Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Savage Garden

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.

Savage Garden's, "I Want You"
The dirty Lyrics:
Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola
Why They're dirty:
Darren Hayes: 'It's kind of special thing...I mean I've met 2 or 3 people in my life through my dreams that was so real to me that when I wake up I can actually smell them. I can remember what they looked, tasted like and stuff like that and what 'I Want You' is talking about is a wet dream...basically. (cracks up laughing) I mean listen to the lyrics 'Every time I need to see your face I just close my eyes.''

Savage Garden's, "Universe"
The dirty Lyrics:
I'd like to take you as I found you
Imagine our clothes are on the floor
Feel my caress, so soft and gentle
So delicate, you cried for more
Why They're dirty:
... that, among other lyrics, anyway. I was still a kid when I started listening to them, so I really didn't notice that such a mellow song was partly about sex in the first place. I first noticed when a friend pointed out the lyrics themselves.
