Alanis Morissette's, "Hand In My Pocket"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm brave but I'm chickensh
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line has always baffled me. Brave and chickens**t are complete opposites; how can you be both?

Alanis Morissette's, "Ironic"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's like ten thousand spoons when all ya need is a knife
Why They're Nonsensical:
1) That's not ironic, that's just stupid
2) Who the hell has ten thousand spoons? Imagine the size of that cutlery drawer.

Alanis Morissette's, "Ironic"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down, he thought 'Well isn't this nice...'
And isn't it ironic ... don't you think
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually most of the song is nonsensical as Alanis has no concept of what irony is. The examples in the song (particularly the 2nd verse, which is listed above) are about misfortune, not irony. What would be ironic is if Mr. Play It Safe, who's afraid of flying took a bus, car or train and crashed doing that instead.
