Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Margaritaville"
The Funny Lyrics:
Don't know the reason, stayed here all season
Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutey
How it got here, I haven't a clue
Why They're Funny:
Simply a gorgeously graphic and insouciant description for having been out of one's head.
Submitted by: John

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Margaritaville"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
but I don't. It's my own damned fault.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why would you claim to blame a woman for getting wasted?
Submitted by: Celeste
"Cheeseburger In Paradise"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Why They're Nonsensical:
The pickle doesn't have to be "kosher" if eating a cheeseburger with it. A cheeseburger itself is not kosher - Orthodox Jewish People never eat meat and dairy together. Therefore, those who do consume cheeseburgers are not even eating a kosher meal at all; the pickle makes no difference.
