Smoke On The Water Lyrics

Songwriters: Blackmore, Ritchie; Gillan, Ian; Glover, Roger; Lord, Jon; Paice, Ian;

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time

Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground

When it all was over
We had to find another place
Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky,
Smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there

With a few red lights, a few old beds
We made a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

I was a kid when I first heard this song ... we were on vacation at Branson lake & my older siblings wore the game-room juke box OUT to it

Are these the lyrics of a cover of this song by Killers (band of ex-Iron Maiden siger Paul Di'Anno)? That cover rocks btw.

With the slurred delivery of the vocalist (was it Blackmore? Ian Pace?) I wonder how many, or few, people ever figured out what this (admittedly great) song was all about. Thanks for helping me out
