Harry Chapin's, "Cat's In The Cradle"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
My son turned 10 just the other day
He said 'thanks for the ball dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw...'
Why They're Nonsensical:
Your kid is 10 and he doesn't know how to throw a ball?

Harry Chapin's, "Cat's In The Cradle"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
What I'd really like, dad is to borrow the car keys.
See you later, can I have them please?
Why They're Nonsensical:
Shouldn't he say, "See you later" after he gets the car keys? What if his dad says no, then where's he going?
