"Action! Not Words" as written by Robert John Lange, Steve Clark, Joseph Elliott, Peter Willis, Richard John Cyril Allen and Richard Savage....
I'm sick and tired of the damn TV
I'm gonna make my own movie
I want to star in a late night show
And all I need is my video

(Shock me) make it electric
(Shock me) make it last

Curtain up let the camera roll
It's automatic it's in control
Got no script baby, ain't no lines
Just me and you and a real good time

Oh (shock me) make it electric
(Shock me) make I'll it last
(Shock me) gimme thunder 'n' lightning
(Shock me) whoa babe I need it fast

'Cause all I want is some action
Action, action, not words
Gimme action, action, action not words

C'mon and shock me

Let the cameras roll

I'll be the hero, you be the star
With your wine and your caviar
No audition, a starring roll
I'll be your Bogart 'n' you be Monroe, yeah

(Shock me) make it electric
(Shock me) whoa bump and grind
(Shock me) make a night to remember
(Shock me) do it one more time

So cut me in on the action

Lights, camera, sound, I need action
Action, action,
Gimme action, action, action not words
Let the camera roll (action, action)
Action, not words
I need a little action, action, action, action, action not words
Well, shake a little piece of your
Action, action, action, action not words
Come on, talk to me with your body

    General CommentMan I love this song. Cool lyrics too. One of their best songs off the Pyromania album. I'd say what the song means, but if you can't tell, then you're a dumbass. :)
