i didn't grow up listening to country...still don't, really

But, this genre holds the unofficial title for Best (or is it worst?) song titles. I had a little chuckle as I perused some titles on the web.

Here's my Top Ten:

"You're the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly"

"If You Don't Believe I Love You Just Ask My Wife"

"I've Been Roped and Throwed by Jesus in the Holy Ghost Corral"

"She Got The Gold Mine And I Got The Shaft She Got The Ring And I Got The Finger"

"I've Got The Hungries For Your Love And I'm Waiting In Your Welfare Line"

"If You Don't Leave Me Alone, I'll Go And Find Someone Else Who Will"

"If My Nose Were Full of Nickels, I'd Blow It All On You"

"I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You"

"I Would Have Wrote You A Letter, But I Couldn't Spell Yuck!"

and my personal favorite...

"Her Teeth Were Stained, But Her Heart Was Pure"

these are so outrageous I almost can't believe they are real. I always thought that "check you for ticks" song was really corny.

LOL you northerner you! Being from eastern Kentucky, I know some of these songs! I do have a secret (well, not-so-secret) love for country music as I was born and bred on it.

My favorite:

"If You Don't Believe I Love You Just Ask My Wife"

sarah and i are BOTH northerners. i kinda wondered the same thing that she did, but then i did some googling.

country song writers are witty.

mandy, i'm with you, love "if you don't believe i love you just ask my wife" that was one of my favorite favorites!
