The Lyrics

Just like the original, not everything appears as it seems.
I found it in a store down on Main and 4th
Where the sell old things
And they spray for bugs like ebola
B-o-l-a bola

It looked purple green
And I pounced on the chance
I plunked down the cash
And for fifty bucks I had a sofa
S-o-f-a sofa
Sa sa sa sa
Sofa

Well I'm not your world's most athletic guy
But after thirteen flights
All of my bones were tired
And cried "Sofa!"
Sa sa sa sa
Sofa

Well when I'm pooped,
Then my body demands
That I drop like a stone
And then snore like a man
On a sofa
Sa sa sa sa
Sofa

Well I slept that day
But through the night
Something was off
Not feeling right
I sat straight up
And with three eyes did see
A lad's little face saying
"Hey mom, come see!"

Well I'm not the world's most faint hearted guy
But when I looked in it's eyes,
Well I almost died
On my sofa
So so so so
Sofa
So so so so
Sofa

I shook sleep away
I jumped for the door
I'm chilled to the core
I got close to my keys
Then it blocked my path, and stared at me

So there's no way
That my words can relate
What my eyes beheld
On my strangest day on a sofa
So so so so
Sofa

Earth is on Mars
And Mars is on Earth
It' knick knack paddy whacked
Trippy world on a sofa
So so so so
Sofa

Well I'd left Mars
Just a year before
And I'd never ever
Saw a human before
The human smiled
And shook me by the paw
And said "Mister Martian
I'm gonna show you to ma."

I'm not of this world,
But I'm quite a fan
And I know how to rest
Just like you human's can
That's on a sofa
Sa sa sa sa
Sofa
Sa sa sa sa
Sofa.

Unusual, but very cool. 555

I was very comfortable reading this!

As someone who recently got a sofa, I can appreciate this. Should've used an elevator. Anyway, it's a modern classic. 555's

As the reigning King of Sofas, I can state that this parody was "Sofa-King Good"! ;D

Aha-- the sofas take their revenge for years of suppression and abuse... A fun and imaginative tale! 555

OS was soooo bad that anything's an improvement, but this was excellent. When you're really in trouble: When *actual* potatoes start growing out of the sofa! 555 lbs of couch poTaTo to you!

Very odd twist on this one!

I miss my sofa from 2008... Come to think of it, 1973 is starting to look a lot better. Now, if I can get back out of character, this was a great idea, and I can't believe no one's tried this before. No need to cushion the blow: You get a five. Now, can you turn "Love Shack" into "Love Seat"? Maybe you can do something with "Couch" or "Sofa Bed" or "Sectional."

I'm happy this got the responses it did. I thought it was a sleeper (rim shot!).

Jonathan S.- Exactly what I was shooting for, so thanks for the v/c.
Mark S- Your station for relaxation!
Phil- Elevators are nice, but...wait a minute...gotta TT moment going. Thanks for the v/c and the inspiration PN.
OMR- Did you, uh, say what I thought you said???!!!Thanks for the v/c.
FG- Revenge is a dish best served on the couch in front of the TV. Thanks!
SSG- Didn't like the original??? Are you from Mars or something? And thanks for the potatoes. I need to starch my shirts after I get off the couch ;-)!
Meriadoc- Glad you liked the twist!
MP- Took me a moment, and then I remembered the series. Too bad it ended early...on Mars. Nice ideas, one and all, and thanks for the v/c and more furniture fodder.

That's how "La-Z-Boy" got it's name! A sofa is the best place to lounge in. Great work, Warren, you cuddled up well with this one. Snuggle up with 555's!
TT - March 10, 2010 - Report this comment
Very flattered (I *think*) to now be a metaphor for spin-off inspirational moments .. (looks in crystal ball)
"Operator" (many different songs -- Mary Wells, Jim Croce, Grateful Dead)
"Elevator"

Eh?

And yes, OMR said exactly what you thought. I learned only today of your preference to avoid the bluer language and songs, so might best let him know. (seious)

TJC- Thanks for the v/c. And just curious...do your initials every pop up in the security code window?
CMM- Couches are God's gift to men! Thanks for the note and the vote!
TT- Those songs popped up almost immediately. My mind quickly went to Croce, and it's already been done well. I'm going to take a different path using the elevator motif. Got a few ideas brewing. And as to blue-ing the language, it's not my preference, but I don't get offended very easily either. So no worries here. OMR, pun away!
