Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Missing You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I ain't missing you at all.
Why They're Nonsensical:
...after saying he misses her terribly. It does make sense to me (he's trying to convince himself that he doesn't care), but not to anyone else I've talked to (who, apparently, took the contradiction literally).

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Missing You"
The Lyrics:
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone away.
Why:
Grammatical Mistake #1: 'I ain't instead of 'I'm not'. Grammatical Mistake #2: It should be 'went away' instead of 'been gone away'.
