Eagles', "New Kid In Town"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
They will never forget you until somebody new comes along.
Why They're Nonsensical:
The word "never" doesn't work here. They're basically saying something will never happen...until it does.

The Osborne Brothers', "Rocky Top"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top.
Dirt's too rocky by far.
. That's why all the folks on Rocky Top
Get their corn from a jar.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is totally begging the question. If corn won't grow on Rocky Top, then all corn that ever gets there has to be transported from elsewhere. That is true whether corn that gets there is eaten off the cob there or processed into moonshine (the "corn from a jar") at any point. Either way it has to be transported to Rocky Top in some form, wherever it is processed into any corn product. "Corn in a jar" is either transported to Rocky Top already in that form, or else corn (as picked off the stalks) is transported there and then made into corn mash, which is subsequently distilled into the "corn" that comes "from a jar". If corn won't grow there, that is only incidental to the fact that corn is processed somewhere into the corn "from a jar" and in turn consumed on Rocky Top.

Pee Shy's, "Little Dudes"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Where are you little dude?
Don't you know I'm in love with you?
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why would the singer be in love with a little dude? Is this "little dude" a young'un? To me this doesn't make a whole lotta sense.

Backstreet Boys', "As Long As You Love Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
Why They're Nonsensical:
I don't think the person got him blind. As far as I know, all the members of Backstreet Boys could see just fine at the time they recorded this. (IOW, none were legally blind or even close yet.)

The Kinks', "Come Dancing"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And there's a car park where the Palais used to stand
Why They're Nonsensical:
Contradicts a line in the first stanza: "Before that, they put up a bowling alley, on the site that used to be the local Palais" (So what happened to the bowling alley?)

Elvis Presley's, "Kentucky Rain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
Why They're Nonsensical:
There are no "towns" in Kentucky; all incorporated municipalities in the state are officially referred to as "cities".

Prince's, "Let's Go Crazy"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's an electric word, life
It means forever, and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you,
There's something else: the afterworld
Why They're Nonsensical:
If life is forever, then when do you get to the afterworld?

Dan Hartman's, "We Are The Young"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Every street is an arcade of dreams
Why They're Nonsensical:
How wonderful it would be if it was true. However, it's not...:-(
Submitted by: Mads.
Seal's, "Kiss From A Rose"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And did you know, that when it snows,
my eyes become large,
and the light that you shine can be seen.
Why They're Nonsensical:
What?? How do your eyes become larger when it snows? Do your pupils get all dilated when you see the little white flakes falling down?
