Raw Power

Album: Raw Power (1973)
  • Dance to the beat of the livin dead
    Lose sleep baby and stay away from bed
    Raw power is sure to come a runnin' to you
    If you're alone and you got the feel
    So am I baby let's move on out of here
    Raw power will surely come a runnin' to you
    Raw power got a magic touch
    Raw power is much too much
    Happiness is a guaranteed
    It was made for you and me

    Raw power honey just won't quit
    Raw power I can feel it
    Raw power baby can't be beat
    Poppin' eyes and flashin' feet
    Don't you try
    Don't you try to tell me what to do
    Everybody always tryin' to tell me what to do

    Look in the eyes of a savage girl
    Fall deep in love in the underworld
    Raw power is sure to come a runnin' to you
    If you're alone and you got the shakes
    So am I baby and I got what it takes
    Raw power is sure to come a runnin' to you

    Raw power got a healin' hand
    Raw power can destroy a man
    Raw power it's a more than soul
    Got a son called rock and roll
    Raw power honey just won't quit
    Raw power I can feel it
    Raw power honey can't be beat
    Get down, baby and a kiss my feet

    Everybody always tryin to tell me what to do
    Don't you try
    Don't you try to tell me what to do
    Everybody always tryin to tell me what to do
    Don't you try
    Don 't you try to tell me what to do

    Raw power it's got no place to go
    Raw power honey it don't want to know
    Raw power is a guaranteed OD
    Raw power is a laughin' at you and me

    And this is what I wanna know
    Can you feel it
    Can you feel it
    Can you feel it
    Can you feel it
    Raw power
    Raw power
    Raw power
    Raw power
