Who Do We Think We Are! Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Woman From Tokyo (5:50)
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
2. Mary Long (4:25)
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 ?
3. Super Trooper (2:56)
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
4. Smooth Dancer (4:10)
Black suede, don't mean you're good for me
Black suede, just brings your mystery
I want to be inside of you
But you're black and I don't know what to do

You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright
Cos I'm a freelancer
And you can never break me though you try
To make me think you're magical

Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun
Because it don't shine nightly
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free
You'd better hang on tightly
You wanna rule the world, but you're acting like a girl
Who's got a false pregnancy
You've swollen up inside with nothing but your pride
And yet you keep on dancing

Black suede, don't waste your time on me
Black suede, I sense your mockery
I tried to go along with you
But you're black and I know just what to do

You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright
Cos I'm a freelancer
And you can never break me though you try
To make me think you're magical

I think you're crazy, your two-timing ways
They don't bother me none
You'd better do it right because one day or night
I'm gonna walk to freedom
You know I loved you once and I wanna love again
But you don't give nothing
You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
Baby, I ain't bluffing

Black suede, don't waste your time on me
Black suede, don't bring me misery
I tried to be inside of you
But you're black and now I know what to do

You're a smooth dancer
But it's alright
Cos I'm a freelancer
And I can tell you're faking though you try
To make me think you're magical

Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun
Bacause it don't shine nightly
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free
You'd better hang on tightly
You know I loved you once and I wanna love again
But you don't give nothing
You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
Baby, I ain't bluffing
Baby, you can rock'n'roll
But you can never show your soul, smooth dancer
5. Rat Bat Blue (5:23)
Hey baby, what you gonna do
When the lights go up on you ?
What's your name, can I drive you home ?
Sweet woman, are you all alone ?
You're the one for me
I'm gonna keep you busy as a bee, could bee, could be
Rat bat blue

Now, get up woman, don't be slow
It's getting late and I wanna go
No cause for acting big
Got to love, got to live
Stick around with me
I'm gonna show you things you never thought you'd see,
you see
Rat bat blue
You're so fine

Get out ! You didn't understand
I'm a hard loving man
No way you can satisfy
The way you look, the way you lie
And when you shut the door
Make sure I don't see you 'round here no more
Rat bat blue
Alright
6. Place In Line (6:31)
I'm living in this line
I know my place, could think of no way

Of edging along in a loser's race
The line was moving slowly
Day by night
Everybody's shuffling on to keep a place in the line

Nine long years I've been in line
Getting nowhere there is no reason
For this line I don't care.
Everybody's standing in the burning sun
Everybody's shuffling on keeping a place in the line

Don't you think we're gonna make it
We've got a place in line
We're gonna make it some time
Somehow
7. Our Lady (5:12)
Thinking out of line just to make the sun shine
Anyway I can be like you
Fighting with the truth
Trying to hide a fool in a fantasy
I'm dreaming, lay me down and take me now
Our Lady of the skies

Hiding in the sun like a loaded gun reality
Aiming high at my dream
But I can get along
She makes me strong, anyway
I'm dreaming and there is no other way
Our Lady of the skies

Flying in the sky with a bunch of high fidelity
I can hear your song
Offer me a ring just to show me your sincerity
I'm dreaming, let me go
Our Lady of the skies
