Dwight Yoakam's, "A Thousand Miles from Nowhere"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere
And there's no place I wanna be
Why They're Nonsensical:
Dwight Yoakam is the crowned king of country-western non-sequiturs. When I was an undergraduate we referred to the process of generating such lyrics as the above and 'it only hurts me when I cry', etc. as'Yoakamization'. Recently I gave the above quote on a final exam in artificial intelligence, asking students to write the above as a sentence in first-order logic.

Dwight Yoakam's, "It Only Hurts Me When I Cry"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The only time I feel the pain
Is in the sunshine or the rain
And I don't feel no hurt at all
Unless you count when teardrops fall
I tell the truth 'cept when I lie
And it only hurts me when I cry
Why They're Nonsensical:
I know we're not supposed to submit more than a few lines, but this whole chorus makes no sense!
