Nightflight To Venus
by Farian / Kawohl / Jay

Ladies and gentlemen
Welcome aboard to starship Boney M for our first passenger flight to Venus
Ready for countdown: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, ignition, lift off
(Nightflight to Venus, Nightflight to Venus, Nightflight to Venus)

Nightflight to Venus
Way out there in space
Nightflight to Venus
Our new favourite place
Nightflight to Venus
We got the all clear
Nightflight to Venus
The moment is here

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
Nightflight to Venus
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Nightflight to Venus

Ladies and gentlemen, we've had a successful take-off on this first Nightflight to Venus
Our flying time will be 8 hours
We'll be travelling at a speed of 2183 miles per second
That is 7,5 million miles per hour
The distance from Mother Earth to Venus is 16 million miles at this time

To your left you can see the mountains of the moon and right in the center under a huge plastic bubble: The Moon City
The Moontown, if ever there was one, it was like a huge golden diamond Venus ???
As for Venus it took almost 90 years to cool down the planet
From its 500 degrees to the current pleasant 75 degrees and to transform the atmosphere to make it comfortable for earth people

Nightflight to Venus
Way out there in space
Nightflight to Venus
Our new favourite place
Nightflight to Venus
All systems are go
Nightflight to Venus
The sky is aglow

Captain, unidentified object at 8 oclock, 2 million miles away
Stand by for emergency manoeuvre
Object coming closer with the speed of light
We have 8 more seconds
Object coming closer, we have 5 more seconds
Change course by 4 point 6 degrees
Order accepted

That was a close one ladies and gentlemen
A meteor just passed us on its way to the planet
Well you can see even in space traffic is getting heavier all the time

Ladies and gentlemen, in a few minutes we are going to be landing on Venus
Push the button on your left side
The safety mechanism will do the rest for you
We hope you enjoyed the worlds first Nightflight to Venus
Have a good time there

 

Painter Man
by Pickett / Philips

Went to college, studied arts
To be an artist make a start
Studied hard, gettin' my degree
But no one seemed to notice me

Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man
Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man

Tried cartoons and comic books
Dirty postcards could have done
Here was where the money laid
Classic art has had it's day

Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man
Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man

Did adverts for T.V.
Household shops and brands of tea
Labels all around the cans
Who wanna be a painter man

Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man
Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man

La...la...la...la...la...la...
La...la...la...la...la...la...la...

Painter man, painter man
Who wanna be a painter man

Rasputin
by Farian / Reyam / Jay

Hey...

There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow cheeks he was such a lovely dear

He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of extasy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire

Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian queen
It was a shame how he carried on

All versions over 4 minutes next 2 verses & chorus
He ruled the Russian land and never mind the Tsar
But the kasachok he dance really wunderbar
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze

For the queen he was no wheeler dealer though she heard the things he'd done
She believed he was a holy healer who would heal her son

Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian queen
It was a shame how he carried on

But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger for power became known to more and more people the demands to do something about this outrageous man became louder and louder

Hey....

This man just gotta go declered his enemies
But the ladies begged don't you tyr to do it please
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms

Then one night some men of higher standing set a trap they're not to blame
Come to vist us us they kept demanding and he really came

Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian Queen
They put some poison into his wine
Ra Ras Rasputin love of the Russian Queen
He drank it all and said I feel fine
Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian Queen
They didn't quit they wanted his head
Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian Queen
And so they shot him till he was dead

Oh those Russians



 

King Of The Road
by Miller

Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let - 50 cents,
No phone, no pool, no pets,
Ain't got no cigarettes, ah but
Two hours of pushing broom
buys an 8 by 12 four-bit room
He's a man of means by no means
King of the road.

Third box car midnight train
Destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn-out suits and shoes,
Don't pay no union dues.
He smokes old stogies he has found
Short, but not too big around
He's a man of means by no means
King of the road

(He knows) Every engineer on every train
All of their children and all of their names
And every hang-out in every town
Every lock that ain't locked
When no one's around
I say, Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let - 50 cents,
No phone, no pool, no pets, Ain't got no cigarettes
I've got two hours of pushing broom
buys an 8 by 12 four-bit room
He's a man of means by no means
King of the road

King of the road
King of the road
King of the road
