As a Trapeze fan, finding lyrics to most of their songs on the internet is quite difficult (if not impossible), and trying to make a transcription of the song's vocals has proven to be sometimes difficult for a non-native english speaker like me.

This is my best attempt so far:

Midnight Flyer - Trapeze - Hot Wire(1974)

  • Verse 1:

    We're all gonna meet there
    It worked out fine
    No stipulations
    We've chosen our minds

    Get down to the good times
    We're gonna have a ball
    Get down to the music
    We'll ride down our falls(?)

  • Verse 2:

    Pull down on the (cherners?)
    Open up your doors
    The world needs love
    So what we waiting for

    Getting right information
    Getting in time
    It won't be easy
    Still we gotta try

  • Chorus:
    Fly, Midnight Flyer
    Fly, Take it Higher (Higher!) x2

Here's what I hear:

Verse 1:

We're all gonna meet there
It worked out fine
No stipulations
We've chosen our minds

Get down to the good times
We're gonna have a ball
And get down to the music
We'll ride on [palls??]

Verse 2:

Pull down on the [churners??]
Open all the doors
The world needs love
So what we waiting for

Getting right information
Getting in time
It won't be easy
Still we gotta try

Chorus: Fly, Midnight Flyer
Fly, Take it Higher (Higher!) x2

There's not much else I can say though as a music producer. The singers just weren't enunciating in a clear enough way sometimes, or the production contributed to the loss of treble clarity that is crucial to understanding sibilant syllables. \'~'/
