Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed
(3:43)
G. Johnson / G. Perry / A. Bond - Gold Forever Music - BMI



Fe Fi Fo Fum, I can feel the presence of someone,
Somebody been sleepin' in my bed,
Somebody been sittin' in my chair.

Cigarettes in the ash tray, and I don't even smoke.
Someone's been drinking my best booze, I can tell 'cause the seal is broke.
I left my bedroom slippers last night at the foot of my bed,
And now they're in my living room, and my bed was left unmade.

Somebody been sleepin' in my bed,
Somebody been sittin' in my chair.

They ate up all my food, and I don't stand for such.
Don't tell me it was a woman, 'cause a woman don't eat that much.
My brand new silk pajamas, they were balled up in a chair,
My mind ain't playin' tricks on me - help me! Is he's still here?

Somebody been sleepin' in my bed,
Somebody been sittin' in my chair.
Somebody!

Fe Fi Fo Fum - I can feel the presence of some, someone.

{Rod/Alto Reed - Solo}

Somebody been sleepin' in my bed,
Somebody been sittin' in my chair, yeah.
Somebody been sleepin' in my bed, oh,
Somebody been sittin' in my chair.
Somebody, somebody.

{Rod - Solo}




Third Time Lucky
(4:10)
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



Its all behind me, there's good luck up ahead,
Can't break what's left of my heart.
Once bitten, twice shy, this time it feels so good,
I'd hate to see it fall apart.

First love I had was seventeen, and I was younger,
Love to us was some kind of game.
In all my letters, said I never would forget her - now,
I can't recall her name.

The first time I was a fool, I never knew that love could be so cruel.
It happened to me again - Third time lucky.

{Instrumental}

I was in love one time, I thought it was the real thing,
But I kept the feelings to myself.
Afraid to show it, expected her to know,
It was the reason she found someone else.

Its all behind me, there's good luck up ahead,
Can't break what's left of my heart.
Once bitten, twice shy, this time it feels so good,
I'd hate to see it fall apart.

The first time I was a fool, I never knew that love could be so cruel.
It happened to me again - Third time lucky. Oh yeah, yeah.

{Solo}

The first time I was a fool, I never knew that love could be so cruel.
It happened to me again - Third time lucky. Oh yea-ee-yeah

The first time I was a fool, I never knew that love could be so cruel.
It happened to me again - Third time lucky. Oh yea-ee-yeah.

The first time I was a fool, I never knew that love could be so cruel.
It happened to me again - Third time lucky. Oh yea-ee-yeah...
The first time I was a fool...




Comin' Down With Love
(5:22)
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



Look at me, I'm back in love again,
No reason to lie, there'll be no need to pretend.
I've got a feeling that's burning me up,
All I need is one sip of your sweet lovin' cup.

Oh babe, I can't go on without you,
Love is something that I never knew.
Oh babe, I'm really losing my mind,
Come to me baby just one more time, yeah.

Every girl that I see go by,
Sure makes me hungry for my sweet honey pie.
I get dizzy and my knees get weak,
My hand starts trembling and I can't hardly speak.

Oh babe, I can't go on without you,
Love is something that I never knew.
Oh babe, I'm really losing my mind,
Come to me baby, just one more time, yeah.

I'm comin' down with love all over again,
I'm comin' down with love all over again, yeah.

Somebody help me, well I'm fallin' apart,
I need something to kill this feeling deep in my heart.
I start to shake and shiver, send in the nurse,
If I don't get some loving soon, I'm gonna get worse.

Oh babe, I can't go on without you,
Love is something that I never knew.
Oh babe, I'm really losing my mind,
Come to me baby, just one more time, yeah.

I'm comin' down with love all over again,
I'm comin' down with love all over again, yeah.
Whoo!

{Dave - Solo}

I'm comin' down with love all over again,
I'm comin' down with love all over again.

Night and day love, you're on my mind,
Every beat of my heart is right on time.
Something I can't hide, this feeling deep inside,
It keeps me satisfied, come with me, come with me.

I'm comin' down with love all over again,
I'm comin' down with love all over again.

I'm comin' down with love all over again, oh,
I'm comin' down with love all over again, again and again, oh, yeah.




Paradise Alley
(5:36)
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



Remember me, you were a friend of mine,
Restless and young, I'm the one you made love to for the first time.
Now look at you, what you been up to, since I saw you last?
Your hair's a mess, you're half-dressed, you're loaded and you're fadin' fast.

All the dreams, you had of wealth and fame,
You took to the city, what a shame, they're all shattered, now your heart's in pain.
Makin love for a livin', you've given up, all you've got's a heart of stone.
Makin' the most of a sad situation, Paradise Alley's your home.

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone,
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home, yeah.

Lookin' back, I still recall the time,
I wonder how in the world was it so easy to be so unkind.
Will you be sorry when you realize the story has to end this way?
Lost in the night, never quite getting used to all the games they play.

You wait in vain, and your heart's in pain,
And dreams are all you have to hold on to.
You're losin' touch and it hurts so much,
To think of all the love I had for you.

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone,
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home, yeah.

{Rod - Slide Solo}

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone.
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home.

Paradise Alley, what a place to call your home,
Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone, yeah.

{Rod - Solo to fade}




Boogie Motel
(7:21)
Rod Price / Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



You've got a secret lover, you can't take home,
You've got an ache deep down in your love bone,
Come on check in, in a hurry,
Under cover there's no need to worry.
Stay all night if you got the time, or just one hour is fine, ooh so fine.
Look in the mirror above your bed, yeah,
Start to wonder if you're bein' mislead.

Boogie Motel, Boogie Motel,
May be sleazy, but it's cheap and it's easy.
Between heaven and hell, check in to the Boogie Motel

Desk clerk's heart beats like a hammer,
Got a smile like a beat-up piano.
Gives a nudge and a wink as you sign in,
"I got a room you can have a good time in!"
What you want you can get for a price,
Room service, send me something nice, so nice.
Low down and nasty, ain't no Savoy!
Bound to find something you can enjoy.

Boogie Motel, Boogie Motel,
May be sleazy, but it's cheap and it's easy.
Between heaven and hell - check in to the Boogie Motel.

{Alto Reed - tenor sax solo}
Whoo!
{Guitar solo}

"Red lights! Blue movies! Sweet music! Close to business and home!"
Get on the highway, if you want to use it - can't make it alone.

Boogie Motel, Boogie Motel,
May be sleazy, but it's cheap and it's easy.

Between heaven and hell, yeah,
You never can tell no,
May be glad you checked in to the Boogie Motel.

{Rod - Slide Solo - guitar solo - bluesy sax/guitar to fade}




Love In Motion
(4:30)
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



Makin' love, and the world stops turning.
Your body's so warm and your lips are like honey.
Into the night, well I'm driftin' and driftin',
I'm caught in a dream, I'm lost but not lonely.

The world stops turnin' and time stands still,
Feels like the night will last forever,
When love is in motion (love in motion)
When love is in motion (love in motion)

Deep inside, I can feel it comin',
A river of love, rollin' over my body.
Driftin' with the tide,
I don't care where it takes me,
Carry me on, roll me over and over.

The world stops turnin' and time stands still,
Feels like the night will last forever,
When love is in motion (love in motion)
When love is in motion (love in motion)

No time to worry, no time to lose,
I can't see clearly but I can't be confused.
No love can be as strong as this,
I can't take it but I just can't resist.
Oh no, oh no.

{Dave - Solo}

Slow and easy, night is young,
Need someone to love you? Let me be the one.
Lay back baby, let the good feeling flow,
Love is coming and I'm losing control.

The world stops turnin' and time stands still,
Feels like the night will last forever,
When love is in motion (love in motion)
When love is in motion (love in motion)
I can feel it now (love in motion)
I can feel it comin', yeah (love in motion)
When love is in motion (love in motion)
When love is in motion (love in motion)
Oh oh yeah (love in motion)
Whoa ah (love in motion)
(love in motion)
(love in motion)......




Nervous Release
(5:52)
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP



I've been wearin' my fingers down to the bone,
Just pushin' your number on the telephone.
I chewed up the rug, knocked a hole in the wall,
But your line was busy everytime I call.
Remember the shots that we took last night?
Polaroid Woman sure treat me right.
But right now I'm down on my knees,
I need your nervous release,
Your nervous release.

I had a long hard day and now my nerves are on edge,
Like I just stepped back from a window ledge.
I smoked too many straights, too much caffeine,
Feel like I'm burnin' bad gasoline.
IBM Woman, now I've got a hunch,
You're too wound up from operating that punch
I'll hang up the phone, grab the keys,
I need your nervous release, ah yeah.

{Instrumental}

I woke up at noon, I should've stayed in bed.
I checked my level, it was in the red.
I swear I heard voices, there was no one around,
An ice-cold shower couldn't cool me down.
I used to brag about my nerves of steel,
Heavy Metal Woman just can't be real!
Cool me down by degrees,
I need your nervous release.
N-n..n- n- ...

I'm as nervous as a man could be,
Full of guilt and insecurity.
Too much work, man it's killing me!,
Like a mad dog howling through the trees,
I need your nervous release, your nervous release.

N-n..n-n..n-n..n-nervous release.
N-n..n-n..n-n..n-nervous release.
Oh baby, oh baby...
Alright!

Stone Blue went gold, as did the band's 1979 LP "Boogie Motel". Still, Foghat was getting restless with the formula perfected on "Fool For The City." Peverett, for one, was drawn to the sounds of New Wave rock. " Punk and New Wave reminded me of early rockabilly," he says. "It appealed to me, even though I felt Foghat was part of what New Wave was trying to replace. So I was kind of knocking myself in a way."
