FZ: Once upon a time-uh,
Way back a long time ago
When the universe consisted of nothing more elaborate
than Mark Volman,

MV: "-Ohh, thank you, Frank.
And don't misspell that, that's not
Marc Bolan,
that's Mark Volman. Hiya, friends!
From: Charles Ulrich &
  Bolan. Mark Bolan was the singer/guitarist of T. Rex. Mark Volman (and Howard Kaylan, of course) sang back-up on many T. Rex songs, including the hit "Bang a Gong (Get It On)". (That's why it sounded so authentic when Flo & Eddie did an excerpt from this song on one of their albums.)

Does that help?
(FZ- Not Much) (No, I don't know who you are.)
OK, I got one. Clue number two: I am
  I betcha that's "double knit," which was the technique used to weave the stretchable polyester fabrics that comprised leisure suits in the '70s, which was the subject under discussion in "Eddie Are You Kidding?" and, presumably, this song as well.

And there he was, ladies and gentlemen,
the Good Lord, and he took a..., he took a
look at the sofa, and he said to himself,
"Quite an attractive sofa.
This sofa could be commercial",
(Thank you, Frank, hiya friends)
"with a few more

  This is some kind of cocktail. Here is the recepie right from the Eddie Tirado's "Coctail And Mixed Drinks", p.55
  Tequila has achieved success as a result of the popularity of this classic cocktail. Tha name, Margarita, has been traced back to a famous Mexican dancer, whose dark flashing eyes and tapping heels stimulate the exictement of this drink:
  • salt
  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
  • 1 oz of fresh lemon or the lime juice
  • slice of lemon
  Rim the glass with salt by first moistening the rim with slice of lemon and sprinkle salt over the moistened area.
  Vigorously shake Tequila, Triple Sec or Cointreau, and lemon pr lime juice.
  Strain into coctail glass.
  Garnish with slice of lemon and serve.

"What this sofa needs" said the
Big 'G'

  [...] really should be "The Big 'G'", you know, as in God.

and of course ladies and gentlemen that means:
"give unto me a bit of flooring under this
fat floating sofa"
and sure enough boards of oak appeared throughout the emptiness
as far as vision permits,
stretching all the way from Belfast to Bogner Regis
and the Lord put aside his huge cigar
and proceeded to deliver unto the charming maroonish sofa
the bulk of his message
with the assistance of a small electric clarinet
and it went something like this...
