"Unusual Song Titles"
I'm starting a collection of "unusual" song titles.
Here are a few I have so far:
"THEY CAN KEEP ME IN PRISON,
BUT THEY CAN'T KEEP MY FACE FROM BREAKING OUT."
"MY HAIRDRESSER'S IN JAIL AND MY ROOTS ARE SHOWING."
"GLADYS ISN'T GRATIS ANYMORE."
"WHO THREW THE BENZADRINE IN MRS. MURPHY'S OVALTINE?"
"THEY TRIED TO SELL US EGG FOO YOUNG"
If you have any, and would like to add to the collection,
just email them to me.
It's not necessary to have a song.
Just the title.
I'll send them out occasionally as the collection grows.
And just two days later, on Jan. 26th, Jack wroteth:
HERE ARE THE SONG TITLES YOU SENT IN.
I haven't retyped the titles
or put them in any order.
I just pasted them as they came in.
Many were duplicates, some are old groaners,
and some are very funny.
Thanks to all who contributed.
I've listed a few of the names at the bottom.
Those who's names I missed can be proud to know
that they have been a part of something meaningful.
