I remember lmao when I heard this the first time. My favorite line is "I'd flush myself right down the toilet, but I'd just clog up the drain..." friggitydiggty hilarious. :clap:

I've always like this song, but it was never my favorite. The three lines about his family are really funny.

I wonder if Al has ever considered recording more blues songs.

Ok, a lot of people crap on *this* Al song, but I freakin' LOVE it! Lately I have actually been playing it on purpose instead of waiting until it shows up in the shuffle on the MP3 player. I actually only recently got the whole UHF soundtrack, so listening to this song often is new to me believe it or not. This is one of my fave Al songs of the moment!

I'm also a big fan of this song. Kind of underrated. A great hybrid of a blues satire and just plain nonsense song.

I still remember getting Permanent Record that one Christmas (When I still had only a few Al cassettes) and this was the one song I hadn't heard at that point that blew me away the most.

Still absolutely love it

This is, honestly, in my top 5 Al songs. Definitely.

Add me to the list of people who really love this song. Not only is it the best blues song ever, but it's also every blues song ever.

The only blues song better than this one is by "Blind Lemon" Yankovic.
