Lyrics that crack you up

1bl's Men At Work comment got me thinking of lyrics that make me laugh - whether intentionally funny or not...

"I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine"

One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head

At risk of sounding like Paul Gambuccini...

From the musical "Chess" (I nearly typed "Chees" - Freudian or what? :lol: ). IIRC, music from the hairy, buttock-birching Swedes ex Abba and Lyrics by Sir Tim Rice (ex Lloyd Webber collaborator). I always thought "Murray Head" was one of those great nom de plumes you'd invent if you ended up in the porn industry.

Anyhoo, I still stand by "Sound Chaser" from the Yes album "Relayer" as having the best unintentional. "And what touches our soul..." C'mon Jon Anderson. Our soul = our sole = R sole etc, etc. Hope he washed his hands

Given that a great line hits you first time round, must give credit to Robbie Williams. I was paying little attention to "Life Thru a Lens" when I suddenly heard the gem of a line:

"I got on well with the gentry/ 'til I crashed Tarquin's Bentley"

Now, that has to be applauded.


... can't help but laugh at "touches our soul". I'm sure it was like being told your fly has been down all day for em.

"Lucky that my breasts are small and humble,
So you don't confuse them with mountains"

Whenever, Wherever - Shakira

There is an old Country and Western song called
"She Got The Ring and I Got The Finger"

:lol: :lol: :lol: . C+W writers, bless 'em. On a similar note (this was in the newspapers, so it must be true :shock: ):

A manufacturer of a haemorr..., hemorh..., pile ointment approached the estate of the late Johnny Cash for permission to use "Ring of Fire" in an advertizing campaign. They were particularly keen on the line, "and it burns, burns, burns..."

They refused permission, of course.

Tim's post on another thread just reminded me. There's that Carolina dance craze "The Shag". Here in Blighty, a shag is two people mutually expressing their enjoyment of each other. Without clothes or, at least, particular items pushed out of the way.

How British radio could cope with 'Shut up and Shag', 'My Baby Sure Can Shag', and (best of all) 'Shaggin' the Night Away' can only be imagined.

You know I could be wrong, but I'm sure I just heard the lyrics "We are sisters and brothers, and I want to hide from the world we're lovers" on the radio.

Kids these days :?

so you leaving-"put away the shopping bags I'll even let you take my brand new samsonite"

"Bertha Butt-one of the Butt sisters"
