Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road

Recommended Posts

Back in 1973, there was a lighthearted song called "Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road". Does anybody remember who wrote and recorded this song? It was one of those one hit wonders but it got a lot of laughs, I remember. =:P

Wainwright Loudon was the "artist" who gave us

"Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road" Enjoy!

Crossin' the highway late last night

He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right

He didn't see the station wagon car

The skunk got squashed and there you are!

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose!

Roll up yer window and hold yer nose

You don't have to look and you don't have to see

'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

Yeah you got yer dead cat and you got yer dead dog

On a moonlight night you got yer dead toad frog

Got yer dead rabbit and yer dead raccoon

The blood and the guts they're gonna make you swoon!

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

C'mon stink!

You got it!

It's dead, it's in the middle

Dead skunk in the middle!

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high heaven!

All over the road, technicolor man!

Oh, you got pollution

It's dead, it's in the middle

And it's stinkin' to high, high Heaven

Loudon Wainwright III never matched the hit he had with "Dead Skunk..." but he had many other wonderful songs. You may also recall that he had a recurring role for a year or two on the TV series, "MASH" as a kind of troubador who sang little ditties related to the show's plots in cut-ins.

He's a very clever fellow from whom I wish we'd heard more.

I'm not sure if he wrote it - but he sang the theme song of the show- "Suicide is Painless".

Isn't there another song out there about a dead skunk? It goes something like "Dead skunk in the middle of the road, roll up the windows and plug your nose." I remember my dad and I laughing hysterically when hearing that on the country station.
