Telegram, Pts. 1 & 4
(PART 1 ON YOUR WAY)Nazareth
Sent a telegram today
Tomorrow youЎЇll be on your way
Could be Memphis or L.A.
No questions just get out and play.
Wake up call to catch the plane
You know youЎЇre on the road again
SomeoneЎЇs banginЎЇ in your head
Why did you get so late to bed.
RunninЎЇ late and feelinЎЇ bad
That breakfast was the worst youЎЇve had
Make the gate no time to spare
Before you know youЎЇre in the air.
747 flies us high
Much higher than weЎЇre meant to be
YouЎЇre six miles high but feelinЎЇ down
You wish you could be on the ground.
Find your bags and walk for miles
The customs man is waitinЎЇ there
Immigration cause delay
You wonder if youЎЇll ever play.
Limousine is standinЎЇ by
We get inside and drive a while
F.M. Station soundinЎЇ good
And gettinЎЇ better every mile.
Hotel lobby looks the same
With all the same old girls in town
Press reception takes the day
With all the same old things to say
Need your picture smile this way
And will you tell me what you play
(PART 2 SO YOU WANNA BE A ROCKЎЇNЎЇROLL STAR)
Roger McGuinn/Chris Hillman (COPYRIGHT 1966 TICKSON MUSIC CO. (BMI)
So you wanna be a rock'n'roll star
Just listen now to what I say
Get yourself an electric guitar
and take some time and learn to play.
(PART 3 SOUND CHECK)
Your roadies call to say OK
The soundcheck can get underway
Soundcheckover, had some fun
A waste of time for everyone
Time has come to start the show
It's boogie time for everyone
Check guitars before you go
TheyЎЇre close enough for rock n roll
The lights are low,
The crowd is high,much higher than
They're meant to be
