Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in this town
Why They're Nonsensical:
Uh, I'm not too sure on the geography of your town, but I'd be willing to bet that the jailbreak is going to occur at the, um, jail? This is the stupidest lyric I've ever heard. Without a doubt.
Submitted by: Bren Koch
"The Boys Are Back In Town"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man, we just fell about the place
Why They're Nonsensical:
What does that mean, 'we just fell about the place'? If it means that they fell on the floor laughing when Johnny got slapped, then they should just say so instead of concocting their own slang phrase so that it rhymes with 'face'. Man, my head just hurts about the place when I hear this line.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in this town
Why They're Inappropriate:
Uhm... maybe at a jail? I think the "somewhere in this town" part is inappropriate because it implies that the jailbreak is going to occur at an unspecified location within the town, not necessarily at a jail.
Submitted by: Edmund Schluessel
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Hey you good lookin' female Come here!
Why They're Inappropriate:
What a classic pick-up line. The fact that it comes from someone who just broke out of jail makes it even more appealing to women.
Submitted by: Mark M
There are additional inappropriate lyrics available.
