TAKAPUNA WIVES CLUB

Now this could have been about many suburbs in Auckland. Takapuna just had a nice ring to it.  For those people that we personally know in Takapuna, don't be offended if you don't think this song is about you (but it it relates, yes you've been part of the 'observation').

Rich-set kids raised by Stepford parents in a world that is far from most people's reality, reinforced by their neighbours and social groups. When you are 'in' you are in, until you're not of course.

Released 11 August 2016

LYRICS

Bella's got a new man, Prada and a fake tan
Blonde locks, botox, boob lift, detox
She almost has it all

Networks, cocaine, shopping with his millions
PT, liquid lunch, cleansing, brazilians
She seems so happy, darling

Credit card comes at a cost
Valium numbs the freedom lost
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club

Club rules, tight lips, know your place, watch your hips
There's a script, no social slips
Only as good as your game

Don't ask, don't nag, spend it up, don't sag
Gotta keep on top to be a WAG
There's plenty waiting in line

Credit card comes at a cost
Valium numbs the freedom lost
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club

People start talking, you'll find yourself walking
Social outcast, nothing to say
Minihaha it ain't that funny
When the tide comes in and washes you away

Credit card comes at a cost
Valium numbs the freedom lost
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club

Remember you were free, money was your own
Friends you had were real, not a Stepford clone
Come now dry your eyes, reclaim your sense of self
Happiness is more than measured by your wealth

Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club
Trouble in the Takapuna Wives Club

Don't know what it takes to make her happy
Too damn sad to leave her sugar daddy
Rich girl, poor choice, lost her own voice
Sold her soul to the Takapuna Wives Club
