I heard Michael Johnson recently. He sang a parody of Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou" that went something like this:

I went out one autumn day,
The sky was dark, the clouds were gray;
A gust of wind caught my toupee
And it blew by you.

I'm going back out there to find my hair
That blew by you.
It's a black toupee with just a touch of gray
That blew by you.
I've got no peace of mind without that piece of mine;
My head looks like a baby's behind.
I wish I dug where to find that rug
That blew... by... you.

A personal favourite is On Again, On Again. Bernard Wrigley does a decent version of it, and introduces it as "Anybody who can write a song with the opening line "I love a good bum on a woman, it makes my day" gets my vote."

One of the funniest songs I have ever heard is 'Railroad Bill'. Written by an Andy Breckman.


Sample:

I said one day Bill was walking along
And he saw a kitten stuck in a tree
When he saw what was the matter he ran to get a ladder
To set that kitty cat free
Bill said no, ain't gonna do it
Ain't gonna do what you said
This is a stupid stupid song and as far as I'm concerned
That cat can stay there till it's dead


I said wait a minute Bill, you can't argue with me
For God's sake I just made you up
I got the pen in my hand, I want you up in that tree
I want that cat unstuck
Bill said no, I hate cats
Ain't gonna climb for no cat
He said why don't you have me save a beautiful girl
Who's been tied down to the railroad tracks?

Johnny Cash's "City Jail" has always tickled me:


City jail, city jail
Like an old scared dog, I tuck my tail
I hung my head and not a careless word was said
I gotta sleep on the floor once more at the city jail

Back when I first came to this town
I was mindin' my own business (like I always do)
When I saw this waitress in this bus station cafe
And I thought I check out the action (like I always do)
Well, I gave her the eye and made a few choice personal comments
About what I thought mine and her possibilities could be for a team
When she called the badge on me
The badge grabbed me by the arm and he said
What are you doin' hangin' around here for?
And I said for whatever's goin' around.

City jail city jail...

He said no what I mean is what are you doin'
Sayin' things like that to that lady?
And I said what's that lady's doin' with purple hair?
Well the badge said you're a smart aleck, ain't you son?
And I said no sir, I'm just hungry
And he said well you're actin' like a smart aleck
And I said well that's how I act when I get hungry

City jail city jail...

Well he put me outside in a dark corner
And before you could say hypocrite he hit me on the head
And I said oooh please don't hit me on the head
I can't protect myself with these handcuffs on
And he hit me again and he hit me again and he hit me again
And I said please don't stand on my feet when you hit me
I'll break my ankles when I fall

City jail city jail...

Well about that time they threw me in the wagon
And that waitress walked out with a sailor
I said hey you! Not you, I'm talkin' to the purple people eater
Yes you lady! Quote! You're the cause of it all! Unquote.
And she said get me away from that horrible man, Harry.

And as they hauled me away I said everybody have a nice evening

Oor Hamlet tells the whole story of Shakespeare's Hamlet in 12 verses. I first heard it from Martin Carthy.

words by Adam McNaughton, music Mason`s Apron?

There was this king sitting in his garden all alane
When his brother in his ear poured a wee bit of henbane.
He stole his brother's crown and his money and his widow.
But the dead king walked and got his son and said "Hey listen, kiddo!

"I've been killed, and it's your duty then to take revenge on Claudius.
Kill him quick and clean and show the nation what a fraud he is."
The boy said "Right, I'll do it. But I'll have to play it crafty.
So no one will suspect me, I'll kid on that I'm a dafty."

Then with all except Horatio, cuz he counts him as a friend,
Hamlet, that's the boy, puts on he's round the bend.
But because he was not ready for obligatory killing,
He tried to make the king think he was tuppence off a shilling.

Got a rise out of Polonius, treats poor Ophelia vile,
Told Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Denmark's a bloody jail.
Then a troupe of travelling actors, like Seven Eighty-four,
Arrived to do a special one night gig in Elsinore.

    Hamlet! Hamlet! Loved his mommy!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! Acting barmy!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! Hesitatin',
    Wonders if the ghost's a cheat
    And that is why he's waitin'.

Then Hamlet wrote a scene for the players to enact
While Horatio and he watched to see if Claudius cracked.
The play was called "The Mousetrap" (not the one that's running now),
And sure enough, the king walked out before the final bow.

So Hamlet's got the proof that Claudius gave his dad the dose.
The only problem being, now, that Claudius knows he knows.
So while Hamlet tells his mother her new husband's not a fit one,
Uncle Claude puts out a contract with the English king as hit man.

And when Hamlet killed Polonius, the concealed corpus delecti,
Was the king's excuse to send him for an English hempen necktie.
With Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to make sure he got there,
Hamlet jumped the boat and put the finger on that pair.

Meanwhile Leartes heard his dad had been stabbed through the arras.
He came running back to Elsinore, toot-sweet, hotfoot from Paris.
And Ophelia, with her dad killed by the man she wished to marry,
After saying it with flowers, she committed hari-cari.

    Hamlet! Hamlet! Nae messin'!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! Learned his lesson!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! Yorick's crust
    Convinced him that men, good or bad,
    At last must come to dust.

Then Leartes lost his cool and was demanding retribution.
The king said "Keep your head, and I'll provide you a solution."
He arranged a sword fight for the interested parties,
With a blunted sword for Hamlet, and a sharpened sword for Leartes.

To make things double sure, the old "belt and braces" line,
He fixed a poison sword tip, and a poison cup of wine.
The poison sword got Hamlet, but Leartes went and muffed it,
'Cause he got stabbed himself, and he confessed before he snuffed it.

Then Hamlet's mommy drank the wine, and as her face turned blue,
Hamlet said "I think the king's a baddie through and through."
"Incestuous, murderous, damned Dane," he said to be precise,
And made up for hesitating once by killing Claudius twice,

For he stabbed him with the sword and forced the wine between his lips.
He cried "The rest is silence," and cashed in all his chips.
They fired a volley over him that shook the topmost rafter.
And Fortinbras, knee-deep in Danes, lived happily ever after.

    Hamlet! Hamlet! Oh so gory!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! End of story!
    Hamlet! Hamlet! I'm away!
    If you think this is boring,
    You should read the bloody play.

The (unintentionally) funniest rendition of a humorous song was when I heard 'Hairy Mary' being sung by a man from the Western Isles, probably Lewis or Harris; he really thought he was singing this song of lost love in Glasgow with a Glaswegian accent, when in fact he still had a very strong Hebridean one. Everyone in the room was trying their best not to laugh but there were tears running down faces and people in contortions - -- !

That song sounds a lot like one I heard Arnie Naiman sing called If I Had A Nose Full Of Nickels. I wonder which one came first.

If I had a nose full of nickels
I know just what I would do
I would give them to folks who are having tough times
I know that would bring me a heart full of dimes

I would spend the dimes on streetcars
To take poor kids to the zoo
That would leave me with one streetcar token
Yes my heart would be broke, but not broken

Like I said to Mitch, I would always be rich
With a nose full of nickels and you

Like I said to Mitch, if you're poor and not rich
I would sneeze all my nickles at-you. (achoo)

I think the most I've ever laughed at a song was my first hearing of 'The Sound of Music' as done by the Bonzos on their 'Gorilla' album.

However, the funniest line I ever heard in a song was intended to be serious, which only added to the effect: "I would crawl on my hands and knees to reach your back door".

I can only apologise to the author for my involuntary reaction and lamentably bad taste, but it rendered me virtually incontinent.

Mike Cross' tune was not Little Boxes, I must've been thinking of Malvina at the time. Mike's tune was Little Ditches, about a family who all worked in the undertaking business.
"We made our riches
Putting folks in little ditches
Six feet under the ground."

"Papa looked just like an old church deacon
But underneath he really was a clown.
He said,"Folks are just dying for our service
And you know we'd be the last to let 'em down."

A song by Todd Snider about a guy who got kicked out of every bar in town so he made one in a tool shed in his back yard. What was the name of that bar?
Todd also wrote a song called Beer Run which is pretty funny, but the introduction is even funnier. He talks about writing the song and then "a couple of years later Garth Brooks wrote it again."
