Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Come To My Window"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Come to my window, I'll be home soon.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why is she telling [whoever] to 'come to my window' yet later on she says 'I'll be home soon'? Apparently, she seems to be asking for a robber to show up!
Submitted by: Dyan Cannonball

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"I Want To Come Over"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I know you're home
You left your light on
You know I'm here
The night is thin
I know you're alone
I watched the car leave
Your lover is gone
Let me in
Why They're Inappropriate:
Basically the entire song is inappropriate, but I selected these particular lyrics. I love this song, but are people even aware of what the words about? It's about when Melissa Etheridge was having an affair with Lou Diamond Phillips' wife!!!

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Not revealing the gender of her songs' subjects"
An out-and-proud lesbian (practically) from the start, Ms. Etheridge made a voluntary decision to not use gendered terms for the subjects of her famous love ballads. She claims that she did not do this out of shame, but because she did not wish to alienate listeners so that anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, could relate to her music, which seems to have worked given her large fan base.
