I'd sign - a contract with the devil
I've tried - for so very long
I'd die - to become immortal
that's why I sing this song
Am I a wannabe? - have I no dignity.
Who'd give up all my life.. to be
In the book of heavy metal.. metal!
In the book of heavy metal

In life - I have no religion
besides the heavy metal gods
wear nothing but black skin tight leather
My skin's clad with Metal studs
Am I a wannabe? - have I no dignity.
I give up all my life to be..
In the book of heavy metal.. metal!
In the book of heavy metal

Some twenty years ago, the goods put down there feet,
So firmly in to the ground that no man of sword nor pen,
could ever chains the rules upon which
The very fundament of metal was made.

Read all about it, in the book of heavy metal
Read all about it, in the manual
Read all about it, in the book of heavy metal
Read all about it
Don't need no flashy house, no kids/car or ugly wife
the only thing I want, is what my parents don't
need no widescreen TV, No in all honesty
the only thing I want to be (to be or not to be)

In the book of heavy metal - In life - metal!
In the book of heavy metal - to death - metal!

I've signed - a contract with the devil
I'd like to become a star
I'd die - to become immortal
That's why I play the guitar

    General CommentI was listening to this when I had a vision, about my future, Eddie VanHalen himself, told it to me! He told me that I was gonna play Bass, and then for one instant the clouds broke and a ray of sunlight was shinning on me, (AND IT WAS MIDNIGHT! I like to jog at midnight) The part about the sunlight actually happened, some satalite in Kazakastan had reflected a beam of sunlight off some other satalites, and had bounced it all the way accross the world, I saw it on the news the next day. And I thnink the part about VanHalen, might have been due to the tequilla. I TALK TO MUCH DON'T I?
