You are hardcore, you make me hard You name the drama and I'll play the part It seems I saw you in some teenage wet dream I like your get-up, if you know what I mean
I want it bad I want it now Oh, can't you see I'm ready now? I've seen all the pictures, I've studied them forever
I want to make a movie, so let's star in it together Don't make a move till I say "action" Oh, here comes the hardcore life Put your money where your mouth is tonight
Leave your make-up on and I'll leave on the light Come over here, babe, and talk in the mic Oh yeah, I hear you now It's gonna be one hell of a night
You can't be a spectator, oh no You got to take these dreams and make them whole Oh, this is hardcore There is no way back for you
Oh, this is hardcore This is me on top of you And I can't believe it took me this long That it took me this long
This is the eye of the storm It's what men in stained raincoats pay for But in here it is pure, yeah This is the end of the line
I've seen the storyline played out so many times before Oh, that goes in there Then that goes in there Then that goes in there
Then that goes in there And then it's over Oh, what a hell of a show But what I want to know
What exactly do you do for an encore? 'Cause this is hardcore

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
