Of course, I hope for most of us, lyrics don't have to make sense. They might evoke feelings or images, create a little world of their own that take us away from the world of doing things by the book or else. They an make a kind of sense while at the same time seeming like non sense. Or sometimes they just fit the meter and rhyming scheme of the song, and the amount of space within a song there is to fill. Muddy Waters, Feel Like Going Home-- Brooks run into the ocean, ocean run into the sea Maybe that's not quite the way we learned it in geography class! Our teachers did their job, but Muddy was a great teacher too, in his own way.
