"Ladies and Gentlemen, we interrupt our program of Dance Music, To bring you a special bulletin from the intercontinental radio news. Our very own pop princess, now Queen of Pop, Has a special announcement she will like to make"
You're on, I think I'm ready for my close up, Yeah
You don't like me I don't like you, it don't matter (who?) Only difference You still listen, I don't have to (who?) In one ear and Out the other, I don't need you (who?) Your words don't stick I ain't perfect, but you ain't either (who?)
If your feeling froggy leap (oh) I ain't even losin' sleep (oh) There's more to me than what you see (oh) You wouldn't like me when I'm angry
Mr. Photographer I think I'm ready for my close-up (tonight) Make sure you catch me from my good side (pick one) These other (ha) just wanna be me Is that money in your pocket? Or you happy to see me?
[Chorus] Kill the Lights! (Take 'em out, turn 'em off, break 'em down) Kill the Lights! (Don't be scared, make a move, see me now?) Kill the Lights! (I feel you, watching me, watching you) Kill the Lights! You can't handle the truth What happened to you? I kill The lights pure The lights satis The lights faction I kill The lights lights The lights camera The lights action I kill The lights pure The lights satis The lights faction I kill The lights lights The lights camera The lights action
All the flashin', tryin' to cash-in Hurts my eyes All the poses, out of focus I despise
Eff me over, your exposure Not the best You want me bad, I want you out Release this stress.
Mr. Photographer I think I'm ready for my close-up (tonight) Make sure you catch me from my good side (pick one) These other just wanna be me Is that money in your pocket? Or you happy to see me?
You're the star now, welcome to the big league They all want a pic, they all wanna see, see, see What you're made of, what you're gonna do Is life gonna get the best of you?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

"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.
The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
