1. HIGHWAY STAR

Nobody gonna take my car,
I'm gonna race it to the ground !
Nobody gonna beat my car,
I am gonna break the speed of sound..
Ooh it's a killing machine,

2. CHILD IN TIME

Sweet child in time
You'll see the line
The line thats drawn between
Good and the bad
See the blind man
He's shooting at the world
Bullets flying
Hmmmm taking toll
If youve been bad
Lord I bet you have
And youve not been
You've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes
You'd better bow your head
Wait for the ricochet

Sweet child in time
You'll see the line
The line thats drawn between
The Good of us and the bad of us
See the blind man
Hmmm shooting at the world
The bullets flying
Hmmmm killing everyone
If you've been bad
Lord I bet you have
And you've not been
You've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes
You'd better bow your head
Hmmm wait for the ricochet




3. THE MULE (DRUM SOLO)

No one sees the things you do
Because I stand in front of you
But you drive me all the time
Put the evil in my mind
Used to sing and say my prayers
Live my life without a care
Now I have become a fool
Because I listened to the mule
How can I change when my mind is a friend
Of a Lucifer hid in the ground
Just another slave for the mule




4. STRANGE KIND OF WOMAN

There once was a woman
A strange kind of woman
The kind that gets a'written down in history
Her name was Nancy
Her face was nothing fancy
She left a trail of happiness and misery

I loved her
Everybody loved her
She loved everyone and gave them good return
I tried to take her
I even tried to break her
She said I ain't for takin' won't you ever learn

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
Oh I got a strange kind of woman
She looked like a raver
But I could never please her
On Wednesday mornings boy you can't go too far
I couldn't get her
But things got better
She said Saturday nights from now on baby you're my star

She finally said she loved me
I wed her in a hurry
No more callers and I glowed with pride
I'm dreaming
I feel like screaming
I won my woman just before she died

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
Oh I had a strange kind of woman




5. LAZY

You're lazy, just stay in bed
You're lazy, just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread

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

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

Lazy, you just stay in bed
Lazy, you just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread




6. SPACE TRUCKING

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

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop
And everynaut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We're space truckin' round the stars
Come on let's go Space Truckin'

The fireball that we rode was moving
But now we've got a new machine
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said
Man those cats can really swing
They got music in their solar system
They've rocked around the Milky Way
They dance around the Borealice
They're Space Truckin' everyday
Come on




7. BLACK NIGHT (ENCORE)

Black night is not right,
I dont feel so bright,
I dont care to sit tight.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.
I don't need a dark tree,
I don't want a rough sea,
I can't feel, I cant see.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.

Black night, black night,
I don't need black night,
I can't see dark night.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home

2. SMOKE ON THE WATER

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time

Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground

When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there

With a few red lights and a few old beds
We made a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know. . .I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

7. SPEED KING (ENCORE)

Good golly, said little miss molly
When she was rockin in the house of blue light
Tutti frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rockin to the east and west
Lucille was oh so real
When she didnt do her daddies will
Come on baby, drive me crazy--do it, do it

Im a speed king you go to hear me sing
Im a speed king see me fly

Saturday night and I just got paid
Gonna fool about aint gonna save
Some people gonna rock some people gonna roll
Gonna have a party to save my soul
Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Gonna rock and roll down to new orleans
