Montrose O Lucky Man

If you have a friend on whom you think

you can rely – You are a lucky man!

If you’ve found the reason to live on and

not to die – You are a lucky man!

Preachers and poets and scholars don’t know it,

Temples and statues and steeples won’t show it,

If you’ve got the secret just try not to blow

It – stay a lucky man!

If you’ve found the meaning of the truth

in this old world – You are a lucky man!

If knowledge hangs around your neck like

pearls instead of chains – You are a lucky man!

Takers and fakers and talkers won’t tell you.

Teachers and preachers will just buy and sell you.

When no one can tempt you with heaven or hell –

You’ll be a lucky man!

Montrose We’re Going Home

We’ve been walking in shadows for far too long

Listening to memories of that same old worn-out song.

Watching the time go by with nothing more than a sigh,

Making each other cry and not really not knowing why.

No more crying, no more tears

No more wasting days and years.

Sun is rising on a brand-new day

People singing while children play

We’re going home

We’re going home, that’s right

We’re going home… (repeat)

Montrose Make It Last

Well, I remember when I was seventeen

My father told me pick your dreams

He said life ain’t easy as it seems

When you get older you’ll see what I mean

All right, yeah

Well, at the time, I wanted to be twenty-one

It seemed the right age for havin’ fun

But when I got there I was still too young

And twenty-five seemed to be the one.

But now I live my life from day to day

‘Cuz I wouldn’t have it any other way

Whether I’m twelve or whether I’m sixty-four

I spend my time like there ain’t gonna be no more

Yeah!

You know that sweet girl you’ve been chasin’ round

She got you hooked ‘long as she keeps you down

Well, I know what happens once she comes around

It won’t be long and you’ll be back on the town

But now I live my life from day to day

I wouldn’t have it any other way

Whether I’m twelve or whether I’m sixty-four

I spend my time like there ain’t gonna be no more

Lord, alright!

Lord! Yes, alright!

Things between, they suit you right.

But once you get them it seems like they’re all alike.

So make it last as long as you can

It’s so much easier when you understand

But now I live my life from day to day

I wouldn’t have it any other way

Whether I’m twelve or whether I’m sixty-four

I spend my time like there ain’t gonna be no more

No!

Yeah!

All right

Keep on rollin’

Along

Make it last

Keep on rollin’

Right on down

Make it last

As long as you can

Keep on rollin’

Come on!

Keep on rollin’

As long as you can

You got to make it last

Montrose Underground

Take me now or take me underground

Send me to meet my dark, dark sky.

Lord, help a sinner

Lord, help a fool

Take me now or let me die.

Well you take me and you break me

Well you take me and you break me.

Take me now or take me underground

Well change me into a maggot pie.

Still, if you want some, go and get your spoon

Eagles devouring a silver moon.

One by one we’ve been strolling down the line,

One by one they’re always taking up my space

and up my time.

One by one companies crawling out my ears,

One by one they’re all burning up my space

and up my years.

Well you take me and you break me

And you make me your slave.

Well you take me and you break me

And you make me your slave.

Montrose I Got The Fire

If you’re lookin’ for someone that you can keep

Well, baby pass me by.

And if you want something that’s twenty years deep

Baby, don’t even try.

But if you want someone to take your soul

Maybe lift you a little bit higher…

I got the fire

Just ‘cuz I’m skinny, don’t you sell me cheap

I’m as long as a country mile.

Well some like it wide and some like it deep

And guess which one’s my style!

If you think you can beat me at my own game

Well baby, I say you’re a liar.

Well, I got the fire

Montrose Let’s Go

You see this time it goes by fast

The best things in life can’t always last

So spend it right it might be your last time

To think to see what’s wrong and right

To live to find what’s deep inside

It’s all apart of your sad lost life

This world isn’t good enough for me

Got better things to do

This world isn’t good enough for me

Got better things to do

So time is up everyone has had enough

You lost your world, someday you’ll lose the girl

It’s time to think life isn’t something free

You made your bed you better lie in it

This world isn’t good enough for me

Got better things to do

This world isn’t good enough for me

Got better things to do

And everything you wanted

And everything you know

And everything you wanted

You just let go

You just let go

Everything you need

You just let go

An unfinished dream

Everything you need

It’s not what it seems

You just let go

And everything you wanted

And everything you know

And everything you wanted

You just let go

You just let go

An unfinished dream

Everything you need

It’s not what it seems

Montrose Dancin’ Feet

Everybody’s laughin ’bout

how my feet keep stuff movin round

I just cant keep my feet

on the ground

Kick off my shoes

I don’t want to stop

And go all night

‘Till the sun goes up

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them if I could

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them if I could

Visit any

country town

For rockin roll dance

No no

Jump to the city

Leave your penthouse too

And find a little girl

Who will dance with you

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them if I could

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them if I could

No

On the coast

Sinkin in the sand

To the mid west states

Go’in hand in hand

Oh It’s a million dollar fare

It’s not so hard to understand

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them if I could

Dancin feet

I wouldn’t stop them even if I could

No ohoho

Come on baby

Pretty baby

Pretty baby

Oh

Lets Light a match

Hit the floor

Montrose Music Man

How many times have I stood here before you

Looking in your eyes

Watching for signs trying hard not to bore you

If it means our goodbyes

Wondering if you see the writing on the wall

You see it just like me

If you see it all

But I can’t be your leading man, no

But I’ll be your music man

Let me be your music

I wanna be your music

I wanna be your music

I wanna be your music

Montrose The Dreamer

Alone at sea, close my eyes, I slip away, way up in the sky.

And I play with the angels with my paper wings.

Hook me a chain on the moon.

I’ll do anything, day or night, I’ll tell you, I don’t care

Anytime, anyplace, go anywhere.

Yeah, I’m a dreamer

Lock me away, yes my body is yours

But baby, you won’t never keep me behind closed doors.

And ya’ may think I’m crazy, well, just maybe a touch.

So you just use me, like we all need a crutch.

And you’ve got yours, and I’ve got mine

I step right behind the moon – suits me just fine.

Paralized – I feel no pain

Silver bullets numb my brain.

I look at the future and what lies ahead

The silver bullets have turned to lead.

All the more I laugh, all the more I’m gonna cry.

The more I live, the more I’m gonna die.

Montrose One Thing On My Mind

Put on your coat and hat

‘Cuz I like it like it like that.

Honey, slip on your shoes

About to rock away your blues.

Everything you like, I’m gonna make it right

And baby there’s only one thing on my mind! Oh, yeah.

Now tell your momma not to wait,

We may be a little late.

If things go right, we may just be all night.

Well, I’m feelin’ pretty hot

And that’s when I like it a lot.

And baby there’s only one thing on my mind

We’re gonna have a good time

We’re gonna let it all unwind.

I’ll foot the bill and have some fun if you will.

We gotta do it tonight

While the time is so right.

We’ll have a good time,

Havin’ a party tonight.
