Song lyrics that make no sense...

Just listening to the radio and James blunt has come on,

I can't imagine what my reaction would be if someone whispered lovingly in my ear...

'Your mouth is a revolver, firing bullets in the sky'

What a weird fucking compliment

'You're so vain, I bet you think this song is about you'

Er..isn't it?! Stupid song!

The whole of Wonderwall. What a load of bollocks.

Baby bird... "Your gorgeous" totally creepy and weird and make no sense!

Most of Duran Duran's back catalogue. grin

Jolene. Was singing along to it earlier, but it is farcical that a man doesn't have any part to play in cheating.

Tiggy that made me laugh.

The baby bird lyrics are creepy but do make sense.

Have to agree with Duran Duran

The eighties were pretty good for nonsense lyrics;

Living in a box, living in a cardboard box etc

"I close my eyes, pull back the curtains"

Why not open your eyes, hmm?HMM?

I'll get in early and nominate Desi-ree (sp?) for her "ghost - toast" monstrosity.

ICanHearYou Fri 27-Jun-14 22:07:20

Ooo yes the ghost toast. That used to give me the rage when it was on the radio

Have you come here for forgiveness
have uou come to raise the dead
have you come here to play jesus to the lepers in your head?

Ermmm no I thought this was the post office

MrsToddsShortcut Fri 27-Jun-14 22:08:29

'She smoked a cigarette, both hands behind her back'

?????

ICanHearYou Fri 27-Jun-14 22:08:42

Pedlars, that's about cunniligus isn't it?

Or leopards as I used to think, which makes even less sense

Mrst what's that from?? So familiar

Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains
Lucky I have strong legs like my mother

ThePowerOfMe Fri 27-Jun-14 22:13:40

My love for you will still be strong after the boys of summer have gone
I always thought it was poison summer, which makes much more sense.

Tiggy - The whole point of 'I bet you think this song is about you' is that everyone did know who it was about but he couldn't complain without proving the song right. I think it's inspired! Either he sucks it up and lets her say it, or he complains and everyone knows she is right.

I am going with "Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof" confused

"I close my eyes, pull back the curtains"

Why not open your eyes, hmm?HMM?

He's referring to his power of prophetic dreams, isn't he? So when he closes his eyes (sleeps) he pulls back the curtain obscuring the future, and is able to dream about what is going to happen?

Yes I am a bit of a sad Joseph fangirl. Sorry.

This. Sounds really mystical and cool, but what does it actually mean?

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Some of these make absolute sense
The boys of summer are the visiting boys who arrive for their holiday, all new and exciting. When they have gone home, the local guy will still be loving.

You're so vain is a really clever lyric!
