Lyrics

On Tony Hawk's I'd rather play
As Tas Pappas, back in the day
The king of vert, Hawk stole his crown


If he had the guts, Tas'd taken him down

Vertruvian Men, Partners in crime, Tas and Ben
Flip tricks on, the Vert ramps
Made the best Pro's look like gramps
Up their sleeves, the main drawcard
And Tas is, the new vanguard
Who beat Hawk with his ribe broken
On top of the world stoked
Ruach Adonai, the secret place of the most high
And now I know who I am, on my way to Prahran

But my side is the truth
My side is the truth
My side is the truth
Yeah my side is the truth
So here's the Truth

On Tony Hawks I'd rather play,
As Tas Pappas, back in the day
The King of Vert, Hawk stole his crown,
If he had the gut's, Tas'd taken him down
But Hawk flew away, When Tas did the time,
And took the applause
When Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Whoa

On the road to salvation, Tas went, through damnation
All paths, will be made straight, forewarned, of forlorn fate
They came from St Albans, Rock Stars, prosaic bogans
The rich Irony, of poor Humility

But my side is the truth
My side is the truth
My side is the truth
Yeah my side is the truth
So here's the Truth

On Tony Hawks I'd rather play,
As Tas Pappas, back in the day
The King of Vert, Hawk stole his crown,
If he had the gut's, Tas'd taken him down
But Hawk flew away, when Tas did the time,
And took the applause
When Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Whoa

On Tony Hawks I'd rather play,
As Tas Pappas, back in the day
The King of Vert, Hawk stole his crown,
If he had the gut's, Tas'd taken him down
But Hawk flew away, when Tas did the time,
And took the applause
When Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
Tas got the nine
When Tas got the nine

And that's nine!
