"Lick And A Promise" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
Johnny come lately on a Saturday night
Singin' how-de-do
Backstreet boogie in the house of delight
Where they steal the show
The money come sour but the ladies are sweet
And it's a love affair
Whole place rockin', people stompin' their feet
When the gang's all there
He gets his lovin' every night for free
He's out there rockin' like you wouldn't believe
I sing na na na na na
Na na na na na
Johnny liked to gamble with his lady Louise
She was a blackjack deuces are wild
He got to thinkin' 'bout his nose in the breeze
Johnny looked and he smiled
He started thinkin' bout the fortune and fame
And the young girls down at his knees
He dug the money but forgot all the names
So he knew just how to appease
Lick and a promise
Lick and a promise
Lick and a promise
He gave the ladies a lick and a promise
Lick and a promise
He gave the ladies a lick and a promise

Loose change clover in his early early years
Had his poor mama pacin' the floors
He grabbed a guitar and a couple of beers
Now the crowd keeps screamin' for more

He gets his lovin' every night for free
He's out there rockin' like you wouldn't believe
I sing na na na na na
I sing na na na na na
