Martin

Actually, it's "turlet".

Liz B.

D'oh, typo, thanks Martin, it's been fixed.

Not Ted Leo

Rough lyrics transcription:

Big Steve is on the drum set
Counting it four by four
Little Jimmy jamming the six string
Giving the people more
Count Violent's bringing the low end
Cause that's all that he knows what to do
And my name's Ted
That's what I said
And the Western world will perish in fifteen years

And then in the Year Sixteen
When the world is clean
Clean of this hipster scene
All their ghosts will scream
For what their souls have seen
And the tapas they could have been eating

But the world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
And we're all gonna die

Oh the world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
So don't ask why
No no

Nothing to drink
I've got nothing to eat
I'm barely alive
I'm dead on my feet

The East River boiled
And felched up a cadaver
The corpse walked to Enid's
For a drink and some palaver

And the world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
And we're all gonna die

Yeah the world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
The world is in the terlet
So don't ask why

Cause the proof is in the pudding
The proof is in the pudding
The proof is in the pudding
And you don't ask why

I said the proof is in the pudding
The proof is in the pudding
The proof is in the pudding
So give it a try

It
Was
Supposed
To be
My
Moment
Of triumph
