The complete lyrics - all in good time

97 What the What

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Aus dem Deep Purple Album WHOOSH!

Unser Produzent, Bob Ezrin, begrüßte uns an unserem ersten Arbeitstag - es war ein Freitag im Proberaum in Nashville - mit einer Einladung zum Abendessen am Montag.

Jemand fragte höflich: 'Was ist der Anlass?'

Bob antwortete, 'Zu feiern! Dass wir zusammen sind und wieder hier, um eine neue Platte zu machen, und der Tatsache, dass wir alle noch leben.'

'In diesem Fall', sagte eine gewitzte Person schnaufend, 'sollten wir es besser am Sonntag machen.'

Ursprünglich betitelt 'What the F*** Happened to you Last Night'

Aber wie in dem 'No Need to Shout' Wordog erwähnt; Ich schwöre nur, wenn es absolut notwendig ist.

What the What

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

We goin’ out tomorrow, gonna do it right
Celebrate the fact that we’re still alive
In that case, we better make it tonight
I’ll drink for us all, and you can drive
My mojo working and I paid my dues
I’m gonna break out my dancing shoes
I’m gonna do what I do best
I’m gonna spend my money ‘til there’s nothing left
So bad, I’ve been so bad, I’ve been so bad
What the…what happened to you last night?


Every bar in London had an old joanna
And cats who could play Rock and Roll piano
No-one cared a few teeth gone missing
Ever-y-body-got-up-to-sing.
Five string guitars, and old skin drums
On a river boat shuffle, bunch a-drunken bums
No way of knowing when the temperature dropped
The moment was hot, there was no time to stop
So bad, we were so bad, we been so bad
What the…what happened to you last night?

Long tall Sally and Short Fat Dave
Arms and legs going every-ways
They didn’t care about shape or size
The fever of love was in their eyes
Called every bad name under the sun
They did the same to us, we wuz just having fun
He went up and she went down
It didn’t really matter, they just went to town
So bad, they were so bad, they been so bad
What the…what happened to you last night?
I was so bad, I been so bad, I been so bad
What the…what happened to you last night?
