Give It A Whirl
Tim Finn/Neil Finn

I saw you there by the side of the road
You wore long faces and long overcoats in the rain
Waiting for buses to carry you home
Winter wind rushes and rattles your bones, it’s a shame

I can see no sign of action in your eyes
There’s a thrill you’ll never know if you never try

Remember taking a ride on a ferris wheel
And really enjoying yourself, bye bye blues
Remember taking a bet on a race
You faced the future with a smile on your face, win or lose

No, I don’t mean to preach, I don’t mean to patronise
There’s a thrill that you’ll never know if you never try

Why don’t you give it a, give it a, give it a whirl
Why don’t you give it a, give it a, give it a whirl
Why don’t you give it a, give it a, give it a whirl
Why don’t you give it a, give it a, give it a whirl………..

I saw you there by the side of the road
You wore long faces and long overcoats in the rain
Waiting for buses to carry you home
Winter wind rushes and rattles your bones, it’s a shame

No, never give up, giving in, it’s like kissing goodbye
There’s a thrill, that you’ll never know, if you never try

Why don’t you give it a whirl…

Mind Over Matter
Tim Finn/Neil Finn

Pain puts you at a disadvantage, it’s inconvenient
Don’t let your body betray you with this physical torment

It’s mind over matter, got my mind over my matter
Mind over matter, got my mind over matter, yeah

Heartache, backache, and toothache and headache
Vexation of the spirit
Cigarette burns, cold showers for hours
My training helps me through it
People with weak hearts should go into training
I don’t let pain deter me
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But they will never hurt me

It’s mind over matter, got my mind over my matter
Mind over matter, got my mind over matter, yeah

Mind over
Mind over matter, makes lean times fatter (x2)
fatter, fatter, fatter…
Got my mind over my matter
(repeat til fade)
