Petula Clark's, "Downtown"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you,
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Sorry, but no two people are just alike.

Petula Clark's, "Downtown"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Why They're Nonsensical:
The sounds of traffic (running engines, honking car horns, squealing tires, etc.) are not music, even at the time this song was made.

Petula Clark's, "I Know A Place"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Every day when the work is behind you,
and the shop and the store
put the lock on the door
Why They're Nonsensical:
So the buildings themselves lock up their doors, without the aid of people doing said task? I don't get it.
