(PART 1 ON YOUR WAY)Nazareth
Sent a telegram todayTomorrow you’ll be on your wayCould be Memphis or L.A.No questions just get out and play.
Wake up call to catch the planeYou know you’re on the road againSomeone’s bangin’ in your headWhy did you get so late to bed.Runnin’ late and feelin’ badThat breakfast was the worst you’ve hadMake the gate no time to spareBefore you know you’re in the air.
747 flies us highMuch higher than we’re meant to beYou’re six miles high but feelin’ downYou wish you could be on the ground.
Find your bags and walk for milesThe customs man is waitin’ thereImmigration cause delayYou wonder if you’ll ever play.Limousine is standin’ byWe get inside and drive a whileF.M. Station soundin’ goodAnd gettin’ better every mile.
Hotel lobby looks the sameWith all the same old girls in town
Press reception takes the dayWith all the same old things to sayNeed your picture smile this wayAnd will you tell me what you play
