The Lyrics

Someone did a song about swedish women....I'm going to do a song about the most Swedish thing I'm exposed to....IKEA! Thanks for the inspiration there!
My chair, I got it at that Swedish store
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
I like it I'll by a dozen more
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
Some assembly, is required
but for this, I don't complain
and you know how that light is wired
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)

I chose Ikea
hey hey hey I chose Ikea, yeah
I love, that swedish thing

New double bed, next to the wall
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
any children? They'll play with balls
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
baby does black guys,
and they yearn so rightly for her
Those white cabinets I really love,
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)

I chose Ikea
hey hey hey I chose Ikea, yeah
I love, that swedish thing
oh oh yeah

perfect curtains for a boy or a girl
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
many stores, around the world..
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
Swedish word, means common sense
and this is, what I sorely lack
But for now I'll just buy their furniture
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
(oh -oh -oh that swedish thing)
