Nonsense Songs

There is a strong tradition of 'Nonsense' in poetry and song ranging from the surreal to the absurd. Some are just random words set to music while others are definite attempts to be bizzarre. Nonsense is different from bizzarre and they both cross genres. Weird Al Yancovic (Driving my truck with my High Heels On) does bizzarre, Edward Lear does Nonsense.

Ging gang gooly is a nonsense song known to many.
