Paper Plane
Status Quo Lyrics


Riding on a big white butterfly
I turned my back away towards the sky
I closed my eyes to look for something
Saw myself as really nothing
Then I realised my butterfly
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my butterfly

Riding on a long blue paper plane
Getting seasick, sorry once again
Landing strip is getting nearer
Hope the foglifts, make it clearer
Then I realized my paper plane
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my paper plane

Riding in a three grand Deutche car
A to be is often very far
Home is near, but such a long way
Legs and heads all feel the wrong way
Then I realized my Deutche car
Is only there to get me somewhere
Even so I really do care
Would you like to ride my Deutche car

Riding on a big white butterfly
I turned my back away towards the sky
I closed my eyes to look for something
Saw myself as really nothing
Then I realized my butterfly
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my butterfly?
Riding on a long blue paper plane
Getting seasick, sorry once again
Landing strip is getting nearer
Hope the fog lifts, makes it clearer
Then I realized my paper plane
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my paper plane?
Riding in a three grand Deutsche car
A to B is often very far
Home is near, but such a long way
Legs and heads all feel the wrong way
Then I realized my Deutsche car
Is only there to get me somewhere
Even so I really do care
Would you like to ride my Deutsche car?

I was born in1963, and my first Album from Status Quo was "Rockin´ all over the world". Maybe I was 13 or 14 years old... As I heard "Let´s ride" and "You don´t own me" the first time, I knew, that I would always love this music and this band!
Today I´m 57 years old - I like AC-DC, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and so else... - but I LOVE Status Quo!!!
3 or 4 chords - doesn´t matter: The sound is simply "geil" (our word in germany for something extraordinary, wonderful, incredible nice and super...!)!!!
Everyday in the morning when i drive to work, i put a cassette with "Best of Status Quo" in my cassette player in my car and i hear this music loud, loud, loud...!
Sometimes i get sad when i must think on Rick!


Rick Parfitt - I love you forever and i´ll never forget you!!!
R.I.P. and a good life in heaven!

From 1971 it was foolish to go on stage after
STATUS QUO had played!!!!!!!!!
THE FRANTIC FOUR are with out a doubt, the best and greatest Rock band to walk the Planet!!!!!!
Slade are very good, very good, though they only had a small window in time when they produced top quality songs.
1971 - 1974 at a stretch, if you're lucky.
1984's Run Run Away was sub - standard, sorry.
1973's Gudby T' Jane is one of the greatest examples of how to play Drums and Bass.
From memory it's on a red record label withh Polydor being the record label.
Chuck Berry's ' My Ding - A - Ling ' kept it at No.2 on the Charts in the UK.
The QUO boys, even Rossi, are such humble and modest guys that they have supported their good mates in Slade, Queen and Deep Purple and many other top bands because they know that..................
Oh, what was that massive gust of wind?
That was THE QUO blowing another band off stage!!!



Alan Strom

C'mon Gareth, 3 heads are better than 2. Woof! LOL!!!!!!!
" This shits's hot stuff, weird....Sheriff's comin'"
That's at the beginning of " What to do" from On The Level.
Luckily, the gunja wasn't too strong in 1971 and QUO made the best Stoner album in History.
Which was " DOG OF TWO HEAD "
" She was a big one I met at a gig one, a Mean, Mean Girl"
In a Hundred years time, History will look back and realise that
STATUS QUO were and are the most influential, significant and important, genuine Rock band of all time.
To say that I love them, would be the biggest under statement of all time.

No gimmicks or crap - just a band pumping out good music.

Pumping indeed. Saw them live in Sweden '76. A real blast.

caribstu

The only band to get fourty years of rockin out of just three chords

Augustus404

Heard at one concert from a fellow fan.
We're not cool,
We're not trying to be cool,
We don't wanna be cool.
12 bars, 3 chords and PLAY IT LOUD

Quo have already clarified to the whole world what real rock music means. FF Quo has produced the best Rock music ever!

Andrew Matthews

4 blokes. One lead guitar, one rhythm, one bass, drum kit. Stack of Marshall amps. 👍🇦🇺 Nothing beats this !

Tim Macpherson

@King Rick 2 guitars does NOT mean 1 rhythm & 1 lead, I don't know who told you that. 2 guitars can work together in many different ways. I am a musician

King Rick

What do you mean by that? They have two guitars, I know it doesn’t necessarily have to be like that, but likely one was playing lead, and the other rhythm

King Rick

Plus some raw talent!
