I know that it's evil I know that it's got to be I know I ain't doing much Doing nothing means a lot to me Living on a shoe string A fifty cent millionaire Open to charity Rock 'n' roller welfare
Sitting in my Cadillac Listening to my radio Suzy baby get on in Tell me where she want to go I'm living in a nightmare She's looking like a wet dream I got myself a Cadillac But I can't afford the gasoline
[Chorus]: I've got holes in my shoes And I'm way overdue Down payment blues
Get myself a steady job Some responsibility Can't even feed my cat On social security Hiding from the rent man Oh it makes me want to cry Sheriff knocking on my door Ain't it funny how the time flies
Sitting on my sailing boat Sipping off my champagne Suzy baby all at sea Say she want to come again Feeling like a paper cup Floating down a storm drain Got myself a sailing boat But I can't afford a drop of rain

Paul from UkMy favourite song ever - the guitars, bass and drums keep building and releasing intensity with Bon's wonderful melody and lyrics over the top. I love it.
Martin from EnglandShows Bon’s brilliance as a lyricist/poet and a great tune too.
Zero from Nowhere, NjGreat song from an underrated album
Randy from New Hartford, NyThis was one of those songs that I knew I was gonna love right from the first few notes- even though at the time I had no clue who did it. It remains as one of my top 5 AC/DC songs.
Austin from Bristow, VaVery sad song. It shows that the boys from AC/DC went through some tough times before sucess was theirs.
Selina from Perth, AustraliaThis is a great song from Bon n the boys- someone comment!!!... Explains alot about the early life of the band who were ready to get their kick-start but livin off the strerets n sharin beds with rats. Rock On AC/DC ! :)
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
