Norwegian Wood

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I
Once hit the post
Or should I say,
It once hit me.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It
Felt very hard
And it drew blood
Norwegian wood.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They asked me to count all the fingers they held to my face
I thought “three hundred” but add ten more just in case.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And
When I awoke
I was in bed
Pain in my head.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I
Asked could I ski
Like any good
Norwegian would.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 They asked me if they could do something to ease my great pain.
I told them to take that great splinter of wood from my brain.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So
It was removed,
Mounted with glee
Given to me.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Then
I lit a fire,
Wasn’t it good,
Norwegian wood?
