"White Heat" as written by . Madonna and Patrick Leonard....
A copper.
How do ya like that boys, a copper.
And we went for it, I went for it
Treated him like a kid brother
And I was gonna split fifty-fifty with a copper.
They were there waitin' to pin a medal on him
(Come on get up, get your hands up!)
Yeah, that's it, a nice gold medal for the copper
Only maybe he's gonna get it sooner than he thinks!

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

You think you can have my love for free
Well I've got news for you
That's not the way it's gonna be
So don't come hangin' round my door
If you're not ready to give
You're not gonna get much more
I don't want to live out your fantasy
Love's not that easy, this time you're gonna
Gonna have to play my way
Come on make my day

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Can you feel the rhythm of my mind
Boy, I've got so much to give
But I don't want to waste my time
I can't let my heart put on a show
'Til you surrender baby
You've got to let it go
I don't want to live out your fantasy
Love's not that easy, this time you're gonna
Gonna have to play my way
Come on make my day

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Drop your weapons, you'd better come clean
I've got you covered, I'll catch you
When you fall to me
I'm not gonna hurt you, 'cause I'm not that kind
We're not goin' nowhere 'til you have a change of mind

(You haven't got a chance, come out with your hands up)
Come out with your hands up, the man says
How do ya like that, 'ma?
Here's my answer, you dirty

I don't want to live out your fantasy
Love's not that easy, this time you're gonna
Gonna have to play my way
Come on make my day

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

(Get up, stand tall)
Come on baby make my day
('Cause my love is dangerous)
Gonna have to play my way (This is a bust)

(Get up, stand tall)
Put your back up against the wall
('Cause my love is dangerous)
This is a bust

Get up, get up, get up, get up (Stand tall)
('Cause my love is dangerous)
This is a bust

I'm so good for you, baby here I come (Get up, stand tall)
I'm gonna get to you before the day is done
('Cause my love is dangerous)
This is a bust

(Get up, stand tall)
Come on baby make my day
('Cause my love is dangerous)
Gonna have to play my way (This is a bust)

    MemoryIn White Heat, Madonna conjures a dangerous game of Truth or Dare-She cries "I'm so good for you/Baby here I come/I'm gonna get to you/Till the day is done!"-About Love, her kids or maybe even sadness about her mother-The mind reels about Madonna-She is Brilliant!
