Did I Shave My Legs for This?

Undernews posts a great list of favourite Country and Western song titles:

Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Posts Of Life

Get Your Biscuits In The Oven, And Your Buns In The Bed

Happiness is Lubbock in a Rear View Mirror

I Don’t Care if it Rains or Freezes ‘Long as I Have My Plastic Jesus

I’d Rather Pass a Kidney Stone than Another Night With You

If I’d Killed You When I Wanted To, I’d be Out of Jail By Now

If The Phone Doesn’t Ring, It’s Me

And these are just the subtle ones . . .

    Pretty much my all time favourite from a huge collection of these titles is ‘How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away?’

    jb says: Good one, Dick. I always had a penchant for You’re Right, I’m Left, She’s Gone.

    Those are wonderful! I can’t believe I’ve never heard those before, I grew up in a Country Music town. The silliest one’s I can remember are “A boy named Sue” and “You can’t roller skate in a Buffalo herd”.

    jb says: Hi Jenny. I truly believe that if I ever find myself in the midst of a Buffalo herd, I won’t be thinking about roller skating.

    I love country music, but I honestly haven’t heard these songs. And I will definitely not attempt to listen to songs with blasphemous titles such as these.

    jb says: Did I see a smile behind that Stetson?
