Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Comfort Eagle"
The Funny Lyrics:
Doesn't matter if you're skinny,
Doesn't matter if you're fat
You can dress up like a sultan in your Onion Head Hat
Why They're Funny:
I may be missing something here, but 'Onion Head Hat'? Every time I listen to this song, I get this vision of a fat guy with a giant, hollowed-out onion on his head, dancing around. It is rather scary...
Submitted by: Guest #4
"The Distance"
The Funny Lyrics:
The sun has gone down, and the moon has come up
and long ago somebody left with the cup,
but he's driving, and striving, and hugging the turns
and thinking of someone for whom he still burns...
Why They're Funny:
The whole song is about a guy who's lost a race (and is, in fact, in dead-last position), but he still wants to actually cross the finish line. also, a couple of lyrics just before the ones above says, "the fans get up and they get out of town/the arena is empty, except for one man..." uhh, if everyone else has left, why don't you? it's just the image of some guy still racing even when the winners have been declared and everyone's left.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Pretty Pink Ribbon"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Without the sticky little kitten
You're ticket could never be free
Why They're Nonsensical:
...Sticky...Little...Kitten? Anyone else as confused as me? I mean, sure, he could be talking about her...yeah, but..still.. Do these two lines make aaaaany sense to anyone else?
Submitted by: Katt LeGnat
 

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"She'll Come Back to Me"
The Insincere Lyrics:
She'll come back to me.
Why They're Insincere:
He knows she won't come back. Later lyrics in the song: "She never came. She never even called."
Submitted by: RevengeFromMars YouTube
 

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Frank Sinatra"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
The flies and spiders get along together,
Cobwebs fall on an old skipping record.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Did you bother to look up the word 'cobweb'?
A cobweb is a spiderweb that is old, has dried up and lost its sticky coating, and is not being occupied/used by a spider anymore.
So the statement makes perfect sense; The only webs that exist are old, dried up ones that are not being used to trap flies anymore. It's the equivalent of sword hilts with the blades rusted off.

"Frank Sinatra"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
The flies and spiders get along together, Cobwebs fall on an old skipping record.
Why They're Inappropriate:
surely if the flies and spiders got along, the spiders would not make cobwebs
