Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Genius Of Love" by Tom Tom Club
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
iscup handra huta hishki
icup handra huta hi
icup hanti husic handra huta hila
kosaba handro uish kindro aya
- or -
iko pa handra hoo kuh-haish kay
iko pa handra hoo kuh hay
iko pantsee hootsee kandra roo hoota ra hindra
ko saba handa ruish kendro wya
Why They're Nonsensical:
The above is the reason these lyrics don't make any sense. What language is this? And what do these words mean? This part of the song -- spoken at about the 3-minute mark -- has baffled me for years, and I'm sure other people wonder about it as well. Still, I find it rather laughable in a sense. (Note to the editor: This is not spam; these are just two possible transcriptions of the lyrics which I got from songfacts.com.)

Inappropriate Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Genius Of Love" by Tom Tom Club
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Oops! Your mama said uh
Oops! Your mama said uh
Oops! Your mama said uh
Oops! Your mama
Why They're Inappropriate:
Muttered during the interlude between the second and third verses. I don't see how it relates to the rest of the song.
