Silly Song Titles

The other day as I was driving along, I flipped through the stations and stumbled upon one playing “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold it Against Me?” by the Bellamy Brothers.  If you’re at all familiar with the song, you know that the next line is as good (or bad, depending on your take) as the song’s title:  “If I swore you were an angel would you treat me like the devil tonight?”

I love the Bellamy Brothers and have since a friend introduced me to the group’s music way back when I was a freshman in college.  The group has a nice sound.  They also have a good sense of humor when it comes to songwriting.  Another one of their songs is, “Do You Love as Good as You Look?”

As I was driving along, I started thinking about some of the funny/bad/odd song titles that the world of country music has given us, and before I knew it I was howling.  I thought I’d share some of my all-time favorites.

I Got Tears in My Ears from Lying on My Back Cryin’ on My Pillow Over You

You’re the Reason Our Kids Are so Ugly

It’s Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night (That Chewed My Ass Out All Day Long)

I Guess I Had Your Leavin’ Coming

If Drinking Don’t Kill Me, Her Memory Will

If You Can’t Be Good, Be Bad With Me

If You Don’t Leave Me Alone, I’ll Go Find Someone Else Who Will

I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home

I’m So Miserable Without You, It’s Like Having You Here

You Ain’t Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking

Get Your Tongue Out of My Mouth, ‘Cause I’m Kissing You Goodbye

Don’t Roll Those Bloodshot Eyes at Me

How Did You Get So Ugly Overnight?

Thanks to the Cathouse, I’m in the Doghouse With You

Whiskey For My Men, Beer For My Horses

Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off

The Weather is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful

and one of the best ones ever…

Thank God and Greyhound She’s Gone

What funny/bad/silly song titles did I leave off the list?  Are there any songs that make you laugh out loud when you hear them?

    Marian—it’s not a song title, but many, many years ago I was in the car with Doug and singing along with the radio—–” one toke over the line Sweet Jesus”—Doug burst out laughing and said, “Mom, a toke is a marijuana cigarette” in great disbelief, and I believe, disgust. Well, being a clueless person, I thought it must be a great song, sure to revive my heart, with the words “sweet Jesus” in it. Moms of teenagers—you just gotta love them in spite of themselves. 🙂
