"Lick It Up" as written by Vincent John Cusano and Paul Stanley....
Don't want to wait 'til you know me better
Let's just be glad for the time together
Life's such a treat and it's time you taste it
There ain't a reason on earth to waste it
It ain't a crime to be good to yourself

Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah it's only right now
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up,ooh uh

Don't need to wait for an invitation
You gotta live like you're on vacation
There's something sweet you can't buy with money lick it up, lick it up
It's all you need, so believe me honey
It ain't a crime to be good to yourself

Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah it's only right now
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up,ooh uh

Come on it's only right now (it's only right now)
Ooh yeah (ooh yeah) ooh yeah (ooh yeah), yeah yeah

Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah it's only right now
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up, yeah ooh uh

Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up

    General CommentThe song is about hedonistic behavior, although I wouldn't dare bother intellectualize anything by KISS by commenting further. Entertaining song though...

    General CommentOkay imagine this convo:
    Your friend: Do you spit or swallow?
    You: (your answer here)
    Your friend: Lick it up (title of song)
    C'mon... read the lyrics ... doesn't take a genius...
    This band definately had the tongue action going for them...

    General CommentYes it's about living life to the fullest.However,it's also about sex.Come on,"Lick It Up".If you need it explained to you then you have bigger problems than not getting it.

    Memoryahhh, I remember listening to this while playing Tony Hawk UnderGround on the ps2, back then I was innocent and knew nothing about what it meant, it was just a song...now that I'm more grown up, I can't listen to this song without getting certain "images" in my head...btw, for those of you who haven't noticed, most of KISS's songs are about sex, i.e. Rock and Roll All Night, Lovegun,
