-->You can go down and visit the bus stop
-->If you can find the right change or box top
-->And you know you'll have a good time
-->Won't it be fine?

-->I will be glad to give you these fine clothes
-->If you can show me how fast your fortune grows
-->You'll be smart and wear a smile
-->You'll be in style

-->I'll look around and find you a nice bowl
-->If you won't miss a small piece of your soul
-->In a crowd you'll be at ease
-->You'll never sneeze

* WebVideo/BillWurtz does this in just about every song. He has a fondness for [[SillyLoveSongs love]] and [[TheresNoPlaceLikeHome a feeling of going back home and/or where you belong]], but as per [[SurrealHumor his sense of humor]], his songs never really build on a specific theme or narrative despite individual phrases being perfectly coherent. An example from "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0HCZ4YGqbw La de da de da de da de day oh]]":
-->''I went down to the mall, then they closed down the mall''\\
''Guess they don't want me goin' to the mall, cause I'm just too small (too small for the mall!)''\\
''Then I built some trains, and I'm travelin' somewhere new''\\
''It's a wonderful world, but still no you''\\
''It's a wonderful world for two''

* "The Arrangement" by Music/{{Oliver}} can easily be regarded as this.

Added DiffLines:

* "Take Me to Church" by Music/{{Hozier}} can fall into this. WordOfGod is that it's a metaphor about the Catholic Church and its stance on homosexuality, although if you don't know this, the lyrics sound somewhat nonsensical.
-->Drain the whole sea\\
Get something shiny\\
Something meaty for the main course\\
That's a fine-looking high horse\\
What you got in the stable?\\
We've a lot of starving faithful\\

* Music/JohnLennon wrote ''I Am The Walrus'' to deliberately make no sense to baffle music experts and critics trying to find the meanings of TheBeatles' songs.

* With the exception of the chorus, the lyrics to Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biZpPNzt3II Choice Millionaire]]" range from [[WorldSaladLyrics nonsensical]] to flirting with coherence from line to line as the listener attempts to parse them.

* Many heavy metal lyrics have cool\threatening phrases stringed together, even if they don't make much sense. For instance, the chorus of "Two Minutes to Midnight" by Music/IronMaiden is a metaphorical description of the DoomsdayClock. The verses, just random WarIsHell sentences.

* The song "Afternoons in Utopia" by {{Music/Alphaville}} features the most abstract lyrics on an album full of songs pretty abstract to begin with.
-->Mighty Mamoondog drifts across the grass
-->Healing lullabies for Easter time on Mars
-->Paint your hats and shoes with flowers and with stars
-->Singing in metropolitan operas.
