Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

The Rembrandts', "I'll Be There For You (Theme from Friends)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You're still in bed at ten, and work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast so far things are going great
Why They're Nonsensical:
That does not make sense at all, things are NOT going great if you're sleeping in two hours past the time you were supposed to be at work, plus you've burned your breakfast. That is horrible! Obviously your employer will get onto you if you're expected and do not show up without even calling in. Burning your breakfast doesn't help make the day any better either.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Johnny Cash's, "Folsom Prison Blues"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
Why They're Inappropriate:
This has to be the sickest line of all time. how can anyone feel sympathy for the song's protagonist after hearing this? This makes the "morbid curiosity" explanation seem like just cause. He should have told this to the judge so the song would be called "firing squad blues" or burning in hell blues". Johnny Cash really should have kept this side to himself. We didn't need to hear about this thought, especially in the "innocent" 1950's.
