Lyrics that make you say WTF?

STP, Plush:

And I feel that time's a wasted go, so where ya going to tomorrow? And I see that these are lies to come. Would you even care?

And I feel it - And I feel it

Where ya going to tomorrow? Where ya going with that mask I found?

And I feel, and I feel.

When the dogs begin to smell her, will she smell alone?

And I feel, so much depends on the weather. So is it raining in your bedroom?

Actually, that kind of makes sense, OP - at least tonally / emotionally. Try this one: "zig-a-zig-ah".

Why did someone leave a cake out in the rain and why can't you get the recipe?

It's not always the lyrics; it's the sloppy singing of the lyrids.

In a Billy Joel song, the lyrics are: Because you had to be a big shot, didn't you.

He sings: Because you hadda be a big shot, din cha.

I always considered "Plush" a very convoluted ode to a serial killer song.

I love Elton but the lyrics to Rocket Man are phenomenally nonsensical--and he has admitted as much.

Quoted for truth. When I was a kid in the 80s, I thought it was just me, that I wasn't smart enough to understand. As I grew older it dawned on me that the lyrics were just babble that rhymed.

Same with Culture Club.

Walkin' blind across this silver room Lookin' through a smoke menagerie Lookin' at your face inside of me In the darkness, you're Tunisia

Nights are long entropic I can't seem to cope It's cold when I look in your eyes

Where the zebra lightning strikes the room Foreign words are strutted through the gloom Women swooping down like birds of prey Never close but never far away

Tomorrow by Silverchair.

I have no fucking idea what that song is supposed to be about.

R11, I thought the same.

Streisand won an Oscar for that crap.

If it's Cheryl, yes.

I think most of STP's and RHCP's lyrics are nonsensical. The music is good but I don't know what the fuck they're talking about most of the time.

Cyndi, Babs won that Oscar for "composing" the music. Paul Williams wrote the lyrics.

Isn't it alleged that Streisand didn't actually write the melody and just put her name on the song like many big stars do?
