Elvis!

Elvis is unquestionably awesome.

But have you ever looked deep into his catalogue? There are some hilarious song titles in there.

Examples:

1) "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone"

Wow on so many levels.

2) "I Forgot to Remember to Forget"

This one ties my brain in a knot.

3) "Milk Cow Blues Boogie" 

Double entendre, anyone? I'll have two, thanks.

Did I miss any other good ones?

"There's No Room To Rhumba in a Sports Car"

Such legendary lyrics include:

Cause there's , no room to rhumba in a sports car
You can't move forward or back
There's no room to do what the beat tells you to
Without throwing your spine outta wack

What a way to waste a day with you
Nothing happens that can tell the truth
Let's go out and find a telephone booth
Yeah that's a better place, I like more space

Seems your a fan of EP's Sun Records recordings, could of included "Baby, Let's Play House".

On a bootleg I once heard a parody/fractured version of "Old McDonald".

You'll have two? Come on, man.

this one is pretty terrible:

Hey listen world you've gotta know
I'm cuttin loose and lettin' go
Who needs the worry and the strife
Life can be a ball now just followin' my life
clambake, gonna have a clambake
clambake, gonna have a clambake

Look for the brightest lights in town
That's where you'll find me hanging round
I've got this feeling to be free
I pick and choose the life I want
And that's the life for me
clambake, gonna have a clambake
clambake, gonna have a clambake

Mamma's little baby loves clambake, clambake
Mamma's little baby loves clambake too
Mamma's little baby loves clambake, clambake
Mamma's little baby loves clambake too

Burning Love is actual kind of funny, depending who is performing it.
On Latr Night with David Letterman, they had Larry "bud" Melman do it to great hilarious effect.

writer: Dennis Linde

"Lord have mercy,
I'm burning a hole where I lay
Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love
With burning love
Ah, ah, burning love
I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love"
