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.
Corky and the Juice Pigs I'm the Only Gay Eskimo Nukflukchukbuk Well, me and Nukflukchukbuk, we both like blubber - Leopard Seal
Gwen Stefani Hollaback Girl hollaback There's no such word. - Sheila Oh

Gorillaz Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head castrophany  - soph
Cast of Book of Mormon Hasa Diga Eebowai Hasa Diga Eebowai It's said in the musical to mean "f**k you, God", but Matt and Trey admit they just came up with a foreign-sounding phrase. - Amanda
Dr. John Chickee Le Pas Chickee Le Pas Even by Dr. John standards this one's bizarro. - Amanda
311 Brodels Brodel  - YYYfan
