Thanks for the response, VEGANGELICA. If you feel inclined, you can check out the words to the AS song, though you may not be much the wiser:-

Spoiler for "Ullo John" Lyrics:
ALEXIE SAYLE
Ullo John Gotta New Motor Lyrics

Ullo-Ullo-Ullo-Ullo
Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
Your goat's made a mess on the carpet (x2)
He lost his bottle in Barnsley (x2)
He's an Avon Representative (x2)


Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
They put me in a special hospital (x2)
Is there life on Mars? (x2)
Is there life in Peckham? (x2)
What's that switch over there for? (x2)
Ah ah ah ah ow... ah ah ah ah ow


Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
He can't half play the bongos (x2)
He's got a record by Billy Joel (x2)
Them locks are easy (x2)
Here's my calling card:*headbutt* ! (x2)
That's a nice piece of balsa (x2)
You can make a model out of that (x2)
He stuck his head in a dustbin (x2)
And then ran through the launderette (x2)
Ullo John! Gotta new motor?

'Ere John do you like the suit here, eh eh it's a lovely suit innit?
'Ere wanna brown ale? (x2)
Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
Mine's a light and bitter (x2)

Ullo John! Gotta new mot-AH ... AH ... AH
He works on the Thames Barrier (x2)
I keep tropical fish (x2)
In me underpants (x2)

Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
He walks around with a hat on (x2)

(Spoken) Oh yeah our Rodney yeah, he's the intelligent one
He's in the police force
Very bright he is
Been to Miami? Lovely... Miami
Package tour in Miami
You can't get a light and bitter
You can't get a light and bitter in Miami though
You can get one in Bermondsey though!
That's a nice sound as well, Bermondsey
You can get a light and bitter, and it sounds nice
Light and bitter, that sounds nice, I'd like a light and bitter
Oh cheers thanks a lot
Oh nice one yeah, alright
What you having? What you having eh?
Pina Colada?
Lovely - here. You must be sophisticated

Ullo John! Gotta new motor?
Your goat's made a mess of the carpet (x2)
Ullo John! Gotta new motor? (x5)

(Spoken) Here that's a nice three piece suite, yeah
I like your music centre
Here, got any Demis Roussos?
Oo I like him, Barry Manilow,
I think he's terrific
Oh I love him, I love Barry Manilow,
I go all weak, when I hear Barry Manilow I go all weak

Yes, "creepily chipper" is a good description of Rebecca Black´s song, with it´s rather desperate rallying cry to have fun. After posting "Ullo John", I shouldn´t really criticize lyrics, but Rebecca Black´s lines explaining the sequential order of the days of the week were so bad that they made me laugh! What Matt Mulholland does with such unpromising material is very clever indeed, though I´m not sure that I´d call it a comedy song. I guess, like the recorder by candlelight song, the humour is quite subtle.

And here´s a song with very straightforward humour, making jokes about a trip to Blackpool. ( Blackpool was a well-known fairground/resort of a kind that was popular in the fifties - the equivalent, perhaps, of Coney Island in North America.)

A belated thank you, Lisnaholic, for the "Ullo John" lyrics!

In "Day Trip to Blackpool," I especially like the part about how they drove off in the car afterwards, having forgotten the mode of transportation that they used to get there. "Recycling" beer, too, was very environmentalist.

Today my fiancé and I heard for the first time a song that I feel is quite clever and amusing, reminding me of a Minnesotan potluck from hell.

It also makes me remember when I was 12 in a middle school cooking class and was assigned "tuna fish jello" as a dish I had to learn to make. :/

"Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise" - by William Bolcom
sung by his wife, Joan Morris

Wikipedia says the song is based on William Bolcom's experiences of eating weird, unappetizing foods when, as a child, he played the piano for women's clubs.

Here's another song that amuses me:

Flight of the Conchords - "Hurt Feelings"
I especially like it when they say, "We're vincible," and get indignant after being advised to try a women's wetsuit.

^Kind of surprised that Flight of the Conchords wasn't mentioned earlier. I like this one, I think it'd make a great radio hit.

I give you Judge Dread....yes the white English guy that sings dirty reggae songs. What?



Some people may be more familiar with the not as good version done by Arrogant Worms known as the Assumption song. I caught some 16 year old singing the Arrogant Worms version I stopped them and said "NO!....that's the wrong words!" and sang them the correct version!!....I was 21 at the time.

There is a whole series of his corruption in rhymes, such as Big six onwards is mostly him corrupting nursery rhymes....in high school someone up the back of the bus was going "I was told this dirty song! lemme show you!" and got it on their phone (probably a Nokia it was 2004 odds) then started to read, I then just overtook them and sang it of by heart.

Oh yeaaah.....I got into trouble in high school due to Judge Dread. So...when for art your teacher asks you to draw on this A3 drawing paper an album cover for your most favourite music artist or band. I was 14 and listening to a lot of Judge Dread...and so I decided to draw Big Six. With such lyrics as "Little Miss Muffet sat on her Tuffet knickers all tatter and torn, it wasn't a spider who sad down beside her, it was little boy blue with the horn!" and "Where is little Bo peep? to tend to her sheep? Under the hay stack with little boy blue!"

So I drew some of that, next day I get told another art teacher wants to see me, so I went up and saw her she was fine and nice then said "wait for me in there...NOOOW." the NOOOOW put it into my head this is not going be good.

She had my art piece barley started and then she flipped it over....it was a giant coloured in A3 marijuana/weed/hash leaf. I did not draw that, however as judge dread talks about "smoking the ganja!" I couldn't remember what it looked like so asked my weed smoking friend to draw me a small one....he drew a massive one and then started colouring it and finished it...WHY MY PIECE was unfinished.

so she gave me a grilling about the weed picture...and not the fact I drew legs sticking out out of a "ganja" tree with underwear over it and sheep underneath it, she seemed to miss that bit.

Just imagine a drawing of THIS song.


Which brings me to Judge Dread VS Judge Dredd the law officer from Mega city! THE MAN WHO IS THE LAW!! brought to you by Red Dwarf.....it will make sense...a bit.

So Red Dwarf ALSO had their own Comedy song which was in an episode and at the time made a bit of a splash and they made it into an official buy able single, made a proper music video and everything, as well as a sort of weird special about it.

Here skip to 8:18 and WITNESS THE BATTLE!


The reason in why we got to the epic battle!

Also....how can you ever forget this Red Dwarf moment...easy if you never saw it before.

MC Randumb & Jewish Dave - comedy murder rap
D-Mize & Dee. Rockz - comedy gangsta rap
Tha Polar Bear MC's - comedy gangsta rap too
FA-COCK-TA - comedy jewish rap

:-) hahaha
