Lyrics

I once had a girl
Or should I say she once had me
She showed me her room
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?

She asked me to stay
And she told me sit anywhere
So I looked around
And I noticed there wasn't a chair

I sat on a rug
Biding my time, drinking her wine
We talked until two
And then she said, "It's time for bed"

She told me she worked in the morning
And then she started to laugh
I told her I didn't and I crawled off to sleep it off
In the bath

(Interlude)

She told me she worked in the morning
And then she started to laugh
I told her I didn't and I crawled off to sleep
In the bath

And when I awoke
I was alone, this bird had flown
So I lit a fire
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?

'Wegian wood
Norwegian wood
