Liner Notes: 

Written for the Week2 challenge, I don't expect this to go platinum, but might provide a brief smile.

Lyrics: 

A Comfortable Recliner

Ch
Few things in life are finer
Than a comfortable recliner
For working out your problems
With a glass of single malt
V1
I’ve tried it on the sofa
But that just didn’t work
I didn’t find contentment
And it was the seat at fault
Ch
Few things in life are finer
Than a comfortable recliner
For working out your problems
With a glass of single malt
V2
I used to like my wing chair
But then a coil spring broke
I was sitting on it at the time
Felt like sexual assault
Ch
Few things in life are finer
Than a comfortable recliner
For working out your problems
With a glass of single malt

Smile I'll be the first to say that this definitely put a smile on my face! V2 - very funny! I, too, love my recliner. And the only thing finer (for me) is if it would message me. Other than that, it's golden! Great write here, Salty!

This is great, and that assault line made me chuckle. I recently had a "designer" pick out some new furniture--which meant that my amazing leather recliner had to go. What a sad day. The new furniture LOOKS great, but...

i like the near rhymes on the verses. all in all, its funny because most of us have crappy chairs that kill our backs and bottoms as we write into the night.

Sexual assault, hah! That's great.

This is giving me that Zac Brown's Chicken Fried feeling. Could be a country song?

Change a simple thing in your life, and your life has changed in a major way, right? Biggrin

a nice comfortable recliner! In my mind this is a nice smooth jazzy number. Love your lyrics, very fun.
