84 Hell to Pay

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Fra Deep Purple albumet

Eddie var en lenestol revolusjonær; pisket oss alltid inn i et vanvidd av anti-etablering aktivitet. Når jeg sier aktivitet var det mer animert prat, drevet av alkohol og trangen til å imponere våre felles revolusjonære. Eddie var 'bare prat, ingen bukser'. Ved første tengn på trøbbel var han under bordet eller ut døren som en velkjent rotte opp et drenrør. Men han hadde en Che Guevara t-skjorte, en pistrete bart og et hard blikk som gav han en mansik kant over hans påvirkelige klikk. Håret hans var aldri rett da, jeg tror hans 'to toner' kallenavn kom fra hentesveisen; hans bleke skalle vistes gjennom i striper under hans fettete hårtemming ettersom kveldene utviklet seg.

Hell to Pay

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Take pity on two-tone Eddie
His hair was never right
He used to be cool with a glint in his eye
But he lost it overnight
The spinning world is changing things are rearranging
But Eddie says to me
Nothing wrong with the way it was
That's way it's meant to be

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was the battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay


Eddie was a die-hard rebel
In the good old days of way back when
A cigarette was cool and all the kids in school
Could read and count to ten
Everyone said he had a future bright
Of that there was no doubt
He never could make us understand
What the rebellion was all about

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was the battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay


Two-tone Eddie drew up battle plans
For making love not war
Everybody laughed at the fighting in the street
From behind a guarded door
It came to nothing when it all went down
And the band began to play
Another plan, put your head in the sand
Live to fight another day

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was our battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
