From my bowel
I could give you
That I made

(U can really hear "bowel"!)
Original Lyrics:
From my hands I could give you
Something that I made
From my mouth I could sing you another
brick that I laid
From my body I could show you a place God knows
Submitted by: Dorin

I don't know where the shark is,
I don't know where the park is.

I don't know where my home is

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Hey Man!"
The Funny Lyrics:
And there's a shadow in the sky
And it looks like rain
And sh*t is gonna fly once again
Why They're Funny:
wuhahahahahaha!!! Maybe this just belongs to the nonsensical lyrics?
Submitted by: Dutch_Justine
"I'm Like A Bird"
The Funny Lyrics:
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away.
I don't know where my soul is.
I don't know where my home is.
Why They're Funny:
1) Let's see your wings, Nelly. (Or do you take frequent airplane trips? Is that where the "flying away" comes from?) 2) You don't know where your soul and home are?? For some reason this part has always baffled me.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Turn Off The Light"

Turn off the light.

That's most of the song!
Submitted by: Rick

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"I Will Make U Cry"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You're gonna curse your drawers and wish you weren't a boy, yeah
Why They're Nonsensical:
'Drawers' are the technical name for underwear, yet why one would curse them due to a bad relationship is beyond me.
Submitted by: JuxtaPositionYou
"Island Of Wonder"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Island of wonder, where are you going?
Nobody knows it but it is snowing
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can I even explain why these are nonsense? We have the case of an island that seems to be rapidly moving on its own accord [tectonic plates going mad?] and then from nowhere Nelly claims that nobody knows that it's snowing. Where? Who knows? And if nobody knows, why does she know in the first place? Someone or something must've told her.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Powerless (Say What You Want.)"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
When this life is too short
To live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless
What are you going to do
Why They're Misrhymed:
Now this just a lame assed attempt at making two words that don't rhyme, rhyme.
You and do just don't rhyme and here she is attempting to make it rhyme.

[Ed's note : I can only assume your comments are a matter of perspective? Where I live I can assure you they rhyme! Also, According to the Complete Rhyming Dictionary and Poet's Craft Book (ed. Clement Wood, 1936) it does!]

"On The Radio (Remember the Days)"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Your face, the colours change from green to yellow

Song Lawsuits:

"Do It"
Timberland, who helped produced the single, was sued by a Finnish Musican after the song sounds familiar to his song, Acidjazzed Evening. Janne Suni sued Timberland for plagiarism since he never gave the all clear to simple his work, with the exception of Glenn Rune Gallefoss's arrangement for the song that was never released commercially. Gallefosse was allowed to do so after speaking with Suni on which Timberland didn't do.
