    Only read this post so far, I'll go back through the rest after posting this.
    I just think it's of it's time. I was a fan back in the day although I don't remember this. I probably would have thought nothing wrong with the lyrics back then anyway.

    Whilst I'm putting one of my favourite bands in the dock for dodgy lyrics

    Under My Thumb
    The Rolling Stones

    Under my thumb
    The girl who once had me down
    Under my thumb
    The girl who once pushed me around
    It's down to me
    The difference in the clothes she wears
    Down to me, the change has come
    She's under my thumb
    And ain't it the truth babe?
    Under my thumb
    It's a squirmin' dog who's just had her day
    Under my thumb
    A girl who has just changed her ways
    It's down to me
    Yes it is
    The way she does just what she's told down to me
    The change has come
    She's under my thumb
    Ah, ah, say it's alright
    Under my thumb
    It's a Siamese cat of a girl
    Under my thumb
    She's the sweetest, hmmm, pet in the world
    It's down to me
    The way she talks when she's spoken to
    Down to me, the change has come
    She's under my thumb
    Ah, take it easy babe
    Yeah
    It's down to me, oh yeah
    The way she talks when she's spoken to
    Down to me, the change has come
    She's under my thumb
    Yeah, it feels alright
    Under my thumb
    Her eyes are just kept to herself
    Under my thumb, well I
    I can still look at someone else
    It's down to me, oh that's what I said
    The way she talks when she's spoken to
    Down to me, the change has come
    She's under my thumb
    Say, it's alright
    Say it's all
    Say it's all
    Take it easy babe
    Take it easy babe
    Feels alright
    Take it, take it easy babe

    David Bowie's "China Girl" is a little suspect. A bit like the man himself..

    Oh, Little China Girl
    Oh, Little China Girl


    [Chorus 1]
    I'm a mess without my little China Girl
    Wake up in the morning where's my little China Girl?
    I hear hearts beating loud as thunder
    I saw the stars crashing down

    [Verse 1]
    I'm feeling tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
    When I look at my China Girl
    I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
    When I look at my China Girl
    I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
    Visions of swastikas in my head
    Plans for everyone
    Its in the white of my eye
    s
    My little china girl
    You shouldn't mess with me
    I'll ruin everything you are
    I'll give you television
    I'll give you eyes of blue
    I'll give you a man who wants to
    rule the world

    [Chorus 2]
    And when I get excited
    My little China Girl says
    Oh baby, Just you shut your mouth
    She says ... shhhhhhh
    She says
    She says


    [Outro]
    Oh, Little China Girl
    Oh, Little China Girl
    Oh, Little China Girl
    Oh, Little China Girl

    Hmmm. Like many of these songs, I've not paid much attention to the lyrics of that before, but I struggle to find this one suspect. I think you have to stretch a bit and add in your own stuff to make that into a qualifier for the list.

    Its an acquired taste, like eating Olives as a kid.

    Have you heard his (her) album I am a Bird Now?

    It's fantastic, beautiful and haunting. 10/10

    Have a listen out to his lyrics. They cover themes not well trodden in music.

    For example For Today I am a Boy is about being a boy and desperately wanting to grow up to be a woman (which he now is).
    Although it contains heartbreaking like;

    "One day I'll grow up, I know a womb within me,
    One day I'll grow up, feel it full and pure,
    But for today I am a child, for today I am a boy"
