Karaoke can be a time to show off your mad singing skills to your partner. It can be a great way to express yourself to your other half, helping you to understand each other better. 

But we must remember the most important thing about karaoke: it’s all about having a great time belting fun songs with a companion (after a few drinks of course). 

In this article, we have put together a list of funny duets that couples can sing together. While we’re on the topic, be sure to check out the best karaoke duets of all time!

The Best Funny Duets for Couples

“Come Up to My Place” – Betty Garrett and Frank Sinatra

Originally from the 1944 Broadway musical “On The Town,” this song was eventually made into a movie in 1949. 

In this song, the sailor, Chip, wants to see the places in his father’s outdated guidebook.

He happens to get into a taxi driven by the young cabbie, Hildy, who’s smitten with him and intends to bring him back to her apartment.

Chip lists the destinations he wants to visit, but Hildy informs him those places have been replaced with a newer locale or just don’t exist anymore.

In the end, she manages to convince him to go to where she wants him—her place!

Comedic with slight innuendoes, this song is easy to sing and doesn’t need fantastic vocal power. All you need to do is inject some fun and enthusiasm into your performance. 

“The Song That Goes Like This” – Christopher Sieber and Sara Ramirez 

This funny love song is from the musical comedy Spamalot, which was adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail

This number features the radical Dennis Galahad who sings about his transformation into a knight with the Lady of the Lake.

The song even takes it up in hilarity by having both of them acknowledge the change of key that’s peppered in many other romantic songs. 

The best way to sing this song is to simply have fun and try not to burst out laughing too much during your performance.

Props if you’re about to copy Sara’s deliberate high-pitched voice. 

“You’re the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly” – Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty 

From the title, you probably guessed this song would be ridiculous to the max.

This country track describes a couple who blame each other for the drastic changes in their life.

Despite that, they still love each other. 

What puts this song on our list is its relaxing guitar-backed melody and cheeky lyrics that are easy to remember.

To make your performance more fun, add some sarcasm in your voice to sell that married-couple vibe. 

“Love Shack” – The B-52’s

Released in 1989, “Love Shack” is a pop-rock hit from the band B-52’s.

A karaoke staple until today, the song’s title refers to a secluded place couples can meet to do the deed. 

While this song is usually performed in groups, you can also enjoy it with your partner!

Aside from its delightful lyrics and upbeat rhythm, “Love Shack” comes with a wild groove that’ll send everyone in the room dancing along with you. 

“Summer Nights” – John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John 

If you’re into the classics, you’d be familiar with this song. “Summer Nights” is a pop number from the musical Grease which became a worldwide hit in the summer of 1978.

In this song, the protagonists Danny and Sandy are talking about their summer love to their friends.

Danny brags about the physical aspects of the relationship, including Sandy’s appearance, whereas Sandy discusses her feelings about Danny. 

This song doesn’t go hard with the vocals, but it does with its playful lyrics and energetic melody.

It’s also a great song for your friends to join in too! 

“Schadenfreude” – Natalie Venetia Belcon and Rick Lyon

Featured in the musical Avenue Q, “Schadenfreude” is a sassy song about delighting in the suffering of others, just like the title.

The musical is pretty unique as it’s an adaptation of Sesame Street and other puppeteering shows with more adult themes. 

Though this song isn’t the most romantic number to sing with your partner, it makes up for being an amusing one with a bouncy melody and creative lyrics. 

“I’m on a Boat” – The Lonely Island ft. T-Pain

First featured as an SNL digital short, “I’m on a Boat” is a humorous parody of rap songs and videos, particularly the trope of sailing on a yacht.

The absurd song is peppered with mentions of excessive swearing, drinking, and display of wealth. 

While its lyrics aren’t much, the synths and melody make it a pretty great bop.

To really sell this song, get your partner to rap along while you aggressively sing the lyrics. 

“Barbie Girl” – Aqua 

Every person who’s gone to karaoke would likely come across this song.

Released in 1997 by the Danish group Aqua, “Barbie Girl” is a satire that relates femininity and Barbie dolls.

In the song, Barbie sings about letting anyone handle her as they please while Ken makes naughty comments at her. 

With its catchy melody and repetitive lyrics, this song is a certified crowd-pleaser that would get your audience onto the dance floor.

If you want to add more gusto to your performance, try singing in squeaky-high notes like Barbie does. 

“We Built This City” – Starship 

Dubbed as one of the worst songs ever, “We Built This City” is a song by the rock band Starship.

It’s basically a complaint about the shutting down of live-performance clubs during the 1980s. 

Though it’s less on the comedic side, its upbeat rhythm and straightforward lyrics make it an enjoyable song to sing.

It’s also a great chance to unleash your inner rockstar out.

“Uptown Funk” – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

The song is pretty straightforward, with its dance-floor rhythm and catchy lyrics that’ll make you want to bring your uptown funk into the room. 

“Africa” – Toto 

Released in 1982, “Africa” is a soft-rock number by the rock band Toto.

As the title goes, the song is about a man’s narrow fascination with the continent of Africa.

David Paich, one of the band’s members, based the lyrics on a documentary depicting the suffering of the African people. 

Being a simple song, it has a heartfelt, feel-good melody complete with groovy synths and the pleasant tune of traditional instruments like the kalimba and gamelan. 

“The Llama Song” – Go Noodle and MooseTube 

To put it simply, this song is a whacky number about different types of llamas.

The absurdity doesn’t end with llamas though.

The lyrics are also made up of a bunch of words strung into amusing phrases. 

With its silly beat and overall whimsical vibe, it’s a great song to sing along with your partner when you’re getting tipsy. 

“Anyone Else but You” – The Moldy Peaches 

Originally from the indie rock band The Moldy Peaches (yup, that’s its name), this song picked up in popularity after being featured as a track in the 2007 film Juno

“Anyone Else but You” is a delicate love song with a soft melody that makes you think of first love.

The lyrics are quite hilarious too, going back and forth between cute to simply comical.

With this song, you’re guaranteed to get the warm fuzzies. 

“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” – Elmo and Patsy 

As silly as the title sounds, this song is actually a novelty Christmas song performed by the couple Elmo and Patsy in 1979.

This is a great humorous karaoke pick, especially during the Christmas season!

The lyrics are also cheeky enough to earn a few giggles from your partner and audience. 

“The Tennis Song” – David Zypel and Cy Coleman

“Push It” – Salt-N-Pepa 

“Push It” is a well-known 1987 hip-hop track from the group Salt-N-Pepa.

It’s been featured in TV shows, like Glee and Brooklyn 99.

The message of the song has been mistaken for intercourse, but the group insists it’s just about dancing.

They aren’t exactly wrong because the song has such a catchy beat that you’d want to start busting a move to it.

While the lyrics are easy to remember, you need to sing the right amount of “push its” to nail the song. 

“Anything You Can Do” – Betty Hutton and Howard Keel

First featured in the musical Annie Get Your Gun in 1946, “Anything You Can Do” describes the protagonists Annie and Frank attempting to outdo each other in different difficult tasks. 

This heated musical will leave you and your partner in stitches with its competitive lyrics and wacky rhythm.

You can even amp up the performance by bringing out the drama queen in you. 

“Baby, You Got What It Takes” – Dinah Washington and Brook Benton

This swanky number was a monster hit for singers Dinah and Brook in 1960, peaking at number one on the Billboard R&B chart. 

It’s less comical in nature, but it’s a great romantic duet with a sprinkling of playful teasing accompanied by a bouncy melody. 

“Nothing Is Too Wonderful to Be True” – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels 

Originally from the 2004 musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, this track is a romance-slash-comedy duet performed by the main characters Christine and Freddy.

Freddy tries to swindle Christine out of her money but is dragged into her idealistic ballad about the wonderful things in life. 

While Freddy’s part is easy, Christine’s part goes pretty high, so you’d want to do some warm-ups before performing this song.

Otherwise you can just wing it and have fun singing with your partner.
