Jim Reeves', "Bottle, Take Effect"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then just lead me to those lights of blue on the corner of regret.
Why They're Nonsensical:
What shape is regret, that it has any corners? Triangular, square, or pentagonal? Or maybe even a cube or a dodecahedron?

The Spinners', "One of a Kind (Love Affair)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I never thought about today would come
When she would leave without goodbye

Cheryl Lynn's, "Got To Be Real"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo,
I got to have it, baby.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is repeated a few times during the bridge part of the song (although some radio stations play it totally instrumentally). I have no idea what the hell it means; maybe she couldn't think of a proper filler and decided to use random scat syllables? They don't mean anything. And what is "it" that she's "got to have"? (She doesn't specify.)

Papa Roach's, "Last Resort"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

Even if we're six feet underground I know that we'll be safe and sound

If you're six feet under, you're DEAD. Therefore, you're not safe.
Submitted by: Amanda
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Man, it's a hot one.
Like seven inches from the midday sun.

If you're seven inches from the sun, it's going to be "a hot one" regardless of whether it's morning, midday or evening on Earth.

Ben E. King's, "Stand By Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall...

Why "the sky that we look upon"? From where we're standing there's only one sky, whether we look upon it or not.
