    That always makes me smile too and along the same lines, Bobby Womack's 'Looking For A Love'..... (if only I could find the lyrics to post).

      Terry Durham's Dungeons & Dragons epic, Crystal Telephone never fails to crack me up...

      If I had time I'd go listen and quote some... hopefully a little later - it's fucking hilarious

        Caravan's 'The Dog, The Dog, He's At It Again' (from 'For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night' LP) never fails for me:

        Lo-o-o-nely girl, would you like a sweet to eat?
        I've got something that I'd like you to hold
        And my brother will tell you that it's good for your cold
        So, there, surely there is nothing wrong
        Take my hand and we'll try to make a stand
        For all censorship, decency, all night long

        You're naive if you really do believe
        That the world is so full of sin
        Never look back on the things that you lack
        When you're in
        My mother said that I should stay out of bed
        But I know that I like it in there
        Legs and thighs, hellos and goodbyes
        It's all there

        Oh my oh

        (Suck a sugar, dandy, rock'n'roll
        Lick a-licking lozenge cures the soul)

        Here is my cure for colds
        And here is my cure for measles
        When you've tried those
        If you've invented your toes
        Well you're surely in luck, you'll get a stunning good show
        So if you come with me
        We'll try to clean the inside out
        This filthy old world is such a beautiful girl
        And you must have a sweet
        I'm sure it's good for your feet

        You're naive if you really do believe
        That the world is so full of sin
        Never look back on the things that you lack
        When you're in
        My mother said that I should stay out of bed
        But I know that I like it in there
        Legs and thighs, hellos and goodbyes
        It's all there

        Oh, medicine gone
        It's coming on strong
        It's coming on and on and on and on
        Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

          Always cheers me up. Great song too.

          THERE IS A MOUNTAIN - Donovan

          The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
          The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          The caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
          Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain.
          Oh Wanita, oh Wanita, oh Wanita, I call your name.
          Oh, the snow will be a blinding sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside.
          The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
          The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
          Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
          Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
          Ah, my-my.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
          First there is a mountain

            The Dramatics&#39; track You&#39;re Foolin&#39; You has the immortal line:&quot;You&#39;re lazy, just like Susan&quot;. Took me about 10 years to find out what a Lazy Susan was...my own theories were about the line were so much better than the mundane reality.

            Also the entire lyrics of Jocko Henderson&#39;s &#39;Rhythm Talk&#39;: &quot;My baby&#39;s a man, can you understand?&quot;

              I always find JB&#39;s line, which I think is from &#39;Mindpower&#39;(?), makes me smile:

              &quot;I might not know karate, but I know ka-razy&quot;

              And funny for totally different reasons:

              &quot;I&#39;m serious as cancer when I tell you rhythm is a dancer&quot;

              &quot;I suppose a rock&#39;s out of the question?&quot;

              &quot;Don&#39;t say you&#39;re easy on me, you&#39;re about as easy as a nuclear war&quot;

                Des&#39;ree gets similarly deep on the classic &#39;Life&#39; - what a lyricist&#33; Incredible..

                Ooh, Yeah
                Oh yeah
                Oh Life
                Oh Life

                I&#39;m afraid of the dark
                Especially when I&#39;m in a park
                When there&#39;s no one else around
                Oh I get the shivers
                I don&#39;t wanna see a ghost
                It&#39;s the sight that I fear most
                I&#39;d rather have a piece of toast
                Watch the evening news

                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life
                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life

                I&#39;m a superstitious girl
                I&#39;m the worst in the world
                Never walk under ladders
                I keep a rabbits&#39; tail
                I&#39;ll take you up on a dare
                Anytime, anywhere
                Name the place, I&#39;ll be there
                Bungee jumping, I don&#39;t care

                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life
                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life

                Life So after all&#39;s said and done
                I know I&#39;m not the only one
                Life indeed can be fun If you really want to
                Sometimes living out your dreams
                Ain&#39;t as easy as it seems
                You wanna fly around the world In a beautiful balloon

                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life
                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life

                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life
                Life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life
                Oh life, oh life..

                  From the Wu:

                  Here I go, deep type flow
                  Jacque Cousteau could never get this low

                  and

                  For cryin out loud my style is wild so book me
                  Not long is how long that this rhyme took me
                  Errr..Hambone?

                    Oh man, I quote these lyrics to anyone willing to listen to my ranting too&#33; least the bit about parks, ghosts and toast anyway. To know the lyrics beyond the first verse is frankly disturbing.

                        a mid-school classic:

                        &#39;always chilling...
                        never illing...
                        in my mouth I got two fillings...
                        whatever...&#39;

                          LIBERTINES - WHAT A WASTER (Any tune with &#39;Two Bob Cunt&#39; in the lyrics, is A OK with me)

                          What a waster, what a fucking waster
                          You pissed it all up the wall
                          Round the corner where they chased her

                          There&#39;s tears coming out from everywhere
                          The city&#39;s hard, the city&#39;s fair
                          Get back inside you&#39;ve got nothing on
                          No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

                          When she wakes up in the morning
                          She writes down all her dreams
                          Reads like the book of revelations
                          Or the Beano or the unabridged ulysses

                          Oh I really wanna know
                          So tell me, where does all the money go
                          where does all the money go
                          Straight, straight up her nose

                          And I never really liked it any way
                          So much preferred it the other way yeah

                          What a divvy what a fucking div
                          Talking like a moron, walking like a spiv
                          I was laying in bed paying my rent
                          Knocking on the door for something

                          That she lent her brother
                          Meanwhile from under the covers she says
                          Save me from tommorow, save me from tommorow
                          Oh no, Oh no not me

                          And I never never liked it any way
                          So much preferred it the other way yeah
                          Never really liked it any way
                          So much preferred it the other way yeah

                          What a waster, what a fucking waster
                          You pissed it all up the wall
                          Round the corner where they chased her

                          There&#39;s tears coming out from everywhere
                          The citys hard the citys fair
                          Get back inside you&#39;ve got nothing on
                          No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

                          What a waster, what a fucking waster
                          You pissed it all up the wall
                          Round the corner where they chased her

                          There&#39;s tears coming out from everywhere
                          The citys hard the citys fair
                          Get back inside you&#39;ve got nothing on

                            For me, it&#39;s always &#39;Look Out, There&#39;s a Monster Coming&#39; by the Bonzo Dog Band which never fails to raise a smile.

                            Have to agree with the Terry Durham as well - &quot;...and there&#39;s a flower in the sky, but... not often&#33;&quot;

                            Caravan &quot;The Dog, The Dog&quot; also&#33; Good choices&#33;

                            Max Bygraves&#39; single for the National Coal Board is still doing it for me, though - &quot;Do It The Safety Way&quot;.... &quot;Common sense saves accidents, do it the safe-ty wayyy&#33;&quot;.
