as a way of describing minimalist background music.

Lyrics:

I get so tired of my room
It makes the same sounds every day
Sometimes I move my things around
It helps eliminate the boredom

There is no order in my room
A place where accidents can happen
I like the table and my chair
Sometimes I listen to their pattern

Furniture music...
I make furniture music...
I like furniture music...
Ok...

I sit alone inside my room
It makes me feel as if I'm happy
Sometimes when I have time to kill
I watch the world outside my window

It never rains inside my room
My carpet is the colour green
There is a lock on every door
One never knows what things may happen

Furniture music...
I make furniture music...
I like furniture music...
Ok...

My room has the modern style of interior decoration
My room is a model of design
When I'm feeling happy I make furniture music
When I'm feeling sad I watch the rain...
When I'm feeling sad I watch the rain...

I like to read books in my room
It helps me in my quest for knowledge
Sometimes I think about my life
The source of all my inspiration

There is a clock upon the wall
I light a fire in the winter
It's light illuminates my room
And throws my shadow in the corner

Furniture music...
I make furniture music...
I like furniture music...
I am furniture...


Words and music by Bill Nelson.
