Jim Croce's, "Operator"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Give me the number if you can find it,
so I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is a case where repeating the chorus throughout a song completely throws off the story. The first time he sings these lines, it makes complete sense. Then he sings them again after the operator gave him the number (hence he already knows she can find it). Finally he sings them again after declaring he no longer wants to make the call!
