Simon And Garfunkel's, "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hello lamp post whatcha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing
Why They're Nonsensical:
1) Why would you sing to a lamp post? It's an inanimate object, for pete's sake! 2) Why would flowers be associated with such an object?

Why They're Nonsensical:
What zoo features hamsters and pigeons?

Simon And Garfunkel's, "Punky's Dilemma"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wish I was an English muffin ...
I love Boysenberry more than any ordinary jam
I'm a citizens for Boysenberry jam fan
Why They're Nonsensical:
The whole song is completely random. They're indicating that they are singing cornflakes, then jam-fan muffins, then a lieutenant... And nothing is related to the title.

Simon And Garfunkel's, "The Boxer"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Asking only workman's wages, I go looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Just one question: If he had no job, how did he pay them?
