Funny Country Song Titles
radio-info.com Boston board ^ | 01/20/06 | raccoonradio

Posted on 01/20/2006 1:24:05 PM PST by raccoonradio

We were talking on a radio discussion board about HD radio; a Boston country station announced that they will feature a classic country channel on it (High Definition radio, which is available but expensive for now, allows several sub-channels to be placed on broadcast frequencies). Anyway, I started to rattle off some funny country song titles. Join in!

Actual Country Song Titles:

Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off--Joe Nichols

Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox If I Die--Joe Diffie

Dropkick Me Jesus Through the Goalposts of Life--Bobby Bare

Here's A Quarter--Call Someone Who Cares--Travis Tritt

I'm A People--George Jones

Fax Me A Beer--Hank Williams, Jr.

The One on the Left is On The Right--Johnny Cash

A Boy Named Sue--ditto (writer: Shel Silverstein)

She's Got A Butt Bigger Than The Beatles (spoof of "They Got A Love Bigger than the Beatles)--Cletus T. Judd

"How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away"--Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks


TOPICS: Humor; Miscellaneous; Music/Entertainment
KEYWORDS: countrymusic; humor
A reply post included:

Jimmy Buffett's (kind of country) "The Weather is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful"

David Frizell's "I'm Gonna Hire A Wino To Decorate Our Home"

"If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me"--Bellamy Bros.

Kinky Friedman's "A-H From El Paso"; "Ride Em Jewboy"; "They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore"; "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed"

Note that the song involved is usually just as funny as the title, if not more so. I guess we can expand it to "country novelty songs" in general, not just country songs with
funny titles.

Buffet also does "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw", which was featured in the 1991 William Hurt movie The Doctor, IIRC.

Yeah, took me to a link on amazon.com to his album Mississippi Squirrel Revival. One review of it said: "The only songs which some might not like is "Joggin" and "I'm Kissin' You Goodbye". The reasons are because "Joggin" is a satire on excercise freaks and the latter is a run of the mill love ballad which might disgust some with the lyric "get your tongue outta my mouth 'cause I'm Kissin' You Goodbye"...i like it because it's pure low-brow novelty that doesn't mean anything other than being odd...which is what a real novelty song is anyway."

"My Uncle Used To Love Me, But She Died", "Chug-a-lug"- Roger Miller

"Wildwood Weed" - Jim Stafford

Most songs by Ray Stevens

There was one titled "Does Your Chewing Gum Loose It's Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight", but I can't remember who did it.

"Convoy" - C. W. McCall

Another one I can't remember who did - "If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me".

Roger Miller's catalog had a LOT of funny songs. He also had a wry wit. One of his quotes: "The human mind is a wonderful thing, it starts working from before you're born and doesn't stop till you sit down to write a song"

"You're the Reason Our Kids are Ugly" -- Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn

I think Loretta throws in a line at the very end that Conway hadn't heard before, based on his reaction to it...

And if you play a Country record backwards, you dog comes back to life, you get your job back, your wife comes home, and your truck starts running just fine.

>>"Does Your Chewing Gum Loose It's Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight"

Skiffle great Lonnie Donegan, who passed away a couple years back, did this song. (If tin whistles are made of tin,
what are foghorns made of?) He also did "Rock Island Line"
and was an early influence of the Beatles. I have a best of
CD of his material. Donegan also collaborated with
Van Morrison on an album called the Skiffle Sessions
a while back.

One interesting contestant on the original Gong Show found a way to get on and off stage without getting "gonged". There was a rule: you couldn't gong an act until 30 seconds of
it passed. Well, this guy strode on stage with a cowboy hat and sang one line of a country song:

"Well, it's been so lonesome in the saddle since my
horse died."

End of song. Didn't get gonged because it only lasted
5 seconds or so! So there we have a country novelty song,
and a very short one.

Austin Lounge Lizards - Jesus Loves Me But He Can't Stand You

Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks - How Can I Miss You If you Won't Go Away?
