Tori Amos', "Bliss"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Father, I killed my monkey
I had to let it out
To taste the sweetness of spring
Why They're Nonsensical:
This puts me in mind of the story Frank Skinner told at Leeds City Varieties about the residents of Hartlepool who hung a monkey in mistake for a French spy. As this was the time when French footballer Eric Cantona played for Leeds United, Frank reckoned the monkey had its collar up just like Cantona's!

Words fail me.

Tori Amos', "Mr Zebra"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hello Mr Zebra, ran into some confusion with a Mrs Crocodile
Furry mussels marching on, she think's she's Kaiser Wilheim
or a civilised syllabub to blow your mind.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I love Tori and I actually sang this song recently at a Uni song night, but I've still no idea what a 'civilised syllabub' is or what most of the lyrics are about !!
