Funniest Ben Folds Song ever?

So anyone heard the "Bitches Ain't Shit" cover that Ben Folds has done?

Just about the funniest thing I've ever heard, I love the deadpan delivery. And to think, someone actually wrote those lyrics without a joke in mind...

"Yeah that's some real conversation for your ass"











Spend the 99¢ and get it from iTunes. It's worth it.

You mean "Song for the Dumped"


I like Ben's more thoughtful stuff, but usually that's injected with a bit of humor, too. Makes for a very poignant mix. I'm going to have to go with "Army" and "Battle of Who Could Care Less."

Ben's other covers have been great fun, too. The Darkness' "Get Your Hands Off My Woman," Elton John's "Tiny Dancer," Wham's "Careless Whisper." and more.

Yes and no. It was a great lead single, but it was pretty shallow in a lot of ways. Some of it still cracks me up, but it has an air of novelty to it.

Yeah... I'm just taking on too many facets of a pseudo-intellectual. Too hard to please anymore. *sigh*

I can't believe I forgot about this one.

"All U Can Eat"

Son, look at all the people in this restaurant
What do you think they weigh?
And out the window to the parking lot
At their SUV’s taking all the space

They give no fuck
They talk as loud as they want
They give no fuck
Just as long as there’s enough for them

Gonna get on the microphone down at Wal-Mart
Talk about some shit that’s been on my mind
Talk of the state of this great nation of ours
People look to your left
Yeah, look to your right

They give no fuck
They buy as much as they want
They give no fuck
Just as long as there’s enough for them

Son, look at the people lining up for plastic
Wouldn’t you like to see them in the National Geographic?
Squatting bare assed in the dirt eating rice from a bowl
With a towel on their head, and maybe a bone in their nose

See that asshole with the peace sign on his license plate?
Giving me the finger and running me out of his lane
God made us number one because he loves us the best
Well he should go bless someone else for a while
Give us a rest

(They give no)
Yeah, and everyone can see
(They give no)
We’ve eaten all that we can eat
