You Sound Like Louis Burdett Lyrics

Artist: The Whitlams
Album: Eternal Nightcap

Had a little bit to drink
There's a little thing I want at a do out East
Nothing too emotional, my good miss
I couldn't be serious in a room full of jack-knife eyes
Stop talking 'bout the years - you sound like Louis Burdett
And we roll on to my backshed, play some poker, scratch my head
Look at the sky and spot the planes, where would I go on holidays?
Roll with the punches, down the aisles, and down the street the weeks roll by
I'm chewing ice and grinning, I'm spewing up and spinning
It's billiousness as usual in my corner of the kitchen
Hey you, lose that friend before we go anywhere
What? Someone might see you alone?
Stop bagging out the band, you sound like Louis Burdett
All my friends are fuck-ups but they're fun to have around
Banana chairs out on the concrete, telling stories to the stars
how Gemini's love Wooden Dragons, and how down the street the weeks roll by
The moment the night wears off, the bombsite reappears
They're all asleep but the morning tastes like wine
It tastes like wine in Tempe
I feel so good I just might wake him up
Pat him on the bald head - tell me about a dream Louis, something
obscene Louis, your life's an open magazine Louis
I'm stoned in a bookshop, sober in a nightclub
Sex is everywhere but nowhere 'round me
By the time she gets to Marrickville we'll be masturbating
never rains in Tempe but the planes remind me of family money and the lack down here
Stop talking frustrated, 'cause I sound like Louis Burdett
Most of my friends are very fruity indeed, such fun to have around
Terror, like charity, begins at home
Chris don't like madness, but madness likes him
He's got a finger in his chest saying how it should have been

you may deride our louis but he is more insightful, well intended and talented that most musicians I've come across in 40 years. Much too good to stuck here in OZ, but there you go, eh? Who has the intellince to even care?

They're not deriding Louis! Louis and Tim used to live together, they're buddies. Plus, I'm sure someone with the intelligence to spell intelligence correctly would care...

Gotta love this song. :)
I can relate- all my friends are fuck ups but are fun to be around too

Louis always was, always will be, an arrogant f-wit. Who else would give his 13 year old son LSD down in King's Cross?
Oh Louis, you're sooo enlightened!

"Sounding like Louis Burdett" is definitely not a desirable personality characteristic for any rational human being.
