Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Roger Whittaker's, "New World In The Morning"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning,
A new world in the morning so they say.
I myself don't talk about a new world in the morning.
Why They're Nonsensical:

It should be either "Oh I don't wish you ANY bad luck baby" or "Oh I WISH you no bad luck baby." If Lou Rawls says he doesn't wish me NO bad luck, obviously he DOES wish me SOME bad luck.

It's the truth my child
My second life has just begun
With this hungry girl

Very upbeat song with very deep, depressing lyrics written and sung by the late drummer Paul Hester.
