The Lyrics

Happy to Tether

Imagine me and you, tied to
A bed frame, where velvet ropes bite
And hold us tight.
To kink the one I'm thinkin' of,
A square knot's right.
So happy to tether.
She will tie me up while I'm supine,
And that will help elongate meŚ
Straighten my spine.
Image of Justine. . .well, maybe
That's out of lineŚ
Not quite THAT much tether.
I can't see me knottin' nobody but you.
A Duncan Phyfe
Chair is what I would next like to tie you toŚ
Don't tell my wife!
Me and you, knotted in two.
Some say that dental floss is nice,
But it must be
The waxed kind, so you don't get bruised. . .
Tie carefully,
If it's used to tether.
I can free myself and then I'll unknot you,
Until tonight.
We're not uptight; we're just free spirits who like
To be uptied.
So happy to tether,
Sometimes we like leather,
Not in humid weather,
We're birds of a feather,
So happy to tether.

Nuthin like a bit of bondage in the afternoon! 555. John- what's the Duncan Phyfe line about?
Paul Robinson - June 01, 2004 - Report this comment
John - Another excellent job. 5's. Say, Kristof, would that be "Afternoon Re-tied"?

Thanks, guys. Duncan Phyfe was an (18th century, I think) furniture designer who lent his name to a style of furniture.

Whew, that's a relief! Duncan's Wife plays the Fife, you know. 5's

Johnny D, which Monkees? I've got a "Steppin' Stone" in the works.

"Daydream Believer" = "Gaycream Receiver" about a lesbian gal whose gay neighbor helps her out with a, ahh, donation..... ;-)

Johnny D - Our smutty little minds will be eagerly anticipating your upcoming parody of "Daydream Believer" (Originally written by one of my favorites artists, John Stewart, the one that was in the Kingston Trio in the early 60's, not the 'Jon Stewart' on Comedy Central).

JD, I can just image what you're going to do with the "homecoming queen" line. Mine is "Schlep This Bone."
