Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Lucky One"
The Funny Lyrics:
Doot-doo, doot-doo-n-doo-doo
Doot-doo, hey, I'm the lucky one.
Doot-doo, doot-doo-n-doo-doo
Ah, my, my, my baby
Doot-doo, doot-doo-n-doo-doo
Doot-doo, the lucky one.
Doot-doo, doot-doo-n-doo-doo
Hey I'm the lucky one.
Why They're Funny:
Nothin' like a bunch of scat lines to fill out the outro. (Although in at least one instance she says "baby" instead of "hey".)
Submitted by: C.J.
"Takes A Little Time"
The Funny Lyrics:
It takes a little time sometimes
To get the Titanic turned back around.
Why They're Funny:
I think it's funny that she mentions Titanic, since the movie of that name hit theaters just a few short months after this song was a hit on the charts, in late 1997.

Ask me just how much I love you
You are starlight, I'm Galileo
Even on the darkest night, oh
I will find the shining light of our love
Why They're Nonsensical:
She says it's the light of their love that she'll find--but if he's supposed to be starlight, wouldn't it be him that she'll find?

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

Amy is basically telling non-believers to laugh at her if they want, but she will still believe in God and not feel ashamed or embarrassed. But she bristles a bit when she has to hug a mean person in spite of his overpowering body odor.
Submitted by: Christian

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Leaving her husband for a fellow singer"
She was for many years (by all appearances) happily married to Gary Chapman and had three kids with him, and indeed this family life and love inspired many of her non-Gospel hits. However, she then left Gary for Vince Gill who in turn divorced his own wife Janis Gil (nee Oliver) and had a kid with him. Both claimed only being friends before their respective divorces but how quickly they got married afterwards and the timing of Amy's pregnancy announcement relative to the birth announcement left things a touch suspicious. For the record, as of this post Vince and Amy are still together.
