Someone's gotta hold tonight
Someone's gotta roll tonight
Someone's got a wed
Action will be red
Why d'ya wanna worry
Ah you're gonna knock 'em dead
Oh yeah

Someone's gonna show tonight
Someone's gotta go tonight
Someone roll your blind
Someone turn your mind
Someone lift your eyes up
And lean in towards the light

**So glad to see you here
So glad you could come yeah
So glad to see you hear
Carry on, carry on
Yeah yeah

Ah we've opened up tonight
Well in time to make the flight
Aircraft is standing
On the runway
Engine nervously waiting
For something to bite
Yeah yeah

Got to roll tonight
You gotta roll tonight
Some have got it bad
Some have got to do it
You got it better and
There's nothing to it
No no no no

Repeat **

***We're open tonight for fun

With 25 albums of pop music, 5 of classical – a total of around 500 songs – released over the course of more than half a century, Paul McCartney's career, on his own and with Wings, boasts an incredible catalogue that's always striving to free itself from the shadow of The Beatles. The stories behind the songs, demos and studio recordings, unreleased tracks, recording dates, musicians, live performances and tours, covers, events: Music Is Ideas Volume 1 traces McCartney's post-Beatles output from 1970 to 1989 in the form of 346 song sheets, filled with details of the recordings and stories behind the sessions. Accompanied by photos, and drawing on interviews and contemporary reviews, this reference book draws the portrait of a musical craftsman who has elevated popular song to an art-form.
