* "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" from Disney/{{Cinderella}} is 25% intelligible, and the rest of its lyrics are nonsensical gibberish. Justified, since most of it consists of magic words.

--> Dear catastrophe, fingerprints and the night patrols
--> that chase moths, and comets like you
--> between love letters typed at the computer
--> and then we'll tremble like California, love, in our separated bedrooms
--> nailing down stars, declaring wars, writing on walls that you rarely think of me

* Music/TheBand's "Chest Fever": "'She's stoned' said the Swede / And the Moon Calf agreed / But I'm like a viper in shock / With my eyes in the clock." The lyrics were reportedly made up on the spot as "filler", just picking random rhyming phrases that fit the right number of syllables, with the intent to go back later and rewrite them. But they never did and ended up just keeping the filler as the actual lyrics.
