Subject: 'Gag' Song Titles
From: musicmick
Date: 15 Oct 03 - 01:14 AM

I am collecting "gag" song tiltles like "I USED TO KISS HER ON THE LIPS BUT IT'S ALL OVER NOW" and "I KISSED HER LIPS AND LEFT HER BEHIND FOR YOU" or, even, "HOW CAN I MISS YOU IF YOU WON'T GO AWAY?"
or, my favorite "I'M SO MISERABLE WITHOUT YOU, IT'S ALMOST LIKE HAVING YOU HERE".

There must be lots of them out there.

The list of country titles, below, has gone around at various times in email.

A few I have noticed:

You're the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly (Conway & Loretta)
Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart (Johnny Cash, and every line is a variant. On a live recording-- you can hear the audience cracking up.)

~S~


All I Want From You Is Away
You Can't Have Your Kate and Edith Too
I'm So Miserable Without You, It's Almost Like Having You Here
Four on the Floor and a Fifth Under the Seat
If You Can't Be Good, Be Bad With Me
Bubba Shot the Jukebox
Are You Drinkin' With Me, Jesus?
Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreen's and I Cried All the Way to Sears
How Can I Miss You if You Won't Go Away?
I'm Under the Table Over You
Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Posts of Life
Am I Double Parked by the Curbstone of Your Heart?
I'm Gonna Put a Bar in the Back of My Car and Drive Myself to Drink
Welcome to Dumpsville, Population Me
If Love Were Oil, I'd Be a Quart Low
Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed
If You Can't Be Good, Son, Be Good At It
My Phone Ain't Been Ringing, So I Guess it Wasn't You
I've Been Roped and Throwed By Jesus in the Holy Ghost Corral
I Bought the Shoes That Just Walked Out on Me
She's Acting Single, I'm Drinking Doubles
Is It Cold In Here, or Is It Just You?
We Used to Kiss on the Lips, But It's All Over Now
My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, and I Don't Love Jesus
Thank God and Greyhound She's Gone
I Changed Her Oil, She Changed My Life
How Come Your Dog Don't Bite Nobody But Me?
You Ain't Much Fun Since I Quit Drinkin'
I Don't Know Whether to Kill Myself or Go Bowling
You're the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly
If You're Gonna Do Me Wrong, Do It Right
Thanks to the Cathouse, I'm in the Doghouse With You
I Would Kiss You Through the Screen Door But It'd Strain Our Love
I Fell for Her, She Fell for Him, and He Fell for Me
You Were Only a Splinter as I Slid Down the Banister of Life
Did I Shave my Legs for This?
I Fell in a Pile of You and Got Love All Over Me
She Got the Gold Mine and I Got the Shaft
My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend, and I Sure Do Miss Him
Velcro Arms, Teflon Heart
If You Want to Keep the Beer Real Cold, Put it Next to My Ex-Wife's Heart
I Gave Her My Heart and a Diamond and She Clubbed Me with a Spade
If Whiskey Were a Woman, I'd Be Married for Sure
I Sat Down on a Beartrap (Just This Morning)
She Looks Good Through the Bottom of My Shot Glass
If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead?
Mama, Get the Hammer (There's a Fly on Papa's Head)
Red Necks, White Socks, and Blue Ribbon Beer
I Still Miss You Baby, But My Aim is Getting Better
If You Don't Leave Me, I'll Find Someone Who Will
My John Deere Was Breaking Your Field, While Your Dear John Was Breaking My Heart
I'll Marry You Tomorrow, But Let's Honeymoon Tonight

Highwoods String Band used to do "Run to the Roundhouse, Sally, the Boys Can't Corner You There."

I didn't see the old favorite "I've Got Tears in My Ears from Lying on My Back and Crying in My Sleep Over You" in WYSIWYG's list.

Calvin Trillin included a whole bunch of absurd country music song titles in his book "Runestruck." Now out of print, alas.

They are all wonderful. Well, some are more wonderful than others.
By the way, Fretless, I think that song title was "I've Got Tears In My Ears From Lyin' On My Back In My Bed While I Cry Over You".
I own a copy of "Royal Wedding" just so I can hear that "How Could You Believe Me...." song whenever I like.
Homeless, that title you suggested reminded me of "She's Got Freckles On Her BUT She's All Mine"
Once again, I thank the endless store of Mudcat trivia.

Also, Carla Ulbrich's "Please Do Something Stupid" (as in, "Won't you please do something stupid/So I can get over you?".

And speaking of lobotomies, a friend of mine, Darren Zeiger penned a song called "Lobotomy" with the refrain "Thoughts of you don't bother me/Since my lobotomy".

musicmic, your collection would not be complete without this compilation song made up of country music titles, written by Martin Pearson (a very funny man) and John Thompson (currently of Cloudstreet). Their performances of this have brought the house down every time. Thanks Sandra for putting it in another thread :-)

THE COUNTRY SONG
c. Martin Pearson & John Thompson

Mama, get the hammer, there's a fly on Papa's head.
I've been roped and thrown by Jesus in the Holy Ghost corral.
I fell in a pile of you and got love all over me,
But who bit the wart off Grandma's nose?

Chorus: I wanna whip your cow; I wanna whip your cow,
'Cause you just can't play a sad song on a banjo, anyhow.
You done tore out my heart and you stomped that sucker flat.
You made toothpicks from the timbers of my heart.

If the jukebox took teardrops, I'd cry all night long.
You stuck my heart in an old tin can and shot it off a log.
Well, I guess if you can't feel it, then it ain't really there,
And the last word in lonesome is "me."

Repeat chorus

If I can't be number one in your life, number two on you.
I can't get over you, 'til you get out from under him.
I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like you're here,
So I flushed you down the toilet of my heart.

Just about any Ray Stevens song.

Prop Me Up Beside the Juke Box When I Die

There's A Tear In My Bear

Here's A Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares

Friggin in the riggin

Every one seems to have missed

"My Tears Have Washed 'I Love You' From the Blackboard of My Heart".

Thank You Dear Lord for Victory in Korea

should be on the list, too.

SPROJ - the Society for the Protection and Retelling of Old Jokes
and other associated similar silliness. Membership is free but by
recommendation only. All suitable old jokes are given SPROJ numbers
including variations, derivations and even deviations. Well known
jokes are told by number only, hence by calling out (for instance) the number 13b to ardent SPROJJERS, you will, if a member of the
cognoscenti,elicit at the very least a hearty chuckle. I would like
to direct to the site on the web but it got hoovered up when spring
cleaning. Yes, we have very clean springs.

Hope that clears everything up, must go now time for the electro
therapy.

Should have mentioned before SPROJ was originated by the late Dave
Houlden.

Nurse, the electrodes please!

Apparently one prospective member had to tell some jokes for an entrance examination. "48" he called: silence. "17c": not a titter. Whatever number he called out nobody laughed.

Eventually he turned to his sponsor and said "Have I picked a load of duff jokes, then"

"Nothing wrong with the jokes - it's the way you tell them"

(I forget what number that one was)

Snuffy - Is this some sort of attempt at gaining membership by the back door? If so, it will not work, the committee will hear of this and you may be blackballed for ever.

By the way, that is basically SPROJ number one, you used the wrong
joke numbers.

The treatment is not working, more power.

I just heard the opening lines of a song said to be sung by Mills and Jones, it sounded very 40/50's American. Ah! was that Spike Jones? It din't register at the time but it fits stylistically.

"Never hit your Granny on the head with a shovel, it leaves a bad impression on her mind"

Hey, Cool Beans, I used to have the 78 of The Hoosier Hotshots singing that! The other side was 'Don't change horses in the middle of a stream (If you want to keep your britches dry!)'
How about 'They don't make Jews like Jesus anymore' by The Texas Jewboys! Real, honest!
