Nonsensical Song Lyrics, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Creedence Clearwater Revival's, "Looking Out My Back Door"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Maybe John Fogerty lives in an area where such things are so common he can see them lookin' out his back door... but I think it's more likely he was consuming substances that shouldn't be consumed. Why else would he have come up with such a crazy line as this?
Submitted by: Princess Ana
Roxette's, "How Do You Do!"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I love your blue eyed voice.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Voices don't have eyes or any other colorful parts.
Submitted by: Karen Smith
