Lyrics

Turtlebait
sample: [listen Thatcher]

Turtlebait
You're turtlebait, honey
Turtlebait
You're turtlebait, now
Turtlebait
You're turtlebait, honey
Turtlebait
You're turtlechow

You used to treat me mean
You used to treat me cruel
You used to stay out all night long
You used to take me for a fool
You used to treat me mad
You used to treat me bad
You were the lowest nights that I ever had
I used to crawl on my belly over broken glass
I used to crawl on my belly just to talk to you
I used to swallow it all
I used to let it all go
But then somebody slipped, and I think you oughtta know...

That you're turtlebait
Turtlebait, darling
You turtlebait
Turtlebait, now
You turtlebait
You turtlebait, darlin'
You turtlebait
Turtlechow

Get to like it (x3)
You get to like it

If you love something set it free (x3)
Then hunt it down and kill it

Turtlebait
You turtlebait, honey
You turtlebait
You turtlebait, now
You turtlebait
Yo, baby, honey
You just turtlebait
Turtlechow

You used to treat me so mean
You used to leave us hurting
Bet you never heard about our mutual friend Curt
Well, Curt likes motiveless crime, it's the best modern style,
But it just don't beat domestic slaughter
Hey, look at that water risin'
Turtlebait
And it's just you and me down here, baby
Turtlebait
Yeah, that water's coming up
You know that water's looking good

You used to come 'round here with your Poll Tax forms
You used to come 'round here with your brand new "Next" catalogue
You used to come 'round here with all your C.D.s
You used to come 'round here and think that everything was squalid
Well now you're turtlebait

Cult Of The Basement
If things seemed weird back in February 1989, when we made this baby, the Weird were going shopping on bikes. In a farmhouse in the dead of winter, in personal circumstances too bizarre and complex to relate, we set about making our "commercial suicide" album. For the first time, I felt, we had made an album that really sounded like us. This record does have personality. One of my favourites, this.
