  • We can't all be right
    We can't all be wrong
    It's a long journey
    We travel on
    Gypsies of the night
    Riders of the storm
    Though it's heartbreaking
    We must go on

    [Chorus:]
    Wrong place
    Wrong face
    Somewhere on the road
    Keep playing
    And saying
    Welcome to the show

    Those who laugh the first
    Must cry later they say
    As the stage curtain
    Brings on the girls
    And they surely do well
    For the politicians who sell them
    On TV today
    Makes me uncertain
    Of who runs the world

    [Chorus]
    Wrong place
    Wrong face
    Somewhere on the road
    Keep playing
    And saying
    Welcome to the show

    My friends, all the trends that have gone
    Are as one in the minds of today
    With their eyes open they can't see the signs
    And the moment belongs to the video songs
    Leading nowhere at all
    And the fools talking, the blind lead the blind

    {Chorus]
    Wrong place
    Wrong face
    Somewhere on the road
    Keep playing
    And saying
    Welcome to the show

    We started something
    Now we can't get away from it all Writer/s: LES HOLROYD
