"Happy Holidays/The Holiday Season"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's the holiday season,
So hoop-de-doo and dickery dock
And don't forget to hang up your sock
'Cause just exactly at 12 o'clock
He'll be comin' down the chimney down
Why They're Nonsensical:
Where to begin? 1.) The hoop-de-doo line sounds like he was desperate for a rhyme/filler and threw it in at the last second. 2.) 'Comin' down the chimney down' is a wee bit repetitive. 3.) How is Santa going to be coming down everybody's chimney at exactly 12:00? He can't possibly be ubiquitous!

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
There'll be scary ghost stories
Why They're Inappropriate:
Ghost stories? On Christmas? Oh wait, there's a segment of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in which the protagonist, Ebenezer Scrooge, deals with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future... but ghost stories in general are not usually associated with Christmas; the scariest ones are usually tied in with Halloween!!

Made Up Words in Songs:

"The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
The Made Up Words:
Mistletoeing
Comments:
Lyrics say "There'll be much mistletoeing and hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near." If "mistletoe" were a verb, then "mistletoeing" would be its present participle. But since "mistletoe" is not a verb, there is no such word as "mistletoeing".

"The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
The Lyrics:
With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling
You, "Be of good cheer".
Why:
I've checked a dictionary, and it IS possible for the word "bell" to be a verb occasionally. It just isn't a verb with a meaning anywhere closely resembling its intended implications in these lyrics. It can be a transitive verb, with a meaning of "to put a bell on", as for example, putting a cowbell on a cow could be called "belling a cow". Transitive verbs are sometimes used with implied but unstated direct objects. But in that case the usage will generally be in a context that makes clear what the unstated direct object is. And in this case there is no clearly implied direct object to make it clear what animals or other things these kids could be putting bells on. So more likely it should be considered an intransitive verb. But the possible meaning of "bell" as an intransitive verb is indicated to be "flaring out into the shape of a bell". But of course these lyrics could hardly imply that the kids are morphing into a bell shape. Of course, since it says "jingle belling", the grammatically proper meaning of the verb "bell" as so modified could be argued to lose the implication of flaring out, but instead mean turning into the shape of a jingle bell. But either way, it could only be a ludicrous gaffe for the song to come across as saying that the kids are morphing into the shape of bells, jingle bells or otherwise!

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Stranger On The Shore"
The Lyrics:
Here I stand, watching the tide roll out,
So all alone and blue, just dreaming dreams of you.
I watched your ship as it sailed out to sea,
Taking all my dreams and taking all of me.
The sighing of the waves, the wailing of the wind,
The tears in my eyes burned, pleading, "Oh, love, return!"
Oh why, oh why, must I go on like this?
Must I just be a lonely stranger on the shore?
Why:
The uncommonly beautiful melody of this song quite probably achieved its most widespread recognition through the highly successful instrumental version by clarinetist Acker Bilk. That was how I first heard the tune, and my only acquaintance with it for some time. I doubt that I'm alone in being captivated by the enchanting melody, nor in thinking that whatever words (if any) that it might have would be lilting and happy, possibly ecstatically so. But on finally hearing a vocal version, I was astounded to find that it is actually a heart-rending lament about lost love.
