Ray Steven was one of the best writer of funny songs ever! You probably remember The Streak song and I will give you that link at the end.
I wanted to share a few other songs with you by Ray Stevens that you may not have heard. The one I will link for you is “It’s Me Margaret” . This song is very twisted but it is funny the way he does it.
This next one is “The Mississippi Squirrel Revival” This song is so funny. A squirrel gets into the church and begins running up the skirts of the ladies during the church service. The results of this squirrel running up and down the legs of the ladies is worth a listen…
This next one is “Jeremiah Peabody’s Poly Unsaturated Quick Dissolving Fast Acting Pleasant Tasting Green and Purple Pills”
This song is presented like a commercial for a con artist Wonder Drug ! It Cures Everything from the sniffle to the blues to being overweight and having arthritis….even Water on the Knee !
Take the Wonder Drug that Cures all Your Ills! Take the Jeremiah Peabody’s, Poly Unsaturated, Fast Acting, Quick Dissolving, Pleasant Tasting, Green and Purple Pill !
And now that you have taken that Green and Purple Pill…
Yes…It is finally time…drum roll please….This one is guaranteed to make you smile….or your money back !
The Steak !
When I was a kid of about 6 years old. there was a rash of streaking in Baltimore. Every night on the news there was another incident of a streaker.
This was the time that I learned the word Streaker. I had to ask my Dad because they were talking about all these streakers on the news.
This song came out, right about this time I remember listening to this song with my father, when it came on the car radio. He thought it was so funny…
There is a line in the song that goes like this.
“Oh yes they call him the Streak….He likes to Turn the Other Cheek !”
That was one of our favorite lines in the song..My father and I used to laugh so hard at that line! He likes to turn the other cheek. Haha ! LOL
The end of the song is so funny…Ethel who at first seems to be shocked at the streaker…ends up taking off her own clothes,..much to the husband’s dismay, who is running after her yelling …Ethel ! Get Your Clothes ON !
