"No Aphrodisiac" by The Whitlams

Transcribed by Daniel Meijer 

This song is very simple, harmonically, even with the embellishments of
the string section (Sydney's Fourplay - check them out!), but this doesn't
detract from the song's impact. Love Tim Freedman's lyrics!!

Chords as follows - played by piano or arpeggiated by guitar. These are
just the chords, voice them as you like, but on the CD, in the arpeggios,
the guitar plays all chords as barre chords:


  Dm  Bb  Gm  Am
--5---6---3---5----
--6---6---3---5----
--7---7---3---5----
--7---8---5---7----
--5---8---5---7----
--x---6---3---5----

The arpeggios are picked:

     Gm       Am     Dm
--------------------------
---------3------5-----6---
-------5------5------7----
-----5------7------7------
-----------------5--------
--3------5----------------





Dm
A letter to you on a cassette
Bb
'cause we don't write anymore
Dm
gotta make it up quickly - 
Bb
there's people asleep on the second floor


Gm              Am          Bb
There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Gm            Am                Dm
truth, beauty, and a picture of you.

Dm   Bb   Dm   Bb

          Dm             
You'll be walking your dog in a few hours

I'll be asleep in my brother's house
Dm
You're a thousand miles away 
     Bb
with food between your teeth
Gm          Am                 Bb
Come up for summer, I've got a place near the beach
Gm                       Am   Dm
There's room for your dog

Gm              Am          Bb
There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
Gm            Am                Dm
truth, beauty, and a picture of you.

              Gm             Am                       Dm
Youth, truth, beauty, fame, boredom, and a bottle of pills

Gm             Am         Dm
You shouldn't leave me alone

There's no aphrodisiac like loneliness
      Gm                Am             Dm
Bare feet like a tomboy, and a crooked smile

              Gm                   Am          Dm              
Truth, youth, beauty, fame, boredom, red hair, no hair, innocence, 
    Gm    Am              Dm
Saturday, and a picture of you
Gm          Am              Dm
A letter to you on a cassette

You shouldn't leave me alone

Gm                  Am                      Dm
Forty and shaved, sexy, wants to do it all day
       Gm                       Am                 Dm
with a gun-totin' trigger-happy trannie named Kinky Renee
      Gm                         Am
Tired teacher twenty-eight seeks regular meetings
     Dm
for masculine muscular nappy-clad brutal breeding
Gm                   Am                              
while his wife rough-wrestles with a puppy all 
Dm                                          Gm
aquiver on a wine-soaked strobe-lit asiatic hall of mirrors
Am             Dm
and a dash of loneliness
        Gm     Am            Dm
There's no aphrodisiac quite like it 

              Gm              Am              Dm              
Truth, youth, beauty, fame, boredom, red hair, no hair, innocence, 
       Gm  Am               Dm
impunity, and a picture of you
        Gm         Am
I got a video setup me love you short time
Dm
she pay me suck his finger with some fine wine
Gm     Am       Dm
and a dash of loneliness

              Gm              Am              Dm              
Truth, youth, beauty, fame, boredom, red hair, no hair, innocence, 
           Gm           Am             Dm
awkwardness, impunity, and a picture of you.
