Tom Jones', "It's Not Unusual"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's not unusual to go out at any time,
But when I see you out and about it's such a crime.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Is either the singer or the addressee or both an escaped convict? No such thing is implied by any other part of the song, but that is pretty much what it would take for any crime to be implied in the addressee's being out and about or the singer's being out and about to see the addressee out and about. The crime in that cad would be breaking out of prison, bot nothing about the song makes sense of any such inference, so the lines are for that reason nonsensical.

Bobby Darin's, "It's Only A Paper Moon"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Without your love,
It's a honky-tonk parade.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song came out in 1933, and has been done by various artists, notably including Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole. I've cited the Bobby Darin version (which came out in 1966) because the submission form is still not set up to cite a proper decade for performances before the 1950s or after 2009. I know what a honky-tonk is, and I know what a parade is. But mix the two, and I draw a blank on what the term might mean. I've looked up "honky-tonk parade" and most of the hits are for this line in this song. So this song seems to be the origin of the term and offers no explanation therein as to what a honky-tonk parade might be. The principal exception I found to those hits is a song named "Honky Tonk Parade", written and recorded by Billy Gilman. Billy Gilman wasn't born until 1988. So however clever his song may be, it is at best an attempted explanation after the fact when it comes to trying to explain a baffling phrase in a song that first came out in 1933. In fact, Gilman's song makes several references to things all predated by any 1933 song, including Disneyland, Spiderman, and Snoopy.

James Taylor's, "Handy Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Comma comma comma comma com-com.
Yeah...yeah, yeah.
Why They're Nonsensical:
He repeats these lines over and over during the end of the song. Why?? What do they mean?? Did he just decide to use a random filler or something?

Britney Spears', "Email My Heart"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Email my heart
And say our love will never die!
Why They're Nonsensical:
OK. I've got one thing to ask you Britney: how do hearts receive emails?!?!?!? If this is your attempt to sound romantic, you've failed!

Rebecca Black's, "Friday (2010s)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today it is Friday, Friday.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Wow. How BELITTLING is this lyric?!?! Learning about the days of the week by singing a cute song works when you're like FOUR. Maybe one day, Rebecca Black will get to second grade and sing to us about the months of the year!

Nicki Minaj's, "Your Love"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When I was a geisha, he was a samurai
Somehow, I understood him when he spoke Thai
Why They're Nonsensical:
OK. A geisha and a samurai MIGHT have crossed paths at some point, I'm guessing. But, I doubt they would be speaking Thai! It's like Nicki Minaj's songwriters thought, "Here's a wild idea! Let's take all the words we can think of relating to Asia and run them through!"

One Direction's, "More Than This (2010s)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
If I'm louder, would you see me?
Why They're Nonsensical:
This doesn't make sense, because you don't see with your ears. It should be "If I'm louder, would you hear me?"

The Coasters', "Yakety Yak"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Yakety yak
Don't talk back
Why They're Nonsensical:
It's as if he's mocking himself.

The Four Tops', "7-Rooms Of Gloom"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
All the windows are painted black
And wait right here till you come back
Why They're Nonsensical:
If the wife/girlfriend in the song did come back, how would Levi Stubbs have seen her coming through windows that were painted black?

Spoons', "Tell No Lies"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I know
I know
You could take me for a ride
and I wouldn't even know it
I know
I know I'm vulnerable
But what can I do?
I'm new at this game of trust
Why They're Nonsensical:
If you know that you're already vulnerable then why the hell would you get into a situation where somebody can take advantage of your vulnerability?
