here kiss seems to be getting thier studio legs.
a better mix than previous albums.
the drums are a little boxy sounding,
almost like a two track mix.
"rock 'n' roll all night" is on this album,
kiss' signature song,along with "rock bottom",
a favorite of guitar players.
my favorite song off dressed to kill?
she! it's heavy as hell! -lynn


room service
paul stanley

i'm feelin' low, no place to go
and i'm a-thinking that i'm gonna scream
because a hotel all alone is not a
rock and roll star's dream
but just when i'm about to shut the light and go to bed
a lady calls and asks if i'm too tired or if i'm just to dead for
room service, baby i could use a meal
room service, you do what you feel
room service, i take the pleasure with the pain
i can't say no
(my plane's delayed) my legs are lead and i'm afraid
they're gonna keep me waiting here till nine
then a stewardess in a tight blue dress says
"i got the time"
but just as i'm about to take my coat and get my fly
she says "oh please", she's on her knees
and one more time before i leave i get some
room service, baby i could use a meal
room service, you do what you feel
room service, i take the pleasure with the pain
i can't say no, no
in my home town, i'm hangin' 'round
with all the ladies treatin' me real good
a sweet sixteen lookin' hot and mean says
i wish you would
but just as i'm about to tell her "yes, i think i can"
i see her dad, he's getting mad
all the time he knows that i'm in need of
room service, baby i could use a meal
room service, you do what you feel
room service, i take the pleasure with the pain
i can't say no
room service, baby i could use a meal
room service, you do what you feel
room service, i take the pleasure with the pain
i can't say no, i can't say no
room service, baby i could use a meal
room service, you do what you feel
room service, you take the pleasure with the pain
i can't say no
room service, well maybe baby, room service

two timer
gene simmons

she thinks she's high fashion
she thinks she looks divine
and that's what i keep tellin' her
i tell her all the time
and she tells me she likes fast cars
she says she likes mine the best
and just because of that, baby
you think she'd forget the rest, no, no, no
just call me a three time loser
that's all i'll ever be
'cause my baby's such a two timer
you know she's two timing, she's a-two timing me
two timer, my baby is a two timer
my baby's a two timer
my baby's a two timer
my baby, she's a-two timing me, timer
two timer
just call me a three time loser
that's all i'll ever be
'cause my baby's such a two timer
you know she's two timing, she's a-two timing me
two timer, two timer
my baby's a two timer
my baby's a two timer
my baby, she's a-two timing me, two timer
my baby is a two timer
she's nothin' but a two timer
it's the truth baby, you're a two timer
my baby is a two timer
my baby is a two timer

paul stanley

she's a dancer, a romancer
i'm a capricorn and she's a cancer
she saw my picture in a music magazine
when she met me, said she'd get me
touched her hips and told me that she'd let me
i took her hand, baby this is what i said
i said baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'cause i just can't wait
lady, won't you take me down to my knees
you can do what you please
come on and love me
i'm a man, i'm no baby
and you're lookin' every inch a lady
you're good lookin' and you're lookin' like you should be good
you were distant, now you're nearer
i can feel your face inside the mirror
the lights are out and i can feel you, baby, with my hand
so baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'cause i just can't wait
lady, won't you take me down to my knees
you can do what you please
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me
baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'cause i just can't wait
lady, won't you take me down to my knees
you can do what you please
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me
come on and love me

anything for my baby
paul stanley

anything for my baby
i would steal anything for my baby
i'd wheel and deal anything for my baby
oh
i'm in love and it feels so good
'cause i need her, don't mistreat her
and i tell her so
when i saw her and she looked my way
i was lonely, she's my only
and i've gotta say that
i would steal anything for my baby
i'd wheel and deal anything for my baby
crawl or kneel, anything for my baby
in the morning when i raise my head
she's beside me, she can hide me
when i'm feelin' low
if i'm thinkin' everything's all wrong
my girl shakes me, she awakes me
then i really know that
i would steal anything for my baby
i'd wheel and deal anything for my baby
crawl or kneel, anything for my baby
don't you know that
i would steal anything for my baby
i would wheel and deal anything for my baby
i would crawl or kneel, anything for my baby
i'd do anything
i would give anything for my baby
i would die or live, anything for my baby
i would t-t-t-t-take or give anything for my baby
yes, i would take anything for my baby
i would build or break anything for my baby
i would rob or take anything for my baby
i would do anything for my baby
i would steal anything for my baby
i would wheel and deal

she
gene simmons, stephen coronel

she walks by moonlight
no one really knows
enchanted starlight
never goin' home
i know she's goin' down, goin'
everybody knows she's so good
doin' well for others
she doesn't really know
the powers are within her
as she takes off her clothes
i know she's goin' down, goin'
everybody knows she's so good
doin' well for others
she doesn't really know
the powers are within her
as she takes off her clothes
i know she's goin' down, goin'
everybody knows she's so good

love her all i can
paul stanley

i remember the times i was lonely without her
now she's mine and i spend my times dreamin' about her
love her all i can and try to understand
the things that make her glad
the things that make her sad
i'm a lucky guy, i hardly ever cry
and when the world looks bad
she's never ever sad
she's so easy to please and it doesn't take money, no, no
we can have a good time when the skies aren't sunny
ah, i love her all i can and try to understand
the things that make her glad
the things that make her sad
i'm a lucky guy, i hardly ever cry
and when the world looks bad
she's never ever sad
whoo
i remember the times i was lonely without her
now she's mine and i spend my time dreamin' about her
i love her all i can and try to understand
the things that make her glad
the things that make her sad
i'm a lucky guy, i hardly ever cry
and when the world looks bad
she's never ever sad
