Beggars Banquet album at
The Rolling Stones', "Jumpin' Jack Flash"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas, gas, gas!
Why They're Nonsensical:
Is Mick telling us that something called "Jumpin' jack flash" is some sort of gas? Or is he telling someone named Jack Flash about a gas? (Since in the latter scenario we don't know what "it" is.)

The Rolling Stones', "Mixed Emotions"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Button your lip, baby. Button your coat.
Let's go out dancing, go for the throat.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Huh? Go for the throat? Is Mick Jagger trying to tell us he's a vampire or something? Whatever. And it doesn't even relate to the lyrics before it in the song. I really don't know what it has to do with the previous line.
