Bang your head

January 15, 2023

The theme this week at Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday is Metal. My song is Bloodsucker from 1970’s Deep Purple in Rock album. Deep Purple is said to be one of the big three pioneers of metal music (the other two being Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin) and they were my gateway band into hard rock and metal.

Got a black breast Chinese eyes
Got an English brain that’s gonna make me wise
Got a long story that I want to tell
To a rhythm that I know so well
Really got a lot of loving that I want to give
Baby I’m a mystery but you know I got to live
I tried another, she didn’t want to know
Ahhh, no, no, no

Take a hold now if you can
Take a lesson from a hard loving man
I’m a long way from where I want to go
Guess I’ll stay a while, I really love you so
How’s about another sip of all the wine you’ve got
Take a tip from me and give it here, I’ll drink the lot
I’m not a winey, I’m putting on a show
Ahhh, no, no, no

You really grab me but I gotta move
Before they know I’m here and spread the news
Maybe in while when I move around
I can find a way to pay you back your twenty pounds
Really got a lot of loving that I want to give
Baby I’m a mystery but you know I got to live
I tried another, she didn’t wanna know
Ahhh, no, no, no

    At one time deep Purple was said to be the loudest band in the world. I know a lot of their hits, but this one was new to me Michael. Thanks for sharing your music.
