Roger Miller sang/wrote lines like that all the time. He was great.

My personal fav is a ditty that goes

My trousers are held up by a piece of twine
(not real polite snip)
So say you're mine, and pull that twine.

There's more, but you get the idea.

Just in passing, Yes I/we listen to that kind of music all the time (too.)

Roger Miller, the late country singer, whistled on the tune "England Swings"

I have never forgiven him for `England swings like a pendulum DO.  HJow can
anyone write or sing a line like that?
