Claudie
Status Quo Lyrics


It's so long since I sang songs to you
I forget all the words I once knew
I could look back
But I can't waste the time

Did it matter
They sometimes didn't rhyme
It's so long since I sang songs for you

It's so long since you smile just for me
Now your smile's just an old use to be
Does it matter
That I can take the time

Would you rather
I write you one more line
Can my songs once again be for you

Claudie made a fool out of me
Made me find another place to be
I've been living alone
In a house that wasn't my home
With Claudie is the place I want to be

When I left did you think of me crying
Did you care that I felt I was dying
I pretended
That I don't give a damn
All along
I've know what I really am
I'm a fool little Claudie just for you

Claudie made a fool out of me
Made me find another place to be
I've been living alone
In a house that wasn't my home
With Claudie is the place I want to be

Marguerita Time is a horrible piece of an abomination. It is revolting and not a QUO song.
Bernie Frost and Francis should've recorded it and other crap songs on their own music project, not on QUO albums.

Tieu you don't know the chord progressions used in Country Rock or the melodies that Claudie is laden with.
If you ask Francis he would say, that, YES it is a Country Rock song and also in his TOP 10 fave QUO songs.
I can debate this topic until the next ICE AGE.
There are also 2 songs on the WHATEVER YOU WANT album with very strong Country Rock sounds.
It's an unmistakable and unavoidable truth.
Wildside of Life was originally a Country song which QUO turned into a DISCO ROCK SONG and they also recorded a ROCK version which is on the Bonus Tracks on the re-released BLUE FOR YOU album.
ACCIDENT PRONE is also a DISCO song, yes, listen to the Drum beat and that's what constitutes the type/genre of music it is.
There are others, though I couldn't be bothered typing them all.
There's nothing QUO couldn't do, which is ironic considering what their name means in Latin.
The critics can go and get...................
I love this band with so much passion and intensity, they are the most honest band of all time.

Oh man, come on, seriously, the Psych Era was amazing, brilliant, fantastic and far out.
At Paradise Flats, you won't come back, no, you won't come back.
Sunny Cellophane Skies.

Superb album all the star’s had aligned for them at this point

John Riley

That "Yeah, yeah, yeah!" at 3:54 still gives me chills.

Paul Norton

This is the only song for which I have ever learned to play the lead break.

Nicco Arcadia

Hard Driving power rock and roll! One of the loudest bands I ever saw at concert! My ears are still ringing!

Oscar G.

Lucky you bro!

María Hornos Miller

Finally I've found you!! My day's done. Thaks a lot for sharing this piece of my heart ♬♫❤❤🎸

Raymond Gill

Love the band/song/lineup/album and bassline. thank you for posting.

Armando Hermoza

One of their best albums! Great rock and roll in the tradition of Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones.

Funky Fonc

You have good taste Signor Hermoza ! As far as I'm concerned, I think that Chuck Berry, along with Status Quo, is underestimated.
Elvis Presley was perhaps the King of Rock, but doubtlessly Chuck Berry was the GOD OF ROCK !
May The Spirit of Rock stand by you.

Paulo Reis

Maravilhoso e verdadeiro Rock and Roll inglês ... Jamais serão esquecidos ..
