about

Digitally recorded by Orphans songwriter/founder member Ross Buncle. This is one of the last Orphans songs, played only once publicly - at the band's final gig at the legendary Hernando's Hideaway, Perth, August 1978.

Set in the unusual time signature of 7/8, Teenage Lust is one of the Orphans songs Buncle rates most highly. This version is a 2005 re-write that was originally included on "Orphans Revisited", the title of Disc 2 of the original double Orphans album, "Exposed". It is one of 3 songs on "Orphans Revisited" to be recorded entirely in digital format, rather than digitally remastered from analogue tape.

Re-write notwithstanding, every effort has been made to stay true to the sound and spirit of The Orphans, and to retain a dynamic live feel, right down to using the same MXR distortion pedal to attain the Orphans' guitar sound, and referencing Max Kittler's original drumming.

lyrics

TEENAGE LUST

When you're up this high baby, don't look down
You're goin' too fast and you can't slow down
Don't say no and don't say maybe
You know you wanna be my baby

Flowin' like a river deep and wide
Hot as lava deep inside
Pounding hard like jungle drums
Hold on fast, baby here it comes, it's like
Teenage lust
It's like teenage lust
Like teenage lust
Like teenage lust

Baby, baby I'll do anything you want me to
Be your master, be your slave, I'll do it all for you
On your feet or on your knees
Any way you want, I'm beggin' please
And when you think we're through
I got some more for you.

Tiger tiger burning bright
In the darkness of the night
Feel his breath upon your back
Brace yourself for his attack
Banshees howlin' at the moon
They want you bad and they want you soon
Vampire forces breakin' loose
Don't resist it, it's no use, it's like
Teenage lust
It's like teenage lust
Like teenage lust
Like teenage lust

Baby, baby I'll do anything you want me to
Be your master, be your slave, I'll do it all for you
On your feet or on your knees
Any way you want, I'm beggin' please
And when you think we're through
I got some more for you.
