The sleeper hit on this album. It's just another solfege pun song, using more chromatic solfege to tell the story. But I'm pretty sure you don't need to understand any of the solfege puns to enjoy this little rocker.


Sophie lay on my sofa
Eating raw dough, and drinking tea
Sophie don't lay on my sofa so...
Don't tease me so!
Let yourself fall for me.
Eating raw dough is folly.
Tea's not so bad.
But Sophie, don't lay on my sofa
Eating dough.
