Dance to the beat of the living dead
You'll see baby, stay away from there
Raw power is sure to come a-runnin' to you

If you're alone and you got the feel
So am I baby let's roll on outta here
Raw power is sure to come a-runnin' to you

Raw power's got a magic touch
Raw power is much too much
Happiness is a guaranteed
It was made for you and me

Raw power, honey, just won't quit
Raw power, I can feel it
Raw power, hear it, can't be spared
Poppin' eyes and a fashion feed
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
I was tryin', I was tryin' a tell ya what to do

And you know that ain't right

I look in the eyes of the seventh girl
Fall deep in love in the underworld
Raw power is sure to come a-runnin' to you

If you're alone and you got the shakes
So am I baby and I got what it takes
Raw power is sure to come a-runnin' to you

Raw power's got a healing hand
Raw power can destroy a man
Raw power is so more than soul
Got a son called rock and roll

Raw power, honey, just won't quit
Raw power, I can feel it
Raw power honey, give me a spin
Get up baby and kiss my feet

Ev'rybody always tryin' a tell me what to do
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
Ev'rybody always tryin' a tell me what to do
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
Raw power it's got no place to go
Raw power honey, you don't want to know
Raw power is a guaranteed O.D.
Raw power is a laughin' at you and me

I want to know

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Raw power
Raw power
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

    I always thought this was their worst song, but the more I listen to it the more I like it.

    Amazing cover. Iggy loved this version by the way. Duff sounds great. When it came to punk he was GNR's go-to-guy. Being from Seattle and having played for punk legends the Fastbacks he was a secret weapon in GNR's arsenal.
