ala Beach Boys

Wouldn't it be nice if light were shorter?
Then it wouldn't have to go so far.
And wouldn't it be nice if we could hover!
Then we wouldn't have to drive a car.
You know its gonna make it that much better
When we're eating hot chestnuts together!

Wouldn't it be nice if clothes could tell us
When somebody's going to go insane?
And after having spanned the world with metal
Hold it up with giant window panes.
The happy times together we've been spending!
Why isn't toilet paper never ending?
Wouldn't it be nice?

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray... it might come true!
Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do...
If only we could be glowing and then our guts would be showing,
Wouldn't it be nice?

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But let's talk about it...
Wouldn't it be nice?
(La, la, la, laa, la...)

       If I understood a crazy man's poetry (and I think most of you thought you did,) I would give you a bun. Instead, you get a neutral from me.

       [croissantz], this a spoof of the Beach Boys song "Wouldn't it be nice." If that doesn't shake any recognition loose... I don't know what can be done.

       You know, some people from outside the US know of the beach boys. It's true!
harderthanjesus, Aug 24 2004
  

       Yeah, over in Europe we know about things, even if they happen outside our own continent! (runs and hides as GW Bush notices another non-US country and decides to bomb it)   

       (no, really runs and hides this time)

       Damnit, you don't have to convince me. I live in the most uninformed "superpower" on the planet. "If it didn't happen in Las Vegas, we don't want to hear about it!"
k_sra, Nov 04 2004
  

       Why, what happened in Vegas?
calum, Nov 04 2004
  

       I have no idea. The only news I get is through watching CSI: Las Vegas.
