U2's, "Elevation"
The Funny Lyrics:
A mole, diggin in a hole,
diggin up my soul now goin down, excavation...
Why They're funny:
What the heck is Bono talkin' about?!? Talk about rhyming cliches. It sounds almost like a nursery rhyme - but it makes a top song!

U2's, "Mysterious Ways"
The Funny Lyrics:
If you wanna kiss the sky,
Better learn how to kneel (On your knees, boy!)
Why They're funny:
'Kiss the sky' is a reference to Jimi Hendrix's famous misheard lyric from 'Purple Haze'. Substitute the misheard version of that lyric - 'kiss this guy' - and suddenly you have Bono commanding you to perform fellatio on him.

U2's, "Numb"
The Funny Lyrics:
Don't travel by train
Don't eat
Don't spill
Don't piss down the drain
Don't make a will
Why They're funny:
This whole song doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but IMHO this is the best line in the whole song. I laugh every time I hear it.

U2's, "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
The Funny Lyrics:
And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV a reality
Why They're funny:
This song was written back in 1983, about 17-18 years before the big reality TV craze. Now it is true without a doubt that 'TV is a reality'

U2's, "The Ground Beneath Her Feet"
The Funny Lyrics:
Go lightly down your darkened way
Go lightly underground
I'll be down there in another day
Why They're funny:
This song is supposed to be such an innocent love song, but I was singing along to these lines and I stopped and laughed uncontrollably when I realized what I was singing! (Hint: "darkened way"- and a man is singing this to a woman.)

U2's, "Tryin To Throw Your Arms Around The World"
The Funny Lyrics:
I dreamed that I saw Dali
With a supermarket trolley
Why They're funny:
I don't think that makes any sense but hey, the song is still really great!

U2's, "With Or Without You"
The Funny Lyrics:
With or without you
I can't live with or without you
Why They're funny:
So it sounds like he's going to die either way...
