Lyrics

Hold Out

Written By: Keith Fleming

Before you ride
You gotta warm it up
Check your pressure
Get it up
If you don’t feel it
You ain’t driving fast enough

Grab that stick and let it flow
Give her some juice and watch her go
You gotta ease back if you’re gonna blow

Just hold out baby
Hold out baby
Hold out baby
Hold out for me

You wanna ride
Put in on the street
Cherry red
Looking sweet
She got some candy
Gimme something good to eat

Grab that stick and let it flow
Give her some juice and watch her go
You gotta ease back if you’re gonna blow

Just hold out baby
Hold out baby
Hold out baby
Hold out for me

Ride baby ride

Millionaire

Written By: Keith Fleming

Cash is King
What a wonderful thing
Have a cold one

No one cares
Gonna take my share
Havin' my fun

There's no doubt
I can do without
Singing ‘My Way’

Cash it in
For a black Mach 10 yeah

I'm a Millionaire
I'm a billionaire
I'm a trillionaire
But that's not enough

I get paid
An incredible wage
Gonna stay in

All this talk
Of a hot new stock
Need a new friend

Take my chance
On a cash advance
It's a strange way

Help me please
I need a new TV yeah

I'm a Millionaire
I'm a billionaire
I'm a trillionaire
But that's not enough

LA's Burning

Written By: Keith Fleming

Greed
Is what you’re good for
Fear
Is what you need
Fame
Can make a fortune
Air
Just let me breathe
(Shut up and keep on driving)

LA’s burning
LA’s burning

Time
Won’t make you happy
Tears
Won’t make you grieve
Haste
I think you’re wasted
Here
Your destiny
(This town is paralyzing)

LA’s burning
LA’s burning

I much too lucky for you
I want to crucify you
My time’s too brief to mention
I need an intervention

LA’s burning
LA’s burning
I think you’re working for me
LA’s burning
I think you’re working for me
LA’s burning

Everything Is Fine

Written By: Adam Rohosy

Hey look who's calling
Don't you cross that line
Hey night is falling
Don't you know it's time
Cause you feel alright
Got a might appetite
Gonna start up a fight now
And you do alright
And you sure keep it tight
Cause you're right outta site now
Hey what you're saying
Don't believe it's true
Hey games you're playing
It reflects on you
Cause you feel alright
Got a might appetite
Gonna start up a fight now
And you do alright
And you sure keep it tight
Cause you're right outta site now
Everything is Fine
