  • Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone
    I took the city 'bout one A.M,
    Loaded, loaded
    I'm all geared up to score again,
    Loaded, loaded

    I come alive in the neon light
    That's when I make my moves right

    Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone
    Got gleaming chrome, reflecting steel,
    Loaded, loaded
    Ready to take on every deal,
    Loaded, loaded

    My pulse is racing, I'm hot to take
    This motor's revved up, fit to break

    Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

    I'm aiming for ya,
    I'm gonna floor ya
    My body's coming
    All night long

    The air's electric, sparkin' power,
    loaded, loaded
    I'm getting hotter by the hour,
    loaded, loaded

    I set my sights and then home in
    The joint starts flying when I begin
    Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

    Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

    Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
    Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Mrsteel from United StatesAfter Halford came out of the closet as being gay it made the lyrics a little more interesting "living after midnight, taking a bone in the rear, then I'm gone, I'm gone..."
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjWell, that's not a very interesting story how they came up with the song. Great song though!
  • Cyberpope from Richmond, CanadaJP was THE group to smoke weed to in the 80s!

    Buddy of mine got a good deal on a 8-speaker concert amp!
