Top 10 Funny Songs for Seniors
<![CDATA[Happy April! With April Fool's Day starting the month, and the light, goofy feeling that comes with springtime, I can think of no better way to celebrate this new season than by singing some equally ridiculous songs. The goofy songs I list below are some of my favorites to share with music therapy clients when it's time to lighten the mood. 10. Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off – you say “to-MAY-to,” and I say “to-MAH-to.” 9. A Boy Named Sue – you can’t beat Johnny Cash’s rendition of this family drama 8. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – singing it is fun; trying to spell it – even better! 7. Too Fat Polka – a ridiculous reason to refuse to dance 6. New Horizons in Music Appreciation – for the classical music lovers, a play-by-play commentary on Beethoven’s 5th Symphony by Peter Schikele 5. If You’ve Got The Money, I’ve Got The Time – at least the singer is being honest. 4. Little Brown Jug – each verse is funnier than the last 3. Your Feets Too Big – Fats Waller’s classic song 2. It’s Hard To Be Humble – “…when you’re perfect in every way” 1. Mairzy Doats – I love this one, for the silly lyrics and the reactions it often brings from my older adult clients. What are some of your favorite goofy songs for seniors?]]>
Just found a “new” one today about Veronica and her harmonica !
Ooh! I’ll have to look for that one.
Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah; Boom Boom Ain’t it Great to be Crazy!!

“Abba Dabba Honeymoon”
“There Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens”

“I Went To The Animal Fair”
“Bushel & A Peck”
“Countin’ Flowers On The Wall”
Those are all great, Peggy! I bet you have a silly songs playlist, don’t you? 😉
I love the list you created, Rachelle. The others added in comments are great, too.I’ll add: “Ma, He’s Making Eyes At Me”. It is humor month so I challenge everyone to keep the laughter going.
That’s a great song, too – one of my new favorites. We’ll be laughing all month!
These are great fun (pardon the pun)! I love playslists that can go on forever. Some more I didn’t see mentioned yet:
“What Did Deleware?”
“(Would you like to) Swing on a Star”
“Yes, We Have No Bananas”
“Pistol Packin’ Mama”
