Totally Off Topic–Never make a pretty woman your wife

I’ve always heard this song and thought it was terrible and funny at the same time. Oh Lord, it tickles me. The song is called “If you want to be happy” and it was a number one hit in 1963. It’s based off of a calypso called “Ugly Woman”.

Check out the conks!

    I have liked this song since I was a kid. I remember it from that Cher and Winona Ryder movie. I think it was called Mermaids. I always thought it was made just for the movie. Now I know who sings it.

    Growing up in Bermuda, I heard this song on my Nana’s favorite radio station. It’s hilarious (and somewhat true)!

    It is a great song – The movie with the song was Mermaids – with Winona and Cher – they play the song in the last scene :o)
