Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Walk On The Wild Side"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And the colored girls go 'doot da doot da doot
da doot doo doo doot da doot dadoot da doot doo doo'...
Why They're Nonsensical:
How many black girls do you know (or white girls, for that matter, or people of any race or gender) that walk around saying 'doot da doot da doot'? I'm sorry, but this just makes no sense at all.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Caroline Says (Part One)"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Just like poison in a phial
She was often very vile
Why They're Misrhymed:
Funniest line from the most harrowing lp ever ('Berlin',1973)
Submitted by: Paul Program
"Walk On The Wild Side"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
She always kept her head
Even when she was giving head
Why They're Misrhymed:
Head and head don't rhyme. This has always bugged me.
Submitted by: Gary Ingalls

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Walk On the Wild Side"
The Dirty Lyrics:
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says, Hey babe
Take a walk on the wild side
Why They're Dirty:
The first time I heard them - which was in my parent's car, with my two older brothers and me in the back seat, and my mom, dad, and little sister in the front. Dad has the radio on the local podunk (pop 5000, farm-friendly) radio station, and they play the top 100, whether Perry Como, Ferlin Husky, or Jimi Hendrix. Lou got into the charts, and EVERYBODY got to learn about Candy and Holly. WHY the lyrics are dirty - well, basically they aren't anymore, just barely. But in 1972...

Where did Picasso come from
There's no Michelangelo coming from Pittsburgh
I hate being odd in a small town
If they star let them stare in New York City
at this pink eyed painting albino
How far can my fantasy go?
I'm no Dali coming from Pittsburgh
No adorable lisping Capote
Pittsburgh, PA (hometown of Andy Warhol, who the song is about
New York City - Warhol's adopted home
