Armenia City In The Sky (John 'Speedy' Keene) Gowmonk, Inc. (BMI)

Recorded and mixed at IBC Studio A, London on October 20, 1967.
Lead vocal by John Keene and Roger Daltrey (through effects filter).

[Written by Pete's former roommate and chauffeur John "Speedy" Keene. This is the second of two times that The Who used a song written specifically for them by a person outside the group. A year later Keene would be part of the Townshend-created group Thunderclap Newman. This track was released as a single in Japan backed with 'Mary Anne With the Shaky Hand.']

If you're troubled and you can't relax
Close your eyes and think of this
If the rumors floating in your head all turn to facts
Close your eyes and think of this

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

If you ever want to lose some time
Just take off, there's no risk
If you ever want to disappear
Just take off, and think of this

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

The sky is glass, the sea is brown
And everyone is upside-down

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

Freak out!
Freak out!
