'Yes yes yes how deliciously meaningless
Yes yes yes effervescently meaningless
Yes yes yes it was beautifully meaningless
Yes yes yes it was profoundly meaningless
Yes yes yes definitively meaningless
Yes yes yes comprehensively meaningless
Yes yes yes magnificently meaningless
Yes yes yes how incredibly meaningless
Yes yes yes unprecedentedly meaningless
Yes yes yes how mind-blowingly meaningless
Yes yes yes unbelievably meaningless
Yes yes yes how infinitely meaningless'

In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt explains he was hoping to conjure 26 lines like the above for the fadeout of this song, with qualifiers running from A to Z, right up to 'zealously meaningless'. He didn't.

'Ha ha ha it was totally meaningless'

LD Beghtol adds:

This contains a reference to Psychedelic Furs vocalist Richard Butler’s trademark sneering "Ha ha ha!” from the song India [lyrics] and others. I'm a terriffic Furs fan (especially the eponymous first album and Forever Now) and Stephin and I have often discussed why and how they were good, and why and when they sucked. So that line is Stephin's sly homage to '80s icon, Mr Butler.
