Emerson, Lake & Palmer Lyrics


The seeds of ELP were sown in 1969, when both The Nice
(which featured Keith Emerson on keyboards) and King
Crimson (which featured Greg Lake on bass and vocals) did a
few shows together. Both bands had been at the forefront of
the British rock scene.

The Nice had enjoyed several hits, but were known more for
its wild stage show that was a showcase for Keith Emerson,
who had been tagged a keyboard wizard and "the Jimi Hendrix
of the Hammond organ." They were just beginning to build a
huge following in the United States. King More...

The lyrics I learned in the 1960's | Reviewer: anon
    ------ About the song Show Me the Way to Go Home performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Indicate direction to my jungle bungalow
I'm fatigued and desire to retire
I indulged in a beverage 60 minutes ago
And it traveled straight to my cerebellum
Regardless where I perambulate
Terra firma, oceana, or atmospheric vapor
You can always hear me chanting my melody
Indicate direction to my jungle bungalow

This is how I learned it:
Indicate the way to my domain
I'm fatigued and desire to retire
I had a little sip sixty minutes ago and it went right to my cerebellum
Where ever I may perambulate
On terra firma, agua or on H2O
You can always hear me vocalizing this refrain
Indicate the way to my domain.
It has been around a long time - we used to sing it when my kids were little and my "baby" just turned 50!!!

    ------ About the song Tarkus performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

I was fully impressed by ELP from the first album. However, I had a couple of the Nice albums previously (Emerson) and of course the King Crimson (Lake) albums. I saw ELP in Chicago twice,for the Tarkus tour (Uriah Heep was the front band!) and the Brain Salad Surgery Tour.

I had thought that Brain Salad Surgery was their best. It is still a great album, but I have been just recently rediscovering Tarkus. I think I have changed my mind.... Tarkus is now my favorite of ELP!!!

Hallowed Be Thy Name Review | Reviewer: Champion
    ------ About the song Hallowed Be Thy Name performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

This song butchers the sacred Lord's Prayer of my Christian faith. Listening to this song, being the Christ-follower that I am, makes me sick. The first time I listened to it, I thought it might be a Christian song. Mistake #1! Within the first 10 seconds, I could feel evil in the room. Don't listen to this song! The only reason people like it is because Satan is hovering around you tempting you with it, making it sound like a fun song. I'll admit, it sounds like a fun song. But, as children of the one true King, we have be above Satan. Granted, he is powerful. But we serve one who is more powerful than Satan and all his demons and spirits. In fact, God is all-powerful. And with his help, we can overcome this battle.

Lyrics second verse | Reviewer: Sarah
    ------ About the song Show Me the Way to Go Home performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

I learned the second verse to be:
Direct me the route to my residence, I's fatigued and desire to retire. Cause i had a little swig bout an hour ago and it's gone right to my cranium. Where ever I may isolate, Where ever I may perambulate, you can always hear me vocalizin this diddy. direct me the route to my residence. My Dad use to sing this all the time. He was born in 1919 and was and Eagle Scout in Virginia

One of the Best albums of all time | Reviewer: Robert O'Dell
    ------ About the song Tarkus performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

This was one of the first albums that I ever bought. Saw ELP in Mobile in 1971. No one was ever better! Long years after the original Cotillion(SP?)albums were all gone and it was only on the crappy Atlantic jobbers I was in a music store in Houston and noticed one copy with an "over label". Suspected it as an original and rushed to the counter to buy. It was!; and still in mint condition. What a prize!!!!

    ------ About the song Show Me the Way to Go Home performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Indicate the way to my abode
I'm fatigued and I want to retire
I had some liquid refreshments sixty minutes ago
And they've gone right to my cerebellum
no matter where I perambulate
On land, or sea or agitated water
You will always hear me singing this melody
Indicate the way to my abode
