    My son is working on a project for school and he needs songs that make no sense. He needs to copy down the lyrics and try to find some meaning in it. Anyone have any ideas?

    The song that never ends? but, that makes sense if you are three.
    what about that song that has the cake left out in the rain , and they don't have the recipe and can never make it again? I have no idea what it is called, but someone here does.

    Don't know if this would qualify or not.


    DO THE FUNKY CHICKEN
    Rufus Thomas

    Y'all come on in now
    Come right on down front
    I got something I want to show you
    Now y'all heard of the Popcorn
    Y'all heard of the Dog
    You heard about all your other dances
    But now there's a brand new dance
    That's going around
    I want to show you exactly what I'm talking about
    I'm talking about the funky chicken, y'all ready?

    You raise the left arm up
    and your right arm too
    Let me tell you just what to do
    Start both of 'em to flapping
    You start your feet to kicking
    That's when you know
    You doin' the funky chicken

    You put both arms up across your face
    You knees start wiggling all over the place
    You flap your arms
    and your feet start kicking
    Then you know you doin' the funky chicken

    Oh, I'm feeling it now
    I feel so unnecessary
    This is the kind
    This is the kind of stuff
    To make you feel like you
    Want to do something nasty
    Like waste some chicken gravy
    On your white shirt
    Right down front here we go y'all

    You work both arms and you work both feet
    Use a dab of gravy, you right on the beat
    You flap your arms
    And your feet start kicking
    The you know you doin' the funky chicken




    Or maybe

    DOES YOUR CHEWING GUM LOSE ITS FLAVOUR ON THE BEDPOST OVERNIGHT?
    Based on the 1924 original by Ernest Hare & Billy Jones
    "Does The Spearmint Lose Its Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?
    (Marty Bloom / Ernest Breuer / Billy Rose)

    Lonnie Donegan - 1958

    Also recorded by : Ding Dongs



    Oh me oh my oh you
    Whatever shall I do?
    Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
    I'd give a lot of dough
    If only I could know
    The answer to my question
    Is it yes or is it no?

    CHORUS:
    Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bedpost overnight?
    If your mother says don't chew it, do you swallow it in spite?
    Can you catch it on your tonsils, can you heave it left and right?
    Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bedpost overnight?

    Here comes a blushing bride
    The groom is by her side
    Up to the altar, just as steady as Gibraltar
    The groom has got the ring
    And it's such a pretty thing
    But as he slips it on her finger
    The choir begins to sing:

    CHORUS

    Now the nation rise as one
    To send their wanted son
    Up to the White House, yes, the nation's only White House
    To voice their discontent
    Unto the Pres-I-dent
    The bonny burning question, What has swept this continent?
    SPOKEN: If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make fog horns
    out of?
    (2nd Voice: Boom! Boom!)

    CHORUS

    On the bedpost overnight
    (2nd Voice: Hello there, I love you and the one who holds you tight!)
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Sat'day night!
    On the bedpost overnight
    (2nd Voice: A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime!)
    He'd sing another chorus but he hasn't got the time!
    On the bedpost overnight, yeah!

    Maybe some songs from like System of a Down.

    There's also another song called "Space Lord" by Monster Magnet---really good song (you'll be singing it all day) but the lyrics are kinda strange...[​IMG]

    Mares eat oats
    and does eat oats
    And little lambs eat ivy
    A kid'll eat ivy, too, wouldn't you?

    From childhood of course

    This is the song that never ends,
    It just goes on and on, my friends.
    Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
    And now they just keep singing it forever just because...

    oooey gooey was a worm
    a mighty worm was he,
    he climbed upon the railroad tracks
    the train he did not see
    Oooooey gooey

    one day as I was walking
    one dark and dreary day
    I came upon a billboard
    and much to my dismay
    the sign was torn and tattered
    from the storm the night before
    the rain and wind had done its work
    and this is what I saw

    Drink coca-cola cigarettes
    chew rigley's spearment beer
    carnation and dogfood,
    it makes your complexion clear
    simonize your baby with a hershey candy bar
    texacola beauty cream is used by all the stars

    so spend your next vacation
    in a brand new frigidaire
    learn to play piano in your winter underwear
    doctors proof their babies to smoke until they're 3
    people over 65 should bathe in lipton tea
