Three Dog Night's, "Joy To The World"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Why They're Nonsensical:
A frog with a stash of wine? Where did they come up with that (keeping in mind that this song came out decades before a certain other alcoholic beverage used frogs in their commercials)?

Three Dog Night's, "Never Been To Spain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I've never been to heaven, but I've been to Oklahoma.
They tell me I was born there, but I really don't remember.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Of course you can't remember being born. I don't think anyone can. However, if he means that he really doesn't remember anyone telling him that he was born in a specified place, then that's a bit confusing.
