Q. How did I get fooled by the girl I thought loved me? A. She made me feel misty alright, but how was I to know that when she walked my way, only 999 violins began to play?

It's beginning to look a lot like Aldi

Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door

Funniest Song Lyrics:

The Funny Lyrics:
Walk my way,
And a thousand violins begin to play.
Why They're Funny:
Oh, how that makes true love such a hard thing to call. So often have I been deceived in my search for true love when someone walked my way and only 999 violins began to play! Hilarious.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"A Certain Smile"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
A certain smile, a certain face
Can lead an unsuspecting heart on a merry chase
Why They're Nonsensical:
Hearts can't be suspecting or unsuspecting, and they can't chase anyone or anything.
Submitted by: Candy Welty
"Wonderful, Wonderful"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You turn to me with a kiss in your eyes
Why They're Nonsensical:
And why not a gaze in her lips while she's at it?
Submitted by: Heather Patton
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Small World"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
We have so much in common, it's a phenomenon
Why They're Misrhymed:
Would have worked as a rhyme, except for that troublesome last syllable of 'phenomenon', which just dangles there without being part of the rhyme.
Submitted by: Heather Patton

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Merry Christmas"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Santa Claus will stop,
And I know he'll drop
Exactly what you wanted
From your chimney top.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Gee, hope that "exactly what you wanted" isn't breakable! This isn't the usual Santa Claus story. In the usual version he comes down the chimney with what you want (If you're nice, at least!) and puts it in your stocking. I like the usual version better! This song as a whole isn't bad, but it probably is my least favorite on Mathis' cd album called "Winter Wonderland."
