Status Quo Blue Eyed Lady

Little blue eyed lady, how come you’re all alone?

I’ve been asking, no-one seems to know

To whom do you belong little blue eyed lady?

The band are really moving, everyone is grooving around

Little lady, you’re still sitting down

Excuse me if you will, little blue eyed lady

The party’s nearly over, your eyes still read the same

Are you looking for one who never came?

Are you a passing cloud or a new found baby?

Little new found baby, how come you’re all alone?

I’ve been asking, no-one seems to know

Are you a passing cloud little blue eyed lady?

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 Shady Lady

Run your fingers thru my hair sweet darling

Run your fingers thru my hair

I want you when you never there sweet darling

Need you but I could not care

You got long black hair on your legs

And I like them smooth

You don’t show me you care

You won’t even move

That’s why I call you shady lady

I wish I hadn’t turn my head that morning

Wish I hadn’t turned my head

Or listened to the things you said that morning

Listened to the things you said

I get away where nobody goes

And she finds me there

She won’t leave me alone

She don’t even care

That’s why I call here shady lady, shady lady

They say, I say

You gotta lay it down the line

So get away-way I say

If you’re only playing with my time

I gotta keep you off of my back

Cos you’re making me feel so bad

I gotta get along, get along, get along

Without you now

Run your fingers thru my hair sweet darling

Run your fingers thru my hair

I want you when you never there sweet darling

Need you but I could not care

I get away where nobody goes

And she finds me there

She won’t leave me alone

She won’t even care

That’s why I call her shady lady, shady lady

I gotta get along, get along, get along

Without you now

I gotta get along, get along, get along

Without you now

I gotta get along, get along, get along

Without you now

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 Joanne

Sitting here, and all alone

Like a cold and broken stone

I’m dreaming of touching you

Silent now, an empty page

Colder than the [?] age

Above now is where we’ll be

Oh Joanne, you’re not with me

Through the turning of a wheel

Turning more and more until

You realise it’s come too soon

Surely there is still a way

If we believe in yesterday

Oh Joanne, if you would try

Oh Joanne, don’t pass me by

Think of all the friends we had

No-one heard when they were sad

To lose us as I lost you

If you ever change your mind

I’ll be here, don’t look behind

Oh Joanne, I love you still

Oh Joanne, I love you still

Think of all the friends we had

No-one heard when they were sad

To lose us as I lost you

If you ever change your mind

I’ll be here, don’t look behind

Oh Joanne, I love you still

Oh Joanne, I love you still

Sitting here, and all alone

Like a cold and broken stone

I’m dreaming of touching you

Oh Joanne, I love you still.

Status Quo Temporary Friend

Where can I go? Who can I find to talk to?

Boy, do I know it don’t look so bright to me

Because I’m heading down the road, carrying the load on my shoulders

Passing time away, drinking through the day alone

How could I know ‘cos you never show your feelings

Why did you go? Why d’ya walk out on me?

I couldn’t see the cards that you were dealing

It’s you I can’t shake, i just gotta break your spell

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Oh I don’t want to be …………… and a-lonely again

Oh I’m a-heading for the gutter and I’m close to the end

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

You gotta see, you gotta see my meaning

How can I survive? I’m out here on my own

You gotta give, give me something to believe in

Somebody to love, somebody to take me home

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Oh I don’t want to be …………… and a-lonely again

Oh I’m a-heading for the gutter and I’m close to the end

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Oh I don’t want to be …………… and a-lonely again

Oh I’m a-heading for the gutter and I’m close to the end

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Because I’m looking for the cover of a temporary friend

Status Quo Softer Ride

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

Stay in bed

Til’ I’m satisfied

And let my head

Take a softer ride

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

Find me a schack

Where it’s cool inside

Turn my back

On the cold outside

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

I could go back

To the job I had

But the same old thing

Only drives me mad, so

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

Never again

Will I have to be..down

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

Stay in bed

Til’ I’m satisfied

And let my head

Take a softer ride

I ain’t gonna work

I ain’t gonna work no more

Status Quo Someone Show Me Home

Down by the side of the hotel all-nighter

Is your old grey door

Men gather round with the fear that a lawman

Will come to clean up the floor

One a week it all begins

10:15 for sure

Smoke fills the room, they arrive in a hurry

Bring the tears to my eyes

Someone show me outta here

Someone show me home

Someone show me, I can’t stay

To see you act that way

Out on the street people moving in closer

I take the lift nineteen floors

Right to the top to the edge set for falling

I look down to see you there

Someone show me outta here

Someone show me home

Someone show me, I can’t stay

To see you act that way

Someone show me outta here

Someone show me home

Someone show me, I can’t stay

To see you act that way

Status Quo The Greatest Fighter

When the streets are empty late at night

Just the silence fills me with delight, s’alright

Rain is falling, trees are still

My mind is racing but my heart is as well

It’s not funny, it’s a shame

He’s the greatest fighter in the world

Got into a brawl over some girl, sweet girl

He’ll get better, the scars will heal

His eye will open but his heart never will

It’s not funny, it’s a shame

There’s a funny side to it all

Seeing someone lese take a fall

When it’s you it happens to, sending you

Tumbling, tumbling

Such a funny side to it all

Take another tumble and fall

Everybody’s tumbling, tumbling on

Different strokes for different folks, it’s true

Changes in our lives go right on through and through

It gets better as time goes on

Some of us are gonna end up alone

It’s not funny, it’s a shame

There’s a funny side to it all

Seeing someone lese take a fall

When it’s you it happens to, sending you

Tumbling, tumbling

Such a funny side to it all

Take another tumble and fall

Everybody’s tumbling, tumbling

Everyone’s tumbling

There’s a funny side to it all

Seeing someone lese take a fall

When it’s you it happens to, sending you

Tumbling, tumbling

Such a funny side to it all

Take another tumble and fall

Everybody’s tumbling, tumbling

Eveyone’s tumbling
