Okay, I've got a few:

1. crop, carpet, insensitivity
2. planes, hand, smoking, force, mom
3. looking, biscuit, quiet


I'm pretty sure nobody is going to get the second one, even with the two extra words I added.

Come on, people! I'd've figured somebody would've Googled the lyrics by now.
Here's a hint: the second song became very popular in Britain in the early 1980s, and the 1st and 3rd songs were supposed to imitate the style of the 2nd.

No. And if those words also appear in that song, then it's purely coincidental.
