Neil Diamond's, "Desiree"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It was the third of June
On that summer's day
Why They're Nonsensical:
The third of June is in the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) or in the autumn (in the Southern Hemisphere), never in the summer.

Neil Diamond's, "I Am...I Said"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I am I said to no one there
and no one heard at all
not even the chair
Why They're Nonsensical:
Of course not! That's because chairs do not have ears. They are not living things.

Neil Diamond's, "If You Know What I Mean"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And the radio played like a carnival tune
As we lay in our bed in the other room
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
Why They're Nonsensical:
Uh, no, Neil. I don't have a clue what you mean.

Neil Diamond's, "Play Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Songs she sang to me
Songs she brang to me
Why They're Nonsensical:
"Brang"? That's not a real word! Something tells me that he was desperate for a rhyme so he used a nonstandard past tense. Neil, I thought you were smarter than that.

Neil Diamond's, "Play Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You are the Sun
I am the Moon
You are the words
I am the tune
Play me
Why They're Nonsensical:
People aren't literally celestial bodies, nor are they words or tunes. And a person can't be played like a song or musical instrument.

Gardens DON'T grow songs!

Neil Diamond's, "Susainne"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
He said all men are sailors then until the sea shall free them

The sea can't free people from being sailors
