10 'Bad Attitude'

(Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord) from the Deep Purple album 'The House of Blue Light'

I can't remember exactly what was going through my mind, or Roger's, at the time, (sounds like another problem with Moronica) but it does sum up my approach to life: Pretty easy going but I don't like being pushed around; just like almost everyone I know.

It's not really relevant to the lyrics, but the video for this song is my personal favourite of the few studio shoots I've done with DP.

Bad Attitude

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord)

Take a look at
These dirty hands

Take a look at this face, these blazing eyes
Do you see me as a broken man
Tell me
Are you really that blind

You got yourself a load of trouble now
You got yourself a bad deal
You say I've got a bad attitude
How d'you think I feel

You got me locked in a paper cage
You think I'm chained up but I'm just tied down
Step aside get out of my way
I won't hurt you

I had enough being pushed around

You got yourself a load of trouble now
You got yourself a bad deal
You talk about a bad attitude
How d'you think I feel

Don't want a number
I got a name
Take a look at my face
Talk about a bad attitude
Things have got to change
