A song that is creepy.

Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen - Neil Sedaka

I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and
means what he says...

I remember a couple of years ago a man rang in to Drivetime on Radio 2 to get Perfect 10 by the Beautiful South played for his daughter's 10th birthday. Simon Mayo was dumbfounded.

C'est La Vie by B*witched. On the surface it's an innocent bubblegum pop song, but pay attention to the lyrics and it's filth.  :o
Honourable mentions also to Green Day (Longview), The Who (Pictures of Lily) & The Vapours (Turning Japanese).
Signature is in quarantine...

I Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl
Bessie Smith from close to 100 years ago

Itís a lot easier to sing karaoke than to sing opera

I'm on Fire by Springsteen is kind of the opposite of this.

It's about unrequited love/lust for a girl who's out of his league but on the surface sounds like an anthem for paedos.

I don't think the song Peaches is about a fruit.

Mungo Jerry's In The Summertime was a massive hit in 1970 but there are a number of reasons why a major label would be unlikely to release it today. Shaggy changed the lyrics when he re-recorded in in 1995.

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find
If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor just do what you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton an' twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good in a lay-by

Bunch of Thyme by Foster & Allen. When they first played that on TOTP, I thought they were singing about a lad who had a lot of time on his hands. Then I realised, it's not "Time" at all but "Thyme" the herb they are singing about. Upon hearing it some years later, realised it's not even "Thyme" they are singing about and it most certainly wasn't even a rose that the sailor gave the poor lass. To keep her reminded. As if she'd ever forget.

The Beatles, Run For Your Life, is definitely the catchiest song about domestic abuse.

This...

It's a good song but the lyrics on the face of it are a bit paedo-esque alright!
