** ''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).

** A 1991 DirectToVideo release called ''Simply Mad About The Mouse'' featured contemporary musicians performing Disney songs, including a hip-hop version of "Three Little Pigs" performed by Music/LLCoolJ: Oddly, LL's version stuck to the original lyrics, complete with the "very gay" line.

* Due to perceived UnfortunateImplications, Debussy's ''Children's Corner No. 6'' is often referred to as "The Cakewalk" instead of its proper title, "The Golliwoggs' Cakewalk". Either that, or the second word is misspelled "golliwogs'" without the double final G. This is an example of this trope because Florence Kate Upton's Golliwogg, which Debussy was specifically referencing, was a heroic figure, the Literature/HarryPotter of his day; it wasn't until EnidBlyton got hold of the character type that it became the racist stereotype it is today (and acquired the present spelling).
