    They are(supposedly)real. Exercise your right brain and come up with a funny made up title. Real titles welcomed.

    I never heard of any of those titles.

    When I was a kid they used to have novelty songs. Like "How much is
    that Doggy in the Window" and "If I knew you were Coming I'd ah Baked
    a Cake." (Both written by the guy who went on to write B'dway shows
    and "Love Makes the world Go Round".)

    There was "Itzee-Bitsee Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" and "Ahab,
    the Arab" and Maresee Doats and Doeseat Oats" and "Three Little Fishies"
    and a whole bunch more.

    These helped to make me the cultured and fascinating person what I am

    Ever read Dave Barry's book on songs people hate? It's a little book. People
    would write to him, mention a song and then say, "I HATE that song!" You
    could feel their emotion and pain right through the ink.

    My own vote for the stupidest song would be, "And Then you go and Spoil It
    All by Sayin' Somethin' Stupid Like I Love You." It was sung by Patti Page or
    one of those gals w/ a breathy little-girl voice. Positively nauseating, but it was
    a hit, so some folks musta liked it.

    How about this? Could be a title or the first chorus.

    From bad vibes of the past where sad memories belong,
    You keep coming back like an old, forgotten bong.

    Apologies to Irving Berlin.

    Be time to walk Zippy soon. Better go.

    How about this one.

    "I just lost a post and it's Friday the 13th blues."

    Why are you apologizing to the city of Berlin? I know it is the anniversary of the wall coming down but it certainly was not your fault. Are you also going to apologize for the cold war, too?



    Never mind!!

    Hahaha...your post made me laugh. I remember as a little kid wondering what is a "littlelamsedivey??? Not to mention what was a marsedoets lambseydotes?! It wasn't until much later in life when I figured out the actual lyrics that it "All made sense" ~~Jeanne

    too lethargic to think one or more up on my own...
    but somebody had a site of crazy titles, don't know how many are real (I did recognize one but only because I've posted it before, LOL). So many are such good plays on words, which I love!

    But here are some good ones from there (the first one is my favorite):

    Don't Put Me In The Ex-Files

    All My Exes Live In Texas

    Beauty's In The Eye Of The Beerholder

    Bubba Shot The Jukebox

    Here's A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)

    How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away?

    I'd Rather Be Picked Up Here Than Put Down At Home

    I Bought The Shoes That Just Walked Out On Me

    I Keep Forgetting I Forgot About You

    If The Phone Doesn't Ring, It's Me

    If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?

    I'm Gonna Hire A Wino To Decorate Our Home

    I'm The Only Hell Mama Ever raised

    Remember To Remind Me I'm Leaving

    She Feels Like A New Man Tonite

    Thank God (And Greyhound) She's Gone

    Venom Wearin' Denim

    We Never Killed Each Other (But Didn't We Try?)

    Why Have You Left the One You Left Me For?

    You Can't Have Your Kate and Edith Too

    Come Out Of The Wheatfield, Nellie, You're Going Against The Grain

    Her Only Bad Habit Is Me

    The High Cost Of Low Living

    PS: maybe there should be a post on real lyrics that make no sense?

    -but 'MacArthur Park' doesnt count, you all should know by now it was deliberately written to have no sense on a bet that it would be a hit anyway with good music and lots of emotion... forget who made that bet, Richard Harris who sang it or a friend of his...
    "All the sweet, green icing flowing down,
    somebody left the cake out in the rain,
    I don't think that I can take it,
    'cause it took so long to bake it,
    and Ill never have that recipe again!"

    McArthur Park. I forgot that I forgot this!!

    Has anyone really listened to the whole song?

    lgp Well-Known Member

    I remember back in the day a song by Tavares entitled 'Just Remember what I Told You To Forget'--LOL!!

    Another one that comes to mind was a country song, I can't think of the singer, but it was entitled 'I'm Stepppin' In From Steppin' Out On You.' That's funny!!

    And finally, a Billy Ray Cyrus classic, 'Where Am I Gonna Live When I Get Home?' That's really funny!

    there's a site where people make up parodies or completely different lyrics to popular songs of all types. I couldn't see any that I recognized as country, but plenty of others.

    This one is to the classic rock song
    "Stairway to Heaven":

    "Nineteenth Pair of Sandals"
    all of it's right here:

    (By the way, when you sing this backwards, you'll hear "Zappos is the Devil.")

    "There's a lady who's sure
    That her feet deserve more
    And she's buying her nineteenth pair of sandals

    When she gets them she knows
    That they're all open toed
    And heels aren't an option she'll pay for

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    And she's buying her nineteenth pair of sandals...."


    AND just for Rock, there's

    "Dainty, Wainty, Fuzzy, Wuzzy, Soft Pink Psychopathic Bunny"

    the whole parody of this is at

    "I was afraid to go camping last summer
    Wolves, bears, who knows what else there could be?

    But the whole trip turned out to be a bummer
    You see the Park Ranger told us to flee
    Two, three, four, what beast made that fright-ning roar?

    It was a cutesy, wootsie, sunny, funny, angry, evil, rabid bunny
    That - demolished - our campsite that day

    A dainty, wainty, fuzzy, wuzzy, soft pink psychopathic bunny
    It's Camper Season, and we were his prey
    Two, three, four, ate the host - came back for more!...."

    I forgot about Weird Al Yankovitch!!! My duaghter's used to love him when they were very young.

    Here is one: "She Got the Gold Mine, I Got the Shaft"

    I am not absolutely sure if this is actually a song, but it cracked me up!!

    Fuzzy wuzzy was a bear,
    Fuzzy wuzzy had no hair,
    Fuzzy wuzzy wasn't fuzzy
    was he?


    There is an interesting article in today's(nov 17th) Wall Street Journal about the value of music in treating stroke and Alzheimer's symptoms.[This Message was Edited on 11/17/2009]

    I'm just going to say this once, I DID read all the lyrics to Macarthurs Park. I was so intruigued by it's stupidity, or mine for not grasping it's obvious priceless worth as an award winning song.
    I never did understand why it was in the play, thanks for solving the mystery. Good Bet.

    But don't forget our own National Anthem for all you Americans. We are so kind to the migrators from the south we start out all our ballgames with "Jose can you see"???????

    Carry On.

    Gap, my son was also a Weird Al Groupie, for his 12th birthday I took him and two friends to a Weird Al concert, am I a good mom or what, today he turns 26. Ouch

    Weird Al has a song titled "12 Pains of Christmas"

    11th day was funniest:

    The eleventh thing at Christmas
    That's such a pain to me:
    Stale T.V. specials, batteries not included,
    no parking spaces
    (kid) mum I gotta go bathroom,
    charites, she's a witch I hate her,
    five months of bills,
    i dont even know half these people,
    oh who has the toilet paper,
    turn the flashlight on I blew a fuse
    and finding a Christmas tree,

    My ears are still ringing, and guess what my son wanted for his birthday, yes today? The latest Weird Al release. Yes, he is married, child in the works, graduates colleges in three monts. Do they never grow up?

    Oops sorry Rock, I guess not. :)

    I'm thinking we should come up with one of our own about the:
    The 12 Pains of Fibr or Arthritis or whatever nasty thing that plagues us

    Thanks for the fun.
