Paul Simon's, "Allergies"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But my heart is allergic
To the women I love
And it's changing the shape of my face
Why They're Nonsensical:
A heart can't be allergic to women, and it can't change the shape of a person's face.

Paul Simon's, "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And I could go 'whoo hoo ooo ooo, ooo ooo ooo ooo'
And everyone would know what I was talking about
I mean everybody here would know exactly what I was talking about.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually, Paul, I don't think anyone would know what you're talking about if you go 'whoo hoo ooo ooo, ooo ooo ooo ooo'; they'd be confused.

Paul Simon's, "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Waung a lak a lak a lay ganja
Why They're Nonsensical:
My guess is somebody tried to talk with their mouth full of olives, and all they could get out was this jibberish. I mean, it's one thing to scat, but this doesn't sound like scat singing.

Paul Simon's, "You Can Call Me Al"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
He doesn't speak a language, he holds no currency.
He says Amen and Hallelujah!
Why They're Nonsensical:
How does he say that if he doesn't speak a language? This logic is inconsistent. Clearly the guy in question is speaking English!
