I heard the song "Silly Questions" performed by a music group from Vermont years ago I don't remember any of the lyrics. Can anyone help me with this as I found the song very amusing.As well, can you contribute other amusing songs? Thanks,

Were you thinking of FOOLISH QUESTIONS, perhaps?

A version published in 1909, with words by William Lee and music by A. Baldwin Sloane, was posted here. It was recorded by Billy Murray.

A version recorded by Sheb Wooley (aka Ben Colder) and attributed to Arthur Smith was posted here. Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith recorded it in 1948. Smith also recorded a sequel called MORE FOOLISH QUESTIONS in 1956.
