** Similarly, Creedence Clearwater Revival used to call themselves the Golliwogs before they became famous, they just thought it sounded British without knowing it was an offensive term for black people.

* ''Music/SimonAndGarfunkel'' use the term "one-night stand" to mean "a one-off performance by a touring act" rather than "a sexual encounter with no expectation of further interaction" in the lyrics for "Homeward Bound". Both terms would have been used at the time, and might still be understood, but now the sexual meaning has completely taken over.

** ''What Child Is This'' has Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and ass are feeding?"[note] A bonus for "mean", as it used to mean "lowly, poor" and did not carry negative connotations.[/note] Good luck getting a seventh-grade youth choir to sing 'that' without snickering.

* Many Christian hymns written before the 20th century unfortunately suffer this, a disproportionate number being Christmas carols:

**What Child Is This:

''Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?''

**Do You Hear What I Hear is a mild example, as for modern ears, it sounds [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HearingVoices a bit schizophrenic.]]
**The English version of the Catalan "Fum Fum Fum" has the line "Comes a most important day, let us be gay, let us be gay" (referring to Christmas).
