97 What the What

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
De l'album de Deep Purple WHOOSH!

Notre producteur, Bob Ezrin, nous a accueillis lors de notre premier jour de travail, un vendredi dans la salle de répétition de Nashville, avec une invitation à dîner le lundi.

Quelqu'un a demandé poliment quelle était la grande occasion.

Bob a répondu: 'Pour célébrer que nous sommes ensemble ici à nouveau pour faire un autre disque, et aussi le fait que nous sommes encore tous vivants.’

'Dans ce cas' dit un esprit farceur, 'Nous ferions mieux de le faire dimanche.'

La chanson était initialement intitulée ‘What the F*** Happened to you Last Night’

Mais, comme j'ai mentionné dans les paroles de ‘No Need to Shout’, je ne jure que lorsque c'est absolument nécessaire.

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?
