"Sly" as written by and Felix Riebl....
If frisy hair was a metaphor
for festival time
then this woman is a goddess
of that festival shrine, met her
- at a jam
in that garden of sorts
I must confess god bless
some impure thoughts
“show us the money”
was the call of the night
but no money could have bought
even a piece of her pride, there might
have been a sea of people
I don’t know, because
all I could see
was how this woman she glowed so

-Aeh it’s a pleasure to meet you
ya look like one incredible creature
wanna treat you fine
lets dance and grind
get so funk-inflicted it’s a crime
you’re divine you’re sublime
and well you blow my mind

She caterpillar so good
that all the greeks go “killa”
break and enter take ya like a glass of milk
then “spill ya”
saw her coming what a scene
what I mean is
she got that sex coffee beam
but she tastes like vanilla
well alright she ignite
when we hit the floor
like the vroom on a V8 super commodore
now if it makes a good story
well it’s just worthwhile
with her’s like dealing stories
in that sprinkla style and so

-Aeh it’s a pleasure to meet you
ya look like one incredible creature
wanna treat you fine
lets dance and grind
get so funk-inflicted it’s a crime
you’re divine you’re sublime
and well you blow my mind

    General CommentIt's a song about Felix's girlfriend. Basically the first verse sets that up; she has frizzy hair and he met her at WOMADelaide festival. The rest of the song is just him being.. him. It's fun.

    General CommentThese lyrics are incomplete. The last (third) verse is missing. That was the main reason I looked at this page to begin with - wanted to know what he was saying in the last verse.

    General CommentDo the Louie(?)
    Do the Genie (?)
    Do the boom-shak
    Hit the sack
    Back seat's feeling alright

    Do the Monkey shuffle
    Rocket with a funk stride
    Do the late checkout
    With a do not disturb sign
    Outside

    Now do the sly

    General Comment'Boom shak hit the sack backstage feeling alright'
    'Light checker with a "do-not-disturb" sign outside'

    As in, having some fun behind the scenes at a show. ;)

    General CommentQuestion: What does "killa" mean when shouted by Greeks? I tried babelfish, but I think whoever put down the lyrics did so by ear, cuz it wasn't there. Also, it really helps to watch the music video for this if you're trying to understand it. It's not so abstract seeming with the physical story being performed alongside the song. However: "break and enter take ya like a glass of milk" UM...WHA? I don't really get that part.
