Arlo Guthrie's, "City Of New Orleans"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Where can a train pull out at Kankakee? Only at Kankakee (DUH!). It can't do so all along any "southbound odyssey"!

Arlo Guthrie's, "The Motorcycle Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't want a pickle
I just want to ride on my motorcycle
Why They're Nonsensical:
Seems kinda baffling that one would be given the choice between a pickle and a motorcycle. Some crazy options; it's like apples and oranges.
