The Lyrics

I know it's not a funny story but if you like Deep Purple I think you'll agree with my sentiment. P.S. Wring That Neck is called Hard Road on the US release of The Book Of Taliesyn LP & Lucille was eventually released on the bonus disc with the remastered edition of Made In Japan.
Nobody were as good by far
You gotta face it riffs abound
Nobody were as good by far
You gotta dig their awesome sound
Ooh, it's a killer CD
They can really swing
With a drivin' power, big fat chords and everything.

I love it, and I need it, I feel it
Yeah, it's LIVE IN JAPAN
Alright, hold tight
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR.

Nobody gonna hear LUCILLE
They couldn't fit her on the end
Nobody gonna have LUCILLE
They hoped that would not offend
Ooh, it's got most of the show
But not everything
But a groovin' SMOKE, CHILD IN TIME and SPACE TRUCKIN'.

I love it, I need it, I heed it
Yeah, it turns me on
Alright, hold tight
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR.

Little Ian's gettin' in my head
I've got SPEED KING in my brain
Little Ian's gonna knock me dead
'Cos in THE MULE he plays insane
Ooh, I'm in Heaven again
I've got SPACE TRUCKIN'
But no MANDRAKE ROOT, no HARD ROAD or is that WRING.

I love it, and I need it, I feel it
Four hours an' all mine
Alright, hold tight
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR.

Nobody were as good by far
You gotta face it riffs abound
Nobody were as good by far
You gotta dig their awesome sound
Ooh, it's a killer CD
They can really swing
With a drivin' power, big fat chords and everything.

I love it, and I need it, I heed it
Yeah, it's LIVE IN JAPAN
Alright, hold tight
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR (disc 1)
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR (disc 2)
Here comes HIGHWAY STAR (disc 3)

P.S. The title should read Live In Japan 3CD set. I was thinking of my own copy which I have re-recorded and added the missing tracks from Made In Japan & the box set to make 3 X 2CD full concerts
