Toto's, "Africa"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus
above the Serengeti
Why They're Nonsensical:
Umm... Kilimanjaro is a volcanic peak (actually 3 volcanoes) that rises almost 20,000 ft from a relatively flat savanna. Olympus is some 10,000 feet shorter, and is surrounded by high, rocky terrain that make it hard to distinguish it or recognize it's true height. The comparison is fair only in that you might find both listed under 'mountains' in an atlas.

Toto's, "Africa"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
Why They're Nonsensical:
'Solitary' means without company. Maybe they meant 'singular.'

Toto's, "Rosanna"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
All I wanna do at evening is hold you tight, Rosanna, Rosanna
I didn't know you were looking for more than I could ever be
Why They're Nonsensical:
Duh! Maybe she wants more than to be held...?
