Lyrics:

Dance to the beat of the living dead
You'll see baby, stay away from there
Raw power is sure come runnin' to you

If you're alone and you got the feel
So am I baby let's roll on outta here
Raw power is sure to come runnin' to you

Raw power's got a magic touch
Raw power is much too much
Happiness is a guaranteed
It was made for you and me

Raw power, honey just won't quit
Raw power, I can feel it
Raw power, hear it can't be spared
Poppin' eyes and a fashion feed
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
Everybody always tryin' to tell me what to do

And you know that ain't right

I look in the eyes of the southern girl
Fall deep in love in the underworld
Raw power is sure to come runnin' to you

If you're alone and you got the shakes
So am I baby and I got what it takes
Raw power is sure to come runnin' to you

Raw power's got a healing hand
Raw power can destroy a man
Raw power is so more than soul
Got a son called rock and roll

Raw power, honey just won't quit
Raw power, I can feel it
Raw power, honey give me a spin
Get up baby and kiss my feet

Ev'rybody always tryin' to tell me what to do
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
Ev'rybody always tryin' to tell me what to do
Don't you try, don't you try to tell me what to do
Raw power it's got no place to go
Raw power honey you don't wanna know
Raw power is a guaranteed O.D.
Raw power is laughin' at you and me

I wanna know

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?
Can you feel it? Can you feel it?
Raw power, raw power
Can you feel it? Can you feel it?


Quotes regarding the song

We did two Stooges songs, but Axl liked the vocal on "Raw Power" the best.
Guitar Player, January 1994

One of the first bands I heard that really turned me when I was about 13 was Iggy And The Stooges. I was in a band later that was lucky enough to do a cover and it was Guns N' Roses we did Raw Power on The Spaghetti Incident and I think Axl and I did it like a duet-ish type of thing.
