Seriously, How is This a Real Song?

[Update: According to my sources, the following appears to be a real song by Sly & the Family Stone.]

I am at Starbucks, waiting for H to finish his jiu jitsu class and getting some work done. A song is playing in the background. I would describe the music as 70s jazz. Some of the lyrics are:

We can do it on the floor
We can do it on the stairs
We can do it on the couch
We can do it in the air

If we do it every day
We can do it every way

The next line was:

We can do it on the grass

If the rhyming line was "We can do it in the ass," I was either going to leave or buy the c.d. I'm not sure which. Luckily/unfortunately, I did not have to make this decision.

I'm sure that by "do it" the singer meant "reading a good book." And how that is done in the ass, I just don't want to know.

Ohhh... I just snorted out my coffee, because without even reading your last line of typing (ass) I had thought the same thing.

LOL @ Noelle!

Love that obscure Starbucks muzak.

What does it say about me that I just googled the lyrics in an attempt to find out who sang this?

L Sass said...

I think your lyrics are brilliant! Perhaps fodder for the first ever AYKWE YouTube video contest?

So what WAS the rhyming line? "Do it with some class?" ;)

Paisley said...

Reminds me of Eddie Murphy's classic -

My girl wants to
party all the time
party all the time
party all the tiiimmmme

My girl wants to
party all the time
party all the time

do you know who it is?
I can just imagine other people sitting there... stopping everything they're doing, just to hear what the next line is.

That is hilarious.

i'm fully expecting to see a rap re-make of this now, complete with your re-write.

"We can do it till we get gas"?
