Nonsensical Song Lyrics, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Bon Jovi's, "One Wild Night"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
If you lose this role, I take your girlfriend home
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why are Jon and the addressee betting this guy's girlfriend and if he wins, why is he implying he wants to have sex with her? Does he want Dorothea to kick him out?
Submitted by: Dayna
Bon Jovi's, "Lay Your Hands On Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm a fighter, I'm a poet, I'm a preacher
Why They're Nonsensical:
Unless Jon has met preachers with some serious anger issues, I doubt it's thought of as a very violent profession.
