Road rage and a stop at the dentist make Blake Shelton yearn for blue skies and a margarita. The Jimmie Buffett sentiment and radio-safe wordplay make this one of the singer's funniest songs.

Funny Song Lyric: "He stuck that needle down deep in my gum / And he started drillin' before I was numb / Some beach"

Toby Keith's "bus songs" were written on the road and never intended to be recorded. This one, a live track from Shock'n Y'all, is a cautionary tale of what happens when you step on the Red Headed Stranger's tour bus—but are unprepared for the high quality of his green.

Funny Song Lyric: "Don't knock it til' you tried it, well I tried it my friend / I'll never smoke weed with Willie again"

Marriage is built on compromise. Even though Conway's sub-par genes are responsible for Loretta's demon offspring, she still loves him.

Funny Song Lyric: "You're the reason our kids are ugly, little darlin' / Oh but looks ain't everything / And money ain't everything / And I love you just the same"

The Cherry Bombs - It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night...

Romantic friction results in heated humor on this song whose complete title we've opted to omit (we're a family publication). What we can say is that Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell trade vocals, and that this is easily the best song from the short-lived supergroup.

Funny Song Lyric: "I've learned she can resist me by the way she always disses me /
And comes to bed at night, with that cold cream on"

An argument between a Jewish hippie and a drunk hillbilly descends into ethnic slurs in this irreverent tune from Kinky Friedman. As usual, the singer deals out oddball humor to confront serious topics like racism.

Funny Song Lyric: "No, they ain't makin' Jews like Jesus anymore / They don't turn the other cheek the way they done before"

John Prine and Iris DeMent - In Spite of Ourselves

A husband and wife fight like cats and dogs, but that doesn't diminish the strength of their love. Beneath the thick layer of sarcasm, there's a big heart pumping away.

Funny Song Lyric: "She thinks all my jokes are corny, convict movies make her horny / She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs / Swears like a sailor when she shaves her legs"

A man confronts the terms of his girlfriend's ultimatum: It's either his fishing or their relationship. She gets her answer. But it probably wasn't the one she was expecting.

Funny Song Lyric: "Well I love her, but I love to fish / I spend all day out on this lake / And hell is all I catch"

Billy Currington wishes his sweetheart could act more like, you know, his friendly canine companion. A simple request, right?

Funny Song Lyric: "I want you to love me like my dog does baby / When I come home, I want you to just go crazy / He never looks at me like he might hate me"

"A Boy Named Sue" was written by songwriter Shel Silverstein, who also penned the children's classic A Light in the Attic. Johnny Cash debuted it on his Live in San Quentin record, and it became one of his most enduring and endearingly weird songs.

Funny Song Lyric: "Some gal would giggle and I'd get red / And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head / I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named Sue"
