Lyrics

Spank Me

Written By: Bad January

Everytime I look at you,
I start to fantasize
The beauty that's in front of me,
I can't believe my eyes.
The dirty thoughts begin to take
control of what's inside
Let me get down to the point,
Open up your thighs!

And Spank Me,
I've been a naughty boy.
Yeah, Spank Me
Come on, be my new play toy
Yeah, Spank Me
It would bring me lots of joy
Spank me, Spank me, Spank me, Spank Me!

Don't pretend that you
don't understand
I'm the one who's gonna
lead your bad
You want it just as much as me
Inhibition's a dirty word you see
If your into whips and chains
let the pleasure be your pain
Cause the night young
and the thrill is there
Let me smack that derriere!

Come on, spank me
I've been a naughty boy.
Yeah, Spank Me
Come on, be my new play toy
Yeah, Spank Me
It would bring me lots of joy
Spank me, Spank me, Spank me, Spank Me!

Whack me, Smack me, make it sting,
While we're doing un-natural things
Hump me, pump me, make me beg!
Tap that ass like a pony keg!
Come on and Spank me, Spank me, Spank me, Spank Me!

And Spank Me,
I've been a naughty boy.
Yeah, Spank Me
Come on, be my new play toy
Yeah, Spank Me
It would bring me lots of joy
Spank me, Spank me, Spank me, Spank Me!

Pain

Written By: Bad January

You say my aggression goes unchecked.
You say my opinion shows no respect.
You take your side, I'll take mine.
I may be wrong, but you ain't right.

So you bring the whiskey
And your best game.
All your friends.
I'm bringing the pain.

Checking our your girl
Man, what could I do
If your titties were that big,
Boy, I'd be looking at you.
Take it easy, man,
I'm just having fun.
Now you got trouble,
You want to give me some.

You bring the whiskey
And your best game.
Bring all your friends.
Cause, I'll be bringing the pain.

It's the land of the free
I've been told anyway
But since 9/11
Everything has changed
Some sucker punching bitch,
You ain't no kind of man
Get in the ring, boys,
Draw your line in the sand.

You bring the whiskey
And your best game
All your Taliban friends
And we'll be bringing the pain.

You say my aggression goes unchecked.
You say my opinion shows no respect.
You take your side, I'll take mine.
I may be wrong, but you ain't right.

So you bring the whiskey
And your best game.
Bring all your friends
I'm bringing the pain.

Independence

Written By: Bad January

Revolution
is the only way
To take back our country.
The future is at stake.
We got to be strong now,
If you follow, I will lead.
Our forefathers cry out
And Lady Liberty screams,
Yeah, she screams.

Try to take my freedom away,
Try to fence me in,
But you can't keep me
Try to take my freedom away,
Try to take me out,
But I ain't going down!

Our soldiers die for oil
And not for liberty.
Straying from the home fire
Ain't safe for you or me.
We're all blamed for their greed
We're blamed by the whole world.
Lied to by our leaders
And hated by the world!

Try to take my freedom away,
Try to fence me in,
But you can't keep me
Try to take my freedom away,
Try to take me out,
But I ain't going down!

So give me liberty or give me death!

Try to take my freedom away,
Try to fence me in,
But you can't keep me
Try to take my freedom away,
Try to take me out,
But I ain't going down!

So stand and be counted!
Freedom don't come free.
Calling young America
It's up to you and me
Everyone wants to go to heaven
No one wants to die.
We can't accept their fucked up lies
The price is just too high!!

Try to take my freedom away,
Try to fence me in,
You can't keep me
Try to take my freedom away,
Try to take me out,
But I ain't going down!

SOL

Written By: Bad January

Well you tried to take my freedom
When you pushed away my friends
Even though you knew I'd need them
The way it's always been.

I got something, baby
you can't take away from
God gave me something, baby
you can't take away from
I got something, baby
you can't take away from
God gave something, baby
You'll never take away from me!

Well I guess you never noticed
How it'd be your last mistake
When you thought that you had everything
And there's nothing left to take

I got something, baby
That you can't take away from
God gave me something, baby
you can't take away from
I got something, baby
you can't take away from
God gave me something, baby
You never take away from me!

Lead Solo

I got something, baby
That you can't take away from
I got something, baby
That you can't take away from
God gave me something, baby
You can't take away from
I got something baby
You never take away from me!

Take me away!!
