Mr.Classic’s Classic Rock Pick of the Day Blue Oyster Cult Buck’s Boogie

Blue Oyster Cult – Live – Buck’s Boogie – 1972

Blue Oyster Cult Buck’s Boogie

On Your Feet or on Your Knees is the first live album by Blue Öyster Cult released on February 27, 1975 by Columbia Records. Each of the band’s first three studio albums is represented by three songs each, two other songs are covers (“I Ain’t Got You”, albeit with modified lyrics, and “Born to Be Wild”), and one (“Buck’s Boogie”) is an original instrumental that remains a staple of the band’s live shows to this day. The 12 songs include performances at the Academy of Music in New York City, the Paramount Theatre in Portland, the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, the Show Palace in Phoenix, the Long Beach Arena, the P.N.E. Coliseum in Vancouver and the Capitol Theatre in New Jersey.

Goering’s on the phone to Freiburg

Says “Willie’s done quite a job”

Hitler’s on the phone from Berlin

Says “I’m gonna make you a star”

My Captain Von Ondine, here’s your next patrol

A flight of English bombers across the canal

After twelve, they’ll all be here

I think you know the job

They hung there dependent from the sky

Like some heavy metal fruit

These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt

Must these Englishmen live that I might die

Must they live that I might die

In a G-load disaster from the rate of climb

Sometimes I’d faint and be lost to our side

But there’s no reward for failure, but death

So watch me in the mirrors, keep me on the glide path

Get me through these radars, no I cannot fail

When my great silver slugs are eager to feed

I can’t fail, no not now

When twenty five bombers wait ripe

They hung there dependent from the sky

Like some heavy metal fruit

These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt

Must these Englishmen live that I might die

Must they live that I might die

Me-262 prince of turbojet, Junker’s Jumo 004

Blasts from clustered R4M quartets in my snout

And see these English planes go burn

Now will you be my witness how red were the skies

When the fortresses flew, for the very last time

It was dark over Westphalia, in April of ’45

They hung there dependent from the sky

Like some heavy metal fruit

These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt

Must these Englishmen live that I might die

Must they live that I might die

Must these Englishmen live that I might die

Junkers Jumo 004 (repeat many times)

Bombers at 12 o’clock high
