Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"You Always Hurt The One You Love"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You always take the sweetest rose
And crush it 'til the petals fall.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I've never done anything of the sort.

[Editor's note: This song came out in the 40's, but there is no listing for that, so I used one of the other settings (country, christmas or christian).]

"Be My Life's Companion"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Be my life's companion and you'll never grow old
I'll love you so much that you'll never grow old
When there's joy in living you just never grow old
You've got to stay young 'cause you'll never grow old
Why They're Nonsensical:
People do grow old if they live long enough.
