Hungry daze

Words & music by Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover and Ian Gillan

In a dark and sweaty room in '69, tables turning
Dancing girls, silly girls, all kinds of girls and it was loud
Tuning up to madness in the back room, candles burning
Present the stinking hippy an' throw the naked thunder to the crowd
Ooh in the hungry daze

The long and lonely highway drags along, it's going nowhere
Sickness and disease and mad corruption, something's going wrong
The mountain's getting cold and lonely, the trees are bare
We all came out to montreux but that's another song
You've heard it all before in hungry daze
Back in the hu-hungry daze
Back in hungry daze
Back in hungry daze aah

Along the mountain road to do some drinking an' now we're mobile again
Different girls, laughing girls, forever girls and it's so loud
The crew have lost again ah they're beaten men
The winning team united, living for the crowd
These are the hungry daze... these are... these are the hungry daze
Hungry daze, hungry daze...
