40 House of Pain

(Bradford, Gillan)
From the Deep Purple album Bananas

Mike Bradford wrote this song, and my contribution was very small. Just a few words here and there, as well as the title... which sounds like a tribute to the management, although the true derivation is something I can never reveal.

House of Pain

(Bradford, Gillan)

Have you ever had a woman that could make you crazy
Have you ever had a woman that could drive you mad
Have you ever had a woman give you so much trouble
And the best lovin' you ever had

My friends all say I'm losing it big time
But I know where I've got to go
I'm going back there again
I'm going back there again
I'm going back there again
Back to the house of pain

Have you ever had a rock that just keeps on rollin'
Have you ever seen a train comin' down the track
Have you ever jumped into the cold, cold river
And know there's no turning back

My friends all say I'm crazy, baby
But I know where I must go
I'm going back there again
I'm going back there again
I'm going home
Back to the house of pain

Have you ever had a weight that was much too heavy
Have you ever had a burden that was yours alone
Have you ever spent a night when you kept on waiting
Staring at the telephone

My friends all say I'm crazy
But I know where I've got to go
I'm going back there again
I'm going back there again
I'm going back to my woman
Back to the house of pain
