The Lyrics

For a Youtube listen to the OS of America's "Sister Golden Hair" click HERE


Well I had a real nice birthday,
Fish I caught I mount wood pressed.
Will I get some bites at Bass Bay?
Got a fold chair, new ice chest.
I already know I'll falter,
I can't work assembly line,
Buildin' wooden chair can take the end of time.

Well I keep on readin' 'bout you,
Mister Foldin' Chair device.
It's a nice one given out to,
I can't see how it's devised.
Snap the A-4 correspondin',
To the A-2 of same kind.
It's that "Do-nut" ring,
I just can't seem to find.

Should the seat be left of middle,
With my feet up in the air?
They just love to make a riddle,
Of assembling a chair.

As I try to make it,
Maligned I'm sayin',
I'd just might break it.

------ Guitars Instrumental ------

Junked in heap this thing's about due,
Mr. Foldin' Chair demise.
What I tell the giver 'bout you?
Can't let see I so despise.
I'll try once more though despondant,
snap in one-two by design,
But I'm just not keen,
Not of that sort of mind.

See it beat me as I fiddle,
I've conceded to a chair.
I'm a toss this thing in middle,
Off the bluff at Lake St. Claire.

Catch a fish. I'll bake it
My lure's delayin',
Think chair did take it.

Do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah wah wah

Do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah
a do wah a do wah wah wah


------ FADE ------

Sounds like a nice birthday...and I'd have as much luck as you trying to put the dang thing together :) Fun song.

Jeff - This parody is really about me. I tend to have 10 thumbs when it comes to this sort of thing. Thanks for expressing your views on it.

Nearly fell out of my folding chair chuckling. And, thanks for an idea.

I picture Snoopy dealing with the evil lounge-chair before the Thanksgiving feast with this one. Nice stuff.
alvin - February 18, 2008 - Report this comment
paints a wonderfully amusing mental picture...reminded me of the a cartoon i saw once where some character fights a folding chair
2Eagle - February 18, 2008 - Report this comment
I had the same thought as Agrimorfee wrile I read this. An ode to one of life's aggrivations.
Patrick - February 18, 2008 - Report this comment
I like this a lot better than the original song. You incorporated a lot of the phrasing too. Well done.
AFW - February 18, 2008 - Report this comment
Funny write...folding chairs are difficult enough to open and set up, even without trying to assemble one

Sir John - I'm jealous - you get to enjoy your chair, mine just snags my lures. Glad to have given you an idea, as if you don't have enough already. Thanks!

Ag - Ah yeah, something like that. heh heh. I got the mental image projected I see. Much appreciate your comment.

Alvin - Ditto on what I said to Ag. I seem to have remembered that same cartoon while writing this. Glad you weighed in my friend.

2Eagle - Aggrivating themes usually work well for satire. People identify with it and thanks for your identity revelation.

Patrick, really? That is quite a compliment. The OS is no dog in my book. Thank-you!

AFW - AMEN - I knew you would like this one. It is kind of your style. I learn stuff from you, Alvin and guys like Spaff. Wish Spaff would have weighed in - he did a really good parody on this song for Thanksgiving. It is memorable. Thanks good buddy.

LCC - Whatever got you into your current mood, I want some. I like your comment M'lady, methinks. I wouldst have the wence prepare me catch, but alas the seat taketh my bait.

Ah, Guy, sounds like you got the chair that Merry and I previously sang about! What a good job you did (with the song, not with the chair, heh heh...)

I was about to say, "I wonder what Merry and Pippin" feel about this parody when I saw Peregrin's comment. Well.... This certainly recollected their parody in my mind, although you had different ideas with the song than they did.
Michael E Cormier - March 24, 2008 - Report this comment
I actually had a parody in mind last year of the same song with the same title, but didn't pursue it. Gonna abandon that idea now, as this parody far surpasses any attempt that I made on it. Good job 555
Peregrin - March 24, 2008 - Report this comment
Clarification! I have no problem at all with you having re-done the same idea, Guy. My last comment is the one that matters. I enjoyed your parody!

Yours was about how you couldn't put it together, ours was about how it attacked. Not the same in my book :)

Sir Guy, Please don't take this down . . . as i do enjoy reading it; . . . You see, I ' m a "Foldin' Chair" myself . . .

(SOTM) I've yet to do a DIY thing, though I have this hunch I'd be good at it, as I'm good at following step-by-step instructions (Transformers help with that). Nice little tale you got going here. Me likey.

"They just love to make a riddle of assembling a chair": no kidding. I spent 30 minutes tonight on a light fixture just to change the bulb. A chair might take me days. I liked these lyrics better than the original's. Tossing the chair into a lake made for some great visuals.

(SOTM) I read this one when it had just been posted and liked it quite a bit.
Below Average Dave - March 31, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I will say this one had some grammar sacrifices for pacing as well, but they were a bit subtle. It was a cute parody, and reminds me of Merry & Pippin's parody of ironically the same song. . .

I've never understood how people have problems with folding deckchairs, but I have watched those who have (with some amusement... a bit like reading this song)

Great job here Guy. I reminds me of many a Christmas Eve attempting to assemble a wide array of unfamilar parts into a ...wait a minute...what was I trying to make anyway ?
Mikey Squirrel - April 01, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM- Reminds me of my parody 'Did not get the instructions'. I hate assembling or fixing things. Very well done, Guy.
