Funny / Paul Simon

  • The music-video version of "You Can Call Me Al" he did with Chevy Chase, with Chase being the one "singing" the lyrics while a bored Simon slouches and twiddles his thumbs.
  • While it's most famous for its goofy chorus ("Just slip out the back, Jack/Make a new plan, Stan") the verses of "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover" tell a much more slyly funny tale of a sophisticated woman manipulating the the naive singer into ditching his current girl and getting with her:
    She said, it's really not my habit to intrude
    And furthermore I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
    So I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude
    There must be fifty ways to leave your lover...
