Status Quo

And you wont know how it can feel

To status quo–oh–oh

Who wants to be like the rest
And deny the best that I’m meant for
I will show–oh–oh
The status quo–oh–oh
Who wants to be normal
I’ll never conform
I will be content to resent the status

I’ll kick down the walls around me

They don’t know how strong I am
I’m not defined by boundaries
They will never understand
I’m so much more….

Who cares about being another pipe dreamer
Stuck on the bottom floor
And I know–oh–oh
It’s time to go—oh—oh

So maybe I gotten everything that I want

But I think that I might’ve made it so
When I said no, no, no

Quooo—oh—oh—-oh!

I’m gonna do everything I can

To always be a Starship Ranger
It’s everything

Under The Influence

Chords and lyrics for Under The Influence by Status Quo

 
On a train to  
G 
nowhere, in another nightmare
 
In a dream about falling for someone and  
E 
taking 
 
her
 
back to my r
A 
oom
 
Tangled up in her hair and believing  
D 
everything 
 
goes
 
and then anything more is al
G 
right
 
On a road to  
G 
somewhere, where it goes I don’t care
 
but it keeps on winding and  
E 
winding and winding a
A 
way
 
Sitting next to me are lovely seno
D 
ritas
 
Reality way in the back of my  
G 
mind
 
I’m under the  
C 
influence I  
D 
find it’s  
C 
all in my  
D 
mind
 
and under the  
C 
influence the  
D 
blind will lead the  
G 
blind
 
Thunder and  
C 
lightning in my  
D 
head but  
C 
only in b
D 
ed
 
I’m under the  
C 
influence of  
D 
something from the  
G 
blue
 
What the hell will  
G 
 
do
 
Will I be breaking the  
E 
ice and falling t
A 
hrough?
 
Found a new a
D 
migo to help me get my reality  
G 
right
 
I’m under the  
C 
influence I  
D 
find it’s  
C 
all in my  
D 
mind
 
and under the  
C 
influence the  
D 
blind will lead the
