Savage Garden's, "Animal Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Animals and children tell the truth
they never lie.
Which one is more human?
Why They're Nonsensical:
Because firstly children are the worst liers and animals cant speak to lie. And secondly asking which is more human out of a human and another animal is like asking which is more sausage? a sausage or a potato

Savage Garden's, "Animal Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human there's a thought now you decide
Why They're Nonsensical:
Which is more human, animals or children? Now there's a tough one. This song was popular when I lived in Russia, and people kept asking me to explain the lyrics....Gosh, they're dumb!

Savage Garden's, "I Want You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics: a chica-cherry cola
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is the exact wording on the liner notes. What the heck is a "chica-cherry cola" supposed to be? Was plain ol' "cherry cola" not sufficient enough for this line that they had to insert some nonsensical syllables as a filler or something?

Savage Garden's, "Santa Monica"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
See, on the telephone line
I am any height, I am any age I want to be
Why They're Nonsensical:
If you're talking to someone on the telephone, does your height and/or age really matter?! They can't see you, so why worry?

Savage Garden's, "The Animal Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When superstars and cannonballs
are running through your head.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Dude, if a cannonball ran through your head, you wouldn't be alive anymore, now would you?

Savage Garden's, "Truly Madly Deeply"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I wanna bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
until the sky falls down on me
Why They're Nonsensical:
If he is gonna "lay like this forever", then he's staying in one position, and there is no chance of getting to the mountain or the sea...
