Your favourite nonsense lyrics

What’s she gonna look like with a chimney on her?

I am the eggman

Things like that yeah


Whatever is being sung in ‘Louie Louie’

“I really really wanna zig-a-zig-ah”

What the fuck?

EDIT: Awful post this, disregard. Jesus.


The Associates are great at this. Breakfast is a fine example- the words are beautiful, they make no logical sense but somehow seem to be meaningful.

“She gave herself
They took her to their hearts
Clapped their hands till sore
Once more eyes smart
Taxidermist gave life to Hugh
It sits and begs
And stares at you

Since when did you cook breakfast for
Lieutenant Paul
In ruined mirador
This lease on life
Can tie you down
So precious is the jagged crown

Talk to me I’ll stay these vagabond nights
Walk with me someone is waiting in light

Exchanging worlds, arranging days
To suit a lover
Who’ll never stay
Breakfast skies
Bring curtains down
Upon a crumbling lacquered gown
A crumbling lacquered gown”

Got me a movie
I want you to know
Slicing up eyeballs
I want you to know
Girlie so groovy
I want you to know
Don’t know about you
But I am un chien andalusia

Sure Frank


I was afraid I’d eat your brains.
Cause I’m evil


The Clinger Sisters

This is so great and of course the video is a bonus.

Sure you know this but might not be immediately obvious is that this song is nonsense words but written as how Italians hear English rock songs (especially 50s Elvis style obviously).Such a clever song.


We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kind of sea-sick
And the crowd called out for more

(with a nod to The Commitments)

There’s a song on one of the last Fall albums where the chorus is just “A BIG FAT MAN, PUSHING A LITTLE PRAM.” which I find weirdly funny.

They’re justified and they’re ancient
And they drive an ice cream van

Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball


People laugh, they will call it folly
But we connected like a Yeboah volley

Two Librans reflect
Two Librans high and low in mind
To Oprah Winfrey
She studied bees
Studied bees two Librans


Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true
Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil
Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world
So there was only one thing that I could do
Was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long

Ding dang a dong bong bing bong
Ticky ticky thought of a gun
Every time I try to do it all now baby
Am I on the run

Why why why why why baby
If it’s so evil then?
Give me my time, with all my power
Give it to me all again (wow)

Ding a ding a dang a dong dong ding dong
Every where I go

Every time you tell me baby
When I settle down
Got to get me a trailer park
And hold my world around
Why why why why?

Ding ding dong dong dong ding dong
Dingy dingy son of a gun
Half my time I tell you…


Mew’s, they make no sense to me sometimes but i love them. See: zookeepers boy

You’re tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there’s a glitch
You’re an ostrich
You’ve got your head in the sand


Her stories are boring and stuff, she’s always calling my bluff
