some = all / the effluxion of time

42 Silver Tongue

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album Bananas

I suppose this is the musical equivalent of kissing the blarney stone with more affection than is considered appropriate.

Silver tongue

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I'm standing here on a moving station
All the world is travelling by
To strange outlandish destinations
There they go, I wonder why

I may be crazy
But I'm not stupid
I get along
I use my silver tongue

You know I can dream in any language
Flying in my magic bed
And I don't need to work my passage
All I do is use my head

I may be crazy
But I'm not stupid
Sometimes I ramble
Then I'm lucid
I might seem lazy
But I'm hurting no-one
I get along
I use my silver tongue

I know exactly what you're thinking
But you don't know what's in my mind
You went too fast and now you're sinking
Because you forgot to read the signs
