Any self-respecting IKEA Fan has heard (and giggled along to) Jonathan Coulton’s ‘Ikea’ Song, but anymore that’s just one of a number of amusing IKEA diddies. Recently, there have been a couple of new funny IKEA songs on the scene – watch IKEA videos, read IKEA song lyrics and giggle yourself silly to some of the best IKEA songs and parodies after the jump!

IKEA Songs

Why does IKEA inspire artists, musicians and comedians to make up funny songs in tribute to the Swedish furniture behemoth? Who cares?! Here are three funny IKEA songs to tickle your funny bone on this dreary, rainy Monday…

IKEA by Jonathan Coulton

The quintessential IKEA Song, ‘IKEA’ by Jonathan Coulton is a crowd-pleaser at live concerts. One of these days, maybe I’ll get to see him live myself! In the meantime, I keep up with what JoCo is doing by following him on Twitter: Jonathan Coulton on Twitter.

Lyrics to IKEA by Jonathan Coulton

Long ago in days of yore 
It all began with a god named Thor 
There were Vikings and boats 
And some plans for a furniture store 
It’s not a bodega, it’s not a mall 
And they sell things for apartments smaller than mine 
As if there were apartments smaller than mine

Ikea: just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen 
Ikea: selling furniture for college kids and divorced men 
Everyone has a home 
But if you don’t have a home you can buy one there

So rent a car or take the bus 
Lay your cash down and put your trust 
In the land where the furniture folds to a much smaller size 
Billy the bookcase says hello 
And so does a table whose name is Ingo 
And the chair is a ladder-back birch but his friends call him Karl

Ikea: just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen 
Ikea: selling furniture for college kids and divorced men 
Everyone has a home 
But if you don’t have a home you can buy one there

Ikea: plywood, brushed steel 
Ikea: meatballs, tasty 
Ikea: Allen wrenches 
All of them for free 
All of them for me

I’m sorry I said Ikea sucks 
I just bought a table for 60 bucks 
And a chair and a lamp 
And a shelf and some candles for you 
I was a doubter just like you 
Till I saw the American dream come true 
In New Jersey, they got a goddamned Swedish parade

Ikea: just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen 
Ikea: selling furniture for college kids and divorced men 
Everyone has a home 
But if you don’t have a home you can buy one there

Riegel and Blatt – The IKEA Song

NSFW Warning: Not Safe for Work + irritating advertisement that rolls before the video.

IKEA Song

With nearly 230,000 views since its launch in January, Los Angeles-based comedians Riegel and Blatt’s The IKEA Song purports to tell the single man how ‘man up’ with IKEA furniture. Follow Riegel and Blatt on Twitter here: Riegel and Blatt on Twitter.

Stuck in a Furniture Store by Dave Days (Parody of Owl City’s Fireflies)

Dave Days put together an amusing parody of Owl City’s Fireflies with IKEA as the subject. Read the lyrics and watch the video below. Buy the song on iTunes here: Stuck in a Furniture Store by Dave Days. Follow Dave Days on Twitter here: Dave Days on Twitter.

Lyrics to Stuck in a Furniture Store by Dave Days

You would not believe your eyes If ten million home supplies Appeared and taught me how to live I test out every bed Look! I’m on a movie set You’d think me straight I just can’t help but frolic I like to make myself believe That I could die here happy Everything I’d ever need is right in front of me I think there’s something wrong with this TV Nap time.. I take a thousand steps When do these arrows end Either Deja Vu or I’ve been here before These employees are jerks And there arrows don’t freaking work Because if they did I wouldn’t be asking you How to get out of here!! I like to make myself believe These magic arrows help me With every step I’m lost again My legs can’t walk no more I don’t think they have an exit door How is this a lamp?!? I find it kind of hard to believe That there’s a food court right next to me If i never left how did I get here I think I saw this in the Twilight Zone once Nobody inside made it out! What are you looking at?! My points of latitude and longitude are 30 north 100 west I’ll be on the couch that’s on your left I like to make myself believe That somebody will save me
