Carly Simon's, "Why"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You say you want to come back again some day
Darling here's what I say: la-di-da-di-da
Why They're Nonsensical:
Oooooh! Feisty! That's going to show him, Carly, isn't it?? I bet he'll be crying traumatically for days after you dared to say 'la-di-da-di-da' to him! What an absolutely corny excuse for a bridge. If you got nothing to Ronan Keating philosophized: 'you say it best when you say nothing at all'...

Carly Simon's, "You're So Vain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I had some dreams; they were clouds in my coffee.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Dreams are hallucinations in one's brain (when one is asleep). They are not clouds in any beverage.

Carly Simon's, "You're So Vain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well, you walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht.
Why They're Nonsensical:
You mean there's a standard manner for walking onto a yacht??? And if so, would walking into a party that way somehow contribute to a case for the title assertion of 'You're so vain'??

Carly Simon's, "You're So Vain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you
Why They're Nonsensical:
It *obviously* is about 'you'! What else would it be about? Duh! I for one find this especially humorous, as I can't help but feel that Carly Simon is singing it to *herself*, which makes for a hilarious paradox.
