about

This song started life as a poem. A little tune and piano part started to form. Dorothea Baker expanded the piano part and she plays it here.

lyrics

My Room is full of broken chairs
from quartets, trios, even pairs -

that Georgian Duo, so mismatched,
one of which has been dispatched,

the Trio Dressed in Velvet Green
to save us all removed has been.

The Quartet of the Bulging Legs
has been reduced by wobbly pegs,

and only three can dine today.
Will all my chairs end up this way?

And all the chairs whose ends are near
have come into This Room, my Dear.

For in This Room one shall not sit,
just store things, dress and sleep a bit.

So do not be caught unawares,
in this, my Room of Broken Chairs….
