Songtekst

You could have a steam train
If you'd 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

I want to be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name?
Oh, let me be your sledgehammer
This will be my testimony

Show me 'round your fruitcage
Cause I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruitcage
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I want to 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

I've kicked the habit (kicked the habit, kicked the habit)
Shed my skin (shed my skin)
This is the new stuff (this is the new stuff)
I go dancing in (we go dancing in)
Oh, won't you show for me (show for me)
I will show for you (show for you)
Please, show for me (show for me)
I will show for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
(Show for me)

Only you, you've been coming through (show for you)
Going to build that power
Build, build up that power (show for me)
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm (show for you)
Going to feel that power, hey, build in you (show for me)
Come on, come on, help me do
Come on, come on, help me do (show for you)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
(Show for me)
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm (show for you)
It's what we're doing, doing
All day and night (show fo me)
Come on, come on, help me do
Come on, come on, help me do (show for you)
Yeah, yeah, yeah....
