Sledgehammer
Peter Gabriel
1986

You could have a steam train,
If you'd just lay down your tracks.
You could have an aeroplane flying,
If you bring your blue sky back.

All you do is call me.
I'll be anything you need.

You could have a big dipper,
Going up and down, all around the bends.
You could have a bumper car, bumping.
This amusement never ends.

I want to be your sledgehammer.
Why don't you call my name?
Oh let me be your sledgehammer.
This will be my testimony.

Show me round your fruitcage,
'Cos I will be your honey bee.
Open up your fruitcage,
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be.

I want to be,
Your sledgehammer.
Why don't you call my name?
You'd better call the sledgehammer.
This can be my testimony.
I'm your sledgehammer.
Let there be no doubt about it.

Only you.

Going to build that power.
Build, build up that power.
(Show for me)
Come on, come on, help me do.
(Show for me)
Come on, come on, help me do.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you.

I've been feeding the rhythm.
