Track Name: Queen Slipper
Somebody shoot me while I’m happy
Your name can arch your sweatshirt
If that ain’t nice, what is?
All this noise about yr boys, it gags me
Bad teenage moustache
I’m so sick, so sick of all these stars
So what, so what rhymes with girls and cars?
Kinnison, can I have some of what you’re on?
And what’s it done to my song?
The modern Prometheus like nobody’s business
The modern Prometheus like nobody’s business
The modern Prometheus like nobody’s business
Track Name: Slave Lay-By
Lovejoy, babyshark, is that yr U.F.O. outside?
She’s convincingly cruel
I’m convinced of it now, but I got in for the ride
So this is your idea of a small town
You’d better ring off now
My erudite companion
It’ll take all day to get the smell off
My hidden agenda
There’s something in the air
You can always go
There’s plenty left of me here
To get the go-by when you’re undone
Fooling with you
Track Name: First Tycoon Of Teen
All my thoughts have been arranged and
Throwing me in and out of phasing
He’s yr greatest adversary
Pictures in the dictionary
Mind how you go
‘Cause you can go yr own way
Only so you know
The records show
He’s the first tycoon of teen
Seven jets all in a pattern
Get with girls in downtown Gatton
Tell me why you’re so amazing
Yr only picking out the raisins
But mind how you go
‘Cause you can go yr own way
Only so you know
The records show
He’s the first tycoon of teen
At least he keeps his backside clean
Track Name: Impractical
Avonda hill
Looking for the lookout, looking for you
A new lesson in safety, that’s a healthy start
And the speech you made
Well the words they rang so true
And the time it takes you
It’s impractical
To expect the best of you
When today is nearly through
Revolt damn soldiers
We never took the rest of you
We’re there when you need us
At the end of a run of anecdotes
First in line for revival
When the bitch finally steps in
Who keeps you, looking so damn pretty
Looking, looking for you
And the feat awaits you
It’s impractical
To expect the best of you
When today is very nearly through
Revolt damn soldiers
We never took the rest of you
Come on!
You know you got onto a winner
Baby
You know you got onto a winner
Track Name: Strategy Man
Have it yr way don’t make too many plans
All in a day’s work for the strategy man
Nice to believe yr a critic
The difference is that maybe he’ll blow us away
Strategy man my beer’s gone flat again
Strategy man you’ve ruined my weekend
And it’s only Friday
Nice to believe that we’ve written off the rest of the year
‘Cause it seemed like a good idea
And still does
There is only so much strategy
Any one man can take
There is really only so much strategy
Any one man can take
And it’s reason
For the season
Strategy, g-man
Strategy man you really must form yr own band
On the tip of yr tongue there’s some stiff competition to you
In the N.E.N.S.W. rock H.Q.
Strategy man don’t tell me it was all untrue
Strategy, you’re dressing up for the part
Track Name: Red Electric
Just got some footage
Of mahogany dutch cramps
And provisional amps
Who put on Transvision Vamp?
That’s a much better answer
Than ‘I Am The Cancer’
Or even ‘Private Dancer’
Now you just need a stamp
And they paint it red electric
And they paint it red electric
You can always do what’s expected
And they paint it red electric
I’m entertaining masses
Reaching for the pen
Get a load o’ me now
I ain’t looking down
You gotta see the face
To appreciate the work
Blow a kiss to the lawyers
Well it’s a one-night standard
Sounds like a song I heard on the radiotron
And they paint it red electric
And they paint it red electric
You can always scare them off with your rhetoric
And they paint it red electric
And they paint it red electric
And they taint it real eclectic
