2 come to mind instantly... the Rolling Stones" Beast of Burden", as my buddy thought they sang "big Cheeseburger" an Eddie Money tune "Two tickets to paradise". He thought Eddie said "Two dicks in a pair of tights"... Honorable mention, the Scorpions classic "Big city lights" also referred as "Big titty dykes"...
