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

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...

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
