Made Up Words
Comments & Submittor Name
|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|
|Tears for Fears||Lord of Karma||pain-o-rama||Lyrics: "Lord of Karma, your mystic pain-o-rama, one good reason keep my feet on the ground." - Martha Hankins|
|Ted Nugent||Wango Tango||Wango, and any other words he makes up live||"Wango Tango" are the only set words in the song. It changes every time he performs it, but what is a wango? - person number infinity|
|Temptations||Ball of Confusion||Great Googamooga||Why has this classic song not yet been mentioned? - Russell|
|Ten Years After||Skooby-Oobly-Doobob||skooby-oobly-doobob||- Loree Dare|
|Tenacious D||Beelzeboss||Hey anti-Christ-er, Beelzeboss||The song has combined the words "Beelzebub" and "boss". Would seem it means a boss from hell. - Lucinda Blair|
|Tenacious D||The Road||Boosh||"Snackin' on a tasty Boosh, right after the show!" Apparently "bush" as in pubic hair, but it's The D, so who knows? - Woop Woop|
|Theme Songs||The Addams Family||They're all together ooky||Is that even a word, "ooky"? - Isac|
|Therapy?||Screamager||Screamager||The title is a made up word, even though, as noted in another post, it isn't part of the lyrics. - Karen Smith|
|They Might Be Giants||Don't Let's Start||Deputy dog dog a ding dang depadepa||"Thanks for stoppin' by!" - Mickey D.|
|They Might Be Giants, Mike Doughty, Elegant Too||Mr.Xcitement||hubba, blubba, landem, clamdem, glands, staben, hoobalicious, aden, mooky, Flansy, trooky,||- RayGun Sharpadero|
|Thin Lizzy||Romeo & The Lonely Girl||Own-ee-oh||Sitting out on his own-ee-oh. - Mickey D.|
|The Three Playmates||Sugah Wooga||sugah, wooga||- Loree Dare|
|Thurl Ravenscroft||You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch||Wasty||Taken from the line "You're a nasty, wasty, skunk." Considering that Dr. Seuss was famous for making up words, it's rather surprising that this is the only one in the song. - Psycho Librarian|
|TLC||Unpretty||Unpretty||Well... It's not in any Dictionary I've seen. - Elizabeth|
|Tobin Mathews & Co.||Ruby Duby Du||duby, du||- Loree Dare|
|Toby Keith & Jimmy Buffett||Too Drunk To Karaoke||Drunkativity||Lyrics: "Just prove that theory of drunkativity". It's a word play on Einstein's "theory of relativity". Goofy but it's a funny song. - 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
|Tommy James||Boo, Boo, Don't 'Cha Be Blue||'cha||- Loree Dare|
|Tommy James||Out of the Blue||Ungroovy||Everything was so ungroovy. - JD|
|Toni Braxton||Un-Break My Heart||un-break, un-cry||- redsimba|
|Trace Adkins||Honky Tonk Badonkadonk||Badonkadonk||I can't find the word "Badonkadonk" in any dictionary, and have never heard of it except in this song. So I assume it is made up. And I still don't know what it might mean. - Lucinda Blair|
|Tracey Dey||Ska-Doo-Dee-Yah||ska-doo-dee-yah||- Loree Dare|
|Travis Wammack||(Shu-Doo-Pa-Poo-Poop) Love Being Your Fool||shu-doo-pa-poo-poop||- Loree Dare|
|Trent Tomlinson||Drunker Than Me||Drunker||Self Explanatory - PinmonkeyJunkie|
