Merritt Songs That Make You Laugh (20) RE: Songs That Make You Laugh 07 Dec 02


Songs that get laughs for me at pubs & clubs:

~ The Eggplant That Ate Chicago - orig. by Dr West's Medicine Band & Junk Band; reworked lyrics slightly so that each mention of Chicago is replaced with a city progressively closer to burg where I'm playing

~ Lookin' For Trouble - orig by Steve Goodman; how funny tiz depends somewhat on audience; dark lyrics seem to encourage some folks to order another drink; played it for a community theater group recently tho' & they found it to be a real howler

~ Man Smart(Woman Smarter) - orig calypso tune by King Radio (1952); "Let us look at woman and man, and see which one is smarter,
some say man, but I say no!; the woman got the man like a puppet show, etc..."

~ You Can't Help It If You're Still In Love With Me (C-2) by Will Hankums the western-country artist

~ You Rascal You orig by Sam Theard (1931); a hit for Louis Armstrong; there are R & X rated versions; "I'll be glad when you're gone, you rascal, you, I'll be glad when you're dead, you Dirty Dog, etc.."
