Status Quo Paradise Flats

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 Shy Fly

Come let me take you, said tiger to the fly

You’ll never make me, said fly, I’m rather shy

I’m gonna get you, said tiger with a glare

His eyes were a shining, but fly she was aware

Shy fly keep on smiling, yes, keep on smiling every day

Shy fly keep on smiling, gonna keep on smiling every day

Shy fly keep on smiling, you’re gonna keep on smiling every day

Miss Fly and Tiger turn each other on

But Fly, she keeps on smiling, he’s not the only one

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

Shy fly keep on smiling, you’re gonna keep on smiling every day

Shy fly keep on smiling, gonna keep on smiling every day

Status Quo Are You Growing Tired Of My Love?

You never seem, seem to have the time to listen to what I say

How can I know just what goes on in your mind if you always walk away

So what’s the good, what’s the good of trying

And hanging around you begging for your love

When it seems theres someone else in your dreams

And I can’t be sure of you anymore

Are you growing tired of my love?

Have you had too much of my love?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Where is the love you once gave me?

And when we meet, things are not the same now, you always hurry away

And all the friends that once you used to share with me are ignored now,

and you’re bored now

I guess we’re through, but still I go on hoping

Because you never put it into words

Can’t you see you should be honest with me

And I’ve got to find what is in your mind

Are you growing tired of my love?

Have you had too much of my love?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Where is the love you once gave me?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Have you had too much of my love?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Where is the love you once gave me?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Have you had too much of my love?

Are you growing tired of my love?

Where is the love…..

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 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 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 realised 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 paperplane

Getting seasick, sorry once again

Landing strip is getting nearer

Hope the foglifts, make it clearer

Then I realised my paperplane

Wasn’t really up there with me

We all make mistakes, forgive me

Would you like to ride my paperplane

Riding in a three grand Deutche 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 realised my Deutche car

Is only there to get me somewhere

Even so I really do care

Would you like to ride my Deutche car

Status Quo I Don’t Remember Anymore

I don’t remember anymore

I woke up freezin’ on the floor

My head was buzzin’ like a saw

I don’t remember anymore

She stole the bottle then she said

Your eyes were blue and now they’re red

I think I’ll carry you to bed

I don’t remember anymore

I wanna rock and roll, wanna sell my soul

Sail the TV around the swimming pool

I want my name in lights a la Johnny B Goode

Be an all night loon like Ronnie Wood

Don’t read the writing on the wall

Cos if I’m having me a ball

I stand around till I fall

And don’t remember anymore

I wanna rock and roll, wanna sell my soul

Sail the TV around the swimming pool

I want my name in lights a la Johnny B Goode

Be an all night loon like Ronnie Wood

She stole the bottle then she said

Your eyes were blue and now they’re red

I think I’ll carry you to bed

I don’t remember anymore

I wanna rock and roll, wanna sell my soul

Sail the TV around the swimming pool

I want my name in lights a la Johnny B Goode

Be an all night loon like Ronnie Wood

Don’t read the writing on the wall

Cos if I’m having me a ball

I stand around till I fall

And don’t remember anymore

I don’t remember anymore

I don’t remember anymore

I don’t remember anymore

I don’t remember anymore

Status Quo Centerfold

Does she walk? Does she talk?

Does she come complete?

My homeroom homeroom angel always pulled me from my seat

She was pure like snowflakes, no one could ever stain

The memory of my angel could never cause me pain

The years go by and I’m looking through some girlie magazine

And there’s my hometown angel on the pages in between

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

Angel is a centerfold

Slipping notes, under the desk

While I was thinking about her dress

I was shy, I turned away, before she caught my eye

I was shakin’ in my shoes whenever she flashed those baby blues

Something had a hold on me when Angel passed close by

Those soft and fuzzy sweaters, so magical to touch

To see her in that negligee is really just too much.

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

Angel is a centerfold

Come on

Nah nah nah nah nah nah….

It’s okay, I understand

This ain’t no never-never land

I hope that when this issue’s gone

I’ll see you when your clothes are on

Take your car, yes we will, we’ll take your car and drive it

Take it to a hotel room, and get ’em off in private

A part of me has just been ripped

The pages from my mind are stripped

Oh no, I can’t deny it

Oh yeah, I guess I got to buy it

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

My angel is a centerfold, angel is a centerfold

My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold

Angel is a centerfold

Come on

Nah nah nah nah nah nah…..

Nah nah nah nah nah nah…..

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 wondering

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 dreams to me

Seemed to be, had to be

Couldn’t find no other reason

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

Let’s have a drink, it’s Marguerita time

It’s Marguerita time, after nine

Summertime, anytime

You’ll still always find me wondering

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
