Call it art, call it cult
Trudy was a friend of old
Call her eyes, such a fright,
She's sailing on a wave of light, oh Trudy.

She just called to tell me
'We've got names on every door'
She's in the self-destruct mode
For one big night to end it all

Oh Trudy, you're with the meanest boy in the hills
I know he's groovy, but he only loves you when he's on pills
And you can call it what you want to call it,
but you know it's disco biscuit love.

Trudy walks a different road
Truly she would try it all
Leave your head in the cloakroom
Leave your heart at the door
Oh, Trudy

You touched the untouchable
Because this earth is no fun at all
And now when Cindy plays at the disco
I don't see you on the floor

Oh Trudy, you're with the meanest boy in the hills
I know he's groovy, but he only loves you when he's on pills
And it's that heart of yours, it's not your body that makes you ill
You're so sick with his disco biscuit love

She's falling from grace at the disco
She's out of her place at the disco
Saw your face in the crowd
I called out, but the beat's too loud
I saw your face in the crowd, I know it's gonna be alright

Oh Trudy, you're with the meanest boy in the hills
I know he's groovy, but he only loves you when he's on pills
And it's that heart of yours, it's not your body that makes you ill
You're so sick with his disco biscuit love

Now she's falling asleep at the disco
Who's falling asleep at the disco
Now she's falling asleep at the disco
Who's falling asleep?

    General CommentWell for starters, this is a great song. one quick reference is the 'meanest boy in the hills' hills refering to sydney in which alot of the landscape is built on up and down hills. disco biscuit obviously refers to ecstacy. This song (in my eyes) is about a friend who is selling herself short to a guy that is obviously using her. The singer or writer is worried about her and doesn't like the way she's being treated.

    great song. "hurt me"'s great aswell

    General Commentdoes Trudy (the main character) die at the end? an overdose perhaps? "she's falling asleep . . . "

    General CommentMaybe this is too simple, but on the most simple level i can muster i see a friend worried sick about a girl and what she's going through for this guy.
    I don't see 'Trudy' as a pathetic girl just longing after a guy, maybe she's really intelligent but he's her achillies heel...

    General Commentlistened to this song over a 1000 times and it does not get old! i always can realate the story back to my life.. this girl has an unrequited crush on a grrovy boy from the hills (hippy unt) who comes to her for sex when he is high. she is sick with his disco biscuit love and this ultimately sees her to her demise.

    My InterpretationThis song, I feel, is pretty easy to decipher. Trudy is a girl who is using drugs. Namely, ecstasy. The singer is one of her friends who is becoming more distant from her as she falls more into the drug scene. "The meanest boy in the hills" is the guy she's with or guys she's hooking up with at parties who "only love you when he's on pills" because ecstasy makes you feel more intimate with someone. Basically, they don't really love her. "Trudy" may find them "groovy" to hang out with, but in the end it is not true.

    General CommentNah, I don't see it as any kind of overdose, I took it to mean she's partying all the time and not getting any sleep, so she falls asleep at the disco. I've lived this kind of life, and it fits very well. Never know when it'll hit you and you just konk out.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a raver girl who's super into her raver bf. The both go to these events and take molly/ecstasy/MDMA and experience that "disco biscuit love", that connection you feel while on that stuff. It gets old when it doesn't translate over into real life.
