Napoleon XIV was the pseudonym of the American singer and songwriter Jerry Samuels (born 3 May 1938, New York). His novelty songs focus on mental illness. They're about as entertaining as they are creepy. They can be pretty creepy.

!!This musician features examples of:

* LyricalDissonance: Every single thing he's ever done, with the possible exceptions of "Iowa Pot" and "The Explorer," and the definite exception of "Goofin' On The Job." The latter is sufficiently disturbing to him that he buried it in the middle of the CD release of his complete collection.
* [[spoiler:ManChild]]: "I'm In Love With My Little Red Tricycle"
* NapoleonDelusion: Implied. After all, a man who calls himself Napoleon XIV writing novelty songs about insanity?
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Inverted in "They're Coming to Get Me Again, Ha-Haaa!"
* OneHitWonder
* PerspectiveFlip: "I'm Happy They Took You Away, Ha-Haa!" by Josephine XV.
* PsychoPsychologist: "Dr. Psyche, the Cut-Rate Head-shrinker."
* {{Ramping}}: An auditory variant: his voice gets higher and higher pitched on the chorus to "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" thanks to a variable-frequency oscillator, allowing him to gain a chipmunk voice without changing the tempo.
* SanitySlippageSong: Probably all of them, but "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" takes the cake.
* SdrawkcabName: The original b-side to "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" was called "!aaaH-aH ,yawA eM ekaT oT gnimoC er'yehT" and credited to VIX Noelopan. It was in fact "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" played backwards.
* SequelSong: "They're Coming to Get Me Again, Ha-Haaa!"
* SplitPersonality: "I live in a split level head"
* WordSaladLyrics: "Bats in my Belfry". That quote up there is probably the most sensible lyrics in the whole song.
