About Walkie Talkie Man

"Walkie Talkie Man" is a song by New Zealand band Steriogram, released in 2004 on the album Schmack! and as a single. The song is widely recognized as bringing Steriogram the majority of their popularity. Its simple, catchy riff and fast-talking verses contribute to the song's popularity, and it attracted even more attention when it was used as the background music to an advert by Apple for the iPod. The song debuted at #19 on the UK Singles Chart in the United Kingdom and reached #14 on the New Zealand Singles Chart in the band's native New Zealand. The riff is almost an exact replica of the one used in "Picture Book" by The Kinks, and some of the riffs are similar to those of "Pretend Best Friend" by Terrorvision. "Warning" by Green Day and "Big Bang Baby" by Stone Temple Pilots also have similar riffs. Exactly 1:59 into the song, lead guitarist Brad Carter sneezes.

Well you're walkin' and a talkin'
And a movin' and a groovin'
And a hippin' and a hoppin'
And a pickin' and a boppin'
Those bods are being bad
You better take a stand
You gonna wake up that thing in your hand
You're looking all around
There is trouble to be found
Make sure when you find it you get to say it loud
Gotta code three, need back up
Bring me my bright pink fluro jacket

He's fat and he don't run too fast (well you're walkin' and a talkin')
But he's faster than me (sure, my walkie talkie man)
Last night at the show we saw him (well you're walkin' and a talkin')
Going out of his tree (go, go, go, go)

Well you're walkin' and a talkin'
And a freakin' and a yellin'
And a bossin' and a speakin'
And a lookin' and a pointin'
Always tell us what to do
With your high top shoes
And you wave your torch
With your black short shorts
Don't let em get away
Don't think they can play
Nail 'em to the wall cause you really need to say
Gotta code three, need back up
Bring me my bright pink fluro jacket

He's fat and he don't run too fast (well you're walkin' and a talkin')
But he's faster than me (sure, my walkie talkie man)
Last night at the show we saw him (well you're walkin' and a talkin')
Going out of his tree (just to trumps)

He's fat and he don't run too fast but he's faster than me
Last night at the show we saw him 
Going out of his tree 

He's fat and he don't run too fast but he's faster than me
Last night at the show we saw him 
Going out of his tree (he's a walkie talkie man)

He's fat and he don't run too fast but he's faster than me
Last night at the show we saw him 
Going out of his tree (bring me my bright black fluro jacket)
