* In the movie ''Film/HeartbreakRidge'' Creator/ClintEastwood's platoon sing "Model T Ford and a tankful of gas, mouthful of pussy and a handful of ass!" while jogging past their stuck-up CO, Major Powers, who is standing next to a female marine. She is a good deal more amused than he is.

* In ''[[Literature/HaroldShea The Mathematics of Magic]]'' by L. Sprague deCamp and Fletcher Pratt, HaroldShea and his companions are captured by The Blatant Beast, and it demands that they recite an epic poem that it hasn't heard before as their ransom for release. The only problem is that the only lengthy poem any of them knows by heart, that the Beast hasn't already heard, is ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ballad_of_Eskimo_Nell The Ballad of Eskimo Nell]]''.

For professional musician's songs with sexual themes, see IntercourseWithYou. Compare the SoundOff, which is similar in that it can be quite rude and is typically a piece of oral tradition, but is somewhat less musical.

Many bawdy songs are themselves trope-laden, being replete with stereotyped characters, "wardrobe malfunctions", slapstick and cliches. Many are also examples of [[SatireParodyPastiche pastiche and parody]] or possibly FanFic, being set to the tune of "real" folk songs, pop songs etc.: for example, "Irian Jaya" to the tune of "Mull of Kintyre," "Masturbation" to "Alouette," "Incest is Best" and "Bestiality's Best" both to the tune of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport." Sometimes even national anthems ("Life Presents a Dismal Picture" to "Deutschland Über Alles" and "Ou Est La Papier" to "La Marseillaise"). Prisoners at Colditz Castle in UsefulNotes/WW2 had a lot of creative fun re-writing the German national anthem; the mildest version they came up with was "Deutschland, Deutschland Ünter Alles."

** The song is called the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonel_Bogey_March Colonel Bogey March]]," and has been a favorite for adding smutty lyrics to since 1914. It was supposedly inspired by an officer who whistled the first two notes instead of shouting "fore" on the golf course, so the song was insulting even when given its original title.
*** Or not, considering that a "bogey" then, was what we today call a "par". Being called a scratch-player is probably NOT an insult anywhere.
** "Colonel Bogey March" inspired a CallBack of sorts about a decade after ''Bridge On The River Kwai'' was released when the Smothers Brothers did a comedic performance of the South African marching tune "Marching to Pretoria" in which they briefly stopped the song to discuss their favorite marching songs. They briefly reference "Colonel Bogey" (which they mistakenly call "March of the River Kwai") and note that you could never sing it because it was all whistling...then surmise that the song's lyrics must have been dirty, which is why they had to be whistled instead. Then, when they start singing again, one of them shifts to whistling just as their improvised lyrics are getting ''really'' naughty, prompting the audience to laugh.
* In the movie ''Film/HeartbreakRidge'' Creator/ClintEastwood's platoon sing ''Model T Ford and a tankful of gas, mouthful of pussy and a handful of ass!" while jogging past their stuck-up CO, Major Powers, who is standing next to a female marine. She is a good deal more amused than he is.

** Two of Nanny Ogg's favorite tunes are "The Hedgehog Can Never Be Buggered at All" and "A Wizard's Staff Has a Knob on the End". In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', a drunken banker is described as singing "the sort of song that is hilarious to rugby players and anyone under the age of eleven". There was also the song "All The Little Angels (How Do They Rise Up)", a marching song from the novel ''Discworld/NightWatch'', and described as the best kind of song for old soldiers--sentimental, with dirty bits.
*** Fans have of course written their own lyrics to Nanny Ogg's songs, some of which were printed in the aptly named fanzine ''The Wizard's Knob''. You really ''don't'' want to read them. This creativity on the part of the fans led to a priceless dedication in the UK edition of ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'': "To all those people - and why not? - who, after the publication of ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', deluged the author with their version of the words of 'The Hedgehog Song'.
