Smoke on the Water

Listen to the song 'Smoke on the Water' by the English rock group Deep Purple and complete the gaps missing in the lyrics below while listening. It really is quite amazing how something as everyday as listening to song lyrics can improve overall listening comprehension skills. If you're feeling particularly clever you could try and guess the missing words from their context before you listen!


 

 

We all came  to Montreux
On the   Geneva shoreline
To make records   a mobile
We didn't have much  
Frank Zappa and   Mothers
Were at the best   around
But some stupid   a flare gun
Burned the place to the  
Smoke on the water, fire in the  

They burned   the gambling house
It died with an awful  
Funky Claude was running in and  
Pulling   out the ground
When it all was  
We had to find another  
But Swiss time was running  
It seemed that we would lose the  
Smoke on the water, fire in the  .

We ended up at the grand  
It was empty   and bare
But with the Rolling Stones truck thing   outside
Making our   there
With a few red lights and a few   beds
We made a   to sweat
No matter what we get out of  
I know we'll never  .
Smoke on the water, fire in the  .
