The Lyrics

the repo send the truck in this mean old town,
took my sofa away from me
now I'm watchin t.v and I can't lay down
the sofa's away from me

sofa away from me,
my payment?? I just missed three
my sofa's away from me
my sofa away from me

I'm tired of wakin up and bein' on the floor
with the sofa away from me
my poor old back just can't take it no mo'
with the sofa away from me

sofa away from me,
my payment?? I just missed three
my sofa's away from me
my sofa away from me

I get so tired, when I have to explain,
with the sofa away from me
no foolin around with my woman again
with the sofa away from me

sofa away from me,
my payment?? I just missed three
my sofa's away from me
my sofa away from me

I actually did think of this title, but never found the angle. Very good.
