Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple [SONG LYRICS]

We all came out to Montreux

On the Lake Geneva shoreline

To make records with a mobile

We didn't have much time

Frank Zappa and the Mothers

Were at the best place around

But some stupid with a flare gun

Burned the place to the ground


Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky

Smoke on the water


They burned down the gambling house

It died with an awful sound

Funky Claude was running in and out

Pulling kids out the ground

When it all was over

We had to find another place

But Swiss time was running out

It seemed that we would lose the race


Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky

Smoke on the water


We ended up at the Grand Hotel

It was empty, cold and bare

But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside

Making our music there

With a few red lights, a few old beds

We made a place to sweat

No matter what we get out of this

I know, I know we'll never forget


Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky

Smoke on the water


Songwriters: Ian Gillan / Ian Paice / Jon Lord / Ritchie Blackmore / Roger Glover
