Rhythm Machine

This song is by Bad Company and appears on the album Desolation Angels (1979) and on the compilation album The 'Original' Bad Co. Anthology (1999).

I'm a rhythm machine, you know what I mean
I'm a rhythm machine, you know what I mean

I got time, running through my head in bed
Instead of sleep, I get licks instead
I'm a rhythm machine, you know what I mean

I'm a music man, I play the blues whenever I can
I'm a music man, I play the blues whenever I can

I get a fat backbeat, instead of food when I eat
The ticking of a clock gets me out of my seat
I'm a music man, I play the blues whenever I can

I herd "Crosscut Saw" before I was four
"Smokestack Lightning" had me crawling across the floor
The Beach Boys didn't get me, but Fats Domino did
I've been keeping time ever since I was a kid

I'm a music machine, don't you know what I mean?
I'm rhythm machine, he knows what I mean, -owe!

Boom boom.

Yeah, yeah.

Yeah, yeah-eah...

I'm a rhythm machine,
I'm a rhythm machine,
I'm a rhythm machine,
Don't you know what I mean?
I'm a music man,
Yeah and I play the blues whenever I can

Hey, play the blues then
Oh, yeah, yeah,
Play it for kings and queens
Yeah, yeah, I'm a music man
I'm a rhythm machine...
