Status Quo - I didn't mean it

When you say those words, those three little words 
You're in at the deep end 
Give up the night times, give up the high times 
Give up the weekend 
Give up the chance to be your own man 
Let the feeling take over 
The only way out is to lie if you can 
But you don't have the knack 
And you'll go crawling back, saying 

I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said when I said I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said it was only a game 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to tell you in so many words, I didn't mean it 
I felt tied down, my pride down 
That I put that lie down 
The prize now for you is me 

Well I was like you and all I could do was 
Give up and surrender 
The people can trace what they did in my face 
But they're just pretenders 
They told me mercenary action today 
Is a line as simple and pure 
But what if you found you made a mistake 
The medicine's worse than the cure 
And you'll be back for sure, saying 

I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said when I said I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said it was only a game 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to tell you in so many words, I didn't mean it 
I felt tied down, my pride down 
That I put that lie down 
The prize now for you is me 

Give up the chance to be your own man 
Let the feeling take over 
The only way out is to lie if you can 
But you don't have the knack 
And you'll go crawling back, saying 

I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said when I said I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to say what I said it was only a game 
I didn't mean it, I didn't mean it 
I didn't mean to tell you in so many words, I didn't mean it 
I felt tied down, my pride down 
That I put that lie down 
The prize now for you is me 

Status Quo - I knew the bride

Well the bride looked a picture in the gown that her momma wore 
When she was married herself nearly twenty-seven years before 
They had to change the style a little but it looked just fine 
Stayed up all night but they got it finished just in time 

Now on the arm of her daddy she's walking down the aisle 
And she catches my eye and she gives me a secret smile 
Maybe it's too old-fashioned but we were once close friends 
But the way she looks today she never could have then 

Well I can see her now in her tight blue jeans 
Pumping all her money in the record machine 
Spinning like a top, you shoulda seen her go 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 

Now a proud daddy only wanna give his little girl the best 
So he put down a grand on a cosy little lovers nest 
You could have called the reception an unqualified success 
And a posh hotel for a hundred and fifty guests 

Well I can see her now drinking with the boys 
Breaking their hearts like they were toys 
She used to love to party, she used to love to go 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 

Well I can see her now with her headphones on 
Jumping up and down to her favourite song 
She used to love to party, she used to wanna go 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 

Take a look at the bridegroom smiling pleased as pie 
Shaking hands all round with a glassy look in his eye 
He got a real good job and the shirt and tie is nice 
But I remember a time when she would never even look at him twice 

Well I can see her now drinking with the boys 
Breaking their hearts like they were toys 
She used to love to party, she used to love to go 
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll 

Status Quo - I know you're leaving

You say you're tired of this love affair 
It brings you down close to despair 
Our love has fallen apart at the seems 
I was too taken, lived in a dream 
All I want is to be around you 
So I cry, yes it's all I can do 

I know you're leaving but I can't understand 
Why what we have must come to an end 
Somebody tell me what can I do? 
I know you're leaving but I still love you. 

You used to hold me, hold me so strong 
I never thought we could ever go wrong 
Had no intention to fence you in 
Give you affection was my only aim 
I will learn not to be around you 
So I'll cry, yes it's all I can do 

I know you're leaving but I can't understand 
Why what we have must come to an end 
Somebody tell me what can I do? 
I know you're leaving but I still love you. 

It's an emptiness you leave behind 
Broken memories and fate to remind me 
What's been done can't be turned around 
And hope has become misery 

I know you're leaving but I can't understand 
Why what we have must come to an end 
Somebody tell me what can I do? 
I know you're leaving but I ... 

I know you're leaving but I can't understand 
Why what we have must come to an end 
Somebody tell me what can I do? 
I know you're leaving but I still love you 

I know you're leaving, this time it's goodbye 
Baby but I still love you 
I know you're leaving, this time it's goodbye 
Baby but I still love you 
I know you're leaving, this time it's goodbye 
Baby but I still love you 

Status Quo - I love Rock & Roll

When I'm playing my old guitar 
I know what I'm living for 
'Cos that's all I wanna do 
Keep right on rocking you 

I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll 

Bye Bye Johnny, I'm All Shook Up 
Bebpoalula, Rock Around The Clock 
You may or may not know 
But you'll never rock alone 

I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 

And I'm a ready teddy ready to rock 
And I'm a ready teddy ready to roll 
Come on let's shout it out aloud 
I love rock and roll 

I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 
I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 

I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 
I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll 

I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 
I love rock and roll, in my heart and in my soul 
I love rocking you, I love rock and roll, yes I do 

Status Quo - I saw the light

You made me love you, now I can't say goodbye 
You're way above me, but I'll never know why 
When I turn left and then you turn right 
And you say you're right, and you're wrong 
I know you're wrong 

Oh, I saw the light in you 
There wasn't much that I could do 
Oh, I saw the light in you 
I saw the light 

You made me like you, and now like you I am 
I try to stay me, but I don't know if I can 
Oh, when I say it's black and you say it's white 
And I say it's black and you're wrong 
I know you're wrong 

'Cos I saw the light in you 
There wasn't much that I could do 
Oh, I saw the light in you 
I saw the light 

Standing on the platform watching all the trains go past 
Keep on trying to catch one but you know they're much too fast 
I never seem to make it but I know the reason why 
I need to, need to, need to, need to get away 

You made me love you, now I can't say goodbye 
You're way above me but I'll never know why 
Oh, when I say it's black and you say it's white 
And I say it's right and you're wrong 
I know you're wrong 

Oh, I saw the light in you 
There wasn't much that I could do 
Oh, I saw the light in you 
I saw the light 
Oh, I saw the light with you 
There wasn't much that I could do 
Oh, I saw the light in you 
I saw the light 
Oh, I saw the light in you... 

Status Quo - I should have known

I found out what I wanted, I found out when I needed to 
You thought me kind-a-hearted, I heard that when I wanted you 
Being wrong isn't easy, right's another way 
Being wrong isn't easy, right's another way 

A-when you want me, just think like you're ready to 
Like me when I want to, why me does it have to be? 
Everyone tried to tell me, right's another way 
Everyone tried to tell me, right's another way 

Trust me to fall apart, trust you to know 
Just you and no-one else, just me alone 
Why did it have to be? I should have known 
Oh I should have known 

I can't tell, did you mean it? Did you mean what I think you did? 
I won't give less you need it, just a bit could be overhead 
I won't wait for a minute, can't hesitate 
I won't wait for a minute, can't hesitate 

Trust me to fall apart, trust you to know 
Just you and no-one else, just me alone 
Why did it have to be? I should have known 
Oh I should have known 

Status Quo - I want it

I want it girl, I want all your loving 
I want every part of you, you know 
I need a girl, s-so you keep on teasing 
You know I want it from you 

Tell her boys then 
I want it, all your love - Oh yeah, it's true 
I want it, all your love - Just give it to me girl 
I want it, all your love - Don't tease me know 
I want it, all your love - I want it girl, come on 

You tease me girl, you know I need that something 
You keep me waiting too long, come on 
And please me girl, yeah yeah, I got that feeling

Status Quo - I want the world to know

Slippin' and a-slidin', rockin' and a-riding 
Rollin' back to Lady Jane 
And Can't you see the sun is shinin' 
Temperature's a-risin' 
Rood'n'doodee what's your name? 

Seven-forty-seven flying over heaven 
You could be a millionaire 
And you could be a Rockerfeller 
Any kind of weather 
Everybody Everywhere 

I wanna be your brother, I wanna be your friend 
I wanna be your brother and shake you by the hand 

Come on everybody, gonna have a party 
Rock it all over the world 
Come on and shake it all over 
Over and over 
Down Down, come on and spread the word 

I wanna be your brother, I wanna be your friend 
I wanna be your brother and shake you by the hand 
Shake it shake it shake it, I want the world to know 
I wanna be your brother, I wanna be your friend 
I wanna be your brother and shake you by the hand 
Shake it shake it shake it, I want the world to know 
I wanna be your brother, I want the world to know 

Status Quo - I who have nothing

I, I who have nothing 
I, I who have no-one 
Adore you and want you so 
I'm just a no-one with nothing to give you, but oh 
I love you 

He'll, he'll buy you diamonds 
Bright sparkling diamonds 
But believe me, hear what I say 
That he can give you the world, but he'll never love you the way 
I love you 

He can take you any place you want 
To fancy clubs and restaurants 
But I can only watch you with 
My nose pressed up against the window pane 
Yeah, you know that you are loved 

But I, I who have nothing 
I, I who have no-one 
Must watch you go dancing by 
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else, when darling, 'tis I 
Who loves you 

I, I who have nothing 
I, I who have no-one 
Must watch you go dancing by 
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else, when darling,'tis I 
Who loves you 

(Spoken) I need you girl, I have nothing without you 
I love you girl, I am just nothing without you 

Status Quo - I'm giving up my worryin'

I'm giving up my worrying 
It doesn't fit my way 
I've had enough of worrying 
And messing up my day 

Somebody made me laugh today, it changed the way I am 
He terrorised the neighbourhood so I can take the blame 
If I take a look, just a little look, I know I'll be too late 
So shall I take a look, 'cos every time I look 
Little, little, just a little late 

I'm giving up my worrying 
It doesn't fit my way 
I've had enough of worrying 
And messing up my day 

It doesn't help me listening to everything I hear 
It doesn't make no difference, it never is too clear 

I saw a lookalike today, he was a lot to see 
He was familiar anyway, he looked a lot like me 
Shall I take a look, just a little look, it isn't very clear 
Oh every time I look, if I take a look 
Little, little, just a little late 

I'm giving up my worrying 
It doesn't fit my way 
I've had enough of worrying 
And messing up my day 

It doesn't help me listening to everything I hear 
It doesn't make no difference, it never is too clear 

I'm giving up my worrying 
I've had enough of worrying 
I'm giving up my worrying 
I've had enough of worrying 
I'm giving up my worrying 
I've had enough of worrying 

Status Quo - Ice in the sun

I'm not a little boy, I've lived alone and never loved so more 
But when she touches me I'm on the way, I'm underneath the floor 

Like ice in the sun I melt away 
Whenever she comes I melt away 
Like in in the sun I melt away 

I sit down in a chair and read a book as if I couldn't there 
But she is in a room and I must look I see her everywhere 

Like ice in the sun I melt away 
Whenever she comes I melt away 
Like in in the sun I melt away 

She opens up her eyes as if to speak 
She looks at me and I am weak 
Her eyes they seem much bigger than before 
I cannot think anymore 

Like ice in the sun I melt away 
Whenever she comes I melt away 
Like in in the sun I melt away 

Like ice in the sun I melt away 
Whenever she comes I melt away 
Like ice in the sun I melt away 

Status Quo - In my chair

I saw her talking, now 
My ears were burning 
Her feet started walking, now 
They started turning 
My eyes were half open 
But she didn't see me there 
We ran along walking 'cross the rooftops in my chair 

Had a car in my pocket 
And we started moving 
A man in a helmet 
Said, what's that you're using 
My eyes were half open 
But we didn't see him there 
Put the car back in my pocket 
And I'm still here in my chair 

My teeth were laughing, now 
We couldn't stop smiling 
We danced to the Mystery Band 
Without even trying 
My eyes were half open 
But we didn't see them there 
We ran along walking 'cross the rooftops in my chair 

Status Quo - In your eyes

Doesn't she look so well 
With her long black hair and (???) she can tell 
Doesn't she know so well 
She can cast a spell with that look of heaven 
In her eyes, in her eyes 
In your eyes, your eyes 

Now I can't get to sleep 
I dream and dream all the day through 
Doesn't seem to matter though 
Doesn't seem to worry me 
I can't get to sleep 
I dream and dream, honest I do 
Honest I do, dream of you 

Couln't we be away 
On a different day could be so unusual 
Couldn't we try to be 
What the others say, what they think they see there 
In your eyes, in your eyes 
In your eyes, your eyes 

Now I have been a fool 
I've been in love, haven't we all 
Everybody does it though 
Every time we keep going back again 
I've made that mistake 
I dream and dream honest I do 
Honest I do dream of you 

Wouldn't it feel the same 
Is it just a game that we play from time to time 
Wouldn't I feel so good 
If I understood what I see is written there 
In your eyes, in your eyes 
In your eyes, your eyes 

Now when towards the end 
I'm feeling blue and everything's wrong 
Doesn't matter at the time 
Doesn't matter this time anyway 
I can't get to sleep 
I dream and dream, honest I do 
Honest I do dream, oh I can't get to sleep 
I dream and dream, honest I do 
Honest I do dream of you 

Status Quo - Invitation

I got an invitation from a girl I used to know back home 
It was an invitation asking me to telephone 
She said, it's getting lonely here 
And I've been gone for close a year 
I took the first flight out to meet the girl I used to know back home 

She met me off the flight, a million dollars in her long red gown 
With a man in a black hat just to drive us back to town 
Now the faces all look the same 
And all the places have the same old names 
But in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home 
Yes, in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home 

Maybe it's true that I go on and on and on 
Maybe it's true that I'm the lonely one alone 
What can I say to you, what can I say to you? 
Yes, in a year you've changed just like the girl I used to know back home 

It took another year before I started getting itchy toes 

And then I had to leave, but that's the way the story goes 
Well I reckon if she'd made me stay 
I'd never live to see another day 
I took the first flight out and left the girl I used to know back home 

Maybe it's true that I go on and on and on 
Maybe it's true that I'm the lonely one alone 
What can I say to you, what can I say to you? 
I took the first flight out and left the girl I used to know back home 
Back home, I left the girl back home 
I left the girl back home 
I left the girl back home 

Status Quo - Is it really me/Gotta go home

Baby, the feeling that you give to me 
Maybe I'm thinking your so good to me 
Is it really, really me? 
Is it really, really me? 

Baby, the feeling, I can't stand the joy 
Spare me some feeling if I wake up a boy 
Is it really, really me? 
Is it really, really me? 

Baby, I'm feeling like a fire, I am 
Am I still teething or could I be a man? 
Is it? Is it? 
Is it really, really me? 
Is it really, really me? 

I gotta get along 'cos it's a long, long ride now 
I've been away too long, I gotta get on home now 
I'm getting far too old to know my dream of fortune 
But the time is flowing now, I know what I must do 

I gotta go home, I gotta go home 
I gotta go home to ease my mind 
I gotta go home, I gotta go home 
I gotta go home to ease my mind 

I gotta get along 'cos it's a long, long ride now 
I've been away too long, I gotta get on home now 
I'm getting far too old to know my dream of fortune 
But the time is flowing now, I know what I must do 

I gotta go home, I gotta go home 
I gotta go home to ease my mind 
I gotta go home, I gotta go home 
I gotta go home to ease my mind 

Status Quo - Is there a better way

Is there a better way? Is there a better way? 
Is there a better way ahead or just another day? 
There's got to be a way to make a better day 
I'm gonna find away to make a better day 
You're never gonna be the one to hold me down 
You're never gonna be the one to hold me down 
There never was a better way with you around 

No matter what I do, do what you got to do 
But do it now because the time is running out on you 
You've got to find a way to make a better day 
You've got to live and learn to fight another day 
I'm never gonna be the one who put you down 
I'm never gonna be the one who put you down 
You never know there may be someone in the crowd 
There may be someone in the crowd 

Is there a better way? Is there a better way? 
Is there a better way ahead or just another day? 
Maybe you'll never know a better way to go 
I've got a feeling you don't really want to know 
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down 
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down 
There never was a better way with you around 
There never was a better way 

I'll never let you be the one to hold me down 
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down 
There never was a better way with you around 
There never was a better way 

Status Quo - Jam side down

what's a boy to do, when fate is cruel? 
keep on keepin' on try to bend the rules 
i'll do anything to find a way to your heart 

i got a rabbit's foot but luck don't come 
got my fingers crossed and they go numb, 
i can't hold my breath and wish for you 
i need a miracle to make it true 

life is hard, i need a remedy 
for the way i feel 
my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

i was sweet on you that's how i felt 
got a butter heart, you made it melt 
like a bg eyed kid in a candy store 
i had a little sugar now want some more 

life is hard, i need a remedy 
for the way i feel 
my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

you are my destiny you 
bring out the best in me you 
you made me feel so lucky 
so lucky to have you 
and i need you 
yeh i need you 

life is hard, i need a remedy 
for the way i feel 
my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

life is hard, i need a remedy 
for the way i feel 
my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

my bread keeps landing jam side down 
say you'll be there to spread love around 

Status Quo - Jealousy

Just jealousy, my jealousy 
Is what you see doing me 
Jealous of me, such jealousy 
It shouldn't be - leave me alone 

Time is running out, out runs the time 
I waste it on my own 
But don't think I'm alone 
Oh no, not again, I won't reply 
I can't stay on the phone 
I'll see you back at home 
I really did think that problem was solved 
But it is not 

Just jealousy, my jealousy 
Is what you see doing me 
Jealous of me, such jealousy 
It shouldn't be - leave me alone 

I've got another one, listen to me 
And don't get all hung on 
To things I have done wrong 
Oh no, not again, I won't reply 
It's only how I feel 
It sometimes seems unreal 
But everyone gets there once in a while 
Are you wishing? 

Just jealousy, my jealousy 
Is what you see doing me 
Jealous of me, such jealousy 
It shouldn't be - leave me alone 
Just jealousy, my jealousy 
Is what you see doing me 
Jealous of me, such jealousy 
It shouldn't be - leave me alone .... 

Status Quo - Johnny and Mary

Johnny's always running around trying to find certainty 
He needs all the world to confirm that he ain't lonely 
Mary counts the walls 
Knows he tires easily 

Johnny thinks the world would be right if it would buy truth for him 
Mary says he changes his mind more than a woman 
But she made her bed 
Even when the chance was slim 

Johnny says he's willing to learn when he decides he's a fool 
Johnny says he'll live anywhere when he has time to 
Mary combs her hair 
Says he should be used to it 

Mary always hedges her bets, she never knows what to think 
She says he's still acting like he's being discovered 
Scared that he'll be caught 
Without a second thought 

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath trying to talk sense to her 
Mary says he's lacking a real sense of proportion 
So she combs her hair 
Knows he tires easily 

Johnny's always running around trying to find certainty 
He needs all the world to confirm that he ain't lonely 
Mary counts the walls 
Says he should be used to it 

Status Quo - Josie

In view of the fact that there's a rumour going round 
I feel that I'd better state my case 
The problem is the misunderstandings that surround 
Our latest excursions into space 

Why, you may ask, do I still try 
And penetrate beyond the endless sky 
Up high 

Let me look into your eyes Josie 
Count the stars along the Milky Way 
I won't leave you, not tonight Josie 
If you'll try to love me, try to love me 
Show me you do 
The way that I love you 

In spite of the difficulties met with at the start 
The probe will be carried out as planned 
The problem is now the big question of the human heart 
And what kind of stress it can withstand 

Where, you may ask, will all this end? 
Well I can't say I really comprehend. 

Let me look into your eyes Josie 
Count the stars along the Milky Way 
I won't leave you, not tonight Josie 
If you'll try to love me, try to love me 
Show me you do 
The way that I love you 

When I look into your eyes Josie 
The world of man is very far away 
Stay with me and let me hear you say 
That you'll try to love me, try to love me 
Show me you do 
The way that I love you 

Status Quo - Juniors wailing

Love me baby, love me when I'm down 
I said love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh you gotta love me baby 
'Cos there's no use hanging around 

I said put your arms around me like a sunbeam round the sun 
I said put your arms around me like a sunbeam round the sun 
Yeah, you gotta love me woman 
'Cos my life has just begun 

Love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh, love, love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh you gotta love me baby 
'Cos there's no use hanging around 

Put your arms around me like a sunbeam round the sun 
Mmm, put your arms around me like a sunbeam round the sun 
Yeah, you gotta love me woman 
'Cos my life has just begun 

Love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh, love, love, love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh you gotta love me baby 
'Cos there's no use hanging around, yeah 

Love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Love me baby, love me when I'm down 
Oh you gotta love me baby 
'Cos there's no use hanging around 

Status Quo - Just take me

I am just a poor man, got nowhere to go, 
All my leaves have fallen and left me all alone. 
If I were a rich man, if I were a king, 
I would give you all I have, I'd give you everything, if you'd just take me, just take me now, if you'd just take me. 

Never seen my daddy, died when I was two, 
Mamma did the best she could taught me all she knew. Said that love was everything, tears came to her eyes, never know the meaning, now I realise love is all you need, all you need now 
If you just take me. 

I'm trying hard to get you, I'm not the only one, 
I've never had a big car, but I'm not on the run. 
If love has got a meaning, see it in my eyes, 
If you see the beginning, then you'll realise. 
Love is all you need, all you need now if you take me. 

Just take me, just take me now, 
Won't you just take me. 

Status Quo - Keep 'em coming

Keep 'em coming, nose to tail 
Keep 'em coming, love for sale 
Alloy spokes, leather trim 
Walnut dash looks good on him 
Twenty-four valves set to sing 

Keep 'em coming, furry dice 
Keep 'em coming, well ain't that nice 
Auto sunroof, heated seat 
Air conditioned naturally 
About as cool as I can be 

Keep 'em coming, keep 'em coming 

Cruise control the motorway 
It's the freedom that I love 
And I want to sail, I want to sail 
Away, away, away 
Away, away, away 

Keep 'em coming, nodding dog 
Keep 'em coming, I love that smog 
Longer hoods, wider boots 
Sell me one that loops the loop 
Before we all go down the tubes 

Keep 'em coming, knock 'em out 
Keep 'em coming, cruise control the motorway 
It's the freedom that I love 
And I want to sail, I want to sail 
Away, away, away 
Away, away, away 

Status Quo - Keep me guessing

I've been told a rumour that's been going round 
You got a reputation and it won't lay down 
But while you're feelin' the way that you do 
You can keep me guessing like I keep on guessing 'bout you 

I keep on hearing you done me wrong 
Don't make no difference, it won't be long 
I'll play your games, you're soon gonna see 
You can fool yourself, you can fool yourself 
You can fool yourself, oh no, no you can't fool me. 

Oh, oh, I know what you want 
I know what you want and that's all right, baby 
Oh, Oh, I know what you want 
I know what you want, you give it all night 

Oh, oh, I know what you want 
I know what you want and that's all right, baby 
Oh, Oh, I know what you want 
I know what you want, you give it all night 

Your mama gave you some good advice 
If you love this man then you won't look twice 
Baby, and if you're feeling the way that you do 
Gonna keep me guessing, gonna keep me guessing, 
Gonna keep me guessing like I keep on guessing 'bout you 

Gonna keep me guessing 
Gonna keep me guessing 

Status Quo - Lakky lady

Ah well, I’ve got a woman and I love, love her so 
She is big, fat and lazy but I want you all to know 
That I love her and I need that woman so 
She is my little lady and I’m glad that you all know 

When she wakes in the morning and her figure tells no lies 
My eyesight is broken when the light shines on her thighs 
But I love her and I need that woman so 
Oh how can I tell you what I’d do if she should go 

And I love her and I need that woman so 
Oh well how can I tell you what I would do if she should go 

Ah well she is so lazy, how she moves I’ll never know 
She was so different eleven years ago 
But I love her and I need that woman so 
She’s a big lakky lady but I love that woman so 

Status Quo - Late last night

I heard you come home late last night 
You moved so quietly 
Key in the door, light up the stairs 
But were you thinking of me? 
Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna harm you 
I just wanna feel all right 
So how can I ask you who you were with last night? 

I listened to all your promises 
And lived with all those lies 
Pretending that I’m the only one 
When I’ve seen it in your eyes 
Maybe I need you, maybe it ain’t true 
Maybe it’s still all right 
So how can I ask you who you were with last night? 
How can I ask you who you were with last night? 

It’s down to the feeling you get when you’re with someone who really matters 
It’s down to the love that you can show someone who really cares 
It’s not up to you, it’s not up to me 
Takes two people to agree 
It’s down to the feeling you get when you’re with someone who really matters 

Lately you and I ain’t talked the way that lovers do 
Should accept the fact that maybe you’ve found someoe new 
If I could lose you, if I could hug you 
I’d still like to feel all right 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with last night 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with last night 
I wouldn’t ask you who you were with last night 

Status Quo - Laticia

Her name was Laticia 
Best looking girl in town 

Well she’s a fine, fine, fine girl 
Yes she’s a fine, fine, fine girl 

Laticia works only by night 
Doing things far from right 
Every time I see her I turn away 
I can’t understand her being this way 

Laticia’s a girl most men adore 
And some, she knows what they’re looking for 
If they play nice she gives all what they want 
Surely she must know this can’t go on 

One day she’ll realise 
There’s ways to lead a better life 
When years have flown and passed her by 
There’ll be tears streaming from her eyes 
Too late, too long to wait 

This girl called Laticia 
Laticia, Laticia, Laticia 

She’s a fine, fine, fine girl 
Yes she’s a fine, fine, fine girl 

Laticia works only by night 
Only back roads, only dim lights 
All her looks of beauty they don’t mean a thing 
A lovely girl, wasted in sin 
Laticia 

Status Quo - Lazy poker blues

Me and my baby don’t do nothing but laze around all day long 
Me and my baby don’t do nothing but laze around all day long 
Yeah, when I’m with my baby 
Lazy pokin’ going on 

She put some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot 
She put some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot 
Yeah, when I’m with my baby 
Lazy pokin’ going on 

She put some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot 
She put some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot 
Yeah, when I’m with my baby 
Lazy pokin’ going 

Status Quo - Lean machine

When I see you in the morning 
As the sky is turning light 
Standing there in all your glory 
Oh you’re looking so right 
You move in sunbeams from the shadows 
With your never-ending lines 
You’re standing there so proud before me 
How your body always shines 

Well you’re a lean machine 
Oh do you know what I mean? 
You’re a lean machine 
And I love you 

You always take what you’re given 
As you live with me today 
And you give me what I’m taking 
As we’re going on our way 

‘Cos you’re a lean machine 
Oh do you know what I mean? 
You’re a lean machine 
And I love you 

We get together on the outside 
On the outside looking in 
Taking chances on the down side 
On the outside we can win 

You’re a lean machine 
Do you know what I mean? 
You’re a lean machine 
And I love you 
You’re a lean machine 
Oh do you know what I mean? 
‘Cos you’re a lean machine 
And I love you 
You’re a lean machine 
Oh do you know what I mean? 
You’re a lean machine 
And I love you 

Status Quo - Let me fly

I’ve been so lonely, I can’t find any way 
So long since I lost my way 
I’ve got a feeling you’re gonna run away anyday 
Why does it always seem to be me? 

So let me fly, let me fly like a bird in the sky 
Let me fly away 
I wanna climb really high all the time in the sky 
Wanna stay up there all day 
So let me fly, let me fly like a bird in the sky 
Let me fly, getting away 
Laugh at the day, let me fly, fly, fly away 

You say you’re all right, you don’t care anyway 
I’m listening, you’re trying to say 
You think I’m crazy, you’re thinking you’ve got everything right 
But you’re fooling no-one else but yourself 

So let me fly, let me fly like a bird in the sky 
Let me fly away 
I wanna climb really high all the time in the sky 
Wanna stay up there all day 
Oh let me fly, let me fly like a bird in the sky 
Let me fly, getting away 
Laugh at the day, let me fly, fly, fly away 

If you get lonely, you can’t get along by yourself 
You’re finding you’re needing me 
Don’t wait forever for me to come a-following you 
I’ll wait here, you come back by yourself 

And we can fly, we can fly like a bird in the sky 
We can fly away 
And we can climb really high all the time in the sky 
Gonna stay up there all day 
Oh let me fly, let me fly like a bird in the sky 
Let me fly, getting away 
Laugh at the day, let me fly, fly, fly away 

Status Quo - Let's ride

It’s such a very long time ago 
And we were riding down the dusty road 
I took a turn around the dusty track 
And said I’m never ever coming back 
Aw, but baby come and ride with me 
Come on and ride like it used to be 
I know you like the way it feels 
Riding high on a pair of wheels 

Let’s ride, let’s ride, let’s ride 
Take me up and won’t you come on, let’s ride 

It took me twenty-five thousand miles 
A new starter and a pair of tyres 
When at last I realised the end 
Was coming up around the bend 
I turned around and scraped my boots 
And headed back again towards my roots 
The wind was blowing through my hair 
And the sun was shining everywhere 

Let’s ride, let’s ride, let’s ride 
Take me up and won’t you come on, let’s ride 

A little loving goes a long, long way 
And it called me back again 
Now I know which way to go 
I’m never ever gonna ride alone 
So baby come and ride with me 
Come on and ride like it used to be 
I know you like the way it feels 
Ridng high upon a pair of wheels 

Let’s ride, let’s ride, let’s ride 
Take me up and won’t you come on, let’s ride 
Let’s ride, let’s ride, let’s ride 
Take me up and won’t you come on, let’s ride 

Status Quo - Lets work together

Together we stand, divided we fall 
Come on now people let’s get on the ball 
And work together, come on, come on 
Let’s work together, now, now people 
‘Cos together we will stand every boy, every girl and man 

Before when things go wrong as they sometimes will 
And the world that you’re travelling stays all uphill 
Let’s work together, come on, come on 
Let’s work together, now, now people 
You know together we will stand every boy, girl, woman and man 

Oh well now, two or three minutes, two or three hours 
What does it matter now in this life of ours? 
Let’s work together, come on, come on 
Let’s work together, now, now people 
‘Cos together we will stand every boy, every woman and man 

Oh well, make someone happy, make someone smile 
Let’s all work together and make life worthwhile 
Let’s work together, come on, come on 
Let’s work together, now, now people 
You know together we will stand every boy, girl, woman and man 

Because together we will stand every boy, girl, woman and man 
Well, together we will stand every boy, girl, woman and man 

Let’s work together, come on, come on, 
Let’s work together, come on, come on, 
Let’s work together, come on, come on, 
Let’s work together, come on, come on... 

Status Quo - Lies

I had another drink, I took another drink, 
And then I tried to crawl out the door. 
I had another smoke, I heard another joke, 
And then I couldn't take anymore. 
It didn#t chance a thing not any single thing, 
But someone tried to tell be for sure. 
I heard another voice that said I wasn't in a dream, I'd read a word or two about everything, 
I never new the way that I oughta hold on, 
They never told me a thing about it, 
I never did know a thing about it. 

And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, 
They won#t go away. 
And the times that I tried are the times 
That I find they won't show today. 
But you make me feel so good. 

I woke up after four, still lying on the floor, 
Waiting to be carried away, 
I woke up once again, a little laugh, pretend, 
Will things be any better today? 
It doesen't chance a scene it only chances me, 
Well someone tried to tell me I'm sure. 
I'm gonna hear a voice and know it isn't in a dream, I'm gonna read the lines and get a look between, I never knew the way that it oughta hold on, they never told me a thing about it, 
I never did know a thing about it. 

I'm going back to school, gonna chech the rules, 
And see if I get carried away. 
I'm going back again, I'm gonna try it again, 
Don't listen what the people might say. 
It doesen't chance a thing not any single thing, 
But someone tried to tell me for sure. 
I'm gonna hear a voice that said I wasn't in a dream, 
I gonna read the lines and get a look between, 
I never knew the way that I'd oughta hold on, 
They never told me a thing about it, 
I never did know a thing about it. 

Status Quo - Like a good girl

As I looked across to where she was before 
I didn’t have long to wait around here anymore 
We went to a place that I hadn’t seen before 
She worked me over then she went away 

Well, she looked to me like a good girl 
I played along like a fool 
I paid a lot just to find out 
She’s no exception to the rule 

As I carried on looking here and there 
I couldn’t believe she worked it out and it worked on me 
I guessed early on but it didn’t click inside 
She knew my weakness and she knew my name 

Well, she looked to me like a good girl 
I played along like a fool 
I paid a lot just to find out 
She’s no exception to the rule 

As I carried on looking here and there 
I couldn’t believe she worked it out and it worked on me 
We went to a place that I hadn’t seen before 
She worked me over then she went away 

Well, she looked to me like a good girl 
I played along like a fool 
I paid a lot just to find out 
She’s no exception to the rule 

Status Quo - Like a Zombie

Couldn’t see my funny side as far as I recall and it didn’t mean much to me 
Carried on messing round and getting lower every day 
And then a little while later looking for a way to get ahead of all the ups and downs 
On the road, back at home, it didn’t matter much to me 

Running round every corner, walk around every street 
Running round like a madman, run yourself off your feet 
Walk about like a zombie, running round like a freak 
Running round like a maniac, flipping out every week 

Well I just gotta get away as far as I can go and as long as I don’t see you there 
Turn around, look again, what is it happening to me? 
Well am I getting paranoid, or maybe superstition is making me feel this way 
Checking in, checking out, I seem to do it every day 

Running round every corner, walk around every street 
Running round like a madman, run yourself off your feet 
Walk about like a zombie, running round like a freak 
Running round like a maniac, flipping out every week 

Now I’ve been working on the road as long as I recall and it’s feeling like yesterday 
Giggling, travelling, and getting better every day 
Well I was getting paranoid, or maybe superstition was making me feel this way 
Checking in, checking out, I seem to do it every day 

Running round every corner, walk around every street 
Running round like a madman, run yourself off your feet 
Walk about like a zombie, running round like a freak 
Running round like a maniac, flipping out every week 
Running round every corner, walk around every street 
Running round like a madman, run yourself off your feet 
Walk about like a zombie, running round like a freak 
Running round like a maniac, flipping out every week 

Status Quo - Like it or not

Isn’t it more the way you do it than the way that you look? 
Isn’t it in the way you use it, not the lessons you took? 
Isn’t it time you started asking what goes on in your mind? 

You won’t take no for an answer 
Nobody could tell you your place 
They’d better not turn round and tell ya 
Even if it’s straight to your face 
I ain’t lonely but I’m happy if it makes you feel good 
But it’s no way, it’s a fool’s way, it’ll end up no good 

Isn’t it more the way you do it than the way that you look? 
Isn’t it in the way you use it, not the lessons you took? 
Isn’t it time you started asking what goes on in your mind? 
This is the way I want to do it whether you like it or not 
This is the way I gotta tell you and I ain’t gonna stop 
Baby I should have let you find it out, but in your own time 

So don’t be scared of the future 
Everything is looking real fine 
I think my way’s gonna suit ya 
But only if you’re gonna stay mine 
And you could do, and you should do, it’ll make you feel fine 
‘Cos the best way is the best way, and we’ll make it on time 

Well I’ve been really, really wondering am I losing my mind? 
Why do we do the things we shouldn’t do? We’d rather be fine 
We’re in a sticky situation and you really don’t mind. 
This is the way I want to do it whether you like it or not 
This is the way I gotta tell you and I ain’t gonna stop 
Baby I should have let you find it out, but in your own time 

And you could do, and you should do, it’ll make you feel fine 
‘Cos the best way is the best way, and we’ll make it on time 

Isn’t it more the way you do it than the way that you look? 
Isn’t it in the way you use it, not the lessons you took? 
Isn’t it time you started asking what goes on in your mind? 
This is the way I want to do it whether you like it or not 
This is the way I gotta tell you and I ain’t gonna stop 
We’re in a sticky situation and you really don’t mind 

Status Quo - Little dreamer

You’re a dreamer, a pretty little dreamer 
I couldn’t leave you, I really couldn’t leave you 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, I couldn’t beat the fever 

Just listen while I’m talking to you all night long 
Right or wrong, listen to me all night long 
I’m never gonna waste time crying all night long 
Right or wrong, I won’t be crying all night long 

You’re a dreamer, a pretty little dreamer 
I couldn’t leave you, I really couldn’t leave you 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, I couldn’t beat the fever 

You’re a dreamer, a pretty little dreamer 
I couldn’t leave you, I really couldn’t leave you 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, I couldn’t beat the fever 

I’ve waited long enough I reckon on my own 
Tried to phone, tried to phone but you’re not home 
I’m thinking while I try and reason what went wrong 
Something’s gone, ain’t no good in hanging on 

You’re a dreamer, a pretty little dreamer 
I couldn’t leave you, I really couldn’t leave you 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, the fever for the dreamer 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, the fever for the dreamer 
You didn’t gimme gimme time to beat the fever 
I’ve got the fever, a fever for the dreamer 

You didn’t gimme gimme 
You didn’t gimme gimme 
You didn’t gimme gimme 

Status Quo - Little lady

Well I saw my little lady walking down the street 
And I asked her, where you going to? 
Well I saw my little lady walking down the street 
She said she’d found somebody new 
Found myself all alone 
Ain’t no fun on your own 
Now I’m like a rolling stone 

So I met another lady and so many more 
Didn’t really know which way to go 
So I met another lady and so many more 
But no-one did I get to know 
Found myself all alone 
Ain’t no fun on your own 
Now I’m like a rolling stone 

Well I saw my little lady walking down the street 
Now you know where she was going to 
Well I saw my little lady walking down the street 
Now you know what I’ve been going through 
Found myself all alone 
Ain’t no fun on your own 
Living like a rolling stone 

I was like a rolling.... 
I was like a rolling stone 

Walking alone, a street with no phone 
Could I be younger most of the time? 
Doing her wrong, taking so long 
Should I do all things in my own time? 
May I be wiser, yes, than most men will ever be? 
May I be younger most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 

May I be wiser, yes, than most men will ever be? 
May I be younger most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 
Most of the time, most of the time 

Status Quo - Little me and you

I’ve seen a place in the valley 
Pinewood floor and roses round the door 
I’ll take you there if you’ll have me 
Maybe we could make it work 

We’ll hide away from the bad guys 
Who say yours true, not good enough for you 
I mix a mean tequila sunrise 
We could have a real good time 

I got a heart full of big love 
I got a head full of good thoughts 
I got a belly full of everybody 
Telling me what to do 
They better keep their noses clean 
I’d say they better not come between 
Little me and you, me and you 

We’ll take a dive undercover 
We’ll get by, just you and I 
We’ll take a drink and another 
And twist the night away 

I got a heart full of big love 
I got a head full of good thoughts 
I got a belly full of everybody 
Telling me what to do 
They better keep their noses clean 
I’d say they better not come between 
Little me and you, me and you 

Little me and you, well we go back 
Back to the schoolyard, that’s a fact 
The bestest times I ever had 
Just you and me and a sherbet dab 
They better keep their noses clean 
I’d say they better not come between 
Little me and you, me and you 

Me and you, now we go back 
Back to the schoolyard, that’s a fact 
The bestest times I’ve ever known 
You let me steal a kiss and then I walk you home 
I got a heart full of big love 
I got a head full of good thoughts 
I got a belly full of everybody 
Telling me what to do 
They better keep their noses clean 
I’d say they better not come between 
Little me and you, me and you 

Status Quo - Little Miss nothing

People all around they look at you, and I have seen them sneer 
But they don’t realise how much I need you, so let me make it very clear 
That you won’t have to worry just ‘cos your clothes are torn 

Your windows they need cleaning and the weeds are growing high 
But Little Miss Nothing I won’t pass you by 

You have no daddy to tell your troubles to, but don’t you worry I’ll share them with you 
We won’t worry about the stormy weather, if you have troubles we’ll share them together 
Your house is nearly falling, but I’ll change all that for you 

Your windows they need cleaning and the weeds are growing high 
But Little Miss Nothing I won’t pass you by 
Now I will clean your windows, cut the weeds from high to low 
I will mend your rooftops, and the taps again will flow 
But Little Miss Nothing I won’t let you go 

Status Quo - Little white lies

You were not home last night 
When I called from the hotel 
I tried to get you on the line 
Or were you there with someone 
And you couldn’t tell me? 
Just say it’s true and I’ll be fine 

Why, why, why 
Are you telling me those little white lies? 
I won’t buy anymore 
Why, why, why 
If you keep telling little white lies 
I won’t try anymore 

It’s been a long time now 
Since we were close together 
I see the distance in your eyes 
There’s something wrong 
And all you gotta do is tell me 
Just shout it out and I’ll survive 

Why, why, why 
Are you telling me those little white lies? 
I won’t buy anymore 
Why, why, why 
If you keep telling little white lies 
I won’t try anymore 

Now you must think that I believe 
Every little lie you weave 
So let me make it clear 
‘Cos I don’t want to hear no more 

Why, why, why 
Are you telling me those little white lies? 
I won’t buy anymore 
Why, why, why 
If you keep telling little white lies 
I won’t try anymore 
You’re telling me little white lies 
Little white lies 

Status Quo - Living on an island

Easy when you're number 1, 
Everybody say your having fun. 
Smiling from the public eye, 
When your aby say's you wanna die. 

Living on an island, 
Looking at another lie, 
Waiting for my fried to come, 
And we'll get high. 

Here we got a real nice place 
we gonna be there soon. 
I just wanna see his face, 
I'm getting lonely in my empty room. 

Passin' time away in the blue skies, 
Thinking of the smile in her eyes, 
Easy, it's easy. 

Living on an island, 
Oh noy we're having fun. 
Living on an island, 
Thinking about the things I've done. 

Waiting for my friend to come and we'll get high. 
We're gonna get high, 
Gonna touch the sky. 

Status Quo - Lonely

I don’t need you by my side 
I don’t need you, baby I’ve lied 
‘Cos I’m lonely, lonely as I can be 
My one and only, changing the mood in me. 

I can’t see you anymore 
I don’t feel you as before 
And I’m lonely, lonely as I can be 
And it’s only because you’re never here with me. 

Trying, oh-oh-oh I’m trying 
Sighing, woh-oh-oh you’ve got to believe me 

Because I’m lonely tonight 
Something ain’t right 
Saving a place for you by my side 
But you’re still away 
I don’t know what to do 
Because I’m lonely tonight 
And all that I need is you. 

I’m so lonely can’t you see? 
All alone all I see is me 
And I’m lonely, lonely as I can be 
I don’t wanna fight, come on home to me. 

Trying, oh-oh-oh I’m trying 
Sighing, woh-oh-oh you’ve gotta believe me 

Well I’m lonely tonight 
Something ain’t right 
Saving a place for you by my side 
I’m lonely tonight, what else is there to say? 
I’m lonely tonight, nothing is going my way 
‘Cos I’m lonely tonight, what else is there to say? 

Status Quo - Lonely night

Sitting by the window where I used to sit with you 
Playing all the old songs like we often used to do 
It was a lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely night 
It was a lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely night 
Went by a friend, he said, this is not a lie 
You’re back again, and I couldn’t laugh or cry 
‘Cos I never thought I’d see or hear you again 

Took me down to Sally’s where the band was playing loud 
Didn’t take me too long to find you there with a crowd 
It was a lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely night 
I had a lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time 
I tried to find something right for me to say 
Can’t you decide when you left me on that day 
‘Cos I never thought I’d see or hear you again 
Oh no, I never thought I’d see or hear you again 
No, I never thought I’d see or hear you again 

Oh no, I never thought I’d see or hear you again 
No, no, I never thought I’d see or hear you again 
No, I never thought I’d see or hear you again 
No, no, I never thought I’d see or hear you again...

Status Quo - Long legged girls

Take notice, I’m gonna talk straight to you 
When it comes to the ladies I sure know what to do 
‘Cos long legged girls are best to make a man out of you 
Long legged girls will pick you up and wet you through 

Your reputation is soon gonna take a dive 
But you’d better beieve it, you’ll never feel more alive 
‘Cos long legged girls are best to make a man out of you 
Long legged girls will pick you up and wet you through 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
Good for you 

Seventeen, forty-nine, any age is good for mine, I don’t give up 
‘Cos no lady is a lady, I’m S.T. crazy, legs win every time 
Those long legged girls are best to make a man out of you 
Long legged girls will pick you up and wet you through 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you

You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you 
You’re gonna know that she’s good for you

Status Quo - Long-legged Linda

Well, if you’re ever in Los Angeles and you’ve got time to spare 
Take a stroll up Sunset Boulevard, you’ll find the whisky there 
Gliding round the tables with wondrous, natural ease 
Serving two-star brandy is the body you have to see, all belonging to 

Long-legged Linda, she sure was worth the flight 
Long-legged Linda is playing the whisky tonight 

Oh, should boogie-woogie with Linda, though she dances like a dream 
She acts like she’s a thousand but she’s barely sweet sixteen 
She re-arranged my brain-cells and took control of me 
So if I miss my plain to Jacksonville you can guess where I’ll still be, I’ll be digging 

Long-legged Linda, she sure was worth the flight 
Long-legged Linda is playing the whisky tonight 

She re-arranged my brain-cells and took control of me 
So if I miss my plain to Jacksonville you can guess where I’ll still be, I’ll be digging 

Long-legged Linda, she sure was worth the flight 
Long-legged Linda is playing the whisky tonight 

Long-legged Linda, she sure was worth the flight 
Long-legged Linda is playing the whisky tonight 
Long-legged Linda, long-legged Linda 
Long-legged Linda, long-legged Linda.... 

Status Quo - Lover of the human race

We build it all, soon we’re scaling the wall together 
Hard hearts, simple minds, no thought of what 
We’re leaving behind forever more 
Oh well, I never really knew my place 
I was a nuclear waste of space 
Now I’m a lover of the human race 

Flat broke, empty house, ice cold, hand to mouth we’re getting 
Cracked up, gone to seed, blindly following politician’s lead 
Oh well, I never really knew my place 
I was a nuclear waste of space 
Now I’m a lover of the human race 

We need something more, always something more 
Still we know for sure show is nearly over now 
Party’s gonna come to an end 

Wishbone walking cane, black shades, looking to throw it all away 
Such well-meaning plans, hot hands messing around with DNA 
Oh well, I never really knew my place 
I was a nuclear waste of space 
Now I’m a lover of the human race 
A lover of the human race 
A lover of the human race 

We need something more, always something more 
Still we know for sure show is nearly over now 
Party’s gonna come to an end 
We need something more, always something more 
Still we know for sure show is nearly over now 
Party’s gonna come to an end 

Status Quo - Mad about the boy

She never has to worry and she never has to try 
She’s never in a hurry and I know the reason why 
She’s got her Daddie’s and her fingers in some pies 
She makes a double of a trouble with her lies 

She says, Oh I’m mad about the boy 
She says, Oh I’m mad about the boy 
She says, Oh I’m mad about the boy 

She’s always late to meet me and she always has to go 
To make another entry at another coolie show 
She is a dirty little lady but I know 
She only has to say the chorus and I go 

She says, Oh I’m mad about the boy 
She says, Oh-oh-oh I’m mad about the boy 
She says, Oh I’m mad about the boy 

Don’t tell me your troubles 
I’ve got troubles that would make you scream and shout 
Don’t tell me your troubles 
I’ve got troubles I will tell you all about 
No I don’t take a drink, no I won’t take a drink 
But I sure take some ups and some downs 
You makes me so weary 
You pick me up to put me down 
Don’t tell me your troubles 
I’ve got troubles that would make you scream and shout 
Don’t tell me your troubles 
I’ve got troubles I will tell you all about 
No I don’t take a drink, no I won’t take a drink 
But I sure take some ups and some downs 
You makes me so weary 
You pick it up and put me down 
You never have to worry and you never have to try 
You’re never in a hurry and I know the reason why 
You got your Daddie’s and your fingers in some pies 
You makes a double of a trouble with your lies 

You say, Oh I’m mad about the boy 
You say, Oh-oh-oh I’m mad about the boy 
You say, Oh I’m mad about the boy 

Status Quo - Magic

Never been very good at the things that I should do better 
And I’ve tied very hard just to see if I could forget ya 
But never, ever could we get back together 
I doubt it somehow, doubt it, yes I do 

Did you think that I would be so good that it wouldn’t matter 
And did you feel at the time that the weight of the time is greater 
It’s magic, magic, everything else has had it 
It’s magic, magic, everything that you do 
I’ve had it, magic, had that magical feeling 

Just call me and you know I’ll be there 
Don’t worry me you know I’ll be there 
No matter if it’s day or night, you 
Why worry if I say I’ll be there 

Did it all, looking back at the road, maybe lacked some measure 
Could it be, could it be you and me wanted just the pleasure, my pleasure 
But magic, magic, everything else has had it 
It’s magic, magic, everything that you do 
I’ve had it, magic, had that magical feeling 

Just call me and you know I’ll be there 
Don’t worry me you know I’ll be there 
Won’t matter if it’s day or night, you 
Why worry if I say I’ll be there 

Right or wrong, it’s still the same 
It’s a win-or-lose-it game 

Never been very good at the things that I should do better 
Could it be, could it be you and me wanted just the pleasure, my pleasure 
But magic, magic, everything else has had it 
It’s magic, magic, everything that you do 
I’ve had it, magic, had that magical feeling 
Magic, oh it’s magic, everything else has had it 
It’s magic, magic, everything that you do 
I’ve had it, magic, had that magical feeling 
Magic, oh it’s magic, everything else has had it.... 

Status Quo - Make me stay a little bit longer

When you look at me tell me what you see 
Do you see a man or just a jagged outline of one? 
Do you hear my words, or do they go straight through you? 

We get it together now and then 
But I can feel we won’t again 
Still I can’t stop this endless strain of you 

Listen to my words and talk the sadness that I bring you 
I’ll leave you today, ‘cos I am nothing to you 

Oh-oh make me stay a bit longer 
Make my heart and my body get stronger 
Make me stay, don’t send me away or I’ll be alone 
Make me stay a bit longer 
Make my heart and my body get stronger 
Make me stay, don’t send me away or I’ll be alone 

When you look at me tell me what you see 
Do you see a man or just a jagged outline of one? 
Do you hear my words, or do they go straight through you? 

Oh-oh make me stay a bit longer 
Make my heart and my body get stronger 
Make me stay, don’t send me away or I’ll be alone 
Make me stay a bit longer 
Make my heart and my body get stronger 
Make me stay, don’t send me away or I’ll be alone 

Status Quo - Making waves

When I was a young boy nothing much mattered to me 
You were a girl and a half and you saw yourself a mystery 
We got together for a while, I did everything you wanted me to 
Well I tried and you lied, I was left here back in the blue 

If you’re gonna run, are you gonna run today? 
Is it because I’m out on the road? 
You never had it good, you never had it anyway 
More more more making waves 

I was always right there when you wanted to play 
You were living in a scene from a dream every night and day 
And I never found a way to make it better for you 
Oh I tried and I tried but you left me back in the blue 

If you’re gonna run, are you gonna run today? 
Is it because I’m out on the road? 
You never had it good, you never had it anyway 
More more more making waves 

What you gonna do now? Nothing left, nothing to say 
Well I must have been a fool to believe in you anyway 
When I tried to find a way or something that I could do 
You threw it all in my face and you left me back in the blue 

If you’re gonna run, are you gonna run today? 
Is it because I’m out on the road? 
You never had it good, you never had it anyway 
More more more making waves 

If you’re gonna run, are you gonna run today? 
Is it because I’m out on the road? 
You never had it good, you never had it anyway 
More more more making waves 

Status Quo - Marguerita time

Captured my heart, captured my memory, 
Captured a time for me, I could see, 
A time for me was gonna be. 
Deep in my heart, deep in my memory, 
Deep in a part of me, heart of me, 
Meant to be history, 
Could it be that I'm still wandrin' 

I never knew what had happened to me, 
I didn't think it was true, 
That I could be just like anyone else, 
I'll take my chance with you. 

Picture a dream, picture a fantasy, 
Picture the mood of me, mystery, 
You and me a mystery. 
Lost in a dream, lost in a fantasy, 
Lost in what seemed to be, dreamsto me, 
Seemed to be, had to be, 
Couldn't find no other reason. 

Let's have a drink, it's marquerita time, 
It's marquerita time after nine, 
Summer time, anytime, 
You'll still always find me wandrin' 

Status Quo - Mean girl

Now I’m a sad one, and she was a bad one 
A mean, mean girl. 
I never had one as greedy as that one 
A mean, mean girl. 

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
I guess she’s not the kind that I was looking for 
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
She said I was the first but there were many more 

She was a big one, a met-at-a-gig once 
A mean, mean girl. 
I felt a sick one, she was a quick one 
A mean, mean girl. 

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
I guess she’s not the kind that I was looking for 
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
She said I was the first but there were many more 

Now I’m a sad one, and she was a bad one 
A mean, mean girl. 
I never had one as greedy as that one 
A mean, mean girl. 

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
She said I was the first but there were many more

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl 
She said I was the first but there were many more 

Status Quo - Mess of blue

I just got your letter baby, too bad you can't come home 
I swear I'm going crazy, sitting here all alone 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a-rolling down my face 
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace 

I ain't slept a wink since Sunday, I can't eat a thing all day 
And every day is just Blue Monday since you've been away 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 

Whoops there goes a tear drop, a rolling down my face 
And if you cry when you're alone it's surely no disgrace 

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind 
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 

I gotta get myself together before I lose my mind 
I'm gonna catch-a the next train going, and leave my blues behind 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 
Since you gone I got a mess of the blues 

Status Quo - Mountain lady

You’re climbing mountains in the sky 
You’re always looking for another high 
You’re looking so far ahead you’re looking away 
I’m taking you in, you’re taking me on 
Your smiling face never lets you down 
Where everyone who calls you friend remembers your name 
And everyone who called you friend will never again 

I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m feeling my way through the dark 
I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m taking a walk in your heart 

I’ve known the mountain ladies well 
They live a never-ending fairytale 
Where walking through another heart is all in a day 
They treat me well, they treat me nice 
They think that I’m gonna pay the price 
So now I’m gonna put you straight, you’re playing my game 

I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m feeling my way through the dark 
Oh, I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m taking a walk in your heart 

There’s never been a better reason at any time before 
‘Cos everything that we’ve been feeling is now an open door 
And as the snow is falling the mountains start to call 
But do I feel you walking in my heart? 

I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m feeling my way through the dark 
And I’m taking a walk in your heart 
Yeah, I’m taking a walk in your heart 
I’m feeling my way through the dark 
Yeah I’m taking a walk in your heart 

Status Quo - Mr. Minddetector

Hey Mr. Mind Detector 
Use your power to find what’s going on 
Hey Mr. Mind Detetctor 
Gonna blow my mind before too long 
Gotta find a way to learn infinity 
Gotta find a way to make you save my sanity 

Look into my mind an you will 
Find a world of magic mystical 
Images of endless beauty 
Hypnotising, motorising shadows 
Gotta find a way to let her know I’m here 
Gotta find a way to make her want to have me near 

Hey Mr. Mind Detector 
Use your power to find what’s going on 
Hey Mr. Mind Detetctor 
Gonna blow my mind before too long 
Gotta find a way to learn infinity 
Gotta find a way to make you save my sanity 

Status Quo - Mysteries from the ball

Running along on the side of the waterfront 
Someone is looking at me 
Trying to turn me around like an enemy 
Trying to turn me away 
Holding on tight to the side of reality 
Is it a vision I see? 
Leading me on to the pictures that I wanna see 

Fantasy lovingly restored to me 
Magic moments from the past, magic moments 
Mysteries from the ball 

Back at the table it’s getting too hot for me 
Ice is afloat on my wings 
Caught in the thunder and lightning of everything 
Caught in the everyday things 
Moving on up is the feeling inside of me 
Losing my grip on the floor 
Holding on tight to the hand that has given me more 

Fantasy lovingly restored to me 
Magic moments from the past, magic moments 
Mysteries from the ball 

Running along on the side of the waterfront 
Someone is looking at me 
Trying to turn me around like an enemy 
Trying to turn me away 
Moving on up is the feeling inside of me 
Losing my grip on the floor 
Holding on tight to the hand that is giving me more 

Fantasy lovingly restored to me 
Magic moments from the past, magic moments 
Mysteries from the ball lovingly restored to me 
Magic moments from the past lovingly restored to me 
Mysteries from the ball 

Status Quo - Mystery Song

I see that look on your face. 
I see that look on your face. 
I see that look on your face. 
I see that look on your face. 

The boys know what you're giving, 
You give the boys such a lot of fun. 
And by the way that you make a living, 
You got the boys all on the run. 
S.T's showing, you really got me going, 
Maybe you can give me a pice. 
I'h wanne try it, yeah i wanna buy it, 
Tell me would you treat me nice. 
Oh my legs are sking, oh my heart is aching 
I'm just feeling like a boy. 
Now I just can't slow down, gota get in go down, 
Have my share of pride and joy. 

Now I got your name and number, 
I like the look upon your face, 
And now I know that I wanna take you, 
Give me the time you can name the place. 
Call me honey, you can ake my money, 
Maybe we can make a deal. 
I really mean it, gotta get between it, 
Do you know the way I feel. 
Oh I'm feeling kind a like I gotta find, 
A way to make you understand. 
Oh I know you're lying, and you're love i'm buing. 
Oh I'm feeling like a man.

You give the boys such a lot of fun. 
And by the way that you make a living, 
You got the boys all on the run. 
S.T's ahowing, you gotta get them going,

If you really treat them nice. 
But I'd trather take you, show that I can make you, good enough for just one man. 
Oh I'm feeling kind a like I gotta find away to make you understand. 

Status Quo - Name of the game

She drank my money then she blew me out 
When I was mad for her she blew me out 
She’s in the club and she’s accusing me 
Of all the men she is accusing me 

Oh, I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
She never let me get round to it 
I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
We never even got down to it 

It’s the name of the game for me 
It’s always the same for me 
It’s the name of the game for me 
Can Trinity set me free ? 
‘Cause taking the blame 
Is the name of the game for me 
They know it’s a shame 
They never explain, oh taking the blame 
Is the name of the game for me 

Somebody pour another glass of champagne 
Before they come to t-t-take me away 
The F.B.I. and C.I.A. they say 
I shot the sheriff and I shot him today 

Oh, but I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
They know they’re making too much of it 
I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
I didn’t even do the deputy in 

Here comes the judge outside a bottle of gin 
He ain’t too happy with the way that I’ve been 
They locked me down, down in a hole in the ground 
And then they swallowed ev’ry key in the town 

Oh, I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
I think they’re making too much of it 
I didn’t do it, I did not do it 
I say they’re making too much of it 

Status Quo - Nanana

Writing songs that I think sound so strange 
Writing words that I feel I should change 
It’s all right if they sound just like other songs 
My guitar strums along just the same 
If this song’s underlined with my name 

Nanana na nana na na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na 

Playing games that I think may be wrong 
Making sounds that can go on and on 
It’s all right if you stay right on to the end 
If my song could’ve been just a bore 
Then I hope you may come back for more 

Nanana na nana na na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na na 
Nanana na nana na na na na na... 

Status Quo - Need your love

I need your love every day 
I need your love, need your love every day 
I need your love, need your love, need your love 
I need your love, need your love every day 

I, I need your love 
I, I see your love 
And now I’m here to take it 
I’m glad I’ve had your love 
It’s not the greatest love 
But it’s alright with me, alright with me 

I need your love every day 
I need your love, need your love every day 
I need your love every day 
I need your love, need your love, need your love 

My nights were getting longer 
My dreams were getting old 
I wasn’t getting younger 
My bed was getting cold 
But it’s all far behind me 
I’m a really satisfied man 

My nights were getting longer 
My dreams were getting old 
I wasn’t getting younger 
My bed was getting cold 
But it’s all far behind me 
I’m a really satisfied man 

I, I need your love 
I, I see your love 
And now I’m here to take it 
I’m glad I’ve had your love 
It’s not the greatest love 
But it’s alright for me, alright for me 

Status Quo - Neighbor neighbour

You’re so unrespecting 
You’re interfering with my life 

Day and night, all the time, leave me alone 

Neighbour neighbour don’t you worry what goes on in my home 
You’re always looking for something to gossip about 
You run around from door to door 
Rollin’ your mouth about things you don’t know 
Neighbour neighbour don’t you worry what goes on in my home 
Just leave me alone 

Neighbour neighbour don’t worry how I treat my wife 
You tell everybody we fuss and fight every night, well it ain’t right 
You’ve got your troubles, my troubles too 
Something bad’s gonna happen to you 
Neighbour neighbour don’t worry what goes on in my home 
Just leave me alone 

Day and night, all the time, yeah 

Neighbour neighbour don’t worry who knocks on my front door 
Walking and talking and pacing all over the floor 
Peeping, sleeping, through the hall 
Keeping your big ears glued to my wall 
Neighbour neighbour don’t worry what goes on in my home 
You know it’s true 

You’re interfering with my life, leave me alone neighbour 
Leave me alone, you go your way and I’ll go mine 

You’re so unrespecting 

Status Quo - Nightride

Dreaming, going on a night ride 
Hoping it’s gonna be the right ride 
Feeling so well, I’m in tune, can you tell that I’m grooving? 
Can’t you tell I’m in tune, and I’m moving so much closer to you 

Leaning, hoping for a straight line 
Meaning, hoping for the right rhyme 
I’m in tune to the room ‘cos my head just went boom and I’m moving 
Can’t you tell I’m in tune and I’m moving so much closer to you 
Can’t you tell I’m in tune and I’m moving so much closer to you 

You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 

Scheming, thinking of the right place 
Beaming, laughing at my own face 
We got a long way to go ‘cos you make like you’re so disapproving 
But can’t you tell I’m in tune and I’m moving so much closer to you 
Can’t you tell I’m in tune and I’m moving so much closer to you 

You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 
You, you, you, you, you move me 

Status Quo - No contract

I don’t want your lovin’ baby, I won’t give you mine 
I need more than ifs and maybes to help me pass the time 

Give me private lessons, teach me all you can 
Play me silent movies, but remember baby 
But remember baby 
We don’t got no contract 

I won’t buy your lying baby, you won’t buy my love 
Don’t you think no crying babay, I won’t take no bluff 

Give me private lessons, teach me all you can 
Play me silent movies, but remember baby 
Oh remember baby 
We don’t got no contract 

Give me private lessons, teach me all you can 
Play me silent movies, but remember baby 
Oh remember baby 
We don’t got no contract 

Status Quo - Not fade away

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be 
You’re gonna give your love to me 
I’m gonna love you night and day 
Love is love, and not fade away 
Love is love, and not fade away 

My love’s bigger than a Cadillac 
I try to show it but you drive me back 
Your love for me has gotta be real 
For you to know just how I feel 
And not fade away, not fade away 
Not fade away 

My love’s bigger than a Cadillac 
I try to show it but you drive me back 
Love to last more than one day 
Love is love and not fade away 
Said, love is love and not fade away 
Not fade away 

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be 
You’re gonna give your love to me 
I wanna love you night and day 
Love is love, and not fade away 
Love is love, and not fade away 
Not fade away, it won’t fade away 

Status Quo - Nothing comes easy

Fussing and fighting alone with our friends 
Holding our breath and hoping it never will end 
It’s been a long, long haul 
We would be ducking and diving, a rise then a fall 
Pretending the ups and the downs didn’t matter at all 
And we got it almost right 
Well there were hundreds and hundreds of mumbling miles 
Always a personal reason to cop or to smile 
Now there’s a green light 

We came and we went, we went then we came 
Slowly but surely we learnt that it wasn’t a game 
But it was good clean fun 
We were just second-hand cars along with the rest 
Holding our own and hanging on in with the best 
Nothing comes easy 

Drinking and thinking what we’d rather do 
Nothing of any real interest is coming on through 
Maybe we’re all right now 
But in the end does it matter, matter at all? 
Scratching a living and having one hell of a ball 
Nothing comes easy 

Status Quo - O baby

Oh baby, why don’t you come home? 
Oh baby, don’t you leave me alone 
Oh baby, been away for far too long 

When you get home, gonna sing you this song 
They’re gonna know ‘cos you’ve been treating me wrong 
Oh baby, been away for far too long 

Oh baby, why don’t you come home? 
Oh baby, don’t you leave me alone 
Oh baby, been away for far too long 

When you get home, gonna sing you this song 
They’re gonna know ‘cos you’ve been treating me wrong 
Oh baby, been away for far too long 

Status Quo - Obstruction day

I woke up this morning, the sky was blue 
Gonna take it easy, got nothing to do 
Ain’t going to work, no bills to pay 
It’s a perfect day 

Then I slipped on the soap as I got in the shower 
I’d turn on the lights, but there was no power 
Could this happen to me? Is this starting to be 
An obstruction day? 

We can send a man up to the moon, a satellite to Mars 
We’ve got microwaves and Ladyshaves and supersonic cars 
There’s so much money in your pocket it don’t matter who you are 
‘Cos there ain’t no way to delay an obstruction day 

I went for a drive but I wasn’t alone 
Too many people jamming the road 
I’m gonna be late, I declare a state 
Of obstruction day 

Yeah, we can climb the highest mountain, tunnel right under the sea 
We got mobile homes, mobile phones, digital pay TV 
With all this technology we think that we are free 
But there ain’t no way to delay an obstruction day 
Obstruction day 

You can check it out with the weatherman, but you see the sun don’t shine 
Make plans if you wanna, and hope that it works out fine 
You’ll reach your destination but you won’t arrive on time 
‘Cos there ain’t no way to delay an obstruction day 
No, there ain’t no way to delay an obstruction day 
Woah, there ain’t no way to delay an obstruction day 

Status Quo - Oh! What a night

Walking the tightrope and losing my pole 
I hang on by my teeth 
One of those nights, it didn’t feel too right 
Gonna cry myself to sleep 

Oh! What a night 
Oh! What a flight it was 
Oh! Oh! What a night 

No telephone news and I’m missing you 
I can’t afford to phone 
There’s a thousand people using my room 
But I never felt so alone 

Oh! What a night 
Oh! What a flight it was 
Oh! Oh! What a night 

I picture your face, I keep on hearing your voice 
I’m dying in the sheets 
I can’t think too much, so I drink too much 
I still can’t get to sleep 

Oh! What a night 
Oh! What a flight it was 
Oh! Oh! What a night 

Status Quo - Ol' rag blues

When you look into a mirror 
tell me what do you see? 
Is it pictures of Lily crying? D'you know what I mean? 
I've been living high 
I've been living low 

Like a bird in the sky 
oh 
this is the way to go. 
What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear? 
What you gonna do with those ol' rag blues? 
What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear? 
01' rag blues 
ol' rag blues 
ol' rag blues. 
Did you think it was forever 
well 
now you know. 
The summer sun keeps shining 
shine through the blue. 
I've been living high 
oh 
I've been living low 

Never give up trying 
oh no 
no 
no. 
What you gonna do with those faded blues you wear? . . . 
I can hear you calling somewhere in the blue. 
Can you hear me calling for you 
for you? 

What you gonna do with those ol' blue jeans you wear? 
0l' rag blues 
ol' rag blues 
ol' rag blues. 

Status Quo - One for the money

I found myself with no-one I could turn to 
The situation went from bad to worse 
While I was out there taking care of business 
Oh I was moving forward in reverse 

I started out with every good intention 
I wanted just to get back on my feet 
The enemy will soon be gunning 
It won’t be long before I’m running 
And I’ll be calling for the fleet 

I’m gonna move to the light 
Gonna stand up and fight 
I’m gonna show I was wrong 
I’m gonna win back the right 
Oh it wasn’t for the wont of trying that I turned to the other side 
One for the money 

I never made enough for what I needed 
I thought that I could find an easy way 
But I was wrong and now I’m running 
It won’t be long, and they’ll be gunning for me 
And everybody’s closing in on me 

I’m gonna move to the light 
Gonna stand up and fight 
I’m gonna show I was wrong 
Gonna win back the right 
Oh it wasn’t for the wont of trying that I turned to the other side 
One for the money 

I’m gonna move to the light 
Gonna stand up and fight 
I’m gonna show I was wrong 
Gonna win back the right 
Oh it wasn’t for the wont of trying that I turned to the other side 
One for the money 

One for the money, one for the money..... 

Status Quo - One man band

When I’m talkin’ nothing’s getting through 
When I’m screamin’ it’s never clear to you 
Can you hear me? Am I wasting my time? 
Am I working in a one man band? 

When I’m looking straight in your eyes 
Is there anyone home? You’re telling me lies 
Listen to me, are you wasting my time? 
It’s lonely in a one man band 
It’s lonely in a one man band 

Words out of line don’t ever hurt you 
Forever cryin’, trying to turn you around 

Woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh 

Anticipating what you’re gonna do 
Still I’m waiting for a sign from you 
Come together, am I wasting my time? 
And I’ll always be a one man band 
I’ll always be a one man band 
It’s lonely in a one man band 

Woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh

Status Quo - Over and done

I really didn’t wanna break it, you know I’m sorry its over and done 
I really thought we would have made it but now its gone 
Can you look into my eyes and tell me that there’s nothing wrong 
I know you know it’s not the same, it’s not the same old song 
It’s over and over and over, I told you it’s over and done 

None of us are getting younger and we all want to be a millionaire 
And when you stop to think about it, it seems unfair 
But if you never stop to think at all you’d never be aware 
And never understand the meaning of the love we share 
It’s over and over, I told you it’s over, it’s only fair 
Oh it’s over and over, I told you it’s over and done 

It’s no good trying to make it better, you know it doesn’t feel right to do 
Everything we shared together would break in two 
Can you hear what I’ve been trying to say? I wouldn’t do you wrong 
We’ve got to get it over now and learn to carry on 
It’s over and over and over, I told you it’s over and done 
It’s over and over and over, I told you it’s over and done 
Oh it’s over and over, I told you it’s over and done 

Status Quo - Over the edge

I’m shaking all over from my head to my feet 
I thought I was cold but I’ve been really feeling the heat 
You’re turning me on, you’re driving me crazy 

My temperature’s rising when I’m talking to you 
It wouldn’t surprise me if you told me a hundred and two 
What’s going on? You’re driving me crazy 

And I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling 
Yeah I’m falling, Im falling’ I’m falling 
I’ve never felt like it before 
Surely it’s against the law 
What’s going on? What’s going on? 
What’s going on? 
You’re driving me crazy 

You gave me the fever and the fever is hot 
Taking me higher and higher, right to the top 
Don’t let it stop, you’re driving me crazy 

You gotta believe me ‘cos I never pretend 
You’re doing it now, so do it again and again 
Turning me on, driving me crazy 

And I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling 
Yeah I’m falling, Im falling’ I’m falling 
And like I said before 
Surely it’s against the law 
What’s going on ? What’s going on? 
What’s going on? 
You’re driving me crazy 

Over the edge, I’m falling 
Over the edge, I’m falling 
Never felt like it before 
Surely it’s against the law 
What’s going on ? What’s going on? 
You’re driving me crazy, you’re driving me crazy 
You’re driving me crazy, you’re driving me crazy 
You’re driving me crazy..... 

I’m shaking all over from my head to my feet 
I thought I was cold but I’m a-feeling the heat 
My temperature’s rising when I’m talking to you 
It wouldn’t surprise me it’s a-hundred-and-two 
You gave me the fever and the fever is hot 
It’s taking me higher, right to the top 
You gotta believe me ‘cos I never pretend 
You’re doing it now, so do it again 
I’m shaking all over from my head to my feet 
I’m shaking all over, I’m shaking all over 
I’m shaking all over from my head to my feet 
I’m shaking all over, I’m shaking all over 
I’m shaking all over from my head to my feet 
I’m shaking all over, shaking all over 

Status Quo - Overdose

Hear me, I’m calling 
I can’t believe it’s happening again 
Help me, I’m falling 
Making the same mistakes again 

Hold me, just hold me 
You told me what was right and what was wrong 
And I can’t stand the feeling 
I never found the words to the song 
If I hold myself together 
The pain won’t last forever 

I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overdose of life 
I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overdose of life 
I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overload of life 
I can’t take anymore 

It’s too late to change the way you’re feeling 
About leaving me 
It’s so sad this is the way it has to be 
But now I see 
I gotta hold myself together 
The pain won’t last forever 

I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overdose of life 
I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overdose of life 
I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overload of life 
I’ve had an overdose, I’ve had an overload of life 

Because I love you, love you, love you, love you, love you 
I wanna tell you, wann tell you, wanna tell you I love you 
I can’t take anymore, oh no 
And it’s so sad that you’re leaving 
It’s over now 
I can’t take anymore 

Status Quo - Paper plane

Riding on a big white butterfly 
I turned my back away towards the sky 
I closed my eyes to look for something 
Saw myself as really nothing 
Then I realized my butterfly 
Wasn’t really up there with me 
We all make mistakes, forgive me 
Would you like to ride my butterfly? 

Riding on a long blue paper plane 
Getting seasick, sorry once again 
Landing strip is getting nearer 
Hope the fog lifts, makes it clearer 
Then I realized my paper plane 
Wasn't really up there with me 
We all make mistakes, forgive me 
Would you like to ride my paper plane? 

Riding in a three grand Deutsche car 
A to B is often very far 
Home is near, but such a long way 
Legs and heads all feel the wrong way 
Then I realized my Deutsche car 
Is only there to get me somewhere 
Even so I really do care 
Would you like to ride my Deutsche car? 

Status Quo - Paradise flat

She was sold at the paradise flats 
Tell me, what d’you think of that? 
No goodbye, just a pat on the back 

Well I know she’s made her mind up 
That she don’t need me around 
I’m trying just to see what you’re trying to do to me 
Your trying to screw me down 
Right through the ground oh yeah 

In paradise flats there’s rooms for hire, 
No-one cares who you are 
You won’t come back, it’s too late now 
You’ve been seen too much 
I know what you are 
You won’t come back, no you won’t come back 

Well I know she’s made her mind up 
That she don’t need me around 
Oh I’m trying just to see what you’re trying to do to me 
Your trying to screw me down 
Right through the ground oh yeah 

Status Quo - Perfect remedy

I thought that you would leave my memory 
I didn’t think you’d stay in mind, I didn’t think at all 
At least I thought that with some misery 
I’d find a way to have it all, and with or without you 

But it’s all right, this or any way 
It’s all right, which any other way 
Any night or any other day 
It’s all right, put it another way 
You do like you do when you do what you do like I do 
Day out, day in you’re always trying to fight for Control 

You thought you had the perfect remedy 
A perfect remedy for me, a remedy for all 
You say at last you tried so pleasantly 
To find a way to have it all, or have a drink on me 

But it’s all right, this or any way 
It’s all right, which any other way 
Any night or any other day 
It’s all right, put it another way 
You do like you do when you do what you do like I do 
Day out, day in you’re always trying to fight for Control 

I guess it’s just a faded memory 
That comes along with certainty, then goes and fades away 
But it’s all right, this or any way 
It’s all right, which any other way 
Any night or any other day 
It’s all right 

Status Quo - Pictures of matchstickmen

When I look up to the sky 
I see your eyes, a funny kind of yellow 
Rush home to bed, I soak my head 
I see your face underneath my pillow 
I wake next morning, I'm still yawning 
I see your face looking through my window 
Pictures of matchstick men and you 
Images of matchstick men and you 
Alls I ever see is them and you 
Windows echo your reflection 
When I look in their direction, now 
There're faces haunting me 
Your face just won't leave me alone 
Pictures of matchstick men and you 
Images of matchstick men and you 
Alls I ever see is them and you 
You're in the sky 
You're with the sky 
You make men cry 
You are, you're in the sky 
You're with the sky 
You make men cry 

Status Quo - Point of no return

Is it another day? Is there another way? 
Nothing at all to say, it’s just another day without you 
My way without you 
Should I be holding back? Should I be holding out? 
Should I be keeping quiet when I could scream and shout about you 
All out about you 
You, you give me everything but love 
Shall I hold on? Has it all gone? 

This is the way it is, this is the point of no return 
We get the messages, still we have everything to learn 
Telling it like it is, this is the point of no return 

Am I the last to learn? Am I the last to know? 
Is it a parting shot? Is it the final blow without you? 
To go without you? 
You, you give me everything but love 
Shall I hold on? Has it all gone? 

This is the way it is, this is the point of no return 
We get the messages, still we have everything to learn 
Telling it like it is, this is the point of no return 

Always too long, always too far 
Always too strong for me to defend 
Is it a fade? Is it an end? 

You, you give me everything but love 
Shall I hold on? Has it all gone? 

This is the way it is, this is the point of no return 
We get the messages, still we have everything to learn 
Telling it like it is, this is the point of no return 

This is the way it is, this is the point of no return 
We get the messages, still we have everything to learn 
Telling it like it is, this is the point of no return 
This is the way it is, the point of no return 
The point of no return, the point of no return 
The point of no return, the point of no return 
The point of no return 

Status Quo - Poor old man

He is in his room, men will be there soon 
They come to smash the heaven he has known 
Now he’s sure to know soon that he must go 
This backstreet dream he has to leave behind 
Oh, what a shame, oh what a shame 

He’s a poor old man, poor old man 
Poor old man, can we help you? 

Things are at their worst, what should he do first? 
He must wonder, no one wants to know 
He must spread his wings, pack away his things 
A sack is all he needs for all he owns 
Tears they blind his eyes, tears blind his eyes 

He’s a poor old man, poor old man 
Poor old man, can we help you at all? 

Poor old man, poor old man 
Poor old man, can we help you at all? 

Poor old man, poor old man 
Poor old man, can we help you at all? 

Status Quo - Power of rock

He was a lonely boy in a broken land 
Where people were living and dying in the name of a higher man 
And then one day into his hand the power of rock and roll 

She was a hungry girl for a caring world 
And the rules say don’t take a step over there, but she carries on 
And drawn one day into the force by the power of rock and roll 

Oh, oh, fighting for love, and singing you 
Oh, oh, telling you why, and showing you 
Oh oh, gonna be joined by rock and roll 

In a working band he became the man 
But the law of the street said the could not meet in any circumstance 
But she did not care, they began to share the power of rock and roll 

Oh, oh, fighting for love, and singing you 
Oh, oh, telling you why, and showing you 
Oh oh, gonna be joined by rock and roll 

Well they were learning, of trouble they stayed ahead 
And they were burning, burning up and seeing red 
That the place they loved would fall apart 
If you can’t show feeling from the heart 
And then fighting, know what they were fighting for 
Can everybody give and take a little more 
Because it’s all too easy to forget 
That you can fight ‘til there ain’t no reason left 
So everybody.... sing 

Oh, oh, and singing you 
Oh, oh, and showing you 
Woh oh oh, and telling you 
Woh oh oh 

He was a lonely man, she was a hungry girl 
Living on different sides, they were praying for a guiding word 
And then one day into their hands, the power of rock and roll 

Oh, oh, and singing you 
Oh, oh, and showing you 
Woh oh oh, and telling you 
Woh oh oh 

Status Quo - Price of love

Wine is sweet and gin is bitter 
You drink all you can but you won’t forget her 
You talk too much, you laugh too loud 
You see her face in every crowd 

That’s the price of love, the price of love 
The debt you pay with tears and pain 
The price of love, the price of love 
Costs you more when you’re to blame 

Kiss one girl, you kiss another 
You kiss themall but you won’t recover 
You’re dancing slow, you’re dancing fast 
You’re happy now but that won’t last 

That’s the price of love, the price of love 
The debt you pay with tears and pain 
The price of love, the price of love 
Costs you more when you’re to blame 

That’s the price of love, the price of love 
The debt you pay with tears and pain 
The price of love, the price of love 
Costs you more when you’re to blame 

That’s the price of love, the price of love 
The debt you pay with tears and pain 
The price of love, the price of love 
Costs you more when you’re to blame 

Wine is sweet and gin is bitter 
You drink all you can but you won’t forget her 

Status Quo - Proud Mary

Left a good job in the city, working for the man every night and day 
And I never lost a minute of sleeping worrying ‘bout the way things might have been 
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

Been a lot of places in Memphis, pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans 
But I never saw the good side of the city ‘til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen 
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

If you come down to the river, bet you’re gonna find some people who live 
You don’t have to worry if you don’t have no money, people on the river are happy to give 
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary she just keeps on burning 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin on the river 

Status Quo - Queenie

A long time ago I saw you there 
Sitting in a corner chair 
I was looking for a place to stay 
You were only hanging out and hanging around 
I didn’t see what I was looking for 
I guess I never really knew 
I was looking for a private eye 
You never knew what I was talking about 

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won’t you come along and make a home with me 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family 

The next time I saw you was the summertime 
I’m just a little older now 
Things seemed to get a little better then 
You went out and got a ticket taking you home 
It really was a shame I didn’t follow you 
It would have saved a lot of time 
I had to come around eventually 
And ask you if you want to maybe marry me 

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won’t you come along and make a home with me 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family 

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won’t you come along and make a home with me 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won’t you come along and make a home with me 
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history 

Status Quo - Railroad

Railroad, she left me standing on the line Railroad, she's really leaving me this time leaving on that midnight train 
Leaving, never gonna come back again. 

I'm living alone 
A place of my own 
A bed, a chair and one back door 
Something went wrong 
With the words to my song 
And now she ain't around no more 
Something she sad 
As we lay on my bad 
Six or seven hours ago 
Guess I was wrong 
I really didn't think she would go 

Railroad, she left me standing on the line Railroad, she's really leaving me this time 
Leaving on this midnight train 
Leaving, never gonna come back again. 

Her face was always smiling 
Guess she was always laughing at me. 
Her face was always smiling 
Guess she was always laughing at me. 
If I'd relised 
I'd be less surprised to find that she was laughing at me. 

Status Quo - Rain

How can I see what I'm leaving for? 
How can I give what I gave before? 
How can you tell me that you want me to stay? 
How can I stay when I'm trying to say, 
That I can't live without the rain, 
Yes I can't live without the rain. 

How can I feel what I'm trying to feel, 
How can I move when I'm heel to heel, 
You're always shouting about the doubt in my eye 
But I can't answer cos my eyes are so dry. 
Now I can't live without the rain. 
Yes I can't live without the rain. 

I can't live without the rain, 
That's falling on my head, 
Rain that's falling on my head. 

Rain zhat's falling, 
Rain that's falling, 
Rain that's fallingon m head. 

I'd started thinking back to you when, 
I'd like to send a line but then again, 
How can I write you when there ain't no light, 
I' feeling tight tonight but that's alright. 
Now I can't live without the rain, 
Yes I can't live without the rain. 

Status Quo - Raining in my heart

The sun is out, the sky is blue 
There’s not a cloud to spoil the view 
But it’s raining, raining in my heart 

The weatherman says clear today 
He doesn’t know you’ve gone away 
And it’s raining, raining in my heart 

Oh misery, misery 
What’s gonna become of me? 

I tell my blues they mustn’t show 
But soon these tears are bound to flow 
‘Cos it’s raining, raining in my heart 

Oh misery, misery 
What’s gonna become of me? 

The sun is out, the sky is blue 
There’s not a cloud to spoil the view 
But it’s raining, raining in my heart 
Raining in my heart 
Raining in my heart 

Status Quo - Reason for living

I felt in need of some loving so I sat down on a wall 
I tried to find a reason for living, but I couldn't find a reason at all 
So I owned up to my maker and I started to say a prayer 
I waited for an answer but there wasn't anybody there 

I thought there should have been someone, but I wasn't quite sure who 
It finished me to find there was no-one that I could take my troubles to 
So I knelt down by my bedside and I started to say a prayer 
It was when I asked for nothing I could feel that there was somebody there 

I'm looking still, but it's easy 'cos I know which way to go 
It doesn't matter how long it takes me 'cos there's someone there to help me who knows 
All the things that I am after, all the loving that I want to share 
It's so hard but I don't mind 'cos there really is somebody there 

I felt in need of some loving so I sat down on a wall 
I tried to find a reason for living, but I couldn't find a reason at all 
So I owned up to my maker and I started to say a prayer 
I waited for an answer but there wasn't anybody there 

Status Quo - Red sky

I was out on the highway 
I was out on my feet 
I was tired and hungry 
I was late for the meet. 

I had a red sky behind me 
I had the bad guys on my tail 
I had a hundred different reasons 
To keep me falling awake 
I had a red sky behind me 
With the stars coming into view 
And the thought that kept me going 
Was soon I’m gonna make it with you 

I had the desert on both sides now 
I had the lights in my eyes 
Of the town I remember 
Up ahead in the cold black sky 

I had a red sky behind me 
I had the bad guys on my tail 
I had a hundred different reasons 
To keep me falling awake 
I had a red sky behind me 
With the stars coming into view 
And the thought that kept me going 
Was soon I’m gonna make it with you 

Well I remember that old saying ‘bout how good tomorrow will be 
But will I be lucky to see with a red sky’s lucky for me 

In my dreams there is a picture of me in a big gold frame 
And the poeple that I’ve never seen are pointing at my name 

I had a red sky behind me 
I had the bad guys on my tail 
I had a hundred different reasons 
To keep me falling awake 
I had a red sky behind me 
With the stars coming into view 
And the thought that kept me going 
Was soon I’m gonna make it with you 

I had a red sky behind me 
With the stars coming into view 
And the thought that kept me going 
Was soon I’m gonna make it with you 

Status Quo - Restless

There are words to say but I swear I just can’t find them 
Though in my heart I know fools 
May hesitate from the memories behind them 
While the angels laugh and say, I told you so 
Oh, I’m restless, darling I’m restless 
Waiting for you to look my way 
I don’t think that I can wait another day 

I cry when the feeling overtakes me 
‘Cos the love I give seems so little in your eyes 
The test of time always breaks me 
With nothing tried, and nothing realised 
Oh, I’m restless, darling I’m restless 
Waiting for you to look my way 
I don’t think that I can wait another day 

No man is an island but you do that very well 
It sure takes a fool to find another 

But I believe for every heart that’s broken 
There’s a stranger’s smile to put it on the mend, then 
Those old familiar feelings seldom spoken 
Out of nowhere come back again 
And I’m restless, darling I’m restless 
Waiting for you to look my way 
I don’t think that I..., the hour is getting late 
I can’t wait another day 

Status Quo - Resurrection

Sat by a river, wasting my time 
I looked at the water and it gave me a sign 
I made connection, my reflection 
Was calling me back to rock and roll 

It was moving, moving along 
I looked a little closer and I thought of a song 
And my raection was satisfaction 
Calling me back to rock and roll 

Calling, calling me back 
I saw it in the water and I’m hitting the track 
Nothing to pack, polish my act Lord 
I’m gonna play some rock and roll 

I was looking, looking ahead 
Staying up instead of falling back into bed 
Fuel injected, I’ve been elected 
He’s calling me back to rock and roll 

It must be something, something He said 
That’s changing my mind and adjusting my head 
A new direction, a resurrection 
Calling me back to rock and roll 

Calling, calling me back 
I saw it in the water and I’m hitting the track 
Nothing to pack, polish my act Lord 
I’m gonna play some rock and roll 

Status Quo - Ring of a change

I look back and I open my eyes 
I hear the words like they should be heard 
And it feels like a ring of a bell echoing through me 
I look back and it’s never the same 
And that’s the way that it ought to be 
What I feel is the sound of a change echoing through me 

Move into the light 
Come on into the light 
Move into the light 
I’ll see you in the light, all right 

I think on and I think of today 
And what today is gonna be for us 
Will we find all the peace that is there and needs to taken 
I think on and think its a must 
That we slow down for just a while 
And I think there’s an ounce of a change echoing through me 

Move into the light 
Come on into the light 
Move into the light 
I’ll see you in the light, all right 

I look back and I think of a song 
I change the words round to make a rhyme 
But the song is the same and the change is echoing through me 
I look back and it’s never the same 
I leave the song like it use to be 
But I know there’s a ring of a change echoing through me 

Move into the light 
Come on into the light 
Move into the light 
I’ll see you in the light, all right 

Status Quo - Riverside

She left me cold and hungry by the riverside 
She left me so downhearted there and I really cried 
About mistakes I’d made and it’s a crying shame 
I can’t believ the way they start all over again 

She left me cold and hungry by the riverside 
Without a word or a note, so I couldn’t find 
A reason for to stay where I wanted to stay 
There didn’t seem to me to be anyway 

I got away from the city from the riverside 
And it was oh, such a pity ‘cos I really tried 
It didn’t make me feel how I wanted to feel 
I turned around to be where I wanted to be 

I got away from the city from the riverside 
And it was all nitty gritty there, however I tried 
I didn’t wait to feel how I knew I would feel 
I had to turn around, ‘cos I wouldn’t be found 

Don’t blame me or point your finger at me 
I’m not blind and I see, don’t point your finger at me 
Don’t you do it, don’t you do it to me 
Don’t point your finger my way 
Don’t put the blame all my way 

She found me so light-hearted by the riverside 
She didn’t cry or try and I didn’t mind 
‘Cos I just had to stay wher I wanted to stay 
And the mistakes I made, I made them anyway 

She left me cold and hungry by the riverside 
And it was oh, such a pity ‘cos I really tried 
It didn’t make me feel how I wanted to feel 
I turned around to be where I wanted to be 

Don’t blame me or point your finger at me 
I’m not blind and I see, don’t point your finger at me 
Don’t you do it, don’t you do it to me 
Don’t point your finger my way 
Don’t put the blame all my way 

She left me cold and hungry by the riverside 
And it was oh, such a pity ‘cos I really tried 
It didn’t make me feel how I wanted to feel 
I turned around to be where I wanted to be 
She left me cold and hungry by the riverside 
Riverside, riverside... 

Status Quo - Roadhouse blues

Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel 
Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel 
Yeah, we’re going to the roadhouse 
We’re gonna have a real good time 

Yeah, the back of the Roadhouse they got someone to love 
Yeah, the back of the Roadhouse they got someone to love 
That’s sort of people like to go down slow 

Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll, baby, roll 
Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll, all night long 

Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel 
Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel 
Yeah, we’re going to the roadhouse 
We’re gonna have a real good time 

In the back of the Roadhouse they got someone to love 
At the back of the Roadhouse they got someone to love 
That’s sort of people like to go down slow 

Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll, baby, roll 
Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll, all night long 

You gotta roll, roll, roll 
You gotta ease my soul, all right 
You gotta roll, roll, roll 
You gotta jump up and get me baby 
I know you want me baby 
You gotta roll, roll, roll 
You gotta ease my soul, all right 

I shoulda made you, I shoulda made you 
Give up your vows, give up your vows 

Save my city, save my city 
Right now, oh baby, baby 

I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer 
I woke up this morning, and I got myself a beer 
The future’s uncertain, and the end is always near 

Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll, baby, roll 
Let it roll, baby, roll, let it roll 
All night long 

Status Quo - Rock til you drop

Don’t hang up your shoes, just kick out the blues 
And rock ‘til you drop tonight 
All we do depends upon you 
So rock ‘til you drop tonight 

We made all the high spots, the star studded bills and the mirror balls 
Half of the time we were playing a game 
Half of the time I could hardly remember my name 

So stay with us now, and hang in somehow 
And rock ‘til you drop tonight 
Rock ‘til you drop tonight 
Rock ‘til you drop 

We hit all the high spots, the star studded bills and those mirror balls 
Half of the time we were playing a game 
Half of the time I could hardly remember my name 

So stay with us now and hang in somehow 
And rock ‘til you drop tonight 
All we do depends upon you 
So rock ‘til you drop tonight 
Rock ‘til you drop tonight 
Rock ‘til you drop tonight 
Rock ‘til you drop tonight 

Status Quo - Rock'n'Roll

Never thought I’d have a worry for me to be alone 
Playing near or far too many times should have known 
It can lose you all sleep at night 
Twelve bar blues is now alright 
Now it’s up to you to try and find the reason to 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and every song 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and everyone 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock and Rock ‘n’ Roll 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock keeps rollin’ on 
Waiting all the time to find radio plays on Caroline 
They say you’ll get there in the end 
We can pray, what we say 
Makes a difference in the end 

Looking back it can be funny, it can be very strange 
Everything we do, it’s funny, we never rearrange 
It can lose you all sleep at night 
Twelve bar blues is now alright 
Now it’s up to you to try and find the reason to 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and every song 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and everyone 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock and Rock ‘n’ Roll 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock keeps rollin’ on 
Waiting all the time to find radio plays on Caroline 
They say you’ll get there in the end 
We can pray, what we say 
Makes a difference in the end 

Rushing always in a hurry, and try to give it up 
Everything we do it’s funny, it’s never good enough 
It can lose you all sleep at night 
Twelve bar blues is now alright 
Now it’s up to you to try and find the reason to 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and every song 
Rock ‘n’ Roll and everyone 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock and Rock ‘n’ Roll 
It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rock keeps rollin’ on 
Waiting all the time to find radio plays on Caroline 
They say you’ll get there in the end 
We can pray, what we say 
Makes a difference in the end

Status Quo - Roll over lay down

When I got home that night early one morning 
Seeing the note written in ink pinned to the door 
Taking a drink cool from the fridge from the table 
I drank a toast you were the most the night before 

Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over it's a long way where I've been 
Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over lay down 

When I get home tomorrow night after this morning 
Show me the care you showed in the note the night before 
Maybe I won't take a drink from the table 
Reckon I'll lay me straight down the floor 

Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over it's a long way where I've been 
Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over lay down 

When I get home tomorrow night after this morning 
Show me the care you showed in the note the night before 
Maybe I won't take a drink from the table 
Reckon I'll lay me straight down the floor 

Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over it's a long way where I've been 
Roll over lay down and let me in 
Roll over lay down 

Status Quo - Roll the dice

I walk along an empty street 
I love the sounding of my feet 
It makes me feel so good and though 
There’s nobody else around, not a soul 

I’m quite content to take a seat 
The council put there in the street 
And watch the nothing going on 
Can it really be so wrong all along 
To want to have the best of both worlds 
A winner once again 

Roll roll roll, roll the dice 
Pay pay pay, pay the price 
Roll roll roll, gimme a roll 
I wanna roll, roll the dice 

I made a beeline for a bar 
That I had noticed just before 
I didn’t bother going in 
And then the feeling came again from within 
To want to have the best of both worlds 
A winner once again 

Roll roll roll, roll the dice 
Pay pay pay, pay the price 
Roll roll roll, gimme a roll 
I wanna roll, roll the dice
