    Anybody know of a song with more clichés than this one by John Prine?

    It's a Big Old Goofy World
    Up in the morning
    Work like a dog
    Is better than sitting
    Like a bump on a log
    Mind all your manners
    Be quiet as a mouse
    Some day you'll own a home
    That's as big as a house

    I know a fella
    He eats like a horse
    Knocks his old balls
    Round the old golf course
    You oughta see his wife
    She's a cute little dish
    She smokes like a chimney
    And drinks like a fish

    There's a big old goofy man
    Dancing with a big old goofy girl
    Ooh baby
    It's a big old goofy world

    Now Elvis had a woman
    With a head like a rock
    I wished I had a woman
    That made my knees knock
    She'd sing like an angel
    And eat like a bird
    And if I wrote a song
    She'd know ever single word

    Kiss a little baby
    Give the world a smile
    If you take an inch
    Give 'em back a mile
    Cause if you lie like a rug
    And you don't give a damn
    You're never gonna be
    As happy as a clam

    So I'm sitting in a hotel
    Trying to write a song
    My head is just as empty
    As the day is long
    Why it's clear as a bell
    I should have gone to school
    I'd be wise as an owl
    Stead of stubborn as a mule.

    This is somewhat similiar. Not neccesarily cliche's, but if you remember the hair metal bands from the 80's, you might get a kick out of this video.
