David Lee Roth – Knucklebones lyrics

When the fire burns
'Neath a zombie moon
Ya feel the winds of chang
Oh the drums will tell the tune
And you know it's true

Can ya feel the geat
Of the setting sun
Burning up the streets
This beat has got mixed blood
And I know it too

But now her mama's got hte eyes
Like she's workin' on a heart attack
A fella never can tell
And I'm about to go bananas
With the "when ya comin' bcack?"

So we're hittin' the road
And we're pumpin' thunder
Mama look out for down below
Get the show on the road
I's the feeling we're under
You can feel it right down

One of these dark nights
Asthe saying goes
There's some dirty work
To be done down by the crossroads
Ans I know it's true

Ain't no use waitin'
For your invitation
King Kong never had it so clean
We'll do the Fat Cat Shake
We'll have our cake and eat it too
You coukd never, no, no, no, never, beat this squeeze!

Because we're hittin0 the road
And we're punpi' thunder
Mama look out for down below
Get the show on the road
It's rally no wonder
You can feel it right down

Must be the heat
Stop dreamin' and start drivin', Stevie
(Repeat chorus).
