SLS – Nonsense

For today’s Song Lyric Sunday, Jim asked us to pick songs with nonsense lyrics. I have picked a song that had a really catchy section that still floats around my brain years after it was in the charts…and it did pretty well as far as I know.

Hanson were this cute trio of brothers. They released a track called “Mmmbop” and you may notice there are a hell of a lot of mmmbops throughout the song.

The song was written by Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson.

Oh oh oh oh oh
Yeah

You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast
Oh yeah
And they're gone so fast, yeah
Oh
So hold on the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
And when you get old and start losing your hair
Tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care?
Oh care

Mmmbop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du

Mmmbop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop

Oh yeah
In an Mmmbop they're gone
Yeah yeah

Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
You can plant any one of those
Keep planting to find out which one grows
It's a secret no one knows
It's a secret no one knows
Oh, no one knows
