"Cannonball" as written by and Richard Davies....
You're tellin' lies, so don't you criticize
Yeah I got used, all messed up and abused
You let me down, with all your runnin' round
Still you pretend and try to call me friend

Don't say a word, I know just what I heard
Yeah you've been loose, you just got no excuse
Just feel my rage, why can't you come of age?
I felt it all, just like a cannonball

Then you got mad, you said that I'm all bad
So what's the use, you lied and that's the truth
You took the key and drove right out on me
I never knew put all my trust in you

Okay, that's it, I'm leaving now, I quit
I was unwise, so don't apologize
I paid the price, for taking your advice
I felt it all, just like a cannonball
Yeah like a cannonball

You can say what you want all day
But I've never been so outraged
I'm washing my hands of you
How could you be so untrue
You know I can't stand no more
You know I can't stand no more
I can't stand no more, can't stand no more, no

    Song MeaningAlthough there have been much debate on what this song is about, some even claim that it's Rick's feelings about Roger's departure, but according to an interview with Rick Davies on French radio, this song is about a less than perfect concert promoter who remain unnamed.

    General CommentOK firstly Supertramp are the best band in the world. But I am not too taken by any of the stuff after Roger's departure. The same could be said that I don't like Roger's material after he left Supertramp. They need to work together, Rick and Rog if their incredible songcrafting talents are to be expressed in the beautiful way they deserve.
    I listen to songs from 'Supertramp' album right through to '...Famous Last Words...' my favourites being Paris and Crime of the Century. The partnership at its best
