Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Wishin' and Hopin'"
The Dirty Lyrics:
All you gotta do is hold him and kiss him and squeeze him and love him Yeah, just do it And after you do, you will be his
Why They're Dirty:
The song generally sounds like any pre-feminism early 60's song. "Just do it" is downplayed on the record, as if it's got a meaning. It does, and everyone know what it is.
