It seems to me we just don't have as many novelty songs anymore. I mean sure "This is Why I'm Hot" and "Beer for My Horses" which I assume is wrong but that Stupid Toby Keith song that people are always singing as they get drunk are pretty cheesy, but there's not enough songs about wacky stuff. Thank god I have a collection of this stuff from the 50's. This song is by Jim Burgett who wrote a few country/rockabilly songs that briefly charted in the late 50s and early 60's. I couldn't find much more information on him than that. He's got a great voice and I think that's what makes the song.
