I may have reached a new height/depth of silliness. In my defence, it's only 2 minutes long and there's a translation at the bottom.

 

 

COMFY TROOSERS
(Words & Music by Gavin Sinclair)

When you get up, nae point in gettin'
Intae fancy breeks unless yer goin' tae a weddin
Wear the ones ye went to bed in
Hooray for comfy troosers

Posh folks I ken, when ganging oot
Swap their jammies for a track suit
Such formal attire for me is oot
Those arnae comfy troosers

Comfy troosers, they're the best
Gie yer legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy troosers

I suppose that I could wear a kilt
The lassies would a' be thrilled
But I'm tae skinny, havnae the build
Like I do for comfy troosers

If ye want tae dae yer patriotic part in
Pyjamas, you can get them in tartan
So dae your staunin, sittin and fartin
In a pair of comfy troosers

Comfy troosers, they're the best
Gie yer legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy troosers

In zoos or boozers or in bus queues or
Even snoozin on church pews there's
a garment guaranteed to enthuse us...
Comfy troosers

For the superior posterior at any time of year
No better decoration for the gentleman's rear
Than the garment praised so highly here
Comfortable trousers

Comfy troosers, they're the best
Gie yer legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy troosers

 

 

COMFY TROUSERS

When you get up, no point in getting
Into fancy trousers unless you're going to a wedding
Wear the ones you went to bed in
Hooray for comfy trousers

Posh folks I know, when going out
Swap their pajamas for a track suit
Such formal attire for me is out
Those aren't comfy trousers

Comfy trousers, they're the best
Give your legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy trousers

I suppose that I could wear a kilt
The girls would all be thrilled
But I'm too skinny, haven't the build
Like I do for comfy trousers

If you want to do your patriotic part in
Pajamas, you can get them in tartan
So do your standing, sitting and farting
In a pair of comfy trousers

Comfy trousers, they're the best
Give your legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy trousers

In zoos or boozers or in bus queues or
Even snoozing on church pews there's
A garment guaranteed to enthuse us...
Comfy trousers

For the superior posterior at any time of year
No better decoration for the gentleman's rear
Than the garment praised so highly here
Comfortable trousers

Comfy trousers, they're the best
Give your legs and arse a rest
They'll thank you if you invest
In a pair of comfy trousers

Lol, Just Damn Gavin! I don't know how you do it... I tried to be silly and write one about my old sneakers, but, of course, they came from Walmart and the lyric quickly took a political turn... "No better decoration for the gentleman's rear". I never could have written this since I have the worst case of "flat ass" on the planet! I'm jealous, very jealous... 😉

LOL, Tony. You know, I'm not one of those people who can just churn out lyrics all day. I have to feel something first - like the pleasure of putting on comfy trousers. These last couple of years have been so shitty that small pleasures are felt more intensely and, frankly, pulling on those pajama trousers instead of jeans is about as good as it gets. I was thinking that while doing so one day, and before you knew it, this song, with all its profound insights into the human condition etc. pretty much wrote itself. The weird thing is that, wherever I've posted it, people seem to be lapping it up. All the songs I've poured my heart into about love, heartbreak, politics, the state of the world, and the one people notice is about comfy troosers.

Yep', that's what I meant to say... The shear magnitude of your profound wisdom and insight is surely enough to encompass and cover the enormity of the entire world's rears! 🤣 

Seriously though, It did make me laugh... Thanks for that!

PS; The translation has no character at all. Stick with the original lol!

@japov Don't worry Tony, I have no intention of using the translation other than as a guide for people here who are unfamiliar with some of the words. It's a bit like those editions of plays by Shakespeare, with whom I think this work entitles me to claim artistic parity, which have notes in the margins explaining old English words to a modern reader. A Scottish audience has no need of them and even an English one has probably heard most of the words from their northern neighbors, but Americans not so much.

Troosers is just so much more fun to sing than trousers LOL.
