Berlin Chair Lyrics

Artist: You Am I
Album: Sound As Ever

If half of what I'm saying, of what I'm saying is true
Will you rub my head, make it all shiny and new?
And you drag my coat tails, drag my coat tails down
and I'll be the only cold assed king around.
If you wait I'll give all my aches to you.
Take the chance, to ignore what you're going through?
My cold hand is there for you to take
(If you leave, can I fall down)
I'm your Berlin Chair, won't you lean on me 'til I break.

I'll ignore each golden, dragging kiss you can give.
On the blankest face that you ever had to forgive.
If you see my fallings, see my failings through.
I'm the re-run that you'll always force yourself to sit through.

If you wait I'll give all my aches to you.
Take the chance, to ignore what you're going through?
My cold hand is there for you to take
(If you leave, can I fall down)
I'm your Berlin Chair, won't you lean on me 'til I break.

Well you're too late. You're too late.
You're too late.

i'm pretty sure he says
"if you wait, i'll give all my eggs to you"
it's pretty obvious that it's eggs

But 'aches' would make a lot more sense...I thought it was 'eggs' too, but that wouldn't make any sense.
by riles on 7/25/2008 6:27am
haha... surely you're taking the piss. it is DEFINITELY NOT "eggs".
by panda on 8/24/2008 2:57am
But I think it's like when you put all your "eggs" into the one basket...I think he's saying "eggs".
by claire on 8/30/2008 8:00am
This might be one of the funniest threads I have ever read.

PS its not eggs
by Chopsy on 9/14/2008 8:54pm
Greatest Aussie Rock song ever!
by DB on 10/16/2008 11:53pm
It really does sound like eggs. It was the fact that I thought Tim was singing "eggs" that led me to look at this page.

I prepared to concede that it's aches now that I know better.
by Chris on 11/28/2008 9:18am
Well - just cause it sounds that way doesn't make it EGGS! Then Heavy Heart would go "I miss you Locksley", too!
by btd on 12/4/2008 8:23am
th think its 'angst'
by Pugs on 12/21/2008 1:42am
I thought it was eggs - put your eggs in one basket etc etc
by hickey on 1/14/2009 6:07am
I was at a you am i gig years ago at the bar on the hill in newcastle, singing/screaming to berlin chair and said eggs in that spot, tim stopped and asked you said eggs( i didn't put my hand up) he then said quite firmly the lyric is aches NOT eggs.
by Reality on 2/23/2009 5:00am
omfg you guys are idiots. Of course it's eggs. aches... thats stupid
by Not Eggs on 2/25/2009 1:31pm
Funny stuff. Another one for eggs. Thought it was wait/eggs, the whole children thing. Came here to see what he was on about.
by its angst on 3/11/2009 9:08am
pretty sure...
by yerg on 9/28/2009 9:08pm
ok, wait on, all from You Am I official site: - in the lyrics section it's aches, in the tab section it's aches AND angst, & on the norweigan wood version tab it's eggs! apparently they're not sure themselves!
by tim rogers on 10/9/2009 7:55pm

peace out
timbo

its not that ridiculous that people thought it said eggs, it makes sense in a obscure way but listening to a couple live versions and stuff pretty sure it is actually aches.
by haha on 11/6/2009 4:43am
it says at the start
"if have of what i'm saying, think what i'm saying is true"
by chewey on 1/28/2010 6:06pm
I like my eggs soft in the middle, it's ACHES!
After listening to Holly Throsby cover You Am I on the Triple j Like a version 5, she clearly says aches!!
This is definately the funniest thread ever, Glad Timbo Rogers was there to sort it out!!
by davey lane on 2/17/2010 7:05pm
yeah right.. as if that was tim
by K:) on 3/22/2010 11:55pm
Geez will just stop and enjoy the song for what it is!
by trenton on 4/15/2010 2:38am
mi and my band are gonna play it at battle of the bands
by Carly on 4/28/2010 6:54pm
This is one of my favourite songs ever and it has the best film clip to go along with it..
Love it!! Alway's makes me smile...
And who ever thought it said eggs really need's to get thier ears cleaned out!!!
by DrewBoy on 5/5/2010 7:28am
Eggs, aches ... what the boy was clearly trying to say was "ANGST" (As if a former school prefect would say "eggs". I mean really..)
by DrewBoy on 5/5/2010 7:32am
Eggs, aches ... what the boy is clearly trying to say is ANGST.
(As if a former school prefect would ever sing "ggs". I mean really, chaps..)
by BelateldlyLoveThisBand on 8/16/2010 9:04am
In my old crustiness
by Leah on 12/21/2010 6:18pm
It sounds like ANGST to me.
by Christine on 8/18/2011 6:20pm
I am in tears lol @ eggs.. I am a victim of always hearing "eggs" too ROTFLMAO
by Alex on 10/29/2011 7:37am
Haha......I've always thought it was eggs, and, fuck it, I'm gonna keep singing eggs!
by rstar on 12/6/2011 5:25pm
I always thought it was "acts" as in acts of a play or acting. The song is a sarcastic take about a relationship with the narrator who is unwillingly manipulative or emotionally retarded but feels they cant do anything but let the other down because it is in their nature. I dont know angst would really work? in the rest of the track the character doesnt really feel angsty... although that doesnt mean it isnt angst...I like it better as acts
by Lewis on 2/28/2014 1:54am
"If you wait I give all my aches to you.." ie wait until I open my heart ... "take the chance to ignore what youre going through" feel my pain to forget your own...
by Buska on 6/28/2014 5:36am
I liked it being eggs. I always thought of it as eggs, like put all your eggs in one basket. Like he is giving every chance he has to her. I like that
by BB on 7/9/2014 12:07am
Not only did I think it was "I give all my eggs to you" but I also thought it was "you drank my cocktails, you drank my cocktails down". Clearly I am quite food and drink motivated.
by Post on 7/11/2014 12:03pm
Clearly the song references a claim for damages resulting from injuries sustained while using a faulty "Berlin" model chair.

The reference in question is acres, {I give all my acres (of land) to you}pointing to a property settlement of the kind common amongst the rural classes.
by duncz on 8/25/2014 8:34pm
Re: BB - I always thought it was drank my cocktails as well!
by Post Fan on 10/18/2015 5:20pm
Re: Post

You made me cry a little bit from laughter. All these people arguing about eggs and then that.
by Mugpie on 12/25/2015 5:41pm
Imagine the fun and confusion if Tim Rogers and James Reyne got together -
"You am Drawl" !
by Dodoo on 4/19/2016 10:24am
It's great that an 8-year-long argument about eggs has taken place here
by Mr wong wyrics on 7/18/2016 3:28pm
If you bake I'll give all my eggs to you.
Take a chance to eat all of my Irish stew.
My cold ham is there for you to take.
I make tasty fare, you can eat it all in your break.
by Caz on 5/14/2017 5:56pm
+ 1 for eggs
+ 1 for cocktails

We can't all be wrong, right?
by Kymbolina on 9/20/2017 3:58pm
You guys are a bunch of donuts. Of course it's eggs. Has been and always will be...to me!
