Richard Harris', "Macarthur Park"
The Funny Lyrics:
I left the cake out in the rain,
And I worked so hard to make it,
And it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no!
Why They're funny:
Believe it or not, this is supposed to be a metaphor about love-and the song itself isn't a novelty song (like 'Flying Purple People-Eater') but is intended to be taken seriously! Really. Unsurprisingly, when columnist Dave Barry did a survey about which rock songs were the worst ever (which excluded deliberately silly novelty songs), 'MacArthur Park' was number one in votes.
