The Everly Brothers', "Devoted To You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Darling you can count on me,
til the sun dries up the sea
Why They're Nonsensical:
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.

Tom Tom Club's, "Genius Of Love"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
iscup handra huta hishki
icup handra huta hi
icup hanti husic handra huta hila
kosaba handro uish kindro aya
- or -
iko pa handra hoo kuh-haish kay
iko pa handra hoo kuh hay
iko pantsee hootsee kandra roo hoota ra hindra
ko saba handa ruish kendro wya
Why They're Nonsensical:
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.

Cats Can Fly's, "Flippin' to the A-Side "
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Flippin' to the 'A' Side
Livin' on the B Side
Nothin' on the B side
Lovin' on the wayside
To the 'A' side
Why They're Nonsensical:
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.

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And doing things I can't even talk about
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually, the First Amendment says you can.

Foxy Brown and Nas', "Affirmative Action"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
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
Why They're Nonsensical:
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!

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!
