I forgot, let's include: "Dropkick me Jesus, through the goalposts of life"
One of my favorite people, Leroy Troy...
The Fools - "Life Sucks and Then You Die". Used to play this to end the night, followed immediately by a fast and angry "kill the guy with the ball" thrashing of Warren Zevon's/DBT's version "Play It All Night Long" . After 3-4 sets of playing nice, the "shock and awe" of the Zevon tune meant there was never an encore 'cause nothing we could play would make any sense after that.
Everything by these guys.
Pants by here come the mummies is the first that that comes to. Mind, followed by the rest of their catalog.
Not sure how all you good people missed this one. Dear Abby (Dear Abby)... the immortal John Prine.
We need to have some Lyle too, he had a great sense of humor.
And I just had to pick this Texas version of If I had a Boat, introduced by John Prine.
This is still THE ONE for me from Lyle. Between the subtle humor and the jazzy chords and presentation, just checks the boxes.

Leavin' Amarillo, by Billy Joe Shaver.
He's from Corsicana, Texas, but he hates Amarillo so much he wrote a song about it.
I lived in Missouri my whole life so this one hits a little close to home...but it helps to laugh I guess
Oh, back when the most dangerous drug was heroin...heres to simpler times friends.
90% of Ray Stevens’ catalogue.
the Stones, “Dear Doctor”
A Boy Named Sue
Ray Wylie Hubbard can turn a funny phrase...”Snake Farm” is a good example.
The song itself isn’t really funny, the the twist at the end of “The Corvette Song” (“it’s the brunette in your Vette that turns me on...”) is funny.
I like individual lines from songs (“the devil made me do it the first time, the second time I done it on my own”, “they popped me for possession of something that was gone”, “and found my cleanest dirty shirt”)...thing that are brilliantly and subtly humorous...
"Help, I'm a cop! Help, I'm a cop!"
may have had the opposite effect though...
7 pages worth of posts and not a single mention of Chuck Berry's "Ding-a-ling."
I'll add the Who's "Squeeze Box," which might possibly be matched by their earlier "Mary Anne With the Shaky Hands."
