Thompson Twins', "Doctor! Doctor!"
The Funny Lyrics:
Doctor! Doctor!
Can't you see I'm burning, burning?
Why They're funny:
Either the doctor is blind (so how he managed to obtain his profession is beyond comprehension) or he's pretty much inept (so how he managed to obtain his profession is beyond comprehension). And it's not as if the doctor's that much at fault here either. Some people really have no sense of urgency...

Thompson Twins', "We Are Detectives"
The Funny Lyrics:
We saw him smoking by the newspaper stand There's something odd about his gloved left hand Saw him again inside the old café He makes us tense we wish he'd go away (later...) Someone is on our tail We think they're opening up our morning mail And now each time the telephone rings We think of frightening things
Why They're funny:
Smoking a cigarette and standing by the newspaper stand. 'Morning mail' probably sounds funny. I like the funny word 'telephone rings'. The woman picks up the phone and realizing something's scary and she screams in freight.
