"Speed King" as written by and Jon/paice Lord....
Good Golly, said little Miss Molly
when she was rockin' in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
hen she was rockin' to the east and west
Lucille was oh so real when she didn't do her daddies will
Come on baby, drive me crazy--do it, do it

I'm a speed king you go to hear me sing
I'm a speed king see me fly

Saturday night and I just got paid
Gonna fool about ain't gonna save
Some people gonna rock some people gonna roll
Gonna have a party to save my soul
Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Gonna rock and roll down to New Orleans

    General CommentCover of a Deep Purple song off the album "In Rock". Fear really doesn't add much to their covers in my opinion (with the exception of Metal Gods) but they are solid. I remember on the liner notes of "In Rock", Deep Purple listed Speed King as "Some root resown". Basically a mix up of lyrics from 50's rock music.
