Songs With Filthy Lyrics: 11 Hits That Are Nastier Than You Thought
Say what you will about the simple lyrics to mindless pop songs, but there is definitely an art to sneaking adult themes into hits that everyone from 8-80 will sing along to. If you can get your granny and your nephew to hit the dance floor and grind it out to Ginuwine's "Pony" without them realizing what's going on, good on ya.
And, honestly, it happens way more than you would think. You're singing along in the car and stop to think, "that's nice that Fifth Harmony have a song about people like me who have a home office... I really like that 'Work From Home.' Wait, WHAT????" (Yeah, that's not about a cute couple that makes adorable "Crows Before Hoes" Game of Thrones knock-off t-shirts.)
It's dirty -- super, super dirty. Here are 11 songs that you already knew were sexy, but are actually filthier than you realized.
Fifth Harmony, "Work From Home"
Key Lyrics: "Let's put it into motion/ I'mma give you a promotion/ I'll make it feel like a vacay, turn the bed into an ocean."

DNCE, "Cake By the Ocean"
Key lyrics: "See you licking frosting from your own hands/ Want another taste, I'm begging, yes ma'am/ I'm tired of all this candy on the dry land, dry land."

Bruno Mars, "Locked Out of Heaven"

Not-so-subtle message: See previous.
Demi Lovato, "Cool for the Summer"
Key lyrics: Take me down into your paradise/ Don't be scared 'cause I'm your body type/ Just something that we wanna try/ 'Cause you and I/ We're cool for the summer."

Not-so-subtle message: Three is NOT a crowd.
Trey Songz, "Dive In"
Key lyrics: "Drip, baby we don't need no towel/ I'mma be the one who rub your body now/ Won't drown ain't even coming up for air now/ I just keep my head down (down, down)/ Swim for days, I can doggy paddle all kind of ways."

Flo Rida, "Whistle"
Key lyrics: "Show me your perfect pitch, you got it my banjo/ Talented with your lips, like you blew out a candle/ So amusing, now you can make a whistle with the music/ Hope you ain't got no issue, you can do it/ Give me the perfect pitch, ya never lose it."
