laugh out loud


Recommended Posts

in this thread, discuss parts in songs where you literally laughed out loud the first time you heard them.

A few great lyrics from brit-rockers Art Brut from their album "Bang Bang Rock n Roll," with a lead singer who mostly shouts.

"We want to the band that writes the song

that makes Israel and Palestine get along"

"And yes, this is my singing voice.

It's not rock n roll, it's not irony,

we're just talking...the the kids!"

"so, we entered the cinema,

went home from the cinema

up the stairs, through the door

on to the bedroom floor,

I've seen her naked...twice!

I've seen her naked...TWWWWICE!"

That song London Underground when I first heard it I had just get home from a seven hour train (attempted) ride, which involed waiting for trains that had been delayed by at least one hour and a bit and for trains that just dissappered..I thought it suited the train service at the time!!

and Monty Pyphons "Always look on the bright side of life" at the end where it goes "worse things happen at sea" and "you came from nothing your going back to nothing what you lost? Nothing!" but all of it's funny really..sorry, this is a mini rant!!

Da Vinci's Notebook:

"Whenever life gets you down,

keeps you wearing a frown,

and the gravy train has left you behind...

and when you're all out of hope,

down at the end of your rope,

and nobody's there to throw you a line...

If you ever get so low

that you don't know which way to go

come on and take a walk in my shoes...

Never worry 'bout a thing

got the world on a string

Cause I've got the cure for all of my blues...

I take a look at my enormous penis

and my troubles start melting away."

From their song "Internet Porn":

"Bikers wearing diapers chasing nurses dressed like smurfs...

Geriatric German grandmas spanking Spanish men."

NOT FOR THE EASILY OFFENDED

"In My Country There Is Problem"- From Borat

In my country there is problem,

And that problem is transport.

It take very very long,

Because Kazakhstan is big.

Throw transport down the well (repeat line)

So my country can be free (repeat line)

We must make travel easy (repeat line)

Then we'll have a big party (repeat line)

In my country there is problem

And that problem is the Jew

They take everybody money

And they never give it back

Throw the Jew down the well (repeat line)

So my country can be free (repeat line)

You must grab him by his horns (repeat line)

Then we have a big party (repeat line)

If you see the Jew coming

You must be careful of his teeth

You must grab him by his money

And I tell you what to do

similar lyrics in "Kiss Off" by the Violent Femmes

I take one, one, one cause you left me and

two, two, two for my family and

three, three, three for my heartache and

four, four, four for my headaches and

five, five, five for my lonely and

six, six, six for my sorrow and

seven, seven, n-no tomorrow and

eight, eight, I forget what eight was for, and...

lots of Roger's songs make me laugh out loud. But the very first of his songs that caused that was "Broken Record," in a couple of places, actually.

I fed your dog while you were on vacation

covered all your shifts for your operation

but when you got back, you still wouldn't show me

your brand new silicone boobs.

and

So you took another guy on that Caribbean cruise

while I stayed home and cried into my bottle of pills

but when you got back, you had the nerve to ask me if I had gone through some of your clothes - yeah, right!

and

no I'm not a quarterback, I'm not a fireman

still I can have any girl in Japan

cause I'm a healthy 159-pound American boy

"Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian"

John Prine

Well,I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket

For the land of the tall palm tree

Aloha old Milwaukee, hello Waikiki!

I just stepped down from the airplane

When I heard her say,

Waka waka nuka licka, waka waka nuka licka

Would you like a lei? eh?

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Whisper in my ear

Kicka pooka mok a wa wahini

Are the words I long to hear

Lay your coconut on my tiki

What the hecka mooka mooka dear

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Say the words I long to hear

Its a ukelele Honolulu sunset

Listen to the grass skirts sway

Drinking rum from a pineapple

Out on Honolulu bay

The steel guitars all playing

While shes talking with her hands

Gimme gimme oka doka make a wish and wanta polka

Words I understand hey!

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Whisper in my ear

Kicka pooka mok a wa wahini

Are the words I long to hear

Lay your coconut on my tiki

What the hecka mooka mooka dear

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Say the words I long to hear

Well, I boughta lota junka with my moola

And sent it to the folks back home

I never had the chance to dance the hula

Well,i guess I should have known

When you start talking to the sweet wahini

Walking in the pale moonlight

Ohka noka whatta setta knocka-rocka-sis-boom-boccas

Hope I said it right oh!

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Whisper in my ear

Kicka pooka mok a wa wahini

Are the words I long to hear

Lay your coconut on my tiki

What the hecka mooka mooka dear

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Say the words I long to hear

Lets talk dirty in Hawaiian

Say the words I long to hear

aloha
