10,000 Maniacs', "What's The Matter Here?"
The Funny Lyrics:
Threats like if you don't mind,
I will beat on your behind
Slap you, slap you silly.
Why They're funny:
The song, itself, isn't funny. However, this line is amusing to me because the first several times I heard it, I didn't think mind as in 'listen to me.' I heard the song saying, 'If it's okay with you, I will beat on you.' Now, I find this portion amusing.
