Number-One Hit
This song was a
Number-One Hit!
Stand Back!
Said stand back!

What are those dogs doing sniffing at my feet
They're on to something, picking up
Picking up this heat
This heat

Give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as anything you've seen
Get alive with the dreamer's dream

You know your culture from your trash
You know your plastic from your cash
When I lose sight of the track
You know the way back
But I know you

You know your stripper from your paint
You know your sinner from your saint
Whenever heaven's doors are shut
You kick them open, but
I know you

Give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as any place you've been
Get alive with the dreamer's dream

Stand back!
Said stand back!

Can't you see I've lost control
I'm getting indiscreet
You're moving in so close 'til I'm picking up
Picking up this heat
This heat

Give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as anything you've seen
Get alive with the dreamer's dream

You know your green from your red
You know the quick from the dead
So much better than the rest
You think you've been blessed
But I know you

You know your ladder from your snake
You know the throttle from the brake
You know your straight line from a curve
You've got a lot of nerve
But I know you

Give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as any place you've been
Get alive with the dreamer's dream

Everybody nosedive
Hold your breath, count to five
Backslap, boobytrap
Cover it up in bubblewrap
Room shake, earthquake
Find a way to stay awake
It's gonna blow, it's gonna break
This is more than I can take

Oh yeah, I need steam
Feel the steam around me

Ah you're turning up the heat
When I start to dream aloud
See you move your hands and feet
Won't you step into this cloud of steam
This steam

Give me steam
And how you feel can make it real
Real as anything you've seen
Get alive with the dreamer's dream

Help me yeah
Ready to steam out the log jam
Stir crazy from the freezer to the foil
Water's bubbling, it's b..b..b..bubbling
Bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling
Like it's coming to the boil
Give me steam, lady
Give me the steam around me now
On a high
Comin' alive
Said give me some steam
