Notes:
1. This TAB is a simple transcription of the basic chords and does not pretend to 
represent the harmonic complexity that Frank Zappa's MOI band introduced into each 
verse.
2. The album features the final version of 'The Mothers of Invention', with George 
Duke, Chester Thompson, Ruth Underwood, Tom Fowler and Napoleon Murphy Brock.

'Sofa No. 2' - Translated
from KANSAS MEDIOCRITY.

"I am the heaven
I am the water

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen (I am the dirt beneath your rollers)
(Oh no, whip it on me, honey!)
Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz (I am your secret smut)
Und verlorenes Metallgeld (And lost metal money)
(Metallgeld)
Ich bin deine Ritze (I am your cracks)
Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze (I am your cracks & crannies)

I am the clouds
I am embroidered

Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen (I am the author of all tucks)
Und Damast Paspeln (And damask piping)
Ich bin der Chrome Dinette (I am The Chrome Dinette)
Ich bin der Chrome Dinette (I am The Chrome Dinette)
Ich bin Eier aller Arten (I am eggs of all persuasions)

Ich bin alle Tage und Nachte (I am all days and nights)
Ich bin alle Tage und Nachte (I am all days and nights)

Ich bin hier (I am here)
Und du bist mein Sofa (And you are my sofa)
Ich bin hier (I am here)
Und du bist mein Sofa (And you are my sofa)
Ich bin hier (I am here)
Und du bist mein Sofa (And you are my sofa)

Yeah, my Sofa
Yeah-ha-hey"
