Maddy Prior Rollercoaster Lyrics

sponsored links

Singing for supper round the world
I've laughed in the afternoon
I have danced after the pubs have closed
By the bandstand under the moon
I've been drunk and I've been sober
I've been happy and I've been sad
But there never was a tour
Like the one we just had

And the roller coaster rolls round
We all know it's slow going up
But just watch how fast it comes down

Junk food after mid-night
Hotel breakfast no champagne
Coffee quiet moments
And manic backstage games
Flying high on a good night
Racing down the aisles
With the surge of sound and power
Reflecting wicked smiles

And the roller coaster rolls round
We all know it's slow going up
But just watch how fast it comes down

And I head an old lady
With a ghost of a voice
Singing time worn songs
Learnt in childhood
They are graceful heroic songs
In a style out of time
Sung in the only way she knows she could
And they come up fresh as morning dew
But there gems will last
To sparkle in the dark
A magic lantern of the past

And the roller coaster rolls round
We all know it's slow going up
But just watch how fast it comes down
