Funniest Song Lyrics:

"I Won't Spend Another Night Alone"
The Funny Lyrics:
We'd buy a small house in south central L.A. Raise lots of kids then we'd both join a gang Just as long as we're together. The things you make me wanna do I'd rob a quik-e mart for you I'd go to the pound and let all the cats go free Just as long as you'd be with me.
Why They're Funny:
who wants their boyfriend to set the cats free for them.. 'oh honey i love you so much' 'as do I love you. I have one small favor to ask.' 'what's that?' 'i wish you'd go to the pound and sets the cats free!'

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Radio #2"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You're always talkin' (it's never ending)
It's about time that we turned off the radio
Call the request lines and tell them that it's over
You're always playin' all of the same songs over and over again
It's about time that we all turned off the radio
Why They're Nonsensical:
If it weren't for the radio you wouldn't be as popular as you are right now, Ataris! I understand what you're saying, but it's somewhat hypocritical of you to have your own songs played on the radio over and over and then tell people not to listen to it.

"In Spite Of The World"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I woke up from this dream to find that I was sleeping,
so I went back to sleep and I dreamt I was awake.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Ingeniously confusing, your head hurts thinking about it!!!!

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Take Me Back"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I'm sorry that I gave you that infection
and said we had sex on the Love Connection.
Why They're Insincere:
He doesn't sound too sorry in the song. He just wants the girl to take him back so he is saying anything he possibly can to get her to do so.
