"Hard Act To Follow" as written by and Phil/davern Jamieson....
You're a hard act to follow
Such a fine lookin' fellow
I hear you're bell's yellow
You're a hard act to swallow
It kind of makes me sick
The way you turn those trickes
Come on and light it up
I want to feel the rush
I'll be shooting for thrills when I
Walk out that door
You say it's hard to care anymore

kills, thrills and Sunday pills
I'm on a mission to kill still cause
Nothin' thrills

you're hooked on coke and hoochie
I want my milk and cookies
You know you're wife looked pretty
I think you're wife looked pretty
I'll be shootin' for thrills when
I walk out that door
You say it's hard to care anymore

kills, thrills and Sunday pills
I'm on a mission to kill still cause
Nothin' thrills
I can't help missin' you still
Well I always will

kills, thrills and Ssunday pills
Alright

I'll be shootin' for thrills when
I walk out that door
Don't turn around and say you
Need me anymore
Poppin' pieces of pills up off the
Lounge room floor
You say it's hard to care anymore

kills, thrills and Sunday pills
I'm on a mission to kill still cause
Nothin' thrills
I can't help missin' you still
Well I always will
Kills, thrills and Sunday pills

alright

    General Commentits about Asprin, Phil said so himself in an interview on 96fm, sums it up with "Sunday Pills", taking asprin to get over a hangover. Decent song in what was a pretty average album by the Grinners

    General CommentI read an article (for the jack awards i think...) where Phil says that this song is about heroin addiction. because he was surprised that it was possible to play a song about heroin addiction at the commonwealth games.

    (it was a long time ago, so sorry if the details are a bit vague)

    Those lines are about heroin. Makes sense now. Makes me wonder if "You're a hard act to follow" is about every other drug after heroin just not cuttting it.. heroin is the best ? Would be a suitable way to start a song about heroin addiction. Suits all the other "nothing thrills" lines too.

    you're hooked on coke and hoochie
    i want my milk and cookies

    Other people are all for cocaine and weed (?), I want something else (milk and cookies is slang for what? heroin ? I dont know)

    That bit about the aspirin does sound right though, about waking up on teh come down and feeling like shit. The down side of heroin. Of course he would have played down the heroin and simply said "hangover" for a radio station..
