STEVE HARLEY: (I Believe) Love's A Prima Donna

0:00:520:00:56

# I should say by the way that you're acting today

0:01:000:01:03

# I can tell by the sigh in your eye

0:01:030:01:06

# I can sure understand By the palm of your hand

0:01:060:01:10

# That you know I'm so hot I could fry

0:01:100:01:13

# Because I've chased you, embraced you and turned round and faced you

0:01:130:01:17

# Crowned you the truth of my youth

0:01:170:01:20

# But you give me the line In the words of our time

0:01:200:01:23

# It's like living a stew That's what most lovers do

0:01:230:01:28

# Escaping the sun There's nowhere you can run

0:01:280:01:34

# Love's a prima donna too

0:01:440:01:50

# I should have guessed by the rest of the men that you've blessed

0:01:530:01:57

# I'm only an eye for an eye

0:01:570:02:00

# But you wanted a part of my innocent heart

0:02:000:02:03

# I was only your ship in the night

0:02:030:02:07

# I should have knew, should have knew I was out just for you

0:02:070:02:10

# I believe in the power of the night

0:02:100:02:13

# But like a fool I was had Now it's driving me mad

0:02:130:02:16

# I was only a prize In your libertine eyes

0:02:160:02:20

# I had it coming to me I was too late to see

INSTRUMENTAL AND HARMONIES

0:02:460:02:50

# I could fight with the might Of a thief in the night

0:03:210:03:25

# I could kick I could tear at your hair

0:03:250:03:28

# I could break you in two Like a man ought to do

0:03:280:03:32

# But the woman I see Has a right to be free

0:03:320:03:35

# And the woman I need Is a mischievous breed

0:03:350:03:38

# Don't wanna live in a stew That's what most lovers do

0:03:380:03:42

# It's like escaping the sun There's nowhere you can run

0:04:530:04:57

# Just the brush of your lips

0:04:570:05:00

# And I call out your name

0:05:000:05:04

# Then I rest in your arms

0:05:040:05:08

Gonna Get It Right and here we have the Climax Blues Band!

0:20:520:20:55

# Time was drifting This rock had got to roll

0:21:050:21:10

# So I hit the road And made my getaway

0:21:100:21:14

# Restless feeling Really got a hold

0:21:140:21:19

# I started searching For a better way

0:21:190:21:23

# And I kept on looking for a sign In the middle of the night

0:21:260:21:30

# But I couldn't see the light

0:21:300:21:32

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:21:320:21:35

# I kept on looking for a way To take me through the night

0:21:350:21:39

# Couldn't get it right Couldn't get it right

0:21:390:21:44

# Philly fever made me feel all right

0:21:490:21:54

# But I must admit It got the best of me

0:21:540:21:59

# Gettin' down so deep I could've drowned

0:21:590:22:03

# Now I can't get back The way I used to be

0:22:030:22:09

# So I kept on looking for a sign In the middle of the night

0:22:100:22:14

# Couldn't get it right Couldn't get it right

0:22:230:22:28

# New York City took me with the tide

0:22:470:22:52

# And I nearly died from hospitality

0:22:520:22:57

# Left me stranded Took away my pride

0:22:570:23:01

# Just another no-account fatality

0:23:010:23:06

# I kept on looking for a sign In the middle of the night

0:23:080:23:12

# But I couldn't see the light

0:23:120:23:14

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:23:140:23:17

# Kept on looking for a way To take me through the night

0:23:170:23:21

# Couldn't get it right Couldn't get it right

0:23:210:23:26

# I kept on looking for a sign In the middle of the night

0:23:260:23:30

# But I couldn't see the light

0:23:300:23:32

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:23:320:23:35

# Kept on looking for a way To take me through the night. #

# Where you can hear the country song from far

0:24:260:24:31

# And someone play the honky-tonk guitar

0:24:340:24:38

# Where all the lights Will go out one by one

0:24:420:24:47

# The people join the song

0:24:470:24:51

# And the wind takes it away

0:24:510:24:55

# Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea

0:24:570:25:03

# And lovers found the place They like to be

0:25:050:25:10

# How many times before The song was ending

0:25:130:25:19

# Love and understanding

0:25:190:25:23

# Everywhere around

0:25:230:25:26

# Mississippi

0:25:290:25:36

# I'll remember you

0:25:370:25:42

# Whenever I should go away

0:25:440:25:48

# I'll be longing for the day

0:25:480:25:52

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:25:520:25:57

# Mississippi

0:26:000:26:06

# You'll be on my mind

0:26:080:26:14

# Every time I hear this song

0:26:160:26:20

# Mississippi roll along

0:26:200:26:24

# Until the end of time

0:26:250:26:28

# Now the country song Forever lost its soul

0:26:360:26:41

# When the guitar player Turned to rock 'n' roll

0:26:440:26:49

# And every time When summer nights are falling

0:26:520:26:58

# I always will be calling

0:26:580:27:02

# Dreams of yesterday

0:27:020:27:05

# Mississippi

0:27:080:27:14

# I'll remember you

0:27:160:27:21

# Whenever I should go away

0:27:230:27:27

# I'll be longing for the day

0:27:270:27:31

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:27:310:27:36

# Mississippi

0:27:390:27:45

# You'll be on my mind

0:27:470:27:53

# Every time I hear this song

0:27:550:27:59

# Mississippi roll along

0:27:590:28:03

# Until the end of time

0:28:030:28:07

# Every time I hear this song

0:28:100:28:14

# Mississippi roll along

0:28:140:28:19

# Until the end of time. #
