John Mellencamp's, "Again Tonight"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Girl's got lightning underneath her skirt.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Girls can do just about anything they want. But I know for a fact that girls can't produce massive electrical charges under their skirts. It just sounds too far-fetched.

I fight authority and authority always wins.
Oh, I fight authority and authority always wins
I've been doing it since I was a young kid and I'd come out grinning.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why would he come out grinning if authority wins?

John Mellencamp's, "Jack and Diane"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Dribble off those Bobbie Brooks
Why They're Nonsensical:
Jack is telling Diane to take off her clothes. 'Dribble' makes no sense at all. Every lyrics website for this song shows the word "dribble." I have to wonder if John was mumbling 'You pull'.
