Nonsense Lyrics

No
(Oh, la-la) da-ah-ah, ah (ah-ah)
(Uh, uh, uh, yeah)

Think I only want one number in my phone
I might change your contact to "don't leave me alone"
You said you like my eyes and you like to make 'em roll
Treat me like a queen, now you got me feelin' thrown, oh

But I can't help myself
When you get close to me
Baby, my tongue goes numb
Sounds like bleh, blah, blee
I don't want no one else (don't want)
Baby, I'm in too deep
Here's a lil' song I wrote (a song I wrote)
It's about you and me (me)

I'll be honest
Lookin' at you got me thinkin' nonsense
Cartwheels in my stomach when you walk in
When you got your arms around me
Oh, it feels so good I had to jump the octave
I think I got an ex but I forgot him
And I can't find my chill, I must have lost it
I don't even know I'm talkin' nonsense
I'm talkin', I'm talkin' (ah)

I'm talkin' all around clock
I'm talkin' hope nobody knocks
I'm talkin' opposite of soft
I'm talkin' wild, wild thoughts
You gotta keep up with me
I got some young energy
I caught the L-O-V-E
How do you do this to me?

But I can't help myself
When you get close to me
Baby, my tongue goes numb
Sounds like blah, blah, bleh, blee
I don't want no one else (don't want)
Baby, I'm in too deep (too deep)
Here's a lil' song I wrote (a song I wrote)
It's about you and me

I'll be honest (honest)
Lookin' at you got me thinkin' nonsense
Cartwheels in my stomach when you walk in (when you walk in)
When you got your arms around me
Oh, it feels so good I had to hit the octave
I think I got an ex but I forgot him
And I can't find my chill, I must have lost it
I don't even know I'm talkin' nonsense (oh)
I'm talkin', I'm talkin', I'm talkin'

(I'm talkin', I'm talkin' na-na-na) I'm talkin', I'm talkin'
Blah, blah, blah, blah, uh-uh-uh-uh
Ah
I don't even know anymore
(Oh)

This song catchier than chickenpox is
I bet your house is where my other sock is
Woke up this morning, thought I'd write a pop hit
How quickly can you take your clothes off pop quiz?

That one's not gonna make it
Most of these aren't gonna make

What is the Meaning of Nonsense?

"Nonsense" by Sabrina Carpenter is a playful and flirtatious song that explores the feeling of being so infatuated with someone that it leaves you tongue-tied and acting out of character. The lyrics suggest a deep attraction, to the point where she forgets about her ex and loses her composure ("I think I got an ex but I forgot him / And I can't find my chill, I must have lost it"). The repeated phrase "I'm talkin' nonsense" underscores the idea that this overwhelming attraction makes her feel disoriented and unable to articulate her feelings coherently. The song also conveys a sense of youthful energy and spontaneity, as seen in lines like "I got some young energy / I caught the L-O-V-E". Overall, it's a lighthearted portrayal of young love and infatuation.
