  1. Reckless Life (3:20)
  2. I'm reckless and feelin' no pain
    You know I've got no need to control
    Livin' with the danger
    I'm always on the edge now
    With million dollar visions that I hold
    Livin' like this never ever
    Tore my life apart
    I know how to maintain
    And you know I know my part
    
    On a holiday, a permanent vacation
    I'm living on a cigarette with wine
    I'm never alone 'cause I've got myself
    Yes, I imitate myself all of the time
    
    Livin' like this never ever
    Tore my life apart
    I know how to maintain
    'Cause it's comin' from my heart
    
    I lead a reckless life
    And I don't need your advice
    I lead a reckless life
    And you know it's my only vice
    
    Reckless life
    I lead a reckless life
    I lead a reckless life
    And you know it's my only...
    
    Reckless life
    I lead a reckless life
    I lead a reckless life
    And you know it's my only...
    Hey, hey - yeah!
  3. Nice Boys (3:02)
  4. She hit town like a rose in bloom
    Smellin' sweet, said sweet perfume
    The color faded and the petals died
    Down in the city, no one cried
    In the streets, the garbage lies
    Protected by a million flies
    The roaches so big
    You know that they got bones
    They moved in and made a tenement home
    
    I said nice boys
    Don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    I'm not a nice boy!
    
    Sweet sixteen she was fresh and clean
    Wanted so bad to be part of the scene
    She met the man and she did the smack
    Paid the price layin' flat on her back
    Wanted so bad just to please the boys
    They ended up just being a toy
    Played so hard burned her life away
    Lies were told no promises made
    
    You know nice boys
    Don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    I'm not a nice boy and I never was!
    
    Young and fresh when she hit town
    Hot for kicks just to get around
    But now she lays in a filthy room
    She kills the pain with
    A flick and a spoon
    And in the streets the garbage lies
    Protected by a million flies
    You know the roaches so big
    You know that they got bones
    Moved in and made a tenement home
    
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    No,no,no,no,no,no,no,no baby
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    I bet you mama said
    'Nice boys don't play rock and roll'
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys don't play rock and roll
    Nice boys!

    (Whistle)
    Guess I needed sometime to get away
    I needed some piece of mind
    Some piece of mind that'll stay
    So I thumbed it down to Sixth and L.A.
    Maybe a Greyhound could be my way
    
    Police and Niggers, that's right
    Get out of my way
    Don't need to buy none of your
    Gold chains today
    I don't need no bracelets
    Clamped in front of my back
    Just need my ticket; 'til then
    Won't you cut me some slack?
    
    You're one in a million
    Yeah, that's what you are
    You're one in a million, babe
    You're a shooting star
    Maybe someday we'll see you
    Before you make us cry
    You know we tried to reach you
    But you were much too high
    Much too high, much too high,
    Much too high, yes, ow!
    
    Immigrants and faggots
    They make no sense to me
    They come to our country
    And think they'll do as they please
    Like start some mini Iran,
    Or spread some fuckin' disease
    They talk so many goddamn ways
    It's all Greek to me
    
    Well some say I'm lazy
    And others say that's just me
    Some say I'm crazy
    I guess I'll always be
    But it's been such a long time
    Since I knew right from wrong
    It's all the means to an end, I
    I keep it movin' along
    
    You're one in a million
    Oo, you're a shooting star
    You're one in a million, babe
    You know that you are
    Maybe someday we'll see you, Oo
