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.

I lived in Missouri my whole life so this one hits a little close to home...but it helps to laugh I guess

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...

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."
