James Taylor's, "Fire And Rain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Why They're Nonsensical:
Usually when somebody says they thought something "would never end," it refers to something unpleasant. As in, "my professor's lecture was really boring today. I thought it would never end." Only James Taylor uses the expression to refer to something pleasant. Why would you be in a hurry for a sunny day to end?

James Taylor's, "Fire And Rain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well there's hours of time on the telephone line
to talk about things to come.
Sweet dreams and flying machines
in pieces on the ground
Why They're Nonsensical:
That sounds like a very boring conversation. If I were on the other line, I'd hang up. Why does that have to take for hours?

James Taylor's, "Handy Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Comma comma comma comma com-com.
Yeah...yeah, yeah.
Why They're Nonsensical:
He repeats these lines over and over during the end of the song. Why?? What do they mean?? Did he just decide to use a random filler or something?

James Taylor's, "Shower the People"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When you're all by yourself alone
Why They're Nonsensical:
Can you be all by yourself together? (This line is a tautology - a phrase from the department of redundancy department!)
