Verse 1

Ready for action, nip it in the bud
Roll out the carpet and bring in the new blood
Roll out the barrel and don’t be late
Turn on the radio and travel interstate

Ready for action, bring out the gong
If you’re on the phone talk all night long
Talk to a friend and then ride a bike
Like what you see and go on a hunger strike

Ready for action, the fog is getting clearer
I’ll see you all the other side of the mirror
If you’re getting cold then warm yourself up
Tell your fortune by the dregs in the coffee cup

Ready for action, a place and a time
You’ve got to pounce when you know you’re in your prime
Do what you do; I know it could be good
Real genius is capturing your childhood

Verse 2

Ready for action, tell me where to go
If I was asleep Mr Sandman said so
Give me the cues, enter stage right
Give me a wink I can do it all night

Ready for action, a bull at a gate
Planning the strike before it’s too late
Straight out of bed every day of the week
Kissing the mothers and babies on the cheek

Ready for action, one hand on the prize
I need satisfaction before I get wise
Owning the clothes, I cut my own hair
Playing the game of relationship solitaire

Ready for action, the camera and the lights
Foremost expert and champion of civil rights
Stay up late; don’t let a thing slip by
Keep your eyes on the road and let out a battle cry

Verse 3

Ready for action, foot on the gas
I’m not the guy you should try to harass
Fist in the air, smile on my face
Out of my way and give me some breathing space

Ready for action, looking real good
Just moved in now I’m part of the neighbourhood
Rip off my shirt, let out a roar
Stop if you think you’ve heard this one before

Ready for action, shaking all the hands
I do not care if no one understands
I can roll now I’ll show you how to rock
Fast as a gun and first off the starting block

Ready for action, deaf dumb and mute
Keep it clean and accept no substitute
Make up your mind, stop sitting on the fence
Ready for action and full of confidence
