Track Name: Gimme Gimme Rockaway
Gimme Gimme Rockaway (Steve Conte)


Tough is life, back on the beach again,
just a sunny day
Got no tan, rockin’ my leather man,
New York to LA
Surf is up, we’re pounding the pavement,
tonight we’re gonna play
Ooh – Gimme Gimme Rockaway

East coast home, where I was born again,
God bless rock and roll
Chewin’ some gum, bounce up and down
with that little bit o soul
Feel fine – dressed to the nines
and my hair all set to spray
Ooh – Gimme Gimme Rockaway

Stop before ya hit Long Island
Cruising past Sheepshead Bay
Pull over when ya hear the siren, then we pray
Ooh – Gimme Gimme Rockaway

Stop before ya hit Long Island
Yeah cruising by Jamaica Bay
Pull over when ya hear the siren, better pray
Ooh – we never getting locked away

Tough this life, back on the beach again,
just a sunny day
Nightclub tan, rockin’ my leather man,
New York to LA
Surf’s up – the concrete’s hard
and tonight we’re gonna play
Ooh – Gimme Gimme Rockaway
Track Name: Mercedes Benz
Mercedes Benz (Bob Neuwirth, Janis Joplin, Michael McClure)

Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches
I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime
no help from my friends
So Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?

Lord, won't you buy me a colour TV?
Dialling For Dollars is trying to find me.
I wait for delivery each day until three
So Lord, won't you buy me a colour TV?

Lord, won't you buy me a night on the town?
I'm counting on you Lord
please don't let me down.
Prove that you love me and buy the next round
Oh Lord won't you buy me a night on the town?

Everybody!

Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches
I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime
no help from my friends
So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
