Go to the woman like a switchblade knife
Baby says we're gonna break the law tonight
Ooh...if your daddy could see you now

Rock'n'Roll rebel on a jailbreak run
This operator but a little high strung
There's one in every crowd

"You got coming to you, it happens every time
That's what you get for a life of crime
You got it coming to you, if you cross the line" (Chorus)

And you can't back up, when the going gets tough
And if you fly that high you'd better get some...

Slow down sister, you're burn, burn, burnin', at the speed of light
Better slow down sister
Put on tile brakes or you won't get through the night

She don't love you, gonna shoot to thrill
I tell you that little girl's kiss could kill
She got me standing on a one way street

Can't break the chains, the ties that bind
Slave to the rhythm and my heart's in time
Beware the taste is bittersweet

*Chorus*

When the lights go down, and you hit the ground
It'll happen so fast,....

Slow down sister
I said look out now, danger in a little girl's eyes
Slow down sister
Well you're gonna find out there's trouble in paradise
..that ain't nice...

You'll never stop party your butterfly ball
Dressed in the black, if you think you've done it all
Come on now baby, you know it's true

You want all the money and the price of fame
Ride to glory on another man's name
Now there's a lesson here for you

*Chorus*

And you can't back up, when the going gets rough
And if you fly that high you'd better get some...

Slow down sister, you're burn, burn, burnin', at the speed of light
Slow down sister
No,no..
Put on ....., never gonna fool tonight

I said look out now, there's danger in a little girl's eyes
Slow down sister, slow down ,slow down
Well you're gonna find out there's trouble..trouble in paradise

I said slow!
