The Lyrics

I'll light a match
You find the flashlight in the drawer
Oh it's stuck...
Oh f*ck!
Sitting in the dark
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Complain loudly
All night long
At the-e-e
Power comp-a-n-e-e

Come get the board (get the)
And we will play a game of checkers
Never been so bored
Need the TV (need the TV)
Wish I had a generator
So I could turn on computer
Surf the Web
And then
Download some por-or-orn

Make me very very very ticked off
I know I paid my bill
I've really had my fill
And now I'm getting hungry
I can't see
Oh gee

(Da da da da da dark, da da da dark
Da da da da da da dark
Da da da da da dark)

Fridge - I do not dare to open it up
Or all the food might spoil
How long we're in this coil
Is something not apparent
Now to me

I'll hold the match
And you place a Band-Aid on my shin
That I banged
Just now-ow-ow OW!

M & P - Loved the ending - so true to life. "I've done that man". I expected the fridge to play a part in this and I was not disappointed.

Where have you two been? You haven't done anything since June 15TH. Miss you guys out here.
