    Default Funny Songs

    As there isn't a tread about funny songs, I figured why not starting one:

    Because the ESC (European Song Contest) isn't hosted this year because of - you know what - a German Producer (RaabTV) decided to make a mini web version of it with all the initial contestants.

    Last week, the first 20 songs where presented and at first I was doubtful if there would be anything worthwhile to listen to because the quality of the presentations have gone downhill over the last years.

    One group from Island however made a hilarious performance:


    Another worthwhile mention is from Russia:


    Do you have any funny music (even if only lyrics) that have sticked with you?

    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.

    John Cooper Clarke - Beasley Steet
    Brilliantly funny


    Far from crazy pavements
    The taste of silver spoons
    A clinical arrangement
    On a dirty afternoon
    Where the fecal germs of Mr Freud
    Are rendered obsolete
    The legal term is "null and void"
    In the case of Beasley Street

    In the cheap seats where murder breeds
    Somebody is out of breath
    Sleep is a luxury they don't need
    A sneak preview of death
    Belladonna is your flower
    Manslaughter your meat
    Spend a year in a couple of hours
    On the edge of Beasley Street

    Where the action isn't
    That's where it is
    State your position Vacancies exist
    In an X-certificate exercise
    Ex-servicemen excrete
    Keith Joseph smiles and a baby dies
    In a box on Beasley Street

    From the boarding-houses and the bedsits
    Full of accidents and fleas
    Somebody gets it
    Where the missing persons freeze
    Wearing dead men's overcoats
    You can't see their feet
    A riff joint shuts, opens up
    Right down on Beasley Street

    Cars collide, colours clash
    Disaster-movie stuff
    For a man with a Fu Manchu moustache
    Revenge is not enough
    There's a dead canary on a swivel seat
    There's a rainbow in the road
    Meanwhile on Beasley Street
    Silence is the code

    Hot beneath the collar
    An inspector calls
    Where the perishing stink of squalor
    Impregnates the walls
    The rats have all got rickets
    They spit through broken teeth
    The name of the game is not cricket
    Caught out on Beasley Street

    The hipster and his hired hat
    Drive a borrowed car
    Yellow socks and a pink cravat
    Nothing, la-dee-dah
    OAP, mother-to-be
    Watch the three-piece suite
    When sh*t-stoppered drains
    And crocodile skis
    Are seen on Beasley Street

    The kingdom of the blind
    A one-eyed man is king
    Beauty problems are redefined
    The doorbells do not ring
    A lightbulb bursts like a blister
    The only form of heat
    Here a fellow sells his sister
    Down the river on Beasley Street

    The boys are on the wagon
    The girls are on the shelf
    Their common problem is
    That they're not someone else
    The dirt blows out
    The dust blows in
    You can't keep it neat
    It's a fully furnished dustbin
    Sixteen Beasley Street

    Vince the ageing savage
    Betrays no kind of life
    But the smell of yesterday's cabbage
    And the ghost of last year's wife
    Through a constant haze
    Of deodorant sprays
    He says retreat
    Alsations dog the dirty days
    Down the middle of Beasley Street

    People turn to poison
    Quick as lager turns to piss
    Sweethearts are physically sick
    Every time they kiss
    It's a sociologist's paradise
    Each day repeats
    On easy, cheesy, greasy, queasy Beastly Beasley Street

    Eyes dead as vicious fish
    Look around for laughs
    If I could have just one wish
    I would be a photograph
    On a permanent Monday morning
    Get lost or fall asleep
    When the yellow cats are yawning
    Around the back of Beasley Street
    You Can't Talk and Listen at the Same Time

    Robin Williamson - Zoo Blues



    [Robin Williamson, Sylvia Woods, Christopher Caswell, Jerry McMillan]

    I asped the elephant in the elevator
    Where you had gone, he said you were boozing round with the bees
    When I had the bucks my dear, you were so fawn
    Now my doe is gone and you're so colt to me
    Camels in the zoo singing one hump or two
    But I can't bear to see them no cow
    I feel the loss a lot, I miss you an ocelot
    I wonder who's kitten you now
    My llama mama what's gnu with you
    With your cat's pyjamas and his cockatoo
    I'm hippo what toucan do
    You sealed your fate with him

    Gorilla my dreams
    You're a cheetah is seems
    Fly are you lion to me
    You otter be sad losing me
    (for goodness snakes)

    I toad you donkey me waitin', why you hesitatin'
    I'll pig you up at ape, iguana bison rings and meat you at your front boar
    You mustang gone in his big black carp when he gibbon
    You that new mink cape

    There's no depenguin on you that's for sure (sheep skate)
    You played me for a sucker, at leech they said
    I was sow gull-a-bull
    Ain't no mousetake you snake I'll make you egret you treated me so cruel
    Gonna grab my cat, gonna grab my goat
    Gonna ram you worms right down your throat
    I kangaroo in this sad stoat, you sealed your fate with him
    The only place a perfect right angle ever CAN be, is the mind.
