  • 1. Heavy Fuel
    last time I was sober, man I felt bad
    worst hangover that I ever had
    it took six hamburgers and scotch all night
    nicotine for breakfast just to put me right
    ‘cos if you wanna run cool
    if you wanna run cool
    if you wanna run cool, you got to run
    on heavy, heavy fuel

    my life makes perfect sense
    lust and food and violence
    sex and money are my major kicks
    get me in a fight I like dirty tricks
    ‘cos if you wanna run cool
    yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run
    on heavy, heavy fuel

    my chick loves a man who’s strong
    the things she’ll do to turn me on
    I love the babes, don’t get me wrong
    hey, that’s why I wrote this song

    I don’t care if my liver is hanging by a thread
    don’t care if my doctor says I ought to be dead
    when my ugly big car won’t climb this hill
    I’ll write a suicide note on a hundred dollar bill
    ‘cos if you wanna run cool
    if you wanna run cool
    yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run
    on heavy, heavy fuel
  • 2. Planet Of New Orleans
    standin’ on the corner
    of toulouse and dauphine
    waitin’ on marie-ondine
    I’m tryin’ to place a tune
    under a louisiana moonbeam
    on the planet of new orleans

    in a bar they call the saturn
    and in her eyes of green
    and somethin’ that she said in a dream
    inside of my suit I got my mojo root
    and a true love figurine
    for the planet of new orleans

    new orleans – the other planet
    with other life upon it
    and everythin’ that’s shakin’ in between
    if you should ever land upon it
    you better know what’s on it
    the planet of new orleans

    now I’m tryin’ to find my way
    through the rain and the steam
    I’m lookin’ straight ahead through the screen
    and then I heard her say
    somethin’ in the limousine
    ’bout takin' a ride across the planet of new orleans

    if she was an ace
    and I was just a jack
    and the cards were never seen
    we could have been the king and the queen
    but she took me back to her courtyard
    where magnolia perfume screams
    behind the gates and the granite
    of the planet of new orleans
  • 3. Kingdom Come
    I tell you what
    They don't mess with me, I'm a wild man, son
    I got me my very own anti-tank gun
    I got a jack rabbit with it, guess he was a mean one
    Yeah, I've always been a sportsman
    Now, there wasn't much left when I got to him
    Them big old shells didn't just go through him
    Just lumps of fur and that was it
    Guess you could say he sure took a hit alright
    Yeah, you want to see my fire power, see my collection
    'Cause that's my thing man, perfection
    Now I'm talking power in the barrel of a gun
    I'll blow anything I want 'til kingdom come
    Baba boom
    Baba baba bomb
    And I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
    Yeah, all you got to do is squeeze on the trigger
    And a little bitty human get a whole lot bigger
    Cause there's a time for talking and a time to shoot them down
    And this mama-jama don't pussy foot around, alright
    Yeah, let them laugh, let them say we're strange
    Me, my buddies on the rifle range
    But you won't be laughing when it hits the fan
    You're going to want to be a survivor, man
    Yeah, you want to see my fire power, see my collection
    'Cause that's my thing man, perfection
    Now I'm talking power in the barrel of a gun
    I'll blow anything I want to kingdom come
    Baba boom
    Baba baba bomb
    And I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
    Baba baba boom
    I say we ought to drop the bomb
    Yes, and I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
    I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
    I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
    I'll blow anything I want
    'Til kingdom come
