We all came out to Montreux
To make records with a mobile
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
But some stupid with a flare gun
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
They burned down the gambling house
Funky Claude was running in and out
When it all was over
But Swiss time was running out
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
We ended up at the Grand Hotel
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
With a few red lights and a few old beds
No matter what we get out of this
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
