Awesomely Bad Song Lyric of the Day

Awesomely Bad Song Lyric of the Day

Yep, it’s been a while since I featured a song for the Awesomely Bad Lyrics, but I had to change after hearing this song the other day on JACK-fm.  This song’s guitar riffs are still pretty sweet to this day, but there’s definitely an absence of brain smarts when it comes to the lyrics.  From 1984’s Out of the Cellar Album, here is...

Round & Round by RATT

Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abuse ourselves
Get in our way, we'll put you on your shelf



OK, I honestly have no Idea what these lyrics mean. Would someone fill me in on this? I used to think they were talking about prostitutes, or being a rad street gang, but when they get to the “Tighten our belts, abuse ourselves” part I get all confused.  And how the heck did they get Milton Berele in the video?  Anyhow, here’s the rest of the Steven Percy’s lyrical masterpiece thank to eLyrics.

Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abuse ourselves
Get in our way, we'll put you on your shelf
Another day, some other way
We're gonna go, but then we'll see you again
I've had enough, we've had enough
Cold in vain, she said

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin'
I knew right from the start
You'd put an arrow through my heart

(chorus)
Round and round
With love we'll find a way just give it time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I'll tell you why

Dig

Lookin' at you, lookin' at me
The way you move, you know it's easy to see
The neon light's on me tonight
I've got a way, we're gonna prove it tonight
Like Romeo to Juliet
Time and time, I'm gonna make you mine
I've had enough, we've had enough
It's all the same, she said

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin'
I knew right from the start
You'd put an arrow through my heart

(chorus)

Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abused ourselves
Get in our way, we'll put you on your shelf

(chorus)

Round and round
With love we'll find a way just give it time, time, time, time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I'll tell you why, why, why, why
Round and round
