Cucinated

  

Gimme a couple of grams and a one-night stand,

a beer in the hand, with a few of the lads Cucinated

Koo koo koo koo koo koo 

Koo koo koo koo koo koo

 

A couple of fools, breaking into a pool,

forgetting all the rules with a bag of goon

Cucinated

Koo koo koo koo koo koo

on a silver screen, like a Jimmy Dean

Cucinated

Koo koo koo koo koo koo (Cucinated?)

Koo koo koo koo koo koo

 

A couple of girls, on top of the world,

with a pocket of pearls, they’ll never tell

Cucinated

 

(Excuse me, excuse me, what does it even mean?)

 

Back in 1952, in post war Adelaide

The boats arrived, so did organised crime and a billion bricks were laid

They got a Catholic education, some joined a cover band

Fettuccini for brunch and a five-course lunch, while the doggas ate from cans

You see they’d sit around the table, (Ah ha) these people like to mange

They did not speak good English and their mother tongue started to change

They took a simple word like kitchen, then added t e d (Still don’t get it)

Past participle, noun into a verb, plain for all to see c’mon

 

When you find the ceiling on the floor CUCINATED

When you find you’re reeling at the door CUCINATED

Everybody shouting out for more CUCINATED

When you start to feel it on the dance floor yeah

When you find the ceiling on the floor YOU’RE CUCINATED

When you find you’re reeling at the door CUCINATED

Everybody shouting out for more CUCINATED

When you start to feel it on the dance floor yeah

 

Gimme a couple of trans and a one-night stand

A gig in Japan, with a Marty Lubran Cucinated

Koo koo koo koo koo koo 

Koo koo koo koo koo koo

 

A couple of Greeks, hanging out with the freaks

In amongst the geeks, on Hindley Street Cucinated 

 

(So wait, is this like a real word?)

 

Now the times they were a changing, in bon ton Adelaide

They drank homemade wine with their vegemite and brand-new words were made

Instead of smashed you got smashato, instead of teacher you got teachi

And in summer time, when the weather fine, they went to Maslins Beachi (OK)

Mall’s Balls and the Adelaide Crows, the capital of murder

We gave you chicken salt and the paddle-boat, we invented Sia Furler (I think I get it)

And now to this here very day, we carry on what they started

So, let’s spread the word all around the world and all get Cucinated

 

When you find the ceiling on the floor CUCINATED

When you find you’re reeling at the door CUCINATED

Everybody shouting out for more CUCINATED

When you start to feel it on the dance floor yeah

When you find the ceiling on the floor YOU’RE CUCINATED

When you find you’re reeling at the door CUCINATED

Everybody shouting out for more CUCINATED

When you start to feel it on the dance floor yeah

When you find you’re reeling at the door CUCINATED

Everybody shouting out for more CUCINATED

When you start to feel it on the dance floor yeah
