smoke on the water (live) lyrics – mr. big

we all came out to montreux
on the lake geneva sh*r*line
to make records with a mobile
we didn’t have much time

frank zappa and the mothers
were at the best place around
when some stupid with a flare gun
burned the place to the ground

smoke on the water
a fire in the sky
smoke on the water

they burned down the gambling house
it died with an awful sound
funky claude was running in and out
pulling kids out the ground

when it all was over
we had to find another place
swiss time was running out
it seemed that we would lose the race

smoke on the water
a fire in the sky
smoke on the water

we ended up at the grand hotel
it was empty, cold and bare
and with the rolling truck stones thing just outside
making our music there

with a few red lights and a few old beds
we made a place to sweat
no matter what we get out of this
i know i know we’ll never forget

smoke on the water
a fire in the sky
smoke on the water
