Try the filk community on LJ:


I bet you'll get suggestions there.

Do you need silly-adult, or silly-for-kids? Randomly, some in each category:

-Flatten the Grass
-Never Set the Cat On Fire
-Black Widows in the Privy
-Bin There, Dun That
-Fuzzy Little Animals
-Dragon For Sale
-Asteroid Named Rest Stop
-Jack the Slob and the Goddess of Love

The Dragon Song, if you're willing to venture into the realm of sexual euphemism & double entendre. It's TTTO "The Irish Washerwoman."

Less simple, but still silly & double-entendre-ey is Tom's "Superman Sex-Life Blues."

180˚ from that is "Monsters In the Night," from the point of view of a small child.

These are all oldies but goodies that I almost launched my musical career as a singer-songwriter of filk in the folk community, (but graduate school sucked that all away). They went over well for mundane audiences.
I have more such titles, but while they're still silly and appealing, they're less easy.

You can listen to my show of Filk Funnies over at The Mad Music Archive. You need to join/Sign-Up to get the buttons to listen, otherwise you can see the playlist.
