Turbo 
Words & Music by Clifford T Ward

 Audio sample
One of Cliff's humorous compositions: it has a slightly more up-beat tempo than many of his songs, and a very catchy rhythm. It first appeared on his 'Sometime Next Year' album in 1986, and was released as a single later that year.


Turbo  

Have you got a turbo wrist watch?
Got a turbo vacuum?
Have you got a turbo washing machine?
An' a turbo car?
When you ask 'em what it means
They look blank and say "it's the latest thing".

Turbo - what does it mean?
Well don't tell me - I don't wanna know!

I've had a turbo watch for ages
Gains five minutes every day
The wife goes turbo when she vacuums
She calls it "hurry up"
The washing machine's always been turbo
We kick it and it starts again
As for the car - don't say "turbo" in front of her please
She gets ratty - and won't start.

When you ask 'em what it means
They look blank and say "it's the latest thing".

Turbo - what does it mean?
Don't tell me - I don't wanna know!

Must be fast, powerful, great
Better - best - consummate, get -

Turbo - what does it mean?
Don't tell me - I don't wanna know!

Turbo - what does it mean?
Don't tell me - I don't wanna know!
