Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows... This is a classic Beatles number but has only been parodied twice so far on Amiright.com (Maybe we'll find out why) (Comments & Parodies)

Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Elton John's, "Rocket Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids,
in fact, it's cold as hell.
And there's no one there to raise them
If you did.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is so packed with nonsense it's funny. It's not cold in hell and the "if" condition is an impossibility ("if you did" raise the kids on Mars) because Elton already established that there's nobody to raise them there.

Whoa the letters have dropped off, though they say you got them all
I finally figured out some things you'll never know
Why They're Insulting:
It seems rather cruel and very insulting to brag and say "I figured out some things you'll never know". Why insult a person to say you figured out "things" that the person will never know instead of confessing and sharing them? It's mean to rub it in!
