Lyric "Sledgehammer"

[Bass: Tony Levin]

[Intro]
Hey hey you
Tell me how have you been?

[Verse 1]
You could have a steam train
If you just lay down your tracks
You could have an aeroplane flying
If you bring your blue sky back

All you do is call me
I'll be anything you need

You could have a big dipper
Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car, bumping
This amusement never ends

[Chorus]
I wanna be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name?
Oh, let me be your sledgehammer
This will be my testimony

[Verse 2]
Show me 'round your fruit cage
Cause I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruit cage
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

[Chorus]
I wanna be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name?
You'd better call the sledgehammer
Put your mind at rest
I'm going to be - the sledgehammer
This can be my testimony
I'm your sledgehammer
Let there be no doubt about it

Sledge sledge sledgehammer

[Outro]
I get it right
I kicked the habit
Shed my skin
This is the new stuff
I go dancing in (We can go dancing in)
Oh, won't you show for me?
And I will show for you
Show for me, I will show for you
Yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you
You been coming through
Gonna build that power
Build, build up that power, hey
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
Going to feel that power, build in you
Come on, come on, help me do
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
It's what we're doing, doing
All day and night
