Reply One of my favorite songs along with zoom club. Definately the most underrated rock band. So much emotion in their music. Reply When I was a little boyThey would say to meDon't go in the world and playIt's bad company All they had was child and faithLet him grow and let him waitJust to find out what it was to be free But now I'm over twenty oneGrowing up I've had my funAnd I know it's got to be Baby lying in a wombAre you free or in a tombLet me in,I feel I want to cry. Oh the road is longOh the road is longCome on back, back. Wash your hands and up to bedMind your mannersOr you're deadMind the cars cos you've got school on Monday Put my trust in GodWho is he I know not whatSomething mummy said one Sunday. Maybe love is life but life is notIt's something I need plenty of.Oh! I wish I'd died and never lived a day. Now there's no one near me nowTell me what to do and howTake me back and sing my cares away. Take me let me sing my cares awayOh! the road is thereOh that road is thereCome on back, back. Oh! I'm empty nowRainy pain has left me now.Think of what my people used to say. Black is black and white is whiteWhich to choose and which is rightGuide me to a place where I can stay. Wrap me up and keep me warmHide myself far from the stormSleep and love will keep my mind at rest. Only now I realise what my parents had to try.Love you all and keep you all my life. Oh that road is thereOh the road is thereCome on back, back. Reply I had forgotten Budgie. Having a great time today recalling their wonderful music. Saw them live in LA back in the late 70s (I think). Took a friend who didn't know them at all and he was blown away … appropriately! Reply My alltime Budgie song. Second is Naoleon Bonaparte I&II. Reply ,,,,, great, strong, music like this will never get old and will never die – thanx to people like us. Reply ARCYDZIEŁO Reply Wg mnie ten utwór jest jednym z najlepszych w historii rocka. Można by wymienić może kilka równie znakomitych i to wszystko. Reply One of the better English bands, ive heard Reply Budgie was the shit….Too bad i didnt realize it till i got older but im still jamming to them nowadays.. Reply Este es el grupo de los 70' con éxitos como este, pero nunca fueron populares ,creo que son del agrado de ayer, hoy y siempre ,de los que llevamos el rock en la sangre ,Budgie uno de mis favoritos de siempre!!!!
