Motörhead - Born to Raise Hell



Motörhead is a band I don't have any intellectual reasons to love. Well, I do, but they don't really matter. Lemmy Kilmister and his goons are just better at rock n' roll than most humans are. The success of our relationship relies on a well-established routine. I zero-in on one song, play it until I know the lyrics by heart, have it embedded in my brain and drive everyone crazy around me. During the professional downtime period I experienced, it was BORN TO RAISE HELL, I played ad nauseam. No reason, really. Except that it drove me to boogie away whatever obstacle that was thrown my way then. Now that it's over, I thought somebody else could benefit from happily aggressive, dreadfully wise wave length. If Chuck Berry had been making music in the eighties, he would've sounded a little bit like this.

Motörhead - BORN TO RAISE HELL


Listen up here, I'll make it quite clear
I'm gonna put some boogie in your ear
Shake and bop, don't you stop
Cance like a maniak until you drop

I don't mind, I don't mind
I can tun a razor right up your spine
What are you waiting for
What do you think you were created for

Show us, you care, show us you dare
You don't know what happened, not if you weren't there

Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Voodoo medicine cast my spell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Play that guitar just like ringing a bell
Take it or leave it

Going for broke, rock 'til you choke
It don't matter if you drink or smoke
Speak through the beat, get up on your feet
Sweating like a hpund dog, white as a sheet

Don't you be scared, don't you be scared
Everybody terrified, it don't seem fair
What are you waiting for
What do you think you were created for

Out of your seat, blind in the heat
Do the nasty boogie mama, stomp your feet
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell

We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Go back to zero take a pill and get well
Be a good soldier and die where you fell

Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Go on out and boogie 'cos you never can tell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Be a good soldier and die where you fell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
