"Stranglehold" as written by and Ted Nugent....
Here I come again now baby
Like a dog in heat
Tell it's me by the clamor now baby
I like to tap the streets

Now I've been smoking for so long
You know I'm here to stay
Got you in a stranglehold baby
You best get out of the way

The road I cruise is a bitch now baby
You know you can't turn me 'round
And if a house gets in my way baby
You know I'll burn it down

You remember the night that you left me
You put me in my place
Got you in a stranglehold now baby
You're gone, I crushed your face

Yeah, sometimes you want to get higher
A sometimes you gotta start low
Some people think they gonna die someday
I got news you never got to go old

Come on, come on up
Come on, come on up
Come on, come on up
Come on, come on up
Come on, come on baby
Come on, come on, come on, come on up
Come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Come on, come on, come on

The road I cruise is a bitch now baby
You know you can't turn me 'round
Yeah and if a house gets in my way
You know I'll burn it down
You remember the night that you left me
You put me in my place
I got you in a stranglehold now baby
Last night I crushed your face

    General CommentThis is one of those songs where no one really knows what some of the words are. I'm pretty sure it's not "cross your way" OR "crush your face"
    Oh yeah, and it's not "Gonna cruise is a bitch now baby"...(what part of that even makes sense?!?! ) It's "the road I cruise is a bitch now baby" GEEZ. Either way, it's still a kick ass song no matter what anyone says lol.

    General CommentYeah this song actually rocks man, sweet guitar.

    He tried to go a little Led Zeppelin with all the orgasmic moaning though.

    General CommentBest Ted Nugent song ever. I love to listen to this while playing Mario Bros. Puts me in the zone I guess. I 'm surprised there aren't more comments too.

    General CommentThis is a great song to play at the end of a play session when I have my sub straped to a f*%#ing bench! FYI, the play is consensual.
