Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Nickel Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And gamblin' is illegal in the state of mind I'm in
Why They're Nonsensical:
A person's state of mind has nothing to do with the legality of gambling.
Submitted by: Candy Welty
 

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Momma, Momma"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Momma, momma, I fear you reared me wrong.
Why They're Insincere:
I think you're right, Melanie. That's why you're singing about your mother in front of people instead of robbing banks like normal people.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Brand New Key"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out, you see
AND Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far AND For somebody who don't drive
I've been all around the world
AND I'm okay alone, but you've got something I need
Why They're Dirty:
Unless you seriously think it's a song about roller skating, it's pretty obvious what Melanie means by inviting her love interest to try his "brand new key" in her "brand new pair of roller skates." Expressions like "I go pretty far" and "I've been all around the world" underscore the point. If you still don't get it by now, go back to Radio Disney.
