If your day is in need of some comic relief, here are some howlers, in no particular order, that will put a smile on your face. And if you aren’t familiar with the more creative artists behind the words and music, they're all worth much deeper listening.

Now, scroll away and let the healthy, healing, hilarious laughing begin!

1. Flight of the Conchords, "Business Time"

This is the funniest song ever written about doing... that thing. Play it for your partner when they're feeling a bit lazy, or when you're stuck in a little bit of a rut.

"Then in the bathroom brushing our teeth

That's all part of the foreplay, I love foreplay

Then you go sort out the recycling

That isn't part of the foreplay,

But it's still very important

Next thing you know we're in the bedroom

You're wearin' that baggy old ugly T-shirt you got from work several years ago

Mmmm, you know the one, baby

With the color stain"

2. Weird Al Yankovic, "Eat It"

Weird Al is probably the number one comedy "singer/songwriter" today. Would Michael Jackson have laughed at this parody? Who cares! It’s funny.

"Get yourself an egg and beat it

Have some more chicken

Have some more pie

It doesn’t matter if it’s boiled or fried

Just eat it"

3. Kellie Pickler, "Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind"

If you've ever wanted a look inside the mail mind, look no further than this song by American Idol contestant, Kellie Pickler. She perfectly sums up what you'll never find a guy thinking about.

"Here lips are too red

Her skirt is too tight

Her legs are too long

And her heels are too high

Boy, she looks like the marryin' kind

Things that never cross a man's mind"

4. Jimmy Fallon, "Road Rage"

Jimmy Fallon, despite laughing in every Saturday Night Live skit he ever appeared in, has a few musical comedy albums out there. Give it a try, and laugh... without worrying about breaking.

"My blood is boiling

Your car's annoying

I'm gonna get ya

I'm gonna get ya

Don't flash your high beams at me

You wouldn't like it when I'm angry, you see

I got the Road Rage!"

5. Sandra Boynton, "Bolero Completely Unraveled"

Sandra Boynton is a children's author and illustrator. And though this song has no words, this re-imagining of the movie theme from 10 aptly demonstrates that it doesn't matter.

6. Steve Martin, "Ramblin' Man"

"King Tut" was great, but "Ramblin’ Man" is Steve at his musical-genius comedic best. What's not to love about Martin with a banjo?

"He's a rambling' guy, oh no

Okay, now the men

Ramblin' ramblin' ramblin'

This half of the room

Okay, now this half

This two-fifths of the room

Now this three-fifths

Ok, two-sevenths

Five-sevenths

Ok, in Chinese now"

7. Tom Lehrer, "Send the Marines"

The godfather of musical comedy gave us this timeless hit, along with its closely-related cousin: "It Makes a Fellow Proud to Be a Soldier."

"We'll send them all we've got,

John Wayne and Randolph Scott

Remember those exciting fighting scenes?

To the shores of Tripoli

But not to Mississippoli

What do we do?

We send the Marines!"

8. Lil Dicky, "Ex-Boyfriend"

When the girl you're dating brings up her ex, you probably expect her to have upgraded to you. But sometimes, that's not the case. Heck, you may fall in love with him, too.

"And I ain't usually the one to be the jealous type

But as I'm lookin' at this dude, I can't believe my eyes

'Cause he's the best lookin' guy that I've seen in my whole life

He's got the thickest head of hair, chiseled jaw, an egregious bod

Man, this the closest thing I've seen to a Grecian god"

9. Garfunkel and Oates, "The Loophole"

Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates) give us this hilarious song about the "loophole" of premarital sex. Listen to this song, and you'll figure out what that means.

"I do whatever The Bible tells me to

Except for the parts that I choose to ignore

Because they're unrealistic and inconvenient

But the rest I live by for sure

So let's not talk about how the Good Book bans shellfish,

Polyester and divorce

And how it condones slavery and killing gays

Because those parts don't count, of course"

10. Mr. Oizo, "Bruce Willis is Dead"

If you've never watch The Sixth Sense, this song includes serious spoilers. And it's repeated over and over again.

"Bruce Willis is dead

Bruce Willis is dead

Bruce Willis is dead

Bruce Willis is dead"

11. Johnny Cash, "A Boy Named Sue"

Anyone with a not-so-savory name can probably relate to this song. Hey, at least there are options to change your name.

"Well my daddy left home when I was three

And he didn't leave much to Ma and me

Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze

Now, I don't blame him 'cause he run and hid

But the meanest thing that he ever did

Was before he left, he went and named me 'Sue'"

12. Beck, "Satan Gave Me a Taco"

Don't think too hard about this song! It's a whacky tale that gets more bizarre as it goes on. And ends with Beck joining a band and, surprisingly, opening a taco stand.

"Satan gave me a taco and it made me really sick

The chicken was all raw and the grease was mighty thick

The rice was all rancid and the beans were so hard

I was gettin' kinda dizzy eatin' all the lard

There was aphids on the lettuce an' I ate every one

An' after I was done the salsa melted off my tongue

Pieces of tortilla got stuck in my throat

An' the stains on my clothes burned a hole through my coat"

13. The Offspring, "Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)"

This song calls out wannabes and posers trying to be someone they aren't. It's catchy, funny, and the music video is great, too.

"So don't debate, a player straight

You know he really doesn't get it anyway

Gotta play the field, and keep it real

For you no way, for you no way

So if you don't rate, just overcompensate

At least that you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake

The world needs wannabes, ah

Hey, hey, do that brand-new thing!"

14. Stephen Lynch, "Lullaby (The Divorce Song)"

Singer and comedian Stephen Lynch starts out his songs on a pretty normal note, and it quickly devolves into something weird and funny. And this song is no exception.

"Please don't cry

I swear I'll try

To be here by your side

Right after daddy gets home from the bar

Visits his bookee

And steals a new car

He'll drive to the strip club

And if daddy plays his cards right

He'll bring home your new mommy tonight"

15. Jimmy Fallon, "Idiot Boyfriend"

Comedian Jimmy Fallon gives us another hit with this song about, literally, being an idiot boyfriend. We can all relate, I'm sure.

"I know what you want, and I know what you need

But I'm gon' screw it up, yeah

Cause I'm an idiot, and I'm your boyfriend, yes I am

An' I'm gon' take you out, and leave my wallet home

Then I'll use your cell phone, baby

Long distance, and I'm your boyfriend"

16. The Lonely Island, "Jack Sparrow"

What happens when you combine Michael Bolton, the boys of the Lonely Island, and Bolton's obsession with Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean? This masterpiece, of course.

"Three pound in my waist, shank in my sock

You either get cut, get stuffed or get shot

This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow

Pirate so brave on the seven seas (What?)

A mystical quest to the isle of Tortuga

Raven locks sway on the ocean breeze

Yeah that was kinda weird, but we're back in the club

Buying up the bar so the groupies show us love"

17. Flight of the Conchords, "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros"

Dubbed a gangster/folk song, you'll be scratching your head trying to keep up with how strange this bop is.

"They call me the Hiphopopotamus

My lyrics are bottomless

Sometimes our rhymes are polite

Like, thank you for the dinner Ms. Right

That was very delicious, goodnight

Sometimes they are obscene"

18. Frank Zappa, "Bobby Brown Goes Down"

Though a bit outdated in its message, this song is about a rich misogynist named Bobby Brown. And, well... the song ends with him questioning his sexuality.

"Eventually me 'n' a friend

Sorta drifted along into S&M

I can take about an hour on the tower of power

'Long as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the American Dream

With a spindle up my butt till it makes me scream"

19. The Mountain Goats, "Cubs in Five"

Sports fans can probably relate to this fun song about the basic impossibility of certain teams succeeding. But, if they somehow do, it's all you need to love your partner again.

"And the Chicago Cubs will beat every team in the league

And the Tampa Bay Bucs will take it all the way to the top

And I will love you again

I will love you like I used to

I will love you again

I will love you like I used to"

20. The Smiths, "Frankly Mr. Shankly"

Anyone who hates their job will get a kick out of this tune. Because if you can imagine yourself writing a letter of distain to your employer, this hits the nail on the head.

"Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I've held

It pays my way and it corrodes my soul

Oh, I didn't realise that you wrote poetry

I didn't realize you wrote such bloody awful poetry, Mr. Shankly"

21. Daveyboyz, "Heavy Metal Farmer"

What are two unlikely things? A farmer who loves heavy metal. And well, the song kind of speaks for itself.

"Moo, moo!

Cow go moo, when they poo,

Tractor,

I milk my cows.

Moo!

Tractor!

I am a farmer, moo!

Tractor!"

22. Doja Cat, "Mooo!"

Before going mainstream, Doja Cat's "Mooo!" became a viral sensation after her attempt to make her video in a meme. Who doesn't love dressing up in a cow costume and mooing, right?

"And they feed me real good, it's a honor (it's a honor)

Philly cheesesteak all in that order (get that order)

Chili cheese fries as a starter (as a starter)

Got the steroids keeping me stronger (strong)

B****, I'm a cow

B****, I'm a cow

I'm not a cat

I don't say meow"

23. Rebecca Black, "Friday"

Remember laughing hysterically at this awful song? Well, turns out it was so bad that it's actually good. Black instantly became a viral sensation, because that music video... good lord. Fun, fun, fun, fun...

"Kickin' in the front seat

Sittin' in the back seat

Gotta make my mind up

Which seat can I take?

It's Friday, Friday

Gotta get down on Friday

Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend"

24. Las Ketchup, "The Ketchup Song"

The best part of this song is that the chorus translates into lyrics from "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang. It's also ridiculously catchy and is a true bop.

"And he's the man alli en la disco, playin' sexy, feelin' hotter

He's the king bailando el ritmo ragatanga

And the DJ that he knows well

On the spot always around twelve

Plays the mix that Diego mezcla con la salsa

Y la baila and he dances y la canta"

25. Tenacious D, "Low Hangin' Fruit"

When you're a man who can't quite get a girl, you might just go for the "low hanging fruit." For Tenacious D, that means getting with an "easy" girl.

"Low hangin' fruit

She wears a pink parachute

She's got the fly tattoo and the honky tonky Daisy Dukes

We love the low hanging fruit.

Because the high class is not gonna f*** me

But that low class fruit is sweet chunky monkey"

26. The Presidents of the United States of America, "Peaches"

In true POTUSA fashion, it's a song about nothing. Like, literally, the song is about eating peaches.

"Peaches come from a can,

They were put there by a man

In a factory downtown

If I had my little way,

I'd eat peaches every day

Sun-soakin' bulges in the shade"

27. Amy Winehouse, "F*** Me Pumps"

For places like Las Vegas, women will go out the bars with the idea that they'll pick up a rich man. But, in the end, it's the same cycle: they get dumped and are alone again. So, dust off your pumps and get back out there again, right?

"Without girls like you there’s no night life

All those men just go home to their wives

Don’t be mad at me

Cause you'rw pushing 30

And your old tricks no longer work

You should have known from the jump

That you always get dumped

So dust off your f*** me pumps"

28. “Oh My God I Think I Like You” from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Anyone who has ever been in a friends with benefits situation can totally relate. It's just about physical intimacy... until you start developing a crush.

"But as I'm beggin' for more

Writhing around on the floor

I feel somethin' deep inside I never felt before...

Oh my god, I think I like you

Oh my god, I think I like you"

29. The Lonely Island, "Threw it on the Ground"

What do you do when you don't want to be part of "the system"? You throw things on the ground, of course. Literally.

"Some poser hands me cake at a birthday party

Whatcha want me to do with this? Eat it?

Happy birthday to the ground!

I threw the rest of the cake, too!

Welcome to the real word, jack***!

So many things to throw on the ground

Like this, and this, and that, and even this

I'm an adult!"

30. Aqua, "Barbie Girl"

Everyone in the world knows this song and how utterly ridiculous it is. Still, it's incredibly catchy... and definitely not appropriate for kids.

"I'm a Barbie girl in a Barbie world

Life in plastic, it's fantastic

You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere

Imagination, life is your creation

Come on, Barbie, let's go party (ah ah ah yeah)

Come on, Barbie, let's go party (ooh oh, ooh oh)"

31. Weird Al Yankovic, "Amish Paradise"

A spoof on Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise," Weird Al doesn't disappoint with this song. Instead of a song about the struggles of being a gangsta, it's the life of an Amish man.

"We been spending most our lives

Living in an Amish paradise

I've churned butter once or twice

Living in an Amish paradise

It's hard work and sacrifice

Living in an Amish paradise

We sell quilts at a discount price

Living in an Amish paradise"

32. Monty Python, "Lumberjack Song"

Monty Python was way ahead of its time, and this song is proof of that. Though it's from the 1970s, you'll still get a nice hearty laugh out of it.

"I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK

I sleep all night and I work all day

He's a lumberjack and he's OK

He sleeps all night and he works all day

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch

I go to the lavatory

On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea"

33. LCD Soundsystem, "Losing My Edge"

Back in the day, you probably thought you were pretty cool. Now, the kids are making you lose your edge. And guess what? Hey, they're really nice kids!

"I used to work in the record store

I had everything before anyone

I was there in the Paradise Garage DJ booth with Larry Levan

I was there in Jamaica during the great sound clashes

I woke up naked on the beach in Ibiza in 1988

But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent

And they're actually really, really nice"

34. Jens Lekman, "The Cold Swedish Winter"

When you're cold and it's snowing outside, of course you want to be wrapping up in warm arms. Well, should you freeze over, when people dig you up centuries later, at least they'll find you nice and cozy.

"The cold Swedish winter

Is right outside

And I just want somebody

To hold me through the night

In two thousand years

This place will be covered by ice

And the people who will dig us up

Will be in for a big surprise"

35. The Presidents of the United States of America, "Kitty"

Another song from this group where the lyrics are literally about the title! What happens when kitty gets too much attention? Beware of those claws.

"He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his head

He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his rain-soaked hide

He's circlin' around my ankle

He's circlin' around my ankle

He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his hide

Hey, kitty, won't you come inside

Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it"

36. Stephen Lynch, "Talk to Me"

No parent wants to walk into their kid's room and catch them doing bad things. Unfortunately, it happens, and your dad will never look at you the same way again.

"Well it seems last night you caught me spanking it

No use denying it, I was really cranking it

Now dry your eyes, don't be so sad

But I wouldn't use those tissues, they've already been

Just because it was your bed it's not that

Oh daddy, daddy, please forgive me, and talk to me, dad"

37. Peaches, "Mommy Complex"

Well, the lyrics for this one speak for themselves. Because if you've got mommy issues, all it takes is one woman to change you, and not in a good way.

"Qualified to baptize you'll be blessed

No guilt when you takin' out your Sunday best

Oh yes, just one request

If you bring flowers, I like baby's breath

Hush now baby, don't you stress

I'm gonna fill you mommy complex"

38. The Mighty Boosh, "I Did a S*** on Your Mum"

As grotesque as this song is, it's pretty hilarious and makes for a great insult for your friends when they're bugging you. Taking "your mama" jokes to a new level right here.

"I did a s*** on your mom

I did a s*** on your mom

I did a s*** on your mom

And she rather liked it"

39. Bo Burnham, "Country Song"

We're familiar with what country singers usually gripe about: losing your woman, your truck, and the great outdoors. Bo Burnham sings this song as someone who doesn't like any of those things.

"I walk and talk like a field hand

But the boots I'm wearing cost three grand

I write songs about riding tractors

From the comfort of a private jet

I could sing in Mandarin

You'd still know I'm pandering

Huntin' deer and chasing trout

A Bud Light with the logo facing out

Hear that subtle mandolin

That's textbook panderin'

I own a private ranch that I rarely use

I don't like dirt"

40. Awkwafina, "My Vag"

This is the female counterpart to Mickey Avalon's song, "My D***." Funny lady Awkwafina shows us she's a great actor and rapper.

"It's time that we let the world know

B***, ya vag look like Janet Reno

Awkwafina's a genius

And her vagina is 50 times better than a penis"

41. Tenacious D, "Tribute"

This song is a tale about Jack Black and Kyle Gass running into a demon and playing "The Best Song in the World." It's catchy, funny, and will be stuck in your head all day.

Fun fact: Dave Grohl plays the demon in the music video!

"All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon.

In the middle of the road.

And he said, 'Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul'

Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other

And we each said, 'Okay'

And we played the first thing that came to our heads

Just so happened to be

The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World"

42. Frank Zappa, "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow"

It's a tale we can all relate to, and a fair warning for kids who don't seem to want to listen. No, it's not a snow cone, Jimmy.

"And the northern lights commenced to glow

And she said, with a tear in her eye

Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow

Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow"

43. Sarah Silverman, "I'm F***ing Matt Damon"

While she was still dating comedian Jimmy Kimmel, Silverman and Damon teamed up to make this hilarious music video and song. Really, the laughs are endless.

"Hey Jim, don't take it bad

Remember all the good times we had

Like the time we went fishing

And we caught a bunch of fish

Then you puked in the bucket

Of the fish that we caught"

44. Elmo & Patsy, "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"

A classic Christmas song, gather your family 'round the tree and sing this song together. Hopefully the kids know that it's all in fun!

"At the scene of the attack

She had hoof-prints on her forehead

And incriminating Claus marks on her back

Grandma got run over by a reindeer

Walking home from our house Christmas eve

You can say there's no such thing as Santa

But as for me and grandpa we believe"

45. LFO, "Summer Girls"

Add this to your list of Catchy Songs with the Worst Lyrics Ever. If you need a good laugh, pay close attention to the awful rhymes and meaningless words on this bop.

"Left one day and never came back

Stayed all summer, then went back home

Macaulay Culkin was in Home Alone

Fell deep in love, but now we ain't speakin'

Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton

When I met you, I said my name is Rich

You look like a girl from Abercrombie & Fitch"

46. Right Said Fred, "I'm Too Sexy"

A great song to blast when you're really feeling yourself, it's kind of reminiscent of Zoolander. You're a model, and you're too sexy for pretty much everything.

"I'm too sexy for my shirt

Too sexy for my shirt

So sexy it hurts

And I'm too sexy for Milan

Too sexy for Milan

New York, and Japan

I'm too sexy for your party

Too sexy for your party

No way I'm disco dancing"

47. The Bloodhound Gang, "The Bad Touch"

Another fun song about doing the dirty, this song has quite a crazy amount of innuendos. Hopefully, you can keep up.

"You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals

So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel

(Do it again now)"

48. Howdytoons, "Everybody Farts"

Much like the book, Everybody Poops, this song is about the next best thing. You can't avoid it, so just embrace your gas!

"Dogs, they fart

Cats, they fart

Cows that eat the grass, they fart

Zebras fart

Camels fart

As termites eat your house they fart

Farting is so natural it's as healthy as can be

If you smell one stinking, don't you look at me"

49. Rodney Carrington, "Dear Penis"

Another really silly song, you'll find yourself singing along to the words. Don't you just love when the worlds of comedy and country come together?

"Dear penis, I don't think I like you anymore

You used to watch me shave

Now all you do is stare at the floor

Oh, dear penis, I don't like you anymore

Used to be you and me

A paper towel and a dirty magazine

That's all we needed to get by

Now It seems things have changed

I think that you're the one to blame"

50. Stephen Lynch, "3 Balloons"

Another facetious song from Stephen Lynch, the ending of this one has quite a twist! Don't be fooled that it starts out a bit slow.

"Well, I hope the Law Enforcement Agents can't tell from my face

I've got three balloons of coke in an uncomfortable place

I'm sweating and I'm nervous and I need a little air

Because with four balloons of heroin

It's getting crowded up in there

Crowded up in there"
