Swimming Pool
Toy Love Lyrics


Rock is dead or so it's said
And now it's all a part of history
Lost the thread and lost its head
Well, I dunno, it seems OK to me
Jim Morrison, Brian Jones
Marc Bolan, Jimi Hendrix
Lying at the bottom of
Your swimming pool
Don't let Creem, Crawdaddy
Rip It Up, New Musical Express
Call you a fool
Because I really care
I can't believe that you believe
That everything's a part of yesterday
I'm mystified that suicide
Should kill the things I really need to say
Jim Morrison, Brian Jones
Marc Bolan, Jimi Hendrix etc...
Everybody knows
That you got new clothes
But aren't they the same old
Trash you used to wear
Look in my direction
Can't you see my reflection
Well, baby, don't you think
That it ain't fair
Jim Morrison, Brian Jones etc...

I remember the Enemy coming up to Christchurch to play Mollet St and perform this song on a Telethon, I stayed up all night to relish the moment the Enemy made their TVNZ debut. They eventually appeared at 6:30am and it was all over in a flash. I wish video recorders had been invented, but alas, it'll have to live on in my murky memory.

Toy Love played at my older brothers high school formal in Christchurch. My best friend's mum had a "Love Toy Love" bumper sticker on her Anglia. I still have a mint condition Toy Love LP.

They were so cool.

There was always rumors of a legendary gig somewhere in Christchurch when No Idea played before Toy Love at a community hall and the riot squad had to be called. Can anybody confim ?
