Mama get the hammer (there's a fly on Papa's head) 

Spurred into Googling by Chris' post at the Virtual Stoa, I discovered that Drop kick me, Jesus is a real song, but also managed to find many further examples of classic country and western song titles - the blunt You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly, the punning If My Nose Were full Of Nickles, I'd Blow It All On You and the almost political I've Got The Hungries For Your Love And I'm Waiting In Your Welfare Line being among the most interesting. More here.

If those prove inspirational, then another great find was the "Do-It-Yourself C&W song generator". My effort:

I met her in a gay bar stoned on oatmeal;
I can still recall the hearing aid she wore;
She was drinkin' Dr. Pepper with Led-Zeppelin,
and I knew that she would be a crashing bore;
The blood test showed I'd warp her mind forever;
She said to me that Nixon didn't lie;
But who'd have thought she'd yodel while in labor;
She freaked out on the lawn and screamed goodbye.
