Basically post up any song lryric(s) that doesn't make any sense to you!

Meatloaf 'I would do anything for love, but I won't do that..'

Do what? Much on the fish cake? Compliment the mother in law? Invite her ex around for some severe love making?

Slade 'So here it is merry Christmas, everybody's having fun, look to the future now, it's only just begun'

Is this not the laziest lyric you have ever heard? 'err what rhymes with fun...err..begun' What's just begun? Christmas? Do we only look to the future at Chrimbo time? I don't get it!!

Over to you!

Cheers Guys.

Procol Harum...please explain WTF "Whiter Shade of Pale" was all about???

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, 'There is no reason
And the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might have just as well've been closed

The Spice Girls 'I want a zigazigah'

A what? Is that some kind of innuendo for a Cuban sex toy?

Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilot,
One that smiled when he flew over the bay,
Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilot,
One that smiled when he flew over the bay.

My horse, is a shackled old man,
His, his remorse, was that he couldn't survey,
The skies, right before,
Right before they went gray,
My horse and my remorse,
Flying over a great bay

Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilot,
One that smiled when he flew over the bay,
Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilot,
One that smiled when he flew over the bay.

My, source, is the source of all creation,
Her, discourse, is that we all don't survey
The skies, right before,
Right before they go gray,
My source, and my remorse,
Flying over a great bay,

According to Brandon Flowers, the lyrics make reference to a comment by author Hunter S Thompson who said America was raising "a generation of dancers" hence The Killers chose a dance beat for the song's music.

What about that awful nineties record that had a woman singing "What's she gonna look like with a chimney on her?" Seems a bit harsh to smack someone over the head with an entire chimney...

Yeah I heard that Cari, it's till nonsenical because it's singular "dancer" rather than "dancers" as well.

This song by Deep Purple was written after spending the afternoon in a pub

Black night it's not right,
I don't feel so bright,
I don't care to sit tight.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.

I don't need a dark tree,
I don't want a rough sea,
I can't feel, I can't see.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black knight is a long way from home.

Black night, black night,
I don't need black night,
I can't see dark night.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.

Beatles - I Am The Walrus

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye,
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy you've been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down

I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus,
Goo goo ga-joob


Um...riiiiight. Shocked Headscratch

Worst lyric ever.

Made worse by the suprising amount of people who like that song

It gives me an image of an American army recruitment office, with James Brown sat behind the big desk - and a line of people walking past whilst he judges their suitability to be soldiers

He's got soul brother - he's in
He's got soul brother - he's in
Man that brother ain't got soul - boot camp
He's got soul brother - he's in.

Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball -- Champagne Supernova

I love Oasis and Champagne Supernova, but I don't know why Noel G couldn't find a better, more sensical line than that to put in there. He can be a little wayward lyrically sometimes...but his new song seems coherent enough.

Watch the evening news.

Irrelevant to the discussion, you just got me thinking of The Office!

Many (most?) can be excused by an over-abundance of LSD or alcohol.

And if Whiter Shade of Pale is nonsense, what about Stairway to Heaven?
Great song, but the lyrics are meaningless (other than Rolf Harris's asking if anyone remembers 'Miss Given' Wink ).

Its the End of the World as We Know It - REM

Thats great, it starts with an earthquake,
Birds and snakes and aeroplanes,
Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs,
Feed it off an aux speak, grunt "No strength!",
The ladder starts to clatter, with the fear fight, down height,
Wire in a fire, representing seven games, with a government for hire, in a combat site.
Left of West and coming in a hurry, with the furies breathing down your neck.

what about Madonna's "Shanti/Ashtangi" - sounds alright in Hindi but in English...

I worship the gurus' lotus feet
Awakening the happiness of the self revealed
Beyond comparison, working like the jungle physician
To pacify loss of consciousness from the poison of existence
In the form of a man up to the shoulders
Holding a conch, discus and sword
Thousand headed, white
I bow respectfully
Peace

Dislocated by Gillan,Glover from the album Accidently on Purpose
Mine's a double
In a china shop
Around the round
The corner
There was no corner
There was no street light
There was no whiskey
There was no bar
Takamine
High to eye
Believing well alone
My guitar
There was no guitar
There was no music
There was no lipstick
There was no bra
Dislocated. dislocated,dislocated,dislocated......
The write of the lyrics Ian Gillan says "please don't try and make any sense out of it."

The Cocteau Twins are pretty renowned for their odd lyrics - mainly because singer Liz Fraser would improvise at the mic during recording. They wrote some superb melodies though, and her voice was very unique and you can't really decipher what she's singing (thankfully). Here's an example (Cherry Coloured Funk):

Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam our unstable eyes and glass
Not get passed off through my bird lips as good news
Still we can find our love down from behind
Down far behind this fabulous, my turn rules
Beetles and eggs and blues and bells and eggs and then blues
Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam our unstable eyes and glass
Not get passed off through my bird lips as good news
You'll have the hardest black and dullest knife
We hanged your pass and start being as you in ecstasty
Still being cried and laughed at before
Should I be sewn in hugged I can by not saying
Still being cried and laughed at from light to blue
And should I be hugged and tugged down through this tiger's masque
And should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
You mind not saying
He'll have the hardest black and dullest ignite
Still being cried and laughed at from behind me, from gains
We hanged your pass and star being as you in ecstasy
Still being cried and laughed at from behind me, from gains
Should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
Still being cried and laughed at from behind me, from gains
Hugged and tugged down through this tiger's masque for key

It would be interesting to see if there is an explanation of these lyrics or as you say they are the just a result of a improvised session. Sometimes it is interesting to know the inspiration or reason of a song and how the song came into being.

Bing bing bang a bong a bong bing bang a ticky ticky thought of a gun
Bing bip bip a bop bop boom bam ticky ticky through the day

Here's the video so you can sing along Very Happy
