Song lyrics that make you laugh

Today's entry:  They Might Be Giants "Birdhouse in Your Soul"

"There's a picture opposite me
Of my primitive ancestry
Which stood on rocky shores and
Kept the beaches shipwreck free
Though I respect that a lot
I'd be fired if that were my job
After killing Jason off and
Countless screaming Argonauts"

The line about "countless screaming Argonauts" just cracks me up every time I hear it.  Oh, for the days when popular music actually made references that you had to be a little intelligent to understand, like The Police referencing "that book by Nabokov."

Update: I should probably let you listen to the song, shouldn't I?


  1. It was okay but didn't really turn me on. Guess you knew I'd say that. Video's just aren't my cup of tea. Most of them don't make any sense to me. Thanks for puttin it on.
