Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> The Who

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.

The Who's, "Pictures of Lily"
The dirty Lyrics:
He said, son now here's some little something And stuck them on my wall And now my nights ain't quite so lonely In fact I, I don't feel bad at all I don't feel so bad at all 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
Why They're dirty:
Clearly this is one of the all-time great songs about taking matters into hand, i.e., wanking.

The Who's, "Squeeze Box"
The dirty Lyrics:
She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I'm so in love with you
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out
Why They're dirty:
The first part here, taken from the song's bridge, seems to suggest wanting certain acts of foreplay. The "in and out" part seems like a way of describing a sexual act. Supposedly the "squeeze box" in the song was about a woman's lover she was having an affair with.
