--> ''Slipping my horny candy cane into your existential hole.'''' * Music/SystemOfADown's song "Bounce" on the surface is about a pogo stick. It's really about APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy.

* "House of Fun" by Music/{{Madness}} is about a teenage boy trying to buy condoms from the chemist, but is too embarrassed to actually say "condoms", so he uses euphemisms that the poor lady behind the counter doesn't understand.

When he asks for "party favors, balloons" and "party poppers," she tells him to try the titular joke shop around the corner.

* LimpBizkit's ''Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water''. "Chocolate starfish" here being a euphemism for asshole, while "hot dog flavoured water" comes from an in-joke about how Wes Borland saw flavoured water on sale at a truck stop while touring, and jokingly wondered if they also come in meat or hot dog flavour. * Kelis: "[[GainAxing My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...]]" * When Emilie Autumn performed her song "Misery Loves Company" on a morning news show, she replaced the line "pray for me you fucker, if you fucking dare" with "pray for me you muffin, if you muffin dare". * Bloodhound Gang's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-F16WoHO4A "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo"]] is just full of these.

* In the MeatLoaf song ''I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)'', "that" is a reference to a previous line where the singer names a thing he would never do ("forget the way you feel", "stop dreaming of you", etc.) Due in no small part to the complexity of the lyrical construction, it's also assumed by many listeners to be a euphemism for something else, to the point where Meat Loaf says "What is ''that''?" is the most frequent question he's asked by his fans. * [[ThisIsSpinalTap Spinal Tap]]: ''Big Bottom''. * LadyGaga gives us "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick!" in "Love Game" and "bluffin' with my muffin" in "Poker Face".

* A radio edit of JethroTull's "Locomotive Breath" removed "balls" and spliced in the word "fun" from the previous verse, resulting in the strange expression "got him by the fun." * {{Starflyer 59}}: While their lyrics never use any words worse than "hell", Jason Martin reportedly used (and possibly still uses) euphemisms like "what the eff" and "piece of shin". * Steeleye Span's "Drink Down The Moon" uses "cuckoo's nest" to refer to female genitalia. * Music/{{Aerosmith}} songs are full of this. Most notably the famous Walk This Way has this line "You ain't seen nothin' 'till you're down on a muffin." LadyGaga's line in Poker Face is probably a ShoutOut to this song.

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3d6FjEo_U0 Grace Jeanette's version of Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na)]] by MyChemicalRomance she substitues "hugs" for drugs. And then uses it for another word, winding up with "Hug like a Kennedy". * "Precious" by {{Pretenders}} has "I had my eye on your imperial". It doesn't sound like she means a car. More like a scepter.

* Punk band Music/{{Vagiant}} happens to also work for Harmonix, and as such got one of their songs into ''VideoGame/GuitarHero II''. The song in question is "Fuck the Kells", and had to be heavily edited for the T-rated game (such as replacing nearly all cases of "fuck" with "frack" and renaming the whole song to "FTK"). One memorable change was "You can take this bar, and shove it up your fuckin' ass!" becoming "You can take this car, and fill it up with tons o' gas!" Which... ''could'' be construed as wanting you to hit the road, Jack, and get as far away from them as a full tank will take ya.

* Music/NickiMinaj's song "Anaconda" is a subversion, in that the verses are quite explicit [[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks in their subject matter.]] But the refrain consists of this line repeated over and over again: "My [[ICallHimMisterHappy anaconda]] don't want none unless you got buns!"

* En Vogue's "Don't Let Go (Love)" seems to be a song about coercing a man to make his relationship with the singer official, curiously urging him to "lose control."
