Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Judy Collins

Sometimes a song you hear for the first time, is innocent and sweet sounding. Then you listen closer to the lyrics, and realize it's talking about stuff you didn't realize. Double-entendres help disguise the filthiest of songs.

Judy Collins', "Anna Thea"
The dirty Lyrics:
He will rob you of your flower and he'll hang me from the gallows.
Why They're dirty:
I was about to present this song once for a school project, but at first didn't understand what the flower had to do with anything. When I asked my mom, she explained that it was a euphemism for her virginity, which led to an 'Oh' moment. I realized that ultimately this song is about a woman who vainly attempts to use sex to bribe a judge from executing her brother.
