Subject: Lyr Add: HOW FUCKING ROMANTIC^^
From: Bagpuss
Date: 08 May 01 - 11:59 AM

I am just listening to a newly bought CD (69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields) and the last song made me laugh out loud - it was so unexpected. What songs really made you laugh the first time you heard them?

Here's the song that made me snort water out of my nose....

How Fucking Romantic

How fucking romantic
All the stars are out
twinkling twinkling twinkling
and fluttering about
What a tacky sunset
What a vulgar moon
Play another charming
Rodgers & Hart tune
How fucking romantic
Must we really waltz
Drag another cliche
howling from the vaults
Love you, obviously,
like you really care,
even though you treat me
like a dancing bear
Toss your bear a goldfish
as it cycles by
Don't forget to feed your bear
or it'll die

Eric Bogle's Nobody's Moggy! I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair, and I'm not easily amused!

The thing with that song is that it is simultaneosly so gross and yet so funny, I know I shouldn't like it, but I do!

John Prine's Dear Abby. Or this from his other little gem, All the Best:

I wish you don't do like I do
And ever fall in love with someone like you

Anybody remember a song Sammy Kershaw had out several years ago - Queen of the Double Wide Trailer? At first I thought that was the most idiotic thing I had ever heard. After I listened to it a few times I thought it almost brilliant:

She said He rebuilds engines and his name is Earl
He's the Charlie Daniels of the torque wrench

And then of course, there's the saga of why Paddy can't come to work today (The Excuse Note).

Jake Thackray - Bantam Cock
Tom Paxton - Forest Lawn
Trad - The Sicknote (aka The Barrel, aka Paddy's not at work today)

But the one that had me hysterical most recently was Clementine sung to the tune of Cwm Rhondda. The whole thing of a roomful of guys doing their best Welsh male voice choir on "Oh, my darling Clementine (Clem-en-tiiiine)" was too funny for words, and I was having real problems singing along.

In a similar vein, the entire queue in the student's union takeaway singing Unchained Melody is close to unbeatable.

Not sure what it's called but the one that says
"My girlfriends name is Nancy but George is my best friend"
Geoff sings it occasionally but was never better received than the time he sang it in Whitby and remembered about half way through that a six foot goth transvestite had just come in the pub and was in fact sitting almost directly behind him!! He/she had in fact gone to the toilet (not sure which one)but the picture of horror on everyones face as they wondered who would finish first was a real sight!! Geoff chose to finish the song given that it is really not offensive and I am still not sure how much was heard by the goth as I was too busy laughing!

The Vicar and the Frog - no matter how many times I hear it, it always gets me.

Wardrobe of my Soul. Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

Most stuff by Stanley Accrington (If you have never heard him find some stuff NOW)

The Lake District Sheep song (can't remember the title)

The sheep are glowing in the dark
You can see their ghostly presence
Lighting up the Lakeland Hills
With an Eerie luminescance....

Such dreadful puns as -

"The land prices are plummeting, no-one can sell a field"

(possibly brit only humour - sorry to those over the water!)

Speaking of Cheryl Wheeler, she did a concert in our area a coupla weeks back, and did one about the Handy House -- a brand name of portable john. I think it has to be heard in concert with her intro. She is so brilliant at whipping you back and forth from lyrical love songs to gut busters. If you haven't heard her live, go, go, go. No pun intended.

Any song from Bob Gibson / Shel Silverstein's "Makin
A Mess Out Of Commercial Success", especially the one
where they are makin' a Miller Lite Beer Commmercial
on Duval St. in Key West.

Also!

A song by a fellow, I believe his name is Trafidlo
(sorry, lost track of his first name) that takes
liberties with that absolutely awful K Rogers song
"The Gambler". In this version the midnight train
becomes a laundry and the asinine advice is about
] how to wash clothes.

The Saga of the Ponderosa, sung by Lorne Greene. A rivetting account of the Cartwright migration to the Ponderosa Ranch, the begetting of the Cartwright boys, and the curious and sad propensity of the Cartwright wives to perish. Add an undulating, haunting "Pon-da-rohhh-sa, Pon-da-ROHHH-sa" chorus and I get all teary. I'm sorry, I had no luck doing a lyrics search.

Happy Trails, Bardford

Talking Vietnam Potluck Blues --Tom Paxton
Lots of stuff from MST3K, like the "Canada Song", "Let's Have A Patrick Swayze Christmas," "The Werewolf Megamix," "When I Held Your Brain In My Arms," "Sodium," and "The Waffle Song".

One of the mudcatters sent me a tape of him singing "The Theme From Gilligan's Isle", very slowly. The audience was howling from the first line. If he hadn't also sent me a note saying that he had his hand clapped up against his ear, eyes closed and was doing it like a very traditional Ballad singer, I'd have never known why they were laughing.

Take a look at the thread called Humorous songs.

One I posted there is Lou and Peter Berryman's Here's Louie With The Sports. It's like a lot of Berryman songs, in that it sneaks up on you. The first verse seems kind of pointless (or, depending on the song, incomprehensible). By the second verse, you begin to see what they're getting at, and it makes you smile. By the third verse, they're getting really over the top, so you laugh. By the last verse, you're ROFL.

Challis--Was Zombie Jamboree not Kingston Trio?? I think.

My fave in the Calypso genre was "Put de Lime in the Coconut," c.1970 something. If I think about it I'll retrieve the artist.

I said, doctor! is there nothing I can take
I said, doctor! to relieve this bellyache? "You put de lime in de coconut and call me in de morning."

Dave the Gnome--

Don't apologize about your sheep song; there's an eerie parallel over here. Maddening thing is, I tuned into the middle of it on the radio and was called away so I missed the credits, BUT the idea was a herd of cattle breaks through the fence and gets into the White Sands Proving Ground, they end up doing things like glowing instead of lowing, etc. Sounds like an uncanny parallel. What was the background on the sheep thing? Sounds like nuclear accident???

you put your false teeth on the mantle

I'll second the Flanders & Swann and Tom Lehrer and add a lot of stuff from Ray Stevens. I think my favorite is "The Day I Taught Charlene McKenzie How To Drive," followed closely by "The Pirate Song," but there are dozens of others.

Also Joel Mabus's "The Preacher and the Flood."

The Chad Mitchell Trio's versions of "Sigmund Freud" and "The John Birch Society" are still good for a chuckle.

And a lot of the Smothers Brothers' stuff still holds up.

Another classic Stanley Accrington song is the tragic Ballad of Matty Groves (short, short version). It should be sung as fast as you possibly can:

Matty Groves gets seduced by a high class bird, She takes him home to bed. They're at it hammer and tongs when the husband comes home unexpected, "What the bloody hell's going on here?" he says and stabs Matty in the guts, "What d'you think of you lover-boy now?" he says, but she's cheeky so he chops her head off!

Another great short song in less than good taste (sorry) goes like this:

Old MacDonald was dyslexic - Oh, E, Oh, E, I.

The Hairy Bowsies (a piss-take Irish ballad group with over-the-top Republican tendancies, courtesy of the comedian Paul Woodfull) had me laughing til I cried the first time I heard them. Their album, "Publocked" has a whole host of maudlin ballads and hard-core patriotism. It's very tongue in cheek. And the songs all sound scarily genuine. My favourite is "Flow river flow", with a chorus that goes:

"Flow, river, flow
F*ck off to the sea
Go where you are wanted
To the desert of Gobi"

They also have a send-up of "The praties they grow small" entitled "The potatoes aren't looking the best". Twisted, but very, very funny. The interview with him describing the concept of "geographical folk" (singing songs about hills, rivers and mountains with the group Wild Mountain Badger) is pure genius.

There's more info about them here and here.

A song by His Worship and The Pig... "

"You're Only As Old As The Woman You Feel."

Now that you're 50 I bet you a quid
That your bodily functions don't work like they did.
To see yourself naked is a little distressing
Your skin fits alright but looks like it needs pressing.

Chorus: But don't think that fifty is the end of the line,
That you've run out of track and you've run out of time,
For as long as you've got both your ardour and zeal,
You are only as old as the woman you feel.

Well at fifty, perhaps you're a little concerned,
That the largest amount of your candle you've burned,
But the size of your candle don't matter a bit.
What's important is how long it burns once its lit.

Chorus

Well shortly you'll start growing hair once again,
From your armholes and earholes and holes I wont name,
And no-ones explained it and I've never read,
Why it grows down your nostrils but not on your head.
Chorus.

Now when you were just twenty-one all your girlfriends,
Say that you'd go like a Mercedes Benz,
But now the wife tells you your engine is blowing,
She starts you by hand and jumps on once you're going.

Chorus.

The last verse is a killer we've performed it infront of a wide range of audiences and it's always amazing to see very prim and proper ladies (of all ages!) burst into laughter when we sing the last verse - amazingly we've never had a complaint and re-bookings keep coming in!

Take care

Stairway to Gilligans Island - I don't know who did it and I have only heard it twice. "and she's buy-i-ing a stairway to Gilligans I-i-sland". All the words to the intro and outro themes of Gilligan's Island set perfectly to the tune of Stairway to heaven. The funniest part is when it kicks up to the big stupid,distorted, falsetto ending " With Gilligan, the skipper too.....". I know it is just a send up but I can't think of one I ever laughed harded at.
