I’m a nice classically trained irish fiddler – and I do love jazz and the blues, but Motley Crue is not the kind of band I would see live, not because of their music, or use of colorful language, but because at 4’7″ unless I get remarkable seats, I’d not see much. As it is on yourtube I get a fare idea of what their shows were like, and I do like the music and theater.

Primal Scream was not a song I was going to lusten to, until I heard Mick Mars talk about how fun it was to play, and I find the words ring true, especially toward the end with “If you want to live life on your own terms You gotta be willing to crash and burn” — that is what I fear the most, crashing and burning.

Broke dick dog
My head slung low
Tail knocked in the dirt

Time and time
Of being told
Trash is all I’m worth

When I was just a young boy
Had to take a little grief
Now that I’m much older
Don’t put your shit on me

Grab it and shake
Reach down scrape it
You just got to

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say “Hey”
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say Janou said
Meters are red
Blow a neurotic fuse Show a little
A little pain
Unlock a lotta truth

When daddy was a young man
His home was livin’ Hell
Mama tried to be so perfect
Now her mind’s a padded cell,

ya Grab it and shake
Reach down scrape it
You just got to

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say “Hey”
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say

Hey man, get out of my face
I deal with my problems at my own pace
With your screwed-down, anti-human views
Deal with the pressures by playing the blues
If you want to live life on your own terms
You gotta be willing to crash and burn

Primal scream and shout
Let that mother out
You just gotta say “Hey”
Primal scream & shout
Oooh tear it out
You just gotta say

Scream shout

Come on come on come on
Scream shout
