lyrics

Vinyl Junkie

I don’t buy mp3s I’m in love with vinyl
It’s not snobbery it’s about survival
I’ve got a steady hand when I drop the needle
Collecting lots of bands especially The Beatles

I got a long way to go but I know that I’ll never reach the end
And my collection’s not complete and I’m becoming obsolete
can I amend my ways?

Got an enquiring mind, I examine labels
Know what I want to find leaning over the table
At the record fair, at the vintage clothes store
You’ll always find me there trying to find a new score

I got a long way to go but I know that I’ll never reach the end
And my condition’s down as used my inner sleeve has been abused can I amend my ways?

I see it as my goal to find the rarest pressings
Something I can’t control spent too long obsessing
But it’s my pension plan and it’s appreciating
So can you dig it man my ears have got mint rating

I got a long way to go but I know that I’ll never reach the end
And now my record’s getting stuck and I believe I’m in a rut can I amend my ways?

La la la la la I’m a vinyl junkie
I got to get my fix I’m a vinyl junkie
I got to get my hit I’m a vinyl junkie
