Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Hands Down"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Safe in here from all the stupid questions
Hey did you get some?
Man that is so dumb
Stay quiet, Stay near, Stay close, they won't hear
So we can get some
Why They're Nonsensical:
The song is entirely redundant, or at least these lines are. First Chris says that asking if someone 'got some' is 'dumb,' but then he follows it up with the suggestion to 'get some'. It's redundant!

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Rooftops and Invitations"
The Dirty Lyrics:
The city longs well for rooftops and invitations
All lace in secret places
She moves you to touch with her hands...


Under the cold sheet
Where the welcomed touch of skin and skin will meet
Out on the inside
Where a girl's prize is at the tip of your tongue...
Why They're Dirty:
It's pretty self-explanitory. Just read them.
Submitted by: Cindy
The Dirty Lyrics:
So turn
up the corners of your lips
Bite them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment for forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'll be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away....
Why They're Dirty:
Submitted by: Sally
