We all have a favourite nonsense song, if not a nonsensical song line.My favourite nonsensical line is "birthday party cheescake, jellybean boom" from It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by R.E.M.What is your's?
The song "America Pie," by Don McLean has lots of nonsensical lyrics. Here is one of my faves:When the jester sang for the king and queenIn a coat he borrowed from James DeanAnd a voice that came from you and me
Jester-Bob DylanKing-ElvisQueen-undecidedvoice from you and me-references the voice of the generationLove that song.
All I can think of is "Uhh Eeh Uh Ah Ah Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang"
...Datta. Dayadhvam. Damyata. Shantih shantih shantih
“Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy diveyA kiddley divey too, Wooden shoe!”This novelty song was composed in 1943, by Milton Drake, Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston. However, the lyrics continue as follows:“If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey, Sing...Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.A kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?”
I haven't heard that for years, Quilligrapher! My father used to sing it.
