97h: Nathan Lane / Metallica

Metallica performs "Fuel"

.....Nathan Lane
.....Metallica

Nathan Lane: Ladies and gentlemen - Metallica!

Metallica:
"Gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire, oh!"

Turn me on, and I see red
Adrenaline crash and crack my head
Nitro junkie, paint me dead
And I see red.

I run across through black and white
War horse, war head, buck 'em, man
White knuckle tight
Through black and white.

Oh, when I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean.
And then I burn
Turning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline.

So gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

Turn on beyond the bone
Swallow future, spit out hope
Burn your face upon the chrome.

Hey, hey, hey!

Take the corner, going to crash
Headlights, headlines
Another junkie, who lives too fast
Lives way too fast, fast, fast!

Oh, when I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean.
And then I burn
Turning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline.

So gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

[ break ]

Oh, I burn!

Oh, when I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean.
And on and on
Turning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline.

Gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire, yeah!

Oh, I burn!"
