Track Name: Back to basics
Things are moving way too fast
It’s like nothing’s made to last
It makes me wanna ask
Should I go back to basics, back to basics?

Well I’m gonna quit my job
Gonna sell all my stuff
I wanna live beside beach
I’m going back to basics, back to basics

When your fridge is on the blink and it’s starting to stink
You’re gonna have to think - is it really worth it?
Do you really wanna live your life like this

When your things are breaking down
And your smile is upside down
When you think you’re gonna drown
Then you go back to basics, back to basics

When your car’s in little bits
And your iPad’s on the fritz
You’re at the end of your wits
You should go back to basics, back to basics

When your fridge is on the blink and it’s starting to stink
You’re gonna have to think - is it really worth it?
Do you really wanna live your life like this?
lead break chorus
Bass riff x 4
Bass riff x 4 with ad lib vocals

If your sky comes crashing down
And you keep falling to the ground
When help is nowhere to be found
You go back to basics, back to basics

So if you wanna be free
Why don’t you come along with me
And we can go and hug a tree
And we’ll go back to basics, back to basics
Track Name: The Arrowboys
The Arrowboys, they really think they’re tough
Sex and drugs, they can’t handle that stuff
Gotta be cool, or they won’t listen
Don’t like women, they don’t know what they’re missing

Single shots, the only way
They can shoot anything all day
Single shots all day
Single shots, the only way

They always get what they aim for
Find that arrow ‘cause we got no more
Find that arrow, what a bore…

Single shots, the only way
They can shoot anything all day
Single shots all day
Single shots, the only way

High performance and wide wheels
Leather consoles and gherkin peels
If it doesn’t do 13’s over the quarter
Put it on blocks and boot your lawyer

Single shots, the only way
They can shoot anything all day
Single shots all day
Single shots, the only way

Single shots, single shots
Single shots, single shots
Single shots, single shots
Single shots, single shots

They are the Arrowboys
They are the Arrowboys
They are the Arrowboys
They are the Arrowboys
Track Name: Turbo Girl (New Wave version)
Low compression is the way to go you gotta
Save your money and fit a turbo
You got to shop around, and get a good deal
Before you can make your tyres really squeal

If you want to be up front, not feel like a fool
You've got to fit a turbo to be really cool
What ever happened to the good old days when a
Cam and extractors was the only way

Natural aspiration was the way it used to be
Now it's just all force feed

Force feed, force feed
Now it's just all force feed
Force feed, force feed
Now it's just all force feed

You've got to pipe your engine up just right
Before you can get your petrol to ignite
You've got to tune your motor all night
Before you can launch it into flight

If you can't get a turbo and be really cool
You've got to take yourself back to school
Automatic gearbox with overdrive
Never been slow all his life!

Natural aspiration was the way it used to be
Now it's just all force feed

Force feed, force feed
Now it's just all force feed
Force feed, force feed
Now it's just all force feed

Turbo Girl, you're a Turbo Girl
You really send me round this great big world
Turbo Girl, you're a Turbo Girl
You really send me round this great big world
