Silly Songs

My girls have this Cd set that has a bazillion kids songs on it. Some of them are classics. Some of them are newer songs. Some of the songs just don't make sense, like Bonnie lying over the ocean or Feeling like a morning star. Seriously? They couldn't think of better lyrics! And then there are the songs that just state the obvious. For example:
"She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes."
She will? You mean she won't be coming around the mountain when she goes? I'm glad you cleared that up for me.
How about this one:
"The grand ole duke of York, he had 10,000 men. He marched them up to the top of the hill and he marched them down again. And when they were up, they were up,"
Now way?
"And when they were down, they were down,"
Really?
"And when they were only half-way up, they were neither up nor down."
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
