Dated Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

The Kingston Trio's, "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm"
The dated Lyrics:
Sometimes gay King Henry gives a spread
For all his pals and gals and ghostly crew.
Why They're dated:
This song is about King Henry VIII of England. Although wonders never cease as to what new things are revealed about historical figures, I've never heard of any suggestion that Henry VIII was gay in the predominant present day sense of the word. The song as originally written lends itself to little confusion on this matter, but might confuse some younger listeners today!
