** Similarly, the third chorus of "I Still Like Bologna" changes "the sound of a whippoorwhill down a country road" to "…a Chevelle headin' down a gravel road".

Added DiffLines:

* In the folk song "Diamantina Drover", the drover describes how hard the road is getting, but says he "won't be back 'til the droving's done". In the final chorus, he's been going for so long that he now thinks he "won't be back ''when'' the droving's done".

Added DiffLines:

* Gloriana's "Trouble" has a chorus that begins "If you're running around, you better run from me / Pack up your bags and get gone, get gone". The third time around, "pack up your bags" becomes "pack up your [[PrecisionFStrike shit]]" which was obviously {{Bowdlerise}}d back to "bags" on the radio edit.

* Music/MaximumTheHormone's ''[[DeathNote What's up, People?!]]'' has several sections of "HEY HEY! Ningen sanka ai nige ningen fuan ka?", which is what the lyric sheet in the single says. Except the last time they say it, where it's written like what English speakers would certainly hear.

Added DiffLines:

* During live versions of "Michael" from Music/FranzFerdinand's [[Music/FranzFerdinand2004 debut album]], Alex Kapranos often replaces "''Come and dance with me''" with "''Come all over me''" live. He also replaces "''Stubble on my sticky lips''" with "''Stubble on my sticky hips''". Slightly more sexy.

* In "Grandpa’s Advice" by Adie Grey and Dave MacKenzie, the first two iterations of the chorus express Grandpa's opinion that, when driving, it's best to assume all the other drivers on the road are "half asleep or stoned". The last iteration, in which the narrator is passing on Grandpa's advice to her own children, switches this to "drunk or on the phone": a timely update.

* There was one line in the theme song to the the PBS show "[[WesternAnimation/MayaAndMiguel]]" that went "He leads with his head and she follows her heart." After a few airings of the show, it was changed to "They make a great team as they each do their part" because [[ExecutiveMeddling executives apparently considered the other line to be sexist.]]
