Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts – Memphis Blues Again Lyrics

[Verse 1] Functionalism’s a bore
Modernism’s a chore
God how school makes me snore
Why do people adore
Steel tubes bent to a frame
All this shit looks the same
Like abuse is a shame
Yeah he’s mostly to blame
[?] [?] Critics said to much glare
Peter Shy didn’t care

Minimalism’s absurd
To me its just a word
I wished i’d never heard
Dont you know there’s a third
After function and form
Makes you feel nice and warm
Makes you question the norm
Keeps you safe from the swarm
Yes emotion makes three
It makes objects complete
Go ahead take a seat
[?] Why should it not have thoughts
Why should it not have lots
Will you tell me why not?
Are you artists or cops?

[Chorus] We’re stuck inside
This old automobile
We’re stuck inside
With the memphis blues again

[Verse 2] ? is my name
Furniture is my game
Thinking frees been my claim
Since 1917
Cemetery is the past
I prefer the contrast
Critics said that it clashed
Time will tell who outlasts
Picture this on your wall
Its not meant to appal
Yeah that chairs got a ball
Its about eight feet tall
No need to be a grouch
Have a seat on my couch
Makes it easy to slouch
With the arms pointing out

This lamp looks like a bird
Yeah its kind of absurd
No you haven’t misheard
This lamp looks like a bird
Dont confuse what i meant
No malicious intent
I’m just trying to invent
[?] On my typing machine
Discover valentine
Comes in blue, red and green
Thank you [?] king
Why should it not have stripes
There’s a few different types
Up and down side to side
Must it be made of pipes

[Chorus] We’re stuck inside
This old automobile
We’re stuck inside
With the memphis blues again
