Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Pigs they tend to wiggle when they walk,
Their infrastructure rocks,
And the owners hate the jocks,
Wave to the camera, Which took the giant ramrod,
To raise the demon sediment/settlement, But hi-ho silver ride'
Why They're Nonsensical:
I could easily have included the entire song here. Why would a pig owner hate jocks!? How many jocks have agents anyway? How can a camera take anything other than a picture? Who cares?! Well, it actually doesn't matter in this case, because Pavement always use bizarre, disjointed lyrics, but this song really takes the biscuit.
