    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? tongue

      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 queen
      In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
      And a voice that came from you and me

        Jester-Bob Dylan
        King-Elvis
        Queen-undecided
        voice from you and me-references the voice of the generation

        Love that song.

    “Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
    A 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.
