Beginning of song.

I will tell you what I hear at the beginning of Strawberry Swing.
Person 1- " [tzah?] one... two... three..."
Person 2- "no it's a bit faster."

I heard this said the first time I heard the song and have had no doubts as to the words.
I may also state:

1. I have purchased an expensive Turtle Beach Headset, which provides very high quality audio.

2. I listen to music a lot and I feel I have become adept at identifying sounds.

3. I have listened to this song under various programs and equilizers, under each one the wrods only seem clearer to me.

4. I have a slight hearing problem but it is not much of a deal. I feel that I can hear well enough. I do not require a Hearing Aid.

I always thought it was Chris saying, "Just a little bit faster..." but then again I'm tragically untalented at determining the words of songs, even favourites such as Strawberry Swing.

Definitely sounded like Guy more than Chris. I think he either says "That's a bit fast/flat".

Haha it's funny coming back to this how it was Chris vs. Guy and it was wild to think it was Eno.

'Champion: Those are actually Brian [Eno's] handclaps at the beginning of that song, and —

Martin: If you listen very closely, you can hear him complaining about the tempo at the beginning of that song.

Champion: That's mostly what he does, complain about tempos.

Martin: [In a booming Brian Eno voice] "Oh, that's much too fast."
