They're shootin' little kids with toy guns.
The grammar here is actually ambiguous. Are the shooters armed with toy guns, or are the little kids armed with toy guns? If the shooters have the guns, then this is a misplaced modifier, implying that the kids are the ones with the toy guns.

Have you heard the news that you're dead?
No one ever had much nice to say
I think they never liked you anyway
1) If someone was dead, I'd think they'd know it. 2) Additionally, if they were dead, they couldn't hear you (unless they were already in heaven, then they might hear you) 3) [Speaking sarcastically] That's a real touching send-off. ("I think they never liked you anyway") These guys are just NUTS!

What you puttin' in your nose, is that where all your money goes?
I've never been a Prince fan (can't stand him) but this line in this song has always made me laugh. The fact that the sound of his voice is electronically altered just makes it even funnier. Cocaine reference obviously. But seriously don't do drugs people!

And there isn't any name that I can't rhyme
Uhm... you do realize that using certain names (such as Chuck, Richard, Maggie, Bart) could lead to obscenities or other objectionable words? Also, what if a certain name contains more than 3 syllables? It would be kinda difficult to sing it that quickly. (Note: I am submitting this entry to this section since there's nowhere else it can really fit.)

Got my mama in the kitchen, she bitchin, bitchin, bitchin.
So I made my proclamation to control my masturbation.
Sounds like his mom walked in on him pleasuring himself one too many times, and now she's bitchin' about it!

I take 1....
(later) and 7,7, no no no tomorrow
and 8,8, I forget what 8 was for....
but 9,9, 9, for the lost cause
This is just hilarious....cuz you have no idea where it's coming from. Especially on the line about #8 (after he names off the first seven).

We would have such a very good time, such a fine time,
Such a happy time
The way they say the word 'Happy' is so great! Also the way it's always 'something' time! Love this song!

Oh dear god this is the most pitiful lyric I have ever heard. It just cracks me up. It's the way they take it so seriously...

Dah-dah-dah-de dah-de-dah-de dah dah dah- dah-dum
Every time I hear scat filler lines, like this, I can't help but think, was the singer really unsure how to fill up that part of the song? That especially applies to this particular song...but in a sense I actually enjoy it.
