I'm on the hunt for a funny song/s to enter in a competition where the theme is "2001 - A FOLK ODDITY"

All suggestions greatfully recieved. It will be a mostly adult audience - so any adult humour should be good enough to go over the heads of any kids present!!!

Peggy Seeger sang on in the sixties.I'm not sure if she wrote it or not but I think it was called the Space Girls Lament or Space Girls Song.
First lines were

My mother told me I should never venture into space
But I did, I did, I did
She said no terran girl should trust the Martain race
But I did, I Did, I did
A rocket pilot asked me on a voyage to go
I was so excited I just could,nt say no
Well that he was a servo robot how was I to know
So I did, I did, I did.

You might get some ideas by perusing the joint fiction theme of the incredible tales of The Mudcat Enterprise, singing the songs of man where none have sung before. It is is in several linked parts, the first of which can be found over here..

Oh, and Pete Seeger's "My True Love -- the Venusian Love Song" is always good for a chuckle, not to mention "Hey Mister Spaceman" by the Fugs.

Someone sent this to me ages ago, i don't know who wrote it, but I presume it ia a parody of "Ramblin Rover"

Oh there's astronauts -a-plenty and launches barely 20
They'll wait out the 1990's and may never get off the ground
But give me a Martian rover. Just send a hundred over
And with Option Shift and Clover I will tele explore around

Oh there's eager anticipation of weightless copulation
It's become a pre-occupation for which many a pair rehearse
Just call me a doubting Thomas Hold on to your pajamas
'Cause a trip to the Bahamas would be easier on the purse

Oh there's many who planned on swimmin' with naked Martian women
In canals they believed were brimmin' for their steamy romantic spree
They must feel a mite embarrassed: we found no Martian heiress
But there's Valles Marineris; that's romantic enough for me
I have roamed throughout the planets You wonder how I can?
It's that wherever the robots land it's just a matter of tuning in
You may think a spacesuit better but I feel so much wetter
With a sea of molten lead or liquid methane against me skin

Eight Foot Two, Solid Blue
Words: Allan Sherman
Tune: Has Anybody Seen My Gal?

Last night I met a man from Mars, and he was very sad.
He said, "Won't you help me find my girl friend, please?"
So I asked him, "What does she look like?",
And the man from Mars said, she's...

Eight foot two, solid blue,
Five transistors in each shoe,
Has anybody seen my gal?
Lucite nose, rust-proof toes,
And when her antenna glows,
She's the cutest Martian gal.

You know she promised me, recently,
She wouldn't stray,
But came the dawn, she was gone
Eighteen billion miles away.

Her steering wheel has sex appeal,
Her evening gown is stainless steel,
Has anybody seen my gal?
How I miss all the bliss
Of her sweet hydraulic kiss,
Has anybody seen my gal?
Lovely shape, custom built,
Squeeze her wrong and she says "tilt",
Has anybody seen my gal?

She does the cutest tricks, with her six stereo ears.
When she walks by, spacemen cry,
'Specially when she shifts her gears.

If she's found, rush like mad,
Put her on a launching pad,
Down at Cape Canaveral,
And shoot me back my cutie,
My supersonic beauty,
Send me back my Martian gal.

Date: 26 Mar 01 - 01:21 PM

And speaking about sci-fi oldies, let's not forget "Come Take a Trip on My Airship" which I can still hear on quiet nights as sung by Sally Rogers and the Elderly Instruments gang:

COME TAKE A TRIP ON MY AIR SHIP
(George Evans and Ren Shields, Public Domain)

I once loved a sailor, once a sailor loved me;
He was not a sailor who sailed on the rolling sea;
He sailed in an airship, free as a bird on the wing,
And every Sunday evening, he'd fly past my window and sing:

Chorus:

Come take a trip on my airship,
Come let us sail to the stars;
Come let us fly off to Venus,
Come take a trip around Mars;
No one will see when we're kissing,
No one will know when we spoon;
Come take a trip in my airship
And we'll visit the man in the moon.

One night while sailing away from the crowds
We passed through the Milky White Way;
Whiule idly drifting and watching the clouds,
He asked me if I'd name the day;
Just by the dipper I gave him my heart;
The sun shines on our honeymoon;
We swore to each other we never would part
And we'll teach all the babies this tune. (CHO)

I was beaten to the Bonzo's above! However, for a comic song why not look at the stuff by Christine Lavin. The following are a few titles (and comments) from her web page.

"If We Had No Moon" (a studio version of this will be released later this year on an album produced by the National Space Society).

I Want To Be The First Folk Singer On The Space Shuttle

"Planet X" was inspired by an article I read about the plight of Pluto - is it or is it not a planet? The album begins by looking at the moon, ends gazing up at the whole big sky, and in between looks at life on this planet as experienced in the late 1990s.

Back in 1946 The Ray Bradburry story "The Green Hills of Earth" Was done as a Radio Program and Oscar Brand sang a song or wrote the song for the show to the tune of Acres of clams I only remember the last line of the chorus as "I pray for one last landing on the Green hills of earth" Actually the words were in the story as a poem and Oscar just put them to the music. You could probably find the story in an anthology of Bradburrys works

OKay - I'm being obscure but there's a recording of Spock singing. One side is ordinary songs and the other has Bilbo Baggins and a song with the line "There goes the neighborhood" referring to humans wandering off earth. Haven't listened to it for years, I'll try to find the record.

Also there's a lot of small filk publishers - how about the one with the crippled spaceliner - rescued by crew of Our Favorite starship - who end up wiht "A jet, it's quite simple, you can build one right here - just ... and one tank of beer.

We drank up the fuel and were feeling no pain, when the Navy man left with a look of disdain."

Anyway, despite my faulty memory, there are a couple dozen on that record alone. Solar Sailor was the record title, I think was done by Mord in Milwaukee around the 70's for science fiction convention.

Good lord, if you want filk, I've got dozens, including all the 70's Tolkein set to music (steal tunes from only the best).

Funny ones - well, maybe I eat little fire lizards - Look for Leslie Fish on Google and see what you get or check out Mercedes Lackey because I know there's an associated music site.

I have to go home now and look up all the real names of all these for ya! (Was held hostage to my folks VCR to tape "Survivors" - they just got back from the Marquesas and were'nt allowed on that island cause they were taping - wanted to see what they missed. Elaine

Subject: Lyr Add: MOONSHOT (Buffy Sainte-Marie)
From: Little Hawk
Date: 28 Feb 02 - 10:30 PM

Buffy Sainte-Marie did one called "Moonshot", but it's not a humorous song. It's a lament, a spiritual and philosophical piece, and a prayer for change. It refers to the moon missions, in the light of our general situation here on Earth, and was written in the early 70's sometime.

MOONSHOT

Up into outer space you go, my friends
We wish you bon voyage
And when you get there we will welcome you
And still you'll wonder at it all

See all the wonders that you leave behind
The wonders humble people own
I know a boy from a tribe so primitive
He can call me up without no telephone

See all the wonders that you leave behind
Enshrined in some great hourglass
The noble tongues, the noble languages
Entombed in some great English class

Up into outer space you go, my friends
We wish you bon voyage
And when you get there we will welcome you again
And still you wonder at it all

(musical break)

An anthropologist, he wrote a book
He called it "Myths of Heaven"
He's disappeared, his wife is all distraught
An Angel came and got him

His hair was gold, his wings were Love, his words were true
His eyes were lapis lazuli
He spoke in a language oh so primitive
But he made sense to me

Up into outer space you go, my friends
We wish you bon voyage
And when you get there we will welcome you again and again and again
And again you'll wonder at it all

(Buffy Sainte-Marie)

It's on the album "Moonshot" and is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

Gosh, I just stepped out for launch and look at all these subspace transmissions. There was a great album by Jefferson Airplane as they morphed into J Starship,titled "Blows Against The Empire"...it might have been released as some individual artist's names rather than the group's name, like frinstance Jorma Kaukonen/Grace Slick ? Anyway, it's home dock for "have you seen the stars tonight (song title + first line) ..would you like to go up on "A" deck and look at them with me -- Do you know, we could go, we are free.." Grace's typical soaring voice, maybe not always technically harmonious but certainly complementary! "Hijack" on the same album is an extended ramble about hijacking the starship and probably not suitable for children due to drug references. Same album, non-spatial, but suitable for mudcatter's interest is "Harp Tree Lament" , maybe this is actually a traditional song?? I don't know but it is performed that way.

Totally different: Weird Al Yankovich sings a hilarious (the first few times) song about Star Wars ep IV story, to tune of Don Maclean's "American Pie", I think album name is "Running with Scissors"

My, My this here Anniken guy Could be Vader maybe later , now he's just a small fry He left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye Saying "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi... soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Besides being humorous the song is an accurate synopsis of the tale....

Live long and prosper. And, "Just because they smile and eat chicken doesn't mean they've mastered their emotions."
