We all came out to Montreux

On the Lake Geneva shoreline

To make records with a mobile

We didn't have much time

Frank Zappa and the Mothers

Were at the best place around

But some stupid with a flare gun
                 Gb      Ab
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky

They burned down the gambling house

It died with an awful sound

A funky Claude was running in and out

Pulling kids outa the ground

When it all was over

We had to find another place
                   Gb       Ab
But Swiss time was running out
                        Gb        Ab

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
             Gb        Ab
It was empty cold and bare

But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
           Gb     Ab
Making our music there
       Gb       Ab         Gb       Ab
With a few red lights, a few old beds
          Gb        Ab
We made a place to sweat

No matter what we get out of this
                     Gb        Ab
