Jim Reeves', "Billy Bayou"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Billy was a boy kinda big for his size.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I suppose the nonsense here is intentional, aimed at being whimsical. But "big for his size" makes no sense. Whatever his size is, it is just that. One can be neither big nor little for one's size. A similar (and I suppose intentionally) nonsensical phrase that I've heard is "young for his age".

Jim Reeves', "Bottle, Take Effect"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then just lead me to those lights of blue on the corner of regret.
Why They're Nonsensical:
What shape is regret, that it has any corners? Triangular, square, or pentagonal? Or maybe even a cube or a dodecahedron?
