A little something about Warrant
Hits like "Heaven," "Cherry Pie" and "I Saw Red" made them favorites with the MTV crowd. Their hit "Cherry Pie" is described by VH1 as being as "brilliant as sleaze ever was". After years as L.A.'s best-kept secret, the band signed with Columbia Records in the late 80s and debuted in 1989 with Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. Although the album was a success, initially reaching No. 27 on the U.S. charts, it wasn't until the release of its second single, a ballad called "Heaven," that sales went into overdrive. But that's when things started to fray. "Heaven" was followed by another ballad, "Sometimes She Cries," which, coupled with the band's ratted hair and glam costumes, caused some members of the press to doubt their credibility.

Lyrics below : "Heaven", "Cherry Pie"


Got a picture of your houseAnd you're standing by the doorIt's black and white and fadedAnd it's looking pretty wornSee the factory that I workedSilhouetted in the backThe memories are gray,But man they're really coming backI don't need to be the king of the worldAs long as I'm the hero of this little girlCHORUS:Heaven isn't too far away,Closer to it every day.No matter what your friends might say...How I love the way you moveAnd the sparkle in your eyesThere's a color deep inside themLike a blue suburban skyWhen I come home late at nightAnd you're in bed asleepI wrap my arms around youSo I can feel you breatheI don't need to be a supermanAs long as you will always be my biggest fanHeaven isn't too far away,Closer to it every day. (oh-oh)No matter what your friends might say...We'll find a way(Whoa, yeah, babe)Now the lights are going outAlong the boulevardThe memories come rushing backAnd it makes it pretty hardI've got nowhere left to goAnd no one really caresI don't know what to doBut I'm never giving up on youHeaven isn't too far awayCloser to it every day. (oh-oh)No matter what your friends sayI know we're gonna find a wayHeavenWhoa-oh-oh-oh-ohHeavenWhoa-oh-oh-oh-oh OhHeavenIt's not too far awayOh-ohWhoa-oh-oh-oh-ohYeah

Cherry Pie She's my cherry pie Cool drink of water Such a sweet surprise Tastes so good Make a grown man cry Sweet Cherry Pie Yeah Wow Heh Heh Well swinging on the front porch Swinging on the lawn Swinging where we want Cause there ain't nobody home Swingin' to the left and Swingin' to the right I think about baseball I'll swing all night, yeah Yeah, yeah - huh! Swingin in the living room Swingin' in the kitchen Most folks don't Cause they're too busy bitchin' Swingin' in there Cause she wanted me to feed her So I mixed up the batter And she licked the beater I scream, you scream, We all scream for her Don't even try Cause you can't ignore her CHORUS She's my cherry pie Cool drink of water Such a sweet surprise Tastes so good make a grown man cry Sweet cherry pie Oh yeah She's my cherry pie Put a smile on your face Ten miles wide Looks so good Bring a tear to your eye Sweet cherry pie Yeah sweet cherry pie Yeah Swing it All night long Swing it Hey, hey, Ow! I'm a trained professional Swingin' in the bathroom Swingin' on the floor Swingin' so hard Forgot to lock the door In walks her daddy Standin' six foot four Said, "You ain't gonna swing with my daughter no more." CHORUS Sweet Cherry Pie Yeah! Huh! Swing it!
