The Lyrics

Since "roll" in the original is sung with two syllables, I bent the pacing slightly to cover the four of el-e-va-tor.
Don't let me hear none of that

Elevator music
Any old floor refuse it
On either eardrum, will abuse it
Make you just want to snooze it
I'm hatin' that up and down music
Think it's flights of stairs for me
Think it's flights of stairs for me

I've got no kick against mellow crap
I really like it when I want to nap
But when I have to be up top at eight
All of that sleeping sort of makes me late
That's why I hate all that


I pressed the button for the seventh floor
And heard Led Zepplin in orchestral score
How sacrilegious was that sound
I thought I'd lose the lunch I just put down
That why I'm horkin' from that


I was trapped, the mechanism jammed
I thought I knew the trials of the damned
"Feelings" I heard as done by Kenny G.
My God has now forsaken poor old me
Please stop playin' that


They got me out I was a-moaning
"Please kill me now" I kept intoning
To get my head clear of that "Love is Blue"
I had to go and listen to the Who
I'm going mental from that

Lots of geat lines here! The worst part of elevator music is when you get a cloying version of some stupid song in your head and you can't get rid of it! It's happened to me and not even "We Won't Get Fooled Again" helped!

Being forced to listen to "Feelings" would make an appropriate Purgatory.

Feelings by Kenny G??? Now that is scary. And if that isn't bad enough, you will never get away from the latest groaner - My Little Girl by Tim McGraw. I betcha you will be hearing that at weddings for the next ten years.

Surely EM is a violation of the Geneva Conventions. Fine job, Rick.

I never realized until now that even though our elevators are pos, they do not have muzak. Funny work, Rick.

Did you know that elevator music is played at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo? If that doesn't make people vote Democratic on November 7, I don't know what will! I'm still waiting for an elevator-music version of Aerosmith's "Love In an Elevator." Wouldn't that be a neat little irony?
