about

All songs performed by Rags N Riches.
All songs written by Scott Ginn except songs 2,6,10,11 written by Scott Ginn and Phil Bowley
Recorded at Montreux Studios, Sydney - 1990-1993.
Remastered by Scott Ginn at Mazz-XT Music - March-April 2016.

Rags N Riches were a well known rock band during the late 80's and early 90's on the Sydney (Australia) pub rock circuit with a solid live following. Formed out of the touring band for lead vocalist Scott Ginn's solo album 'One Man Army', they delivered their unique brand of 'Rag 'n' Roll' - a blend of commercial hard rock and hair metal with an emphasis on partying and having a good time. One single was released on coloured white vinyl "Dance baby dance w/ Money can't change your mind".
The band's debut album 'Shipwrecked out in the street" was recorded between 1990 and 1993 at Ginn's Montreux Studios but was never released. The band stopped performing after 1993, and the recorded archive of Rags N Riches material sat idle for many years. During 2015-2016 Ginn digitally remastered the original recordings. Finally, after more than 20 years this fine album is released here for the first time.

Reviews:
" if you were there or you love the Hair Metal era and are curious to see how good the Aussie scene was these are pretty much essential buys."
"The best part of course is that they still stand up, they are good solid songs that you can’t help feel could easily have made a mark had they been from the West Coast of America rather than the East Coast of Australia." Mark Rockpit - The Rockpit

Track Name: Delirium/Money can't change your mind
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more

It sure ain't easy to tie me down
But I'm not playing hard to get
I've blown every cent on rock 'n roll
There's nothing to show for it yet
Seven long years is a hell of a time
Waiting for a fool like me
But if it works out, it'll be my shout
And you can start livin' rent free

We've fought through the bad
We've laughed through the good times
Don't throw it away in desperation
No No wooah

Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more

I know it's a shame
And I tried so hard to please you
I wrote you letters every single day
To keep your mind at ease
I've broken promise after promise
I confess - I'm guilty of that crime
I could make it up to you in a single day
I just ain't had the time

wooah
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more

Money can't change your mind
Do anything you wanna do
Money can't change your mind
You can spend up big but hold on to love

wooah
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more
wooah
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more
wooah
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more
wooah
Money can't change your mind
And I know you can't take any more
And I know we've been wasting time
Just hold on a little bit more
Track Name: Long distance runner
I've been in practice I've been training
Dedicate my whole career, look at the shape I'm in
I didn't study books, didn't take no course
Hands on experience, a stayer - no racehorse

Long distance runner
Built for comfort not for speed
Long distance runner
I'm a stayer - not a steed
Long distance runner
Babe the service is guaranteed

Take me out to pasture, while I'm in my prime
Two hundred head of cattle, this paddock bull does fine
I take a deep deep breath, wipe sweat from my brow
Step up, walk in, roll up, ok, we'll act on it right now

Long distance runner
Built for comfort not for speed
Long distance runner
I'm a stayer - not a steed
Long distance runner
Babe the service is guaranteed

While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
What's the rush babe, we got all night
While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
I got a temperature - 104 degrees

Long distance runner
Babe the service is guaranteed

While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
All night, and all day
While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
Let's take it all the way

While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
What's the rush babe, we got all night
While it's hot, take the lot, never stop
I got a temperature - 104 degrees

Track Name: Love train
Love Train
Huff - Puff - To the ground

Casey Jones would roll over in his grave
If he saw what's going in his sacred place
It add a new meaning to the roarin' forties
It's a bit precocious, it's a little bit naughty
We're comin' 'round the mountain, we'll be comin' when we come
The Chatanooga Choo Choo is still number one

When the love train comes to town
Huffin' puffin' 'til the sun goes down
Stoke the fires up, we're gonna
Rock this joint to the ground

Well Petticoat Junction is the place I wanna be
With Billie-Joe and Betty-Sue - one on each knee
Farm living is the life I lead, Green Acres is the place for me
We'll honk our horns in Hooterville, and come around the bend
It's the last train to Clarkesville and I hope it never ends

When the love train comes to town
Huffin' puffin' 'til the sun goes down
Stoke the fires up, we're gonna
Rock this joint to the ground

Rockin' on the love train
Huff - Puff - do your stuff
Rockin' on the love train
Wohoh - Huff - Puff - I just can't get enough

Rockin' on the love train
Rockin' on the love train
Rockin' on the love train
C'mon c'mon c'mon

When the love train comes to town
Huffin' puffin' 'til the sun goes down
Stoke the fires up, we're gonna
Rock this joint to the ground

Track Name: Shipwrecked out in the street
I'm down on the merry go round
Of working nine to five
I just got paid, I wanna get laid
It's one way of staying alive
Sister Sue, She got nothing to do
Maybe she come out and play
Friday night, I'm feeling tight
Wanna get out and rage

Shipwrecked out in the street
Only one man seems to know what I mean
Shipwrecked out in the street
You put a penny in my pocket, can you feel my disease
Shipwrecked out in the street
Only one man seems to know what I mean
Shipwrecked - out in the street
Bangin' on my hotel door - said hey mister please
Won't you give me another little shot of that whiskey - whiskey

Well I'm drinking with a friend of mine, Jim Beam was his name
Ted the Head sitting right next door said "every drink's just the same"
One two or maybe more - I lost count after three
That double scotch, much too hot, sure made mess outta me

Shipwrecked out in the street
Only one man seems to know what I mean
Shipwrecked out in the street
You put a penny in my pocket, can you feel my disease
Shipwrecked out in the street
Only one man seems to know what I mean
Shipwrecked - out in the street
Bangin' on my hotel door - said hey mister please
Won't you give me another little shot of that whiskey - whiskey

Well I'm bangin' on my hotel door - said hey mister please
Won't you give me another little shot of that whiskey - whiskey
Bangin' on my hotel door - said hey mister please
Won't you give me another little shot of that whiskey - whiskey
Bangin' on my hotel door - said hey mister please
Won't you give me another little shot of that whiskey - whiskey
Track Name: Winner takes the lot
Well Aces high and dress cut low
Diamonds 'round her neck
She's a one girl show
And I'm the kind of guy
Who's always stickin' out his neck
I'm the joker in a loaded deck

Well nothing comes from nothing
But lovin' comes easy when you're running hot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot

You're the odds-on favourite - a real sure thing
I got my eyes on you honey
Gonna zero in
And it don't matter what you say
I can shuffle the pack so the cards
Will fall my way
Well some thing's stand to reason
And this hunting season
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot

What I'm really needin'
When lady luck is bleedin' me
And I know what's going on
You're my sugar and spice
You're all things nice
Now it's my turn honey to throw the dice

Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Ooooo -The winner takes the lot
Track Name: Turkish delight
You know it's sweet like honey

Track Name: She's hot
Well I got me some trouble
With a hot little rocker
She told me she was twenty two
Said she was livin' in a flat down town
I don't really think that was true
She turned up in San Francisco
She followed us to Dallas too
Sweet sixteen - she was barely fifteen
And she hadn't even finished school

She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
Attracting all the boys from miles around
She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
She's a cat on heat, on a hot tin roof
She's a problem child - Like dynamite

Now it seems this girl was keen on
More than just meeting the band
She want a love affair with a guy with long hair
No ordinary man would do
So the boys and I got quite a surprise
When we discovered her young disguise
So we said - "you can wait, 'cos you're jailbait
And we wait another year or two"

She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
Attracting all the boys from miles around
She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
She's a cat on heat, on a hot tin roof
She's a problem child - Like dynamite

She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
Attracting all the boys from miles around
She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
Uh huh she's good but I ain't doin' time
She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
Attracting all the boys from miles around
She's hot (She's hot)
She's fine (She's fine)
She's a cat on heat, on a hot tin roof
She's a problem child - Like dynamite
She's a problem child - Like dynamite
Track Name: Dance baby dance
She got wet lips, rub your hips
Draw a fine line
Got the boys excited
Drivin' them right out of their minds
You know it's yum yum, bite my thumb
Dressed in black and blue
There should be a law against it
But I'm not gonna stop you

So Dance baby dance
Do it when you wanna
Dance baby dance
Yeah you can do it all night
Dance baby dance
Do it when you wanna
Dance baby dance
Yeah you can do it all right

Well Sweet Pea - on your knees
It's a magic potion
Never gonna stop
Stuck in perpetual motion
And in the summertime, wintertime
Baby you got style
You keep on rockin' and
Rolling all the boys in the aisle - all the way down

So Dance baby dance
Do it when you wanna
Dance baby dance
Yeah you can do it all night
Dance baby dance
Do it when you wanna
Dance baby dance
Yeah you can do it all right

You can be my honey, be my only one

We'll shake it to the right
Oooo I need your loving, keep my body hummin'
The way you're movin' it
You know you're in the groove so dance

You can be my honey, be my only one
And we'll shake it to the left and
We'll shake it to the right
Oooo I need your loving, keep my body hummin'
The way you're movin' it

Track Name: That's life
I'm always up at dawn
Doin' the dishes
Mowing all the lawns
Dogs are barking, cat's asleep
Got a mortgage
And I'm in too deep
You're nagging on the telephone
Keep on wailing like a saxaphone

But that's life
And I'm doin' fine
I bet a lot of guys would give a lot
To live the life I lead
And that's life
And I'm doin' time
I bet a lot of folks would
Be down on their hands and knees

I got bills and credit cards
Outstanding yet I work so hard
I'm sippin' cocktails by the pool
But still they treat me like a fool
It's easy for me to decide
Between a lover and a snow white bride

And that's life
And I'm doin' fine
I bet a lot of guys would give a lot
To live the life I lead
And that's life
And I'm doin' time
I bet a lot of folks would
Be down on their hands and knees

Well they're all talkin' and the bullsh## keeps walkin'
and the music goes round and round
Don't spin me a line one more time
You must have been the boy who cried wolf

Well that's life
And I'm doin' fine
I bet a lot of guys would give a lot
To live the life I lead
And that's life
And I'm doin' time
I bet a lot of guys would
Be down on their hands and knees

Well sugar that's life
And I'm doin' time
I bet a lot of guys would
Be down on their hands and knees
Well that's life
And I'm doin' fine
Track Name: Never had the time
You're asking what you've done to deserve
Treatment like I'm dishin' out here
You got yourself into this situation
You were wrapped up in your
High society cocktail hours and social flings
To see the writing on the wall appear

You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
You'll never get to see

Some people never ever live and learn
The give and take is what it's worth
But taking's all you ever wanted to do

You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
You'll never get to see

If I left it up to you
Would you break my heart in two
And leave me standing there
Ain't no love left here

You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
You'll never get to see
You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
Oh yeah
You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
Woooh
You never had the time for me
You never had the chance to see
How you acted oh so foolishly
Track Name: I've got your number
Now let me see here
I know it's gotta be around here somewhere
It's written in lipstick
On a little yellow piece of paper
Have you seen it man?
Ahhh - here it is!
Now - let's talk business

Hot baby hot baby I'm on heat
Well I couldn't get you out of my mind all week
Now I'm falling for you with foolish desire
Well I'm burnin' up, and there's flame in my fire
Whooa Ohhhh - I think I'm running red hot
The temperature's rising and it's getting higher
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I wrote it down, but I can't remember the spot

I've got your number
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number
I've got your number but I just can't find it

Well I'm gonna take me a freezing cold shower
That should keep me on simmer for another hour
Blood pressure high, condition critical
Well I'm so excited I can't keep still
No no I just can't keep still
Whooa Ohhhh - I think I'm running red hot
The temperature's rising and it's getting higher
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I wrote it down, but I can't remember the spot

I've got your number
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number
I've got your number but I just can't find it

I've got your number written down somewhere
God knows, I've looked everywhere
I'm boilin' over with desire
There's no way I can control the fire

I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number babe

(Telephone me) I've got your number but I just can't find it
(Telephone me) I've got your number but I just can't find it
(Telephone me) I've got your number but I just can't find it
(Telephone me) I've got your number babe

(36 24 36) But I just can't find it
(36 24 36)
(36 24 36) You know it's gotta be some place around here
(36 24 36) You know it's burnin' burnin' burnin'

I've got your number
I've got your number but I just can't find it
I've got your number
I've got your number but I threw it away

You win some, you lose some.
