Jokes:

*******ACTUAL HAPPENING****** I was driving home in my car and I had the radio on. It was playing "Give A Little Bit". After the song was finished the DJ announced that the previous song was by Supertramp, and he joked that "Supertramp" was the name the band took for themselves "after they met your sister!". Man, did I laugh my butt off.

Band Name Origins:

  • The band got it's name from the first drummer by the name of Richard Palmer. Palmer wrote all the bands lyrics at the time and was a literature graduate or student at least. The name comes from a book by W.H. Davies. The book being titled "The Autobiography of a Supertramp". There was an online version of it if anyone cares to give it a read. Submitted by: Tony Trampfan
  • Unemployed guitarist Roger Hodgson was busking in the underground (subway)in London in the late sixties when a man approached him. An unkempt Hodgson asked if if he liked the music, to which the man replied, "Super, Tramp!" (Tramp is the British word for a "bum" or "hobo") Submitted by: Richard Braithwaite

Story about this misheard lyric by: Glenn Littleboy

When i was about 6 years old I always thought that that was he was singing about. Basically a spider that had been knocked down from something such as a tree branch by the rain and he needed to get back up again. Im now 39 and it still sounds like he says spider instead of fighter.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Gone Hollywood"
The Funny Lyrics:
I'm tired of talking on the telephone
Why They're Funny:
Why would people be tired from calling friends on the phone? Furthermore, at the time this song was made, it was the typical way to communicate with people!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Oh Darling"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna catch you, lady
Why They're Repetitive:
It sounds extremely repetitive. It's always repetition.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Logical Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But at night, when all the world's asleep...
Why They're Nonsensical:
When it's night in one part of the world (and people there are asleep), it would be daytime in another part of the world (and people there would be awake). So theoretically, there is no such time for ALL the world to be asleep.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Breakfast in America"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I'm a loser, oh what a joker...
Why They're Misrhymed:
Everything else in the song rhymes just fine, but that one line just doesn't! It kind of bugs me.
Submitted by: Cassie N.
"From Now On"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I think I'll rob a store, escape the law, and live in Italy
Why They're Misrhymed:
'Store' and 'law' actually rhyme beatifully when sung with e British accent.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Goodbye Stranger"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
The devil is my savior.
Why They're Inappropriate:
The devil tries to make people miserable. I know who my savior is and it's definitely not satan.
Submitted by: I.P. Frehley
"The Logical Song"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Whoa, tick, tick, tick, yeah!
Why They're Inappropriate:
This is mentioned right before the instrumental break (with the sax solo), and by the way, these are the actual words, as confirmed on most lyrics sites. Why Roger Hodgson decided to put this in here, I don't know, but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the rest of the song.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"The Logical Song"
The Dated Lyrics:
Now watch what you say
Or they´ll be calling you a radical
A liberal, afanatical criminal ,
Oh won´t you sign up with me
We´d like to feel you´re
Acceptable, respectable,
oh presentable, a vegetable!
Why They're Dated:
The term "liberal" didn't have such negative connotations in 1979, at least not in America. "Liberal" became a slag word during the 1988 Presidential elections between VP George H.W. Bush and Massachusettes Gov. Mike Dukakis. Since then the so-called GOP has used that word as a slur but then again most Republicans today do not fall under the category of "conservative" anymore either. Yet here in this 1979 hit "liberal" is used pejoratively in a time when the textbooks were still using that word in a positive manner!
