A Letter From Death Row Soundtrack





Bret Michaels first ever solo album, the soundtrack to A Letter From Death Row is scheduled to be released in January of 1998. I'm not 100% sure that all these songs listed here will be on the album, or that this is all the song that will be on the album. Below are the lyrics to the songs preformed by the Bret Michaels Band on 8/14/97, and are most likely all from the album.

Party Rock Band

My album sucks, the critics say
I can't sing and I can't play
All I care about is sex and money
I look out-dated, I think that's funny

chorus
But I'm too wasted to really give a damn
So I sing for a party rock band

In 86, fans ripped out my hair
Now it's 96, there ain't none there
The girls used to talk dirty to me
But now it just really hurts when I pee
chorus
But I'm too stoned to really give a damn
'cause I sing for a party rock band

Bi-sexual girls, come get to know me
You can be my two and only
I'll be your brain-damaged party rock man
solo
My agent says I need publicity
Act depressed, they take me seriously
So wrecked my car into a telephone pole
Tried to date the singer from Hole
But Courtney didn't love me
Don't they understand?

Cuz I'm a shallow minded, sex cravin', don't
care about nothing unless I'm getting laid.

Say It


Funky is as funky does
Walked on over, there she was
Standing by the jukebox
With her EAR up against refused to HEAR
What I'm sayin', I'm only prayin'
I just want to make sweet love to you
Ooh ooh ooh

pre-chorus
Understand?
I wanna be your man
I got a plan
She said speak to the hand
chorus
She said I'm gonna rock your world, y'all
Oh oh oh
I-Iím gonna rock your world, y'all

Black or white, love or hate
You should get it off your chest
Before it's too late
Say IT, if you got something on your mind,
SAY IT
You must learn to release your
I got a car, it go fast
Keep fuzzy dice on the dash
Gotta bumper sticker, it says PEACE
Keep a gun under my seat
To protect you in case one of them bad guys come along
Ooh ooh ooh
Am I too rough, not rough enough
You like whips and chains, I'll buy that stuff
Oh oh oh

chorus
Love or hate, skin black or white
Gonna eat you up if you keep it inside
so SAY IT
Girl you got something on your mind, SAY IT

Baby am I not your type, SAY IT
Like wow, do you love me know, SAY IT
Like Tiger Sanchez, your Latin lover
Get up the nerve, gonna make a scene,
Walk it on over like a sex machine
Takin' it to the floor, doin' my funky dance,
Show her the tiger that's in my what WHAT
Everybody funny, now you actin' funny too
Was it something I said, something I've done,
Something that I do
Did did I rock your world, y'all
Did did I rock your world y'all
Black white gay straight get raped
Did it late religious gone love hate
Stayed out way too late
SAY IT, got something on your mind, SAY IT
What's wrong baby, I ain't your type, SAY IT
Why don't you love my now

Little Willy

Little Willy knows a secret
Little Willy likes to lie
He is getting so excited
Willy's a very emotional guy

chorus
I said little Willy likes to bang his drum
(Little Willy's in the band)
Little Willy he ain't so dumb
(Little Willy shrinks up when the girls go chilly
Takes a whole lot of lovin' just to warm up Willy)

Little Willy doesn't get nervous and he ain't shy
Unless lovely ladies make fun of his size

chorus
solo Little Willy (3x) - he's gonna cry
Little Willy (3x) - zip up his fly
chorus
rap

Steel Bar Blues

Don't matter what my name is
Don't matter what my skin is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right
I guess I'm born to lose, ummmm

chorus
'cause execution did draw near
I got them steel bar blues
Am I innocent or guilty, man
They say yes, I guess I am
I don't feel no pain no more
Ain't no sunshine, that's for sure
I guess I'm born to lose
chorus
'cause execution did draw near
I got them steel bar blues

Yes I do.......

Bridge
Don't matter what my name is
Don't matter what my skin is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right
Don't matter what time it is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right

Letter from Death Row

Sitting here in my cell writing a letter
Thanking all the people who made my living conditions better

And thanks to the justice system
I'm making a million
My lawyer got me a book deal
Now I'm making a killing just from making a killing
I got an agent for the publicity
An accountant to count my royalties

chorus The talk shows want me, sorry I can't go
I'm stuck here on death row

You call me Hannibal Lechter, if I was smarter
If I was Charlie Manson
You'd make me a martyr wouldn't ya
You'd call me a handsome man
If I was Bundy
But if I looked like John Wayne Gasey
You'd just say I'm funny, not ha ha funny
Tried to act my career just flopped
Killed my neighbor, got on Cops

chorus
Problem is, I only made one show now
I'm stuck here on death row

The poor victim's families never make a dime
Networks say I'm not prime time
All my cell mates on my cell block
Say I'm the hottest topic at the coffee shops
Waitress cries, "God how they should free me"
Send me her love letters, says someday
She'd really love to meet me
Tells her customers people should
Forgive me for the things I do
I wonder if I kill her
Would her family forgive me too?
Thanks for the attention and the publicity
The taxpayer's dollars that you spend on me
Thanks for the good meal, dry bed, and these warm clothes
I'm alive and well on death row

Times Like These

Baby, will you be my girl
Kristi, will you be my girl
I'll take you to a better place, there's no pain and no disgrace in a perfect world
Drive that ragtop Cadillac (2x)
Straight across the Nevada line
Radio playin' hair flying
No turning back

chorus
Hey babe, I live for times like these (2x)
Baby, I live for times like these
Give me a reason to believe
For a moment times stands still (2x)
I feel no shame, I feel no violence
For the moment and in the silence (2x)

repeat chorus
Hey babe, I live for times like these, give me a reason to believe

solo
Sun rises to the east (2x)
For a moment in your eyes, catch a glimpse of a different life
Smile at fate
repeat chorus There's no famous final scene, no movie starts
No limousines, everything we'll leave behind
There's no waiting on the other side

Just you and me for a better place
I swear I live for times like these
You're all I need

Devil Inside

He swears he'll love you by candlelight
And for a while things seem all right
And for a moment he hides the devil that lies inside
And then one night in a fit of rage
The demon raises his hand in fate
And brings it down on you
There is nothing you can do
And then one night in a twist of fate
The angels bring your face to me
I cannot erase the memories
Of you lying there looking up at me

chorus
Please take the demons from my head
Won't you please erase the memories
And ghosts who haunt my bed
I just want you to understand
That I'm gonna be the only man
To ever touch your soul
And I ain't never letting go

There's a room that lies down the hall
Where you sit and write you poems of love and mystery of faith and fantasy
And you keep a secret lover there
And a book beside an easy chair
That you read before you go to bed
To hide the memories in your head
And now I try to understand the pain
You struggle for the words to say
It don't come out right
As you lay your body down

chorus
There's a place where you go
I've been, I'll never know
The pain you keep inside
The secrets that you hide
But I try to understand your pain
And be a shelter from the falling rain
Just maybe I feel what you're going through
Maybe I have been there too

Please take the demons from my head (10x)

Stay With Me

Vietnam was '66
Two best friends take a bad hit
And never saw it come
But it's all there
One was a rich boy, a doctors son
The other the father of a girl age one
Never had the change to hold his daughters hand
New York flat in '76
Two girlfriends shoot a bad fix
Never woke up saw heaven before it saw them
One was a daughter of a prominent man
The other the mother of a girl age ten
Who walked in and saw mama sleeping in Gods hands
And she cried

chorus
Stay with me
Mama won't you stay here with me
You promised you would never leave
Stay with me
Oh won't you stay here with me
Mama, hold my had and stay with me

Years go by, the girl's 23
Had a rough go, but she's on her feet
The man so rough
A few good years, a wedding ring
Wasn't enough to fulfill his dreams
He came home from work one day and said I'm leaving you
She cried...

chorus
Stay with me, honey
Won't you stay right here with me
You promised you would never leave
Stay with me, whoa whoa
Stay right here with me
Won't you hold my hand stay with me

Bridge
Emergency room, number four
A woman cried out as the child is born
She stares into eyes and says
My life's had it's ups and downs
But for yours I will be around
I will always be around
And she cried

chorus
Stay with me, whoa whoa
Won't you stay right here with me
I promise I will never leave
Stay with me, oh
Won't you stay right here with me
Child, you hold my had stay with me
Child, you hold my hand stay with me.

WW Sex

You're such a sexy thing and it's all right
But your daddy loves you and that's all right
He buys you diamond rings, but I'm giving you better things
That's all right, all right

chorus
No doubt about it you're the queen of the fine
You can crawl up in me any ol' time
Slide up slow like a rattlesnake
Suck me in with every move you make
Heartbreaker
You talk so soft and sexy call me honey
Your eyes make love to me, take my money
Your body can hypnotize you let me fantasize
I can't hide it, I can't hide it

chorus
No doubt about it you're the queen of the fine
You can crawl up in me any ol' time
Slide up slow like a rattlesnake
Suck me in with every move you make
Heartbreaker

The more I get the more I need
You have no idea what you're doing to me
I breakdown, I breakdown
The only way to forget about my ex
Is the wonderful sound of your sex yeah
You're so sexy, I want to touch you
But it's closing time, what could I do
You drive up in your Corvette
I try to get you into my Corvette
No dice
But I still love you

chorus
No doubt about it you're the queen of the fine

I'd like to see you here tomorrow night
Slide up slow like a rattlesnake
Suck me in with every move you make
Heartbreaker

The more I want, the more I need
No idea what you're doing to me
Heartbreaker
Yeah I, I like it
(Bridge, fade with whistle)

b>Angst Mary

Child is born from the act of love
And woman dies from the act of love
Something ain't right around here
Laugh at a man when he's alive
And then cry for him when he dies
Something ain't right around here
Still I dream of sex, still I dream of sex
Maybe, baby, I don't belong around here
Maybe, baby, I don't fit in around here
Maybe I don't belong and things just got a way too clear
Generation lost in space
Blame it on the old rat race
Something ain't right around here
Staring up at my ceiling fan
It go round and round, yes I am
Wondering what I'm going to do tonight
Still I dream of you, still I dream of you
Maybe, baby, I don't belong around here
Maybe I don't fit in, child
I don't fit in around here
Maybe I don't belong in things
It got a way too hunh, hunh, hunh...
Will you be my girl tonight
And can I walk along the beach and hold your hand softly
Mary opened up her arms and said come to me, come to me, come to me
I'm still right here and it' all so clear
Something seems right around here
I'm still here and it all seems all so clear
Something seems right around round here
Now I dream of you, now I dream of you
Baby, baby, I do belong right here
Maybe, child, I do fit in around here
Maybe I always fit in
My head was just a bit unclear
hunh, hunh, hunh

Human Zoo

Well you just step right up, you sexy thing
Tell me what's been goin' on in that funky little brain
Come dance with the devil
You want it when it's gonna cost you
'cause nothing comes for free
When you're living in a human zoo

chorus
Dance sista dance through the human zoo
You're such a mess now, girl
Look what they done to you...
In the human zoo

Look what they've done to you
All love lost, in a fit of rage
Sell your soul for revenge and seal your fate
Welcome to the nightmare
I've been expecting you
Say anything you like, baby
Just don't let me hear your point of view

chorus
Dance sista dance through the human zoo
Dance sista dance through the human zoo
You're such a mess now, girl

Look what they done to you...
In the human zoo
Look what they done to you
Look what, look what they done, baby
They made a mess of you
bridge
Hanoi rocks and Saigon rolls
Just drop the bomb then watch it explode

Background
Sign of the times read "too young to vote"
But old enough to die for you
We got the medication you need
Just don't let us hear your point of view

chorus
Dance sista dance through the human zoo
Dance sista dance through the human zoo

I'd Die For You

Oh yeah, rock you baby
My pretty girl, you move so sexy in your skin
Spread your wings for me, let my love come in
My sexy girl, all the world's your stage
You love to feel my passion
You love to feed my rage
Give me your faith, you take my hand
You be my girl, I'll be your man
My love's forever, my heart is true
You live for me, I'd die for you
Believe me, baby
Pretty girl, lives inside my head
Like an angel hanging above my head
I think about you when I'm pacing in my cage
How I loved your eyes, how you loved my evil ways
I am love, you are hate
You my laughter, I am rage
My love's forever, my heart is true
You live for me, I'd die for you
Oh yeah, rock it, baby
bridge
Police coming
Judgment coming
Hangman coming
My time is coming
Pretty girl, I'd protect you from the pain
I will be your sinner, I will be your saint
My sexy girl is so hard to please
She's all I ever wanted, all I ever need
You be my girl, I'll be your man
Believe in me, give me your hand
I pull my gun, my aim is true
You'd die for me, 'cause I'd die for you
Oh yeah, rock it baby
You are love, I am hate
You're a sinner and I'm a saint
We are laughter, we are rage
Crime of passion, gonna seal my fate
You're the fire, I'm gasoline
I'm coming on like a war machine
My love is strong, my soul is true
You'd die for me, I'd die for you

69

Dick meets Jane and a fire starts
Jane leaves Dick and it breaks his heart
Dick asked Jane, "Why'd you leave me?"
"'Cause you're not dangerous, rough and sleazy"
Now Dick's dangerous
Now Dick's rough
Now Dick's sleazy
Nice guy Dick don't live here anymore
Dick bought a swanky love pad down by the shore

chorus
He's going prime time
Online, 69

All the girls come around to get Dick
They all adore him now 'cause he acts like a prick
Each one tries to tie Dick down
Dick never falls in love, on the girls start coming 'round
Dick don't fall for their sweetness
He knows their weakness
Dick knows a their secret
Secret is Dick leased himself a nice car
Girls like car
Girls like Dick
Dick scores

chorus
Suddenly Jane wants back in Dick's life
'cause Jane hears Dick's a popular guy
Jane looks good, Dick takes her home
Dick kicks hers out after he gets his bone
Now Jane wants him
Now Jane needs him
Now Jane loves him
Jane loves Dick now that she got the old heave ho
Jane got what she wanted
Dick ain't a nice guy no more

chorus
