"You Are So Beautiful" by Joe Cocker

Billy Preston co-wrote this and recorded it first, but Joe Cocker's interpretation is much more famous.

Original lyrics:
You are so beautiful to me

Lewd lyrics:
You're just a booty call to me

I love this because it turns the whole song upside down. The original is telling this woman how beautiful and special she is, while the lewd lyrics dismiss her as merely a port in a storm.
