I do love a good giggle, so I wanted to share some of my favourite funny songs with you. Some are original, some are parodies, but all make me laugh every time I hear them. I hope you find them as funny as I do.
Weird Al is best known for his parodies, but we can all identify with this original ode to an ex-partner.
Funniest line: I’d rather clean all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station … with my tongue/than spend one more minute with you

Does National Brotherhood Week still exist? It did when this song was written more than 40 years ago, and Lehrer had it right – people love to hate each other, always have, always will.
Funniest line: Be nice to people who/are inferior to you

Politically incorrect from head to toe, comedian Leary doesn’t care who he offends. Though most of the people lampooned in this song probable wouldn’t realize he’s talking about THEM.
Funniest line: I drive really slow in the ultra-fast lane/while people behind me are going insane

How they managed to get away with this, I’ll never know. Harry Potter turned into a gangster rapper, and JK didn’t sue?
Funniest line: An evil spell can cause a bad reaction/like a daycare centre run by Michael Jackson

Weird Al is a genius and cannot put a foot wrong. We must all have laughed at those white rappers desperate to be black. The video is pretty funny too.
Funniest line: Only question I ever thought was hard/was do I like Kirk, or do I like Picard

A spoof of the Britney Spears song devoted to geeks, and a kind of companion piece to "White and Nerdy."
Funniest line: I’m picturing a gaming headset in his hair/ and sexy safety goggles on as he builds a robotic office chair

A parody of ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’, which is not exactly a serious song itself.
Funniest line: Al Qaeda found him Christmas morning/face down on that mountain pass/there were hoof marks on his turban/and a broken reindeer antler up his ... Ho ho ho ho ho!

Ah, the tango … that dance of passion, loss and pain, born in the bordellos of Buenos Aires … and now taken to the next logical step.
Funniest line: All of them … but especially Bash in my brains/and make me scream with pain/then kick me once again/and say we’ll never part …

Ever met one of those guys who just really, really fancies himself so much? That spends more time looking in the mirror than most women? Here he is in song form …
Funniest line: Some say I’m egotistical/hell I’m not sure what that means/It must be something to do with the way that I fill out my skintight blue jeans

Weird Al is God, ok? Try ‘Amish Paradise’ and dare to disagree with me.
Funniest line: A local boy kicked me in the butt last week/I just smiled at him, and I turned the other cheek/I really don’t care, in fact I wish him well/Cos I’ll be laughing my head off when he’s burning in hell!
