Elton John's, "Candle In The Wind"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And even when you died,
Oh, the press still hounded you.
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Since it was her death that they were reporting, I'm pretty sure that they said she had died, not JUST that she was "found in the nude"!

Elton John's, "Circle of Life"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But all are agreed
When you join the stampede
You should never take more than you give
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, thanks Elton, I'll be sure and remember that the next time I'm on a stampede.

Elton John's, "Country Comfort"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Down at the well they've got a new machine
The foreman says it cuts manpower by fifteen
Yeah but that ain't natural, well so old Clay would say
You see he's a horse-drawn man until his dying day
Why They're Nonsensical:
'Cuts manpower by fifteen'? Just how many people does it take to draw water from a well, anyway? And I've heard of horse-drawn carts, buggies and trolleys -- but a horse-drawn well?

Elton John's, "I'm Still Standing"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
If love was just a circus, you'd be a clown by now.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Simply makes no sense at all. Love isn't just (just?) a circus, and is becoming a clown a career path?

Elton John's, "Nikita"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
With eyes that looked like ice on fire
Why They're Nonsensical:
Since ice is non-flammable, there is no such thing as ice on fire. So how could anything look like it? I sound like a talking rock.

Elton John's, "Rocket Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's just my job, five days a week.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I hardly think being an astronaut is a "five day a week" type of job. He sings the rest of the song as though he's far away from home and desperately lonely, then comes this line which implies he gets weekends off??

Elton John's, "Rocket Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
Why They're Nonsensical:
Sorry Elton, but it has been scientifically proven that Mars is, in fact, a very hot and dry atmosphere, one of the hottest known to exist.

Elton John's, "Rocket Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
Why They're Nonsensical:
Hell is supposed to be hot, not cold.

Elton John's, "Solar Prestige A Gammon"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Solar prestige a gammon
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually, this entire song makes no sense, it's all just a bunch of random words (although if you listen close, it does sounds like he says 5 different types of fish throughout the chorus)

Elton John's, "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
What do I do when lightning strikes me?
Why They're Nonsensical:
You go crazy. What else? Or how about get yourself to the hospital if you're still living??

Elton John's, "Step Into Christmas"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Step into Christmas, let's join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is all just an oxymoron! First of all, how do you "step" into Christmas? Second of all, you can't watch the snow fall forever and ever because snow doesn't fall forever and ever. The snow HAS to stop falling at some point.
Submitted by: Plain Jane Pauley Perrette
Elton John's, "Step Into Christmas"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever.
Why They're Nonsensical:
No you can't. Snow doesn't fall forever and ever.

Elton John's, "Take Me To The Pilot"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Through a glass eye your throne
Is the one danger zone
Take me to the pilot for control
Take me to the pilot of your soul
Take me to the pilot
Lead me through the chamber
Take me to the pilot
I am but a stranger
Why They're Nonsensical:
The whole song is just complete nonsense; it doesn't really mean anything.
Submitted by: Aaron
Elton John's, "The One"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When stars collide, like you and I,
no shadows block the sun.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Shadows block the sun? Doesn't something block the sun to create a shadow? How can a shadow block the thing that produces it?
Submitted by: G. Bland
Elton John's, "Your Song"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
If I was a sculptor, but then again no.
Why They're Nonsensical:
It's grammatically incorrect, nonsensical and written by Elton and Bernie Taupin. What were these two smoking anyway?
