Split Enz

Split Enz were one of the most successful New Zealand musical acts of the 1980s. Formed in the early 1970s and variously featuring Phil Judd and brothers Tim Finn and Neil Finn, the band would go on to achieve chart success in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada ‒ most notably with their 1980 single "I Got You" - and build a cult following elsewhere. Their musical style was eclectic, incorporating influences from art rock, vaudeville, swing, punk, rock, new wave, and pop. Split Enz established a reputation for a highly distinctive visual style, thanks partly to their colourful, offbeat costumes and hairstyles. more »

Make a move, get off your spine 
Shake your leg, tow the line 
Mum's the word, the doctor said 
Try your hand at this instead 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do your best 

Risk you take when on the make 
Is falling down upon the ground 
That's the breaks a bone or two 
Bring's it home it's up to you 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do - your best 

They're gonna move my spine? 

Make a move, get off your spine 
Shake your leg, tow the line 
Mum's the word, the doctor said 
Try your hand at this instead 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do your best 
La-de-da-da-da-de-dah
