Pete Townshend – I Want That Thing lyrics

Ruth's radio show

Ruth: Well, would you believe that after my mention of Ray High last week he's been seen out and about in the big city. Until now Ray's been locked away struggling with a follow-up to his last mega-excess. But rumor was he couldn't even open a bottle without a drink inside him. There was talk of a nervous breakdown. He's even got up the nose of his s*** manager. Poor old Rastus Knight now has a challenged coke habit. I've always had a soft spot for Rastus, and I've often seen him looking at it. While I was away in 'Frisco, I hear Ray went into my club and sat at my table. Why thanks Ray, that put an end to happy hour. Why my place anyway, Ray? Nobody there who's anybody cares two filo faxes about peace and love. I heard about you Mr. Stinking - rich, has - been, rodent, drinking vintage Krug as though it was two bob a bottle. I'll be watching out for you.

Free ride to the house of life
Free ride to the house of life
Free ride to the house of life
Free ride to the house of life
Free ride to the house of life
Free ride

I work hard at my job
I save and I save
I know what I deserve
After all that I gave
You know I want that thing
You know I want that thing

Put aside a little money
Almost every day
When I think that I'm close
It just gets further away
You know I want that thing
I want that thing

Free ride to the house of life
I want that thing
Free ride to the house of life
I want that thing
Free ride to the house of life
I want that thing

Don't know if it's truth
Don't know if it's lies
I just can't be aloof
To what you advertise
You know I want that thing
I want that thing

I can't wait
Any longer to choose
If I can't get my own
Gonna have to take yours from youze
I want that thing
I want it, I want it, I really want that thing

Free ride to the house of life-I want that thing
Free ride to the house of life-I want that thing
Free ride to the house of life-I want that thing
Free ride to the house of life-I want that thing
Free ride I wanna free ride

Spinner: I've planned an alternative. I will secretly commandeer one of the Gridlife studios and stage a live rock concert for every single person wearing Grid suits. That's fifty percent of the world's population. The result will be amazing. Everyone who experiences the concert will slip out of their suit and come to the show. They will be drawn to it. This will produce the biggest live concert audience in history.
