The Smiths', "Big Mouth Strikes Again"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
Now I know of Joan of Arc felt
As the flames rose to her Roman nose
And her Walkman started to melt.
Why They're Nonsensical:
It doesn't make sense because Walkmans didn't exist in the 1400s, when Joan Of Arc was alive.

The Smiths', "Frankly, Mr. Shankly"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled
making Christmas cards for the mentally ill.
I want to Live
and I want to Love.
I want to catch something
that I might be ashamed of.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Love + catch something that I might be ashamed of? STD. Sounds like instead of making cards for the mental, you should be joining them in the hospital.
