About the song
This is a wholly 2012 song! In very early January, the track
began as a pure rhythm that I came up with (the scratch
overdub that you hear). By January 10, I had written and
developed a melody and lyrics to go with it. And then I
refined it from there.
Lyrics
Three-Legged Chair
Music and lyrics by Paul Iorio

Three legged chair, it's gonna hit the ground
Till it gets fixed, it'll keep fallin' down
(fix the)
Three legged chair
(fix the)
Three legged chair

Told my girlfriend to sit anywhere
She sat down, now needs emergency care

That three legged chair
One leg wasn't there

Neighborhood bank, on a steep grade
Post fell down in its collonade

It's gonna hit the ground
(Til it's fixed) It'll keep fallin' down

Government building near the train station
Missing some bricks on a weak foundation

It's gonna hit the ground
It'll keep fallin' down

Walked to one of the demonstrations
Breaking out across this broken nation
Gotta fix the chair
The three legged chair
The three legged chair

Three legged chair, it's gonna hit the ground
Till it gets fixed, it'll keep fallin' down
(fix the)
Three legged chair
(fix the)
Three legged chair
Three legged chair
Three legged chair
