92 No Need to Shout

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album WHOOSH!

Roger thought that the phrase 'and go away' was a bit mild.

He had a point. I could have said something stronger like 'Bugger off', but I'm a sucker for understatement.

And anyway, this is a swipe at political geese....Boo!

And, one other thing:

I never swear unless it's abso-fucking-lutely necessary.

No Need to Shout

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

You stand there on your soapbox without fear
Like a chanting wild demented auctioneer
It's just a bunch of crap
You're talking out your hat
And, I don't want you chewing off my ear

No need to shout
I'm hearing what you say
No need to shout

You preach to the converted, it's insane
We're here already swinging like a train
I can only hope, that you won't
Ram it down my throat
Don't want to swallow it again

No need to shout
I'm hearing what you say
There's no need to shout
Just shut your mouth and go away

Your manifesto, stuffed inside your suitcase
Blah blah blah you're never wrong
And even when you're stooping, tying up your shoelace
You keep droning on and on and on and on

Hmm I got your message loud and clear
The meaningless is ringing in my ear
Oh, what a bunch of trash
You got, exuding from your ass
That's not the shit I want to hear

No need to shout
I'm hearing what you say
No need to shout
No, no, wrap it up
On your way
No need to shout
Just shut your mouth and go away
