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 Oooh 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 Oooh she's a killing machine She's got everything Like a moving mouth body control and everything I love her I need her I seed her Yeah She turns me on Alright hold on 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 Oooh 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 on 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 Oooh 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 on tight I'm a highway star I'm a highway star I'm a highway star
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 wish she'd hold my hand Maybe she could 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
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... Here in this prison Of my own making Year after day I have grown Into a hero But there's no worship Where have they hidden my thrown...
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 Somebody Somebody Someone must go I was hurt when I was younger By a woman who was cold She took my name She took my body And she threw away my soul 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
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 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 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 made 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
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 If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw You don't want to live you don't want to cry no more 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
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 the stars Come on let's go Space Truckin' Remember when we did the moonshot And Pony Trekker led the way We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop And everynaut would dance and sway We got music in our solar system We're space truckin' round the stars Come on let's go Space Truckin' The fireball that we rode was moving But now we've got a new machine Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said Man those cats can really swing They got music in their solar system They've rocked around the Milky Way They dance around the Borealice They're Space Truckin' everyday Come on
