Poison

When Poison's 1986 debut "Look What The Cat Dragged In" was released, they instantly became stars, and their popularity rise had seemed to have come out of the blue. Bret Michaels, CC DeVille, Rikki Rockett and Bobby Dahl are a powerful force together! My favorite Poison songs are:

Talk Dirty To Me (CC! Pick up that guitar and talk to me!)
I Want Action (Tonight!)
Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Your Mama Don't Dance
Unskinny Bop
Life Goes On
Something To Believe In

and THIS song which is a PURE example of what rock and roll is REALLY ABOUT!!!!!:

Now listen
Not a dime, I can’t pay my rent
I can barely make it through the week
Saturday night I’d like to make my girl
But right now I can’t make ends meet

I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say

Chorus:
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this

They say I spend my money on women and wine
But I couldn’t tell you where I spent last night
I’m really sorry about the shape I’m in
I just like my fun every now and then

I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say

Chorus

You see I raise a toast to all of us
Who are breakin’ our backs every day
If wantin’ the good life is such a crime
Lord, then put me away
Here’s to ya

Solo

Chorus (3x’s)
