'D.i.v.o.r.c.e.,' Tammy Wynette. The grand pooh-bah of spelling songs, this tear-in-the-beer country classic by a five-time divorcée -- and 'Stand by Your Man' singer -- from 1968 features "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" and five other spelled words ("T-O-Y," "S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E," "J-O-E," "C-U-S-T-O-D-Y" and "H-E-double-L"). The narrator has to spell the troublesome words so her 4-year-old son doesn't catch on, which might just be an argument for reduced education spending.
