I'm inspired!

I have my thinking cap on...

This reminded me of a post about weirdest Who songs; the thread starts here:

There's certainly a lot of songs in that thread which could be classified as "silly":

Now I'm A Farmer
Tommy's Holiday Camp
Cobwebs and Strange
Trilby's Piano

My dilemma is: to try and think of songs which I haven't included in any previous compilation.  (Or at least, to find very different versions of the best songs, eg: Happy Jack.)

A lot of the silliest songs relate to animals (eg: Dogs, The Pig Must Die, Boris the Spider) - but they've all been included on the Animals compilation.  Or people's names (eg: Silas, Mary Ann, Rollerskate Kate), which are all on the Who Are You? compilation.

But I should easily be able to come up with around 20 silly songs - in the next few weeks or so.  But let me know of any more ideas you get.
