TURBO NERD (Andre) Can't get a good sandwich in Sydney for five bucks but you can get 14 of the dreamiest, noisiest, drippiest tunes ripped straight from a 1960s vinyl and digitised for your listening pleasure.

If I had to sum up this release it'd be a fresh pepperoni pizza in a box without those little white stander things that stop the box from sucking up the cheese, but it's alright because you've been up for 18 hours, and the inside of your shoes are wet from the rain, and you've ingested far more than your share of the spiked punch that your girlfriend made yesterday.

(Am) I see you standing there bored like you don't know what to do Standing there stiff like a statue at a zoo Standing there stupid like you haven't got a clue Come a little closer cuz I'm coming for you My name is Chris Twist You know that you can't resist Chris Twist When the music starts going I'm going like this I twist East, west, north, south You know every buddy keeps on talking about North, south, east, west They're all doing the Chris Twist Every buddy's doing the Chris Twist twist
(E D) I was following a rainbow Searching, searching for a pot of gold Sapphire ruby emerald None's as precious as the one I hold Red orange yellow green and blue Indigo and violet too Ultraviolet, infrared All the colors of my head
(E A B7) A garden grows 'neath a single yellow rose That's where my love lies like a stone A hidden field with its crop come up to yield And I know some day I'll make it back home I'm out here on the run, trying to make it fun That's the way I gotta live Doing all I can, living like a lamb Taking all that I can give Leaping day and night, trying to get it right Cuz that's my prerogative And I know some day I'll make it back home
(G C Am) You know I like it when you do what you wanna do You'll see me smiling when I see you being true So do what you wanna do (G Am C) I got the keys to the melodies that'll set you free, flying on the breeze I got the keys to the melodies that'll set you free if you trust in me
(A G D A) There's 50 ways to leave your lover and just one way to stay So what you gonna do? Hey hey There's 50 ways to blow my cover and just one game to play So what are you gonna do? Hey hey Boy Blue, tell me something true What are you gonna do when the sun don't shine on you The sun don't shine tonight
(F C) Put one foot in front of the other Take a little look a little look around Put one foot in front of the other Take a little look let me know what you found I really hate to tell you but I hate to smell you
(A) Born a poor young country boy I know the world like the back of my hand City living it's such a joy I want to be a natural man* *Hook inspired by Kenny cooking meat in my kitchen
(G Em C D) You call me the joker, but the joke's on you Try to hide me away like there's nothing I can do You call me the joker, but the joke's on you I'm wild There's nowhere in this land I'd rather be than in your hand Don't throw me away I say There's nowhere in this land I'd rather be than in your hand Let me show you how to play My heart can't take it My head, don't you break it How long must I say it I'm wild
(A E) Trouble is a bubble and it's about it pop All our crying days are gonna come come to a stop When happy days are here again Hurry all your worries will be leaving you soon Fly on the horizon like a hot air balloon When happy days are here again (D A Bm E7) I believe in another way, I believe in a happy day
(F Bb) Life is a one way street And you never never never know who you're gonna meet Life is one one way street You can sit and watch or you can move your feet Join the progression Find an obsession Or just go with the flow Salmon in the stream Don't care what you dream We go where we choose Nothing left to lose
(????) Let me know how you want to be I can do all for you all that you've done for me Let me know if you like what you see I'm still figuring out that it's not so easy One, two, what can you do? If you close your eyes, you'll be surprised And a three, four, tell me some more If you open your eyes I will open my eyes
(C F C) When my dream boat comes in I'm sailing away I won't be back again for yesterday We'll set the sails not caring where we're going If the winds get too rough we'll sail it back home (C G C) Where I'm going the boys want to be like me Where I'm going the girls want to see me free (C F) Where I'm going I've got plenty of time (F G G G G) Plenty of time to make up my mind
(C, Am)
