Song lyrics[edit]

Appetite for Destruction (1987)[edit]

  • Welcome to the jungle
    We've got fun 'n' games.
    We got everything you want
    Honey, we know the names.
    We are the people that can find
    Whatever you may need.
    If you got the money, honey
    We got your disease.
  • Welcome to the jungle.
    It gets worse here everyday.
    Ya learn ta live like an animal
    In the jungle where we play.
    If you got a hunger for what you see
    You'll take it eventually
    You can have anything you want
    But you better not take it from me.
    • Welcome to the Jungle
  • I get up around seven
    Get out of bed around nine
    And I don't worry about nothing no
    'Cause worrying's a waste of my...time.
  • Take me down
    To the Paradise City
    Where the grass is green
    And the girls are pretty.
    Oh, won't you please take me home?
  • She's got a smile that it seems to me
    Reminds me of childhood memories
    Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky.
    Now and then when I see her face,
    She takes me away to that special place.
    And if I stayed too long
    I'd probably break down and cry.
  • She's got eyes of the bluest skies
    As if they thought of rain.
    I'd hate to look into those eyes
    And see an ounce of pain.
    Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
    Where as a child I'd hide
    And pray for the thunder and the rain
    To quietly pass me by.
    • Sweet Child o' Mine

G N' R Lies (1988)[edit]

  • Shed a tear 'cause I'm missin' you.
    I'm still alright to smile
    Girl, I think about you every day now
    Was a time when I wasn't sure
    But you set my mind at ease
    There is no doubt
    You're in my heart now.
  • I been walkin' the streets at night
    Just tryin' to get it right.
    Hard to see with so many around.
    You know I don't like bein' stuck in the crowd.
    And the streets don't change but baby the name
    I ain't got time for the game
    'Cause I need you.
    Yeah, yeah, but I need you.
    • Patience

Use Your Illusion I (1991)[edit]

  • When I look into your eyes
    I can see a love restrained
    But darlin' when I hold you
    Don't you know I feel the same?
    'Cause nothin' lasts forever.
    And we both know hearts can change
    And it's hard to hold a candle
    In the cold November rain
    We've been through this
    Such a long long time
    Just tryin' to kill the pain.

Use Your Illusion II (1991)[edit]

  • D'you wear a black armband
    When they shot the man
    Who said "Peace could last forever"
    And in my first memories
    They shot Kennedy.
    I went numb when I learned to see
    So I never fell for Vietnam
    We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
    That you can't trust freedom
    When it's not in your hands
    When everybody's fightin'
    For their promised land.
    • Civil War, written by Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagen
  • I don't need one more war.
    What's so civil about war anyway?
    • Civil War
