Any way you want it, you can call me any day, hey, hey, hey
Any way you want it, you will always hear me say, hey, hey, hey
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright (it's alright)
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright
So any way you want it, that's the way it will be

You don't want money, you don't want a diamond ring, hey, hey, hey
You say you want my lovin' more than any other thing, hey, hey, hey
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright (it's alright)
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright
So any way you want it, that's the way it will be

Any way, any way you want it, that's alright by me
Any way, any way you want it, that's the way it will be

Any way you want it, you can call me any day, hey, hey, hey
Any way you want it, you will always hear me say, hey, hey, hey
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright (it's alright)
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright
So any way you want it, that's the way it will be

Any way, any way you want it, that's alright by me
Any way, any way you want it, that's the way it will be

Any way you want it, you can call me any day, hey, hey, hey
Any day you want it, you will always hear me say, hey, hey, hey

It's alright (it's alright), it's alright (it's alright)
It's alright (it's alright), it's alright
So any way you want it, that's the way it will be
That's the way it will be
That's the way it will be

    Ramones played it? But they are all dead, right! Its not even a true KISS song...just some hit from the 50s.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
