Take these broken wings
and learn to fly again,
learn to live so free
How can you learn to fly again if you have broken wings?

's, "Ring Them Bells"
Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one.
How can bell-ringing prove that "God is one?" Also, is it implied that "God is a bell"?

Inconsistent tense; this line shifts from past ("got out") to future ("3 years from now").

Oh what a night
you know I didn't even know her name?
But I was never going to be the same
What a lady! What a night
Umm? You can recall the date of the night that you slept with her but you didn't even bother to learn what her name was beforehand?

Darling you can count on me,
til the sun dries up the sea
Well if the sun gets that close, we'll all be dead! Imagine making out, and while doing so, the sun gets too close all of a sudden and crisps you to a cinder while still embraced. I guess it would be kind of like Mount Vesuvius. Even so, it doesn't make sense for them to suggest that.

The above is the reason these lyrics don't make any sense. What language is this? And what do these words mean? This part of the song -- spoken at about the 3-minute mark -- has baffled me for years, and I'm sure other people wonder about it as well. Still, I find it rather laughable in a sense. (Note to the editor: This is not spam; these are just two possible transcriptions of the lyrics which I got from songfacts.com.)

Flippin' to the 'A' Side
Livin' on the B Side
Nothin' on the B side
Lovin' on the wayside
To the 'A' side
It makes no sense what context they are using the terms for, because flipping between the A and B sides implies listening to either a record or a cassette tape.

Foxy Brown and Nas', "Affirmative Action"
32 grams raw, chop it in half, get 16
We got 48, which means a whole lot of cream
Divide the profit by four, subtract it by eight
We back to 16
O.M.FG! This is the worst attempt at math ever! Moral of the story kids: if you're studying for a math test, do NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ask Foxy Brown to help you!
