Always hated your having our baby.
The tune is ok for Muskrat Love, but the lyrics-ugh. Funny note on this song. The artists, The Captain and Tennell, performed this song, amongst others, for government officials including Henry Kissinger. She said it was rather humorous and a little embarrassing to watch old Henry as he realized they were singing about two muskrats "getting it on."

Every time there's a tragedy you hear this song over and over and over......
My family knows if they play this at my funeral I will haunt them down and slime them.
I always find it amusing that so many people choose this song and I can't help but think that they don't have the first clue as to what the origin of the song really is. If they did, they'd probably never choose it for funerals!
Insofar as songs I hate, I hate anything by Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Suzanne Vega, and Sarah McLachlan. They literally make me scream, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!" whenever one of their songs come on the radio while I'm driving my car. I can't punch the button to change the station fast enough. There are others, but they escape me right now.
Way back before my bartending days I used to cocktail at a rather eclectic little bar and restaurant. The owner was a mean old drunk and one of his favorite methods to torture the staff was obnoxious jukebox music.
First and foremost, to keep all new/popular music off the jukebox he had a rule that no living artists were allowed to be on it. He fancied himself a member of the rat pack so it was loaded with Frank, Sammy and Dean. I actually garnered an appreciation for that genre because of it but most the other girls my age, it drove them batty!
But oh, how I vividly remember the day after Tiny Tim died. With a malicious grin on his face, he had Tiptoe Through the Tulips loaded onto the jukebox and played it CONSTANTLY all. week. long. Over and over and over, that falsetto voice and ukelele assaulted our eardrums while he sat back with his favorite drink (firewater, peppermint schnapps and soda water) and smirked at us.
I hate Tiny Tim, I hate his ukelele and HATE that damn song!
It wasn't TOO bad the first... 3 or 4 times I heard it. Then it because the most incredibly overplayed song in history. Now it makes my ears want to bleed and I change the channel as soon as I hear the first notes.
I hate the original, but there is a you tube video of this little farm kid singing Farmer Maybe on his daddy's dairy farm. That was cute. The song is annoying, but the vid was precious.
