Tintern Abbey - Vacuum Cleaner (1967)

Coming from London, England, this group was only active from 1967 until 1968 before breaking up. In their short time, they were only able to release one single. The single, released in December 1967, featured the A-side, “Beeside,” and the B-side heard below. The group intended for another single to be released in April of 1968, but it never came together. To make up for their lack of a release, the group hoped to put out a full length album in August 1968, but that too wasn’t meant to be as the group had disbanded by that time.

As mentioned, this song is the B-side to a single released by the group in December 1967. It currently appears on many ‘60s psychedelic music compilations, most notably Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts from the British Empire and Beyond, 1964–1969. The original single it appeared on is currently sought after by collectors. If you have a copy, it could be worth well over US$1,000.

Lyrics:

Everybody's got new clothes
Make’ me feel kind of old
But in my heart, I really know
No, clothes don't buy my soul
Fix me up with your sweet dose
Now I'm feelin' like a ghost

Break it up, break it up
Let's have it now, girl
Don't you know I need it
All the time?

Fix me up with your sweet dose
Now I'm feelin' like a ghost
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
(All the time)

Now my head is really spinnin’
Maybe now I'll show some willing
To help you with the house work
If you want to

Break it up, break it up
Let's have it now, girl
Don't you know I need it
All the time?

Fix me up with your sweet dose
Now I'm feelin' like a ghost
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
(All the time)
All the time

All the time

Everybody's got new clothes
Make’ me feel kind of old
But in my heart I really know
No, clothes don't buy my soul
Fix me up with your sweet dose
Now I'm feelin' like a ghost

Break it up, break it up
Let's have it now, girl
Don't you know I need it
All the time?

Fix me up with your sweet dose
Now I'm feelin' like a ghost
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
(All the time)
All the time
All the time
