The Lyrics

Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Oh, Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Keep a' sawin' them legs, but they don't match up, mate

Bought a dinner table from my Uncle Will
He said it was good'n, but it leans downhill
It's got me so frustrated, that the grass I mowed
Thinkin' in my mind, ol' Will's a toad
He lightened my wallet, 'bout thirty five
For a crooked piece a' wood, that's no good jive,,

Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Oh, Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Keep a' sawin' off legs, but they won't match up, mate

Can't eat my dinner, ain't gettin' no fill
Plate keeps a' slidin' like a sled downhill
Broke thirteen jugs a' my fav'rite swill
Just a sittin' here a' cussin out that dang ol' Will
If I ketch that bum downtown..
Me and him gonna' go 'round and 'round..

Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Oh, Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Keep a' sawin' off legs, but it won't match up, mate

Tried placin' a book beneath one leg,
But "War and Peace" don't make a good peg
Tried usin' my foot, cuz' I had a hunch,
But when I stood up, Bowzer got my lunch
Gettin' back at Will, I know what I'll do
When I see him..I'll saw his leg off, too..

Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Oh, Table Lean, ain't standin' up straight
Keep a' sawin' off legs, but it won't match up, mate

Keep a' sawin' off legs, but it don't match up, mate

AFW, your comment about the book "War and Peace" as a shim for your table leg in this parody reminds me of my myriad uses for that same book. You see, I neglected to return a copy of that book from the library at my former high school, and nearly 10 years later, I still use it to put cups on, as a doorstop, and it is currently holding my circa-1965 gold velour couch up along with a Minneapolis/St. Paul phonebook from 2001 due to a missing leg. Great job, and 5s.

Would 555 mm suffice as the table leg length?
