I HAVE house and land in Kent, And if you'll love, me, love me now ; Twopence- halfpenny is my rent, I cannot come every day to woo. .. Well can they judge of nappy ale. . Else is he a flirting Where his mark is a-courting ; When women grow true.
One of the more interesting examples has to be "On Earth My Nina", whose lyrics are Mondegreens from playing their song "Thunderbird" backwards. Linnell has stated that the music for "Don't Let's Start" was written before the lyrics, and the lyrics were chosen mostly because the words fit the number of syllables for the melody.
When asked about the meaning of the song, Linnell simply stated it was about "not let's starting. The yellow Roosevelt Avenue leaf overturned The ardor of arboreality is an adventure we have spurned A famous person wears the same size water skis as me She's got three cars as many years I've lived in this city.
Her hair is blonde and mine is brown; they both start with a "b" But when the phone inside her ribcage rings, it's not for me But when the phone inside her ribcage rings, it's not for me HEY! Their "Crystal Fortress" song is about Strong Badasking for him to "come down from his crystal fortress". Strong Bad not only doesn't get the lyrics, but openly mocks the singer in the background.
Their song Stuff is Way is basically entirely this. The chorus seems like some pretty straightforward musings about death "we die alone, we die in pain, we live in terror The verses sometimes less so: If you won't make out with a bi-plane No! Perchance a dance with a carcass in space? But now you gotta buy me some antlers Antlers are what I need you to buy Why?
Then send me down to the postman You do it! Tell the postman to throw me to They basically played along to a backwards recording of their song "Waterfall", then wrote new lyrics based on mondegreens of the backwards vocals. The "One Week" example is lampshaded in "Testing 1,2,3" off the following album The music video is more obvious about it, highlighting the next pointwhich is a Take That!
As their name implies, a lot of their songs are based on dreams or intended to feel dreamlike, so its sort of inevitable that this happens. Guitarist Peter Buck said once that Michael Stipe did this intentionally at times: And some of its not there to get. Certain bits are just words that sounded good strung together. All of the guests were people with the initials L.
And then the world ended. The name is also a Southernism for "losing my temper", which helps explain a lot but isn't immediately obvious. And then some have a meaning only known to them: Charades, pop skill, Water hyacinth, Named by a poet, Imitation of life Like a coin in a frozen pond, Like a goldfish in a bowl, I don't want to hear you cry That sugarcane that tasted good, That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood, Come on, come on, No one can see you try Brazilian band Engenheiros do Hawaii uses a lot of these, though none of them flying as fast as one would expect from some cases seen in this trope.
Here's a translation of thisjust for reference: Between a face and a portrait, the real and the abstract, between madness and lucidity, between a uniform and nudity Between the end of the world and the end of the month, between the truth and the English rock, between the others and you I feel like a foreigner, passenger of some train, that doesn't go around here, that is nothing but illusion The Presidents of the United States of America do this often, usually for comedic purposes.
On example, "Twig," starts like this: Most of Queen 's songs, such as "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Another One Bites The Dust" although the latter does have the underlying thread of street gangs.
Which was, of course, parodied by Yankovictoo. A particularly glorious example is "On a Plain": Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory has stored As a defense I'm neutered and spayed While there might be a meaning behind it, Alanis Morissette 's "Thank U" has verses that qualify in this trope: How 'bout gettin' off of these antibiotics?
How 'bout stoppin' eatin' when I'm full up? How 'bout them transparent danglin' carrots? How 'bout that ever-elusive kudo? Parodied in the cover version by Steven Wilson which changes the most non-sensical line "How about them dangling carrots? This is, perhaps, excusable, as Thom Yorke was notoriously obsessed with Dadaism during this period and wrote the lyrics to some of the songs on Kid A following Tristan Tzara's instructions for writing a Dada poem.
Lyrical Shoehorn plays enough of a role in their songwriting period that this features on all of their albums, to some degree. Shaun Ryder, the lead singer of Happy Mondays, is known for writing incomprehensible drug-induced stream-of-consciousness lyrics. For instance, "Kelly's Heroes" seems like a cynical look at how celebrities are worshiped as heroes, but who knows where "Jesus was a black man, Jesus was Batmanno that was Bruce Wayne!
The Manic Street Preachers are another example. Not only have they mashed together various words into lyrics "Cos reality for TV is Disney not King, Rodney" in Dead Yankee Drawl for an early examplebut they have also included references to people and concepts not immediately accessible to the listener, leading to an unofficial website that tries to decipher most of the references.
This may also be an example of Listeners Are Geniuses. While many of Nicky Wire's lyrics are just plain incomprehensible, Richey Edward's songs do have meanings They're just composed of insanely obscure and complicated references. Many Soul Coughing songs seem to just consist of cool-sounding nonsense.
Which may possibly be explained due to the lyricist's fondness for I'll scratch you raw, l'etat c'est moi I drink the drink and I'm wall to wall I absorb trust like a love rhombus I feel I must elucidate I ate the chump with guile Quadrilateral I was, now I warp like a smile The verses of "Casiotone Nation" consist of variants of "the five percent nation of arbitrary noun " or "The People's Republic of arbitrary noun ", which the band would change every time it was played live.
The refrain from "Down to This", which was assembled due to Doughty being a little hyper and repeating various other Ear Worm phrases while working the door at a local club.
Doughty doesn't remember what the words are, doesn't care, and says whatever you imagine them to be is probably more interesting anyway. Beat poetry tends to Lyrical Shoehorn as often as it makes even symbolic sense.
James, due to their tendency to spawn everything out of jams and improvs and then let Tim just go nuts over the top. The Wah Wah album is the best illustration of this, and "Frequency Dip" is the Crowning Moment Of Bonkers, with its complete garbage about sediment layers, false hair-dos and "some kind of sink unit".
Flirt (2011) Lyrics
Many of Coheed and Cambria 's lyrics sound like this. For example, from "Mother Superior": Weezer 's "Dope Nose", which Rivers Cuomo has admitted has "no meaning whatsoever". It's not as extreme as some other examples, but it does feature a few baffling lines like "cheese smells so good on a burnt piece of lamb". Pretty much anything by Robyn Hitchcock. One of the earlier examples is Leppo and the Jooves, in which the first stanza goes as follows: Crabwise Over the Andalusian extensions of the life and loves of Noddy Through the windows of disgust The teeth of Leppo and his managers awry No time to cry Peaked out in "Unsettled", e.
Got a heart exact tomato flourish on a spike of greedy prongs If a baseball dug moussaka Alan wraps the biscuit in a Novel thongs accepted every turning bends away Biting off a crust, the troubled hey do you Haw, haw, haw, haw, ha, ha, ha, ha. Count your blessings and smile. Milk I serve to Mrs. Mrs Jones is very fat, she slipped on a butter pat, And underneath her, laid out flat, was Dan the dairyman. Moore, today a nurse came to the door, Instead of two pints she had four from Dan the dairy man.
A bit of gangster a terror to all, the lads call me Dare Devil Dick. Only last week without saying a word, I travelled first-class when my ticket was third.
Full fare on me ticket they soon made me pay, But I got me own back the very next day, I bought two first-class tickets and walked all the way! With a girl on a raft I was wrecked on the seas. I was in a short shirt, and she wore a chemise. For a picnic I went with my sweetie one day, We romped in the fields and we sat in the hay.

The tale of a gymnast upon a trapeze With muscular arms, legs and beautiful knees. The lights went low as too and fro he gracefully slipped, He was such a daring young man.
To change his clothes from head to toes, in darkness he stripped, He was such a daring young man. He was such a daring young man A lady fair shot through the air towards his trapeze, Now he was such a daring young man.
He caught her wrist then gave a twist, pulled her on his knees, He was such a daring young man. Ukulele Solo In modern music some clever guy has started a brand new craze. I dreamt I visited a far off land in a lovely big sea yacht But where would you go to if the boiler bust Does your dream book tell you that? Does your dream book tell you that? One day little Nellie she looked worried, it was plain, She met him at the pit head with a bundle in the rain, He just took one look at it, then he staggered back again, And he tumbled down the old coal hole.
Ukulele Solo Once I thought I would go in for flying and so A chap took me up in his plane Thought some stunts he would try, loop the loop in the sky We turned over and over again. Now bow down everyone here I come, bang that cymbal and hit that drum. Is he somebody we should know? Is he one of the usual crowd? Bow down everyone, here I come, bang that cymbal and hit that drum. See her glide around the floor, Then glide around into the pub next door. Fanlight Fanny the frowsy nightclub queen.
She waltzes in the West End shops, then waltzes out in between two cops, Fanlight Fanny the frowsy nightclub queen. Every morning at the break of day, They call for the empties and they cart away Fanlight Fanny the frowsy nightclub queen.
Extra verse as sung in film. She ought to be cremated too. The air is so fresh, you get quite a thrill, But some of the milkmaids are much fresher still.
Down at the village inn, the daughters so nice, my fresh eggs she does enjoy. For two eggs she lets me give her kisses a few, For four eggs I can kiss her, yes, and cuddle her too. I get ten bob a week, and everything found, and what have I found, oh boy! I met a country maid on marketing day, with her basket she looked so coy.
Says the old maid every evening as beneath her bed she peers, Once more darned unlucky after five and twenty years. At the well one night Rebecca met a young man with ideas, That night she cracked her pitcher after five and twenty years. Jones never took his wife out till the boiler burst, poor dears, Then they both went out together after five and twenty years.
