Funny Song Lyrics
Here are a few funny lines I have come across. What are your favorites?
“If I don’t love you baby, grits ain’t groceries, eggs ain’t poultry, and Mona Lisa was a man”
Antsy McClain and Trailer Park Troubadours describing an attractive trailer park female: “She had a tube top full of every schoolboy’s dreams”. Uncle Ledford, the trailer salesman to the young couple: “It ain’t home till you take the wheels off, it ain’t home till its up on blocks”.

“I started out with nothing and I’ve still got most of it left”

“they”ll never leave you, and if they do you won’t mind”
Double entendre line from Shake Rattle and Roll: “A one-eyed cat peepin’ in a seafood store”
Butch Hancock, talking about a temperamental Latin gal:
“They say that Spanish is a loving tongue-but she never spoke Spanish to me”
Perhaps the most famous blues song line:
“If the river was whiskey and I was a duck, I’d dive to the bottom and never come up”
One that many of us have heard:
“I’m not broken, but I am badly bent”

“She come stewing me up the last part that goes over the fence. I knew she was acting funny but I didn’t catch the hint. I ate the wrong part ….I ate the wrong part”
Hayes Carll had a very sacrilegious song on the TROUBLE IN MIND CD. See if you can find it.
