- - Lyrics - -

I sold shells on the shores of hell
but Tommy did the walkin' for me
I rang bells over poisoned wells
but Tommy did the walkin' for me

he can walk, he can walk, he can walk, he can walk
he can crush you to dust like a cheap piece of chalk
you'll be your own outline
at the scene of Tommy's crime
he can walk, he can walk, he can walk, he can walk
I'm not there, I swear, I swear, cause

Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'

I pulled carts in the darkest parts
but Tommy did the walkin' for me
I stopped starts and the heart to hearts
but Tommy did the walkin' for me

I'm at home sleepin'
or I'm sniffing glue
I keep my mouth shut so I don't have to
tell the truth
I bought your bible
and the 25th
I bought my soul back
and this time I'm keepin' it

Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'
Tommy did the walkin'

Da da da dada dadada
But Tommy did the walkin' for me


from Chiptunes = WTFLOL, released May 6, 2013

It was exciting enough just to get the fantastically weird Squares in on this project from the get go (how I'd manage that, you ask? Two words: "SQUARE waves". 8). And then to have them choose The J. Arthur Keenes Band's monster track "Tommy Did The Walkin" to give their folktastic treatment to, just... WUT. O.O Mix in Sam Mulligan's delightful vocals and a small choir of Ryns behind him and you've got a recipe for something absolutely *MAGICAL*.

Honestly, this team up needs to happen again. For like, I dunno, AN ENTIRE ALBUM maybe? *DEFINITELY*.
