No Aphrodisiac
The Whitlams Lyrics


A letter to you on a cassette
'Cause we don't write anymore
Gotta make it up quickly
There's people asleep on the second floor
There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Truth beauty and a picture of you

You'll be walking your dog in a few hours
I'll be asleep in my brother's house
You're a thousand miles away
With food between your teeth
Come up for summer I've got a place near the beach
There's room for your dog

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Truth beauty and a picture of you

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Truth beauty and a picture of you

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Youth truth beauty fame boredom and a bottle of pills

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
You shouldn't leave me alone

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Bare feet like a tom-boy and a crooked smile

Truth youth beauty fame boredom red hair no hair
Innocence Saturday and a picture of you
A letter to you on a cassette
You shouldn't leave me alone

Forty shaved sexy wants to do it all day
With a gun-totin' trigger-happy tranny named Kinky Renée
Tired teacher twenty-eight seeks regular meetings for
masculine muscular nappy-clad brutal breeding
While his wife rough-wrestles with a puppy all aquiver
on a wine-soaked strobe-lit Asiatic hall
of mirrors and a dash of loneliness
There's no aphrodisiac quite like it

Truth youth beauty fame boredom red hair no hair
innocence impunity and a picture of you
I got a video set-up me love you short time
she pay me suck his finger with some fine wine
And a dash of loneliness

Truth youth beauty fame boredom red hair no hair
Innocence awkwardness impunity
And a picture of you

When I was a kid we’d play their albums on trips.
I memorised the lyrics but was just a kid and I loved it.
Fast forward 20 years it’s such a different song. It’s like a bittersweet nostalgia.
You realise it’s a really sad song and worse, you relate.
Then you listen to Charlie songs and wow man you can feel the pain.
Losing a band mate and friend to gambling addiction then suicide.
The gambling facilities here are so extremely available and you always see ads for it. That and alcohol ads and you’re at the footy. Sorry I got distracted
Anyhow
Hope you’re well

Quite possibly the most talented act to ever come out of Oz. It's a shame that they weren't known worldwide.

Adam Salt

What a song . How it starts so sweet and ends in a very dark place. Brilliant.

MBW

This song is one of those things, for me, that you experience as a kid then return to it as an adult and it’s kinda completely different. Excellent, deeper, more meaningful and you know, at age 7 I really didn’t pickup on the darkness of this song

@Hayden Tanti 2-up on Anzac Day. Ban gambling the rest of the time.
