Ow
Oh yeah
If you want to put a message
Through my heart
Shoot the arrow in the morning hey
I'm gonna rise and shine
And wake you up
And move you without warning
Call my name

I understand the reason for desire
The band I give to you will be the ring of fire
Something in your kiss that lasts forever
Burning in the heat for you
Love you 'round the clock
You get the best of what I got
Oh yeah

Gonna work all day to buy you pretty things
Cause you're such a pretty girl
You can work me overtime knock me out
Got my senses in a whirl
Like a locomotive burning down the track
You're my destination
One on one and kiss for kiss
You're my fascination
Something in your touch that holds the promise hey
You've got me feeling all shook up
Love you 'round the clock
You get the best of what I got
Oh yeah

I put my key inside your door
And it feels so good
When I come home at night
We're rocking the neighborhood
Rocking the neighborhood
Something that you read about in headlines
I feel the heat for you

I wanna rock you 'round the clock
You get the best
You get the best of what I got
Oh yeah
You get the best of what I got
Ow

I want to love you 'round the clock
(Best of what I got)
Oh

You get the best of what I got
(Best of what I got)
Ow

That's right
I want to love you 'round the clock
(Best of what I got)
Ow

Ooh yeah
(Best of what I got)
That's right
You get the best of what I got
(Best of what I got)

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
(Best of what I got)

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

Doors, The
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?

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
