Deep Purple

Deep Purple
Woman from Tokyo

Fly into the rising sun,
Faces, smiling everyone
Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
I feel it in my heart

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She’s so good to me

Talk about her like a Queen
Dancing in a Eastern Dream
Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
That carries me away

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She’s so good to me

But I’m at home and I just don’t belong ...

So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove
Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When we’re alone in Her City of light

Rising from the neon gloom
Shining like a crazy moon
Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
I get high

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She’s so good to me

Mary Long

Mary Long is a hypocrite
She does all the things that she tells us not to do
Selling filth from a corner shop
And knitting patterns to the high street queue
She paints roses, even makes them smell good
And then she draws titties on the khazy wall
Drowns kittens just to get a thrill
And writes sermons in the Sunday Chronicle

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

Mary told Johnny not to write such trash
Said it was a waste of public money
She made a fuss, they made apologies
But everybody thought the show was funny
When the nation knew you’d had children
It came as such a surprise
We really didn’t know you’d had it in you
How you did it we can only surmise

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

Mary Long, you’re not alone
But you’re a long way behind our times
What we do in full frontal view
Is more honest than your clean-up mind
What I’m saying, Mary Long is
When you can spare a minute
Go find your friend the porny Lord
Dig your self a hole and jump in it

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

Super Trouper

I was a young man when I died
I was a flash, I was full of pride
I gave it all, I gave my soul, I was so strong
I felt the truth, I felt the pain in every song

How well you know me
You’ve seen me cry
I’m just a shadow
In a rock and roll sky

I was living in a rock and roll sky
I was a king, heavy on the style
Super trouper, yes I know you well, making me shine
I couldn’t see what you did to me. I was so blind

How well you know me
You’ve seen me cry
I’m just a shadow
In a rock and roll sky

I wanna be like I was before
But this time I’m gonna know the score
I need a home I can leave behind knowing you’re there
Super trouper, I can see you now, return your stare

How well you know me
You’ve seen me cry
I’m just a shadow
In a rock and roll sky
