A fine little girl, she waits for me
Me catch the ship across the sea

Story about this misheard lyric by: Codi Preston D.

I thought those were the lyrics when I was young. It's hard to decipher the lyrics even now, without the lyrics in front of you. I guess that's why the FBI started a 2 year investigation into the song. Haha.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Louie Louie"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
See Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Why They're Nonsensical:
I don't know, these lines seem like a non-sequitur. Of course, the whole song seems nonsensical unless you can truly understand the words.

"Louie Louie"
Opening Lines:
Louie Louie, oh no We gotta go Aye-yi-yi-yi Louie Louie, oh baby We gotta go.
So starts probably one of the most understood lyrics songs of the 1960's, but a definite party classic. "Louie Louie" was from a true garage band (and one of the first) from Portland, Oregon named the Kingsmen (at the time, in 1963 when the song was recorded, the members were: vocalist/rhythm guitarist Jack Ely, drummer Lynn Easton, guitarist Mike Mitchell, pianist Don Galluci and bassist Bob Nordby). "Louie Louie" deliberately sung by Ely as though he was drunk reached all the way to #2 for six weeks in December 1963 and January 1964. "Louie Louie" also has one of the most memorable and probably most copied beginning guitar riffs of all time. There is still a group called the Kingsmen still around, but it isn't the same group that recorded, "Louie Louie" back in 1963.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Louie, Louie"
In 1964 fearing it contains obscene messages, then Indiana Governor Matthew Welsh attempts to ban the song. An FCC review of the song determines the song's lyrics are indecipherable.
