"What's Goin' on Here" as written by and Coverdale Blackmore....
Roll me over slowly, I've been drinkin' all night
Help me make a move, I can't stand the light
Wake me, shake me, don't slam the door
I ain't been so bad, I just can't recall
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame
Lyin' on the floor I can't remember her name
I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

Went downtown, had a long way to go
How I got there, well, I don't know
Found myself sittin' in a west side bar
Tried to leave but I could not go far
High class woman try'n to give me a line
Should have left early when I felt so fine
I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

When they closed up the bar, you know, they left me for dead
I can't remember a thing I said
Must have called the police to take me away
They said, "Forty days", now I've got to pay
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame
Lyin' on the floor I can't remember my name
I can't get together while they're messin' with me
Keep on lookin' round, tell me where can I be
I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

    General CommentWow, no comments?

    Seems pretty straight-forward to me; the guy's gotten too drunk, hooked up with an "old flame" and realised the mistake he's made the next day, hungover and wanting to escape.
