There's a million of 'em.

 

Old Man

by Neil Young                     The lyrics don't make much sense but instrumentally, melodically and performance-wise, its a great number.

 

[Verse 2]
Lullabies, look in your eyes
Run around the same old town
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past
But I'm all alone at last
Rolling home to you

 

One that I always remember for really incongruous lyrics was:

American Pie

Don McLean

This one has the dumbest lyrics of all time. 

 

Light as a fairy and wore number 9 shoes, wtf?

 

Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes, without topses
Sandals were for Clementine

 

Sounds to me like humor. A joke. A fanciful funny. But I dunno. Maybe herring boxes without topses were the bees knees way back when.
