Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> John McCutcheon

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.

Family Garden album at
John McCutcheon's, "Rubber Blubber Whale"
The dirty Lyrics:
Everybody rub-a-dub your rubber blubber whale!
Why They're dirty:
I listened to this song a lot as a child (it is on a children's album), but when I listened to this song again a few years ago, something hit me. Now, I respect Mr. McCutcheon and I have no idea what he meant in this verse and I may just have a dirty mind, but considering that this verse seems to have little to do with the rest of the song anyway, I can't help but think that it is innuendo.
