The Lyrics

I wanted to make a parody of this for a while basically so I have an excuse to sing the original tune more often
Johnny was a nerd using DOS
Back in '85
Was down by the comp, all day, each day
Nina worried 'bout him a lot
Worried for her son, it seemed that he'd rot
Away, away

She said: you've got to go on, get back to earth
There are better things than this is
That you can use for mirth
I am your mother, and I gave birth
To you, do something of worth

You're always there
Whoa-oh, Livin' on a chair
Make some plans, just go playing somewhere
No more, Livin on a chair

Johnny's all grown up with a job
Got a wife and kids, they're his life
The P.C.'s not - hooray, hooray
Nina spends her time on eBay
When he calls her at night
Johhny tells her: please do what I say, ok

You've got to go on, get back to earth
There are better things than bidding
To buy things of no worth
I tell you, mother, there's nothing worse
Than that, just please take my word

You're always there
Whoa-oh, Livin' on a chair
Make some plans that will take you from there
No more, Livin on a chair

You got to try, I beg that of you
I beat the disease and you can do that too

You're always there
Whoa-oh, Livin on a chair
Make some plans that will take you from there
No more, Livin on a chair

Livin on a chair
