Appetite for Destruction (1987)
- 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.
- Sweet Child o' Mine, written by Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin
- 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)
- 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.
- Patience, written by Izzy Stradlin
- 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.
Use Your Illusion I (1991)
- 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.
- November Rain, written by Axl Rose
Use Your Illusion II (1991)
- 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
