Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Leonard Cohen

Sometimes a song you hear for the first time, is innocent and sweet sounding. Then you listen closer to the lyrics, and realize it's talking about stuff you didn't realize. Double-entendres help disguise the filthiest of songs.

Leonard Cohen's, "Chelsea Hotel No.2"
The dirty Lyrics:
Giving me head on the unmade bed,
While the limousines wait in the street.
Why They're dirty:
Most of Leonard Cohen's songs are pretty filthy if you listen, this is just one of the more obvious and well known lines. It shouldn't need explaining as to why it is 'dirty'.

Leonard Cohen's, "Hallelujiah"
The dirty Lyrics:
There was a time you let me know
What's real and going on below But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Why They're dirty:
This verse of the song as stated by many musicians and artists as being referance to that it is homage to the orgasm

Leonard Cohen's, "Light As The Breeze"
The dirty Lyrics:
She stands before you naked, you can see it you can taste it, and she comes to you light as the breeze. Now you can drink it, or you can nurse it, it don't matter how you worship as long as you're down on your knees. So I knelt there at the Delta at the Alpha, the Omega, at the cradle where the river meets the sees, and like a blessing come from heaven for something like a second I was healed and my heart was at ease.
Why They're dirty:
It's about a man giving a woman oral... nay worshiping her pussy... whew... anyone else getting hot?

Leonard Cohen's, "Take This Longing"
The dirty Lyrics:
Take this longing from my tongue,
All the lonely things these hands have done...
Why They're dirty:
He's spanking his monkey, isn't he?
