Trivial Pursuit
© 1989, Jim Lesses. All Rights Reserved.

Johnny’s in the bathroom oiling up his hair.
Julie’s in the bedroom but she isn’t really there.
She sits before the mirror slowly putting on her face,
And when she gets up and moves away Johnny takes her place.
He sits there humming badly on the latest number one.
It only takes an hour and they’re ready to have fun.
They’re heading for the rave party, looking very cute, but,
Everybody knows it’s just a Trivial Pursuit.

Johnny is a yuppie he’s a man on the make,
Julie’s always pushing him she only wants to take, take.
Julie is a trend setter only wears the best,
You know that Johnny is a real man, hair upon his chest.
Julie’s wearing perfume that should spark his desire,
But the poor girl is smelling like a house on fire!
Johnny looks a winner in his ten piece suit, but,
Everybody knows it’s just a Trivial Pursuit.

Johnny sits behind the wheel feeling very strong,
Leaving rubber on the road they know that it is wrong.
Heading down the highway doing 90 miles an hour,
Julie laughs hysterically, Johnny loves the power.
Paying 80 bucks a week for too many, many years,
Playing with his life, trying to impress his peers.
Acting very cool, man, sitting on the boot, but,
Everybody knows it’s just a Trivial Pursuit.

Johnny’s got a laptop, hi-fi, tape deck,
Stereo TV and a compact disk,
She’s got an internet mobile, microwave, ThinkPad,
Little baby Rio that goes like this…
Nah nah nah nah nah, Nah nah nah nah nah,
Nah nah nah nah nah, nah, nah nah nah nah nah.
Nah nah nah nah nah, Nah nah nah nah nah,
Nah nah nah nah nah, nah, nah nah nah nyah nyah.

Johnny is a go-getter nose to the wheel,
Julie is a pay clerk, she doesn’t fit the bill.
Johnny’s on a roll, man, playing for his life,
While Julie’s hanging on to him, she wants to be his wife.
They think they have the answer as they feed their desires
Yes, everything is happening as long as they don’t tire.
Both of them are laughing ‘cause they think it’s a hoot, but,
Everybody knows it’s just a Trivial Pursuit.
