Let's Go Go Go Go Go Bowling // -are his feelings You've got to spare his feelings Shane gave his all Lost control of the ball It went into the ceiling We heard it roll around

Please fellow gentlemen Do not appear amused For he's a rather simple man We've got to spare his feelings We've got to spare his feelings // She was some random chick That my friend was going out with at the time One of her friends lost her phone In the aisle next to mine She said to me, you stole it She would not leave me alone She said to me, you stole my ph-

// I can hear a bandsaw in the distance I volunteer for a community group I take Steve out for his outings I am his friend I give him something to do Sing! My Dad was born in Spain So I have a European passport I explained this to Steve On the bus the other day

I've taken him today to bowl The computer above us is set up for two Teenagers are everywhere Giving us compassionate stares And then it all goes disco at 6pm And Steve starts to dance And then it all goes disco at 6pm And Steve star- // Sally was an old hand at getting them organised Her and I supervised bowling

Every Thursday afternoon We'd haul the girls in the back of the bus She'd give them the usual speech about how they're representing the school She'd threaten them with Saturday detention Even though there's no such thing It always seems to work We'd sit at a vantage point With tea and wedges And watch the girls bowl And Sally would tell me about her life And occasionally we'd have to break up fights Like Miss she told me that I look - //

I co-hosted a show on 2RRR for about two years and in this time I learnt a lot about the community radio experience A memo went around the 2RRR mailing list Said we're three hundred bucks under budget this year Let's have a good time, call it a station event Cause it's gonna disappear If it ain't gettin' spent Now Reid was hung over so it was just me and Abe And two other guys whose names I can't remember We decided to go bowling so we packed into his little car and went to the bowling alley in Fox Studios But they were closed Well actually they were just full We hadn't thought to book a lane So we drove to Top Ryde to go bowling there instead And Abe said that you only go to Top Ryde either to roll old ladies, or to bowl Anyway we got there and they were full too

Advertisement

Cause we hadn't thought to book again And we had nothing to do So we drove to Macquarie And went to the movies And saw My Super Ex-Girlfriend // He had the ball in his hand He never let go He went to swing and he forgot to let go He slid all the way down the lane He slid all the way down the lane //

Advertisement

Don't sleep in an alley If you're not willing to get bowled // "What about it?" // The sound of an owl In the public school grounds The feeling that you should really Get out of the house That somewhere on the CityRail map

Advertisement

You'll find your higher purpose A purpose you could be serving right now If you knew what it was The first girl you can ever remember talking to A website you read one night About abandoned buildings Power plants, humming and burning The sound of pins in the distance A spare room full of arcade games Flashing and burning and begging for credits But it's the middle of the night And no-one is around And now the owl asks himself What role, the bowling alley?

// I saw you holding hands between periods 3 and 4 I felt my heartbeat walkin out the door See I know that you been seein some other guy And that's alright Cause I don't even know your name But it's tricky keeping sane in Year 8 At an all-boys school So I'm a sucker for a pretty face And I'm sure that once we get a taste of each other There'll be no other lover for you and I I got a crush on a Riverside girl I see her once a week

I signed away my Thursday afternoon For this very purpose So I can catch a glimpse of my Riverside girl Now I never had a girl before So I'm not sure How to treat a lady right But how hard can it be? I seen a lotta movies I took a lotta notes I wanna get into your castle And swim around your moat For I have observed That the c-

When I was 15 I went bowling with this Christian youth group Not that I was Christian I just went to see this girl Every Friday we would socialise Went bowling that particular night We were so immature We'd hug and make out all the time We kissed between turns And when they bought us AMF-branded hot dogs We cuddled and kissed between bites And they said

At the far end of the lane Hands emerging from the ball buffer A finger reaching from a drain In the middle of the night // - break Once in a - // During the day I distribute shoes I see all kinds of kids

I see all kinds of moods I see - // The expression on my face When I see what's on his plate I'd never seen ribs before Is that even food That some kid ordered at the party His mom got divorced But the kids still call her By her old last name I guess they don't know any better

// Get it right in your mind This ain't the Flinstones It's fuckin' Top Ryde Get it right in your mind Top what Top Ryde Top world wide pride If you try to bowl me I will smash the cunt And if y-

// (Chloe sings to Michael) Think of the myriad of circumstances That have brought us To this particular place At this particular time Hillsbus are our chauffers It's nice to get out of the Hills Don't you agree Don't you agree The couples that never argue

Advertisement

Break up the fastest And everyone says, they were so happy So I'm glad that we fight Every now and again Every now and again Every now and again I have dreams about you Double decker snowglobes running down the road I'm gonna kick your ass tonight I've been bowling since I was five, Mike Beware my skills //

(Michael sings to another Michael) When I was a kid We'd go bowling every once in a while And the thing I loved the most Was the smooth surfaces And the smooth shoes Where I'd try to impersonate you I'd try to impersonate you // There's a bookstore near the disembodied feet And they are neighbours with a half-cut ball Six feet above your actual feet

// Lord God Almighty on bended knee Talking to the man from Cobbitty Said I'mma get busy I'm a busy bee Down to Top Ryde for date number three Date one and two They went to fancy restaurants Date number three They doin' something he wants But girl is all pouting looking mighty blue She said I like being fancy more than I like you

// Michelle's awkward bowling technique There was something strange About the kink of her arm The girl's a holy roller But you wouldn't bet the farm Cause she's got her own style As she manipulates her limbs She'll gutterball once Then she'll get all y'all pins Cause it' 50/50 20/20 7/10 strike As the boys are disappearing Like Christopher Pike

She works half of the time She does more good than harm What she lacks in consistency She makes up in charm // I'm bowling alone I'm bowling alone I can't fucking believe That I am bowling alone At fucking Top Ryde of all fucking places I hate this run-down dump I am bowling alone

Advertisement

Mate, You're born alone and you die alone Doesn't it make sense that you bowl alone? Apap was supposed to come at half past twelve When I called him at one He said he'd just woken up Why did I think the 501 chicks would come I asked them at 4am three weeks ago Employees give me dirtys cause I'm wasting a lane I can't fucking believe That I am bowling alone I hate Top Ryde I only come here when I have to

Advertisement

I hate Top Ryde I mull the no refund policy When it gradually dawns on me that - // That guy's double parked He's parked right over the white line You can see it from the long entrance The winding L-shape corridor That leads into the bowling alley Overlooking the parking lot We'd just seen Star Trek: Insurrection at Macquarie Owen's mom drove us here to bowl There were people behind glass

Directly behind me As I took a photo of the car And then I posted it to OCAU, OCAU Shamon // I can honestly say That was one of the least awkward date parties I have ever been to I really appreciate what your company does We had so much fun Bowling is an icebreaker And it was convenient for me Cause I live by myself

// She's a icebreaker I'mma dominator Dominatin' grooves to disseminate ya With my owl on my shoulder Knock you down with my Polystyrene Indiana Jones boulder Told ya It's an icebreaker 35-year-old character Grabbed the first girl and he married her It's awkward when

You're single in your 30s And you've never had sufficient Practice flirting Bowling was an icebreaker They met at a speed dating night Held at Top Ryde in 2005 He showed her how to bowl With his body an echo of hers And every single part of them was touching And though you couldn't see a change On the faces of the kids in the next lane They were secretly embarassed Cause it was pretty obvious That chemistry was present

Advertisement

Later they kissed in the carpark Outside her Ford Fiesta Icebreaker He strolled through the empty corridors Contemplating The end to his dry spell The maybes and wants that he had // Looking for that little extra something to brighten up your wedding? Well here at More or Less a Song Inc, our team of ARIA-nomination-runner-up-selection songwriters will personally churn you out a gem custom-written for your most special of days. But please, don't take my word for it!

"Oh it was so nice. It was really special, hearing our names in the song... Yeah, yeah. Yeah it was nice, yeah." Here's a sample of one of our finest commissioned pieces, written for a young Sydney couple named Mark and Fiona. // His name is Mark And her name's Fiona They met at the bowling alley at Top Ryde Her name's Fiona His name is Mark Though the bowling alley's gone Their love is still strong She says "I love how thou art

Advertisement

Til death do us part" And though Top Ryde's gone He's always at the top of her heart // Is it a plane Is it an earthquake No, it's a special offer // If the owl squints hard enough He can make out traces of lanes He can distinguish faces and arcade machines

Advertisement

Meal combos, ball buffers, couples and enemies Shoes of all sizes that always run out Electricity that never runs out An implied promise that it never will Reality creeping up from behind Reality always gets real over time Word That said Though nothing is there anymore If the owl squints hard enough He can see it all A lion's head reflected in a drop of sweat On the forehead of an infant in a pram //

Everyone who worked there was standing outside Everyone who worked there Had gathered in the rain Everyone who worked there Hovering in mid-air // - and it was at this point that I discovered I had the ability to freeze time. And the first time I did it, I watched her bowl. And just as she was about to let go of the ball I turned it on And I was able to appreciate her in a way I've never been able to appreciate anyone or anything since or before, I suppose

Advertisement

It was at Top Ryde You really - how do I say this Rush of detail And I noticed, like, the bra straps under the blue shirt she was wearing And I could, I could see the blood in her arms Flowing through her veins, And it sounded like the ocean And I started thinking about Her digestive system And suddenly it all made sense. // The ghost of Top Ryde Came to me in a dream last night

Advertisement

He spoke to me of reconstruction Spoke excitedly of the new subway line And there were stories, dreams and beauty Buried in folds in his eyes And he carried a bowling ball As he gently said to me "I think I read on the website That we will bowl again." // We will bowl again! //

There's a 1 there's a 1 There's a 2 on either side Fuck what, motherfucker Fuck you, it's Top Ryde // We're goin Disco Bowling We're goin down to Top Ryde We're goin Disco Bowling We're gonna have a good time Just when you thought life couldn't get any better Suddenly you're on your way to Top Ryde You're in the backseat

Advertisement

With your arm around your girl As she looks you in the eye And she says This will be the best night of our lives We're goin Disco Bowling We're goin down to Top Ryde We're goin Disco Bowling We're gonna have a good time No matter how many times I hear Kelis' Milkshake I never get sick of it I never get sick of it They play mixtapes that the kids bring in They liked mine so much

Advertisement

They bought it off me Hey, what can I say, I'm a mixtape machine Six o'clock, lightbulbs spinning blue & green There's a 1 there's a 1 There's a two on either side Bowling in the place to be Top Ryde I remember when we all got AMF-branded hot dogs Hot dogs and watery cups of Diet Coke And this one kid threw them up all over my shoes And the second that the vomit landed The disco lights turned on And you never seen better looking Vomit in your life It was green, it was red It was everything you wanted it to be We're goin Disco Bowling We're goin down to Top Ryde We're goin Disco Bowling We're gonna have a good time
