Steven Tyler Aerosmith lyrics

Here are some lyrics to classic Aerosmith songs, written by 'The Screamin' Demon' himself
Walk This Way
-Toys in the Attic (1975)
-“Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care”

-These rapidly said lyrics confused even Rum-DMC, when they covered it in the 1980s, as a song on their Raising Hell, album, although they changed a few words

Livin' on the Edge
-Get a Grip (1993)
-“If you can judge a wise man by the color of his skin
Then mister you’re a better man than I”

-This was written almost exactly during the time of the L.A. riots surrounding Rodney King's subsequent beating and arrest by racist L.A. cops

Nine Lives
-Nine Lives (1997)
-“And then at times
I’m so weak from lovin’

I couldn't even carry a tune”

-This does not seem to go over so well with a lot of people

Let the Music Do the Talking
-Done with Mirrors (1985)
-They say one time around is all you get
But I'm still dancin’ so you lost your bet”

-This line was a reference to Joe Perry and Brad Whitford being back in the band

The Other Side
-Pump (1989)
-“You’re cryin’ me a river but I got to get across”
-When it comes to love, it seems Steven Tyler is ready for a song about it, with pen and paper in hand. In this song, he sings a story of a man lovesick, wanting to get out of the same old situation

Dream On
-Aerosmith (1973)
-“I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win”

-Listening to this song, you'd think Steven Tyler was a songwriter all his life. But he actually wrote this song when Aerosmith was starting out

Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)
-Nine Lives (1997)
-"Don’t give me no lip
I’ve got enough of my own"

-This line almost pokes a little fun at himself for having such big lips

-Pump (1989)
-“She got the Cracker Jack now all I want’s the prize”
-The song, which stands for F---up, Insecure, Neurotic, and Emotional, lets Steven Tyler to air out his dirty mind

Shut Up and Dance
-Get a Grip (1993)
-“When you're splittin’ hairs with Mr. Clean
It's like gettin’ head from a guillotine”

-Two guys named Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw helped 'The Toxic Twins' write this one, and only 'The Screamin' Demon' himself could have written the lyrics

Sweet Emotion
-Toys in the Attic (1975)
-"Some sweat hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go musta got up and went"

-This song was a direct assault at Joe Perry's then wife, Elyssa Jerret. Back then, they had a less than friendly relationship and there was even one time when Elyssa brutally beat up Joe, leaving him bloodied and bruised, even biting him
