The Muppets are here to prove that lyrics don’t have to be about love, heartache, loss or be in any way profound to be popular. ‘Mah Nà Mah Nà’ is one of the Muppets’ most famous ditties, beloved around the world, and it means…absolutely nothing.
Actually, this song was written by Piero Umiliani for the Italian movie Sweden: Heaven and Hell (Svezia, inferno e paradiso). It contains nothing but nonsense words and scat singing, and yet it’s pretty impossible not to sing along! 🙂
