"I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner

I once heard someone on TV -- I think it was a member of Foreigner -- saying that this song basically killed their career because they lost all credibility as a rock band. Yeah, "Waiting for a Girl Like You" was mellow enough, but adding a choir for "I Want to Know What Love Is" pretty much sealed their fate.

Original lyrics:
I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

Lewd lyrics:
I want to know what love is
I want you to blow me
I want to feel what love is
So kneel down and show me

I've worked on the verses a bit, too. Maybe I'll share them some other time.
