They’re Coming To Take Me Away always was a hoot. Especially the B side.

As far as I know, this is the only parody that Weird Al Yankovic ever did without changing a single word of the original lyrics:
Maybe this is the ultimate tribute that a parodist could ever pay to the original author!

I would say that a lot of songwriters take themselves too seriously. It might help to lighten up, get a little sense of humor.

The Wurzels' "Back of My Old Car"
https://www.thewurzels.com/lyricsbackofmycar.htm

Todd Rundgren's "Emperor of the Highway"

Utopia's "Deface the Music" a full album of Beatles parodies

Always late (always late)
Yes, it's always the same
Procrastination is my middle name
But the rest of the world is ahead of the game
And that's why I'm always late

The Rutles, a Beatles parody, several albums of material. Neil Innes (often wrote tunes for Monty Python) and Eric Idle.
(George Harrison makes a cameo at a reporter in TV special)

Piggy in the Middle, an I am the Walrus parody

I know you know what you know
but you should know by now that you're not me

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-a-poo-poo

One man's civilization
is another man's jungle, yeah
They say revolution's in the air
I'm dancing in my underwear
'cause I don't care

How could he be mentioned without "Werewolves of London?"

Him, Weird Al, and Ray Stevens were the ones that came to mind. Also Zappa.

Didn't mention Werewolves because of ubiquity. It's been sampled, the others haven't. Plus it's more snarky than funny.

Sorry but IMO none of that makes any sense. Agree to disagree.
