Dated Song Lyrics:

"Who Do You Love"
The Dated Lyrics:
Just 22 and I don't mind dying.
Why They're Dated:
George still doesn't mind dying, but as he was born in 1950, he can't say he's just 22. (In fact, when he released the album in '78, he was 27.)

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Reeling and Rocking"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Now I was a little slow, but she wasn't late.
Why They're Dirty:
It just dawned on me one day, that he meant he didn't pull out in time, but her period wasn't late. And I was in my 30's when I realized that THAT was what he meant. In the live version, he does say he wants to get "dirty one time".

Boasting in Song Lyrics:

"Bad to the Bone"
The Boasting Lyrics:
I broke a thousand hearts, before I met you
I'll break a thousand more baby, before I am through
And
I make a rich woman beg, I'll make a good woman steal
I'll make an old woman blush, and make a young woman squeal
Comments:
These are the lyrics he's using to try to win the love of a woman. I just don't think she's going to be too impressed by his boasting of past conquests or believe that he wants to be only hers and hers alone.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Bad To The Bone"
The Lyrics:
When I walk the streets, kings and queens step aside.
Every woman I meet, they all stay satisfied.
Why:
"Every woman" is actually singular, because you say "every woman IS", not "every woman ARE". George should have said either "Every woman I meet, SHE stays satisfied" or "ALL the WOMEN I meet". Second of all, it's more common for the so-called "singular they" to be used when the gender is unknown. This is one of the rare cases where someone refers to a singular person as "they" despite the gender being identified.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone"
This is the earlier song, on a later album he has the same exact song with completely different lyrics. (*"Can't Be Satisfied"*) Kind of like John Fogerty accused of ripping off "Run Through the Jungle" for "The Old Man Down the Road."KQC
