Made Up Words
Comments & Submittor Name
|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.|
|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|
