A few more by The Who:

I'm dreaming from the waist on down
I'm dreaming but I feel tired and bound
I'm dreaming of a day when a cold shower helps my health
I'm dreaming... dreaming - of the day I can control myself


****

Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night
Pictures of Lily solved my childhood problems
Pictures of Lily helped me feel alright


****

I kissed a few and once did sit
On Ivor the Engine Driver's lap
And later with him, had a nap

Speaking of Seger,
They do respect her butt
They love to watch her strut
My cousin said, no, no, no, it's “but”, it says so right in the lyrics on the sleeve; I said listen to the damn song, he listened and conceded, yeah, it's “butt”.

No one's mentioned this one yet. Huh.
My son's School of Rock band played this song. A bunch of 12-13 year olds.

I thought it was a questionable song choice. Of course, I just laughed since they didn't really understand what they were singing.

There's this Canadian dude named David Wilcox, with a song called "Laying Pipe."
It's a pretty good tune! You can google the lyrics.

From Prince's "Little Red Corvette":
I guess I must be dumb
'Cause you had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used


Ew.

And then:
I guess I should have closed my eyes
When you drove me to the place
Where your horses run free
'Cause I felt a little ill
When I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me


Kind of a mixed metaphor there, as horses running free would tend not to have jockeys. Still, we get that she's not actually running a horse stable.
That whole song, really.

"We're an American Band" by Grand Funk Railroad:

Sweet, sweet Connie, doin' her act
She had the whole show and that's a natural fact...

Four young chiquitas in Omaha
Waitin' for the band to return from the show...
Now these fine ladies, they had a plan
They was out to meet the boys in the band
They said, come on dudes, let's get it on
And we proceeded to tear that hotel down....


"Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band:

I hope that when this issue's gone
I'll see you when your clothes are on
Take your car, yes, we will
We'll take your car and drive it
We'll take it to a motel room
And take 'em off in private....

I'm okay alone, but you got something I need
Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out, you see
I been looking around awhile, you got something for me
Oh, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

How about this:

Meri Wilson, "Telephone Man"

Quote:
Hey, baby, I'm your telephone man
You just show me where you want it
And I'll put it where I can
I can put it in the bedroom
I can put it in the hall
I can put it in the bathroom
I can hang it on the wall

"You Make Me Feel..." by Cobra Starship:

Everything you want so let me get up there
I'm the baddest baby in the atmosphere
Tell me what you want so we can do just what you like...
Everything you know I'm flipping upside down
Take you 'round the world
You know I like it loud
Tell me what you want 'cause we can do just what you like....

I always took that literally - he was just standing politely as she was saying her excuses before leaving.

Funny, I'd always heard "as she rises to her apology," as in, she's rising above the situation to be kind and spare his feelings. A quick google check confirms that "he" is indeed the correct pronoun, but it makes less sense to me now. Perhaps you are right about what's doing the rising.

Or the even less subtle line from the same song: "I had a taste of the real world when I went down on you"

I think the award for most cringeworthy - both the line and the song in its entirety is the line " . . . we walked in the garden; we planted a tree" from Heart's drecky All I Wanna Do

Pretty much all of "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel, but especially:

show me round your fruitcage
'cos I will be your honey bee
open up your fruitcage
where the fruit is as sweet as can be

But I made her cry, and I made her scream, when I curdled her cream
from the live version (If You Want Blood) of "The Jack".

I think Billy Squire's Stroke Me might fit into the spirit of this thread. Not 100% sure, however a sampling of the lyrics below seems to be hinting at something.

Stroke me, stroke me
Give me the reason this is all night long
Stroke me, stroke me
(Stroke)
Stroke me, stroke me
Get yourself together boy
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner but man you're just a sinner now
(Stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke)


Maybe Billy's just into rowing or possibly painting. Yeah, nothing to see here.

He is merely serenading the blood vessels in his brain. It is like a reverse psychology type of thing.
