Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Depeche Mode

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.

Black Celebration album at
Depeche Mode's, "Master And Servant"
The dirty Lyrics:
It's played between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Why They're dirty:
...It took me WAY too long to realize how unsubtle this song is. X_X As for explanation for this submission, well, if it's needed, as is said later in the song, "Domination's the name of the game."

Depeche Mode's, "Strangelove"
The dirty Lyrics:
If you think I've had enough Sea of Love
I'll take more than another river-full
Why They're dirty:
Ahem...just look at the metaphors. Sea of Love? 'Nuff said.

Depeche Mode's, "World In My Eyes"
The dirty Lyrics:
I'll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
Why They're dirty:
It doesn't sound dirty when Dave Gahan sings it, but imagine if a woman were singing it... Highest mountain? Deepest sea? Exactly.
