Alright
Here we go again

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you

There's so much that we need to share
So send a smile and show you care

Alright, alright

I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my life for you
So give a little bit
Oh, give a little bit of your time to me

See the man with the lonely eyes
Oh, take his hand, you'll be surprised

Oh, take it

Come along
Come on

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I give a little bit
I give a little bit of my life for you

Now's the time that we need to share
So, find yourself, we're on our way back home

Going home
Don't you need, don't you need to feel at home?
Oh, yeah, we gotta see

You gotta get a feeling
You come along too

You can come along too, yeah
Come a—, come a—, come a—, come along

Cha, cha, cha
Ooh, yeah, come along too
Yeah, come along too, yeah
Sing Betty Lou

Come along too
What a long ride
Come a long way
Ooh, sing it tonight

Check out Paris - their live album. Every song a classic.
When I was very young I always thought this was Peter Frampton for some reason.
"School" on Crime of the Century is just fantastic. 
man, that sax solo...so sweet and smooth.

Interesting. I was one of the frist 7 votes and each of the votes was a different rating. Is this song really that polarizing?



That's quite common. But you'll then also often see it turns into a bell curve like this one in the end ;)
Right up there with CAMEL as one of the best of the PROG ROCK ERA
Great! Overplayed on the radio when it came out! Much better NOW in FLAC w/ great studio phones, amp & DAC!  Thanx RP!

They didn't seem "overlooked" from where I was either - it seemed like they were constantly played on the radio from the mid-1970s to the early '80s.
I always thought this song didn't "belong" on this album. Much like "Money" on DSOTM, it stands out as an obvious hit single that doesn't mesh with the style of the other songs on the record.

You probably have it at home.

"The lead singer"? They have two lead singers and they split the vocals depending on which one wrote the song. This one is Roger Hodgson, the other is Rick Davies.

To hear Rick, listen to "Bloody Well Right".

Nice to see the song nudging upwards, now a 7. Hopefully my 9 helped.


Seven years late, now a 7.7. Just about matches the 8 I gave it. 
Always just like finger nails on a blackboard. A very unfortunate flashback to the late ’70’s….

Hard to say whether this or Crime was their pinnacle.  Probably not Breakfast.


Crisis What Crisis also has some great tracks...ah the 70s

I sure do, excellent condition.  Won't part with it.

Great memories of High Life in High School! Sure love the cover photo, too — Indian Peaks, Colorado in the background! from behind the old Caribou Studio...
Coming out of the haze of the 70's is Supertramp!!!
 
A guilty pleasure from the 70s.  Sounds pretty good!
Good song, not their best though.
Meh.
"Sing Betty Louuuuuuuu"

Is that what he sings?

This song is so good for my Budweiser drinking, capitalist loving ears!
Supertramp at their mawkish worst.
Summer of 77, driving around in my Chevy Van....

Aw, man! I was hoping for the Goo-Goo Dolls version. (just kidding)

Rating's moving up a little. The haters got on here first.
Average of 6.5??  Always gorgeous!! {#Cheers}
