Songs about mother-in-laws?

There must be some, but I'm drawing a total blank. Seems like it would be good lyric fodder for metal

K-Doe even opened a bar by that name - Ernie K-Doe Mother-in-Law Lounge, which only recently closed (I heard Kermit Ruffins bought the place).

I know no one cares, but there's lots of songs in Hindi. The only reason I wanted to post was to provide the lyrics to one of them:

"Sas meri tha badi kapati bina gaal na bole
Ni main sas kutni,
Kutni sanduk a ole,"

Essentially,

"My mother-in-law is such a bitch, she can't talk without swearing at me
I'm going to beat the crap out of her,
Out behind the shed."

Enjoy.

Bob Rivers's "The Twelve Pains of Christmas" includes a mother-in-law psychodrama at the sixth day (and ramping up in the repeats through the next six), including "She's a witch...I hate her!"

You DO know that there's now an awesome book about Ernie K-Doe? By my old friend Ben Sandmel:

Enjoy!

There's also "Mother-In-Law Blues", by Junior Parker, covered also by Johnny Winter and many others.


I know she heard me callin', she looked back and waved her hand
I know she heard me callin', she looked back and waved her hand
I could hear her tell her mother, "That's one no good man!"

The Squirrel Nut Zippers did a little old-timey rag song called "Little Mother-In-Law" but there doesn't seem to be a clip of it online.

"My old lady's / got the cutest little mother-in-law/
she's just a little bit crazy / she's the sweetest mom you ever did saw"

There was a British Armed Forces song called "How I love her, how I love her, how I love my Mother in Law".

Obviously totally derogeratory, might be versions on you tube maybe.

Not ovious from the song title, but one of the all-time best Mother-in-Law songs is Situation Vacant from the album Something Else by The Kinks.
