"December 1963 (Oh What A Night)" by The Four Seasons
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Oh what a night
you know I didn't even know her name?
But I was never going to be the same
What a lady! What a night
Why They're Nonsensical:
Umm? You can recall the date of the night that you slept with her but you didn't even bother to learn what her name was beforehand?
Submitted by: Celeste
"White Lines (Don't Do It)" by Grandmaster Flash
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
He got out 3 years from now
Why They're Nonsensical:
Inconsistent tense; this line shifts from past ("got out") to future ("3 years from now).
