Anyone remember any of the crazy songs from the olden days? I do. Here's one. It's called the Purple People Eater and I think it's from the fifties:<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky<br><br>
It had the one long horn, one big eye.<br><br>
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"<br><br>
It looks like a purple people eater to me.<br><br>
It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.<br><br>
(one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)<br><br>
A one-eyed one-horned, flyin' puple people eater<br><br>
Sure looks strange to me. (one eye?)<br><br>
Well he came down to earth and lit in a tree<br><br>
I said Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me<br><br>
I heard him say in a voice so gruff<br><br>
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough<br><br><br><br>
It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin purple people eater.<br><br>
(one-eyed, one-horned, flyin purple people eater)<br><br>
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin purple people eater<br><br>
Sure looks strange to me. (one eye?)<br><br>
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line<br><br>
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine<br><br>
But that's not the reason that I came to land<br><br>
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band<br><br>
Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flying purple<br><br>
people eater. Pidgeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin'<br><br>
purple people eater (we wear short shorts)<br><br>
Flyin' purple people eater<br><br>
sure looks strange to me.<br><br>
And then he swung from the tree and lit on the<br><br>
ground. He started to rock, really rockin' around<br><br>
It was a crazy little ditty with a swingin' tune<br><br>
(sing aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom)<br><br>
Well, bless my soul, rock and roll<br><br>
flyin' purple people eater.<br><br>
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple peopleeater.<br><br>
Flyin' little people eater<br><br>
Sure looks strange to me. (purple people?)<br><br>
And then he went on his way, and then what do<br><br>
you know. I saw him last night on a TV show.<br><br>
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead<br><br>
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in<br><br>
his head (clarinet solo) ( Tequila)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ok. I know. But I'm bored.

I posted in the random information thread and it made me think of this song:<br><br><br><br>
Now I've got a guy and his name is Dooley<br><br>
He's my guy and I love him truly<br><br>
He's not good lookin', heaven knows<br><br>
But I'm wild about his crazy clothes<br><br><br><br>
He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces<br><br>
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man<br><br>
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces<br><br>
And a big Panama with a purple hat band<br><br><br><br>
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh<br><br>
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh<br><br><br><br>
He takes me deep-sea fishing in a submarine<br><br>
We got to drive-in movies in a limousine<br><br>
He's got a whirly-birdy and a 12-foot yacht

I love the Monster Mash! I just heard the Turtles on the car radio, "You Know She'd Rather Be With Me". It's not a funny song, but it reminded me of summer in the sixties. Maybe I'll start a thread on songs that have special meaning when you were growing up!

Good idea! One song I love althought it is not really silly (a little bit before my time but still love it is) Aquarius/Let the Sunshine in by the Fifth Dimension. It was in Hair. Too me it is a silly happy hippie song! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

He was a famous trumpet man from old Chicago way<br><br>
He had a boogie style that no one else could play<br><br>
He was the top man at his craft<br><br>
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft<br><br>
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam<br><br>
It really brought him down, because he couldn't jam<br><br>
The Captain seemed to understand<br><br>
Because the next day the Cap' went out and drafted a band<br><br>
And now the company jumps when he plays reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
A-toot a-toot, a-toot diddle-ee-ada-toot<br><br>
He blows it eight to the bar<br><br>
In boogie rhythm<br><br>
He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar<br><br>
Is playin' with 'im<br><br><br><br>
He makes the company jump when he plays reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
He was the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br>
And when he plays boogie-woogie bugle<br><br>
He's as busy as a bzz bee<br><br>
And when he plays he makes the company jump<br><br>
Eight to the bar<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
Toot toot toot<br><br>
Toot diddle-ee-ada-toot-diddle-ee-ada<br><br>
Toot toot he blows it eight to the bar<br><br><br><br>
He can't blow a note<br><br>
If the bass and guitar isn't with 'im<br><br><br><br>
A-and the company jumps when he plays reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
He puts the boys to sleep with boogie every night<br><br>
And wakes them up the same way in the early bright<br><br>
They clap their hands and stamp their feet<br><br>
Because they know how he plays<br><br>
When someone gives him a beat<br><br>
He really breaks it up when he plays reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B<br><br><br><br>
A-and the company jumps when he plays reveille<br><br>
He's the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B

Hello, everyone, this is your action news reporter with all the news<br><br>
that is news across the nation, on the scene at the supermarket. There<br><br>
seems to have been some disturbance here. Pardon me, sir, did you see<br><br>
what happened?<br><br><br><br>
(Witness):<br><br>
Yeah, I did. I's standin' overe there by the tomaters, and here he<br><br>
come, running through the pole beans, through the fruits and vegetables,<br><br>
nekkid as a jay bird. And I hollered over t' Ethel, I said, "Don't<br><br>
look, Ethel!" But it's too late, she'd already been incensed.<br><br><br><br>
(Chorus)<br><br>
Here he comes, look at that, look at that<br><br>
There he goes, look at that, look at that<br><br>
And he ain't wearin' no clothes<br><br><br><br>
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>
Fastest thing on two feet<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>
He's just as proud as he can be<br><br>
Of his anatomy<br><br>
He goin' give us a peek<br><br><br><br>
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>
He likes to show off his physique<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>

This is your action news reporter once again, and we're here at the gas<br><br>
station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?<br><br><br><br>
(Witness):<br><br>
Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin my car checked, he just appeared<br><br>
out of the traffic. Come streakin' around the grease rack there, didn't<br><br>
have nothin' on but a smile. I looked in there, and Ethel was gettin'<br><br>
her a cold drink. I hollered, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too<br><br>
late. She'd already been mooned. Flashed her right there in front of<br><br>
the shock absorbers.<br><br><br><br>
(Chorus)<br><br>
He ain't crude, look at that, look at that<br><br>
He ain't lewd, look at that, look at that<br><br>
He's just in the mood to run in the nude<br><br><br><br>
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>
He likes to turn the other cheek<br><br>
Look at that, look at that<br><br>
He's always makin' the news<br><br>
Wearin' just his tennis shoes<br><br>
Guess you could call him unique<br><br><br><br>
(Reporter):<br><br>
Once again, your action news reporter in the booth at the gym, covering<br><br>
the disturbance at the basketball playoff. Pardon me, sir, did you see<br><br>
what happened?<br><br><br><br>
(Witness):<br><br>
Yeah, I did. Half time, I's just goin' down thar to get Ethel a snow<br><br>
cone. And here he come, right out of the cheap seats, dribbling, right<br><br>
down the middle of the court. Didn't have on nothing but his PF's.<br><br>
Made a hook shot and got out through the concessions stand. I hollered up<br><br>
at Ethel, I said, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too late. She'd<br><br>
already got a free shot. Grandstandin', right there in front of the<br><br>
home team.<br><br><br><br>
(Chorus) (Witness):<br><br>
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak Here he comes again.<br><br>
Look at that, look at that Who's that with him?<br><br>
The fastest thing on two feet Ethel? Is that you, Ethel?<br><br>
Look at that, look at that What do you think you're<br><br>
He's just as proud as he can be doin'? You git your<br><br>
Of his anatomy clothes on!<br><br>
He's gonna give us a peek<br><br><br><br>
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak Ethel! Where you goin'?<br><br>
Look at that, look at that Ethel, you shameless<br><br>
He likes to show off his physique hussy! Say it isn't so,<br><br>
Look at that, look at that Ethel! Ethelllllll!!!<br><br>

my dad also laughs hysterically at St George and the Dragonet, by Stan Freburg, which while not a song, is a recorded for radio parody of the classic Drag Net, and is hilarious. the words to it can be found here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/lyrics2/nov_stgeorge.html" target="_blank">http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/page..._stgeorge.html</a><br><br><br><br>
but if you can find a page where you can listen to it, i'd recommend it, its very funny, especially if you know and remember the origional dragnet.

lol, sure you can... you don't have to remember it from new, to know something. the extent of my memories of the 'olden days' stops at about 1984 at the earliest- i'm in my 20's- i just have pretty old parents, and a little bit of knowledge of some old stuff, lol.

TITLE: The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun<br><br>
Lyrics<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Hooooo - It was homecoming night at my high school<br><br>
Hooooo - Everyone was there, it was totally cool<br><br>
Hooooo - I was real excited, I almost wet my jeans<br><br>
Hooooo - 'Cause my best friend Debbie was homecoming queen<br><br><br><br>
She looked so pretty in pink chiffon, chiffon<br><br>
Riding the float with her tiara on, tiara on<br><br>
Holding this humongous bouquet in her hand, bouquet<br><br>
She looked straight out of Disneyland<br><br><br><br>
You know, like the Cinderella ride, I mean definitely an E ticket, E<br><br>
ticket<br><br>
The crowd was cheering, everyone was stoked, was stoked<br><br>
I mean it was like the whole school was totally coked or something<br><br>
The band was playing Evergreen<br><br>
And all of a sudden somebody screamed<br><br><br><br>
Look out! The homecoming queen's got a gun!<br><br><br><br>
{Refrain}<br><br>
Everybody run, the homecoming queen's got a gun<br><br>
Everybody run, the homecoming queen has got a gun<br><br><br><br>
Debbie's smiling and waving her gun<br><br>
Picking off cheerleaders one by one<br><br>
Oh Buffie's pompom just blew to bits<br><br>
Oh no, Mitzie's head just did the splits<br><br>
God, my best friend's on a shooting spree<br><br>
Stop it, Debbie, you're embarrassing me<br><br>
How could you do what you just did<br><br>
Are you having a really bad period<br><br><br><br>
{Refrain}<br><br><br><br>
Stop Debbie, you're making a mess<br><br>
Powder burns all over your dress<br><br><br><br>
An hour later the cops arrived<br><br>
By then the entire glee club had died, no big loss<br><br>
You wouldn't believe what they brought to stop her<br><br>
Tear gas, machine guns, even a chopper<br><br>
"Throw down your gun and tiara and come out of the float"<br><br>
Debbie didn't listen to what the cop said<br><br>
She aimed and fired and now the math teacher's dead<br><br>
Oh it's really sad but kind of a relief<br><br>
I mean, we had this big test coming up next week<br><br><br><br>
{Refrain}<br><br><br><br>
Debbie's really having a blast<br><br>
She's wasting half of the class<br><br><br><br>
The cops fired a warning shot that blew her off the float<br><br>
I tried to scream "duck" but it stuck in my throat<br><br>
She hit the ground and did a flip, it was real acrobatic<br><br>
But I was crying so hard I couldn't work my Instamatic<br><br>
I ran down to Debbie, I had to find out<br><br>
What made her do it, why'd she freak out<br><br>
I saw the bullet had got her right in the ear<br><br>
I knew then the end was near<br><br><br><br><br><br>
So I ran down and I said, in her good ear, "Debbie, why'd you do it?" She raised her head, smiled, and said "I - I did it for Johnny." Johnny? Well like who's Johnny? Answer me, Debbie, who's Johnny? Does anybody here know Johnny? Are you Johnny? There was one guy named Johnny but he was a total geek, he always had food in his braces. Answer me, Debbie, who's Johnny? Oh God this is like that movie Citizen Kane you know where you later find out Rosebud was a sled? But we'll never know who Johnny was because like she's dead.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Everybody run, the homecoming queen's got a gun<br><br>
Everybody run, the homecoming queen has got a<br><br>
Everybody run<br><br>
Everybody run, the homecoming queen has got a

How about Disco Duck from 1976?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Went to a party the other night<br><br>
All the ladies were treating me right<br><br>
Moving my feet to the disco beat<br><br>
How in the world could I keep my seat<br><br>
All of a sudden I began to change<br><br>
I was on the dance floor acting strange<br><br>
Flapping my arms I began to cluck<br><br>
Look at me..I'm the disco duck<br><br><br><br>
Disco Duck: Ah get down mama, I've got to have me a woman, ha ha ha ha ha<br><br>
Chorus: Disco, disco duck<br><br>

Chorus: Disco<br><br>
Disco Duck & Chorus: Disco<br><br>
Chorus: Disco disco duck<br><br>
Disco Duck: All right<br><br>
Chorus: Disco disco duck<br><br>
Disco Duck: Ah get down mama, oh mama shake your tail feather, ha ha ha ha ha<br><br><br><br>
When the music stopped I returned to my seat But there's no stoppin' a duck and his beat So I got back up to try my luck Why look<br><br><br><br>
Disco Duck: Everybody's doin' the<br><br>
Disco Duck & Chorus: Disco, disco duck<br><br>
Disco Duck & Chorus: Disco, disco duck<br><br>

Anybody know this one?<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">On Top of Spaghetti<br><br><br><br>
On top of spaghetti,<br><br>
All covered with cheese,<br><br>
I lost my poor meatball,<br><br>
When somebody sneezed.<br><br><br><br>
It rolled off the table,<br><br>
And on to the floor,<br><br>
And then my poor meatball,<br><br>
Rolled out of the door.<br><br><br><br>
It rolled in the garden,<br><br>
And under a bush,<br><br>
And then my poor meatball,<br><br>
Was nothing but mush.<br><br><br><br>
The mush was as tasty<br><br>
As tasty could be,<br><br>
And then the next summer,<br><br>
It grew into a tree.<br><br><br><br>
The tree was all covered,<br><br>
All covered with moss,<br><br>
And on it grew meatballs,<br><br>
And tomato sauce.<br><br><br><br>
So if you eat spaghetti,<br><br>
All covered with cheese,<br><br>
Hold on to your meatball,<br><br>
Whenever you sneeze.</div>

Song: They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!<br><br><br><br>
Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to<br><br>
leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...<br><br>
You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see<br><br>
I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..<br><br>
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!<br><br>
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa<br><br>
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be<br><br>
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're<br><br>
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!<br><br><br><br>
You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said<br><br>
that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???<br><br>
I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and<br><br>
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..<br><br><br><br><br><br>
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,<br><br>
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.<br><br>

weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're<br><br>
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!<br><br><br><br>
I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you pay me back<br><br>

I listed to a bit of Dr. Demento myself when I was young. When I was in 9th or 10th grade, there was a kid in school who was 2 or 3 years younger who was a Dr. Demento fanatic. He'd listen to all the songs and memorize them. This was one of his favorites. At a party at the schoolmistress's house (I went to a private school for those two years), he actually performed a skit to that song, finishing off by walking fully clothed into the swimming pool. He was the hit of the evening. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

This one is from my mom's era:<br><br><br><br>
I'll take two legs from any table<br><br>
I'll take two arms from any chair<br><br>
I'll take a body from a chevrolet<br><br>
And from a sofa chair, I'll take some hair, some hair.<br><br>
I'll take a neck from any bottle<br><br>
and baby when I do<br><br>
I'll get more lovin from a gosh darn dummy<br><br>
Than I'll ever get out of you!

I used to love Ray Stevens when I was a kid. My favorite was the Squirrel song.<br><br><br><br>
But my favorite is probably the short people song. Maybe because I was so tall as a kid - I was already 5'10" at age 12.<br><br><br><br><i>Short People<br><br>
Randy Newman<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Short People got no reason<br><br>
Short People got no reason<br><br>
Short People got no reason<br><br>
To live<br><br><br><br>
They got little hands<br><br>
And little eyes<br><br>
And they walk around<br><br>
Tellin' great big lies<br><br>
They got little noses<br><br>
And tiny little teeth<br><br>
They wear platform shoes<br><br>
On their nasty little fett<br><br><br><br>
Well, I don't want no Short People<br><br>
Don't want no Short People<br><br>
Don't want no Short People<br><br>
Round here<br><br><br><br>
Short People are just the same<br><br>
As you and I<br><br>
(A Fool Such As I)<br><br>
All men are brothers<br><br>
Until the day they die<br><br>
(It's A Wonderful World)<br><br><br><br>
Short People got nobody<br><br>
Short People got nobody<br><br>
Short People got nobody<br><br>
To love<br><br><br><br>
They got little baby legs<br><br>
And they stand so low<br><br>
You got to pick 'em up<br><br>
Just to say hello<br><br>
They got little cars<br><br>
That got beep, beep, beep<br><br>
They got little voices<br><br>
Goin' peep, peep, peep<br><br>
They got grubby little fingers<br><br>
And dirty little minds<br><br>
They're gonna get you every time<br><br>
Well, I don't want no Short People<br><br>
Don't want no Short People<br><br>
Don't want no Short People<br><br>
'Round here</i>
