Lyrics

Me no bubbletious [Kylie]
Me smoke heavy tar [Robbie]
Me be groovin' slowly where you are [Kylie]
Notify your next of kin [Robbie]
'Cause you're never coming back [Robbie]
I've been dropping beats since Back in Black [Kylie]

And we'll paint by numbers [Robbie & Kylie]
'Til something sticks [Robbie & Kylie]
Don't mind doing it for the kids [Robbie & Kylie]
So come on take a ride yeah [Robbie]
Jump on board feel the high [Robbie]
'Cause the kids are alright [Robbie]

You've got a reputation [Kylie]
Well I guess that can be explored [Robbie]
You're dancing with the chairman of the board [Kylie]
Take a ride on my twelve cylinder symphony [Robbie]
But if you got other plans [Robbie]
The purpose of a woman is to love her man [Kylie]

And we'll paint by numbers [Robbie & Kylie]
'Til something sticks [Robbie & Kylie]
Don't mind doing it for the kids [Robbie & Kylie]
So come on jump on board [Robbie]
Take a ride yeah [Robbie]
Jump on board feel the high [Robbie]
'Cause the kids are alright [Robbie]

I'm gonna give it all of my loving [Robbie]
It's gonna take up all of my love [Robbie]
I'm gonna give it all of my loving [Robbie]
It's gonna take up all of my love [Robbie]
I'm gonna give it all of my loving [Robbie]
It's gonna take up all of my love [Robbie]
I'm gonna give it all of my loving [Robbie]
It's gonna take up all of my love [Robbie]

Come down from the ceiling [Kylie]
I didn't mean to get so high [Robbie]
I couldn't do what I wanted to do [Kylie]
When my lips were dry [Kylie]
You can't just up and leave me [Robbie]
I'm a singer in a band [Robbie]
Well I like drummers baby [Kylie]
You're not my bag [Kylie]

Jump on board [Robbie & Kylie]
Take a ride, yeah [Robbie & Kylie]
Jump on board feel the high, yeah [Robbie & Kylie]

Jump on board [Robbie & Kylie]
Take a ride, yeah [Robbie & Kylie]
Jump on board feel the high, yeah [Robbie & Kylie]

I'm an honorary Sean Connery, born '74 [Robbie]
There's only one of me [Robbie]
Single-handedly raising the economy [Robbie]
Ain't no chance of the record company dropping me [Robbie]
Press be asking do I care for sodomy [Robbie]
I don't know, yeah, probably [Robbie]
I've been looking for serial monogamy [Robbie]
Not some bird that looks like Billy Connolly [Robbie]
But for now I'm down for ornithology [Robbie]
Grab your binoculars, come follow me [Robbie]

I like to drink it up but never like to sink it, uh-uh [Robbie]
I like to drink it up but never like to sink it, uh-uh [Robbie]
I like to drink it up but never like to sink it, uh-uh [Robbie]
uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh [Robbie]
I like to drink it up but never like to sink it, uh [Robbie]
