(blackmore/gillan/glover/lord)

Read all about it tell me
Have you heard the news
Captain bob he don't pay no dues
You know he's looking in my window
He's stepping on my toes
Don't want the truth and it goes to show

I got a joker up my sleeve
I know what to believe
It ain't right just because it's in black and
White

Find yourself a hero
Treat him like a friend
You build him up and tear him down again
It don't hold a candle hold it to the light
Check it out is it wrong or right
Is this the news of the world
It's just a pretty girl
She's all the news that's fit to print in
Black and white

Inside information taken down note by note
A silent footstep that's all she wrote
Shit that's all she wrote
No need to worry the baby's gone to bed
Dreaming dirty dreams in black and white
And read
Now i got nothing to fear
Is this the scoop of the year
Headlines on my bathroom wall
In black and white
