Vertigo (1983)

Twisting by the Pool

Sound bite

Lyrics

We’re going on a holiday now
Gonna take a villa, a small chalet
On the Costa del Magnifico
Where the cost of living is so low

Yeah, we’re gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we’re gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

Sitting in a small cafe now
Swing, swing, swingin to the cabaret
You wanna see a movie, take in a show now
Meet new people at the disco

Yeah, we’re gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we’re gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

And we can still get information
Reading all about inflation
And you’re never gonna be out of reach
There’s a call-box on the beach

Mmm, you’re gonna look so cute
Sunglasses and bathing suites
Be the baby of my dreams
Like the ladies in the magazine

Yeah, we’re gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we’re gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

I’m a twisting fool
Just twisting, yeah twisting
Twisting by the pool

Two Young Lovers

Sound bite

Lyrics

It was the last day of summer
It was the first of a new romance
He walked into her on the corner
She said, I don’t dance

He said, baby let me teach you
She said, o.k., when?
He said, how can I reach you baby
I’d really like to see you again

He picked her up on a Friday night
He took her for a bite to eat
His heart was beating and his hands were shaking
She thought he was sweet

And he stood on her shoes on the dance floor
Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek
And he walked her home and he kissed her
He was walking on air all week

Well, they couldn’t stand to be apart
They couldn’t leave one another alone
Her mama used to say, it’s getting late sweetheart
It’s time that boy went home

And upstairs papa kissed mama
And she gave him a sweet caress
He said, here’s to the two young lovers
Let’s wish ’em every happiness

It was the last day of summer
They came walking home hand in hand
They went and told her mama
They showed her the wedding band

Mama cried and poured the wine
Papa just said God bless
Now, here’s to the two young lovers
Let’s wish ’em every happiness

If I Had You

Sound bite

Lyrics

Oo-ooo if I had you, yeah the things that I could do
Honey, if I had you

Now I could sing like an angel, fly just like a bird
Sing you the best love song you ever heard.
I could be a poet like Mohammed Ali,
Float like a butterfly, sting just like a, just like a bee.

Mmm, ooo, if I had you, ahhh the things that I could do
If I had you.

Now I’d go get your name tattooed on my chest,
Well it’d just say ‘my baby, my baby, she’s the best.’
I could be your Superman, you could be my Lois Lane
I could be a Tarzan, you could be my sweet Jane – if you wanted to.

Mmm if I had you, ah the things that I could do
If I had you.

Yeah one more time…

Ooo if I had, only had you, Yeah the things that I could do,

Oh boy
Only if I had you.

So come on dance with me baby, don’t let me go.
Yeah dance with me baby, don’t let me go.
Baby don’t let me, don’t let me
Don’t let me go, oh no…

Badges, Posters, Stickers and T-Shirts

Sound bite

Lyrics

Me and my mate we think you’re great
Some we like and some we hate
I know him I’ve seen him on the adverts
Got any badges posters stickers or t-shirts

You were bloody great last time you come
I thought me ‘ead was stuck in the bass drum
Bloody loud, me bloody head hurts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

So how’d you get a start in show biz
My mate’s as good on the drums as he is
My mate thinks I’m bloody cracked
Please sign my jacket on the back

All them badges made of plastic
I think they’re great, just fantastic
I’m unemployed, he’s still at school
He gets annoyed ’cause I’m such a fool

You don’t half sweat a lot up there
Have you got showers in here?
You’re bloody great, my bloody head hurts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

Yeah, me and my mate like ac-dc
Hot & sweaty, loud & greasy
My mom says we’re a pair of perverts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

C’mon mister
We hitch-hiked here in pouring rain
Now we’ve missed the frigging train.

Hey! can I have one of them lagers?
Thanks very much, mate. can ‘e have one?
A-one, a-two, a-one two three four…
