"Primal Scream" as written by Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx....
Broke dick dog
My head slung low
Tail knocked in the dirt

Time and time
Of being told
Trash is all I'm worth

When I was just a young boy
Had to take a little grief
Now that I'm much older
Don't put your shit on me

Grab it and shake
Reach down scrape it
You just got to

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say "Hey"
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say

Janou said
Meters are red
Blow a neurotic fuse

Show a little
A little pain
Unlock a lotta truth

When daddy was a young man
His home was livin' Hell
Mama tried to be so perfect
Now her mind's a padded cell, ya

Grab it and shake
Reach down scrape it
You just got to

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say "Hey"
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say

Hey man, get out of my face
I deal with my problems at my own pace
With your screwed-down, anti-human views
Deal with the pressures by playing the blues
If you want to live life on your own terms
You gotta be willing to crash and burn

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say "Hey"
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say

Scream shout Come on come on come on
Scream shout
