Say, has anyone ever told you you've got Yugoslavian hands?
No, of course not, that would be stupid.

Ooh yeah, dirtbag
Sounds like a tribute, doesn't it? (I suppose this line could also go in the Insulting section.)

I hope you have a lot of nice things to wear.
OK the song is about cautioning a woman who wants to leave her lover and it seems like they've been in a long time relationship about the evils of the world and how it's not such a friendly and warm place and hoping that she'll be fine but then the guy sounds concerned that she won't be. It's a sad and serious song. And then he wishes her a lot of nice things to wear? If that's not funny and doesn't make you laugh then I don't know what to tell you. Within the context of the rest of the song I think it's kind of silly. :D

He got feet down below his knee
Everybody has a foot below each knee; this line is just painfully obvious. Besides, as it's sung, it implies the guy has multiple feet and just one knee. Freaky.

And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile.
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house...with a beautiful wife.
And you may ask yourself, 'Well, how did I get here?'
And you may ask yourself, 'Where is that large automobile?'
And you may tell yourself, 'This is not my beautiful house!'
And you may tell yourself, 'This is not my beautiful wife!'
This is so hilarious. The first time around, he names these three items, then the second time around he realizes that the person he's addressing shouldn't be thrown into this fantasy right away.

Sue: I'm twenty-six years old and I'm not married
I don't even have any kids and I can't cook
Eminem: I'm over here Sue, you're talkin to the plant, look!
This one just comes across to me as funny; he tells the lady that she's talking to a plant and not to him!

Hey, haven't you got a gnome to go to?
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.
