Favorite Novelty Song

Recommended Posts

it's hilarious! here are the lyrics, just sing them in your head with the music of psychokiller

I can't seem to face up to the facts

I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax

This Colonel Sanders job is gettin' me down

A crazy chicken chasing me all over town

CHORUS:

Psycho Chicken--what the f*ck?

Bwak bwak bwak bwaaak bwak bwak bwak bwak bwaaak bwak

Better run run run run run run run away

I don't know just what to do

He's got a grudge against Frank Perdue

He's clucking a lot, but he's not saying anything

I plucked him once--why pluck him again?--CHORUS

Colonel Sanders wants to cook his goose

but Psycho Chicken's still on the loose

("Hmm, a little chickie--" BWAAK!! "OHH!!")

They caught him down in Ohio

They cut off his head and they put him in the oven

They put him in a box right next to a roll

Put some coleslaw around his legs and someone took him home

Ate him for lunch and he tasted real fine ("BURP!")

but the guy who ate him, he just lost his mind!

HALF-CHORUS (with "Qu'est-ce que?")

CHORUS (with "What the f*ck?")

("Ooh, it's all covered in feathers!")

My favorite Python song is "I Like Chinese" as well as the Money Song, Always Look On the Bright Side of Life, and I'm So Worried

:thumbsup: couldn't agree more

here's another MP classic:

The Song of the Knights of Camelot from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

Launcelot: Look, my liege!

(fanfare)

Launcelot: Camelot!

Robin: Camelot!

Galahad: Camelot!

Patsy: (whispered) It's only a model.

Galahad: Shh!

Arthur: Knights, I bid you welcome to your new home. Let us ride...to

CAMELOT!

song:

We're knights of the round table, we dance whene're we're able.

We do routines, and border scenes, with footwork imp-e-cable;

We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and spamalot.

We're knights of the round table, our shows are for-mid-able

Though many times, we're given rhymes, that are quite un-sing-able

We're not so bad in Camelot, we sing from the Dia-phragm alot!

Though we're tough and able,

Quite in-de-fa-ti-gable,

Between our quests, we seek incest and impersonate Clark Gable,

It's a busy life in Camelot:

I have to push the pram-a-lot!

Arthur: On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

Others: Right, right....

Stairway To Gilligan's Island - Little Roger and The Goosebumps.

Guitarzan is another great one by Ray Stevens.

And all sorts of stuff from Martin Mull, but his albums are hard to find nowadays.

That is a good one, Laurie. :thumbsup:

I don't remember the "skeeter" one.

I love that song! I say "bleep-ing rag for a gas cap" all the time. Sandler used to be hilarious. :rockon:

Yeah, it's a shame his comedies started to suck. And then he went through his "The guy who was Operaman is now in serious melodramas" phase.

A novelty song is a song that uses unusual lyrics, subjects, or instrumentation.

They are songs that are usually of a humorous nature, such as a parody, or a comedic take on current events or fads.

The "Doctor Demento" series CDs are a good collection of Novelty Songs. :thumbsup:
