Track Name: One And Only Drive (That's Your Life)
Everything was perfect
It was predictable
Come rain and shine
And if we had to crack walls
We did it fine
Nothing left to lose, we didn´t care
What price the world
And if you ask me how we did it
We´re just never looking back

Ey Buddy wazz up, when d´you
Plan to wake up and take a ride
Once and for all!
It´s 5 to 9 limited is your time
So use it wise!

That´s your life your one and only drive
Just too precious to be sacrificed
That´s your life your one and only drive
Just too precious to be sacrificed
Well isn‘t it?

If you ever get caught
When it´s you that hits the floor
When your life is flashing before your eyes
You´ll cry for more
Just imagine this week
Were your last days on earth
Would you carry on slaving away
And pretend that it´s still worth
What comes to your mind when you go
Close your eyes and push rewind
What you´re gonna find?

Is there a story to tell
When you put your grand son to bed
Or were you blind?

That´s your life your one and only drive
Just too precious to be sacrificed
That´s your life your one and only drive
Just too precious to be sacrificed
Track Name: Mexico Song
Why do they play that crap on the radio
And just ignore the songs I wrote
Gotta move myself to Mexico
Where they don´t care ´bout radio

Met a studio guy, said to best in town
In Austro-Pop a VIP
But I refused to change to German – Hey!
Dude, that´s not what I wanna be
Got an attitude

That´s my latitude I can offer
If you can´t meet me halfway
Sorry, dude, we gotta part!

Why do they play that crap on the radio
And just ignore the songs I wrote
Gotta move myself to Mexico
Where they don´t care ´bout radio

A singer buddy called me recently
They´re pretty big in tribute scene
They´d share a gig with us on only one condition
It´s just our bands name gotta change

Got an attitude
That´s my latitude I can offer
If you can´t meet me halfway
Sorry, dude, we gotta part!

Back in the early days
Was told to ban my smile
To put on a tough, cool face
I shouldn‘t look so cute
At the promo shoot
But set up a pokerface

Well you know what?
That´s just not gonna work out
The smile is here to stay
And I´ll keep it up as long as I can
As long it´s here I know it´s me

Got an attitude
That´s my latitude I can offer
If you can´t meet me halfway
Sorry, dude, we gotta part!

I keep on making my own playlist
I am the DJ in my car
Let´s have a party of the cool kind
And you´ll be just who you are!

I keep on making my own playlist
I am the DJ in my car
Let´s have a party of the cool kind
And you´ll be just who you are!
Track Name: Our Fists Against The Dirty Biz
By any means you got reasons
For being self-confident
You got some issues to deal with
Take a hundred percent

No more trying to meet their
Self-serving policies
Now come on raise your voice
So everybody can see

The time is ripe for hallelujah, hope and fray
Well, fate may play in your favor someday

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our fists against the dirty business
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our voices as antagonists
Come on, raise your voice
Make some noise
Long as we do, hey yeah
We got the choice
Our heart is the weapon to defeat that hate
Come on, stand up for what you got to say

Curb this madness for god´s sake
We gotta stop that mistake
We can save the defenseless
No matter what it takes

Turning away is easy
Awareness is just a start
Action is glorious
Just listen to your heart!

The time is ripe for hallelujah, hope and fray
Well, fate may play in your favor someday

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our fists against the dirty business
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our voices as antagonists
Come on, raise your voice
Make some noise
Long as we do, hey yeah
We got the choice
Our heart is the weapon to defeat that hate
Come on! Stand up for what you got to say

If you´ve been shaking your boots
We pick you up and rub off the dust
Going back to our roots
You´ll be surprised you can be robust

Vulnerable for so long
Weak individually
Together we can be so strong
United and breaking free

The time is ripe for hallelujah, hope and fray
Well, fate may play in your favor someday
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our fists against the dirty business

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Our voices as antagonists, come on
Raise your voice
Make some noise
Long as we do, hey yeah
We got the choice
Our heart is the weapon to defeat that hate
Come on, stand up, for What you want

We can be Strong, been blind for too long
Let´s get together, we can make it better
I got to, I got to, I got to take it serious
Track Name: Mhmmmargarita
It was a bar in Santa Fé, New Mexico
There was a gay waiter, he was ready to go
I asked him „what would you recommend?“
And then he laughed out loud and
Off he was my friend
Well, after five minutes as he finally came back
He brought me something to drink
That made my pupils go black

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!

Me and my band, we were drinking some
Lots and some more
We had a funny conversation
´bout one thing you should know
Well, what you should know,
I can´t remember somehow
Call it conclusion of the day,
What we´re talking about
My sixth glass
And the things start twisting
You should try it yourself,
That´s how she´s kissing

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!

I had one, I had two
I had a third one, how many had you?
No chance man, that I had ten!
No I´m not gonna pay that motherrockin´check!
They chucked us out, push came to shove
But was the first drink ever,
That I fell in love!

Margarita! Margarita! Margarita! Margarita!
La Senorita! Margarita! Con Tequila!
Track Name: Nothing But Rock 'n' Roll
Now listen, do you hear that
The drums are ready to rock
Watch that! Can you feel it?
The bass is ready to shock
A slight guitar for the start quite right
I´m raising my voice we are ready to fight!

Do you wanna party now
Or what for did you troop?
You´re looking pretty curious
No signs of getting drooped
I got a strong intention
This rock show´s getting hot
And I sense your looks on my face
Are you ready to rock?

We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna get ya heat up the hall
Hard rockin‘ sound with screaming guitars
Just let it out and you will be the stars
We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna make ya jump and shout
Whoever dares, get up the stage
And show us how to be all the rage

Those crazy lights
Keep on dazzling my eyes
You´re trying to hypnotize me
Am I getting that right?
You rockers here and everywhere
I can´t see you at all
Come on closer to the stage
Or are you really afraid?

Get closer everybody, merge with the sound
Is the music taking over
I feel the bass drum in my heart
Am I losing my mind
Seems like I cannot stop
And I gotta keep on shakin´
Shakin´ shakin´ shakin´ YEAH!

We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna get ya heat up the hall
Hard rockin‘ sound with screaming guitars
Just let it out and you will be the stars
We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna make ya jump and shout
Whoever dares, get up the stage
And show us how to be all the rage

You want us to turn down
Now you can´t really mean that
You came to party now you cannot deny
Just watch those happy faces,
It´s such a good mood
You simply gotta like it – it´s Rock´n´Roll

Look at that crazy crowd!
And we´re still pulling in
One day we´ll be an army
Just you wait and see
No one can slow us down
We´re so totally on the run
And if we go to hell, we´ll do it well!

We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna get ya heat up the hall
Hard rockin‘ sound with screaming guitars
Just let it out and you will be the stars
We want nothing but Rock´n´Roll
We´re gonna make ya jump and shout
Whoever dares, get up the stage
And show us how to be all the rage
Track Name: Take A Walk Outside Your Mind
We‘ve seen the shows that overwhelmed us
We were sold on soli and learned to love guitars
There were moments of glory, meaningful side glances
And we fell in love with distorted smiles and guitars

Have you ever felt the power of a flashbulb flurry?
Or been struck by the thunder of Phil Rudds big bang?
Did you ever see the lightening of a hellish hot fire show?
And felt the storm of a sweeping sing along part?

The time has come to take a walk outside of your mind
You´ll for sure never fly, when you stick to the ground
Doesn´t matter where you are, enter your wonderland
Sparkling and shine, as you cross the line

D´you know the feeling that comes with first chords?
The moment you‘ve been waiting for
You´re standing in line with guys from far away and
Step Out of the dark when you finally see the light

The time has come to take a walk outside of your mind
You´ll for sure never fly when you stick to the ground
Doesn‘t matter where you are enter your wonderland
Sparkling and shine as you cross the line
Track Name: Motherrocker
Have you ever been the short one?
That everybody looked down on?
Would it be you if they pulled ones leg?
First one to be teased?
Kicked out, knocked to the ground?

Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!

I just wanted to go shopping for joy
When all of a sudden, there popped out a boy
He blew his stack at me, I just said „What the f@=)?“
Excuse me, kid, don´t you have somewhere to go?“

Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!

I was accosted by a lout in the bar
„Honey wanna move ya cowgirl butt in my car?“
We´re not on a honey basis, no way!
But cowgirl spurs I can show you straight away!“

Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!

Once in a while I face something obscure
Seems to be a girl thing but I´m never quite sure
Call each other “BFF”, sweet talk hardcore, Start to
Badmouth right that girl as she walks out the door

Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rock that mother mother!
Hey, you! Motherrocker, rockin´ mamas shout!
Track Name: Live To Ride
A new day has begun
Since you´re always on the run
You put your leather pants on
And you get ready to ride
You love the sun but you don´t mind the rain
No clouds inside and you get ready to ride

Live, live to ride,
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride
Live, live to ride
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride

Miles are passing by, but you keep moving on
The tank is filled with fuel
That´s the only thing that counts
No need to stop, can go on quite long time
Just stop for gasoline,
Then you´re ready to ride

Live, live to ride,
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride
Live, live to ride
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride

Don´t mind the time, the highway´s mine
Just me and my baby like a true nature child
Born to be wild on a one-way ride
Playin´ Rock´n´Roll all over the world

Live, live to ride,
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride
Live, live to ride
Live to Rock´n´Roll and live to ride
Track Name: Just Needs a Start
A journey of a thousand miles
My grandma used to say
(Used to say in that way)
Must begin with a single step
If you don’t wanna stay
(Want to stay everyday)

No one said its easy, no one holds you up
If you gotta go and you feel it in your blood
Just focus all your power get your strategy
Leave troubles behind, get ready to be free

Take a baby step baby,
It´s that easy, just needs a start
Can take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
Never gonna stop
Freedom´s calling loud
Got the gypsies blood
Pumping through my heart
Oooh yeah! Take a baby step baby
The journey´s the reward, just needs a start

Utopia no longer a pipe dream
But your chance of things to change
And don´t you believe
If someone tells you else

You will see when the first one´s done
The other´s come too
You may have gotten stuck
But you´ve got to straighten up
You will smile and count the steps
All the time

Take a baby step baby
It´s that easy, just needs a start
Can take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
Never gonna stop
Freedom´s calling loud
Got the gypsies blood
Pumping through my heart
Oooh yeah! Take a baby step baby
The journey´s the reward, just needs a start

My parents home might be their castle
Every time they get back home
Well we like it too but I´ve learned one thing
And I´ll never let go again

My home is where the bed is
I don´t need much more
Luxury is overrated for sure
And even if it´s just a pillow, I´ll be fine

Take a baby step baby
It´s that easy, Just needs a start
Can take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
Never gonna stop
Freedom´s calling loud
Got the gypsies blood
Pumping through my heart
Oooh yeah, take a baby step baby
The journey´s the reward, just needs a start
Track Name: Rockabadooba
I got a brand-new guitar
It´s so much hotter than you are
I´m playing the chords
It takes me towards – the top!

I just can´t stop strummin´
I´m still whisteling and hummin´
I howl like a dog, Can´t get out
I´m on top!

Rockabadooba! I get an urge
Rockabadooba! Gotta stay the course
Rockabadooba! It´s gettin´ hot
Rockabadooba! Freak out and rock!

Got a case of rockin´ pneumonia
Or even boogie woogie flu
Whatever it is, it´s rumbling
Wachoo!

Just shut my eyes and take it
I simply can´t help shakin´
Yo well I could stop but then
I rattle and I start again!

Rockabadooba! I get an urge
Rockabadooba! Gotta stay the course
Rockabadooba! It´s gettin´ hot
Rockabadooba! Freak out and rock!
Alright, let´s go guys!

Rockabadooba! I get an urge
Rockabadooba! Gotta stay the course
Rockabadooba! It´s gettin´ hot
Rockabadooba! Freak out and rock!

Ye-ee-ye-ee-ye-ee-yeah
Rockadabadooba you can say that loud again!
Doo-ee-you-ee-you-ee-YOU!
Grooooovy-Doozy-Woozy- you acclaim, we take a bow!

It´s getting louder – we´re going crazy –
Rockabadooba – is what we give ya
It´s getting later – and now it´s over –
You like it? You can get it on cd!
Track Name: Tornado
Head out on the motorway
Finally back on the road
Full speed and all power
That the blasters hold

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! We´re back on the road
Oh alright! Like a…

We´re rollin´, we´re rockin´and rollin´
To where the street leads
Always on the limit, no one stop us now

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! We´re back on the road
Oh alright! Like a… tornado!

Played some shows on southern grounds
Awesome nights though
If you want it too, we´ll come back
And that´s for sure

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! We´re back on the road
Oh alright! Like a… tornado!
Like a tornado!

Sometimes people ask us
„Why are you holding on to this Rock´n´Roll?“
Well, if you go out there
And you check out the crowd
When they scream, you just wanna do it
It feels like a Tornado
And you know - we like it loud!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! We´re back on the road
Oh alright! Like a…
Tornado!
Track Name: Keep On Rocking
Electric spot, you catch a shock
I gotta move, there is a groove
We can´t get out, we like it loud
You´re not allowed, follow the crowd

We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die
We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die

Pink colored hair, and zebra fur
Studded belt, and leather wear
Girls in short skirts, it starts to hurt
Just take it off, it´s happy hour

We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die
We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die

Aim Rolling Stones, and Aerosmith
Just gotta do it, the way we want
We have all time, in the world
Never too old, for Rock´n´Roll

We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die
We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die

We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die
We´re alive as long our hearts keep rocking
We keep on rocking ´till we die
Track Name: Voodoo Rock Puppet
Something is around, somebody is in town
Do you feel the vibration, can you feel it is near?
We got it in our pocket, just need some of your hair
Or anything personal, so be aware

It´s the Voodoo Rock Puppet

It´s weird, so handy it´s dirty and now it´s here
