The funniest songs about girls often celebrate everything that is great about being, well, a woman. Many women who have made their mark in history and pop culture are witty, intelligent go-getters – so it shouldn’t be surprising that many of these hilarious songs about women were written or performed by women. Some are self-deprecating, some are totally quirky, others are outright empowering, and all of them are wholly original.
These songs are certainly funny, but a few of them also feature rather cutting lyrics. One prime example is Loretta Lynn’s “The Pill.” Lynn – who shows up a couple of times on this list – recorded the song in 1975. In it, she sings of a woman who is tired of having babies up on “nursery hill,” telling her man, “You’ve set this chicken your last time, ‘cause now I’ve got the pill.” The song set off a firestorm of controversy, and it remains one of Lynn’s biggest hits.
You’ll find plenty of silly songs about women from country artists on this list, but there are also lots of funny women songs from other genres, including rap music and rock. Of course, not everyone has the same sense of humor, so there is a fair chance you’ll find songs listed here that don’t strike you as particularly funny. To each his (or her) own. Vote them down in that case, but if one of these funny women songs tickles your fancy, be sure to vote it up.
