Highway Star

Oah nobody gonna take my car
I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It's gonna break the speed of sound

Oh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power
Big fat tyres and everything
I love it and I need it, I bleed it
Yeah it's a wild hurricane
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my girl
I'm gonna keep her to the end
Nobody gonna have my girl
She stays close on every bend

Oh she's a killing machine
She's got everything
A moving mouth
Body control and everything
I love her an' I need her, I seed her
Yeah she turns me on
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my head
I got speed inside my brain
Nobody gonna steal my head
Now that I'm on the road again

Oh I'm in heaven again
I've got everything
Like a moving ground
An open road and everything
I love it and I need it, I seed it
Eight cylinders all mine
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my car
I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It's gonna break the speed of sound

Oh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power
Big fat tyres and everything
I love it and I need it, I bleed it
Yeah it's a mad hurricane
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star
I'm a highway star
I'm a highway star

Maybe I'm a Leo

Peeping 'round the door, I got a big surprise
Couldn't see a thing but open skies
They've taken her away - Where is she now?

Wish that she was here, I wish she'd hold my hand
Maybe she would laugh, maybe understand
Why was I so cruel? Where is she now?

Acting like a fool, I had to make her cry
Maybe I'm a Leo but I ain't a lion
I'm hurting oh so bad - I want her now

Pictures of Home

Somebody's shouting up at a mountain
Only my own words return
Nobody's up there, it's a deception
When will I ever learn?

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And whispering pictures of home

Wondering blindly, how can they find me?
Maybe they don't even know
My body is shaking, anticipating
The call of the black footed crow-ouh

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And taunting with pictures of home

Here in this prison of my own making
Year after day I have grown
Into a herobut there's no worship
Where have they hidden my throne-ouh?

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And screaming out pictures of home

Never Before

Somebody, somebody come to my side
I'm tired, I'm crying, I'm sick inside
My woman, that woman just wasn't right

Help me now please my friend
I never felt so bad before
Never never before

So funny, so funny, just like a show
One name, two people, all in a row-ouh
Somebody, somebody, someone must go

Help me now please my friend
I never felt so bad before
Never never before

I was hurt when I was younger
By a woman who was cold-ouh
She took my name, she took my body
Then she threw away my soul

I can't hide, I can't hide my misery
I know my sorrow won't set me free
She did it, d'you see? She did it to me

Help me now please my friend
I never felt so bad before
Never never before

Smoke on the Water

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground.

Smoke on the water,
Fire in the sky
Smoke on the water.

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race.

Smoke on the water,
Fire in the sky.
Smoke on the water.

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water,
Fire in the sky.
Smoke on the water.

Lazy

You're lazy... Just stay in bed
You're lazy... Just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread oh no

If you're drowning
You don't clutch no straw
No no, if you're drowning
You don't clutch no straw
You don't want to live
You don't want to cry no more no no

Well my trying ain't done no good
I said my trying ain't done no good
You don't make no effort
No not like you should

Lazy... You just stay in bed
Lazy... You just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread
Yeah

Space Truckin'

Well we had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
Meeting all the groovey people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealice
We're space truckin' 'round the stars

Come on, come on, come on
Let's go space truckin'
Come on, come on, come on
Space truckin'

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop
And every 'naut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We're space truckin' 'round the stars

Come on, come on, come on
Let's go space truckin'
Come on, come on, come on
Space truckin'

The fireball that we rode was moving
But now we've got a new machine
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, the freak said
Man those cats can really swing
They got music in their solar system
They've rocked around the Milky Way
They danced around the Borealice
They're space truckin' everyday

Come on, come on, come on
Let's go space truckin'
Come on, come on, come on
Space truckin'

Come on, come on, come on
Let's go space truckin'
Come on, come on, come on
Space truckin'

Yeah yeah yeah space truckin'
Yeah yeah yeah space truckin'...
