02. Crusader (6:35)


Crusader, Crusader, please take me with you
The battle lies far to the East
Crusader, Crusader, don't leave me alone
I want to ride out on your Quest

I'm waiting, I'm waiting, to stand by your side
To fight with you over the sea
The're calling, they're calling, I have to be there
The Holy Land has to be free

Fight the good fight (*)
Believe what is right
Crusader, Lord of the Realm
Fight the good fight
With all your might
Crusader, Lord of the Realm

We're marching, we're marching to a land far from home
No-one can say who'll return
For Christendom's sake, we'll take our revenge
On the pagan from out of the East

We Christians are coming, with swords held on high
United by Faith and the cause
The Saracen heathen will soon taste our steel
Our standards will rise 'cross the land

(Repeat *)

To battle, to battle, the Saracen hordes
We follow the warrior king
Onward, ride onward, into the fight
We carry the sign of the cross

Warlords of England, Knights of the Realm
Spilling their blood in the sand
Crusader, Crusader, the legend is born
The future will honour your deeds
(Repeat *)

03. A Little Bit Of What You Fancy (3:51)


When I hit the ground, I was on the run
I was born, the seventh son
I came up fast, just wanting more
Always running from the law
My father said, now slow down son
Life for you has just begun

A little bit of what you fancy always does you good (*)
A little bit of what you fancy always does you good

Don't stop me now, I'm running wild
I've always been a restless child
I was born to rock and roll
Mmm, it's in my soul
I've got my Ford, she's long and black
Who needs a fucking Cadillac

(Repeat *)

I sleep all day and I'm up all night
I don't get paid, but that's alright
Don't put me down, I've had enough
I'll stand and fight
When I hit the ground, I was on the run
I was born the seventh son

(Repeat *)

04. Sailing To America (5:05)


Excitement in the air
There's a journey to prepare
They check the food and water's all on board

They're waiting for the tide
The sails are open wide
They're sailing to a better place to dwell

They're sailing to America (*)
Fly the banners high
They're sailing to America
Set the rigging high

The quayside's full of friends
A farewell in their hands
No-one knows if they will reach the shore

As Plymouth slips away
They'll not be back again
They're sailing off towards the promised land

(Repeat *)

They're sailing to America
Fly the banners high

The Mayflower's on her way
Set sail for many days
The lookout searching for the distant shore

Anchored in the surf
Their journey's at an end
The pilgrims set their feet on virgin land

(Repeat *)

05. Set Me Free (3:14)


Gagged, balled and chained
Feels just the same
Hands on the wall
Maybe you're just playin' games
Set me free

Mauled by a hound
Hangin' around
Is this for real
I don't know when I'll be found
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you

Taken by force
By you of course
Far from my bed
I know I'd rather be dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you

Fire in my brain
Burn me insane
Making your mark
Don't leave me here in the dark
Set me free

Call me a Saint
That's what I ain't
Inside my head
Maybe I'd feel better dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you

Set me free

06. Just Let Me Rock (4:12)


You can take away the money
You can take away the gold
You can tell me it's the truth
You know it isn't so

You can say that I'm a vandal
When I ain't done nothing wrong
You can say you've had a good time
When you've really thought it bad

Just let me rock
You can take away the profit
You can give away my share
You can tell me it's a diamond
When it's just a piece of glass

You can tell me I've got nothing
When I hold it in my hand
You can say a scrap of paper
Was a contract that I signed

Just let me rock

You can take away my heroes
You can take away the pride
You can tell me I can trust you
Then you take me for a ride

You can say I'm drinking water
When I'm really drinking wine
You can say I'm really clever
Then you laugh behind my back

Just let me rock

07. Bad Boys (Like To Rock 'N' Roll) (3:25)


Step right up and ring the bell
This carousel's going straight to hell
When the metal's hot and the music's loud
And your head is spinning round and round

Bad boys like to rock and roll (*)
Bad boys like to rock and roll

Hold on tight, don't let go
If you wanna rock, just let me know
Tonight's the night, we're back in town
We're all cranked up and ready to go

(Repeat *)

We'll suck you in and spin you round
We can turn your power on
Can't stop now, just feel the rush
Just give me more, can't get enough

(Repeat *)

08. Do It All For You (4:44)


I'll climb the tallest mountain
I'll swim the deepest sea
I'll do anything, baby
Anything to set you free

If you're lost and I can't find you
Somewhere in the night
I'll be there beside you
To make you feel alright

You're standing in the darkness
I can show you light
Nothing stands between us
That love can't make right

I'll do it all for you (*)
I'll do it all for you

When your world is full of sadness
And the feeling just goes on and on
I'll be there

If you're standing on the edge
And scared of looking down
I'll be there to catch you, if you fall

If you're trapped inside your heartache
And you can't find escape
Come with me and break away
Don't matter what they say

(Repeat *)

09. Rock City (3:17)


Drive time, prime time
Your time, my time
You better get ready, ready to rock

DJ, VJ,
Radio, Video
Crank it up Mama, the time is right

AM, FM
It's your choice
Looking for the rockshow, make some noise
Play some crazy rock 'n' roll
Don't stop now, just give me more

You want it, we got it (*)
Rock City

Nightlife, streetlife
My life, your life
Rockin' the airwaves, all night long

Hi-fi, Sci-fi
Hear my words
We've been a long time coming, but we're here at last

Dream out, scream out
Jam out, rock out
I hear guitars screaming in my head
Play some crazy rock 'n' roll
Don't stop now, just give me more

(Repeat *)

10. Run For Your Lives (3:51)


Danger, danger, there's something in the air
Faster, faster, be careful, you better beware
I had a dream last night, I saw you burn
Someone screaming out, screaming out the words

Run for your lives, they set the place on fire (*)
Run for your lives, the flames are getting higher

Burning, burning, fire in the night
Higher, higher, the flames are shining bright
I've got nowhere to run, I was blinded by the light
There's someone screaming out, sreaming in the night

(Repeat *)
