Released in 1991, 12 years after "My Sharona", this rare video was actually The Knack's second highest charting hit in the U.S. (#9 - Mainstream Rock Tracks chart) behind "My Sharona", which was #1 for six weeks in 1979. "Good Girls Don't" reached #11 and "Baby Talks Dirty" #38. I'm sure many of you wise guys never even knew The Knack had a second hit, but their debut album "Get The Knack" was at #1 for six weeks and was one of the fastest selling debut albums of all time, so you know it must have had some good songs on it, and it most certainly does. This song is from the album "Serious Fun" (1991) which is also worth checking out, as is "Round Trip" (1981), "Zoom" (1998), "Normal As The Next Guy" (2001) and their initial follow up to "Get The Knack", "But The Little Girls Understand" (1980).

Allright! Baby!

One shot, ecstasy
Funk house fever got a hold on me
Big bang, bedroom scene
Shakedown cruise on a mean machine

I'm a rocket o'love, take me
I'm a rocket o'love, ride
I'm a rocket o'love

Oh yeah! Now listen...

So fine, shake it down
Bring your thing down to Obeah town
Shotgun, shing-a-ling
One, two, one two three, hey!!

I'm a rocket o'love, take me
I'm a rocket o'love, ride
I'm a rocket o'love

Well, I'm a driver, and I'm a raver
And I'm a flamer, yes I'm the savior
Ooh, ooh, and I'm a diver, yeah!, and I'm a craver
Oh, baby, baby, look at me, I'm on fire!

I'm a rocket o'love, take me
I'm a rocket o'love, ride
I'm a rocket o'love

Ride on the rocket o'love!
