Made Up Words in Songs Lyrics, Latest Entries

Song Title
Made Up Words
Comments & Submittor Name
Rammstein B******** Bückstabü Accoring to guitarist Richard Kruspe; it means whatever the listener wants it to mean. - Jay
SSQ Synthicide Synthicide There's a line in the song that goes "killing the pain, synthicide". So I think it's saying that listening to synthesizer music or synthpop music will help get rid of you sadness, hurt and other negative emotions. But "synthicide" is definitely not a real word. To me, the word implies murdering somebody with a synthesizer (beating them to death with it I guess LOL) or that you've killed a synthesizer, LOL. The song's from the 80s but definitely wasn't a hit. But the lead singer of SSQ was a young Stacy Q., who would a few years later have a hit with and become a "one hit wonder" with her catchy song Two Of Hearts. Synthicide's an OK song but I think the title and lyrics hurt it somewhat and that's why it wasn't a hit, but yeah I've definitely heard better. - Edward
Yung Gravy Oops! Supercalifragilisticexpialidopesh*t, supercalifragiliyourexbeonsomeh**sh*t He’s just making up rude words out of another made-up word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”! - BrilliantJ8
The Beatles I Am the Walrus Goo Goo G'joob Sounds like baby talk. Of course, this was around the time The Beatles went all Psychedelic so there was bound to be some weird lyrics. - Steve
Betty Hutton Doing What Come Natur'lly natur'lly From the musical, Annie Get Your Gun. - Sheila Oh
Tears for Fears Mad World Halargian The final line "Halargian world, mad world" references a studio in-joke: "Halarge" was a fictional planet invented by a couple of guest musicians on Tears for Fears' first album. In Gary Jules' well-known cover, this line is changed to "enlarging your world, mad world." - Sejica
Chairlift Amanaemonesia Amanaemonesia Lead singer Caroline Polachek says it's "a made-up word, made from combining a bunch of other different words. It means everything it sounds like." - Sejica
Frankie Smith Double Dutch Bus Hizzey, gizzirls, Y'izzall, hizzave, mizzove, izzout, wizzay, sizzo, gizzuys, plizzay, bizzasketbizzall, izzsay, whizzat, nizzo, yizzou, izzan't, etc. These are words with the "izz" added. - JohnHowarth
They Might Be Giants, Mike Doughty, Elegant Too Mr.Xcitement hubba, blubba, landem, clamdem, glands, staben, hoobalicious, aden, mooky, Flansy, trooky,  - RayGun Sharpadero
The Associates  Skipping  Beauxillous  The lyric “Beauxillous Griffin” sounds very similar to “bruxellois griffon”, and may have been some sort of play on it. Billy MacKenzie was a real dog lover after all, it would not be the first canine-related Associates lyric. - Vonne
The Letter People Ms. F's song Foodle-doodle-doo, feedle-deedle-dee  - JohnHowarth
Gioacchino Rossini Impromptu tarantellisé tarantellisé Instrumental, but suggestive of a tarantella - Alan the Ottoman
Gioacchino Rossini Prélude fugassé fugassé Instrumental, but the title suggests a fugal structure - Alan the Ottoman
Hall and Oates Rockability The girl got rockability. Rockability isn't a real word. But I think in the song it's their way of saying she's cool, sexy or attractive I guess. - Edward
Tom Waits Swordfishtrombone swordfishtrombone "He went and took up with a Salvation Army band girl
Who played dirty water on a swordfishtrombone."
-- are the lyrics that have the title word in context. Neither the word nor its overall context in the song make its meaning very self-explanatory. I googled the word and tried to look up a definition, to make sure it wasn't a pre-existing word. I found nothing to suggest it to be anything other than the song's invention. It seems an obscure, not clearly definable term, just a juxtaposition of two dissimilar entities. - Natalie Lundgren
Ethel Merman It's De-Lovely de-lovely Lovely is a word but de-lovely isn't. - Old Man Edgar Winter
Massive Attack Karmacoma Karmacoma In line of chorus: "Karmacoma, jamaica an' roma" - Farlow Maitland
PB&J Otter Zip, Zap Zoop Zoop  - Weast Weasel
Pat Boone The Wang Dang Taffy-Apple Tango wang dang  - Musiclover
Electric Light Orchestra Don't Bring Me Down Grooss According to the liner notes of the ELO compilation Flashback and elsewhere, Lynne has explained that he was singing that made-up word "Grooss", which some have suggested sounds like the German expression "Gruß" (Gruss). After the song's release, so many people had misinterpreted the word as "Bruce" that Lynne actually began to sing the word as "Bruce" for fun at live shows. - Joey F.
