The Addams Family

One that got me in trouble (and one that would get MY kid in trouble, too) is this version of The Addams Family that’s gone around since the show was first on:

The Addams family started
when Uncle Fester farted
they call became retarded
the Addams family

    the _____ family started,
    when little ______ farted,
    they all came out retarded,

    Also, another "fart song" fav, back in the early '70's was sung to the tune of the Royal Guardsmen's hit single Snoopy V. The Red Baron; to wit:
    10 20 30 40 50 or more,
    _______ let a fart in the grocery store,
    80 people died trying to hold their breath,
    ________ let another and it killed the rest

    Remember; Gene Gene made a machine,
    Joe Joe made it go,
    Art Art let a fart,
    and blew it all apart

    In Australia in the 90's, the version at my school went

    The Addams family started
    When Uncle Fester farted
    He farted through the keyhole
    And paralysed the cat.

    The cat fell down the dunny
    it wasn't very funny
    it cost a lot of money
    to get the darn thing out!

    (Of course, having never watched The Addams family – grew up in a no-tv household – this may be the actual themesong and I would not know; though I doubt it is.)

      Just want you to know that 4 years later your post has saved my mind. Couldn’t remember the whole jingle.

    OMG I DO remember that! I can't even guess how long ago, but maybe like late 60s? Early 70s? Although I seem to remember now line 3 as "That's why they're all retarded." Great jumping jeeps, that must have been 5th or 6th grade at the latest!

    The cat fell off the pillar / got all excited
    and shouted Aston Villa / Man United
    something something something

      The version I was taught was:

      The Addams family started,
      When Uncle Fester farted,
      He farted through the keyhole,
      And paralyzed the cat.

      The cat was so excited,
      He shouted Man United,
      And Man United shouted
      That Liverpool are c**p!

      I’d never heard one for Villa.
