Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Peter Gabriel

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.

Peter Gabriel's, "Blood of Eden"
The dirty Lyrics:
At my request, you take me in
In that tenderness, I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss
I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes
Why They're dirty:
Well, is it or is it not? It could mean anything, but it also pretty much could mean ... you know what ;o)

Peter Gabriel's, "Kiss That Frog"
The dirty Lyrics:
Sweet little Princess, let me introduce his frogness
You alone can get him singing,
He's all puffed up, wanna be your king
Oh, you can do it, c'mon, c'mon
Lady kiss that frog
Why They're dirty:
The first time I ever heard the song I knew that the song was a metaphor for oral sex.

Peter Gabriel's, "Modern Love"
The dirty Lyrics:
When I pull out my pipe she screams out of tune
Why They're dirty:
question is, did he also get arrested for indecent exposure?

Peter Gabriel's, "Sledgehammer"
The dirty Lyrics:
1.)You could have a steam train,
if you just laid down your tracks
2.) Open up your fruit cage,
cause I will be your honey bee,
open up your fruit cage,
where the fruit there is as sweet as can be
Why They're dirty:
Not until about 2 years after initially hearing it. The first lyric is a long list of different types of lovers the woman can have. The second lyric is an obvious plee for him to perform oral sex.
