Dead or Alive
by Deep Purple



Don't turn off the light
You might draw the Queen of Spades
Don't shut the door
You don't need to be alone
I won't bring you no food
There might be some poison in your meat
I've got to know

Are you dead or alive
Don't shut the door
Are you dead or alive
Dead or alive
Pick your window you're leaving

Don't look in the mirror
With a dollar up your face
You've got money to burn
You're cheap at half the price
Oh don't powder your nose
Don't blow your brains just for the the crack
I've got to know

Are you dead or alive
Just for the crack
Are you dead or alive
Dead or alive
Pick your window you're leaving

You're running so fast
But you know you're standing still
I'm afraid of your shadow
And the knife in it's hand
You're dancing with death
To the tune of the dealer
And he don't care
Don't give a toss
Don't want to know

If you're dead or alive
Don't want to know
If you're dead or alive
Dead or alive
Pick your window you're leaving
