Elder Fun and Silliness For a Holiday

It has recently been suggested by a couple of readers that I have no sense of humor. So as an antidote on a day when we should all be out enjoying ourselves, here is something that gave me a laugh: a list of some 1960's hit songs revised to suit aging baby boomers (and some of us who are older even than they are). [Hat tip to John Brandt.]

HERMAN’S HERMITS: Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker

THE BEE GEES: How Can You Mend a Broken Hip

BOBBY DARIN: Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash

RINGO STARR: I Get By With a Little Help From Depends

ROBERTA FLACK: The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face

JOHNNY NASH: I Can't See Clearly Now

PAUL SIMON: Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver

MARVIN GAYE: I Heard It Through the Grape Nuts

PROCOL HARUM: A Whiter Shade of Hair

LEO SAYER: You Make Me Feel Like Napping

THE TEMPTATIONS: Papa's Got a Kidney Stone

ABBA: Denture Queen

TONY ORANDO: Knock Three Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall

HELEN REDDY: I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore

WILLIE NELSON: On the Commode Again

LESLIE GORE: It's My Procedure and I'll Cry If I Want To

[At The Elder Storytelling Place today, a short bit of administrivia for you.]

Brilliant!

I enjoyed these!

LOL These are great!

I take issue with those who say you haven't a sense of humor. Anyone who likes groaners has a GREAT sense of humor in my not so humble opinion!

Man, I need to have a sense of humor or I'll cry. I didn't realize how old I really am until I read your list. These songs are from groups and singers that my kids loved.

And you do have a sense of humor, Ronni. It's just that most of your subjects are serious; as should be.

This is a dangerous list. Now I keep hearing Leslie Gore's tune in my head with the new lyric...

OMG! Someone come over here and help me get up from the floor! LOL Just hilarious!

Ronni,

Great fun!!!!

How about Frank Sinatra:

"Let's take a trip to Viagra."

Rex Harrison:

"I've Grown Accustomed to Her Brace."

Those are terrific, Nancy. How about the rest of you - have you got any more to add to the list?

Oh, yes, singable humor. Thank you.

....and, thanks to you, I was forced to learn how to code the blogspot way when I discovered that I had been added to your bloglist. I had not been able to make my entries "read" correctly and show all their images, but now they do. Boy do I feel honored to be there. Thank you for including me.

Ronni, I'm a lurker who enjoys your blog so much; love you, Oliver, and your blogging friends. Don't recall all the singers' names, but I'm in my 70s so some of my favorite songs are "Let's Get It On with Velcro fasteners," "Get Down Tonight--now try to get back up," and "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Slower." Thanks for the smiles.

Too funny! Thanks!

Late to the party, but I love this list! Thanks for a good laugh, Ronni and you other jokemeisters!
