#SLS ~ 12/12/21

Jim by way of Amy at ai love music aisasami prompts us with songs that have Nonsense lyrics. This sounds fun 🀩 Okay, the song that immediately came to mind takes me back to the gym at Central Catholic High School circa 1980 something for Friday night dances. We didn’t really dance to this song though unless you can call jumping around like pogo sticks dancing. Mild mosh pit vibes. Hey that makes me think about another nonsense song. See below for a twofer.

Don’t think me unkind
Words are hard to find
The only cheques I’ve left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
And when their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and rapes me

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no one’s jamming their transmission
‘Cos when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true

(De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true)

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da was written by Sting and performed by the Police

  1. Great song selections Jill. I love both of these groups. De do do do, de da da da Is all I want to say to you. I think the B-52’s had tourette’s syndrome, as they shouted out a lot of crazy lyrics all the time.
