What's that supposed to mean?

On the long list of things I'll never be any good at, there's figuring out song lyrics. Even if I can make out the words—and I can't about half the time—I still don't know what the hey they're talking about. Makes me feel stupid. (Stupider.)

If all that sounds familiar, you might appreciate a site called Songfacts where you can read about lots of songs and recording artists, and make up your own mind whether the anecdotes are true or not. I was immensely relieved to find out that "A Whiter Shade of Pale" isn't really supposed to make sense, and even Paul Simon doesn't know what "Me and Julio" were doing down by the schoolyard.

It's little victories like these that help to ... well, okay, they don't help much of anything, do they?
