That's an in-joke to the 1970/1971 tour, when he changed the Sofa Suite's ONCE UPON A TIME from German to Dutch and the main word that got the audience going was vloerbedekking.

"Vloerbedekking" means 'carpet' or 'floor covering' in Dutch, the same as 'Fussbodenbelag' in the German version of 'Sofa'.<br><br>"Gib zu mir etwas Fussbodenbelag unter diesen fetten fliessenden Sofa"<br>= <br><br>"Geef mij wat vloerbedekking onder deze vette zwevende sofa"<br>=<br><br>"Give Me Some Floor Covering Under This Fat Floating Sofa"
