01. Long Live Rock & Roll

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
At the end of a 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 screamin' in my mind

Long live rock and roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock and roll

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

Long live rock and roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock and roll

If you suddenly see
What has happened to 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 best that you can do
Like a sound that's everywhere
I can hear it screaming through the air

Long live rock and roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock and roll


02. Lady Of The Lake

Music by RitcRitchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
There's a magical sound slidin' over the ground
Makin' it shiver and shake
And a permanent cry fallin' out of the sky
Slippery and sly like a snake

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

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 to the night
Brighter than ever before

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

There's a magical sound sliding over the ground
Makin' it shiver and shake
And a permanent cry fallin' out of the sky
Slippery and sly like a snake

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

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

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


03. L.A. Connection

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James 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

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

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

Carry home my broken bones and lay me down to rest
Forty days of cries and moans well I've just failed the 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

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

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


04. Gates Of Babylon

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
Look away from the sea
I can take you anywhere
Spend a vision with me
A chase with the wind

Move closer to me
I can make you anyone
I think you're ready to see
The Gates of Babylon

The power of what has been before
Rises to trap you within
A magic carpet ride a genie maybe 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

You're riding the endless caravan
Bonded and sold as a slave
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

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

Move closer to me
I can make you anyone
I think you're ready to see
The Gates of Babylon

The power of what has been before
Rises to trap you within
A magic carpet ride a genie maybe 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


05. Kill The King

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio, Cozy Powell
Lyrics by Ronie James Dio
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

Kill the King
Strike him down

Power, power it happens every day
Power, devour all along 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

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the King
Got to take his crown down

Kill the King
He'll rule no more
Strike him dead
The people roar
Kill the King
Take his head
Down, down, down, down
Oh, kill
Oh, kill
Oh, oh


06. The Shed (Subtle)

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio, Cozy Powell
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
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 heatwave
Won't save anyone near to me

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 know

I'm steel
So won't you 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

I'm steel
So come and try to break me if you can
Like a wheel
About to roll you over
Get out of my way
I'm street walkin'


07. Sensitive To Light

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
I was feelin' 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
Seems to want some more
Never gets the clue
What am I to do she'll fall
And she might call
She's a bright and shining star
But I just must be sensitive to light

She could do me 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 along
When it's feelin' 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 light


08. Rainbow Eyes

Music by Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
Lyrics by Ronnie James Dio
She's been gone since yesterday
Oh I didn't care
Never cared for yesterdays
Fancies in the air

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 whispering on the shore
No clever words you can't defend
They lead to never more

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

Summer nights are colder now
They've taken down the fayre
All the lights have died somehow
Or were they ever there

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

They've taken down the fair
