Songs to sign along with!

I'm learning sign language, and I thought it'd be fun to practice by making music videos. I'm hearing, but I'd like my videos to be interesting even without sound. Know any suitable songs for this?
I'm looking for...

- Songs that have lyrics right the way through. No long instrumental periods where I'll just be standing around looking awkward.
- Moderately fast songs. (By that I mean: not so slow that I'm holding the same sign for more than a few seconds, nor so fast that my hands become an incomprehensible blur!)
- Lyrics that don't rely on the use of too many synonyms or obscure words. I'm learning NZSL
and the vocabulary is pretty limited.
-The genre doesn't matter, but it probably helps if it's funny, has a lot of emotion or tells a story...or all three
. (And please don't recommend more
Jonathan Coulton...I already know about those!)
