Letra de The Riff

I met Mr.Death this morning
He offered me a ride.
I said I think I’m not quite ready yet
To travel by your side
“Practice what you preach”
Then said the count of shadowlands.
“It doesn’t hurt to take a peek”
He grinned and grabbed my hand.
I sat in the leather seat
of Chevy van.
The motor screamed like a pack of rats
In a frying pan.

The head lights were shooting sparks
And the tyres spinning flames
“Well, allrighty then”
He said and opened up his case

The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out THE RIFF

“He’s written hits
bUT letely he has not”
So the devil’s out of touch
And he can not smell a hit

The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out THE RIFF
OHH YEAH THE RIFF

I woke up and the van was upside down
My body bleeds.
We mus have crashed right off the road
And Death could barely speak
He said, “Listen you gotta take my place
I’m leaving office soon”
I said, “I’m sorry dude, I’m kinda busy
But tell you what: I’ll take the tune”
And it goes like this…!

The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out THE RIFF
The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out THE RIFF
He cranked out THE RIFF
He cranked out THE RIFF
He cranked out THE RIFF
He cranked ouT the…
