Outta My Way

Outta my way, keep outta my way
Outta my way, I ain't playin' around
Outta my way, keep outta my way
Outta my way, I've got to cover ground

I've got what it takes
And I'm on the attack
Goin' after the prize
And nothin's gonna hold me back, ho

Outta my way, keep outta my way
Outta my way, you're gonna pay
Outta my way, keep outta my way
Outta my way, don't you get in my way
Outta my way, keep outta my way
Outta my way, don't you get in my way
Outta my way, keep out of my way

Winning Is Everything

Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
It isn't how you play the game
Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
I want everybody to know my name

I'm aiming for success
Gonna do what it takes
If someone gets hurt
Well, them's the breaks
If you wanna reach the top
Don't let anybody stop you

Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
I ain't cut out for second string
Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
So go find another song to sing

I'm aiming for success
Gonna do what it takes
If someone gets hurt
Well, them's the breaks
If you wanna reach the top
Don't let anybody stop you

Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
I ain't cut out for second string
Winnin' is everything, winnin' is everything
So go find another song to sing

Winnin' is everything
Winnin' is everything
Winnin' is everything
Winnin' is everything

Makin' Mischief

We're makin' mischief
We're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
And we're really gettin' in it
Mischief, we're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
And we love it every minute
We've almost gone berserk
Doin' all this dirty work

We're makin' mischief
We're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
And we're really gettin' in it
Mischief, we're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
And we love it every minute
We've almost gone berserk
Doin' all this dirty work

We're makin' mischief
We're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
And we're gettin' into trouble
Mischief, we're makin' mischief, (makin' mischief)
And we're causin' things to bubble
We're pullin' it apart
Turnin' it around
And we ain't gonna stop
Till the whole thing runs aground

We're makin' mischief
We're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
No need to keep it quiet
Mischief, we're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
Causin' things to riot

Mischief, we're makin' mischief (makin' mischief)
No need to keep it quiet
Mischief, we're makin' mischief, (makin' mischief)
Causin' things to riot
Mischief, we're makin' mischief, (makin' mischief)
We're really makin' mischief

Takin' It All

When you've got it, you've got it
No need to be shy
When you've made it, parade it
Shout it to the sky
We're takin' it all, makin' it a clean sweep
Surprise, surprise, we're claimin' the prize
And makin' the final leap
And takin' it all
(Takin' it, takin' it, we're takin' it all)

When you've won it, you've done it
No need to be coy
So shutout, so strut out
Cause you should enjoy
We're takin' it all, makin' it a clean sweep
Surprise, surprise, we're claimin' the prize
And makin' the final leap
And takin' it all
(Takin' it, takin' it, we're takin' it all)

The game is near the end
They can't reverse the trend
Victory's in store
Baby, it's time to roar

We're takin' it all
(Takin' it, takin' it, we're takin' it all)
We're takin' it all
(Takin' it, takin' it, we're takin' it all)
We're takin' it all
(Takin' it, takin' it, we're takin' it all)

Universal Appeal

It's a total eclipse
The moon's overtakin' the sun
It's a total eclipse
We're comin' to grips
You'll be left in the shadows
When I get done
For I've got

Universal appeal (universal appeal) baby
Universal appeal (universal appeal)

Halley's comet's got nothin' on me
(Nothin' nothin')
I'm the brightest star in the galaxy

Universal appeal (universal appeal) baby
Universal appeal (universal appeal)

I keep growin' bigger each day
Soon I'm gonna outshine the Milky Way
In my own mind's eye, I am the sky
So why should I be shy
When I've got

I've got (universal appeal) universal appeal
I've got (universal appeal) universal appeal
I've got (universal appeal) universal appeal
I've got (universal appeal) universal, universal
Universal appeal

Congratulations

Welcome To The Jungle

There's an animal on the loose
She's a creature on the prowl
There's an animal on the loose
And she's gettin' ready to howl

Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
She don't care
She ain't the type that plays it fair
Welcome to the jungle

There is danger in her eyes
As she moves in on her prey
There is danger in her eyes
If you're smart, keep out of her way

Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
Watch your back
At any second, she'll attack
Welcome to the jungle

If you see her smile
Better run because
In a little while
She'll reveal her claws

Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
Welcome to the jungle
(Welcome to the jungle)
Welcome to the jungle

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Don't give me no hard luck story
I've got problems of my own, huh
I've got a hunger deep inside me
And my hunger's grown and grown, yeah

So gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I want it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I need it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme)
Or I'll take it and make it mine

Don't tell me no tales of glory
Charity begins right here, here
I'm lookin' out for number one
Do I make my message clear (you hear)

So gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I want it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I need it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme)
Or I'll take it and make it mine

Don't expect no gratitude
The only thing I give for free is attitude

So gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I want it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme), I need it
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme)
Or I'll take it and make it mine
So gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme)
Gimme, gimme, gimme (gimme)
Gimme

You Can't Catch Me

You can't catch me, however you try
I'm always one step in front (yeah)
You can't catch me, you wanna know why
Baby, I'm gonna be blunt
You're too far beneath me
Below me, in every single way
People who know me think you're below me
And they all agree
You can't even come close to me (no)

You can't catch me, you're wastin' your time
You might as well give up now
(You can't catch me)
You can't catch me, I'm tellin' you
I'm gonna slip by you somehow

You may think I'm cornered but babe
I guarantee, you're aren't quick enough
Clever or slick enough, to ever catch me
You can't even come close to me (no)

You can't catch me (you can't catch me)
You can't catch me (you can't catch me)
You can't catch me (you can't catch me)
You can't catch me (no)

You Gotta Be Fast

In this world there's one thing you need
You gotta be fast, you gotta be fast
If you wanna stay in lead
You gotta be fast
You gotta be fast
You gotta be fast

The world belongs to the major movers
The ones who keep up a relentless pace
If you ain't up to their fast maneuvers
You're gonna wind up in second place
You're gonna wind up with egg on your face

All the prizes go to the swift
You gotta be fast, you gotta be fast
Baby, baby are you gettin' my drift
You gotta be fast, you gotta be fast
You gotta be fast

Slow and steady don't win no races
Slow and steady comes in last
If you wanna come up aces
Baby, baby, you gotta be fast
And baby, you're comin' in last

You gotta be fast
(You gotta be fast, you gotta be fast)
You gotta be fast
(You gotta be fast, you gotta be fast)
You gotta be fast

Designing Woman

Other girls play helpless and coy
Moonin' over this or that boy (yeah)
Other girls feel hopeless and trapped
But me, I've learned to adapt

I'm a designing woman (I've got what it takes)
I'm a designing woman (I make my own breaks)
I'm a designing woman (designing woman)
And I've got designs on you

Huh, I know girls who sit home all day
Watching their lives just fritter away (oh)
Clipping coupons, flippin' the dial
But me, girl, that ain't my style

I'm a designing woman (I've got what it takes)
I'm a designing woman (I make my own breaks)
I'm a designing woman (designing woman)
And I've got designs on you

I've got what it takes
To make my plans come true
And baby, baby, have I got plans for you

I'm a designing woman (I've got what it takes)
I'm a designing woman (I make my own breaks)
I'm a designing woman (designing woman)
And I've got designs on you
I'm a designing woman

We're Off And Runnin'

Here we are, pullin' out of the station
Here we go, without a moment's hesitation
Here we come, a brilliant new sensation
We're doin what we were born to do
Gang way, we're comin through

We're off and runnin' and no one can stop us
We're off and runnin, nobody can top us
More than looking good, we're lookin' stunnin'
We're off and runnin', huh huh huh huh
huh huh huh huh

We may have our ups and downs
But we're still better than the rest of the clowns

We're off and runnin' and no one can stop us
We're off and runnin' and nobody can top us
More than looking good, we're lookin' stunnin'
We're off and runnin'
We're off and runnin'
We're off and runnin'

I Am A Giant

(I, I, I, I am) gonna make you realize
(I, I, I, I am) like a comet on the rise
No one can top me

Towerin' above it all (I, I, I, I am)
Strong and defiant

You Oughta See The View From Here

This is the place where we belong
Over at the top, riding on a song
You oughta see the view from here
It's fabulous (and so are we)

You oughta see how things appear
When you are up in the stratosphere
You oughta hear how the people cheer
When you are fabulous, like us

We feel right at home
Looking down on those below
All you little people with your dreams so small
(We are totally above it all)

You oughta see how things appear
When you are up in the stratosphere
You oughta hear how the people cheer
When you are fabulous, like us

You oughta see how things appear
When you are up in the stratosphere
You oughta hear how the people cheer
When you are fabulous, like us

You oughta see how things appear (things appear)
When you are up in the stratosphere (stratosphere)
You oughta hear the people cheer (people cheer)
When you are fabulous (fabulous) like us
(You oughta see how things appear)

Who Is She Anyway?

She acts like a queen
If you know what I mean
But she's in for a big surprise
(Who is she)
She thinks she's the best
But I'm not impressed
And I'm gonna cut her down to size
(Who is she)

Who is she anyway
She ain't so fine (who is she)
Who is she anyway
What's she got that's better than mine

Faith and hope, and brotherly love
Is all she talks about (who is she)
I can't cope with all her heart tuggin'
It makes me wanna scream and shout
(Who is she)

Who is she anyway
She ain't so fine (who is she)
Who is she anyway
What's she got that's better than mine
(Who is she anyway)
What's she got that's better than mine
(Who is she anyway)
Who is she

There Ain't Nobody Better

(There ain't nobody better)
Comin' down the pipe
(There ain't nobody better)
They're all alike
(There ain't nobody better)
Do you read me loud and clear
(There ain't nobody better)
Than the girl who's standin' here

(There ain't nobody better)
Waitin' round the bend
(There ain't nobody better)
I'm the livin' end
(There ain't nobody better)
Am I comin' through to you
(There ain't nobody better)
Than the girl you're talkin' to

I'm above the rest
Baby, I'm the best
There never gonna be nobody
Who's as good for you as me
Who's as good for you as me
Me, me, me, me

(There ain't nobody better)
Comin' down the pipe
(There ain't nobody better)
They're all alike
(There ain't nobody better)
Do you hear me loud and clear
(There ain't nobody better)
Than the girl who's standin' here

(There ain't nobody better)
There ain't nobody better
(There ain't nobody better)
Can you hear me
(There ain't nobody better)
Don't you love what you see
(There ain't nobody better)
I'm the best

There ain't nobody better than
Nobody better than me

We're The Misfits In Hawaii

Aloha
We're misfits in Hawaii, singin' a Hawaiian song
We're misfits in Hawaii, we wear a sarong
But it looks so wrong
We're misfits in Hawaii, seein' the Hawaiian sights
We're misfits in Hawaii, we spend all our nights
Scratching insect bites

We've been to the beach and returned
And oh did we get burned (ouch)
We bask in the tropical breezes
We got seven tropical diseases (acho cough cough)

We're misfits in Hawaii, sleepin' in Hawaiian huts
We're misfits in Hawaii, turning into Hawaiian nuts
We're misfits in Hawaii
We're misfits in Hawaii
We're misfits, misfits in Hawaii

The Queen Of Rock And Roll

He he he he he he, listen
Baby, can't you see
You are lookin' at royalty
I possess the crown
Cause I'm the best thing goin' round

I am the queen of rock 'n roll
I got the rhythm in my soul
I am the queen of rock 'n roll

Every song I sing
Becomes the latest thing
I sit on the throne
Cause I'm the best thing the world has known

I am the queen of rock 'n roll
I got the rhythm in my soul
I am the queen of rock 'n roll

I am the queen of rock 'n roll
I got the rhythm in my soul
I am the queen of rock 'n roll
The queen
