the way from Washington
Her breadwinner begs off the bathroom floor
"We live for just these twenty years
Do we have to die for the fifty more"

All night - he wants the young American
Young American, young American, he wants the young American
All right - but he wants the young American

Do you remember your President Nixon?
Do you remember the bills you have to pay
or even yesterday?

Have you have been an un-American
Just you and your idol singing falsetto
'Bout leather, leather everywhere
and not a myth left from the ghetto
Well, well, well, would you carry a razor
In the case, just in case of depression?
Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors
Blushing at all the afro-sheeners
Ain't that close to love?
Well ain't that poster love?
Well it ain't that barbie doll
Her heart's been broken just like you have

All night- you want the young American
Young American, young American, you wants the young American
All right - you want the young American

You ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler
A pimp's got a cadi and lady got a Chrysler
Black's got respect - white's got his soul train
Mama got cramps and look at your hands ache
I heard the news today oh boy
I got a suite and you got defeat
Is there a man who can say no more?
And ain't there a woman I can sock on the jaw?
And ain't there a child I can hold without judging?
Ain't there a pen that will write before they die?
Ain't you proud that you've still got faces?
Ain't there one damn song that can make me break down and cry?

All night - I want the young American
Young American, young American, I wants the young American
It's all right - I want the young American
