Harry Nilsson's, "Coconut"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, drink 'em both down
Put the lime in the coconut, an' call me in the mornin'
Why They're Nonsensical:
If you ask me, the whole darn song oughta be in there...I read it through three times and it still makes no sense. It's just so funny to listen to.

Harry Nilsson's, "Everybody's Talkin'"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
People stopping, staring,
I can't see their faces.
Only the shadows of their eyes
Why They're Nonsensical:
Most people's eyes are too deeply embedded in their heads to cast shadows. Even if there were shadows of their eyes, how would one know that they were staring from seeing only those shadows?

Harry Nilsson's, "Me And My Arrow"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wherever we go, everyone knows
It's me and my arrow.
Why They're Nonsensical:
First of all, it should be 'My Arrow And Me.' It is not correct English to say 'Me And My Arrow.' Second of all, when Harry Nilsson mentions himself and his arrow, it makes him sound like the arrow is his girlfriend. That doesn't make any sense, I mean an arrow is not a person; an arrow is something that's used to point to something or give directions.

Harry Nilsson's, "My Old Desk"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
My old desk does an arabesque
In the morning, when I first arrive
Why They're Nonsensical:
It is not possible for a desk, or any other piece of furniture, to do an arabesque, nor is it possible for a piece of furniture to know when you walk into your office or into a room.
