** Many others, but "Ali Click" and "Miss Shapiro" (the latter recorded with fellow ex-RoxyMusic member Phil Manzanera) are two of the defining examples.

* In the whole long career of Music/LeonardCohen it's hard to think of an example that doesn't fit this trope.

* {{Wire}} are notorious for this trope, or rather for very subtly subverting it: Quite often, their least comprehensible lyrics are actually loaded with meaning. "Outdoor Miner", for example, sounds like utter gibberish, but is actually about a chlorophyll-eating insect. [[LyricalDissonance And it's really catchy]].

Added DiffLines:

* This is a staple of Bike For Three!'s songs, which range from having a vague story ("Lazarus Phenomenon") to being incomprehensibe ("All There Is To Say About Love"). For example, "Nightdriving":
-->Milk's been spilt, the wall's been built,
-->Bones like glass and painted-over guilt,
-->Unanswered questions I fed on in prison
-->Opposite fears in head-on collision.

** "Because" opens with the lyrics "[[FetishFuel Because the world is round, it turns me on]]". It only makes less and less sense as the song goes on.

** Don't you understand what I mean, what I say so?



** Big the Cat's theme from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. [[http://www.stlyrics.com/songs/s/segasoundstudio9560/lazydayslivininparadise561985.html Here are the lyrics]].
*** Some lines make sense, but... some of them definitely ''don't''. Lines like "Happy, Happy Muy Amable", and "Okay, all you have to do is sit up, look left, right, up, and down" make me wonder what Ted Poley was smoking... At least it fits [[CloudCuckoolander Big]]'s character.
** And from the same game, we have "My Sweet Passion (Theme of Amy Rose)". Or at least, one line of it.

** And from From the same game, we have "My Sweet Passion (Theme of Amy Rose)". Or at least, one line of it.



*** It's possible it's talking about a breed of hairless cat known as the Sphinx, but if so... WHY?!
*** Some fans assume this was some form of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar innuendo]].
** Knuckles' theme, "Unknown from M.E.", also frequently devolved into this, particularly in the outro:
---> Knock knock, it's Knuckles / The bloat thrower / Independent flow-er
*** It's "boat thrower" not "bloat thrower", referring to Knuckles' [[SuperStrength Super Strength]], however it's still is this trope because at no point in the game does he throw any boats at anyone and there's no need to specify boats as the thing he's throwing at you.
*** Actually, it's ''neither'' of those. It's "blow thrower", which refers to his [[GoodOldFisticuffs fighting style]] and [[SuperStrength Super Strength]].



** VideoGame/SonicGenerations: The Time Eater's theme is an OminousLatinChanting example. "Ovi, mori, animus, tempus..." All those words make sense in the context of the story, but they were just sort of thrown together.



* The English lyrics from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' occasionally have some awkward metaphors or mispronounced emphasis, but most of the time are mostly-sensicial and tie into the game's themes. Then out came the ''Reincarnation'' [[TheMerch remix album]], which adds a second verse to the main battle them "Reach Out to the Truth". While a couple of the lines are okay if a second look is taken at them ("Bleach out cock and bull" refers to washing away lies, for example), most of the entire second verse seems to be completely random, featuring lines such as "Flooded apple pie" and "It's already disgusting/To dance with your palm".

** Music/TheStoneRoses did something similar to "On Earth My Nina" with "Don't Stop": They basically played along to a backwards recording of their song "Waterfall", then wrote new lyrics based on mondegreens of the backwards vocals. Resulting in things like "Pain, blue singer / he's pain, just a guitar"

to:

** "Thinking Machine" is a CallAndResponseSong in which John Linnel plays a researcher communicating with a gibberish-spouting chat-bot played by John Flannsberg.
