"That Beep" as written by and Cameron Bird....
Kid can you wake up
Boy it ain't long till the warning arrives
And it's the shake up
That's got me waiting for your dynamite

I never knew your middle name
No need to play that game
I called your doctor up
And he promised me pain was fun

Tried a little bit of moving on
It lasted way too long
Dressed up as bubblegum
I'm stuck to your shoe, let's run
Can you give me that

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Two timing in your state of mind
These feet got left behind
We dived so deep
We'd keep in touch with your buried bones

Can I get a little fading on?
Fade it, fade it, don't be long
Dressed up as bubblegum
I'm stuck to your shoe, let's run
Can you give me that

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Did they mistake us
For an eight that's turning into a nine?
Said if I played the evil lover
Can I trade you for your alibi?

Done living like a runaway
Break those hearts so carefully
Done living like a runaway

Every time that I turn around
I let you down, you read my mind
Bring the beat back

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

You got that beep, that beep, that bop, bop
You got that beep, that beep, that bop, bop
You got that beep, that beep, that bop, bop
You got that beep, that beep, that beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

    General CommentI think the line is:

    I called your doctor up and he promised me pain was fun

    That's what I hear, anyway.

    General CommentThe lyrics are posted on their myspace blog.

    1) Second verse starts, "Two timing your state of mind"
    2) "play the evil lover"--present tense.
    3) officially, it's spelled "That Boh b-Boh" not that it really matters.

    Decent song. The new album can't come soon enough.

    General Comment Cool! Thanks heeps, i was really struggling to work out the "Said if I played the evil lover can I trade you for your alibi" part.
    Also I would like to comment on two parts i dont think are right:
    1) "I called your doctor up and he promised me pain was fun
    2) "(Bring the beep back)"

    Thanks! Have a look and try listening again and see what you think. Also with the (Bring the beep back) I think it makes heeps more sence because he is pretty much saying bring the beep back. lol. Thanks again..

    General Comment Also, i thought I might share that i got to go to sound relief with my Dad. I never really knew much about Architecture In Helsinki, But after seeing them then i really like them now!! I really like this song and i still don't know a lot of there songs, maybe eight. But out of the songs i know this one is probebly my favourite... then maybe wishbone.

    General CommentMy interpretation:

    "Boy it ain't long till the warning arrives
    And it's the shake up
    That's got me waiting for your dynamite"

    Being in a relationship with someone who blows up like dynamite. The 'Beep' being the warning of an explosion.

    "Dressed up as bubblegum
    I'm stuck to your shoe, let's run"

    Being walked on, abused.

    Cute song :P
