Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Gotta Boogie"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Gotta boogie! (x8)
Got a boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off!
Why They're Nonsensical:
I suppose I could have put this in the "Funniest" lyrics section, since the meaning of the title is discovered after he stops repeating it so many times at the beginning of the song. But I am putting it here because of his use of the word "gotta". "Gotta" technically means "got to", not "got a"; furthermore, it's not even any shorter to say "gotta" in lieu of "Got a". I know it's common for "to" to be unemphasized (hence the neologisms "wanna" and "gotta") to the point where it sounds more like "a" (the word, not the letter), but it doesn't make "got a" any shorter to write it like that.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Eve 6's, "Situation Infatuation"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
We have a situation infatuation
We haven't even had a conversation
And I'm lying awake and picturing you naked
I already feel I owe an explanation
Why They're Misrhymed:
Is "naked" supposed to be rhyming with "explanation" or "awake and"? In either case, it doesn't rhyme.

Of the funniest f***er in the world

Inappropriate Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Benny Mardones', "Into The Night"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
She's just sixteen years old
Leave her alone, they said...
Why They're Inappropriate:
At the time he recorded his 1989 remake of this song, Benny was 43. Yikes! Whenever they play this at my workplace, I always imagine Herbert the Pervert's voice singing it: "He's just thirteen years old, leave him alone, they said..." Benny's voice is already quite high-pitched so it's not that hard to imagine him as Herbert.

She was a-standin' by my door, And the last time I seen her false-hearted smile,
She was dead on that bar room floor! (Poor girl!)
Why:
This song has quite a rousing, uptempo tune. And yet it tells of finding one's love untrue and then finding her dead. What a tale to sing so blithely!
