They Might Be Giants', "I Palindrome I"
The Funny Lyrics:
Someday mother will die and I'll get the money!
Mom leans down and says my sentiments exactly.
Why They're funny:
One of TMBG's best lyrics. The way Linell sings the first line with such joy and enthusiasm has to be heard. And the weird part is his mom agrees with him!

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Instanbul, not Constantinople
So if you make a date
In Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul!
Why They're funny:
The logic is dead-on.

As I think, I'm using up the time left to think.

They Might Be Giants', "Meet James Ensor"
The Funny Lyrics:
He lost all his friends
He didn't need his friends
He lived with his mother and repeated himself
Why They're funny:
This is funny only if you remember that the first three lines are verbatim from a previous verse. Actually I think TMBG are funny most of the time...

Universe man
He's got a watch with a minute hand,
Millennium hand and an eon hand
Why They're funny:
That's just crazy.
