David Bowie's, "Suffragette City"
The Funny Lyrics:
Ah... wham bam thank you ma'am!
Why They're funny:
You have to be hearing this for the first time - it caught me off guard at first; I didn't know what he meant.

David Bowie's, "The Laughing Gnome"
The Funny Lyrics:
Hey, haven't you got a gnome to go to?
Why They're funny:
Bowie finds the garden dwarf sitting on his doorstep, so it seems to me this is one of Bowie's first 'creepy characters' but here (the single is from '67) it's all fun.

David Bowie's, "Ziggy Stardust"
The Funny Lyrics:
He was the nazz
with God given ass
Why They're funny:
As English is not my native language, I used to think that 'nazz' was short for 'nazarene', so that the image would be that Ziggy was Christ. If that were the case, his hindquarters would certainly be 'God given'!
