I have always thought that Weird Al's funniest songs were his original ballads.

One More Minute

Well I heard that you’re leaving
Gonna leave me far behind
‘Cause you found a brand new lover
You decided that I’m not your kind
So I pulled your name out of my Rolodex
And I tore all your pictures in two
And I burned down the malt shop where we used to go
Just because it reminds me of you
That’s right you ain’t gonna see me cryin’
I’m glad that you found somebody new
‘Cause I’d rather spend eternity eating shards of broken glass
Than spend one more minute with you.

I guess I might seem kinda bitter
You got me feeling down in the dumps
‘Cause I’m stranded all alone in the gas station of love
And I have to use the self-service pumps
Oh, so honey, let me help you with that suitcase
You ain’t gonna break my heart in two
‘Cause I’d rather get a hundred thousand paper cuts on my face
Than spend one more minute with you.

I’d rather rip out my intestines with a fork
Than watch you going out with other men
I’d rather slam my fingers in a door
Again and again and again and again and again.
Oh, can’t you see what I’m tryin’ to say, Darlin…
I’d rather have my blood sucked out by leeches
Shove an icepick under a toenail or two
I’d rather clean all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station with my tongue
Than spend one more minute with you.

Yes, I’d rather jump naked on a huge pile of thumbtacks
Or stick my nostrils together with crazy glue
I’d rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razor blades
Than spend one more minute with you
I’d rather rip my heart out of my ribcage with my bare hands
and then throw it on the floor and stomp on it ‘till I die
Than spend one more minute with you.

Al Yankovic, 1985

Melanie


Melanie
What can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie
Why won’t you go out with me?

She lived across the street on the fifteenth floor of the Gilmore building
I saw her in the shower reaching for some soap
I knew she had to be the girl for me
And to think I probably never would have found her
If I hadn’t bought that telescope

I just can’t understand it
Why won’t you return my phone calls?
Are you still mad I gave a Mohawk to your cat?
If you’d just say the word
I’m certain that our love would last forever and ever
Or are you too dumb to realize that?

How can you ignore me when you know that I can’t live without you?
I have to go through your garbage just to learn more about you

You weren’t impressed when I tattooed your name across my forehead
You wouldn’t listen when I promised to be true
I couldn’t stand it so I jumped out from the sixteenth story window
Right above you
Now I may be dead but I still love you

Al Yankovic, 1988

The Good Old Days


Oh sometimes I think back to when I was younger
Life was so much simpler then
Dad would be up at dawn
He’d be watering the lawn
Or maybe going fishing again
Mom would be fixing up something in the kitchen
Fresh biscuits or hot apple pie
And I’d spend all day long in the basement
Torturing rats with a hack-saw
And pulling the wings off of flies.

I can still remember good old Mr. Fender
Who ran the corner grocery store
Oh, he’d stroll down the aisle with a big friendly smile
And he’d say “Howdy” when you walked in the door
Always treated me nice, gave me kindly advice
I don’t know why I set fire to his place
Oh I’ll never forget the day I bashed in his head
Well you should’ve seen the look on his face.

Do you remember sweet Michelle?
She was my high school romance
She was fun to talk to and nice to smell
So I took her to the homecoming dance
Then I tied her to a chair and I shaved off all her hair
And I left her in the desert all alone
Well sometimes in my dreams
I can still hear the screams
I wonder if she ever made it home.

Those were the good old days
Those were the good old days
The years go by but the memories stay
And those were the good old days.

Al Yankovic, 1988

You Don't Love Me Anymore


We’ve been together for so very long
But now things are changing
Oh I wonder what’s wrong
Seems you don’t want me around
The passion is gone and the flame’s died down
I guess I lost a little bit of self-esteem
That time that you made it with the whole hockey team
You used to think I was nice
Now you tell all your friends that I’m the Antichrist
Oh, why did you disconnect the breaks on my car?
That kind of thing is hard to ignore
Got a funny feeling you don’t love me anymore.

I knew that we were having problems when
You put those piranhas in my bathtub again
You’re still the light of my life
Oh darling, I’m beggin’, won’t you put down that knife?
You know, I even think it’s kinda cute the way
You poison my coffee just a little each day
I still remember the way that you laughed
When you pushed me down the elevator shaft
Oh, if you don’t mind me asking,
What’s this poisonous cobra doing in my underwear drawer?
Sometimes I get to thinking you don’t love me anymore.

You slammed my face down on the barbecue grill
Now my scars are all healing, but my heart never will
You set my house on fire
You pulled out my chest hairs with an old pair of pliers
Oh, you think I’m ugly and you say I’m cheap
You shaved off my eyebrows while I was asleep
You drilled a hole in my head
Then you dumped me in a drainage ditch and left me for dead
Oh, you know this really isn’t like you at all
You never acted this way before
Honey, something tells me you don’t love me anymore
Got a funny feeling you don’t love me anymore.

Al Yankovic, 1992

-One More Minute, Dare To Be Stupid, 1985

Now I may be dead but I still love you.

-Melanie, Even Worse, 1988

My brothers and sisters all hated me because I was an only child.

-Generic Blues, UHF, 1989


Now I may be dead but I still love you = Reverse Necrophilia

My brothers and sisters all hated me because I was an only child = Impossible Irony

Hey, why donate money to something like feeding the hungry, curing cancer, or supporting the arts when you could instead give it to this?

I mean, I have no problem with Weird Al getting a star, but the Walk of Fame is just a money-making venture. There are so much more important causes. Yuck.
