In 1980, while Kenny Rogers was hot on the charts, I stepped off a bus, when one of my boots fell apart at the bottom.
Without thinking, I said to myself, audibly, 'You picked a fine time to leave me, loose heel.....'

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Gambler"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
On a warm summer's evenin',
on a train bound for nowhere
Why They're Nonsensical:
Do trains ever really run without any destination? I've certainly never heard of a train bound for nowhere. After all, unlike cars or trucks, which one can drive around aimlessly and turn on a whim, trains are on tracks directing them somewhere in particular.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

The Misrhymed Lyrics:
After she left us, I ordered more whiskey
Why They're Misrhymed:
ok, so there are some rhymes in this song and I know Kenny didn't intend these lines to rhyme. But whenever I heard this song I just wanted to sing, 'After she left us, I ordered more breakfast.'
Submitted by: Lisa Green-Douglass

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Through the Years"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I can't remember when you weren't there
when I didn't care for anyone but you
Why They're Inappropriate:
The lyrics, tangled as they are, amount to the statement 'I don't care for you, and I can't remember ever *having* cared for you'.
Submitted by: Mary-O

The Song Lyrics:
Who knows, I'm liable to take a song from the Bible

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Through the Years"
The Lyrics:
I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you.
I think Kenny means he can't remember a time when he DID care for anyone but the woman he's serenading, but what he SAYS is the exact opposite - i.e. "Honey, I can't remember a time when I wasn't in love with somebody else, but it was never with you."
