Is the expression "get above your sofas" equivalent to "get off your sofas" or have they got different meanings? PS: I was sitting on my sofa when I heard that...

I think you may have misheard the phrase, "Get up off your sofas," which is relatively common.

I have never heard, and couldn't find, "Get above your sofas."
