View Full Version : After Hours *grown-ups only* Singalong Suggestions

06-03-2010, 08:33 AM

I'm working on Volume 2 of the very fun singalong booklet I posted last summer and I asked around to my friends, "what worked? what didn't? what would you like included this summer?" One of the bits of feedback I got was about a certain Jimmy Buffet song. I think he sometimes calls it A Love Song (From a Different Point of View.) The comment was there were often young'uns at the cookouts when we used the singalong book and that song was a little racy. Point taken. I am keeping Volume 2 family-friendly--well, friendly for MY family anyhow.

That said. There are some very fun tunes that are not safe for mixed company, but with the right crowd would be most excellent for singalong. For instance, Why Don't We do it in the Road by the Beatles, or Let's Duet from the Dewey Cox movie, and a number of songs by Garfunkel and Oates, natch. SO, I've decided to assemble two books, one of which will be decidedly After Hours.

I come to you, my Ukulele Underground folks, to ask for your ideas and recommendations. Keep it clean, liberal use of asterisks are welcome. This is an all ages forum, of course.

Naturally, I will make the final book available for download, with the blessing of our UU moderators.

the A$$hole song by david alen Cole..:)

My favorite is Good Ship Venus by Loudon Wainwright III on the Rogue's Gallery cd. It also goes by Friggin In The Riggin, which The Sex Pistols did.

Sadly, I can't think of any, as I have an awful tendency to make every song an... ahem... After Hours song (Love that euphemism! Hope you don't mind if I use it in day to day!)

"Killing me softly (with his... well, it rhymes with "Song")", "You've got it all over him (and can you wipe it off now, please?)", The Proclaimer's "500 Miles" practically BEGS to be rewritten filthily... "When I'm (censored), yeah, you know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the (censored)(censored)(censored)(censored)..."

God... I'm a child. Sad, really.

"Lick it before you stick it" on by dirty Uke player Hot Time Harv:

whats wrong with "why dont we do it in the road". My kids love it - (mainly cos i blasted Beatles to both of them from an early age). both love it as a song. One now old enough to understand the connotations, but being old enough, he probably just s******s to himself about it.

Its hardly a lyric that will make him a deviant surely??

Anything by Ivor Biggun, especially The Winkers Song (Misprint), All Of These Things are Soul or Dorothy Please Trim Your Minge. Listen at http://www.myspace.com/stiffweapon
Not sure how you Americans will get on with the British humour though.

My Ding-a-ling - Chuck Berry. My wife hates this song. I crack up every time I hear it.

The Light Crust Doughboys - "Everybodys Trucking" and "Pussy, Pussy, Pussy" (about a lost cat!) are pretty wicked.

This one just HAS to be on the list.

Da Vinci's Notebook "Enormous *****"

That was great! Unbelievable harmonies. Their song "Internet Porn" is also very funny and really well done.
And yeah... What's dirty about "Why Don't We Do It In The Road"??? He never says WHAT they are doing. Get yer mind outta the gutter!
There would be numerous George Formby songs that would fit this criteria. They are almost, but juuuuuuuussssst not quite, dirty.

06-03-2010, 02:35 PM
Ahh never mind lol I had another song in mind that was sung by a guy with a studder about a real cun cun cun tree girl but I forgot the name of it
just think about all the songs that have been written with double meanings CRaZy :)

06-03-2010, 02:51 PM
Uncle Elvis, I think I love you.

Love you right back!

I'm going to look through my cassette collection to find the song I wrote with some friends for ya.
It's about, as my friend described it, "Like, you know when you break up with someone and, like, you're cool, but, like, when they broke up with you, you want them? That's what the song is about."
It's called "A View From Behind"

It's also about a certain... um... After Hours... position. The best line that I remember at the moment is "But you could never see me that way..."

I have no idea why I'm telling you this!

06-03-2010, 04:28 PM
Go on...

also adding the Gourds cover of Gin and Juice to this list.

06-03-2010, 05:02 PM
YES! Perfect! That is one of my favorite covers of all time.

If you want to go truly... um... after hours... my friend squedge is my go to guy. I wish he'd put his song "I want to see Bea Arthur nude" on YouTube. Not only funny, but a really good song, too! But... well... you can't go wrong with "Licky Licky Night", can ya? (It starts about 2 mins 20 secs in) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pr2nEVHQ5xw

BTW, Pinkie (nah... it must be Leather) just DLed your songbook. You're made of awesome. Thanks!

06-03-2010, 05:19 PM
mos def Leather, not Pinkie. I will be watching these youtubes on the interwebs as soon as the Celts/Lakers game is over. Although, I'm afraid I'm not going to like how it ends.

made of awesome, huh? I might have to update my signature ;)

There's no "apparently" about it.

That is the first thing I thought of.

How about Aerosmith's "Big Ten-Inch"?

Or the classic "Shaving Cream"? (Try the the uke-friendly reggae version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6LoVvhruvs).)

Or "She-Bop"?

Although I question the premise that a bunch of people sitting around singing dirty songs on ukuleles could be accurately labelled as "grown-ups". :-)

Durr. I'm an idiot!

"Big Balls" by AC/DC!

If the tone of the NBA finals doesn't change, some talented Bostonian is going to be writing something called "The Rasheed Wallace Song" that'll definitely have "after hours" lyrics.
