Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Bus Stop"
The Funny Lyrics:
All the people'd stare as if we were both quite insane
Some day my name and hers are going to be the same
Why They're Funny:
Well the girl in the song must be insane, if she's going to change her name to Graham Nash. (I'm just kidding)
Submitted by: Martin
 

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Bus Stop"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Every mornin' I would see her waiting at the stop.
Sometimes she'd shop and she would show me what she bought.
All the people stared as if we were both quite insane.
Why They're Nonsensical:
What possible reason in anything reported in the first two lines above would give anyone cause to stare at the two participants in the activities as if they "were both quite insane".? Great song generally, but I'm afraid that the last line cited above is a product of desperately groping for a line to fill in to complete a chorus.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Carrie-Anne"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
People live and learn but you're still learning.
Why They're Inappropriate:
What is this supposed to mean? Is Carrie-Anne dead but still learning? That is the only way that this line can make sense. Think about it. But even if we allow for a possibility that the dead can go on learning, everything else about the song indicates that a still very much alive Carrie-Anne is being sung to. [Note: some time ago, I posted this under 'Dumb Lyrics'. But currently, for some reason, 'Dumb Lyrics' are not listed within artist summaries, they have no link to index them in the left hand lists of links, and they are not searched by the site's Google search function, making them all but inaccessible. Why?]
