Insulting Song Lyrics:

"They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Well, you just wait, they'll find you yet,
And when they do, they'll put you
In the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!
Why They're Insulting:
Crazed verbal payback for ungratefulness. But what makes it more interesting is listeners may be confused over whether he's addressing his pet dog or his ex-girlfriend (hence the "mangy mutt" reference)

Songs That Are Banned:

"They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!"
A recording engineer named Jerry Samuels, who billed himself as Napoleon XIV, hits #3 on the Billboard HOT 100 singles charts with this novelty song (It had one of the fastest rises to that high on the charts with only three weeks to reach to #3). In it's third week of national release, the song is banned by many U.S. radio stations because it seemed to make fun of the insane. (After the radio stations do this, the song has the fastest known plunge on the Billboard HOT 100 charts: It moves from #3 all the way out of the charts on it's fourth week of national release).
