Long Live Rock'n'roll
( Blackmore / Dio )

At the end of the dream
If you know where I mean
When the mist just starts to clear
In a similar way
At the end of today
I could feel the sound of writing on the wall

It cries for you
It's the least that you can do
Like a spiral on the wind
I can hear it screaming in my mind

Chorus:

Long live rock'n'roll } 3 times

In a different time
When the words didn't rhyme
You could never quite be sure
Then on with the change
It was simple but strange
And you knew the feeling seemed to say it all

It cries for you
It's the least that you can do
Like a spiral on the wind
I can hear it screaming in my mind

Chorus:

Long live rock'n'roll } 3 times

If you suddenly see
What was happened with me
You should spread the word around
And tell everyone here
That it's perfectly clear
They can sail above it all on what they've found

It cries for you
It's the least that you can do
Like a spiral on the wind
I can hear it screaming in my mind

Chorus:

Lady Of The Lake
( Blackmore / Dio )

There's a magical sound sliding over the ground
Making it shiver and shake Refrain 1
And a permanent cry falling out to the sky
Slippery and sly like a snake

With a delicate move kind of shifty and smooth
A shadow has covered light Refrain 2
Then e beam in the shade from a silvery blade
Has shattered the edge of the night

Chorus:

I know she waits below
Only to rise on command
When she comes for me
She's got my life in her hands

When a movement behind hit the side of my mind
I trembled and shook it away
Then another assault and I started to faulter
Fibres of steel turned to clay

With a bubbly turn now the water should churn
And push it way from the core
And a lady in white will bring sun the night
Brighter than ever before

Chorus:

Lady of the lake

Refrain 1

Refrain 2

Chorus:

Straight down I'm swirling around
Blinded and bruised by the strain
There must be some way to see
Diamonds out of the rain

L. A. Connection
( Blackmore /Dio )

Carry home my broken bones and lay me down to rest
Forty days of cries and moans I guess
I've failed to pass the test
I've been sent away not a thing to say
I'm banished from the fold
I'm a fallen angel who's lost his wings
And left out in the cold

Chorus:

Ooooh L. A. Connection
Oh L. A. Connection
L. A. Connection

Operator place a call keep a secret put it through
Investigator knows it all he's at the window I wonder who
I've got to cut the line and let me drift
Find a haven in the storm
I got no time I need a lift to where
It's sweet and close and warm

Chorus:
ووووووو

Carry home my broken bones and lay me down to rest
Forty days of cries and moans well
I've just failed test
Feel I'm balanced on the brim should I lean another way
Like a flame that's going on the dim
Needs blessing from the day

Chorus:

Ooooh L. A. Connection
Oh take me away I got nothing to say
It's got to be an L. A. Connection
L. A. Connection

Gates Of Babylon
( Blackmore / Dio )

Refrain I:
Look away from sea
I can take you anywhere.
Spend a vision with me
A chase with the wind.

Refrain II:
Move close to me
I can make you anyone
I think you're ready to see
The gates of Babylon

Chorus:
The power of what has been before
Rises to trap you within
A magic carpet ride a genie may be more
A city of heavenly sin
Sleep with the devil and then you must pay
Sleep with the devil the devil will take you away
Oh Gates of Babylon

You can see but you're blind
Someone turned the sun around
But you can see in your mind
The Gates of Babylon

Chorus:
You're riding the endless caravan
Bonded and sold as a slade
A sabre dance removing all the veils
Getting as good as you gave
Sleep with the devil and then you must pay
Sleep with the devil the devil will take you away

Refrain I
Refrain II

Chorus:
The power of what has been before
Rises to trap you within
A magic carpet ride a genie may be more
A city of heavenly sin
Sleep with the devil and then you must pay
Sleep with the devil the devil will take you away
Black Gates of Babylon

The devil is me
And I'm holding the key
To the gates of sweet hell
Babylon

Kill The King
(Blackmore/Dio/Powell)

Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King
Tear him down

Chorus:
Kill the King
Strike him down

Power, power it happens every day
Power, devour all a long the way
Oh no move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King

Treason, treason, the spectre looms again
Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Chorus:
Kill the King
Tear him down
Kill the King
Got to take him crown

Chorus:
Kill the King
He'll role no more
Strike him dead
The people roar
Kill the King
Take his dead
Down, down, down, down
Oh, kill, oh, kill, oh, ohback to top
The Shed
(Subtle)(Blackmore/Dio/Powell)

I'm like a freight train
Feelin' no pain
I never turn back one track
Better step aside

Like a shot gun
I'm really someone
You'll feel my heat wave
Won't save anyone near to me

Chorus:
I'm steel
So come and try to bend me if you can
I don't feel
Before you know it it's over
Get out of my way
I'm street walking

No reputation
You better quick run
Cause I got no time I'll climb
All over you

You need a strong hand
To be a mean man
You've got to think fast
I'll last longer than you could I know

Chorus:
I'm steel
So come and try to bend me if you can
I don't feel
Before you know it it's over
Out of my way
I'm street walking

I'm a wild cat
Don't need to prove that
I'm always howlin' prowlin'
Stalkin' my prey

It could be your night
To feel the dog bite
And hear the slashing, crashin'
Tearin' inside of you

Chorus:
I'm steel
So come and try to break me if you can
Like a wheel
About to roll you over
Get out my way
I'm street walkin'back to top
Sensitive To Light
(Blackmore/Dio)

I was feeling rather good
Should've touched some wood
Here she comes again
Reachin' out to bend my ear

She's worth another look
All the time it took
Pleasin' to the eye
How can I just disappear
It ain't clear
She's a bright and shining star
But I just must be sensitive to light
Oh I just might

I could have let her in
Give her just a spin
Let her think it's love
Better rise above it all

She's knockin' at the door
Seem to want some more
Never gets the clue
What am I to do she's fall
And she might call
She's a bright and shining star
But I just must be sensitive to light

She could dome well
I can always tell
She's ready for the kill
But I think that I will go

Sure I'm gonna see
Something just for me
Till it comes alone
When it's feeling wrong I'll know
Gotta take it slow
She's a bright and shining star
But I just must be sensitive to light

She's a bright and blazing star
But I just must be sensitive to lightback to top
Rainbow Eyes
(Blackmore/Dio)

She's been gone since yesterday
Oh I didn't care
Never cered for yesterdays
Fancies in the air

Chorus:
No sighs or mysteries
She lay golden in the sun
No broken harmonies
But I've lost my way
She had rainbow eyes

Rainbow eyes, rainbow eyes,
Love should be a simple blend
A wispering on the shore
No clever word you can't defend
They lead to never more

Chorus:

Rainbow eyes,rainbow eyes
Summer nights are colder now
They taken down the fayre
All the lights have died somehow
Or were they ever there

Chorus:
_______

They've taken down the fair.
