about

On my Facebook page, I asked for song title ideas. One idea presented turned out to be the title of this song. Coincidentally, about that time, I heard a news reporter mention an airline shifting seats a little bit closer together on planes. Aha! That did it!

lyrics

Did you hear the news?
The airlines are feeling a pinch.
I've been told the crews
are taking away another inch.
What are they tryin' to do, I ask ya?
Some of us need the space.
They keep packin' in more 'n' more seats,
but I need room for my legs.

I need room for my legs! Oh, man!
You know, I need room for my legs!
Please stop pushin' those seats so close together;
I need room for my legs!

I just bought a new car;
it'll go all day on one tank.
But when I get behind the wheel,
I discover the chassis shrank
What are they tryin' to do, I ask ya?
Some of us need the space.
Sure, I get better MPG,
but I need room for my legs.

I need room for my legs! Oh, man!
You know, I need room for my legs!
Please don't make the cars any smaller,
cuz I need room for my legs!

I just went to a movie;
It's one I really wanted to see
They had moved the rows to fit more,
and there wasn't any room for my knees.
What are they tryin' to do, I ask ya?
Some of us need the space.
I don't like the knees pokin' in my back
and I need room for my legs.

I need room for my legs! Oh, man!
You know, I need room for my legs!
Please stop pushin' those rows together,
cuz I need room for my legs!
Please stop pushin' those rows together,
cuz I need room for my legs!

Vicki Morrison Goble Minnesota

It brings me joy to produce beautiful melodies with thoughtful lyrics focused on uplifting themes that speak to the peacemakers, lovers, and helpers in all of us. I use music as a positive influence in my life and in the lives of others and as a means to encourage myself and others to be active participants in life, rather than only observers. It is never too late to try something new! ... more
