Two more good ones from 'Love It To Death'

Alice Cooper - Vocals and Harmonica
Neal Smith - Drums and Vocals
Dennis Dunaway - Bass and Vocals
Glen Buxton - Lead Guitar
Michael Bruce - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, Piano and Organ

05/09 - Is It My Body (Bruce, Cooper, Dunaway, Smith, Buxton)

This was the 'B' side to the 'I'm Eighteen' single

The lyrics were partly inspired by being depressed in the Abbot Hotel in Greenwich Village.

It's a stage favourite, and regularly crops up in the live set



"What have I got
that makes you want to love me
Now is it my body
Someone I might be
Somethin' inside me

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

What does it take
to get inside of your mind
Give me a break, yeah, yeah
and take a chance for the very first time

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

What have I got
That makes you want to love me
Now is it my body
Or someone I might be
Or somethin' inside me

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am
Oh.."


Next is 'Hallowed By My Name', which is quite a spooky song!

It's the first of two songs on the album that deal with religion (both Alice Cooper and Neil Smith had very religion upbringings)

Bob Ezrin plays keyboards on the song

06/09 - Hallowed By Thy Name (Smith)



"Gather round right now and hear me whisper
The words of the prison, the words of laughter
The lords and the ladies were fixing their hair-dos
Cursing their lovers
cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name

Come all you sinners, come now in your glory
And my ears will listen to your dirty stories
You're fighting to go up, 'cause you're on your way down
Cursing their lovers
Cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name

Sluts and the hookers have taken your money
The queens are out dancing but now they`re not funny
'Cause there goes one walkin' away with your sonny
Cursing their lovers
Cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name"
