Discussion - Sexy (?) Song Lyrics II

Related image

This is part two of a discussion about sexy (or not) song lyrics. I was musing in the first post about whether popular music is overwhelmingly about love and/ or sex, and I found a wide array of songs that fit both categories. So here's my second go- around of songs with a decidedly sexual nature.  

Let me know what you think. Love 'em? Or hate 'em? What are your faves? And what are your thoughts on sex in music?  

Led Zeppelin- The Lemon Song  

Squeeze me baby, til the juice runs down my leg
Squeeze me baby, til the juice runs down my leg 
The way you squeeze my lemon 
I'm gonna fall right out of bed 

Yes those are actual lyrics. 

Justin Timberlake - Sexyback  

You see these shackles, baby 
I'm your slave
I'll let you whip me if I misbehave 

Van Halen - Beautiful Girls


Sit down right here 
Ooh la la
Think I got it now 

Now I'm a seaside sittin just smoking and drinking at ringside 
on top of the world 
I got a drink in my hand I got my toes in the sand 
All I need is a beautiful girl 

Runner Ups

Everybody Wants Some 
Ice Cream Man
Hot For Teacher
Drop Dead Legs

Maybe just all their songs?

Billy Idol - The Cradle of Love 

I hear you moan 
It's easy, I know how to please me yeah 

If you tease me tonight 
If you sleaze me all right 
If you appease me tonight 
And let me ease you
Cradle of love, alright, yeah

Runner Ups 

Flesh for Fantasy

Miley Cyrus - We Can't Stop 

It's our party we can do what we want
It's our party we can say what we want 
It's our party we can love who we want 
We can kiss who we want
We can see who we want 

INXS - New Sensation  


Sleep baby sleep
Now that the night is over 
And the sun comes 
Like a god into our room
All perfect light and promises  

I don't actually know that this is about sex at all but I just like those lyrics.   

Joan Jett - Do You Wanna Touch 

All you do is sit and stare
Begging on my knees 
Baby won't you please 
Run your fingers through my hair 

Rihanna - S & M 


Cause I may be bad but I'm perfectly good at it 
Sex in the air, I don't care, I love the smell of it 
Sticks and stones may break my bones 
But chains and whips excite me 

Halestorm - Love Bites 


I slither like a viper 
And get you by the neck
I know a thousand ways to help you forget about her 
That bitch can eat her heart out 
Love bites but so do I, so do I 

Lzzy scared me in this video lolol. 

Great White - Lady Red Light 

Lady red light, rock me tonight 
Baby's got a way to make it alright 
Lady red light, rock me tonight 
She knows how to move me 

Deep Purple - Knocking At Your Back Door


 This whole song basically?  

Foghat - I Just Wanna Make Love To You 

I don't want you to be true 
I just wanna make love to you 

Here's a nice cover of the song too via Halestorm and Dorothy  


  1. SexyBack is DEF not about love, and it is a damn good song - the whole album is, really. His best album, I think. I kind of love JT. I joke that it's the longest relationship I've ever been in (going back to when I was 15 and *NSYNC was getting started...)

    1. No it's not, and yes is ha ha although I've never heard the whole album? Ack! And that's funny- hey relationships come in all kinds, right? :) Oh my gosh NSYNC...!!

  2. I like SexyBack as well. I guess you could say I'm pretty accustomed to sexual song lyrics since Prince is my favorite artist. Have you listened to One Thing by INXS? It's probably one of my favorite by them and it has the one you mentioned topped when it comes to sexual innuendos. Great post!

    1. Ooh two for sExyback! And yes Prince has the market cornered- it's hard to shock after some of HIS music. I amost picked Wish We Were Married by him but I knew the f- bombs were there. :) And yes I LOVE The One Thing!!!

  3. Wow, the lyrics in that first song are just... huh. Lol. For some reason I thought that said "Hot Dog for Teacher" at first, and I'm not sure which is worse, haha. Miley Cyrus got a lot of hate for a while, but I actually like that song. The video is weird, but I just really like the sound of the song. It pleases my ears lol.

    1. Aren't they though?? I HAD to use that! And lol yes that would be... iffy as well. Miley does get a lot of hate, but I'll admit *hides* that I kinda like some of her tunes too. LAdy Gaga as well.

  4. Sooo many songs have sexy lyrics or just plain sex in the lyrics. They don't even try to hide it anymore. I don't care, if I like a song, I like it regardless.

  5. I like SexyBack and S&M too! I don't mind if they lyrics are sexy or not if the song is good, it's good :)

  6. Low by Foo Fighters is ridiculously sexual... but somehow no-one seems to notice?

    'You be my passerby/I'll be your one to pass through /Screws inside /Turn so tight /Turning on you /I'm hanging on you, ooh'

    - like, how are you arguing that's not sexual? Lol.

  7. Wow, The Lemon Song is... well, it's too much hahah. And I feel like I never notice how sexual (or in some cases, messed up- still looking at you, Lemon) a song's lyrics are until I see them in print and then I feel like a dumbass for not knowing. Like I would have taken Knocking at Your Back Door literally- like "oh nice, he stopped by for a visit", but seeing it this list... I now understand that isn't what they mean AT ALL, oops? 😂
