it’s one of those posts that needs to be sung.

lyrics (@syrena-of-the-lake ’s lyrics plus a few verses of my own to fill in the blanks):

It’s nine o’clock on a work night
And to my so-familiar chagrin
There’s a crack-of-dawn shift I’ve been scheduled for
So I guess it’s ‘bout time to turn in

But the foam in my mattress ain’t memory
There’s an issue that blocks my repose
‘Cause it’s real hard to sleep when you can’t hear a peep
Over ballads your bed done composed

La, la-la, di-di-da
La-la di-di-da da-dum

Sing us a song, you’re the pianobed
Both a bed and piano upright
Now you’re trapped in this mattress and melody
While Tumblr all laughs at your plight

Now Mozart and Bach, they are friends of mine
And Brahms with his sweet lullaby
But when my bed folds up tight in the dead of the night
I can’t sleep however I try

I say “Wolfgang, Johannes and Johann,
I respect all your great symphonies
But I can’t get much sleep with concertos
Being played on my head and my knees”

Oh, la, la-la, di-di-da
La-la di-di-da da-dum

The doctor says I need eight hours of sleep
This is takin’ those years off my life
And my spine needs a potion from the open-close motions
That’re treating it like a jackknife

And the torture, it’s got an accomp’niment
Not enough that it’s breaking my bones
While I’m mashed in the covers, it’s playing a cover
This bed likes the works of Tom Jones

[A familiar ditty is sung over the solo.]

Sing us a song, you’re the pianobed
Both a bed and piano upright
Now you’re trapped in this mattress and melody
While Tumblr all laughs at your plight

They let me sleep in on a Saturday
At least every once in a while
And when it gets out of tune, I can sleep until noon
A slumbering musicophile

Then the piano snaps shut, a crescendo
And the chords all resound in my ear
And it’s goodbye bedtime, and hello three-four time
And move over, Beethoven is here.

Oh, la, la-la, di-di-da
La-la di-di-da da-dum

Play us a song, you’re the pianobed
I’ll be stuck in your mattress all night
So I may as well sing to your melody
While Tumblr all laughs at my plight

#it got better #anything that makes me laugh this much deserves a reblog #music #(me: my dude have you considered getting a different bed) #(also me: you know you’re literally listening to this while #procrastinating on taking the plunge on buying a mattress that isn’t just a pile of springs) #(me: …) #((update: I have now purchased the mattress)) #((god I hope six inches of latex foam is enough; my loft bed can’t support more weight than that)) #((I guess if it isn’t I can always go back to the status quo until my brother moves out and #I have enough space for a bed without going three-dimensional)) #((and add more latex foam then)
