Funniest songs


Recommended Posts

Arlo Guthrie's Motorcycle and Alice's Restaurant are great, they crack me up. If you have never heard them you should.

Yes yes! Those are hilarious!

"Barbara Anne" by The Beach Boys is funny because they all mess up and get tongue tied at the end :P

"Boris The Spider" The Who

"Horse With No Name" America-- I doubt it was meant to be funny, but the lyrics where they say "... cause there ain't no one for to give you no name..." just absolutely crack me up.

I'll agree with the Arlo Guthrie and raise you "Rock Lobster" by the B-52s ("Here comes the dogfish - woof, woof).

I'm not much of an Offspring fan, but "Pretty Fly For A White Guy" is inspired. I like when he tries to buy Ice Cube but gets Vanilla Ice.

I can't believe that nobody has mentioned They Might Be Giants :doh:

They're extremely funny. I'll add anything by Frank Zappa and The Butthole Surfers. And I can't help but laugh when I hear Hall & Oates :laughing:

Has anyone heard the song 88 Lines About 44 Women? I listened to it for the first time yesterday and it made me laugh.

You're right Batman - The Streets are really hysterical - I posted them on the get the word out forum several months ago - and the videos I've seen from them are great. Here's a John Prine song that always makes me laugh - it's one of our sing along in the car songs-

Dear Abby

From: Great Days: The John Prine Anthology

Dear Abby, Dear Abby ...

My feet are too long

My hair's falling out and my rights are all wrong

My friends they all tell me that I've no friends at all

Won't you write me a letter, Won't you give me a call

Signed Bewildered

Bewildered, Bewildered...


You have no complaint

You are what your are and you ain't what you ain't

So listen up Buster, and listen up good

Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood

Dear Abby, Dear Abby...

My fountain pen leaks

My wife hollers at me and my kids are all freaks

Every side I get up on is the wrong side of bed

If it weren't so expensive I'd wish I were dead

Signed Unhappy

Unhappy, Unhappy...

Repeat Chorus

Dear Abby, Dear Abby...

You won't believe this

But my stomach makes noises whenever I kiss

My girlfriend tells me It's all in my head

But my stomach tells me to write you instead

Signed Noise-maker

Noise-maker, Noise-maker

Repeat Chorus

Dear Abby, Dear Abby...

Well I never thought

That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught

We were sitting in the back seat just shooting the breeze

With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees

Signed Just Married

Just Married, Just Married...

Repeat Chorus

Album Lyrics: Great Days: The John Prine Anthology [1993]
