Night Starvation
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Satisfaction guaranteed, if I can get my way
Satisfaction yes indeed, there's nothing more to say

Only that boys will be boys and they rise to the occasion
Girls lovely girls, wanna stop your night starvation

I wanna feel em (they like it)
I wanna squeeze em (you like it)
I wanna hold em (we want it)
More oh yeah
I wanna touch em (they like it)
I wanna squeeze em (you like it)
I wanna hug em (we want it)
More oh yeah

Interaction guaranteed - a fire down below
They may be called the weaker sex, the female dynamo
Only that boys will be boys and they're out to kill the passion
Girls lovely girls, always want to be in fashion

I wanna feel them (they like it)
I wanna squeeze them (you like it)
I wanna hug em (we want it)
More oh yeah
I wanna touch em (they like it)
I wanna feel em (you like it)
I wanna hold em (we want to)
More and more

L-l-lazy lovers ain't no use, you end up needing more.
You had a hard day's no excuse, We've heard it all before.
Boys will be boys, whistling and shouting at them.
Girls luvverly girls, oh what would we do without them?

I wanna feel em (they like it)
I wanna squeeze em (you like it)
I wanna hold em (we want to)
More oh yeah
I wanna touch em (they like it) ohh uh uh
I wanna feel em (you like it) ohh uh uh
I wanna hug em (we want to)
More and more and more

I wanna touch em, hold em, squeeze em, feel em
Kiss em, tease em, love em, hug em
Oooooooooooo!
More and more and more and more.
I wanna hug em, tease em, squeeze em, hold em
Touch em, squeeze em, feel em, rough em
Oooooooooooo!
More and more and more and more
And more and more and more and more


When I'm Dancin' I Ain't Fightin'
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Let me tell you bout the ins and outs of love
Let me tell you about a bit of push and shove
Let me tell you when the hooded terror strikes (wo oh)
Like he just even picks on everything he likes

Doesn't matter if you're naturally one way
Doesn't matter if you're actually, well gay
There's nothing like it when sensations collide
Hidden mysteries that flies can never hide

Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no more
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no more

Let me tell you bout the up and down romances
Let me tell you how the bad girl makes advances
Let me tell you when the hooded terror strikes
He's a ladykiller, doing what he likes

Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no more

There's nothing like it when frustrations are relieved (oh ho)
And when fantasy ambitions are achieved

Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no more
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh when I'm dancing
Oh I ain't fighting with you no more

When I'm when I'm dancing, [etc.]
( I hate dancin'! )


Don't Waste Your Time ( Back Seat Star )
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Don't waste your time honey - don't waste your time
You're gettin' caught up on a merry go round and I know you like the feelin'
Goin' up goin' down

Don't waste your time honey - find a new line
'Come up and see me sometime' ain't your style
And I know there used to be a time when you'd run a mile

And you been ridin' in them rock and roll cars
You wanna be a back seat star
And 'cos you ain't got into trouble so far
So you think you got it, you think you got it

Made on page three honey, for all to see
Your finer points are gonna make someone's day
And I know a place to advertise the goods on display

And you been ridin' in them rock and roll cars
You wanna be a back seat star
And 'cos you ain't got into trouble so far
So you think you got it, you think you got it made . . . .

Remember you're lost without your love
Remember the cost without your love
Remember you're lost without your love

Ah honey honey
Ah honey honey
Yay

Don't spoil  your fun, honey honey...
A and don't jump the gun.
A tricky dicky situation arrives and
I know that all you're gonna get's a great big surprise

And you been ridin' in them rock and roll cars
You wanna be a back seat star
And 'cos you ain't got into trouble so far
So you think you got it, you think you got it made . . . .

And you been ridin' in them rock and roll cars
You wanna be a back seat star
And 'cos you ain't got into trouble so far
So you think you got it, you think you got it made . . . .

Don't waste your time honey - find a new line.
Don't jump the gun - honey honey - don't spoil your fun.
Don't waste your time - Ooooo, find a new line.
Don't waste your time honey, don't waste your time.
Don't waste your time.


9 To 5
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Nanananana
Get up late, the birds don't wait for anyone
If you're running fast, the bus goes past, too bad
You get to work, you feel a jerk, the boss is mad
He says 'you think we're on go-slow - you better get your cards and go go go'

9 to 5 - you gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time, after 9 to 5 - After 9 to 5

Got no job, you need to earn a bob or two
'Cos all your mates in the same state as you
Elpees careers can buy you beers and pay your way
You're on the dead end of the street, trying to make ends meet

9 to 5 - You gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time after 9 to 5
9 to 5 - You gotta break out in the evening
'Cos you never did believe in all that 9 to 5 - All that 9 to 5

Nanana 9 to 5 Clockin' in and clockin' all the office girls
Oh let me take you out tonight, Joanne
Will ya lend's a fiver Ma I'm broke and I've got a date
She's a cracking bit of stuff, but she don't know when she's had enough

9 to 5 - You gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time after 9 to 5

9 to 5 - You gotta break out in the evening
'Cos you never did believe in all that 9 to 5
All that 9 to 5 - All that 9 to 5
