"STICK UP FOR LOVE" er ved siden av "Ridin' In The Race" den mest rockete låten på "Hot Line". Høyt tempo og drivende gitarer anført av Svein Finjarn gjør "STICK UP FOR LOVE" til en god indikator på hvordan rock'n'roll-bandet New Jordal Swingers låt fra scenen i 1980. I likhet med Eigil Berg var også Svein som låtskriver på denne tiden inspirert av Dave Edmunds og Nick Lowe i Rockpile, noe dette sporet tydelig viser.  

Stick Up For Love

(Svein Finjarn/Audun Tylden)

Her whisky was strong

And so were her cigarettes

And not before long

I was trapped in her net

It wasn't until the door-lock snapped

I started to feel

I was caught in a trap

 

The phone went dead

And I muttered a curse

The girl was ahead

And the game was hers

She lowered her voice

Starting dimmin' the lights

I had no choice

But to stay overnight

 

She soon made it clear

That I had no retreat

She started to steer me

Towards her suite

I pleaded and begged

With meager success

The girl had me pegged

I was stuck in a mess

 

She said

“You can forget about your money

This is a stick up for love

You can forget about your money

This is a stick up for love

Well, I'm in need of you honey

That's all I'm dreamin' of

This is a stick up for love

This is a stick up for love”
