Add a word, ruin a song

I’m a huge fan of BBC Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue*, which is the most reliably funny half hour on radio anywhere, and they play this game, as well as the related “Ruin/Improve a Film or TV series Title By Adding One Word”. So let’s do the same to song titles!

Tell Laura I Love Her Mother (brother, father, poodle, whatever)
Theme From Elevator Shaft
Send In the Rodeo Clowns
I Will Probably Always Love You
The Carnival Ride of the Valkyries
Defying Gravity Falls
Billy, Don’t Be a Hero Sandwich
Cool Whip It
Fiddler Crab on the Roof
On A Clear Day You Can See Batman Forever

Alas for movies that have a song with the same title! I’m surprised ‘Lady Sings the Blues Clues’ wasn’t over there too…
