    Tim Minchin - Mitsubishi Colt (live)

    ".. I have a problem with stock brokers. Uh, it's not ... are there any stock brokers in the audience? I don't wanna upset anyone. I don't have a problem with the job you do. I'm not ... even entirely sure what it is but um, my problem is a grammatical issue. See, broke is the past tense of break. I don't really get how you can have a 'broker'. Well - I don't call myself a sanger.

    This song is about a conversation I had with a stock broker in a pub once. It's called 'mitsubishi colt'..."


    He looks at me intensely
    Eyes-sparkle, contact-lens green
    with artificial envy.
    Cocks his head and fixes me with a condescending stare
    Flicks his bleached, blond tipped hair
    And theorises thus

    You know what I reckon?
    Pause for effect
    Adjusts his tackle as if it's semi-erect
    I figure I'd better give him what I know he expects
    What do you reckon?

    A hand on the shoulder
    An avuncular wink
    Sips his lemon drink
    Spits out the pips
    Hands on hips
    Licks his lips
    Like a wolf near a flock
    Yet again adjusting this fantasy cock
    He delivers his philosophy

    ''I reckon it don't matter
    It don't mean squat
    What you earn or what you got
    Or the style of your hair
    Or what you wear
    It matters not,"

    "I mean what do you care
    That I live on a hill with views of the beach
    That my chick and my dogs have an en-suite bathroom each
    That I've already reached my first ten million and I'm only 36

    You're as thick as two bricks
    If you think you can fix
    What is broke in your life with money
    And the funny thing is
    And I shit you not
    I would give it all up like that...,"

    He leaves me to ponder his wisdom for a bit
    And with a click of his fingers
    Beckons the blondest, bimbo-est barmaid
    And grinning ridiculously
    Orders a G&T
    And a beer for me
    And before I can escape
    He's back saying

    "Cos mate, the thing is
    All of that crap
    It's all superficial
    It's all just a front
    I mean anyone can be a rich cunt
    But the thing we all want
    Can't be bought with dosh
    You know what I mean boss?
    Cos it's not like you give a toss
    That when I want to get slim
    I've got my own private gym
    And a personal trainer called Danielle or fucking Darlene
    She's got tits
    Like those chicks
    In Playboy magazine

    And it's not like you care
    That I own the controlling share
    Of an overseas company
    That builds accounting software
    It matters not one bit
    I mean who gives a shit
    If I earn six hundred grand
    And drive a brand new Land Rover
    You know I would hand it all over like that."

    He pauses for a beat
    Long enough for me to retreat to a seat
    And sit, elbow on the bar
    And contemplate this guru
    With his white teeth and his big car
    And ponder silently my belief
    That genius comes in many forms
    And that this postulating, peroxided porn-star prick ain't one of 'em

    My specultaion cut short
    As he reforms
    Like Terminator II
    And before I have time to abort
    He descends upon me and snorts

    "I guess what I'm trying to say
    In my own little way
    Is that I reckon musos and artists and that
    Well I reckon they're great
    I know some people reckon you guys just sit on your bums
    And don't get out of bed till the pizza man comes
    And smoke cones
    And take crack
    And wack-off all day
    But I don't care what they say
    And I don't listen to people
    Who say that all actors are gay
    Not that I don't think that's OK
    I mean as far as I'm concerned
    Although it's not my bag
    If you wanna be a fag
    Be a fag y'know?
    I mean who am I to say
    Where you come
    And where you go
    In the privacy of your own homo
    Ha ha
    Homo
    Ha ha
    Homo
    Ha ha
    Ha ha."
    He's shitting me now

    And my eyes start to glaze
    And through the haze of my anger
    I notice his G&T is gone
    And he's starting to dribble
    As he dribbles on and fucking on
    "But you musos are alright
    I don't know much about music
    But I know what I like
    And I reckon I'll give it all in
    To be like you Jim,"
    TIMMM
    "Cause you might be poor in monetary terms
    But what you earn spiritually
    What makes you what you are
    Just means so much more
    Than what you get from a really nice car
    Or a tennis court
    Or holidays in Greece
    Or a house on the beach
    Or stock market shares
    Or 31 pairs
    Of Calvin Klein undewear
    Do you understand you are a wealthy, wealthy man
    And mate I don't want to piss in your pocket
    But I've gotta say
    Before I get on my way
    That honestly, and I'm not having you on
    I reckon one day you could play piano as good as Elton John..."

    ***

    The cops are still mingling
    Though the crowd shuffled out
    I've got ice on my hand
    Where my fist met his mouth
    And although I explained
    That it wasn't my fault
    I have an 800 buck fine
    For aggravated assault
    So before it gets worse
    I reckon I'll bolt
    A wealthy, wealthy man...

    In a 1981 Mitsubishi Colt

    I will avenge you, senpai!

    I may have posted these before. Is one of my favourite songs.


    Wrens - She Sends Kisses

    Ten tons against me and you've gone
    I put your favorite records on
    And sit around
    It spins around
    And you're around again

    Struck dumb while drugs run at how high reeds
    Cue every memory at half-speeds
    Just like.. Charles, hold-me-downs
    I'm coming sounds
    Cut crap, who's filling shoes like these anymore?

    Past clumsy crushes beneath Thrill Pier
    Hopes pinned to poses honed in men's room mirrors
    A sophomore at Brown
    She worked lost & found
    I put your face on her all year

    From five rows of photos when you wrote
    Of posed you, dressed blue, in a backyard boat
    And at the bottom with this quote:
    (#4 North Shore) a Cape May address
    Your new one I guess
    'All's well in hell and here's hoping'

    She sends kisses
    Some signed 'with Love, Beth O's and X's
    She sends kisses
    Same old Beth
    Some signed 6's
    Our shore town knockdown sure was fun
    yeah, white trash, what have you
    I fired replies back gun by gun
    past Seven Wrecks I read your four answers: 1. your move 2. I'm tres involved 3. move on 4. love, Beth
    I walk it down
    this tourist town
    'just thought I'd' calls
    just friends
    she sends kisses
    and all at once back doors blow open
    she sends.... in envelopes stamped with 'Hope & Hearts' - ripped right open
    she sends...
    but I'm corrupt - I wrote back good luck

    Galaxie-
    I'm entering a frame bombarded by indecision
    Where a man like me can easily let the day get out of control
    Down this far in the quarter
    I'm pushed hard upon the border
    But I'd rather be caught around now
    Instead of, oh say, 'round the month of June
    But if I can leave with a little bit of explanation
    Then, anywhere in the world I choose to go, I'll have it made
    Is this the place that I want to be?
    Is it you I want to see?
    Holding on, hold it high, show me everything
    And you're leaving me, yeah you're leaving me
    You're leaving me with a hated identity
    But I keep on a-comin' here and standing in this state
    And I'm never really sure if you'll take what I'm saying the right way
    But I'm not appalled or afraid verbal pocket play
    Is as discreet as I can muster up to be
    Because the Cadillac that's sittin' in the back
    It isn't me
    Oh, no, no, no it isn't me
    I'm more at home in my galaxie
    Can I do the things I wanna do
    That I don't do because of you?
    And I'll take a left and I'll second guess
    Into a total mess
    And you're leaving me, yeah you're leaving me
    You're leaving me with a hated identity
    But I keep on a-comin' here and standing in this state
    Oh and I'm always reassured the situation's getting carried away
    But I'm not appalled or afraid verbal pocket play
    Is as discreet as I can muster up to be
    Because the Cadillac that's sittin' in the back
    It isn't me
    Oh, no, no, no it isn't me
    Oh, no, no, no it isn't me
    No it isn't me
    No it isn't me
    No it isn't me
    No, no it isn't me
    No it isn't me
    In my galaxie

    Jackson Browne- Late for the Sky

    All the words had all been spoken
    And somehow the feeling still wasn't right
    And still we continued on through the night
    Tracing our steps from the beginning
    Until they vanished into the air
    Trying to understand how our lives had led us there
    Looking hard into your eyes
    There was nobody I'd ever known
    Such an empty surprise to feel so alone
    Now, for me some words come easy
    But I know that they don't mean that much
    Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
    You never knew what I loved in you
    I don't know what you loved in me
    Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be
    Awake again, I can't pretend
    And I know I'm alone and close to the end
    Of the feeling we've known
    How long have I been sleeping?
    How long have I been drifting alone through the night?
    How long have I been dreaming I could make it right?
    If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
    To be the the one you need
    Awake again, I can't pretend
    And I know I'm alone and close to the end
    Of the feeling we've known
    How long have I been sleeping?
    How long have I been drifting alone through the night?
    How long have I been running for that morning flight?
    Through the whispered promises and the changing light
    Of the bed where we both lie
    Late for the sky

    The War on Drugs- Red Eyes

    Come and see
    Where I witness everything
    On my knees
    Beat it down to get to my soul
    Against my will
    Anyone can tell it's you coming
    Baby don't mind
    Leave it on the line, leave it hanging on the rail
    Come and ride away
    It's easier to stick to the old
    Surrounded by the night
    Surrounded by the night and you don't give in
    But you abuse my faith
    Lose it every time, but I don't know where
    You're on my side again
    So ride the heat wherever it goes
    I'll be the one to care
    You're all I've got, wait
    Don't wanna let the dark night cover my soul
    Well, you can see it through the darkness coming my way
    Well, we won't get lost inside it all again
    Oh, my mind
    No one sees me, I'm out here waiting
    They don't mind that I'm here, I hear
    Throw the bad away, and your mind against it
    I would keep you here, but I can't
    Oh, I'll talk to you when I make my way back
    I don't see it over there where I come from, yeah
    Lost and you're hurt again
    The easy way to cover my sin
    Don't want another dark time to think to myself
    We won't get lost inside it all, you're on my way
    Well, I can see it in the darkness combing my mind
    Well, we can hear the voices war inside
    Yeah, and you won't get lost inside it all
    You're on my way

    The War on Drugs-

    Suffering:

    In the cold, the wait, you come, you gave me
    In the way that you come and make it alright
    I was here in the world, it's the world that you gave me
    Every time
    You can say that you're running
    'Cause I can go back on the street
    Why be here when we're both gonna fake it anyway?
    No more try to hear killing your goal
    Means I can be bigger than the tones
    In the moments of suffering
    Like the feeling that you gave me
    Like a snowflake through the fire, babe
    I'll be frozen in time, but you'll be here
    Suffering
    Will you be here suffering?
    Will you be here suffering?
    Well, I hope to be

    Knocked Down- TWoD

    Far away there is a star
    Raining through the night sky like a drop
    Give 'em all a piece of moon for me
    Somehow I can make it rain
    Diamonds in the night sky, I'm like a child
    And now I'm all beaten up and weak
    I'm gonna lie here but I get knocked down
    I'm only shaking 'cause I'm lying in the hold
    I want to shake it but I can't break free
    Anyway
    Somewhere out there look at my
    It's like I'm raining in the night sky like a drop
    Now you're all beaten up, you're weak
    Somewhere they can make it rain
    Diamonds in the night sky, I'm like a child
    All alone, beaten up, free
    I want to love you but I get knocked down
    I want to love you when I'm lying in the ground
    I want to show you but I can't break free
    To be the one that I should dare to be
    I want to love you but I get knocked down
    I want to shake you 'cause I'm lying in the hold
    I want to shake it but I can't break free
    Anyway
