What's the silliest/craziest song you've ever heard?

Mine has to be "Foul Owl on the Prowl" from the movie, "In the Heat of the Night." It's available on YouTube but I haven't mastered the "embed" thing.

Great movie, btw.

"They call me MISTAH TIBBS."

The "Dry Sheets, Ice Cream, Jellybeans" song from The Sarah Silverman Program. The audio is on YouTube but it's so much funnier if you see the scene where she's dancing in the convenience store with the little kid who wets her bed.

Dick in a Box, Mother Lover, I'm on a Boat

I'm on a boat, mother****er, on a boat!!!

That song *is* fabulously silly;  you MUST watch the video, though for full effect!

In a very different vein, I also like Trout Fishing In America's tongue-twisting 'Proper Cup of Coffee', which is a sort of history of the world told from the perspective of that all-important task: finding a good cup of joe.

(doubletime tempo)
"All I want is a proper cup of coffee made in a proper copper coffee pot.
I may be off my dot but I want a proper coffee in a proper coffee pot.
Iron coffee pots and tin copper pots, they are no use to me:
If I can't have a proper cup of coffee in a proper copper coffee pot
I'll have a cup of tea!"
etc.

If you have kids, and like silliness, def'ly seek out Trout Fishing! They are wonderfully, terribly, lyrically, intelligently silly. The world needs more of that, it seems to me!

"The Love Song" by Alice In Chains. It's the last, unlisted track on their 'Sap' EP. It's just a bunch of studio silliness... which is odd from a darker band.

I second the boat song. It's ridiculous. My bf has to go on research cruises to collect foraminifera samples, and they play this song when they board the ship. Dorks.

Studio silliness is so much fun! Like "I'm Gonna Buy Me a Dog" from the Monkees.

There's a Wednesday 13 song called "Bad Things" and it's so understated and simplistic. It makes me laugh every time. It's a little violent, but I'm sorry, it's funny. Here are some highlights:

You're a waste of air and a waste of space
I want sharp objects to fly into your face

I'd celebrate at your wake, I'd bake myself a cake
'Cause you're my favorite person that I love to hate

I want bad things to happen to you
I want very bad things to happen to you

It's ridiculous. And I love it. Wednesday 13 has many more hilarious lyrics.

Electric Six - Gay Bar
This song is awesome, and the video combined with the song is hilarious!
eta: Not sure why they censored the words "nuclear war" and not all the stuff about sex and gay bars...

System of a Down, Chik'n Stu:

Walked in to the refridgerator
Door was closed
Lights were out
Butter's getting hard

What a splendid pie!
Pizza pizza pie!
Every minute, every second, buy buy buy buy buy!

Pepperoni, and green peppers, mushrooms, olives, chives!

Need therapy, therapy,
advertising causes me
therapy, therapy...

Google a song called The Ketchup Song by a silly girl band from Spain, circa 2002. The words don't make any sense and it's got a silly dance routine, but it gets stuck in your head like nobody's business!

Oh. don't. start. Ketchup was the name of the band. They had that one hit, called "Aserejé" in Spanish. If you listen, it's made up "English", making fun of kids who can't speak it trying to sing along to songs they don't understand.
That's the song that made me start the "what song is stuck in  your head today" thread, though when I started it I had another song in mind.
Ohhhh godddd...it's back.... :-\

For sure Dick in a Box and Jizz in my Pants are some of the funniest songs around!!!  I heard another really silly song a year or so ago called Poop Goes in the Potty that was funny for potty training a little kid.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZWoxVr05mk

Well, many of the songs out nowadays are hilarious...but there's a song from my youth that still cracks me up - "Buttermilk Biscuits" by Sir Mix-a-lot

There's also a song by (I think) Blink 182..something about rubbing your d*ck in broken glass?! I haven't heard it in over a year but when I first heard it, I was speechless. The person I was with couldn't stop laughing at the song and my reaction. lol!

anything tenacious d or sara silverman.

my best friend always has some great jam sessions on her porch and i have never heard one serious song come out of her.  one time i walked onto her porch to hear this home made jingle, which we still find ourselves singing to this day:

"it's so simple, it's so much fun, a regular tampon shootin' out of a gun,
it's so easy, all you have to do: ready, aim, fire TAMPOON!"

And let us not forget "MacArthur Park." Not only does it require the range of a grand-opera tenor to pull it of (which almost none of the people who do covers of it have), the words are seriously disconnected.
I mean, "Someone left the cake out in the rain, and I don't think that I can take it, cuz it took so long to bake it, and I'll never have that recipe again?"

And all that nonsense about "sweet green icing flowing down." High, much?
;D ::)
