"Hungry Daze" as written by and Ritchie/glover Blackmore....
In a dark and sweaty room in '69
Tables turning
Dancing girls, silly girls, all kinds of girls
And it was loud
Tuning up to madness in the back room
Candles burning
Present the Stinking Hippy and throw the
Naked thunder to the crowd
In the Hungry Daze

The long and lonely highway drags along
It's going nowhere
Sickness and disease and mad
Corruption
Something's going wrong
The mountain's getting cold and lonely
The trees are bare
We all came out to Montreux
But that's another song
You've heard it all before
In hungry daze

Along the Mountain Road to do some
Drinking
And now we're mobile again
Different girls, laughing girls, forever
Girls
And it's so loud
The crew have lost again
They are beaten men
The winning team united
Living for the crowd
These are the hungry daze

    General CommentHungry Daze is about the pioneering days of Deep Purple in the early 70's, during the In Rock, Fireball, and Machine Head era.

    My InterpretationI always interpreted this song as being a reference to weed...
    You know, when you smoke too much, you just have to eat, and get really dizzy?
    Hungry Daze.
