"Your Mother Should Know" by the Beatles

One of the challenges for young people who become Beatles fans is reconciling the band's legend as a great rock and roll band with Paul McCartney's penchant for lame, old-timey pop tripe like "When I'm Sixty-Four", "Honey Pie", and of course "Your Mother Should Know".

Original lyrics:
Let's all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born.
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know
Your mother should know

Lewd lyrics:
Let's all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother made porn.
Though she made porn a long, long time ago
Your mother could blow
Your mother could blow

I like the way these lyrics insult the listener: Not only was your mom a porn star, but she was good at it, too!
