Cast of 'The Little Mermaid''s, "Under The Sea"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The fish on the land ain't happy...

Since when have there been fish on land, Sebastian!?

Jan And Dean's, "Surf City"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woodie.
(Surf City, here we come)
You know it's not very cheery, it's an oldie but a goodie.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Wouldn't it need to be more cheery to really qualify it as a "goodie"?

The Beach Boys', "Surfin' Safari"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I tell you surfing's mighty wild.
It's getting bigger every day,
From Hawaii to the shores of Peru.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Between Hawaii and Peru, there's mostly open ocean. That's not where folks typically surf. I'm pretty sure that neither when the song came out, nor at any other time, all that open ocean was a place where surfing could be said to be "getting bigger every day", nor was it an any sense "mighty wild." That being said, did the group ever need to change its name from "The Beach Boys" to "The Open Ocean Boys"?

The Kingston Trio's, "Follow Now, O Shepherds"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Can this be a king? His room is but a manger.
Humbly born is He, yet safe from earthly danger.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Lovely song generally, but the part about "safe from earthly danger" never fails to baffle me. If he WERE safe from earthly danger, why would his mom and dad soon have to flee with him to Egypt, to save him from Herod's deadly wrath?

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.

Cast of 'The Little Mermaid''s, "Under The Sea"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The title itself (and numerous times it's mentioned and referenced to).
Why They're Nonsensical:
Apparently, "under the sea" as we see Sebastian singing about in the movie, is from a LAND-dweller's point of view! A real sea-dweller would rightfully refer "under" to what's BENEATH the ocean floor. Sebastian (or, realistically, the song's lyricist Howard Ashman) should have meant "INSIDE the sea"!

Ini Kamoze's, "Here Comes the Hotstepper"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm the daddy of the mac daddy
Why They're Nonsensical:
Somebody who heard this song on the radio with me once thought he was saying he is Kriss Kross's father. I don't think that is actually true.
Submitted by: David Pratter
Harry Nilsson's, "Everybody's Talkin'"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
People stopping, staring,
I can't see their faces.
Only the shadows of their eyes
Why They're Nonsensical:
Most people's eyes are too deeply embedded in their heads to cast shadows. Even if there were shadows of their eyes, how would one know that they were staring from seeing only those shadows?

Starship's, "We Built This City"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Marconi plays the mamba; listen to the radio
Why They're Nonsensical:
A mamba is a snake. Mambo is a style of music & a dance.
Submitted by: Nickster
Bee Gees', "Love You Inside Out"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Backwards and forwards with my heart hangin' out
Why They're Nonsensical:
How is Barry's heart hanging out of his body??
Submitted by: Mr. Eggman
