Bob Dylan's, "Lay Lady Lay"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Lay, lady, lay,
Lay across my big brass bed
Why They're Nonsensical:
What is the lady meant to be laying across Bob's big brass bed ... eggs ... bricks? Oh, did you mean 'lie', Bob? (as in, lie down?)

Bob Dylan's, "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The only person on the scene missing was the Jack of Hearts
Why They're Nonsensical:
He's either on the scene (present), or he's missing (absent). Can't be both at the same time.

Bob Dylan's, "Love Minus Zero / No Limit"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The wind howls like a hammer.
Why They're Nonsensical:
When has a hammer ever howled??

Bob Dylan's, "My Back Pages"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Ah, but I was so much older then.
I'm younger than that now.
Why They're Nonsensical:
You'd think from these lyrics that Bob had found a fountain of youth. But my understanding is that the search for such a fountain is an enterprise given up on ever since Ponce De Leon failed at it.

Bob Dylan's, "Shelter From The Storm"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I just have no idea what this means!

Bob Dylan's, "Wiggle Wiggle"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wiggle wiggle wiggle like a bowl of soup
Wiggle wiggle wiggle like a rubber hoop
Why They're Nonsensical:
Dylan made some truly dire songs during the 80s, and this is quite possibly the worst (compounded by the fact that neither of those two things wiggle; at least not naturally).
